Here it is, one week following Adam Lambert’s concert on the Jimmy Kimmel Live series, and I’d like to share some extra moments with you that Lila and I stumbled upon. I’m still so happy from the performance I saw. Adam’s style is truly evolving right before our eyes, and this latest phase is such a statement of his own artistry.

After Adam’s 5-song concert, which concluded around 8:30 PM, Lila & I walked across the street to the famous Mel’s Diner to have dinner. We even joked about the band coming in for a meal, since they all live in the area. On our way back to the car, we noticed a group of people huddled in the alley next to the El Capitan Theatre, where the Jimmy Kimmel Show is filmed. We asked a man standing there what was going on and he said they were “waiting for Adam Lambert to come out. He just gave a concert on the Jimmy Kimmel Show and he went inside but hasn’t come out yet.” We told him and his wife that we were at the concert too, and you could see the relief on his face, that he didn’t have to explain his stalker-ish behavior. Having just waited outside two San Diego radio stations for the same thrill a few weeks earlier, Lila and I could totally relate! He was there with his wife, celebrating their anniversary. They spent the day flying in from Dallas just for the concert! Another lady standing with us was there from Denver. (Travel statements like this were echoed by many fans in line for the show that day. Another testament to Adam’s continuing popularity.)

A few minutes passed, and Lee and Scarlett Cherry came out, followed by new-Glamily member, singer Octavia Latrice (@SincerliOctavia). On their way passing us, I asked Octavia if I could take a picture and she very nicely agreed.

A few minutes later, Adam, Sauli, Eber, singer Keisha Reneé (@KeishaRenee), and (I think) Keyboardist/Musical Director Brian London came out. This video from WorldMonitor.TV shows their studio entrance earlier in the day and at :15, their exit from the studio, where we were standing.

 Adam made a quick get-away in his fur-collared jacket, blowing a kiss and waving to the group. There were rumors flying around from all the fans “who know” that he was hosting a dinner with his father and Queen’s Brian May and Roger Taylor. Oh, to be at that table! On our way through the parking lot to our car, we noticed Octavia was still there, with 2 others. We stopped to chat, introducing ourselves as the nominees from the NNN Awards, and told her how much we had enjoyed their performance there. She told us that NNN Awards was their first time performing together and that they had so much fun. She told us she’s from Miami and that she came to sing with Adam through her professional relationship with Brian London. She has also sung with Natalie (Cole, I assume!) and Chaka Khan. I joked with her about Adam’s request for the fans to dress “more funky” and we wondered if funk was going to be the long, flowing gown that she wore at the NNN Awards!

Lila and I have realized that opportunities like this will probably happen again, and that we need to be armed with interesting things to talk about! Any ideas?

Love ya!

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! :)

      Funny, I thought that maybe it would be full too, but I don’t think anyone stopped there after the show. It was practically empty. Sounds like you had fun too! What a night!
