FULL CONCERT!! Adam Lambert Dazzles Shanghai With The Original High!

After a month of USA radio concerts, Adam Lambert has begun The Original High tour in front of the world. This is the global superstar’s second official solo tour and he’s fulfilling predictions made by Simon Cowell and every fan from early American Idol days about his international reach. Bravo!

Right from the start, you’ll see an amazing show, from the First Class Opening to Electrifying Video Screens, Stunning Costumes, Highly-Talented Band, Exciting Dancers . . . AND A FULL 90-MINUTE PERFORMANCE FROM ADAM! The set list goes back as far as Mad World and includes numbers from the Glamnation Tour, Trespassing and current album The Original High.

The Shanghai concert was held in the Mercedes Benz Arena which holds 18,000 and has a smaller club-like venue in the basement, The Mixing Room. From the audience shots, it looks like Adam is filling the larger arena! In fact, on their Wikipedia page, Adam is the first “global superstar” on the list of performers who have appeared there.

We can’t wait until he comes home and takes this tour all across the USA! But from Adam’s current schedule, it looks like it probably won’t be anytime before summer because he’s booked pretty solid around the world with this tour and with Queen! However, there is a nice break mid-Feb to mid-April suggesting a possible appearance on American Idol‘s farewell, which according to AmericanIdolNet has its finale on April 7th.

For now, enjoy this showing!

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. This is so exciting, thanks Carol. Can’t wait to read more. I wish he could sell seats like this in the US. I’ll be watching for your articles. I hope to get to see him soon in the US.

  2. What a fabulous set list. Thanks Carol.

  3. I had Fox New on and I heard Ghost Town in the background as they were going into a break.

    Dang it, it was pulled, but if you go to YouTube you can sometimes find them before they’re pulled!

  5. You can find individual songs, like this one. But wow, he really changed them up. Not sure I like this weird reggae version of If I Had You, but I guess since he needs to fill 90 minutes, he needs to do his older songs and wants to add variety to them.
