Looking through some of the recent comments, I see some long faces. Some of you have your chins dragging so much on your keyboard that one would think someone had died! This should be a time of celebration – Adam isn’t going anywhere, and neither are we! The only thing I see ending is a brief chapter in the book of Adam’s career. Remember when Season 8 ended and we thought we would die? What? No more weekly performances? No more new itunes videos and songs to download? How would we survive? But we did. We waited a few long weeks, and the tour began. Now that chapter, too, has ended, but Adam’s career is a tome, guys, not a comic book – there are plenty more pages to turn in the future. (And if you can’t get your fix by checking out our future articles, there are hundreds of existing photos and videos you can look at until your eyes bleed and your eyeliner melts!)
Adam deserves a break from the daily tour grind. My fear is that he won’t get enough of a break – there is recording to be done, more photo shoots, more interviews, more of everything Adam. And whether or not you believe it, I think we all need a break as well. How will our appetites be truly whetted for the solo tour unless we hunger first? Think about it – this is a time to party, not be sad!
I’m in the process now of coordinating a tour wrap-up party with Milwaukee’s small but passionate group of Glambs. So far I hope we can do an evening out with great food and the swapping of stories, photos and gifts. If you went to a concert with friends or family, are you planning a party? How will you celebrate?
If you can’t do a face-to-face party, let’s have a cyber party! Part 1 will be a “photo swap.” Pick out your favorite concert photo (performance photo or signing session photo) and email it to me at Jeanette@glambs.org. One photo per person, please! Over the coming weekend I will post the photos I receive. (Please include your name or screen name, which concert the photo is from, and if you took the photo, go ahead and brag so I can credit you!)
Part 2 is your favorite 3 concert moments. If you attended a concert, pick your favorite personal moments. If you were unable to attend in person, pick your favorite moments from the youtube videos or from the previous TOUR VIBE articles/comments. My personal favorite moments are these:
1. The post-concert signing session in Grand Rapids, MI, when I told Adam my name, touched his hand, and he stared straight into my eyes!
2. The Madison, WI concert, when I sat in the front row and was able to experience Adam’s performance up-close-and-personal (thanks again, Sandra!)
3. The Milwaukee, WI post-concert signing session, when I got my first autograph and touched Adam’s hand for the first time.
If any of you are truly computer challenged and have no way of obtaining some eye-damaging hot print photos, email me at Jeanette@glambs.org. I ended up with some pretty kick-ass photos, and I’m happy to share (won’t cost you.) Same goes for music – if you’re download-challenged and need a CD for your car, email me.
Now no more mourning, people!
