Not only has Adam Lambert’s vocal skills been recognized lately, but also his overall concert performance has received praise. Adam’s Glam Nation tour has just earned two more honors – one in Dallas and one in New York.
First, Adam’s September Glam Nation performance at the Palladium Ballroom in Dallas has earned him the #10 spot in the “Top 10 Shows of 2010” by Dallas Morning Post -Year in Review: Music. According to writer Mario Tarradell:
“Lambert commanded the stage with his marvelous vocals and an intoxicating blend of glam-rock and pop-dance.”
Secondly, Adam’s Glam Nation concert ranked #1 for the “Top 10 Capital Region Concerts of 2010” by timesunion.com. This countdown is determined by the number of comments a popular concert review generates from readers. After Adam performed at the Palace Theater in Albany, New York last August, a review written by Steve Barnes generated 165 reader comments. This shows that Adam’s fans are not only passionate about reading reviews of his concerts, but also commenting on them. Billy Joel and Elton John ranked #2, with their concert review only generating 79 comments.
As previously reported, the Glam Nation tour performance was also just acknowledged by All Headline News. Adam took the #7 spot in their “Top 10 Live Acts of 2010.”
Another award for Adam’s theatrical Glam Nation concert performance could be coming up in the future. Adam has been nominated for Australian POPrepublic.tv’s “IT LIST Award” for “Concert Tour of 2010.” Fans can vote for him for this honor at POPrepublic.tv.
Unlike other past American Idol contestants, who merely stand on the stage and sing, Adam goes “all out” with his performances. For his Glam Nation tour, Adam included a slideshow, lasers, costumer changes and dancers to make his concert into not just a vocal performance, but a complete theatrical experience.
