Adam Lambert books Charlotte concert

"American Idol’s" Season 8 runner-up Adam Lambert will bring "The Glam Nation Tour" to The Fillmore Charlotte at uptown's N.C. Music Factory on Friday, July 2.


A Live Nation press release promises that his show will be "an audio and visual spectacular, both theatrical and atmospheric," with Lambert adding: "I hope the audience will be able to escape for a few hours and fall into a world full of glam, drama and excitement. And I would love everyone to come away with a new appreciation for the music on my album."

Lambert's debut album, "For Your Entertainment," has sold more than 600,000 copies since making bowing at No. 3 on the Billboard Top 200 chart in November. He is the first openly gay mainstream pop singer to release a CD on a major label in U.S.

Australian pop-rocker Orianthi and Allison Iraheta (who finished fourth during the same season of "Idol") will open the show.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday, May 8, at
LiveNation.com, the Fillmore/Uptown Box office, Ticketmaster, or by calling 800-745-3000.

This should be pretty good. Not really looking forward to going down to the Fillmore though. Too many drunk hoochie momma whores and teenie boppers. Was hoping that damn place wouldn't turn into another trashy Epicenter. Maybe Adam's presence will bring in a diverse crowd over there and run out all the trash - at least for one night!

His music is horrible.

Figures that it wouldn't take long at all for the gay-bashing teabaggers to show up here slinging their nastiness. What a wonderful place Charlotte is with all the red neck gay bashers and republican trash. Very nice, as always.

Few things:
1. Of course there will be teeny boppers. That's who this guy panders to. He is famous because of American Idol after all.
2. People not getting this? This is paint by the numbers, generic pop. What's to get?
3. I really wonder who the "tea bagger" is

The same person keeps posting the same gay bashing over and over here. Sad, but typical of this damned town.

OBSERVER: PLEASE REMOVE ALL GAY-BASHING and ABUSIVE POSTS

Teabaggers are the sorry trashy Ballantine soccer moms who should rot in hell for what they've done to lie and create panic about nothing. Yes, they are anti-gay as well.

You are a damned liar about your facts. Adam Lambert does NOT cater to teenie boppers you fool. His music is of the pop genre, but he is more of a rock oriented singer, regardless of how he became known. Maybe you should get back down to ballantine and rot.

To the earlier post: The epicenter is scared as hell of the Fillmore. Unfortunately, the Fillmore seems to want to be more like them with their drunken women falling off balconies and throwing up in garbage cans. Classy!!!!!

Unbelievable. Is Bill James and Flip Bennam posting on here again? Or maybe it's SATAN....

Just because you think Adam Lambert is a rock singer doesn't mean he is. You probably think that Chris Daughtry plays hard rock. Sorry, but there is nothing original or unique about Adam Lambert's music. Sure, he has a great voice, but wearing make-up and platform boots doesn't make you edgy. Please report back about who all attends this show. It's going to mostly be kids and middle-aged women. Also, I don't live in Ballantyne. I'm not new money. I would put a pretty large wager that Ballantyne will be well represented at this concert though! So go have fun, believe you are watching art. By the way, does he write his own lyrics himself? Oh, maybe not, so it's not really his music...

I'm a "teabagger" and I LOVE Adam Lambert and am NOT homophobic. Scary that those on the left keep calling "racism" of the teaparty movement when it is about following the Constitution and has nothing to do with race. Saying we oppose Obama because he is black is like saying we oppose Marx because he is Russian.

Anonymous said...

Bill, they have nothing else but the race card. I served on council in a surrounding city and consider myself a Reagan Conservative that leans more towards Liberterian views. I will be taking my 14 year old. We have brought her up to be open minded and tolerate. She likes his music and disagress with his lifestyle. What more can be said.

Bill said...

It's amusing to me that a commenter would be offended that Republicans might not like gays, but then in the same sentence call all Republicans "trash". So in the same sentence they condemn bigotry, they make a completely bigoted statement. Welcome to the liberal mind. It's a strange place.

Republicans are trash and teabaggers have nothing to do with supporting the Constitution. It's racisma and violence in disguise, all based on propaganda and FoxNews garbage. Sad and pitiful. Don't worry though, your efforts are in vain.

Adam sucks! Really sucks if you know what I mean!!

The Westboro Church sounds like they just appointed Satan as their leader down there! Sounds like a really intolerant, hateful mess to me. May God have mercy on your sorry lying souls. You will burn on the lake of fire for eternity for your hatred.

Wow! I'm from Alabama and I was thrilled to finally see a Southern date on Adam's tour...until reading the comments. God I f*cking hate the South!! I'm already planning to go to CT to see Adam but I will be trying to get tix to this show as well and if I do I will be there with an army of loyal Glamberts who will defend Adam's honor to the bitter end. Hide and watch!! Keep your filthy, disgusting mouths off of Adam. He's an extremely talented human being and a beautiful, kind, sweet person who is greatly loved!! SO BACK OFF BITCHES!! ps: His sexual orientation is really none of your damn business!!!

That is the stupidest thing anyone has ever posted anywhere in all the history of posting.

Anonymous said...

Then why did he ever mention he was gay? I have not seen Toby Keith come ount to announce he is straight.

I am from CT and plenty of rednecks and right ring christians up there as well.

1o:47 poster...Of course you are correct !! The only good groups are NAACP, UNCF, Rainbow, Moveon, Black Political Caucus, Nation of Islam because all of these are groups with merit and foundation. Ooops I forgot Black Liberation Theology.

Some people have to work at being stupid, you obviously were born with it.

Adam Lambert, Orianthi, and Allison will put on a great show. Adam Lambert is a technically gifted singer. He has a great band that can rock out. So, it isn't only the pop you will hear. Adam is also very much about Rock. Don't gay bash and don't republican bash - just take a minute and enjoy the language of the world - MUSIC.

Who the ______ is Tobie Keith? The leader down at Westboro with all the teabaggers?

Who is Adam Lambert

Anonymous said...

I am gay and while I admire his successs. I don't really like Adam's music. Does that mean I hate myself?

Anyway, it's a concert not a gay rights rally. I can respect people who dissaprove of homosexuality and are still going to the show because they like his music.

That's being honest and civil. And not calling the other side names.

What a no talented flamer!!!

Marx was German.

Wow, I had no idea Toby Keith was gay.

Adam rocks. If you dont agree, dont listen. If he's paint by numbers pop, he sure uses a hell of a lot of numbers.

Toby Keith IS NOT GAY. It sounds like a lot of guys on here wish he was. Toby has been happily married for 25 years and has 3 children.
