This past Saturday marked my second time seeing Adam Lambert live, and I have to say, it was even better than the first time. This was surprising to me because I liked Adam’s first two albums more than his most recent one. Yet all three albums were great when performed live.
Adam really upped everything this tour. The video screens and lights amplified the show, but never distracted from the most important thing which is Adam himself. He is an amazing vocalist, a great dancer, and an all around great entertainer. The highlights of the show for me were opening song “Evil in the Night”, “Mad World”-one of my two favorite idol moments ever, and “Trespassing” mixed in with Queen’s “Another One Bites The Dust”.
Adam has learned a lot from his shows as lead singer of Queen. He talked in an interview about stringing songs together and it showed. The set list was extremely dense-23 songs in 90 minutes. This was achieved with the use of a few mashups, but no song was shortened too much to the point of being a letdown.
If I had one complaint, it would be that Adam didn’t talk very much, and I like it when artists banter with the crowd. But something had to give to get such a long set list to work, so I wouldn’t complain too much.
i would give this show a 10/10. Go see it if you still can. Or if you can’t, check out the videos below for some of the highlights.
