Remaining seats will be open to the public, who will be escorted by security to the stadium. The school campus is not open to the public, but the public can attend the performance after security escort. Seating will be on a first-come, first-serve basis, said Shuta.

The event is a “special assembly” for students. But “we do have regular school,” said Shuta. “We’re gonna try!”

  1. Please God let someone have a live-streaming video capture program or something, because I know I’m not actually going to be able to watch it as it streams live…hopefully…it will be possible for us to come back to it and watch/download it later. I’m praying stuff will be saved here after I get done with my class! Adam FTMFW!

  2. Glambertfan says:

    Keep us Posted – would love to be there today…ENJOY Adam, you deserve all of it and more!!!

  3. Glambertfan says:

    Do you have links that are available in CANDA? The last few links don’t allow access due to IP location and shuts down my Window connection to your site 🙁

  4. Glambertfan says:

    CANADA … lol

  5. David M. Gibson says:

    I think the city of San Diego should just present Adam with the Key To The City and, while they’re at it, congratulate him as the winner of American Idol. Why not . . . he’s clearly going to win — hands down. And I, of course, could not be happier for him or us.

  6. San Diego should be ashamed of its lack of coverage compared with the other idol contestants. Broken links, no coverage at all, basically. Says a lot for people’s respect for someone they asked to come back to them. Quite frankly, I’ve been on the internet for over an hour and I’ve yet to find a “streaming link” that works.

    Go Adam! The rest of the country supports you anyway!

    • What’s the deal with coverage for Adam. No streaming video anywhere. None of those links have worked today.

      • they all work for hundreds of people here, we can’t find video streaming

        • Kmmy2727 says:

          All the links worked for me! The Fox5 stream was choppy, but I was able to see most of it.

          THANKS SOOO MUCH FOR POSTING ADAM’S ITINERARY!

          LOVE THIS PLACE!

    • Californians are used to very VERY famous people. It’s difficult to organize there huge parades and move the masses the way smaller places like Milwaukee and Sacramento are able to do. while it is a huge honor for S,M to have a native in the top 3, it cannot be as exciting for those used to the World’s biggest entertainers.

    • I agree! Can’t believe the poor coverage by San Diego!!! Very amateur that’s for sure.

      We love you here in Canada and around the world, Adam.

  7. SusanL says:

    I hope you’re having a great day Adam!

    Sending hugs and support from Madison, Wisconsin!! (and no, I’m not going to Milwaukee to see Danny!)

  8. Okay, they finally got their act together and there are now some videos to watch here: http://www.fox5sandiego.com/

    Not live streaming and not of the parade but the studio which we saw on youTube.

  9. ADAM, have lots of fun and enjoy your day in San Diego. 🙂

  10. Congrats Adam we are all behind you and sooo proud!!!

  11. Isn’t Sun Devil stadium in AZ?

  12. admlmbrtrckz says:

  13. Glambertfan says:

    I am wondering how these guys outbid someone else to sponsor Adam’s homecoming? It could and should have been way more exciting … or is Canada the place for Adam to come for a proper Hero’s welcome? 🙂

  14. ADAM, ENJOY YOUR DAY!!!! MANY HAPPY AND WARM WISHES FOR YOU!!! YOU’RE SUCH AN ICONIC TALENT. PERFECT, PERFECT, PERFECT!!!!!!! THANK YOU, GOD!!!!!

  25. Immafun1 says:

    Adam is the REAL DEAL Folks! I am in utter awe of his talent & character! Shine On Sweetie!

  26. I just wish more people had shown up at the events. They should have shot this in L. A. – in his own neighborhood. Either that – or his Hollywood friends should have high-tailed it down to San Diego for the homecoming. Adam was his usual gracious self – but those crowds look sparse.

    Thanks for posting all this, Dreamsound. I especially loved Adam singing our National Anthem. Like Slash said – kid’s got pipes!

  27. labelle says:

    He s such an earthy guy!So natural and just one of the people!What a great atitud and natural charme.Hi s laughing just makes me laugh with him.Fantastic interviews and superb deal with fans,paparazzis and press.Smart,open ,carismatic.Good for you,Adam Lambert!The pinkest wishes from the Lambert-fans in Peru!!!

  32. AdamAddict says:

    I’m so jealous at those people! I wish I can “puff” myself there! To bad I have to buy an expensive plane ticket if I want to go there. I just save my money & buy his CD,instead! That’s count as support as well!

    I love the way he treated his fans. Sooo sweeet!! He’s like “yeah,yeah,you tv guys just wait for another second,I have to sign for this lady first and this lady and this kid and…..”
    I love him even more!

    There are lots more in youtube. I love when the guy teased him about the make up bag,he looked so adorable there. And when this girl took off her cloth and Adam can’t stop laughing…so cute and, and, and when he puts the eyeliner to this weather girl and,and….” Awww,Adam so hot,and cute,and sexy and adorable and..bla bla bla bla”

  39. wholelotta lambert says:

    Thanks for all your hardwork ,dreamsound, this is the best fan site ever.

  40. America, let’s all give our support to Adam! He just truly deserves to win this singing competition! We can’t allow to have another Chris Daughtry disaster! Vote vote vote Americans!

  41. iloveadam says:

    VOTE FOR ADAM!!!!!!

  42. For those not happy with the San Diego Homecoming please know that the homecoming is not arranged by San Diego, it is planned, organized and executed primarily by Idol/Fox and Adam input.

    If people were not at the airport welcome, Fox morning, and Radio as one would have thought it is because of those, only the radio show was promoted. The public was not made aware of the others and only got put on the Fox webiste the afternoon before. The ATT stop and SeaWorld events were not publicised. The Mt Carmel event was the only promoted event and it got 15K people. The Military event was only promoted to the military. Idol/Fox must have had reasons. Maybe they were concerned with too big of crowds? Or wanted it more controlled. Who knows.

  43. IMPORTANT, IMPORTANT, IMPORTANT
    PASS THIS ON TO ALL ADAM FANS

    LET’s GET THE FOCUS BACK ON VOTING.

    There are a couple of posts here on “what songs will Adam sing” thread that speak of
    Danny Gokey bringing up the topic of his deceased wife during his hometown visit to garner votes.

    Also found this well-analysed,disquieting post on the Adam lambert thread on AIdol website.Here goes:
    “”
    “”Adam is “perceived” by the public and casual voters to be the Frontrunner. They don’t think he needs any help or votes to make the Finale. His strong performance during “Rock Week” and the Entertainment Weekly cover is only reinforcing this MYTH!!!!!! This will cost Adam alot of votes from casual voters!!!!!

    The Vote Totals may be very close. Quote from an article in the news this week “While officials at American Idol have refused to share voting totals, sources inside American idol have indicated that recently the vote count has been very close.”

    Polls show Adam in the lead but Kris closing in. Every major American Idol Popularity and Prediction Poll on-line shows Adam #1 but Kris a strong #2 with Kris’s numbers improving daily and Adam’s rather stagnant.

    Kris and Danny had HUGE turnouts at their Homecoming Events. Their fans are energized! Danny made appearances at events reaching a grand total of about 60,000 people in Milwaukee. Kris made appearances at events reaching a grand total of about 60,000 people in multiple cities in Arkansas. Adam made appearances at events reaching a grand total of less than 10,000 people in San Diego. Danny & Kris fans are very excited and energized by this and are ready to vote! They’re seeing a crack in the door!

    Kris and Danny had “scares” last week. Kris was slammed by the judges and Danny had a poor performance that was widely critized by music critics. After Kris was blasted, many of his fans were hysterical and in terrible fear he was leaving Wednesday. The show also had Danny in the last 2 before announcing he was “Safe”. Even though it was a random announcement with no Bottom 2…it was “perceived” by his fans that he might be in the Bottom 2 and they had to sweat it out like Adam’s fans did the week before. Both of their fan bases are FURIOUS and DETERMINED like we were last week. Adam meanwhile had a great week and it’s beginning to look like we’ve lost our “edge”.

    Many of Adam’s fans are determined to see an Adam/Kris Finale and are willing to split votes between the two to try to make that happen. None of Danny’s core fans are splitting votes…they vote ONLY FOR DANNY. None of Kris’s core fans are splitting votes…they vote ONLY FOR KRIS. Adam really needs his core fans to VOTE ONLY FOR ADAM!!!!!

    Adam’s West Coast Voting is weak. According to the Geo Predictions he lost every state in the Western portion of the country during “Rock Week” except for California. Some have speculated that people in the west coast check a certain prediction site and when they see Adam is near the top of the list and others are in trouble, they don’t vote for him and vote for the person in trouble. That Prediction site has been way off all season and people need to start ignoring it!!! Don’t let it influence your votes!

    Adam’s fans are very “Chatty” during Voting Time. Last Tuesday there were nearly 400 people on-line at the Forum when East Coast/Central Voting was underway. Virtually Noone was on Kris or Danny’s Forums. This indicates they were more focused on Voting and using both hands to get in as many votes as possible while Adam fans were slower because they were reading & typing and only voting with one hand. Some of the people on-line may have been International fans and those in other time zones BUT when our voting block is open we really need to focus on voting and nothing else for the 2 hours.

    There is a faction of America that will not vote for Adam no matter how well he performs because of personal beliefs. Some of the media coming out this week in Entertainment Weekly and Time Magazine will only reinforce this issue.

    ADAM NEEDS EACH AND EVERY VOTE HE CAN GET. ADAM NEEDS HIS FANS TO RECRUIT NEW VOTERS AND PROMOTE HIM AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. ADAM NEEDS FANS TO VOTE NON-STOP FOR THE ENTIRE 2 HOURS WITH AS MANY PHONES AS THEY CAN GET THEIR HANDS ON. WE CAN GET ADAM TO THE TOP 2 BUT IT IS GOING TO TAKE FOCUS AND WORK!!!!!!!

    *There are many threads on the forum where you can learn more about Voting Techniques/Strategies, Recruitment Ideas, How to encourage people to vote, etc. Please read those if you haven’t already and let’s keep those ideas Bumped so they stay on the first few pages of the Forum*

    • AdamAddict says:

      I thought about that spliting votes too. Danny’s fans will only vote for Danny.Kris’s fans will only vote for Kris only. I know a lot of us wants to see Adam and Kris in finale,but DO NOT split your votes with Kris because at the end it’s probably Adam who’s going home. Let’s don’t bother about other 2 contenstants. Danny or Kris,who cares?

      Don’t split votes just because we prefer Kris then Danny. Let’s just concetrate in Adam.Because we only care for him. Make him win this title,guys! Vote for him and him only!

  44. I very much fear that if we do not all unite and work together to vote as much as possible for Adam, he will not be able to win his rightful title that is American Idol. We all know that there is no other contestant this season more deserving of that title than he is, and if someone else wins this, we will have let him down because he really wants and absolutely deserves to win.

    Adam is an amazing performer and artist, yes, but at this stage of the competition, it’s getting very fierce and a very close race, no one is safe and anyone could be sent home this week. Rat Pack Week’s results show surely was a wake-up call to all fans to keep voting, but I fear that after the insane voting we’ve done for Rock Week, we may have gotten over the outrage of seeing Adam threatened with elimination and we may not vote as much as we should for this week, the week when the last contestant will be eliminated.

    Please, everyone – Adam’s homecoming was a poor show compared to the enormous turnouts of Danny and Kris’ homecomings, and with Danny pulling out the dead wife sympathy card again during his homecoming, his fans will vote for him now more than ever, and we cannot let Adam down. If you are truly a fan of Adam Lambert you will vote for him as much as possible, you will gather as many voters for him as possible, you will not let your guard down and KEEP ON VOTING, you will not get over-confident and assume that it is all in the bag for Adam.

    Because it isn’t.

    If we are not careful, and not persistent in voting, it’s not impossible for Adam to be the one sent home this week – and we certainly do NOT want another tragedy like the nights Chris Daughtry and Jennifer Hudson were eliminated.

  45. I think Adam going to meet with the military families was really special and his National Anthem was beautiful. Asking to meet with the kids in the various music and arts class was really cool too. He is such an incredible person in addition to being such an amazing performer. I vote with two phones (land line & cell phone) entire two hours and am recruiting others. He must be in the finale or I will die. I am addicted to him….

    • AdamAddict says:

      I’m addicted with him too. What my life will be after A.I finish? Boooringg!!!

  46. AdamIsSex says:

    Love it!! He’s the best singer ever!!!

    PEOPLE DON’T THINK ADAM WILL WIN JUST BECAUSE HE’S THE BEST(EVER), HE NEEDS OUR VOTES!!! VOTE ADAM VOTE ADAM VOTE ADAM. DON’T DO ANYTHING OTHER. KRIS’ AND DANNY’S FANS ARE PERSISTENT. ADAM HAS MORE FANS THEN K&D BUT TO MANY OF THEM THINK “HE HAS A LOT OF FANS THEY’LL VOTE FOR HIM” IT DOESN’T MATTER HOW MANY FANS HE HAS WHEN THEY DON’T VOTE FOR HIM. PLEASE VOTE ADAM!!

  47. Adam should win American Idol – if he doesn’t I will lose my respect for the show and will likely stop watching it altogether. Undoubtedly if he does not win he will have a very successful career after that, but it just doesn’t seem right for either Kris or Danny to take the title from him.

    I hope America will get it right and vote for him until he is the winner of American Idol season 8 – and after that, we will eagerly be anticipating his first album which will, without a doubt definitely be good.

  48. Please DO NOT SPLIT YOUR VOTE—Adam deserves to win– he’s amazing!

  49. Ok does anybody know who the girl is getting her picture with Adam in front of the AT&T building at 2:47? I think I used to go to school with her,but cannot tell.

  50. oh wait I meant the girl at 1:21 in front of the AT&T building, who is she?

  51. Also from the American Idol Forum: How to text 10 VOTES at a time. Read on……

    ” There was a suggestion in another thread that is who-knows-where about texting. Basically, here’s what you do:

    Set up Adams # as 10 different contacts on your phone (Adam A, B, C, etc.). Then set up all these #’s as a group. When you text in your vote, text it to the group – you will now be texting 10x at once. After the text goes through all you have to do is resend it, just like you would with a single text.

    Do the math – if you average 20 texts in a 5 minute period, x that by 10…

    I was at Adam’s concert at his high school Friday . I am old enough to remember watching the Beatles and Elvis on Ed Sullivan and attending early Rolling Stones concerts. That’s what the hysteria was like. 7,000 fans , many screaming Adam, some crying. A primitive sound system on a makeshift stage…it was great…like the Beatles at Shea stadium.

    Adam sang “Black or White” and “Mad World”.

    SeaWorld had to cancel his appearance there Friday because over 25,000 fans showed up, the parking lot was packed and security and crowd control was an issue. They were not prepared for this type of crowd !
    Classic moments: A girl taking her shirt off and running 55 yards on the football field past security guards to get on the stage with Adam for a chance to hug him.

    Adam telling the limo driver to stop the car so he could comfort a young girl crying that she didn’t get to meet Adam.

    This is IDOL stuff….

  53. Singapore, Philippines, and the whole of South East Asia are backing Adam Lambert.
