      ***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.

There is some information in this article that I don't think we've heard before.  Like this (the part about the keyboard recordings as a practice tape):

“So the challenge to make it my own was to stop listening to the recordings and really listen to the words and the notes.

“I had the band’s pianist record me the songs so I had something to rehearse to and I just started working on it.

And I'm not sure which performance Adam is referring to here--would this be the New Years Eve show in the UK?  I've never heard it called "Hogmanay"  :blink:

The real turning point, at least in this country, was his televised performance on live TV at Hogmanay 2014. It was such a barnstorming show that the next day, the most Googled term in the UK was “Adam Lambert”.

Adam said: “I’m not a household name in the UK, but the next day I definitely came closer to being one. It was very exciting and a very triumphant night for us.

Yay! Congrats to @Ivaa, @foxeylady, @Welsh Fleur, @Guanche for getting their tickets! :)

I see Denmark and Norway on the tour date list. Any chance of Helsinki getting there? ;)

Cool!!  Another never-ending tour  :lol:

I see The Darkness is also headlining.  Roger and Rufus can get together after the show  ;)

Man, that would be an awesome gig!!

Justin Hawkins from The Darkness wrote "Music Again" from Adam's first album. It has a great guitar riff in it. It would be a great full circle moment if Adam sang Music Again, The Darkness and Queen did the backup music and Brian did the guitar riffs and Rufus played the drums.

Oooh, that's right!  I'd forgotten about that!!  Thanks for the reminder @sweetygirly  :)  That would be AWESOME if they played it live!!

But Justin played that wicked guitar riff on the album, so he should be the one to play it live.

ADAM'S NAME ON THE PLANEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE  :D 

I saw that!!!  And I do believe that is their own personal plane.  Not just some rental/lease with temporary lettering.  But their very own plane with PERMANENT lettering  :D  :wub:

I leave Friday for Germany.  Spending a few days in Augsburg and Munich before heading up to Berlin for the show on June 19th.  I don't know what kind of internet access I'll have, or whether some sites are geo-blocked.   So if you don't see me here for a while, that's why.

I'm starting to get really excited about the show--and my first overseas trip!!

The way to get around being geo-blocked is to get a virtual private network. It uses servers from around the world that you can connect to so that the site you are connecting to thinks that you are located in that country or hopefully close enough that you can get programming from that country. I watched X-Factor Australia live and after it aired by logging onto the VPN server in Australia so the X-Factor website thought I was located in Australia. If you find a VPN with a lot of servers around the world you should be able to connect to the geo-blocked sites. Make sure you connect before the concert starts and stay connected so you don't miss the beginning.

Brian said in an interview that Adam had tried out for the Queen live theater show WWRY but they never saw him at auditions. It is likely that Brian and Roger had people at the auditions who were only sending through to them people they thought were talented enough to make the show. How did they miss  Adam? Brian Justin Crum, who appeared on AGT and who had the same singing teacher as Adam, got into the show WWRY. Adam and Brian know each other. Brian is an incredible singer and performer. He did not get signed by a label after AGT. I think that is because he is a gay man who is nice looking who has a great singing voice and he is too similar to Adam and Simon Cowell didn't know what to do with him musically. Unfortunately, Brian sang songs that were too similar to each other on AGT so he  did not show versatility like Adam did. Check him out on Youtube.

I have posted several times that Brian and Roger must have seen a lot of talented singers and performers at the auditions for WWRY and they never found someone they thought could front Queen. I just recently heard Brian say that. I also posted very early that Adam was a "gift from God" to Queen and then Brian started saying that. I think I have a psychic connection with Brian.

The most recent tour has not been to Asia yet.I am not sure if it has been to Australia. It is unusual for them not to take the tour to Asia. Maybe they weren't able to book arenas close enough in time to make it financially worthwhile. I expect it to go to Asia in the near future. It will have to wait until Adam puts out his new music. I think as soon as he finishes his promos for his new album, they will go to Asia. After the Vegas residency, I expect the demand for another US tour will be there and there will be at least one more North America tour as long as everyone stays healthy.
