Just come here to say Adam did the best CLTCL and WWTLF Smiling i keep rewinding to these 2 songs Smiling. Dust and WWRY was really rockin too. The whole set was very very good Smiling

Just spoke to my brother and sister-in-law....fans from Idol, but then not a fan of the new music. I sent them a link to the full HD gig....both of them called me and said "This is ADAM!" This what he should be singing. They kept gushing over his voice again.....and his stage presence. Said everything he did was perfect! I so hope album #3 has a rock edge!!!

I'm not sure how many of these pics have already been posted but this album is well worth a second look anyway. Totally AWESOME pics.

‏@_Lilzy: Queen + Adam Lambert pics were updated here: http://lilzy.smugmug.com/Music/Adam-Lambert-Queen-iHeartRadio/32030206_v... … -start from the back of the album 4 new pics Smiling Enjoy Smiling

LOL at this one. Glamhopping!!! Smiling http://tinyurl.com/mm6fknc

@ALfann. Thanks for the video! Yes, I would say we were both in awe when you look at our faces, lol. It was so incredible.

@Adamazing-Eyes. I wonder the same thing. He really has it all, doesn't he?

Sometimes I wonder how it is that one person was created with so many incredible blessings. He has gorgeous looks, a voice that is other-worldly, and inside is a beauty and humility and wit and intelligence that is just astonishing. That last picture is one of the best I've ever seen - and that's saying a lot because I could probably fill a terabyte or two with gorgeous pictures of Adam.

Hi, ALfann Smiling
Thank you Smiling tried to get performance pix of all the acts.
had so much fun at both shows Smiling

Terrance is such a nice guy. He was SO proud of Adam!
Tommy was very happy as well and had many other musician pals that were playing with other bands on the lineup but made it clear that his main reason for attending was to watch Adam with QUEEN.

I was so surprised when Adam posted one of my photos and with that caption...wow.
Is it no wonder we all love him like we do? Such a sweetheart.

Hahah about those AMAZING shoes being a pain. He did not show it at all! He was moving like they were as comfy as UGGs. Smiling

LOL at this comment posted to an article that focused on FUN performing with Queen rather than Adam:

"Your headline is misleading. I clicked on the video to watch FUN perform with Queen and had to sit through 11 minutes of flawless singing by some astoundingly handsome chap before I heard the mediocre pop vocals of Nate Reuss that I tuned in for.

AWESOME review by Digital Journal: http://tinyurl.com/mbanbwb

"Lambert showcased his superb range and powerful pipes on "Who Wants to Live Forever," '

"He put on a flawless concert and it was a standout set from this year's music festival."

"Lambert proved yet again that he is one of the most underrated male vocalists in contemporary music."

@HeatherDawn Thanks for the great pics. What a fabulous line-up of performers! I see that you got a pic with Terrence and Tommy. You looked great and I'm glad that you had a wonderful time.

@Dr Judy & Roxanne Thank you for your kind remarks. I enjoy doing what I can to support Adam and AO.

@ALFann, those photos you posted on Sunday September 22, at 23:08 are some of the most incredible I have ever seen, and I have been around for a looong time, they are beyond gorgeous! Hope you don't get tired of hearing how grateful we are for all that you do. Smiling

@foxeylady I think that's a very normal experience given the circumstances. We definitely had a surreal feeling. I am still at the office, but every break I took I watched again! It's just that great that you want to put it on repeat. Each time I view it, I pick up a little something more, and I was actually standing at the end of the runway looking right up at him!

If you look at the video @sizzling put up here, you will see both of us standing there and the look on the face of my significant other. He is totally mesmerized! Of course, so was I. When it was over, a young woman who had been standing near me, came up to me and commented that it looked like I was really enjoying myself. I confirmed. She said that she had no idea Adam could do what he did. She was very surprised and impressed. I heard many more comments along those same lines-words that warmed my heart.

@sizzling Thanks for the video. We actually saw ourselves briefly on the iHeart video also. I don't think I have fully processed as @foxeylady also said. It is such an interesting phenomenon. The effect he has is amazing. I just might have to study this further - another concert, lol?

@Adamazing-Eyes I agree with everything you said. After the taste, we want the full course! I noticed comments from many that they would be willing to pay what they needed to for a full concert. I can only imagine that they will be getting more than a few requests to do this.

@ALfann Thanks as always for posting the great info and pics. It's greatly appreciated.

‏I love how Brian and Roger take advantage of every media opportunity to praise and promote Adam. Smiling

@YahooMusic: How Queen Hooked Up with Fun. at iHeartRadio http://yhoo.it/1f5laa2

The opportuity to perform with Queen was obviously a dream come true for "fun". The more Adam the better in my book but I'm really glad that "fun" got to live their dream.

All the Clear Channel stations appear to be posting this article on their websites. Nice!!!

Here's another Youtube link from a different angle. I see @Dr. Judy and hubby all the way up front during "Crazy Little Things Called Love". Wow, how can you possibly digest being this close??

If anyone's up for doing so, it may be better to post a new thread just for reviews, tweets, etc. in the aftermath of the concert so members don't have to comb through all of the various replies to find them. Unless, of course, neelie is up to editing them into her OP.
Just a friendly suggestion. Smiling

@sizzling Thanks for posting that amazing report by @Artistsupporter. It literally brought tears to my eyes. She truly captured the spirit of absolute love and support Adam's fans feel for him and the joy and hope it brings to us when others get to experience the Adam we know and love. As @Artistsupporter said, Adam is a good person and an incredible artist. He sooo deserved this opportunity to shine ... and shine he certainly did.

I will be forever grateful to legendary artists Brian, Roger and Nile who obviously love Adam very much as a person and provide such amazing support for his career.

Yay so happy for all of you that got to witness this epicness for real! I watched from the livestream and I was just blown away AGAIN by Adam with Queen. It was better than I was hoping for and my expectations were pretty high knowing what they had already done together. It was perfect in every way. Adam sounded so fabulous. His lower register on Crazy Little Thing Called Love was just the sexiest thing ever. I loved it. And then WWTLF! Wowwww...after that song I was just tears. He slayed and then walked away. I think people were physically stunned. Brian and Roger are just the absolute Rock Gods. I weep when Brian plays. Its like there is another singer on stage. Adam seemed to have so much fun with FUN. on FBG. Real joy on his face. I was so happy for him. And he looked out of this world HOTTT! Just perfect for the radio show with so many people being reintroduced to him or hearing him for the first time. He played it perfectly. And the reviews speak for themselves. I just could not be more proud of him. I find myself saying that a lot....lol. Great job Queen and Adam!

ETA: Just want to one more time thank ALFann and everyone else who keep all things up to date here with media etc...Thank you!

I'm still in the process of taking all this in and have lots more great stuff yet to see here, but I love the article link @sizzling posted about "When Great Things Happen to Good People" I'm so glad there are people out there that can articulate Adam's magnificence so well! And very glad to hear the first hand account of the audience reaction; it was what I was hoping for and anticipating!

@adam_pictures: 135 HQ pictures of Adam Lambert from iHeartRadio Music Festival (September 20) - http://bit.ly/19qLmUb

Playlist of vids made by a fan with awesome up-close vantage point. Focused on Adam with great sound:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QmwR9V9IT5o&list=PLJSEn5hS1rj55ttt6Fh8k9w...

EDIT: That playlist wasn't completed. Here is one vid of the full set from the same fan:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EFeDHKyGMMw&feature=c4-overview&list=UUUV...

A -E -- fro your keyboard to Brian and Roger's ears. I think that is perfect. 4 to 6 concerts in the US and Canada. Pleeeeeeeeaaase let that happen!

BTW, you are absolutely right. There was not one single note that wasn't perfectly pitched. Add to that Adam's incredible showmanship, stage presence and general gorgeousness, it truly was a perfect performance all around. Bri and Roger seemed totally on it as well. How I wish I had been there.

@drummer - LMD will be Avicii's #3 single, Hey Brother will be #4.

Now back to the subject at hand - there do not exist adequate superlatives to describe what it was like Friday night, to be there. WWTLF gave me chills like nothing else ever has. When the whole set was over I cheered like crazy and said "you did it Adam every note was perfect!!" He was flawless, I can't imagine a thing he could do better, not one single thing. From looking amazing, sounding other-worldly, performing with joy and generosity and a talent beyond compare. The only fault is now needing to see a full on Queenbert concert. How about Madison Square Garden for the east coast and back to MGM Grand Arena for the West Coast (loved the venue). And then a couple of spots in the middle of the country.

After a few delays, I finally got home so I could watch the videos! Couldn't watch anything on my iPad on the crappy hotel wifi.

I suppose that sounds strange, since I was actually there, but it's not really. I came away from the show with the same "pinch me" feeling that I had after the Idols tour in 2009 (my very first time with Adam Smiling ) and my first GNT. I had a feeling of unreality, that it didn't really happen, that it must have all been a dream. I know many of you have had the same experience.

Anyway, I'm just now beginning to process it all, through watching the vids and remembering. Just WOW--that's all I can say right now.
