The gang travels to Hamilton, Ontario for a show on Friday, August 14th at the Copps Coliseum. The tour has now passed the halfway mark, 27 shows down, 25 to go. The Idols are all clearly exhausted, and probably none more so than Adam. I hope all are able to take care of themselves and catch a second wind.
Did all of you get a chance to check out Adam’s tweets from his Twitter party last night? If you read some of his earlier tweets, you know that he’s under doctor’s orders not to do any post-concert signings so that he can rest his voice. I’m not sure how long this will be for – hopefully not the entire rest of the tour. So Adam, to make up a little for disappointing his fans, decided to hold the Twitter party. Now he did NOT have to do this. I don’t know how many other performers would have cared that much about their fans to go out of their way to do something like that. I’m sure he wants to take care of his fans, but he also knows he has to take care of himself. I’m sure it’s a very difficult balancing act that he has to maintain every single day in order to stay healthy not only physically but mentally, and to try to please us at the same time.
I didn’t read the tweets until today. It’s a lot like jeopardy – you have the answer, but what’s the question? Some were very obvious, others not so much. It was a little frustrating not knowing some of the questions, but also kind of fun, like a game, trying to figure them out. Do any of you have the questions to some of the not-so-obvious answers? If so, please share in your comments.
I have to say, though, that I don’t quite understand giving Perez Hilton “air time.” I don’t like the guy at all, and it would have been nice to answer a fan’s question in that spot instead of a celebrity’s question. I’m also not thrilled with Adam’s answer. I know it was probably meant to be funny, but it was more information than I want to know. Geez, with all the details of Adam’s life coming out in recent interviews, SOME things should be kept private. Just my opinion.
BTW, thanks to Michael – I hear he was the Idol who invented the “Twitter Party!”
And lastly, here’s something fun! An interview from a couple of days ago:
