The Idols leave the East Coast to travel to Pennsylvania for a show on Thursday, August 20th at the Wachovia Center in Philadelphia. This, for me, is the start of the tour! This concert marks a turning point for me and all the other Midwesterners out there, for the tour is finally headed to the Heartland. We’ve waited weeks now (seems like months!) for our turn as the gang did numerous shows in California and New York. Someone commented recently that they wished we could skip the month of September in order to be that much closer to the debut of Adam’s album, but lots of us would argue against that! The tour is only a little more than half over, and with respect to our friends on both coasts and in the South, there are lots of shows remaining and a lot of us eagerly anticipating *our* chance to see Adam in person.
As I write this, my Milwaukee concert is only 9 days away – 9 days that are going to be sloooooow, agggggggonizing torment, like waiting for the date of a lifetime with the one guy you never thought would ask you out. That date will start when I walk into the Bradley Center. The first 8 Idols will be teasing foreplay, and then when the fog rolls, the lights explode, and the screen counts down A – D – A – M…well, the angel will be singing, in more ways than one.
If any of you Midwesterners out there can relate to my feeling that the tour truly begins in earnest in Philadelphia, please comment, and if you’re going to the Philadelphia show, please share your experiences with us. Also, don’t forget to share your photos. If you have photos and/or videos from either this concert or any of the past concerts, please email them to us! Our email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Side note: Can some of you please assign yourselves the job of checking on a regular basis for the availability of 2010 Adam calendars? We all want to know the very minute they’re available for purchase!!!
Second side note: I heard a rumor that the Adam Elle issue will be December. I haven’t been able to confirm this, so if one of you wants to go on “Elle” watch for us, that would be super!
