When Adam Rocked the Windy City!

I hope you all don’t mind a few more Adam pics!  🙂

This Chicago concert review is from Alicia, who was gracious enough to send some awesome pics to tourphotos@glambs.org as well! A self-admitted lurker, Alicia may make her first forum appearance after this post. This is an excerpt of her experience:

“I was lucky enough to attend the show in Chicago from 6th row! I went with a friend, she was a Danny fan, me Adam.
I got to meet Matt, Danny, Michael and Scott at the afternoon barricades. After [the] show, Allison, Megan, Lil, Anoop, Danny(again) & Adam came out. I got autos from everyone. Kris was the only one I missed. :(”

“[At] the concert, I was surrounded by so many Adam & Kris fans. I noticed a lot of families with kids, couples, and just all around women. We all were chatting before the show about our favorites, so much fun!”

“The excitement buildup before Adam came out was intense, the screams and shrills were pretty crazy! It was awesome, [and]he was mesmerizing. I stayed for the whole show and still got a front spot at the barricades. I was able to meet him for the few seconds and he signed a pic I printed out from another fan. I told him his set was captivating and thanked him, he smiled and said “Thank you”. This very young girl (maybe 14) next to me started crying, it was pretty intense. He is beautiful and seemed to exude calmness amongst all the screaming and chaos.”

“Overall, the show was so much fun. Adam was a stand out for me, but I really tried to enjoy everyone’s sets, since they are all so different. This was a talented group and I am thankful to have seen them all perform before they head their separate ways.”

Thanks, Alicia! And now, what you have been really waiting to see…

  1. Alicia, these pics are awesome and I had goosebumps reading your article. I can relate to the 14 year old as I would probably just ball my eyes out if I were her, after much screaming and gesticulating!

    Looking forward to more posts from you! Mwah, Ingrid

    • Thank you Ingrid! It was an incredible night, seared into my memory! I wish I could see them again! So looking forward to his solo career and hopefully we’ll all have more stories to share on his concerts to come! 🙂

      THANK YOU to this great website for posting my pics and sharing my experience! 🙂

  3. These pictures are fantastic! I love the ones with him and Allison, they have such a great friendship and it definetly shows whenever they are together. I really do hope they do another duet in the future.
    Thanks for sharing your expierience, Alicia! Sounds like you had a blast at the concert. And lucky you, you got to exchange a few words with Adam! He’s so sweet, I’m so glad to know that he’s as great in person as he is in front of a camera.
    Take care!

    • Peaches –
      Did you receive my interest in joining a Texas fan group, yesterday?

      • Same here,Peaches! I really love the picture of Adam and Allison! Too cute! 😀

      • Yes, I did, Skippy. 🙂 Just go to the Fanship, Friendship and Family post and there will be links to join. See you there!
        -Peaches

        • I too am interested in the Texas fan group. I will check that link out. Brandy have fun tonight. Take many pics for those of us who live through the rest of you lucky enough to go and get to see Adam.

    Alicia,
    thank you for sharing your experience and your AMAZING pictures of ADAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Love,
    Silvana

  5. AdamAddict says:

    Silvana told me that if you click “+” quickly,not only one vote that count but how many times you click. I think I usually click one time before, and I think it only add 1 vote! I think!! Just now I tried to click quickly, and I saw they add 5 votes!! So, I’m doing it that way now! So,guys try that way.We got nothing to loose! VOTE FOR ADAM!!
    http://tweeterwall.mallplace.com/tw/worldwide/world-idol
    NO KIDDING, THERE ONLY ABOUT 1,200 THAT SEPERATE THEM APART!CLAY IS REALLY CATCHING UP,I’M SERIOUSLY SKERD!!

    • Silvana/Argentina says:

      Emili,
      do you know when this contest ends? Because i still can’t vote. maybe it is because I’m at work, and this server won’t allow it…i don’t know. I’ll try when I’m back home.

    • Silvana/Argentina says:

      Emili,
      it WORKED. At last I couldo vote, and pressing really fast you can add more votes.

    • AdamAddict, I click a few times and it takes up to three if I remember correctly! Will keep on clicking!

      • Silvana/Argentina says:

        Ingrid,
        I just found Marisa’s and your post at the Indiannapolis thread. Answered there and also at the Fanship…thread translated marisa post and told her what you asked me to say.
        It will be fun, writting and translating…..just hope to remember where….it will be crazy

        • Ahhh, thanks Silvana, you’re such a honey! I said honey, not horny but maybe that is true too. You tell me!

          • Silvana/Argentina says:

            Ingrid,

            impossible not to be when looking at Adam……These photos and the Grand Rapids vids……TOO MUCH…..

            I’m fighting over him with AdmAddict in another thread. HAHAHAHAHA

    • Helen/Canada says:

      Hi AdamAddict
      Last night when I went to bed, it was only about 800 votes separating them. This morning, it is about 1300–so that’s good! I was skerd that when I woke up this morning, that other person would be ahead. So now I will try clicking very quickly to see if I can get more votes in. I wish this thing was over already, I’m not getting anything done!!!

      • YESSS,people!! We click really2 fast and make more votes!! YAY!! I was like close my eyes and then click,click,click and when I open my eyes the “+” already disappeared long time ago already! LOL!! I too excited when I know we can do that. I got 4 or 5!No wonder Clay catching up with Adam so fast! Thanks to Marisa and Silvana ,the transalator!Hahaha! But I think someone else mention about it before, like if you click twice quickly you get 2 votes! But never thought that we can get like 5 or 8 like lia09 said.Now,I’m pumped up!Don’t stop, Clay is still not far behind.

        Helen,is it really true that only like 800 votes seperated them yesterday? Wow,that’s scary! Everytime I woke up, I go to my computer and then open this link.Before it open,I get really nervous! It feels like the moment everytime Ryan going to say who is going home.When I saw Clay picture on the right and Adam picture on the left,I was relief!Then I check the votes, I got upset again!!

        Lorrin,maybe you should go to that Adam sites again and ask them to click quickly.We cannot waste more time.While only some of us click many 2 times,the rest may not know about it and click only once.And Clay is already like a pro voting for himself!And maybe tweet to Adam the link then all his fans that gonna read what other twat to Adam might see it and vote.Adam won’t see it because he doesn’t read twat often!

        Clay and his fans really got nothing to do,huh?Sit there in front of the screen and vote like every 20mins for the whole day, and then probably google Adam,watch him in youtube…No I’m talking about them not us! We are different from them.We have something that they don’t have! We have Adamgasm!LOL! We get horny eveyrtime we see Adam.Clay’s fans don’t and can’t get horny over that…Clay!!Still voting and I keep voting! CHERYL,MARYC AND EVERYONE THAT GO TO GRAND RAPIDS, IS THE SHOW OVER OR WHAT??COME BACK HERE AND HELP US!!ASAP!!
        P/S:Allison and Kris also rising,still far way from Adam tho but rising quickly! DID ANYONE KNOW WHEN IS THE CLOSING DATE?IT’S FRUSTARATED WHEN WE DON’T KNOW,IS IT?Maybe they wait for Clay to beat Adam then close it.Then the next day,they can make it huge story about it??!!Argh, Helen,pills,please!!

        • Helen/Canada says:

          Hi Guys
          Alright guys, we have to step it up now. It’s Mon. night, 9:30 p.m. and the gap between Adam and that other person is only 1335. This afternoon it was as high as 1675. That means, he’s catching up to Adam. Let’s not slow down now, keep voting!!!!!

    • just now adam is leading and there is only 1.327 votes ahead of the ugly clay. i got 6 at a time, need to turn off the computer then do it all over again. i will yry it again tonight i need to go out somewhere today and maybe look also for the ones voting for clay and tie their hands.

  6. Do like adamaddict says, you can even get 8 votes!

    • I WENT TO THIS SITES AND ASKED THEM TO VOTE, MANY SAYS THAT THEY GOT PROBLEM WITH IT UNTIL THEY REALLY FED UP!! THEY CAN’T GET IN! YOU THINK CLAY’S FANS GOT SAME PROBLEM??OR JUST US WITH ADAM??!!

  7. Thank you!!!!…..Jane, Peaches & Silvana for your kind words! One more week of the tour, can’t wait to hear more experiences and pics! 🙂

  8. And also,vote this when you got time because Adam really close to David Archie. I think he can win this too! But our priority is Adam VS Clay!!

    • Thank you, AdamAddict! We can always count on you! Mad World was amazing!!!!!! Such emotion in his voice and face!!!

      Jane

    • AdamAddict, don’t get worried now but those videos

      AAAAHHHHHH!!! AAAHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!! AAAAHHHHHH!!!! OMG, the camera loves this guy but not as much as I DO. It does’nt matter how many times I watch Adam, it’s alway like it is the first time, he is so exciting, those moves!!!!!!!!!! I can close my mouth now.

      • AdamAddict says:

        You should close your mouth a while ago, your saliva is all over the keyboard! How are you going to vote for Adam now?? But I think the clicking as fast & as many as you can really work! If we keep doing that,our Adam will leave Clay behind! It’s 5am and still voting!I can’t believe myself! I’m super impressive!!! Hahaha!!I’m so proud of myself! But I’ll go to bed pretty soon,because my back is hurt a bit and my butt getting numb and my finger is cramping!

        • Silvana/Argentina says:

          OHHHH Emili, you really make me laugh.
          I’ll continue to vote……hope this contest will be over soon, or I’ll get fired.
          At home I’ll watch the videos. thank you as always.
          Love,
          Silvana (the translator, you will be seing a lot of me under that job…)

        • OH, AdamAddict, you make me laugh, I am super impressed with you, 5 am and still awake, you deserve an award. I will start voting again at 5 am when I get up to get ready for work. Look after yourself, go and rest, you are needed tomorrow to get everyone voting, I will be voting from work.

    • I actually thought I was going to FAINT watching this version of Whole Lotta Love! Holy F***! Was Adam smokin’ HOT or WHAT???!!! Can’t wait to hear what that was like for Jeanette and the others to see IN THE FLESH!!! WHEWWWW!!

    • Silvana/Argentina says:

      Emili, t
      he videos are AMAZING. He is SOSOSOSOSOSO HHHHHHHHOOOOOOOOOTTTTTTTT
      He is particularly happy, smiling, hving fun in Let’s Dance, and the beggining or Starlight.
      I was thinking all the time about Cheryl (the other Glambs, too) but especially Cheryl….its her first time….and he was so beautiful…. She must be so happy.

      Cheryl, I’m sure you enjoyed.

    • Thanks sooooo much for the vids Emili… your great !!!!

    • Thanks, Emili, it was wonderful reliving our ‘live experience’. We had very good seats, not the floor but just about 30 ft away and up a little bit, no neck craning or twisting needed. Jeanette got her super shots from there, but she also has a super camera, a Sony 10 Mp.

  9. Alicia, Thanks for your Post and the great piics, I’ll never get tired of seeing pics of Adam, his expression are priceless, just can’t get over this man, how great is he !!!!!!

  10. disconnect internet right after voting then connect again . Open the website and the + sign is there. U can vote like every 2 minutes.

    • That doesn’t work for me – I tried it already. (But thanks for the suggestion – glad you can vote more often!!)

    • I am able to click really fast wait a few seconds and refresh and walaaaa the + sign is there again.. I have voted and voted….. when does it end !!!!!!??????

  11. This interview is good, not what happened to Adam is good but different than the rest.So Adam is the 1st ,if you don’t want to see the rest then you can stop. But Adam school days,awww!!
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MnB02YkWrXA&eurl=http%3A%2F%2Fgossipcandy%2Ecom%2F&feature=player_embedded

    And Alicia, thank you again for that great pictures! I LOVE IT!! And you got Adam’s autograph! WOW!! I wonder when can I get his autograph??!! Awww!! 🙁

    • I would’nt expect anything less from Adam, can you imagine red hair with those eyes?

      • AdamAddict says:

        Toni,
        Have you seen Blue Adam?He’s like cutie smurf!! Hahaha! I don’t care if he has red or orange hair,already so in love with him! But I can’t lie dark hair suits him most! His blue killer eyes popped with his dark hair,dark thick eyebrow,and guyliner makes his eyes AHHHHH AHHHHH AHHHHHH!! LOL!! I can say that too!!
        I think I remembered in 1 of the interview ,His mom said that she’s freaking out when saw Adam’s hair and called her friend who is a hair dresser to fix his son’s hair ASAP!! LOL!!
        I did that once.The colour is brighter than I thought,my whole family shocked and I have to pay my relatives a visit few day later.You should she how they looked at me!!They are conservative and seriously I was like dying slowly.They stared me to death!! Urgh!!Awww to myself!! 🙁

        • AdamAddict you have to come to the GLAMBS meeting when Adam is on tour, I think all the GLAMBS will want to meet you in person, you are such good companny, but now I am the one getting a bit worried with those AAAAHHHHH, I think I better send a message to Adam and tell him to come to London first, I promise I will look after soooooooo well.

    • thanks AA for vid, Oh, when he says he didnt have many friends to begin with?? Doesnt
      your heart just break?? But look at him now, who needs those not friends to begin with.
      Adam you rock baby! Look at you now……… I would have love to have seen his orange colored
      hair.

    • Thanks! I actually have great barricade pics of him and shots of my auto’d pics too! He was really sweet with everyone, so amazing! 😉

  12. I have been setting my alarm every 15 minutes but sometimes have to wait up to 20 minutes before the X appears again. I too am clicking quickly several times and am getting in 2 or 3 votes but never 5-8 like out friend Adam Addict! Not sure how you do that – you’re younger I guess and therefore have more nimble fingers! HA!

    Adam is 1525 votes ahead!! VOTE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Jane
    (Glamb #20)

    • AdamAddict says:

      You set your alarm clock??!! Bravo!! I didn’t but I kept looking at time!! Hee hee! There’s one time I got lots in but just now, my finger cramp so only 3 in!Oops!! 🙂 Yes, we can do this,DO NOT STOP,DO NOT GIVE UP!! Clay didn’t give up & so do we!! Come on,Glambs! Save the superstar,save the world! Hahaha!! He is our hero!! 🙂

  13. Hola a todos!!, insisto…no se escribir inglés!!!,aunque seria más divertido para ustedes!!. Acabo de llegar del trabajo y me puse a votar….and press the + several times (like Silvana said!!) y me contabilizaron 4 votos (dont lie!!).
    Silvana, soy de Buenos Aires y vos?, and Adamaddict…..i dont like the TANGO!!!!!!!!!!!!( pero me encantaría bailar con Adam!!!)
    “Argentinian kisses”!!!!!!!!!!!, y me alegra haber podido ayudar!

    • AdamAddict says:

      SILVANAAAA!!! All I understand is “like Silvana said,don’t lie,AdamAddict…I don’t like tango!” Wow, I’m pretty good! Hahaha,in her last post, I don’t have a clue!! Welcome Marisa!! Glad to have you! And thanks for the info! It helped a lot! 🙂

  14. Did the ‘connect-disconnect’ thing and the last 15 minutes, I managed to get 37 votes. Try again Jane416?

    • Thanks, lia09 – I have 3 windows open and am voting on each but then it doesn’t let me in again or vote a bunch of times. There are still 1626 votes separating Adam from the other guy.

  15. Ha,ha,gracias por la bienvenida!! y otra cosa: a veces NO es necesario esperar 15 Minutes, intenten a cada rato que a veces hay suerte!!!

    • AdamAddict says:

      I think she said “thank you for telling,now I don’t have to wait for 15 mins!” Silvana,is it true?? Gosh, I love it. I think I can learn new language here. It’s awesome!! 🙂

      • Silvana/Argentina says:

        Yes, Emili, she said that’s not necessary to wait 15 minutes. You can learn another language here, and i will go crazy chasing al my posts for the answers and now hers. I’m to old for this HAHAHAHAHAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
        YOU NEVER GO TO SLEEP????????????????????
        Love,
        Silvana

      • Silvana/Argentina says:

        Emili,
        she is thnking everyone for the welcome.

    • Silvana/Argentina says:

      Marisa,
      creo que copiaste el mismo post que dejaste en otro lado. Te lo contesté allá….creo. me van a volver loca con tantos post…no llego a seguirte y traducirle a las otras chicas.

  16. Ja,Ja, disculpá Silvana, aprecio tu esfuerzo!, afortunadamente me gusta mas leer lo que ustedes escriben que escribir yo!!!

  17. AdamAddict says:

    Silvana,Marisa, seriously??Here try this, sekarang dah pukul 6:20am,aku dah mengantuk giler dan sangat penat,aku nak tidur! LOL!! Ok, I said, now it’s 6:20 am, I’m so sleepy and very tired,I wanna sleep! LOL still LOL!!Hahaha!!

    Ok, guys seriously,This all I can do today,I’ll continue tomorrow! But whatever we doing today seems work.Thank you so much Marisa for that important info,I can see a bit different here.And TQ Lorrin for posting that link to other sites and other Glambs,you know what you did for our darling Adam! I know what I did and I’m so proud of myself being Adam’s fan. But I need to go to bed! Even vampire need to rest.The sun almost rising, this vampire need to go lay in her pink coffin. I let my fellow Dracula (Cindy) to take over (if she’s not busy taking care of his 4 yr old son) So,you guys keep voting! I need to hear good news tomorrow,that it’s close and Adam win!! Oh,please end it already! I sat too long, I hope I don’t get hemorrhoids because of this! LOL! I blame Clay for that if that happens!! ~knock on wood~ Good night!

    • You are hilarious, Adam Addict!!!!! Have a good night’s sleep – we will keep a watch on the Adam vs. “the other guy” competition and you will see in the morning that we made sure that our Adam got the votes that he needed to win. As Lorrin would probably say, “May the Starlight angels bless you!” Good night!

  18. Hi! Brandy, I will also be going to the Reading PA show tomorrow! Can’t believe it’s almost here after waiting so long! I was also at the Atlantic City, and it was so much fun! Didn’t get to see Adam after that show, so I’m hoping for tomorrow….Anyway, Brandy, maybe we’ll run into each other in Reading. I plan to get there in the early afternoon. Have a great time! And Alicia, thanks so much for the great pictures, they were some of the best I’ve seen!

  19. Go to sleep girls, we stay in the opposite polo of the world , now is 8 and half pm and we can keep voting all the night!!! ( creo que van a entender mas mi español que mi pobre inglés, parezco Tarzán o mas bien su mono…!!!). Sweet dreams!.

    • Silvana/Argentina says:

      Marisa,
      se entiende muy bien… Así me evito traducir. GRACIAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Marisa is worried that you won’t understand her “poor” English. I told her that you will understand it.
      It will be easier for me, don’t have to translate. She can read English, perfectly, she thinks she has a problem writting it. I think not…….

      Love, Silvana

      • AdamAddict says:

        Marisa,
        Don’t worry about your english,have you seen Lisette post? LOL! My english is not that good either!Don’t worry about your spelling or your grammar.It’s not important.This is not english test.Don’t worry about it. Somehow we just understand no matter how poor your english are.Believe me on that one. 🙂

    • Marisa, hang in there – your English is just fine, I read it very well, and your posts are very fun to read! I’m sure all your voting is putting Adam out in front. Thank you….keep posting and keep on voting! Love from California!

    HI ALL YOU FELLOW GLAMBS!!!

    I AM WRITING FROM AN AIRPORT HOTEL IN MILWAUKEE HAVING BEEN DROPPED OFF BY OUR JEANETTE. WE HAD AN AWESOME TIME, 15 TO 20 OF US IN ALL, WHO MET AT A RESTAURANT AND PARTIED HARDY THEN WENT TO THE GRAND RAPIDS CONCERT! WONDERFUL AS USUAL! WE LEFT EARLY AND GOT UP TO THE FRONT OF THE BARRICADE, AND GUESS WHO CAME OUT FIRST!! YES, OUR DIVINE MAN! JEANETTE HAS LOADS TO TELL YOU BUT LET’S JUST SAY WE ALL ‘ENJOYED ADAM’… NOW I MUST FLY BACK TO SEATTLE AND DRIVE TO VANCOUVER CANADA, AAAAH, THE THINGS WE DO FOR LOVE, EH?

    FROM TERRY

    • Oh, Terry….I simply cannot WAIT for your full review! And thank you SO much for your great email, I felt like I had been sent a message from the king’s entourage and special messenger, YOU….get rested up, and then WRITE! Love you so much!

      • Terry, it was awesome hearing from you! Can’t wait to hear your full review once you have rested up. Hugs and mwah

  21. linlivalex says:

    Ok–I have been clicking only once and I keep getting 5 or 6 votes each time so I’ll keep doing it! The only problem is that it seems to take longer than 15 to get the x sometimes. I was at the Chicago concert too and sat in the first row. I have some AWESOME pictures (including the on with the pink boa and some great ones of our Adam at the signing barracades), but I dont know how to get them on here. If someone could let me know, I’d love for all of you to be able to share his godliness!!!!!

  22. Here’s an article that highlights something we already know: Adam has a very generous and inclusive spirit and regularly Tweets about other artists so that they can be discovered and enjoyed by Adam’s followers and fans. Yep – that’s our Adam! Kind and generous and thoughtful! It’s just another illustration of why we all love him so!

    We need to vote faster girls, we need more voters. Last time I voted – about 10 minutes ago – now don’t freak out, but there were only 740 votes between the gorgeous sexy Adam and that other thing. Help we are drowning, and that Clay person, he is cheating for sure, no one would vote for him, he’s either doing it himself or paying people to do it for him. Creep.

  26. Eva Poliszczuk says:

    The one with Allison and Adam….so cute!!! and the 5th one down of Adam,omg,that snarl he has going on,good lord!!

  27. admlmbrtrckz says:

    HOW DID U GET ADAMS AUTOGRAPH???? HE DIDNT SIGN STUFF AT THE CONCERTS I WENT 2!!!!

    • I had a good feeling that he would come out after the Chicago show, especially since they had the day off the next day. We lucked out that night, he started walking out and everyone went crazy, but still collect. I brought a pic of him I printed out from another fan’s awesome pics, hoping to have him sign it. I even brought my own silver marker, in case(silly I know). He was gracious enough to use my marker, instead of the black one in his hand. He was so kind. I am very grateful! 🙂

      I do have a pic of my auto’d pics on my photobucket gallery. I’m a silly girl, I know. But now I have something to frame! Yay! 🙂

  28. Oh, Alicia,
    Thank you SO much for the photos and write-up. Here I am sitting at my computer again {as I have the whole concert tour} after a day of teaching 3rd graders! What keeps me coming back ? I can’t figure it out so I won’t even try. All I know is that i have never felt so excited by any entertainer/singer/perforformer in my whole life –before Adam!
    Lorraine glamb# 440

    • Bravo to you Lorraine, third graders!! I dealt mainly with 11 to 18 years olds in my long teaching career but the little ones, though so cute , were the most difficult for me!! Let Adam lift your spirits after a long day.

  29. Thank you Lorraine!
