Well guys, here I sit, at my computer, in Richmond, BC.....having just returned from Coquitlam WHERE I SAW ADAM FUCKING LAMBERT IN CONCERT 20 FEET AWAY FROM ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I came here with tickets for tomorrow night with my sister. Well, my sister is a professional, a DeadHead....we decided to head over to Coquitlam to see if we might be able to drum up a couple of cheap seats. Got to the box office and they had a couple of single returns, but they were pricey...we walked away to contemplate and then ran into "Susie" a woman from Liverpool with an extra ticket. We bought that one for $40 and then got one of the returns at the box. As my sister said, "Look, when you follow the Dead, you just go to every show you possibly can, we have to go. We're here."

My sister was happy to go with me tonight. She lets me forward youtubes, articles, passionate emails about Adam. Her kids love his music, etc--but she has never really pursued her interest except through me. Well she is now completely and utterly over the moon! She made her way down to the floor from her rather nosebleed seat. I stayed in my pretty awesome seat with my newfound friend Laurie. Laurie was a casual fan from Vancouver. After tonight I found her waiting outside the back door with the rest of the crays (moi included). She's joined the crays. I gave her the name of this site. She took some awesome pics. I didn't bring my camera, not really believing I would be going tonight!!

Adam was on fire tonight. He glittered--rhinestone boots, Cavalli jacket, sparkly (finale) brooch, glittery eyes. The atmosphere was definitely clubby, dance-intensive. Or maybe that was me. I didn't sit down the whole time (apologies to anyone behind me) and went wild. The energy was AWESOME!!! It was different from Fantasy Springs (from what I saw on Youtube). It was REALLY FUN!!! I just felt myself grinning uncontrollably the whole time. The theater was really hot--Adam actually TOOK OFF HIS JACKET. We saw arm candy, sweet, yummy arm candy.

There were lots of pods of boys--and some lookers to boot!! I think there were plenty of Shags of Show for Adam to choose from ;-) I did see a couple of stalker faces I recognize, but all in all the crowd was a nice mix. When Adam asked who was local, a huge cheer went up. He asked who traveled to see him and that got a big cheer, but not as big as the local.

Adam boogied, he preened, he strutted, he vamped and vogued. Anyone who was a casual fan before this show came away a devotee. He was magnificent.


and later...

Hi All, I plan on writing more in depth (if I have any brain cells left) after tonight's show....but I have to say, AWESOME photos qoatq!!

As far as Adam's outfit goes, I thought it was great. It was typical not-over-the-top Adam-wear: tailored, a bit glittery, tshirt & jeans. Not formal, but he looked great. For me, what was so nice was that he could MOVE (and boy can he ever move) and that he took off the f-ing jacket! Sometimes I think he is so into the outfit, he won't strip down when he's hot. I really liked that he did that--one of my fave outfits is still what he wore for the AOL Sessions because you could see his torso and how he moves.

The sound system at the theater was really lousy. It was definitely better where I was than on the floor, so buyer beware for the videos. I haven't wanted to watch because I suspect the sound is going to sound pretty crappy. There was a lot of extra echo/reverb to his voice. My sister said that on the floor the guitars often overpowered his vocal. Adam was motioning and requesting adjustments a lot, but I think he gave up and just went with it after a while. I am hopeful that the theater will have their act together more tonight.

In spite of that, it was really rocking, awesome show!! My sister is still grinning (I am of course, but that was to be expected :-)). She just "came out of the closet" to Facebook about her Adam fandom! She was blown away by his sexiness and physicality on stage.

She's an astrologer and has been talking about him a lot this morning in terms of what's coming up for him in his chart. I think this is going to continue to be quite the momentous year...and that he is totally prepared to enjoy the ride.

REVIEW

ADAM LAMBERT

Thursday night at Red Robinson Show Theatre (Boulevard Casino in Coquitlam)

Also performing Friday night at River Rock Show Theatre in Richmond

~More photos here: http://www.vancouversun.com/entertainme ... story.html

Guy-liner enthusiast Adam Lambert is a man of contradictions: He's openly gay but attracts a mostly female crowd. He was runner-up on American Idol, yet made the cover of Rolling Stone. He was blacklisted by the television network ABC after simulating oral sex with a male dancer during his performance on the American Music Awards, yet he’s playing at a casino in Coquitlam (and one in Richmond tomorrow night).

There’s nothing wrong with the casino circuit. In fact, it’s reportedly quite lucrative. It’s just that Lambert’s debut album, For Your Entertainment, debuted at number 3 on the Billboard charts. Five months ago. Considering that the Red Robinson Show Theatre’s upcoming concert slate includes veteran acts Air Supply, Don Rickles, and French-Canadian master impressionist Andre-Philippe Gagnon, well, there’s arguably a wee bit of incongruity in the house.

Then again, maybe not. These two suburban shows are actually tuners for his first solo headlining tour launching this summer.

Not that anyone in the crowd cared. (Interestingly, tonight's sold-out show was added due to demand - Friday's show sold out in 10 minutes.)

Chants of "Adam, Adam, Adam…" filled the theatre well before the glam-rocker took the stage and, when he did, high-pitched squeals surely had Coquitlam's canine population placing protective paws to ears.

Lambert, backed by a four-piece band, kicked things off with the title track from his debut, but quickly halted the song because they were "missing something."

"I'm sorry about that people," he said after he successfully got through the second attempt.

Nobody held it against him.

There's no denying Lambert's talents. His excellent acoustic cover of Tears for Fears’ Mad World proves that he’s best on ballads, sometimes even showing shades of George Michael (although some of his songs could really use a couple of backup singers to harmonize with).

Lambert tends to get a bit showy and theatrical on heavier fare like Music Again, occasionally even venturing into the realm of corny party anthems (think Kylie Minogue live from Ibiza with half as many green lasers). Although, as the crowd’s enthusiastic reception proved, there’s certainly a healthy appetite for that.

He struck the best balance between his dynamic voice and song on upbeat tracks like Sleepwalker and, particularly, Fever, his final song of the set written by Lady Gaga and Rob Fusari.

His major problem is that he's just trying to do too much. His vocal range is impressive, but he still needs find what works best. And that’s okay. After all, he’s just starting out. Remember, it wasn’t that long ago that the most famous Lambert in the world was still that guy from the original Highlander movies.

Not anymore. Adam Lambert truly could be a rock star in the making.

Then again, he might end up as the lead in the next Andrew Lloyd Weber musical.

Honestly, it's too soon to say. Though certainly not for the countless female fans screaming for him Thursday night.

To them, he's already an American idol.
