10-10-10 happens once in a lifetime. According to Chinese superstition, this rare date is a lucky alignment of numbers fortuitous for celebrating special occasions like weddings and baptisms. What better way than to celebrate October 10, 2010 with American Idol Season 8 runner-up Adam Lambert?
When Adam set foot on the American Idol stage, he stood out for his high-octane vocals, sexy glamrock outfits, trademark eyeliner and electrifying stage presence. The 28-year-old contestant from San Diego, California zoomed his way to the finals, finishing 1st runner-up behind American Idol Season 8 winner Kris Allen.
After entering the recording world via his debut album For Your Entertainment, Adam is raring to spread his glammed up music and soaring vocals to the world. Manila concertgoers are in for a musical treat when The Glam Nation Tour: Adam Lambert Live in Manila hits Philippine shores on October 10, 2010, 8 pm at the SM Mall Of Asia Concert Grounds.
The producers, BlueDream Entertainment led by Senior Vice President and Managing Director Christian Andoy, promise to "turn Manila into a sizzling concert party no one will ever forget."
"I'm gonna be a lumpia monster!" exclaimed Adam on a radio interview, talking excitedly about his upcoming visit to the Philippines. The singer shared that at his former high school in San Diego, California, he had a lot of Filipino friends and would often hang out at their houses, eating Pinoy delicacies like pancit. Adam added that he is eager to try even more Pinoy dishes when he visits the Philippines this October.
After high school, Adam decided to go full force with his music career, scoring a role as an understudy for the Broadway musical Wicked. He also formed a rock band called Citizen Vein, but it wasn't till he joined American Idol Season 8 that his career started to soar. Wowing the crowd week after week with his own versions of classics like Led Zepplin's "Whole Lotta Love" and Tears For Fears "Mad World" (which merited a standing ovation from hard-to-please American Idol judge Simon Cowell) the singer proved that he is a musical force that ought to be noticed.
Yet despite all his pomp and pageantry, Adam has shown his versatility by singing soft ballads like "Whataya Want For Me" or the party-friendly "If I Had You." This has kept his fans--who affectionately call themselves "Glamberts"--at the edge of their seats and asking for more.
Another feather recently added to the glam rock vocalist's musical cap was when Adam was chosen to be a mentor to the American Idol Season 9 finalists, making him the first ever AI alumnus to accomplish this feat.
It's hard to believe that less than two years ago Adam Lambert was just a struggling singer in Los Angeles waiting for his big break.
Watch Adam Lambert live when he performs on October 10, 2010 at the SM Mall Of Asia Concert grounds at 8 pm.
