In the middle of everything last weekend, I had a passing notion that someone had tweeted that Adam Lambert was doing a concert in Palm Springs at the end of February. Saturday morning after my workout I sat down at the computer to check that out. Found the link. Checked out prices. Hmm..not bad. It’s a 2.5 hour drive, but I can do that! Sat night, Feb 27th. Check calendar – SportsBoy is with his dad that weekend. Excellent (he wouldn’t want to go anyway, but I needed it to be *cheap*). Check my bank account, yep, that’s my tax refund hitting the night before. I can do this! Just as I start clicking in to purchase a ticket, I get a text from my Adam-loving buddy from the American Idol concert “Hey, I’m going to see Adam on 2/27. Wanna go?” Talk about planets aligning!! So now I have a banzai run driving buddy for the event, two more friends are going out early Saturday & having dinner. Just found out today that a couple of other (very nice, normal) people I’ve met on one of the fan sites are flying out too and will be part of the pre-concert fun. Fantastic!
No sharing the stage with anyone else. Just a concert in an intimate (less than 4000 seats) venue by Adam for his fans. Hello – a ray of musical sunshine breaking through the clouds of January mourning. Seems like he was a pretty big ray of sunshine last year too eh?
I hear there’s another season of that show again…you know the one that is keeping Glee off my tv…what’s it called again? Oh yeah Faux American Idol – because there IS no American Idol after Adam 🙂
