    Lorne Michetti @elgrancuchillo
    @QueenWillRock @adamlambert My son’s first rock concert tonight. He’s 8 and been listening to our old Queen cassettes for yrs#queenwillrock

  8. retjenny says:

    We just watched a Bad Company with Paul Rodgers concert on Palladia TV. He is good, but totally different from Adam. Reminds me a little of Bruce Springsteen.

  9. luval says:

    haha AL, rub it in.

  10. ultimathule says:
    (Edmonton pics – some great ones)

  11. madnessinmotion says:

    I love that I can come home from work and stop by here and immediately know what’s going on tonight and what time and where to look for the goodies. Thanks, AL and everyone else who participates here. Smile

  12. Miss Chaos says:

    Thanks for the thread again. Al and everyone. I am happy I found my earphones, so I dont have to disturb my husband and he can watch TV, you just cant get good sound from the computer without turning it up high, and the earphones make the sound a lot better.
    So another concert, lets go!!!!!
    Does anyone wonder whats in the bottle he so nicely spews in the air? Water? Probably!

  13. angelowal says:

    Really great interview about Queenbert in Calgary on Global TV:

  14. luval says:

    I saw that globalnews interview on twitter and I really didn’t like it. That girl did not know any history on Adam. She said he came from a reality show and nothing about his 20year past in the business. And this silly thing about the two types of fans, some of which are embarrassed about being there? What was that all about? She also brought up how shocking it was that that there are still seats available. No…did not like most of this interview. The guy was great, though.

  15. Tothebeat says:

    Wow, angelowal, incredible support for Adam from the woman total Glambert on that show.

    We just returned from some time in S.Carolina, and there is so much to catch up on! Heartfelt congrats to you, Eywflyer, on your wonderful news – can’t imagine what you must be feeling. LOL to Mils as the purple(not-so-lazy) susan Laugh …probably missed about twelve more tidbits that I hope to catch up with as I read.
    Not to mention the vids! Can’t possibly see everything by the time our show comes around next week, but maybe that’s best, as it would be fun to be surprised. Oh, heck no, who am I kidding, just gonna go for as much as I can cram in.
    So excited! Heart Heart

  16. Tothebeat says:

    Yeah, luval, didn’t think about her comments that way…is it true even stubhub has only 49 more tickets? Think I read that on the twitter feed above.

  17. firstimerob says:

    WoW pretty nice….Happy Spike is there.

    Thanks AL and eywflyer for the fantastic threads, mlg for the gorgeous posters, and everyone here for bringing all of the treats and goodies. This tour has been amazing so far, and I’m looking forward to hearing about another barn-stormer tonight.

    I’ve been following people’s gobsmacked reactions and the fantastic reviews and seeing the amazing pics that people are sharing, but I’ve scarcely had time to view very many videos. Maybe that’s for the best, since it won’t spoil me for my first show in San Jose – coming up in just 5 DAYS!!

    AL – I do have one request. Is there a central place where you could post this spreadsheet, so that we can easily track whether venues are sold out, % of seats sold, how many they seat, etc.? I find this information really interesting about how the different venues are doing and the revenue generated. Thanks! You da best!!

    (I don’t know for sure who to credit for the spreadsheet, but @mmadamimadamm has tweeted it out a couple of times so it might be her work.)

  21. ultimathule says:

    RT @Byroncooke: If you know what “WWFM” stands for …then you’re one of my people haha I’m playing it next on @FoxFM #Glamberts #Represent

  22. riskylady says:

    luval, I thought she was very very supportive of Adam, saying what a wonderful performer he is and how no one else but him could front Queen. She’s probably talking about people who’ve talked to her station about that meme that people from reality shows have no rock cred – that controversy is alive and well on YouTube too, but I bet like she says, and like from the other shows, there will be a lot of very surprised people tonight.

  23. Kiwi says:

    I thought the woman on the news interview was very complimentary about Adam fronting Queen (and Adam in general come to that) She is a radio announcer and was quoting what callers to the radio show had been saying about being a Queen fan and feeling “guilty” about going to see an ex-idol fronting their rock band. I didn’t agree with her that younger concert goers won’t know the Queen songs…I can’t imagine anyone who hasn’t heard them played at some time. There’s nothing funnier than hearing my 5 year old grandson singing “Fat Bottom Girls”. Priceless! It’s funny that we can hear the same thing and get a different vibe. That’s great, how it should be.

  24. angelowal says:

    Luval Did we view the same global TV interview? I found the Q107 host was so very positive and complimentary about Adam and is obviously a fan. Her comments about the fans’ perspectives reflected the views expressed by callers on her radio show and not her own, and she did say that it would be the concert of the year – pretty great, IMO Smile

  25. ultimathule says:
  26. angelowal says:

    Kiwi I agree that the kids today do know many of those iconic Queen songs. Even my 6 year-old grand-daughter loves their music and loves “Fweddie” and her favourite songs are “Under Pressure” and “Those Were The Days of Our Lives” – and she knows all the lyrics!

  29. luval says:

    haha everyone! Just goes to show we can hear the same interview and each get a different opinion out of it! She did get better near the end but IMO only because the guy was challenging her.

    I listened again and it just seemed like a back door praise for him. Maybe I need to clean out my ears. Grin

  30. Kiwi says:

    My son is a huge Queen fan but turned me down flat when I asked him to see the show in Australia with me (at my expense!) He was one who didn’t want to see Queen fronted by an ex-idol. Very odd to me, as he liked Adam on idol…just not with Queen! A couple of days later he got back to me asking if I’d found someone because he would go. I was pleased to tell him, sorry, too late. Naughty of me to be pleased but don’t you diss ADAM!!!!!

  31. ultimathule says:

    Hahaha, Kiwi – justice is best served cold – way to go!

  32. Miss Chaos says:

    Awww, Kiwi, take your son, I wish my son or daughter was interested in things I like, you wont regret it!

  33. ultimathule says:

    IslandGirl @islandgirljams
    Maaaaaaybe I might stream a song or two ok? Let’s see

  34. milwlovesadam says:

    Luval, I think you and I heard it the same way.

    Pass the QTips..

  35. Miss Chaos says:

    Is IslandGirl teasing us?Frown

  36. ultimathule says:
  37. Kiwi says:

    Too late now,Miss Chaos, no tickets left in Melbourne. And the flights were on special at the time, now they’re 3 times the price. I’m going with a friend instead.

  38. ultimathule says:

    Tyra @MsNeonTyra
    Guess the show has been held by 20 minutes. Good thing since there was a bottleneck of people trying to get in. #yyc

    Phat*ss Biatch @ladistardust
    “@islandgirljams: Can’t log in Big Frown(” Oops, looks like stream might be blocked Frown. That happened to me in Cape Town & JHB with Adam’s shows.

    @Klddsml @islandgirljams Some venues do that automatically as most performers don’t allow any unauthorised recording/broadcasting.

    Aussie Queens @AussieQueens
    @Klddsml @ladistardust @islandgirljams they may have jammed ur account try a totally new account with another phone if a mate has one

    Allie @Silliegirl
    wow… will there even be Calgary videos?

  48. cwm says:

    While we wait, here is another spreadsheet that might be very helpful that could be posted somewhere central and easy to find – a listing of all of the videos posted for each concert. Thanks AL!

    The different shows are listed on the tabs across the top. This one comes courtesy of @mmyy9.
