Ex-‘Idol’ runner-up Lambert thrills full house at Warner

By Dave Richards
Adam Lambert’s Glam Nation is apparently every much as wide open and diverse as the country he calls home.
Tuesday’s sold-out crowd of 2,200 fans at the Warner Theatre featured fans of all shapes, sizes, ages and hair colors — including pink — and boys with hair dyed as black as Lambert’s.
What unites them? Jamie Smith, of Hamilton, Ontario, had no trouble explaining what she likes after seeing Lambert for the third time Tuesday, while planning for No. 4 in Montreal on Friday: “His talent. His attitude. And that he’s sexy. Make sure you mention that,” said Smith, 17.
She wore tights with Lambert photographs emblazoned all over them, and the same top hat he sported for the show’s opening number, “Voodoo.”
Jane Binette drove in from Buffalo with daughter Giselle, 15, to see Lambert for the first time.
“It’s a great show,” she said. “It was worth the wait. His voice is great; his range is amazing.”
Enthusiastic fans danced in the aisles to ’80s hits by Journey and Billy Idol during intermission. That’s how pumped they were to see Lambert, who finished second on “American Idol” in 2009 and commands an intensely loyal following.
Lambert emerged about 15 minutes later to screams. Shouts of “We love you, Adam!” rang out periodically during his fast-paced but relatively short 65-minute set.
With his charismatic stage presence, dark looks and thrusting dance moves, he comes across at times like an Elvis for the 21st century. He’s just starting out; he’s nowhere near that level of total command and confidence yet. But his fans can sense it in him.
Tuesday’s Glam Nation tour was part theater, part camp, part rock ‘n’ roll with lasers, and part disco party with Lambert covering all his favorite musical bases.
In top hat and purple coat, he came out slamming with songs from the deluxe edition of “For Your Entertainment” — “Voodoo” and “Down the Rabbit Hole.”
Then came his reinvented cover of Johnny Cash’s “Ring of Fire” with its Middle Eastern, exotic undercurrent. Lambert effectively slowed it down midway through with an acoustic set that included potent torch song “Soaked” and first big hit, “Whataya Want From Me.”
He closed with high-energy, choreographed dance songs, including “Strut” and “Music Again” before reaching his current hit, the propulsive, Euro-disco-flavored “If I Had You.”
“This song is what this show’s all about,” Lambert said. “You can have fame and money and sex — and all that’s good — but it doesn’t mean much unless you’re connected with love.”

Adam Lambert Wows Fans With T-Rex Cover In Erie

   

Screencap by @rntmom from video by @suz526

Adam Lambert went back to his glam rock roots at tonight’s concert (Aug. 10) at the Warner Theatre in Erie, PA. Lambert and his band performed a surprise encore – a cover of the T-Rex classic 20th Century Boy. The song, which was never featured on a T-Rex album, rose to #3 in 1973.  Placebo also performed this song as fictitious band The Flaming Creatures in the film Velvet Goldmine.

 The performance adds a little glam rock flavour to the Glam Nation Tour and is the talk of Twitter tonight. gorgeousnerd wrote: “Adam Lambert did “20th Century Boy” at a show. I squeed so much I’m lightheaded.” Joey_Dee wrote: “Holly cow O_O Adam Lambert covers new song in his tour, a T-Rex’s song: 20th Century Boy! Haha it’s also from his fave movie Velvet Goldmine.” LightLoveAdam wrote: ” I hope you keep 20th Century Boy. You killed it. :-)”

Additionally, within minutes of performing the song, it was entered in Wikipedia.

In other Lambert news, the advance word is that the Ryan Tedder, Aimee Mayo and Chris Lindsey penned Sleepwalker will be the next single off the Platinum album For Your Entertainment.

Lyrics

Oow
Friends say it’s fine, friends say it’s good
Ev’rybody says it’s just like rock’n’roll
I move like a cat, talk like a rat
Sting like a bee, babe I wanna be your man
Well it’s plain to see you were meant for me, yeah
I’m your boy, your 20th century toy

Friends say it’s fine, my friends say it’s good
Ev’rybody says it’s just like rock’n’roll
Fly like a plane, love like a car
Hold lots of hands, babe I wanna be your man – oh
Well it’s plain to see you were meant for me, yeah
I’m your toy, your 20th century boy

20th century toy, I wanna be your boy
20th century toy, I wanna be your boy
20th century toy, I wanna be your boy
20th century toy, I wanna be your boy

Friends say it’s fine, friends say it’s good
Ev’rybody says it’s just like rock’n’roll
Move like a cat, talk like a rat
Sting like a bee, babe I wanna be your man
Well it’s plain to see you were meant for me, yeah
I’m your toy, your 20th century boy

20th century toy, I wanna be your boy
20th century toy, I wanna be your boy
20th century toy, I wanna be your toy
20th century boy, I wanna be your toy

  3. Just want to give you this one – the original! I´ve been dreaming that Adam – some day – would cover T.Rex songs, and most of all my two favourites of which this is one! Without Marc Bolan no Glam Rock!

  5. “It’s late at night (early morning!) and I can’t sleep…missing you just runs too deep.” As far as I’m concerned, your blog is my lifeline. You never disappoint and you inspire others to contribute every bit of information they can find, so that this is the place to go for all things “Adam”!!!
    I disappoint my family and friends because of my obsession. One friend, the wife of a minister tells me the “devil” has me firmly in his grip and I must fight him and give up this “curse”!
    My “best friend” thinks there needs to be an “intervention” and my children and grandchildren just shake their heads and give me a “look” when I try to talk about Adam.
    “But, I know this flame isn’t dying, so nothing can stop me from trying.” Maybe it is time for a miracle!! I hope before I leave this earth, the scoffers find out what I’m talking about and realize that the “phenomenom” that is Adam is a once-in-a-lifetime occurrance and Mom/Grandma wasn’t crazy after all!!
    Thanx Gloria for making my day complete once again!
