Glam Nation: Hampton

Adam unusually gets up onto his feet during Aftermath and plays with Tommy like a doll, stroking his hair during MA. Orianthi gets an intro before Adam urges everyone to kiss each other as part of a social experiment at the start of IIHY. We have a backbending floor-writhing TCB encore.

Glam Nation: Cohasset

Second concert in the revolving ring. Shaved side of head.

Saturday, 21 August 2010

Wednesday, 18 August 2010

Glam Nation: Providence

The infamous tongue-diving, back-bending and floor-writhing in a wild TCB. Also long tongue-diving smooches with Tommy during both Fever and IIHY where there is much flirting.

I did say that I was going to get round to sorting out all the playlists for the dates that I missed so this the start. I'll be moving them back into chronological order in the blog soon after posting. I'm afraid I won't be able to comment, just make occasional notes. Hope it's better than nothing!

Debut of 20th Century Boy

Keeping You Entertained

I thought I'd let you know this time that I'll be away for a few days so there won't be any new posts until I get back on the weekend. In the meantime, check out the random post of the day and other favourites in the sidebar. I'll also leave you with a playlist of my best edits so far. Enjoy!

San Francisco II WLL

Here's my latest video edit which a few of you requested. This San Francisco WLL starts off with Adam looking both fierce and pouty and appearing to move in slow motion to the first few acoustic chords. Turning his back to the crowd, he's teasing us, not wanting to give anything away until he's satisfied with the energy and decibel levels behind him. This happens after a few lapdancer gyrations. The start is slinky, the voice velvety as he settles down on his perch. His legs are so wide open that the whole audience is able to feel nestled between them and we know where all things lead where Adam's concerned. This version is comparatively smiley as Adam alternates between Mr. Dominator and Mr. Sweet. It's the stuff of many a romantic daydream as he gently serenades 'I'll give it to you, my love'. Monte switches guitars for the instrumental break, during which Adam once again turns his back to us, his movements very suggestive of something mildly obscene. His inclination towards the mischievous but subtly subversive is what initially hooked me during RoF and is one of the things I love most about him.

We have an exciting build as Adam's voice ascends and impossibly keeps ascending to the first of many crescendoes followed by a release. It turns into a version that fully rocks out, well supported by the instrumentals and heavy guitars. We have a very long pause as Adam takes his time to survey the crowd, soaking up the energy. He transforms from sexy to sweet as he nods and smiles to the audience in acknowledgement - a move hearkening back to the AI days. The ending is suitably and marvellously grand thanks to Longineu's drums and Adam's magnificent power-belt.

This edit took ages as I couldn't stop tinkering with it to try to get everything in perfect synch (which it still isn't). The audio mixing took a heck of a lot of work as the sources didn't play back at the same speed. I removed the ear-splitting screams and attempted to simulate a stereo effect with the mono recordings. Enjoy!

Glam Nation: St. Louis

Here's my playlist for the latest stop of the tour. WLL is another notable one with a very different beginning as Tommy starts off those familiar guitar licks on the bass, rather than Monte on acoustic, making it darker. It also intensifies the feeling of expectation. This one turns out to be a playful one though, when Adam laughs at himself as he does much more dancing, whether snaking across the stage or doing some OTT thrusting. The melodic variations in the riffing sound very different to usual, especially in the final stages where he ranges from the ethereal floaty notes to the power-belt of a soul diva via a rock-god wail. Enjoy!

Glam Nation: Springfield

There was a planned protest by the Westboro loonies but it appears none of them turned up after a heart-warming pro-love counter-protest by fans. We have a defiant kiss followed by 'Suck on that, Westboro!' to lead into Fever. Here's my playlist:

Glam Nation: Oklahoma City

This leg of the tour saw a brave Tommy continuing on despite his sad news. Here's my playlist - not great quality and you might want to turn down the volume as the sound is terrible on most of the videos. There is no WLL.

Glam Nation: Lubbock

Compared to some of the glamorously grandiose theatres Glam Nation has graced, this venue is a hovel. What we have is a hollow tin shed with no lighting from the front. But if we look at the positives, it does lend it the exciting feeling of an illegal warehouse squat rave. Buoyant from the news of the Prop 8 reversal, we have a cheeky set as Adam tucks into the tequila. We're still missing lots of songs at the moment, but here's my playlist:

Glam Nation: Albuquerque

I will forever associate this fiendishly-spelled location with hotdogs and jumping frogs but I digress. The quality of videos we have so far aren't great but here's what I've picked out for you:

Glam Nation: Tempe

The videos for this are still a bit patchy but we have been spoilt for choice recently. Again, I'm still unable to watch any of these which is very frustrating. Tempe didn't get WLL as an encore, just MW. Apparently there was a tender moment between Adam and Monte at the end of Aftermath, but Sod's law dictates that there is video for every other song apart from that one. Here's my playlist anyway:

*UPDATE* Monte's peck on Adam's forehead can just about been seen at the end of the Aftermath video in the playlist.

Glam Nation: Las Vegas

My internet is acting up and I can't watch any videos so I'll just leave you with my playlist:
