He dedicated the show to a woman who was from Nashville who was a huge fan of his and recently died.
I think she and her family have some sort of tie to Elvis, too.

OT, but while we are waiting; the press finally says what we have been saying all along:
American Idol summer tour dates canceled as Adam Lambert tour sells out
July 7, 9:22 PMCelebrity Obsession ExaminerKelvin Lynch
Previous
As last year's phenom Adam Lambert's 'Glam Nation' concert sells out nationwide, this year's American Idol summer tour is canceling eight tour dates and rearranging others, according to Entertainment Weekly.

EW wonders, Is it the economy? Lack of interest in season nine′s finalists? Lack of interest in Idol in general? Public protest against the insane loss of Crystal Bowersox to Lee DeWyze?

Whatever the reason, this summer's tour pales in comparison to last summer's record-breaking run when Adam was, let's face it, the real star of the show. Recall summer 2009, when Glamberts lined up in droves for tickets to the show and autographs from the Glittered One, even though he wasn't that year's winner (that "honor" went to Kris Allen).

Let's face it - Idol is over. With Simon Cowell gone, what does next season hold? Ellen DeGeneres did a decent job of being straightforward but nice as a judge last season, while Kara and Randy stuck to their same old boring, irritating platitudes.

Ellen can't hold the show on her own, and there is definitely no chemistry between her and Ryan Seacrest, as there was with Ryan and Simon.

Plus, the contestants this season, with the exception of Bowersox, were just plain boring. Adam Lambert simply set the bar too high in terms of showmanship, star quality, and phenomenal vocal talent.

To be fair, big-name artists are suffering in the tour department this summer too. Christina Aguilera, Jonas Brothers, and John Mayer, just to mention a few, have all either scaled back their tour dates or canceled them altogether.

But Adam rocks on, selling out every venue as he criss-crosses the country. His US tour ends in September before heading overseas.


Whatever the reason for the AI summer tour woes, it's promoter, LiveNation, isn't commenting.
What do you think? Why is Adam Lambert's concert doing so well this summer while the Idols tour flounders?

I just want to pop in to say that the man was absolutely inspired tonight! He will never top this performance...no matter where he plays.

So proud of him...the crowd was absolutely nuts for him...possibly the best reception he has had so far on this tour. And he REVELED in the adoration. Watch the looooooooong pause in Soaked...listen to the crowd and watch his face...the sheer joy is just unmistakable.

There just are not words for tonight's show...watch and listen to the vids and you will understand. He reached for and hit notes we have never heard before...and put them in places he's never tried before. The best Fever of the tour...and surely the best Sleepwalker (thanks, Aimee Mayo)...and he gave this crowd the WLL he thought we deserved...and it was the best he has ever done....EVER!

The ghosts of legends past may inhabit the Ryman Theatre, but tonight they saw the future.

Brian Mansfield's review is up

http://content.usatoday.com/communities/id...an-auditorium/1


Adam Lambert brings his Glam Nation Tour to Nashville's Ryman Auditorium
CommentsE-mailPrintShare
By Brian Mansfield, USA TODAY
Updated 2010-07-08 7:56 AM

In a summer that has seen concerts and entire tours fall by the wayside, Adam Lambert has put together something impressive: A sold-out tour of large clubs and small theaters playing to a thoroughly devoted audience that comes not for the big single but to bask in the presence of the artist. Most concerts these days feel like a luxury; to his fans, an Adam Lambert concert feels like a necessity.

Wednesday night, Adam brought the Glam Nation Tour to Nashville's Ryman Auditorium, a former church tabernacle and the longtime (and, with the recent flood damage done to the Grand Ole Opry House, the current) home of the Grand Ole Opry (you remember, the place Adam told Randy Travis he had "no plans" to play). Fellow American Idol alumnus Allison Iraheta and Australian guitar whiz Orianthi opened. The sold-out crowd of nearly 2,400 included Sleepwalker co-writer Aimee Mayo, former Idols Kellie Pickler and Chris Sligh, and Big Machine Records head Scott Borchetta.

Adam began with the stage bathed in purple light, singing Voodoo against a cloudy, full-moon backdrop. In his top hat and tattered long coat, he resembled Baron Samedi, the hard-partying undertaker character of voodoo lore, a loa who escorts souls on their journey into the netherworld. And maybe, with second song Down the Rabbit Hole -- during which lasers created patterns on the stained-glass windows at the back of the Ryman balcony -- there was just a touch of the Mad Hatter, as well.

When the band began Ring of Fire, the Ryman crowd went absolutely ballistic. Easily one of the night's most anticipated performances, Ring of Fire has a lot of history in this venue.

Johnny Cash met June Carter, his future wife, backstage at the Ryman during a Grand Ole Opry show back in the '50s. Carter later wrote the song about her feelings for Cash, then Cash took it, turned it back on her, and made it into a huge hit. During the '60s, Cash shot his television show for ABC on the Ryman stage, and the venue hosted the memorial service for the song's co-writer, Merle Kilgore, in 2005. (For what it's worth, I think Cash -- the kind of guy who got a kick out of sitting on his patio with a crow call just to fool crows into thinking he was one of them -- would've loved Adam's take on Ring of Fire and the way it gets under some people's skin.)

Not until Fever did Adam do a song that appears on the basic version of the For Your Entertainment album. It's a huge risk for a performer to start a set with so many non-album tracks -- the only other act I can remember seeing pull a stunt like that was Bruce Springsteen, and he'd been playing to his faithful for nearly 40 years at that point -- but Adam's fans, many of whom may have the entire set memorized from watching YouTube videos of his previous concert stops, stayed with him like they were hits they'd heard all their lives.

Adam flirted with all the dancers -- and some amazingly high notes, as well -- during Fever. Then the dancers got a tribal/industrial intro to Sleepwalker, while Adam changed into a full-length black coat.

After Sleepwalker, Adam said, "It is such an honor to be performing here at the Ryman," as he sat down on a stool for the acoustic portion of the set.

Adam has constructed his concert like a three-act piece of musical theater. The first act is filled with the "mystery ... intrigue ... sex" of songs like Voodoo, Down the Rabbit Hole and Fever. The second act, with its acoustic songs, has all the tension: the questioning of Whataya Want From Me, the crushing heartbreak of Soaked and the emotional turnaround of Aftermath, a song Adam said was about "looking inside yourself for the answers." The third act begins when Adam returns in sparkly, sleeveless black, and it's all celebration from Sure Fire Winners through Strut, Music Again and If I Had You.

That song, which closed the main set with an introduction of the band and the dancers, plus an audience sing-along, "is what this whole show's about," Adam told the crowd, because "you're nothing anything if you're not connected with love."

One of the best things about the live Adam Lambert experience is the way he has completely reinterpreted many of his songs for the tour. Anybody who comes in expecting the arrangements from For Your Entertainment is in for a big surprise.

The songs the band performed acoustically, for instance, were great showcases for that voice, giving it plenty of room to play. Soaked, with its classically romantic melody and solo piano accompaniment for much of the song, took on a structural resemblance to Eric Carmen's dramatic '70s pop ballad All By Myself. Sure Fire Winners, almost a dance anthem on disc, got a thumping rock treatment.

Both of the encore songs -- Mad World and Whole Lotta Love -- sounded completely different than they did when Adam performed them on American Idol. Mad World quickened to around the pace of the Tears for Fears version, while Whole Lotta Love settled into a slinking, acoustic groove with a spacey, stretched-out middle section.

The few weak spots will work themselves out with experience. The transitions during Adam's costume changes could be smoother (though it wasn't like anybody was complaining, and they clearly thought the pay-off was worth the wait), and Adam sometimes relies on the obvious, even going so far at one point as to explain his set list.

And then there's the length of Adam's set, which many reviews have noted. Bluntly put, it's short -- slightly more than an hour, including the encore. But don't think the audience felt short-changed. Here's the thing: the show's not just short, it's quick. The entire concert lasted about three hours, but it seemed like half that. Allison's six-song set flew by, and Adam's hour felt like about 15 minutes. Just like Adam's team understands how to create demand for tickets, Adam gets one of the basic show-biz rules:

Always leave 'em wanting more.

Adam Lambert finished second? You couldn't tell it from this crowd, which greets the explosive sounds and strobing lights with shrieks. Adam kicks off his set with Led Zeppelin's Whole Lotta Love, and the stage fills with smoke. He's wearing a blue-and-black metallic-looking studded jacket that comes down to his knees, along with a sleeveless black T-shirt and black pants. The crowd may have been dancing for Allison and Danny -- for Adam, they're screaming. Suddenly we've gone from the world of AC pop into a real rock show.

Second song is Muse's Starlight, and the six disco balls hanging above the stage turns the Rose Garden into a planetarium. It's Adam's typically impressive song choice -- for the arrangement, imagine Erasure's Andy Bell fronting the Sisters of Mercy -- and he sings it flawlessly, beautifully, slipping in and out of falsetto. (I wonder if this begins to approach what his album will sound like -- you wouldn't hear me complaining if it did.) Matt's version of Hard to Handle was pretty cool, but this is the first of the new numbers I'd lay down cash money to hear again.

Low-level fog creeps in, as Adam takes a seat on a stool to sing the Tears for Fears/Gary Jules song Mad World. The crowd is still on its feet, and they've brought out their cameras -- you could practically read in here, the flashes are so steady. Some people are singing along; most of them just look entranced.

The guitarist cranks out the opening chords to Slow Ride start, and the audience knows what's coming -- or, rather, who. Allison Iraheta walks on stage, and the place goes ballistic.

Now, he's doing the David Bowie medley he promised, which starts with Life on Mars (and the big red planet is behind him on the video screen). As he slides into Fame, the crowd shrieks again, but it's not for the song: Adam has shed his jacket, revealing the sleeveless T underneath. He's obviously been working with JaQuel Knight on choreography, too; he's moving lithely across the stage in a way Idol viewers never saw. The third number, Let's Dance, assumes a pulsing, throbbing club rhythm under his command, barely resembling the pseudo-horn-band arrangement of Bowie's original.

He finishes, then descends on the center-stage lift.

A Flaming Adam Lambert Burns Down the Ryman Auditorium (Photos)

Adam Lambert, in all his flaming glory, proved to naysayers that Nashville music fans who jammed the Ryman Auditorium Wednesday night, are not one trick ponies.

The Ryman Auditorium is the Mother Church of country music. Among the memorabilia on display is the outrageous red sequined wardrobe of Porter Wagoner and the somber all black outfit from the original “man in black,” Johnny Cash.

Lambert wowed and dazzled the crowd. He owned the stage and fans from the moment he appeared at the top of a staircase looking a lot like the Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland.

Fans who came to be entertained as much by the over-the-top costuming as they were singing were not to be disappointed as Lambert made a number of costume changes during the show.

Even though there are many bad seats in the Ryman, and precious few good ones, fans were rocking the old church from the beginning.

The 28 year old King of glam rock, commanded the stage and dominated every set with a sparkling performance. The Music City seems to have forgiven Lambert for putting his [url=http://www.nashvillescene.com/nashville/adam-lambert-worianthi-and-allison-iraheta/Event?oid=1632050]original twist on legend Johnny Cash’s Ring of Fire.


he corpse-raped Johnny Cash with a tactless bastardization of “Ring of Fire” on Idol’s “Opry Night” episode. His “update” of the Cash classic sounded like Jeff Buckley drowning in a sea of nine inch nails while the Man in Black spun like a top six feet under, prompting recently departed and ever-unforgiving Idol judge Simon Cowell to speculate that viewers in Nashville were chucking their TVs out their windows after being subjected to such a dreadful musical monstrosity.

Lambert tackled the iconic Johnny Cash smash hit for his second number, holding nothing back, including his signature high pitched vocals.


American Idol may be the only competition where fans actually remember who came in second. The second place finisher in the 2009 season, of course, was Adam Lambert, and he wowed them in concert at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium last night.


His run on American Idol was electrifying – and except for the odd twist of having not come in first – Lambert was in control of the entire season as he came out – in more ways than one – of his shell and wowed the judges with every single performance down the stretch.


Chris Allen, the eventual winner of American Idol in 2009 said:
Adam deserved this…was the most consistent person all year. He was seriously one of the most gifted performers that I’ve ever met.
Lambert stirred controversy when a photo was released of him kissing another man late in the American Idol season. Lambert shrugged it off, unconcerned about how it would play in Nashville.
When asked if he thought he could ever play in Nashville [before tour was announced] he told Out & About:

You know, there’s always a chance. I think Nashville has now become a huge music scene, and I wouldn’t be surprised if I ended up there for some project or another.

The support that I’ve seen out here has meant a lot to me, and it’s been surprising, because I didn’t realize that was the case. I kind of figured, ‘Oh, I’m maybe more supported in the metropolitan, liberal areas.’

Lambert is still pushing the envelope with his music and with his style.

He told Rolling Stone magazine,

Female performers have been doing this for years—pushing the envelope about sexuality—and the minute a man does it, everybody freaks out. We’re in 2009—it’s time to take risks, be a little more brave, time to open people’s eyes and if it offends them, then maybe I’m not for them. My goal was not to piss people off, it was to promote freedom of expression and artistic freedom.”

Lambert and his promoters added Nashville to his summer concert tour because of high demand and fast sell outs. Atlanta, Indianapolis, Tempe, Arizona, and Providence, Rhode Island, are some more of the new cities added.

Lambert said…
Especially with this tour, I’ve honed in on the spiritual quality of the performance. There’s something that happens between you and your audience when you’re really connected. My fans have been so dedicated and passionate about what I do. This show was really built for the fans.”

Rock guitarist Orianthi and fellow American Idol singer Allison Iraheta opened for Lambert.

Another American Idol alum, Kelli Pickler, was in the audience.

Adam Lambert Rocks the Ryman

Image

He’s been touring in support of his new album For Your Entertainment, and last night (July 7) Adam Lambert and his rock & roll show hit Nashville, Tennessee.

The “American Idol” alum looked to be in fine form as he took the stage at the historic Ryman auditorium for a high-energy set.

In related news, Lambert’s two singles “If I Had You” and “Whataya Want From Me” are doing well on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart.

Adam’s music is a big hit on both sides of the USA/Canada border, and with his successful tour sales it looks like he’ll be more than a flash in the pan.

Adam Lambert Ignites "Ring of Fire" at Ryman
Posted: July 8th, 2010 at 4:31 pm | By: Whitney Self

Adam Lambert, the dazzling American Idol runner-up from Season 8, marched his Glam Nation tour to Nashville's Ryman Auditorium last night (July 7), setting his entire show ablaze with dynamic dancing, spirited singing and extravagant costume changes. He seemed more than pleased to be performing at the famed mother church of country music, emphasizing how honored he was to be there. To balance out his sexual vibe and rigorous routine, Lambert kept a tasteful and inoffensive rapport with the crowd. He filled his smoldering set with dance-heavy, buoyant beats on "Fever," "If I Had You" and his appropriately titled single, "For Your Entertainment." My mother, her friend and I had waited months to see Adam "Glambert," as we like to refer to him, and we teased our hair, wore too much eyeliner and I finally found a good reason to wear those 4-inch pumps I was saving for a special occasion. I think Kellie Pickler did, too, because I spotted her sitting in the crowd with tousled hair and a tight little black dress. My highlight of the evening came as he paid homage to the Man in Black and put his own spin on the country classic, "Ring of Fire." To be honest, I think even Johnny Cash would've thought Lambert walked the line -- or at least sashayed it -- quite nicely.
