***UPDATED WITH BEST CONCERT VIDEOS TO DATE & INTERVIEW*** Kradam, Manny, (love that!!!) and the rest of the gang roll into Baltimore for a show at the 1st Mariner Arena on Wednesday, August 5th. From both fan reviews and media reports, Adam continues to be the unqualified star of the show – but then we all knew that! Even so, it’s fun to hear about everyone’s individual experience in attending the concerts, so if you will be attending the Baltimore show, please comment with your review.
In the meantime, for your daily fix of eye and ear candy, check out the Greensboro TOUR VIBE – I’ve just uploaded photos, videos, and a brand new interview with Adam! Also added are videos for Charlotte – the audio and visual both for the Starlight video are incredible! I have to say that I LOVE Starlight…one of the genres I write is science fiction, so this song has a lot of meaning for me. It’s a whistful, haunting love story that transports me to a different place.
I’d like to take an opportunity to address something that came up in comments yesterday. This isn’t directed at any one person, but as a general warning to everyone. We are an invested target audience. This means all of us want something very badly – that, of course, is to meet Adam in person. As with any invested group of people, we are therefore the target of scam artists. I know about scams very well, having been a victim myself in the past (to the tune of hundreds of dollars.) I am a writer, and writers, too, are an invested group – they all want to be published! Literary agent scams are famous, and they always involve asking for money up front. This is the number one way you can tell a scam – YOU WILL BE ASKED FOR MONEY UP FRONT. It may be a small amount of money, and you may be willing to pay it, but DON’T!
One other way you can spot a scam is by its unprofessional nature. The website in question yesterday, when I looked at it, was a very poorly designed and amateurish squeeze page. It used Adam’s photo from his official website, which I am sure that nobody has permission to use except 19 Entertainment, along with a supposed “previous contest winner” posing with Adam. That photo could have been of anyone.
Again, this subject is meant only to educate, not to embarrass anyone. In fact, I’m glad it happened because it is a good learning experience for all of us. As I said, I’ve been a victim myself, which has caused me to be more aware and more careful nowadays. We are a passionate lot, and passion can sometimes override common sense, so please – I just want everyone to take a step back and think before making decisions, especially where money is concerned. Okay, enough of the lecture! There is no concert on August 6th, so I promise all of you some big-time FUN in tomorrow’s post!
If you have photos and/or videos from either this concert or any of the past concerts, please email them to us! We never, ever tire of seeing Adam in action. Our email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
