Can I just state here and now that there are no words to describe how much I wish this was me? This is Linda, our Glambs Fan Club Head Honcho, who was at the Duluth concert on July 31st. The following are her photos with Adam and her post-concert report.
I’m a bit inchoherent right now…
I’m not going to write about the concert because it’s basically the same thing that everyone else has written. We had horrible seats, sort of behind the stage and way up high, but Adam stole the show and had the biggest crowd reaction in my opinion. It was a great crowd, totally packed stadium, and a lot of fun.
After the show, my friends and I were lucky enough to have backstage passes to meet the idols. We were ushered into this room, and we all stood around waiting. Matt was the first one to come in. He is shorter than I thought he was, but cute. He started going around signing autographs and posing for pictures. He was followed by Allison, Lil, Scott, Danny, Anoop, and Megan. I didn’t see Michael or Kris. People were very respectful, and no one went running up and cutting others out of line. Being a NY’r, that impressed me. LOL Oh by the way, I never did see Michael, but got to talk to Kris at the end. Kris is also adorable and very personable, as was Scott. I didn’t really have conversastions with the others. They were all friendly though, and spent time with the fans and made us all oh so very glad to be there.
OK.. the part you want to hear… when Adam came out. I admit that I sucked my breath in and said ‘Oh my God there he is!” but luckily he didn’t hear me. Others did, however, and just smiled. He went to this part of the room and immediately a huge line formed behind him. He talked to everyone, signed their stuff, posed for pictures, and was a real sweetheart. He did not rush anyone along. I didn’t want to wait on that long line, but also didn’t want the end to come and have him leave without getting a chance to meet him. So on the line I stood. After awhile, the guards did start moving the line along faster. Finally it was my turn. He signed something for me, and then looked at me with those eyes and smiled. Luckily, I didn’t faint, but instead said something very profound and intelligent like, “I came here all the way from New York”. He smiled again (damn, he’s handsome!) and hugged me. I may never wash again. Then we took our picture, and had a really nice, decent length conversation. At some point, he called me “babe”. Did you get that? Adam Lambert called me babe!!! Then I said I hope to see you again sometime, and he said something like, oh, you definitely will. I got on line again later but the guard knew I had already been there so he politely said to let others go, which I did. Adam looked at me like he would have let me have another turn. He is as sweet and personable as he appears, and even more handsome if possible. I had so much more I wanted to say, but it went so fast and I wasn’t able to plan out my speech. I will say the conversation flowed, and it was so easy to talk to him.
Tell me this is not a dream……..and if it is, please don’t wake me up!
WOW!!! All I can say is that I am going to close my eyes, picture these photos in my mind, and concentrate with every bit of imagination that I possess that this is me!
Linda, thanks for sharing your experience with us, and may you never wash those clothes ever again.
