Adam Lambert concerts selling out




“Adam Lambert sold out as fast as the ticketing system would allow,” said Ric Waldman, the center’s director of programming and audience development. “Because people were slamming the website, everything slowed down, so it took about 90 minutes to catch up and sell out. We probably would have sold out in minutes if we had (more expansive Web services). We are in the process of updating the system to better handle these huge-demand sales when literally thousands of people are trying to buy tickets at one time.

“We could have probably sold three more shows for Adam Lambert if we had been able to (book) them,” Waldman said of the flamboyant showman, who also sold out a 2010 Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom show in three minutes.

Adam Lambert's net worth




First of all, just being a Top 10 finalist on American Idol guarantees income from union contract appearance fees that bring in $1,000 to $2,000 a week. That's because the competition tunes they sing on the show are picked up by iTunes and the songs they sing in the opening number on the results show are covered by AFTRA rules.

In addition, the Top 10 go out on a national tour that is steadily increasing in revenue and last year Randy Jackson revealed the number is up to about $250,000 - each.

Winning American Idol guarantees a million dollar recording contract when endorsements and advances are figured in. Record sales above that bring in even more cash.

But Adam Lambert didn't win American Idol.

No worries. According to The New York Times, "the winner is not the only contestant who earns after the show. Last year the runner-up — Adam Lambert, whose first-week album sales were more than double those of Kris Allen — earned $300,000 in advance royalties for his first album, a $75,000 merchandising contract and $50,000 in fees from Disney World for the Idol Experience attraction."

OK... so far that's $425K, PLUS the estimated $250K for the tour... that means that by being the runner up on Idol Adam Lambert earned an estimated $675,000 bucks!

This past year since AI ended Adam has enjoyed spectacular record sales and he has launched his first "GlamNation" tour that's been steadily adding dates and causing other tracks on the album to pick up steam and add to his revenue stream.

So what's the total?

According to Celebrity Net Worth, the current estimate of Adam's wealth is... $5 Million Bucks!

Not bad for a "loser"

Adam Lambert tour announced- 'The Glam Nation Tour'




Brace yourselves, Adam Lambert fans: the former American Idol finalist has announced that his first North American tour will be called 'Glam Nation'. The opening acts for the show with be Orianthi, and Allison Iraheta.

Lambert took to Twitter to make the announcement. He writes: "The Glam Nation Tour dates will be announced soon! For those who didn't know, my opening acts are Orianthi and Allison Iraheta!!!"

Adam Lambert told Ryan Seacrest in an interview after his performance on American Idol: "I am working on it right now. I am actually about to leave on Sunday for three weeks to go over to the U.K. I go over there. My album is coming out, I'm so excited to do some TV shows and promo out there. All over Europe, it has been a really good response. Then I come back, and right away I start rehearsals for my first North American tour. " Lambert says of his idea for the shows: "I want it to be atmospheric. I want it to feel like you are somewhere else. I want it to transport people. I can tell you right now that it is going to be called Glam Nation. And it is going to be very glittery and sparkly, but it is going to have that mystery and the mood and the sexy and the celebration. I think the fans are going to be in for a real treat."

How excited are you for this tour, and what do you think of the opening acts?

Big week for Jason Castro and Adam Lambert




This week proves that you don’t have to win American Idol to strike it rich. Two former finalists, Jason Castro and Adam Lambert are shaking things up this week and making headlines in a really big way.

Jason Castro has fans buzzing with anticipation over the release of his first album set to hit store shelves tomorrow. The new CD has been in the works for quite some time, and Castro promises that fans won’t be disappointed. The new self-titled CD will include 14 songs for the deluxe on-line version and 8 songs for the standard version that will be available in stores beginning on Tuesday, April 13th. The songs on the deluxe version include: Let’s Just Fall In Love, This Heart of Mine, That’s What I’m Here For, Heart of Stone, If I Were You, You Can Always Come Home, Love Uncompromised, Closer, All Wrapped Up, It Matters To Me, Hallelujah, Let’s Just Fall In Love Again (acoustic version), Sweet Medicine and Over The Rainbow. The deluxe version can be ordered by clicking on jasoncastromusic.com. To promote the big release, Jason Castro announced that he will make an appearance and perform on The Ellen Degeneres Show on April 22nd. This past American Idol finalist certainly has a lot going on in the next two weeks, and his fans couldn’t be any happier about it.

The second American Idol former finalist making headlines this week is, of course, Adam Lambert. He will both mentor the finalists during Tuesday’s performance show and will sing a song from For Your Entertainment during the Wednesday's results show. The theme this week is Elvis songs, and to get inspiration, all of the finalists took a quick trip to Las Vegas to take in the Elvis-inspired Cirque du Soleil’s Viva Vegas production at the new and stunning Aria Hotel and Hotel, located right on the strip. The drama will certainly be heightened this week as the remaining finalists face a double elimination caused by last weeks’ judges save of Michael Lynche. It should be a great week for Adam Lambert and American Idol fans across the country.
