I suppose it wouldn't matter if everyone is drunk out of their minds and the entertainment is some crappy, unknown performer or band! I think that a top notch, self-respecting entertainer (like Adam) or musician would be feeling pretty unappreciated if that noise is drowning out their performance.

Adam doesn't like girls screaming when he is meeting them in an airport or going out and doing an informal signing. He has even told people that it hurts his ears! Even his sound guy says he has sensitive hearing. Why would he want that ear piercing noise interfering with his music? If you are American, whistling is sometimes considered an insult after a bad play at a sporting event or after a bad performance of some sort. Therefore his initial reaction may have been negative ::wacko:: until, and because he is a good sport, he went along with it.

Adam should make sure that those whistles are banned if he performs there again!






The whole whistle thing is very much a part of the London rave scene from the 90's. Whistles were always used when the techno music was being played. The handing out of whistles at some London clubs is still done to this day. G A Y still uses that tradition. The club goers know that and I'm sure British acts that perform there know that too. I don't think that the whistle thing is foreign to Adam either. Many gay clubs in America from coast to coast have whistle blowers to enhance the music and party atmosphere. It's fun for the young people.

I'm going to venture a bet here that most people there last night WERE drunk as you mention. Or at least feeling no pain and didn't mind the whistles.

WE here think of Adam as a top notch performer because we are stans. Some of the patrons there last night I'm sure think that Adam is super also. But to not use their whistles? I don't think so. He wasn't performing an aria from La Boheme. It was a party club atmosphere...for young people.

I can't imagine Adam asking the proprietor of G A Y to ban whistles if he ever performs there again. To me, and imo, that would be nuts.

Sometimes, fans of a certain age, and I am one of them, just don't get the younger folks and their methods of having fun. I'm sure the whistles would drive older people crazy. That is just a given. But Adam TRIES to perform and entertain younger fans.

I believe that Adam was more making a joke last night about the whistles. If he was really bothered, he has no problem to voice himself. He has said at least twice on TOH tour to the audience not to "throw shit on stage." He would have said to stop the whistles too imo.

Yeah those Whistles are no big deal. Part in parcell of those clubs. ADam was joking too. Being a bit catty but generally. joking. I think ppl take Adam way too seriously lol. He has a poker face. I don't think it would be wise to tell the club next time, oh dont whistle lol. Its not a big deal. ADam seemed to have fun, seeing a different type of audience front row haha.

I have been to several of Adam's concerts. I was not in the best position at two of those concerts as all I could hear the first time was Tommy's bass and the other was the drums. My enjoyment of those concerts was severely reduced because I could hardly hear Adam's voice. The other concerts were aurel heaven! I also would not enjoy a concert if I heard constant whistles or someone singing loud and flat behind me for an entire concert. I realize that some younger people think it is fun and as we already know, most of those younger audiences don't really give a damn about the quality of the music or if they are interfering with someone else's enjoyment. I would only think it might be appropriate at a concert being hosted by a DJ playing tunes on a turntable that don't involve a live performer! I don't care if it is some kind of tradition. I think it is really disrespectful and obnoxious! I also don't think Adam was expecting it based on his initial reaction. His "What the F..K" reaction was a good way to let people know that it wasn't the most pleasing sound or a good way to show their appreciation of the person trying to perform. Even his facial expression looked like he was in pain from the noise! Maybe a few of those young people need to be educated in how to behave in front of a live performer! I guess when your idea of live performing involves lip syncing or autotuned crap, it doesn't matter how you behave!

Of course, this is my personal opinion which I am entitled to!

While Adam was surprised at the whistling. By no means imo was he angry lol. HE turned around and laughed. I just think he was like WTF that noise? Then like ok then. I don't think he was pissed off or anything. I get preserving quality of performance. And @Hot yo u maybe right. But in reality this was a club rave type environment. A lot of young gay guys, and some women. So it was never going to be as controlled, and theatrical as his toh shows. Which I enjoyed it was more spontanoues. And free, and unhibited. But that's just me.

I hear what you are saying. But first of all, this was not a concert. It was a gay bar club. That is a whole other kettle of fish. The venue was much looser than a concert setting. Young people were there to drink, dance, listen to music and have a good time. Adam seemed very happy to me as well as the audience members. No harm, no foul.

As far as appreciating him, I believe they did. It was evident in the vids that they loved him. Young people just show it differently than a more mature fan would. The whistle blowing was being one with him and his music. The more whistles that were blown, was more of them showing the love for him. Did you really expect everyone to be stone silent and stand there like statues and listen intently to him singing? THAT, imo, would have freaked him out more. He needs the audience to show enthusiasm and that they are into him and his music to perform and give that same energy right back. At G A Y, the whistles did just that.

I don't agree that he was "in pain" from the whistles. He is a pop singer that sings in front of blistering drums, bass, keys and amped up guitars all the time. A small plastic whistle, even blown in unison, would not imo cause him pain. You saying he looked "in pain" is a pretty large leap for me.

I would love to know how you would educate young people to act in front of a live performer. lol Good luck with that.

I also can't blame young people for liking lip syncing and autotune. It is after all what the ~adults at record companies ram down their throats and they don't know any different.

Adam is a big boy. I'm sure he survived his six song set with whistles. He was at QAL rehearsal today, and that was by far louder on his eardrums than G A Y.

And speaking of QAL, only four more days till Lisbon. ::spaz:: ::clapbig:: ::wootdance::
