Adam Lambert is going on tour, finally! His “Glam Nation” extravaganza kicks off on June 4 in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania and he’s going to be joined by fellow American Idol alumna powerhouse Allison Iraheta and guitarist Orianthi. The show wraps up on September 18 in St. Petersburg, Florida, with pit stops all over the country in between.
What can we expect from the Glambert experience? The man answered, “I hope the audience will be able to escape for a few hours and fall into a world full of glam, drama and excitement … And I would love everyone to come away with a new appreciation for the music on my album.”
He’s already shared the stage with Iraheta and has nothing but love for her, “I am such a fan of Allison’s music and I am so excited for her to perform it live in front of an audience. We have such a great brother-and-sister energy, having shared the stage both on ‘American Idol’ and on the tour [last] summer. She is pure rock and roll.”
Lambert’s also let on that the shows are going to be very theatrical in nature and that he wants his costumes to be very “cutting edge.” Er, obviously. “I hope to use some special-effects lighting,” Lambert says. “The Glam Nation tour is going to be very theatrical. People won’t be let down in the glam department; it’ll definitely be something to look at as well as listen to.”
