      ***HERE is how to access PRESALE CODES, VIP* and Meet and Greet* opportunities.***   01/30/2017

      Before getting down to the business of access to presale codes, etc. please take note:   ***Please be advised that any member publicly posting actual presale codes anywhere on the forum (and possibly elsewhere!) or reportedly through private messages, will be banned from membership here on AO! NO EXCEPTIONS!   Our site here at adamofficial.com (aka AO) is Adam's official record label site, not his official fan club, and is not the place to find presale codes, nor are they provided through the official newsletter.   Presale codes are provided to paid members of Adam's official fan club one to several hours before the presale begins. If you are a paid member you can find the presale code in your dashboard at that site.
      The official fan club, Adam Lambert Fans, can be found here: http://www.adamlambertfans.com
      You must pay a fee to join. I believe the minimum fee is $9.99.
      Any other entity, website, or contact person on Twitter, email, etc. claiming to be representing Adam's official fan club and collecting payments other than directly at the above website is BOGUS, NOT LEGITIMATE!   Any questions you may have concerning any aspect of the fan club, including presale codes, VIP* tickets, Meet and Greet* opportunities, should only be addressed to the fan club moderators, DearBecky and addictedtoadam here on AO in the Adam Lambert Fan Club subforum. Please check to see if your question has already been posted in an existing thread there before posting a new topic. Please do not post questions concerning these subjects anywhere else on the forum. You can find the fan club subforum listed on the main forums page directly under Tour Talk.   The direct link is:
      http://forum.adamofficial.com/forum/30-adam-lambert-fan-club/   Fan club moderators, please correct me on anything I've posted that you find to be unclear or incorrect, through a PM. Thanks.   *Meet and Greet and VIP opportunities may or may not be offered.

I'm not sure about this.  It sounds like a monumental screw-up, but perhaps nothing more.  The article did say the chorus had sung at Padres games many times before.

 

That part about wanting them to purchase tickets:  I've heard the same thing many times before, in all sports, across the board.  Major league sports tries to wring every dollar they can from the fans.

 

Bottom line:  given the current climate in the US, someone may be trying to make this more of a story than it is.  Sells papers.

I hope it was an honest slip up.  It's making national news.  I've seen no drama in the reporting, but it will be looked into as a possible hate crime.  The company hired to be in charge of Nat'l anthem has had their contract terminated by the Padres.  If this was someone's way of displaying their homophobia and hate, then it cannot be swept under the rug.  It would just open the the door to more of the same.

I agree, no drama. They didn't need to deal with it somehow. On the other hand, how much we are to believe the press etc.?!

Exactly, how much are we to believe the press?, also I'm thinking that professional ball teams have a lot of power and money to 'make things go away'.   I'll pretend to believe them until it happens a 2nd time.

I think we'll see more and more of that Twyla.  Maybe there is a bit of good that can come from the Pulse massacre.  The tragedy has put a face on the LGBTQ community.  Some are waking up to the fact that the victims were people, with friends and families who are grieving for them, and with everyday lives just like the rest of the city.

UPDATE:  :)

 

 

JUST IN: Pres. Obama designates Stonewall National Monument in New York City as the first national monument honoring LGBT rights in the US.

 

 

 

Another event is in the making,

 

Stonewall: the birthplace of a movement, and soon a national monument for equality. http://hrc.io/24wqWaS  #ThanksObama

 

In N.Y., White House poised to create first monument to gay rights struggle
 
(some highlights from the Washington Post article.)
Barring a last-minute complication — ... — Obama is prepared to designate the area part of the National Park Service as soon as next month, which commemorates gay pride.
 
The decision to recognize a critical moment in the fight for gay rights, at a time when politicians in several states are moving to strip away legal protections for transgender, gay, lesbian and bisexual residents, enjoys considerable support within the administration.
 
... late last month, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) signed legislation, backed by New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) and several state lawmakers, that would allow the city to transfer ownership of Christopher Park to the federal government should it become designated as a monument. That patch of green, spanning less than two-tenths of an acre, lies opposite the Stonewall Inn.
