@adamlambert has been putting in the travel time! He just played Des Moines, IA on July 28, 2012 and none other than our super-dedicated friend, Suz526 was there to catch it! From Adam’s stage comments to the crowds, it doesn’t sound like it was a fully Glambertized crowd. This concert was at a water park, so perhaps they were a little waterlogged?!

Who was there? Can you please fill us in? Ellen, I know you were there! Please give us the details!! Janet, were you there too?

Love ya! ~ Carol ~

About Carol

I started writing on this site back in May 2009, not knowing what I was in for or where it would take me. I had no idea of the joy and personal satisfaction I'd find here. I never dreamed that I'd get to meet Adam, but that dream came true! The bonus of becoming such great friends with Lila and the other fans is what keeps me going. Music gets me though every day. In addition to Adam, I love Muse, Linkin Park, 80s and finding newer bands and supporting them by attending everything that's within 350 miles. With Adam, the boundaries are farther! Thanks for joining us on this ride! :)

  1. I was there! Raining off & on , the skies cleared up for Adam. Main acts were Matt Kearney, Neon Trees, Adam & Train. Glamberts were well represented from 8 states that I know of. Some drove 13 hours to get there, i drove 6 from Chicago. Adam was on fire like he has been at all of his unofficial tour shows. Now he’s home resting in LA. Because of the weather, the stage structure was reinforced, which caused assignned seating to get all mixed up. For a while it was a free for all . All worked out fine in the end. Adam was the only one doing an encore ( Cuckoo of course) he signed at the fence afterwards. I didn’t stay for Train, but heard someone got married on stage ! The sound was pretty good & Adam wowed everyone for sure!

      Aw, thanks sweetie! Could you tell if there were soon-to-be new fans in the audience? How can anyone (of right creative mind!) see him and not love his performance? We obviously never get tired of it!!
      Love ya!

  3. On Thursday July 26th Adam was in San Antonio at Six Flags. Everyone loved him and it appeared he loved us. He was beautiful and sooooo sweet. You could feel the love. He’s the best.

    • @gospel, I’m sick sick sick that I missed Adam in SA. There were no advertisements. Everyone at work knows I love Adam Lambert, and no one said a thing.

      Did he say he was coming back for his official Trespassing tour?

      Thanks.

  5. Thanks so much for sharing your videos! I left San Francisco Saturday morning on my way home to Alabama to attend Adam’s DesMoine show but my flight got cancelled and no other flights were open to Iowa.. I cried and cried. Had been looking forward to this show for a long time. Your videos helped ease the pain …

    • Easty, I know how you feel. I had planned a trip to London to see Adam perform with Queen at the Sonisphere festival. I was so upset when it was cancelled and I didn’t get to see him perform because my flight home was the day before they had rescheduled the concerts at Hammersmith. I had a wonderful vacation, but I was so disappointed that I didn’t get to see Adam.

    Enjoyed Des Moines show. I drove 6 hours to get there. I noted a lot of Train fans but also new interest in Adam. The best was watching 2 teenage girls excited for Adam’s music and singing every word to NCOE.

    Hi.

    I was at the Des Moines concert too & I thought Adam was fabulous. I loved it more than the Fantabuloso concert I last saw him at in May in Chicago. Chicago was family-friendly-Adam. Des Moines was sexy, look-at-my-hot-ass-in-these-new-jeans-I’ve-worn-for-my-fans Adam. 😉

    The entire crowd around me, in the reserved seating (fiasco) area was jumping, singing, dancing and screaming for Adam. It was euphoria for all of us! So I’m very perplexed as to why people are saying this crowd was weak. It wasn’t.

    Oh, and to clear up the location, it was the Water Works Park (named that because it was close to “Water Works” area). It was NOT a water park – it was like a forest preserve/recreational area.

    And the 5 1/2 hour roadtrip one way was so much fun! I couldn’t have asked for a better weekend with all my favorite Glamberts.

    Hey y’all! Yes, i was there as well. Ellen cracks me up. The seating worked out because we all had front row and were five feet from our beautiful boy! Oh and we added some action during Cuckoo with what is now referred to as “the panty incident”. Our friend Heather brought the panties and I launched them onstage. We were sad when he walked off stage without noticing them. Then he came back for Cuckoo and played with them. It was so funny, hearing him riff about “panties on his microphone”! So much fun, so much love for Adam and each other! It was fantastic. Missed you tho.
    It was a mixed crowd, Glamberts were well represented and there were quite a few Adam converts after his show. It was so awesome to hear Train fans talking about how great Adam was. Yay team!

    Thanks for the videos. Adam just gets better and better. He sounds amazing and has such a genuine smile. I love Adam!

  10. love Adam’s every performance !! He is so sexy and cute!!
    Always love his tight jeans!!!!

  11. I too love Adams voice, and everything he does on stage, just an awesome performer. Loved hearing him sing with Queen, his best performance ever. He seems not as complete at this peformance, maybe because of the size, or maybe it was missing the chemistry with Roger Taylor and Brian May. As much as Adam can hold his own, the presence of strong back up would only compliment his amazing voice. I liked his new album, but didn’t love it. I felt there was stil too much echo, voice over, noise. Not enough of his pure voice. I think he’s heading in the right direction and I’m waiting for album #3.
