Adam Lambert Announces Glam Nation Tour Dates
Lambert will hit the road in June with Orianthi and Allison Iraheta for his summer tour.

The Lambert Army will finally get a chance to check out Adam Lambert live when he kicks off his Glam Nation Tour on June 4 in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. For the trek, he’ll be bringing along fellow “American Idol” alum Allison Iraheta and guitarist Orianthi.

While most of the announced tour stops in support of his For Your Entertainment album take place in June, more summer dates will be added. The tour winds up on September 18 in St. Petersburg, Florida, with stops all over the country in between.

“I hope the audience will be able to escape for a few hours and fall into a world full of glam, drama and excitement,” Lambert said in a press release. “And I would love everyone to come away with a new appreciation for the music on my album.”

While he already knows what it’s like to share the stage with Iraheta, he’s excited to be bringing Orianthi along for the tour. “I was lucky enough to work with Orianthi on the ‘Sleepwalker’ track on my album,” he said. “She is a killer guitarist and a great vocalist. I’m so excited to be sharing the stage with her.”

“I am such a fan of Allison’s music and I am so excited for her to perform it live in front of an audience,” Adam added about his pal Iraheta. “We have such a great brother-and-sister energy, having shared the stage both on ‘American Idol’ and on the tour [last] summer. She is pure rock and roll.”

So, what should fans expect from the show? Lambert teased that it’s very theatrical in nature and that he wants his costumes to be very “cutting-edge.” “I hope to use some special-effects lighting,” Lambert explained. “The Glam Nation Tour is going to be very theatrical. People won’t be let down in the glam department; it’ll definitely be something to look at as well as listen to.”

    Hummmm…no “South”? Well, hopefully he’s saving it for November. Houston or Dallas 🙂

    • Ellie Parchini says:

      I was hoping he would come to somewhere in Texas. Are these the final tour dates? I sure hope not.

    • I’m hoping for Texas too! The article says:
      more summer dates will be added. The tour winds up on September 18.

      There is plenty of room at the end of July and all of August, so those dates have not been planned out yet…

      • Ima Ramorah says:

        texas TEXAAS texas!!!!!!

        • me too! Sounds like we could fill up a venue from this site alone. Dallas had a shot last summer (I know it wasn’t the same) so I go for Houston, San Antonio or Austin!

    • EternalGlamNation says:

      This was on AdamOfficial this a.m., 4/28/10:

      @kyndoll hold your horses!! There are still tons of dates that haven’t been released. We are waiting for the venues to finalize details.

  2. Glenda #1946 says:

    What a beautiful picture of Adam…..his smile is soooo real and sincere…makes my day for sure!!! thank you Sue !!!

    • The pictures of him on that day in NYC were so special, having just come of the AMA adventure and the cancellations of his appreareances on ABC.
      I feel his beautiful spirit shone through so clearly in his eyes. It hurt my heart that some people weren’t able to see that in him at that time.

    • lovemyadam says:

      XOXO~ Love that smile…

      XO~SUE~GLAMB#10

  3. I’m still hoping he will come to Atlanta, Georgia. Sue, thanks for all you do on this site.

  4. Another Pacific Amphitheater date??? Hot damn!!!!! 🙂

  5. I agree…the South wants to see him in person, too! I went to the the Idol tour in Charlotte, NC last summer and loved it. However, I would REALLY love to see him doing the songs on his album. Don’t want him to burn himself out, though. I can always log on here to see him! Thanks!!!

  6. Libraglam says:

    LUV That smile !!!!

    That ‘s good that they added one more day in LA (july 27 costa mesa).

    • kara aka perfectlyflawed says:

      Ok Adam wheres the date for washington state please please add one!

  7. that is one of my very favorite pictures. PURE HEAVEN!!!! AAAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!

  8. Adam looks an awful lot like his brother in this photo. And that, my friends, is a compliment!

  9. Lucky enough.. will not miss June 22 concert in NY.. can’t wait

    • Mari were you able to secure tickets to the Nokia? I used my password and I was informed that
      the sale of tickets to the public will go on sale, 5/01/10.

  10. Carol Ann says:

    How does the password option work for the advanced tickets offering ? Do you have to purchase those tickets through ticketmaster? I want to go to the Royal Oak concert and I’m not sure the password option will work if the venue is called directly .

    • Password is Glitter 2010.
      Most tickets have been bought up by scalpers so these venues show up as sold out but they are not, These people want you to buy from them.
      There is so much tension about this in AO it is crazy, people are at their witts end. I just gave up and realized I didn’t want to be a wreck about buying tickets so I bought them on Ticket liquidators. Shoot me if you want for supporting them by buying through them but they are the ones with the tickets, it is a reality.

  11. when did they add a second concert in Costa Mesa? i’m trying to get tickets but it looks like all the good seats are sold! ;(

    • Interesting. They’re not selling tickets for the 27th on Ticketmaster yet. I’m amazed and proud that Adam can sell out an 8,500 seat venue and require a second night! You go, dude! P.S., Sue, thanks for the pic. He looks just gorgeous!

      • I’m thinking this may be a rumor.

        • Nope, apparently it’s true. And Adam, in a tweet, said there are “tons of dates” for the tour that are yet to be released. Yay!

          • Still haven’t seen anything on Ticketmaster or OC Fair websites yet. I already have tix, but I want him to come to San Diego, too!

  12. lambertrox says:

    I was hoping he’d be coming to Arizona… Oh well, California is close by.

  13. Lori Carmone says:

    I’ve seen that he is scheduled for Atlantic City at the Borgatta Jund 26th and the Norva in Norfolk on June 30th (tickets go on sale her locally her Friday April 30th)..why are these sites not listed?? I’d hat e to buy tickets only to find he’s not coming as I have family coming in from Colorado to attend.

    • They did list the June 26th date at the Borgata I believe. And June 30th in Norfolk? It isn’t listed on his official site. Where did you get this information?

  14. YES YES YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I live in St. Petersburg, fl where the tour ends!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  15. REDSTAR040665 says:

    Adam has such beautiful teeth. Has he ever had braces? Of course, everything about him is gorgeous, but I have been curious for awhile. Can you find out for me, please?

    Thanks.

    • Libraglam says:

      ADAM’s mom (Leila) was a dental hygienist before she became Interior Designer. I bet she has taken good care of his son’s teeth since young. Yeah…he had braces in one of his 10 yrs old pictures ..you can find on ‘youTube” but i have to give credit to his Mom for giving birth such a wonderful /beautiful person (Almost 8 out of 10 kids in US had braces when they were young, but verry few people have such nice beautiful teeth)

  16. Yes, we definetely need him here in Charlotte, NC !!!!!! Hopefully….

  17. leilani aloha says:

    Love it how Adam’s fans are call ” Adam’s Army ” :):):):)

    Yes, we all love Adam !!!
    Thanks to all Adam’s fans for protecting our idol & being so so resourceful
    Thanks Sue for all the update

  18. LuvAdam476 says:

    Sue thank you for the beautiful photo and Glam Nation tour dates so far.
    Still waiting for a date in Tulsa, OK. Keeping my fingers crossed. We love him here in OK also.

    ADAM ROCKS MY WORLD (ROCK & SEX GOD)!!!
    ADAM IS PURE PERFECTION!!!

  19. gran4adam says:

    My favorite picture….until I see another one….his smile is magical and his spirit shines through. Thank you again, Sue.

  20. HAS ANYONE THATS GONE TO ANY OF ADAMS OTHER CONCERTS FIND THEY ONLY HAD GA NO SEATS STANDING ONLY.I CALLED ALL THE VENUES THAT I COULD POSSIBLY GO TO.TOLEDO,COLUMBUS,NEW YORK AND ATLANTIC CITY.ALL STANDING.NOW I DON’T MIND STANDING FOR A LITTLE WHILE BUT KNOWING THERES A SEAT BEHIND YOU IS COMFORTING IN CASE YOU NEED TO SIT FOR A FEW MINUTES.AND ONE LOOK AT THAT BEAUTIFUL MAN MAY BE A NEED TO SIT TO CATCH YOUR BREATH.WILKES BARRE WAS THE ONLY ONE I CALLED THAT HAD SEATS.I MAY JUST HAVE TO WAIT IT OUT TO SEE IF HE HAS ANY ADDED VENUES THAT I CAN MAKE IT TO.I’M REALLY,REALLY SAD.I,VE BEEN WAITING FOR THE TOUR JUST AS YOU ALL HAVE.

    • You dont really need a seat at Adams concert because you and everyone in the venue is standing and dancing during the entire concert!! I’ve been to 2 now and thats what happened. Dont’ worry about the seat; you won’t be needing it!!

  21. ATL ADAM ATL:)Please come to the dirty South:)Actually it is Beautiful:)Adam could Definitely fill up Gwinnett Arena:)I know he said he wants Small and Intimate:)But for the show he wants to do being in a arena sized venue would be Amazing:)People went CRAZY FOR ADAM ON THE TOUR LAST SUMMER:)

  22. As far as I know, there is no 2nd Costa Mesa date. His site makes no mention of a 2nd date. Where did this information come from?

  23. KO's smiling says:

    We need more tour dates! I have to be at weddings anytime he comes near me! I love you, Adam, but I can’t miss this fun family stuff.

  24. ianaleah says:

    I know at least one venue was sold out last week-end, and the Pacific Amphitheatre seems to be as well. So I have an idea, if fans log onto their local event center and type Adam’s name into the search box -and / or call it’s box office for a concert for Adam, it might be added on. It happened in Canada, he has two concerts scheduled and a third was added because enough people wanted tickets. Fingers crossed.

  25. Tweeterpie says:

    I really hope he’ll be coming to the Seattle /Tacoma area or at least somewhere in the NorthWest B4 his tour is over. I’m keeping my finger crossed…. but in the mean time I’ll just have to look forward to everyone else’s postings and videos I guess. Better than nothing I suppose but PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE God help direct Adam come to Tacoma and/or Seattle so I can see him. It’s my best medicine!!! Thank-You & AMEN! 🙂

    • retrogrrrl says:

      Hi Tweeterpie! I am praying for Seattle, Tacoma, Portland & Vancouver (I live in Tacoma) & want to go to as many shows close as possible! I hauled my old arse up to Canada to see him at the Red Robinson Theatre & soooooo glad I did, it was so worth it! Now all I can think of is when can I see him AGAIN! If you hear anything about tickets close to us PLEASE email me at retrogrrrl8@yahoo.com and I’ll keep my ears & eyes open for any info too. I want to hang with Pacific NW Glambs!!!

      • Hey friend ive been thinking about you! Hope all is good!Did you get my last email?hope so

    • Another Northwest fan here: I have absolute faith we will be seeing Adam here this summer. We’ll keep sending all those positive thoughts out into the universe as well. Just a funny little NW tidbit I wanted to pass on, which in my opinion proves that Adam MUST come here to sing for us again: A co-worker of mine said her husband was listening to a Seattle (well-known) talk radio show, hosted by a certain semi-conservative man, who apparently had a listener who called in to rant about the “typical northwest liberals” who are “tree-hugging, ADAM LAMBERT LOVING, hippies” etc., which he or she must have thought was quite an insult to those of us who wear that label proudly but I took it as a huge compliment. I guess he is now a Northwest icon in addition to being a world mega-star. Right up there with Bill Gates, Starbuck’s and Jimmy Hendrix!!! Amen to that too!!!

  26. Stefanie says:

    Hi there everyone,

    I don;t know if you can find it, but here’s a link to Adam interview en performing at a radiostation called 3fm in Holland. It was last night 27 -4. I hope the link works so you can enjoy it!

    http://www.metmichiel.nl/page/detail/audio/786382/adam-lambert-in-de-studio!-luister-en-kijk!

  27. josephine says:

    Hey everyone,

    I always come here to look at all the news but never actually comment…
    But anyway i thought i’d post the link to the interview from yesterday he did in amsterdam.

    http://www.metmichiel.nl/page/detail/audio/786382/adam-lambert-in-de-studio!-luister-en-kijk

    There are two video’s from the songs he did and at the bottom you can hear the interview, but there are clips with video on youtube. It says on the side that this link will be updated with pictures later.

    • That is so much fun to hear Adam on the Dutch Radio! Especially the part where the DJ tells him that he can say anything he wants, they are no retrictions on Dutch Radio or Television….
      I so hope he will perfrom in Holland soon and that I will be there!!
      Paradiso! Carre! So many cool places…..

  28. Guys you all need to read this! Just found an amazing website for downloadind songs, videos and interviews and a lot more!. everything about adam, I downloaded a hunderds of videos.

  29. Jane Parker says:

    NO North Carolina dates yet!! OR anywhere close! 🙁
    I have my fingers crossed that he will GLAM through this Tarheel state!!

    • I did buy tickets for the Norfolk show, This is the first time I will see him in concert, I can barely believe it. After watching all these amazingly endearing videos of him from Europe I will now get to see The Beast as well!!!! His duality keeps my head spinning like crazy.
      Of course I also hope he will still come to NC.

  30. We need our Adam fix in Pittsburgh!!!!

  31. Evette #419 says:

    Toni s #436–are you saying none of the theaters provide seating or are the sro because they are sold out? I can’t buy my ticket to the W-B show until Friday. They go on sale today to Kirby Center members and Fan Club members. I tried to buy my ticket through ticketmaster with the fan club code but couldn’t get through. I never bought concert tickets on line before. Waiting for the tickets reminds me of how we had to wait for the release of FYE. And that worked out great! I’m just so afraid all the tickets will be sold out by Friday. I’ll die if I miss this show. And, of course, I want the best seat I can get. I don’t mind standing if that’s what I have to do but I know the Kirby wont sell sro tickets. I’m making myself sick worrying about this and to top it all off EVERYBODY at work knows how much I love ADAM. They are going to make soooooooooo much fun of me if I don’t get a ticket!! 2 more days just 2 more days. Its so great to have a place to post our comments. I love this site. Unfortunaltely I don’t get to post alot since I get the e-mails late and most of the posting has been done but I hope to post more in the future. I hope EVERYONE gets the tickets to the shows they are hoping for!!!

    • lovemyadam says:

    Can anybody assist me with this and are others having the same problem?
    slainte!

  33. Lindaincanada says:

    Hey they have to send Adam to our beutiful little town of Kelowna B.C. Canada. It’s like Canada ‘s California. Lots of great wine and lots of Adam Lambert fans. Even Elton John is coming again in July. I Think Adam is one of the best singers to come around in ages and I love his music. Thank you Sue for all the hard work you are doing to keep us informed. Your fantastic.

  34. Sure hope there will be more dates added for August in the SouthWest!!

  35. OMG!! OMG!! OMG!! I have 3 places to choose from, just hope I get to go! If not, I’m gonna be REALLY P.O.’d
    Adam is Insanely fine as hell, and I saw where he was from Indianapolis…I live in Richmond. Come back home sexy!!

    Love you Adam!!

    Tina

  36. HI EVETTE #419 NO WORRIES I WASN’T SAYING THEY SOLD OUT.I WAS MERELY SAYING THEY DIDNT PROVIDE SEATING AT SOME OF THE VENUES.WIKES BARRE PROVIDES SEATING.I LOVE ADAM AS MUCH OF ALL OF YOU BUT I’VE BEEN SUFFERING WITH BACK PROBLEMS AND WOULD NEED TO SIT DOWN EVERY NOW AND THEN.

  37. adam please try to add Charlotte, NC. We really want you to be in the southeast anywhere!!!!!

  38. I want a poster of this gorgeous photo!!

    Like so many others have said, it is my favorite.

  39. Sue
    Do you know when tickets will be available for Adams Milwaukee concert?
    Jill

  40. Libraglam says:

    BTW, for those who are looking for a place to stay for the July 27 or 28 concert at Costa Mesa. Just wanna share with you that some Best western is giving promotional rates 3 or 2 nights ( Best Western Palm Garden Inn) (about 15 – 20 mins away from Costa Mesa). Usually go directly to Best Western website is cheaper.Good luck of hunting for hotels

  41. courtneyymarie says:

    when do the tickets for July 27th at Pacific Amphitheatre go on sale? I can’t find it anywhere.

  42. Wicked Glitter says:

    I hope there isn’t a pre-sale on tickets for the Micchigan concert while I’m at work! If they plan on having a pre-sale I hope they tell us in advance so I can arrange to be on the phone. I called the Royal Oak theatre in Michigan, and they said tickets will not be sold at the Tickert Master outlet sites, which I thought was very strange. I live near one, and it would be easier to go there just before they go on sale. I will be so upset if I can’t get tickets! I have been looking forward to this all year.

  43. Bellelinda says:

    We are eagerly waiting to see where Adam will be appearing in the Southeast as we live in South Carolina. Can’t wait to see him again. We went to Charlotte last year for the Idol Tour. Can’t wait to see him perform again…we never tire of his album…play it constantly at home. His talent never stops amazing us. His changing versions of “What Do You Want From Me?” keep improving on a song that what had appeared to be perfection..it just keeps getting better and better. Adam’s is fabulous and his unique voice and talents just continue to grow and evolve to a higher and higher level?

  44. I absoultly love adam…he is the bomb…the fuse…and the sparkle!!!!
