Adam Lambert brings his sold-out Glam Nation Tour to his hometown tonight. Headlining a solo tour behind his first album, (For Your Entertainment), Lambert has become one of the most successful post American Idol contestants.
Glambert, a 28-year-old pop sensation, has crooned and rocked his way into fans' hearts with his hits, including the dance number "Voo-doo" and "Whataya Want From Me." Copley Symphony Hall is the ideal place for Glambert to perform "If I Had You," aiding his pitch-perfect screaming.
Yes, we love Glambert's one-of-a-kind voice, but it's the glitz and glamour combination of makeup, hair and fashion styles that is unique. The anticipation of what color feathers, glitter and nail polish will certainly be on the minds of his fans. Glambert's shtick works for him onstage; it's sometimes risky, but he's all about being edgy. An '80s pop icon, Boy George, received similar criticisms about being flamboyant yet still achieved phenomenal success.
For many San Diegans, Glambert is our American Idol. Although the concert is sold out, diehard fans may still find tickets on CraigsList or other ticket outlets for a small fortune.
