Adam Lambert’s plan for world domination is going perfectly to schedule—as the 33-year-old continues to conquer the globe, one continent at a time.
North America, Europe, Asia and Australia have already been ticked off the list, as Lambert and Queen wow the crowds with their Don’t Stop Them Now tour, performing to packed audiences in sold out arenas.
The band has moved on to Brazil now, and if Wednesday’s Sao Paulo concert is anything to go by, there’s going to be one hell of a lot more Glamberts throughout South America by the time Lambert’s finished performing.
Lambert and Queen ROCKED the joint with their first performance together of Adam’s last hit, Ghost Town—and the singer was at his absolutely fabulous glam rock best as he strutted around the stage, vocals soaring.
The live performance was drastically different to the original arrangement, with head banging rock riffs replacing deep house grooves—but it was every bit as amazing—you can watch video right here on Popdust.
Not surprisingly, critics have been raving about the tour, with review after review praising Lambert’s showmanship and vocal talents.
The band has now moved on to Rio de Janeiro, where they will be performing tonight as part of the Rock in Rio Festival—then on to Porto Alegre, in time for a performance Monday night.
After Brazil comes Argentina, followed by Chile, where they will end the tour with a final performance in Santiago on September 30.
In addition to being a critical success, the tour has also scored high when it comes to the financial side—the North American leg of the tour, which ran from 19th June to 28th last year, grossed a cool $37 million, placing it number 35 in the top 100 worldwide tours of 2014.
Meanwhile, despite his grueling tour schedule, Lambert still manages to schedule in time to work on his solo career—he released his third album, The Original High, back in June—it was met with rave reviews and debuted on the Billboard 200 at number 3, selling 42,000 copies in its first week alone.
All hail Adam Lambert—the undisputed King of Glam Rock (and probably the hands down nicest guy in the business)
