AdamAdam...Tacoma Concert, From My Sofa...

Can you believe that I spent another night in Rickey.org's cellcast?
That's where I was a few days ago, along with a roomful of Glamberts, a few Matt Giraud lovers, a handful of girls4gokey and several Krisfans.

Great sound...the Blackberry Pearl was actually holding out, although we'd been warned that the battery might die.
All Allison, all Adam, as much of Kris as the battery will allow.

30 minutes later...
There was no sound, and no Adam.
No free concert via cellcast.
The vagaries of the esthers in the internet universe.

So, here are a few vids to tide you over, if you've been waiting for an Adam-fix.
Don't forget to doubleclick on the video, and that will take you to Youtube where you can click on the little window at the top right corner of the video and see this in full screen.

This opener for his set is Whole Lotta Love...hotter than a pepper sprout!

This next video has some great improvements made over the past ones that have come out of the concerts, because there were a few techno-wizards who got together and created the best of the best from a few existing videos.

This is Adam at his sulkiest, poutiest, sexiest best.
..here, for your enjoyment, is Adam's David Bowie Medley!

Meanwhile, the talk in Rickey.org's cellcast went like this...


We were coining new names for the various bromances...
Rickey and his favorite Elmo becomes Elkey
Manoop-manoop...Matt and Anoop
Granny is the new Kradam...Matt Giraud and Danny
Giraud and Gokey...Girokey
The sound sucked on the cellcast, but the crowd in the waiting room were hilarious!

A little infighting in the waiting room...a few vocal posters, some guy posting gross videos.
The concert crowd hits a new high for screams from the crowd for Adam...and Adam and Allison.
Sad sound.
Room full of good people, some love Adam, some love Kris, some love Danny...
I am such a loser, hanging in a chat room on a weekend to hear the bits and pieces of the concert tour.

One more thing...my favorite of the entire set.
I adore Adam's version of Muse's Starlight and I hope it shows up on his new album.
Here it is...

Here are the lyrics...

Far away
This ship is taking me far away
Far away from my memories
Of the people who care if I live or die

The starlight
I will be chasing your starlight
Until the end of my life
I don't know if it's worth it anymore

Hold you in my arms
I just wanted to hold you in my arms

My life
You electrify my life
Let's conspire to re-ignite
All the souls that would die just to feel alive

I'll never let you go
If you promise not to fade away, never fade away

Our hopes and expectations
Black holes & revelations
And our hopes and expectations
Black holes & revelations

Hold you in my arms
I just wanted to hold you in my arms

Far away
This ship is taking me far away
Far away from the memories
Of the people who care if I live or die

I'll never let you go
If you promise not to fade away, never fade away

And our hopes and expectations
Black holes & revelations, yeah
Our hopes and expectations
Black holes & revelations

Hold you in my arms
I just wanted to hold you in my arms
I just wanted to hold

My sister is at the AI concert tonight (7/12) in San Jose, CA.

I won't get a report until morning though.

Envy, envy, envy!
I would love to attend...everyone who has tells me that the concert is gone in a flash. It is so great that it goes by in a split second.
Let me know what she says!
Thanks, Nancy!!!

nancyhol:

My sister loved the concert and said Adam's set was just amazing.

She said she felt sorry for Kris, who had to perform after Adam.

Nancy, thanks for letting me know! I agree...it's a tough spot for him to perform. Simon Cowell said no one should ever have to follow Adam, and I think he was absolutely right. Rather an unfair position to be in, isn't it?

Here's a youtuber for ya!
Adam tonight in LA...listen to the crowd go crazee!
