‘Idol’s’ Adam Lambert makes magic in S.F.

Aidin Vaziri, Chronicle Pop Music Critic Sunday, July 25, 2010

Chad Ziemendorf / The Chronicle

Adam Lambert appears in a puff of purple smoke like a magician during his opening “Voodoo” number.


Making an entrance worthy of the celebrity magician Criss Angel, Adam Lambert certainly didn’t look like a reality television castoff at the Warfield on Friday.

Wearing a top hat, fringed overcoat and about a dozen layers of eyeliner, he literally appeared in a puff of purple smoke delivering the slinking set opener, “Voodoo.”

As he pushed his zombie-like dancers around the stage, Lambert hit the first of the night’s many glass-shattering refrains, “You’re the hunter and I’m your prey.” An interesting cross section of grandmas and club kids made up most of the sold-out audience.

Despite his disappointing second-place finish last year on the eighth season of “American Idol,” the 28-year-old San Diego native’s popularity has only rocketed since breaking free of the show. Last week, his 2009 album “For Your Entertainment” topped the 1 million sales mark while offers for movie roles and television specials came flooding into his agent’s office.

So while the current crop of “Idol” alumni struggle to fill seats with their own packaged tour this summer, Lambert had little trouble selling out dates on his big-budget Glam Nation tour, which also included a second concert Sunday with his fellow “Idol” contestant Allison Iraheta and former Michael Jackson guitarist Orianthi once again opening.

Those concerned that Lambert might tone down his act after the uproar caused by his American Music Awards performance (and subsequent banning by the producers of “Good Morning America”) could rest easy.

Lambert put his extensive background in the performing arts to good use during his hourlong Warfield set. He probably would have been more at home at the Orpheum Theatre just down the street.

Lambert’s cover of Johnny Cash’s “Ring of Fire” dripped with even more stylized pomp than the version he did on the television show. And he could unfurl his full vocal acrobatics on a run through the Lady Gaga-penned “Fever” without having to worry about facing the wrath of Simon Cowell’s rolling eyes.

The concert’s centerpiece was an acoustic segment made up of the songs “Whataya Want From Me,” “Soaked” and “Aftermath” – all seemingly custom made to reinforce his narrative as a pop outsider storming the gates. “Wanna scream out, no more hiding,” he sang on the last one, milking every word for deep blue melancholy. “Don’t be afraid of what’s inside.”

Given the relatively short set time, the constant stream of musical interludes designed to give Lambert time to slip through his many varied black outfits felt like momentum killers. His brief between-song banter, meanwhile, sounded like it was pilfered from a rock star manual that had been lying backstage since 1986.

But Lambert thundered through the rest of the night with remarkable confidence, leading the charge on “Music Again” and looking like an extra from Duran Duran’s “Wild Boys” video in a particularly fervent take on the new single, “If I Had You.”

The encore, meanwhile, saw Lambert revert to type. Reviving a pair of songs that helped lift him through the ranks on “Idol” – Tears For Fears’ “Mad World” and Led Zeppelin’s “Whole Lotta Love” – he reminded his fans why they put their faith (and votes) in him in the first place.

San Francisco Fan Comment…. from  Random Medley

(please request IIHY from SF radio stations!  Let’s get this done!)   

I was there. Adam Rocked. It was great. Even if you had never seen Adam before (several around me had not), everyone was way over the top mesmerized, enthralled, thrilled, happy +++++++++++++. The local media just sucks for covering Adam. The SF Chronicle never mentioned him. Friday morning they has an article about Orianthi and the only mention of Adam was that she was playing WITH him (wtf). They don’t play Adam on the radio very much here. I have never heard IIHY on the radio. Most of our media is owned by Clear Channel, with their agenda (to protect us I guess). Which is weird as can be because San Francisco and the Bay Area have to be in the top 2 gayest places on earth. I’m waiting for tomorrows Chron. to see if there is even a mention.   

If there was anything negative about last night it would be the sound system. You couldn’t hear a word for Orianthi but her guitar rocked and Adam sounded a bit like he was sucking helium. Everyone noticed the sound but we didn’t care. He put 150% into it and was giving and getting a great time.   

One of the locals (Eric) organized a pre-party and handed out 1500 blue glosticks with instructions to take them out and follow a theatre wide pattern during WWFM. Then before the show, Eric told Monte to tell Adam that we had a present for him and to watch for it. One of the fans in front said that Adam had tears rolling down his cheeks when he saw us. It was beautiful.

Adam Lambert Would Love Movie Work   

When asked whether he had any acting ambitions, the For Your Entertainment singer explained: “It’s definitely something I’d like to try. Who knows?   

“Maybe I’ll go back to the stage, but I have my eye set on trying to maybe end up in a movie at some point. There are some things brewing under the surface right now. I’m trying!”

  5. I finally came up with some solutions to my little “I Get So Lost in the “adamquotedaily” Blog that I Don’t Get TO Do Most of my RW To-DO List”
    1. i gave up TV (unless Adam is on ellen or something!)
    2. i am buying a Power Net Book – all that time wasted just standing in line at the grocery store, at red lights, waiting in the doctor/dental office etc.. spent more “productivly” watching Adam!
    3. getting up 1-2 hours earlier each day cuz sleep is way over-rated!
    4. giving up “kick-boxing” class – this blog is a better-er cardio work-out!
    5. living on “take out” and using paper plates – no time wasted cooking or doing dishes!

    PROBLEM SOLVED! PRIORITIES IN ORDER! thanks agian for this awesome blog that makes everyday seem like Christmas!
