First Look: Adam Lambert & His New Band

Adam Lambert, American Idol‘s runner-up last season, has released the first look at his new band. Good to see they’re all such non-conformists that they’re even conforming to their own non-conformity. Well, maybe all except the keyboardist who has declared herself a clothes-free zone.

What do you think of Adam’s new band? Looking forward to a Lambert tour?

  1. i think adam should of won not second runner up but winner.you are fantastic and a great performer .it dosnt matter what you are, or what you do you are great

  2. Roxann; ADAM was the real winner!! AMERICAN IDOL CHEATED WITH AT&T TO GET ADAM LAMBERT KNOCKED OUT OF 1ST PLACE!!! THE HOMOPHOBICS DID NOT WANT A GAY MAN TO WIN AMERICAN IDOL. GO to http://www.dreamsound.com to see what the people on that link and posting board have to say about ADAM LAMBERT.IT IS AN ADAM LAMBERT FAN CLUB! THE WOMEN ARE CRAZY ABOUT ADAM!!! SHERRY K

  3. >Good to see they’re all such non-conformists that they’re even conforming to their own non-conformity.<

    If this band sticks together for the next 10 – 15 yrs, it will be interesting watching the girl in the undies mature. LOL. Sometimes, being a non conformist paints one into a corner. She may be the living proof of such.

  4. he may be successful but i’m glad he is not the american idol just doesn’t look like i think an american idol should look

  5. I disagree. I am a normal, well adjusted, hard-working 49 year old and I think Adam is amazing. I love Kris too, to be honest. I have a number of friends over the age of 40 who are still interested in what’s going on in the arts today. Generalizations are seldom correct.

    Possibly will appeal to the young–but much too “goth” for anyone over 40.

  6. AWESOME! The sky is the limit Adam go for it. We needed someone like Adam to come along, break all the rules (in a good way) step outside the box. I am thrilled!!!!!

  7. I’m over 60 and I think Adam has incredible talent: ranking with Elvis, Paul Simon and Michael Jackson. If the press and public can allow him to develop his career I believe that we will all benefit from his artistry!!!

  8. I am really dissapointed in what has come of Adam Lambert and his whole career. It looks gothic and dark. Too bad American Idol had to be a part of this. Don’t know if I’ll even be interested in next season if this is what comes out of it. Sorry.

  9. Adam is a talent to be reckoned with indeed. The look is just that, a look. Nothing more. The early rule breakers wore their own as well. Elvis, The Beatles, Stones, Jackson, etc. etc. etc. For the most part, the costumes will be seen only if you desire to see them. It’s the sound that matters. Anyone else notice the socks in his pants? LOL

  10. I am sorry Adam, I really think your new band is awful looking. I am a grandmother and really enjoyed you singing on Idol, but hoped you would not go so extreme!!

  11. I am disappointed, the look is too far out. gay or not Adam is too good looking to be so dark and overly extreme. I would love to see him perform in person but would not so much appreciate the back up band.

  12. WOW! Can’t wait to see them perform. Gotta say though; it fits right in with
    Adam and who he wants to be.

    I say go for it and I will definetly be watching. You’re the MAN adam

  13. OH! By the way I forgot to mention that I’m a Grandmother, and I still say go for it Adam. I think you are fabulous anyway you are. Some people can’t accept change and that says that.

    My only advise is, you are multi talented and can sing anything wonderfully. So I would hate to see you loose and become one thing like the dark sie of Goth and not utilize that wonderful voice you have.

  14. Adam is a genuine talent but I think he is going to the extreme and will only focus on the younger crowd. Michael Jackson was one to catch the crowd of all ages, Adam could be the same. But greatness is a combination of looks, music, fans, talent and most of all an entertainer which tries to please his or her fans and not just him or herself because that is the way they want to be.

  15. I will be anxiously awaiting to see how the band performs in relation to being a background sound for Adam’s unbelievable voice. When I saw chains and other bondage items included for his first video preview, I was a little hesitant to fully accept this darker side of Adam’s music. However, I will take a “wait and see” attitude and trust that Adam will truly be the entertainer he plans to be, understanding that he has a large female fan base from 8 to 88 and hope he remembers that not all of us will accept such a change from the man we came to love and appreciate during his outstanding performances on American Idol. I know that Adam is a very intelligent man and will endeavor to strike a perfect balance for all of his fans’ entertainment.

  16. I was absolutely blown away every single time by Lambert’s performances on American Idol 2009.
    His vocal versatility, showmenship proves he deserved to be the winner. I look forward to his tour, and his new CD. American Idol finally got their pick right!!

  17. The members of Queen have said many times that if people love you or hate you, you have something amazing. Adam has that in spades – few people are neutral on him. Yeah, he’s different and pushing some boundaries but so did Freddie and many like him in their early days. Time will tell and I think Time will have Adam around for the long haul.

  18. I agree with Jo (post #19). He has sooo much talent! I loved watching him on idol! He has to be careful with going so extreme in his look and music if he wants to reach the iconic stage of Elvis & Michael Jackson. He has proven he can sing/perform anything.. I hope he doesn’t limit himself to just the gothic/rock side.

  19. I would like to agree with (JO) post #19!! I love ADAM! Belong to his fan club. And he has the talent to be a national icon like Michael Jackson. BUT, AND THIS IS A BIG BUT~He was waaaay too extreme when he got the chance of a life time to sing the ending show tonight on the American Music Awards!! It was over the top for me. It had too much how can I say this with out offending anyone?????? CAMP, GAY LOOKING ADAM. JUST LIKE CLAY AIKEN BECAME AFTER AMERICAN IDOL. If he doesn’t stop it, or his people don’t put a stop to it he will not become anything great! PERSONALLY, I THOUGHT ADAM WAS MUCH SMARTER THAN THAT. MY husband who really liked ADAM on American Idol thought it was disgusting.COME ON NOW ADAM! GET WITH THE PROGRAM OF JUST BEING IKE YOU WERE ON AMERICAN IDOL IF YOU WANT TO LAST!!! PLEASE!!!!!!!

  20. SHARON, BABS, ELIZABETH AND JO, YOU are so right. AND SO SMART!! ADAM is going to bring him self down by doing and being just like he wants! And not caring what the fans think! I am so disappointed I could cry! I thought ADAM was smarter than that! Oh well, let’s see what he does next!! Thanks for your wonderful and thoughtful comments! Sherry K ~~SEE MY COMMENT #24! THANK-YOU!

  21. I think this is fantastic!!!! Adam is different and I am glad his band represents that!

    Just cannot wait for his CD to hit our South African shores!

  22. I WAS SO EXCITED ABOUT ADAM BEING ON THE AMA LAST NIGHT THAT I STOOD UP AND WATCHED THE WHOLE SHOW……I WASN’T TOTALLY DISAPPOINTED BECAUSE I FIGURED HE WOULD BE OUT THERE AND HE WAS….BUT I KNOW HE HAS OTHER SIDES TO HIM FROM WATCHING IDOL….HE SINGS THE SONG FROM 2012 AND I LOVED IT…….I KNOW I WILL BE A FAN OF HIS ALWAYS….I THINK HE IS A RARE TALENTS AND MAY NEED A LITTLE GUIDANCE BUT HE HAS STAGE PRESENT AND HE WILL BE FINE……
    I STILL FEEL HE SHOULD HAVE WON LAST YEAR….I SAW KRIS ALLEN LAST NIGHT AND I THINK HE IS A VERY GOOD SINGER BUT HE DIDN’T PERFORM LAST NIGHT ADAM DID……????????
    HELLO SHERRY K AND BABS….NICE TO SEE YOU ON THE SITE AGAIN…..HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL!!!!

  23. So excited for Adam’s new album coming out today!! He is awesome and I am looking forward to alot of music coming from him and his new band!! Good luck Adam!!

  24. WELL DIANA THE WAIT IS OVER…HIS CD IS AWESOME….I PRE-ORDERED MINE ONLINE AND RECEIVED IT YESTERDAY…..I PLAYED THE ENTIRE CD…..IT WAS WONDERFUL……I KNOW HIS PERFORMANCE WAS OVER THE EDGE ON THE AMA BUT HIS CD IS GREAT…..NOW I HAVE TO LISTEN TO KRIS ALLEN’S…..I’M SURE IT WILL BE GOOD IN A DIFFERENT STYLE…..
    ALL YOU ADAM FAN’S FORGET ABOUT THE AMA AND LISTEN TO HIS NEW CD…..ITS EXACTLY WHAT I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE……HE IS A RARE TALENT….HE DOES NEED TO COOL DOWN HIS LIVE PERFORMANCES……AND I THINK HE WILL WITH TIME. LIKE TO HEAR YOUR VIEWS ON THE CD!!!!

  25. Adam needs to stop trying to draw attention to himself for acceptance. I think his performance was ridiculous and would turn the channel if he appears live again. I turned it off during the AMA awards. He can sing, does not need to flaunt his agenda.

  26. Thanks for the CD update Phyllis, I plan on purchasing it in the very near future. Yes, he is a little over the top but that is why we all love him!! What AMA? It is already wiped from my memory!! Keep on keepin’ on Adam!! 🙂

  27. Adam is Adam, He’s got his own style, he’s a rare talent and a hot guy to watch move! The AMA was a little extreme but I felt a double standard with all of the criticism I have so much faith in his talent, have preorded the cd and can’t wait……

  28. Mary is dead wrong with her statement about
    people over 40 not enjoying Adam and his band
    of “goth” I am 57 and absolutely love Adam and
    the band sounds great. Mary, you need to speak
    for yourself only. Please do not put me in your catagory.

  29. I think Adam is extremely talented, & was really looking forward to seeing him on the AMA. But if that is an example of his future performances, he certainly lost one ole granny who was sorely disappointed. But then, I fast forwarded through most of the show to see him, & didn’t miss much.

  30. Even though Adam lost to Kris Alan because of manipulation of the voting systems . But he will become the MOST FAMOUS OF ALL THE PREVIOUS IDOL !!! Why ??? Because he is the most versatile and can sing many types of songs . Secondly he is one the bravest gay singer that I have ever seen . He is not a hypocrite like most people in this world . Some people on the outside might have a wife and kids . Privately they have affairs with their boyfriends . So Adam Rocks – Baby – LONG LIVE TO ADAM . After Michael Jackson – Adam will be the next ICON !!!

  31. I hate to call myself a Granny but I for one can’t wait for his concerts…..Gay…..I don’t care, he’s talented and about the sexiest singer I’ve seen in a long time……He’s hot! Love his voice and taste in clothes…..doesn’t hurt to have a great body to put them on! Adam is what he is, love him or leave him alone!

  32. I too, am over 40 and absolutely in love with Adam and his music. Where has he been all this time?? I will definitely be in the front row with my sister who is 50 and loves him as much as I.

  33. I say that Adam Lambert and his new band are the bomb! They are very talented, will go places, and they are the real deal. America spends to much time on judging stars instead of just enjoying their talent at face value. Even if he was a Satanist,lol, who cares, he has wonderful talent and his songs are awesome!

  34. Adam has a talent but it is being wasted, I am so glad he didn’t win american idol, he is an embarrassment or shall I say his actions are. Btw Kris fans didn’t cheat he won fair and square don’t you think its time to get over it and move on,deal with it. btw I am not a huge Kris fan, I am an Allison fan so I’m not biast.

  35. BECKY….I RESPECT YOUR OPINION BUT ADAM IS NOT WASTING HIS TALENTS….HIS CD IS UNBELIEVABLE…..HE IS A RARE TALENT THAT COMES ALONG ONLY A FEW TIMES IN ONE’S LIFETIME AND WE ARE FORTUNATE TO HEAR IT…..
    IF YOU BELIEVE THAT KRIS WON FAIR AND SQUARE THEN YOU REALLY MUST NOT HAVE BEEN WATCHING TO OFTEN. HE OUT SANG EVERYONE IN THAT COMPETITION. DON’T GET ME WRONG I LIKED KRIS ALLEN VERY MUCH, EVEN BOUGHT HIS CD, BUT YOU REALLY CAN’T EVEN PUT THEM IN THE SAME LEAGUE…I, TOO, LIKED ALLISON AND I HOPE ONE DAY HER AND ADAM HOOK UP AGAIN LIKE THEY DID ON AI. THEY WERE AWESOME……

  36. It appears he’s targeting the “teenage” or misfit crowd – which is totally his choice (I think) Here’s hoping that this phase will pass and the rest of the world can enjoy his unbelievable vocals on a more mature level…

  37. I’ve been a fan since his first appearance on idol, I’m over 60 and hope he makes smart choices because he has too much going for him to go down the wrong road. I for one can’t wait for a concert tour! Love his look, personality, fashion taste and most of all his voice. I hope he surrounds himself with good people.

  38. @ Sherry and Coleen, I am 42 and what I enjoy most about Adam is that he knows who he is as an artist, he is bold, and he doesnt care what people think. He may just be targeting the teenage crowd because they r usually the most open minded people when it comes to music and they dont judge u by how u look as long as the music is good. We as a society just need to not view a book by its cover and just enjoy his band. I remember when Adam did an interview with someone after the AMA’s and they ask Adam if he wanted to apologise for inappproprite behavior. Adam gave a wonderful answer, he said it was 11 pm and I am entertainer so I entertained. He was he was not a baby sister and he is right. At 11 pm the only people who should be up r adults and if u get offended with him then u have to be old fashioned and closed minded. Life is to short so one should have an open mind and just enjoy him.

  39. Dan……U read me wrong…….I agree with everything you said. I’m a huge follower and only hope for the good where Adam is concerned. If you think I’m old fashioned and closed minded U shouldn’t be so quick to judge a very positive person, you must think I don’t have a mind since I’m over 60!

  40. Hi Dan,

    I just hope he doesn’t stick to the one genre. He obviously has enough talent to play a wide range of music to a wide range of audiences. I don’t really care how “out there” he wants to be – I just hope he doesn’t feel he always has to be “way out there”……

  41. HEY PHYLLIS G(LAS VEGAS,NV) HOW ARE YOU DOING GIRL! I DON’T KNOW WHAT SIGN YOU ARE BORN UNDER. MAYBE YOU ARE A SAGITTARIUS LIKE ME. YOU GO GIRL! DON’T LET THEM DIS ADAM! HE IS DEFINITELY THE BEST ARTIST TO COME ALONG IN A LONG,LONG TIME!!! IF THEY BELIEVE KRIS WON FAIR AND SQUARE, THEY NEVER READ MY POST ABOUT HOW ATT&T CHEATED DOWN HERE!!!

  49. There are quite a few laptop manufacturers that also recognize the need for higher RAM which is why there are some which offer upgrade worthy versions where you can increase the RAM to about 2 GB also. This is not only possible but also becoming increasingly common in the world of mini laptops.

  50. uhhh! i HATE adam lambert with all my heart! he SUXX! kris alln is the real winner! im not saying i hate adam cuz he’s gay, but he is a sucky singer! i still cant BELIEVE he was a runner up or at least made it on the show! and i defiantly cant believe he has fans!

  51. When’s Adam coming to Fla on his Glam Nation tour? I hear his tickets are selling out FAST! He is the best singer/performer and an absolute sweetheart of a person. All you haters, just listen to his interviews, he’s the real deal inside and out. Can’t wait to see him perform again. Love Adam more than any other artist out there today by a landslide!

  52. @Brownie,
    I’m with you….I just love his CD, play it all the time. I’m still waiting for him to come to Vegas!!!!!!

  53. Over 50, straight, married female and lovin’ me some Adam Lambert! People need to get outside of their closed little boxes and see Adam for what he is: An AWESOME Entertainer. LOVE YOU ADAM!!! Can’t wait to purchase the next CD and get to a concert. PS: His face is the first thing I see when the computer starts up! Most Handsome Devil!!

  54. i think they are a cool band. they are rock solid. i like everybody. and adam i love u i think you are very telanted and i hope keep making music like areosmith you know for a long time because i think you are increadible artist i love your music you will always be my americsn idol even though you didnt win in my heart you me over and i love everything you do you make me happy you are real when you go up on that stage and your voice is incredible and i am sorry for saying this but i think you are the sexiet man i ever seen and one day alucky man is going to ask you out because a guy like shouldnt be single i remember the day i first seen you. you were singing satisfaction and i fell in love with you i am number one of his fans in my state and i wish i can go see him but hes playing at the carsino and i am a minor but one day i am going to see him live p.s i love u love ur band and music and keep doin what ur doing

  55. First of all, let me say, I am WELL OVER forty…..but I appreciate talent just as well as the next person….and I appreciate Adams talent….his VOICE is wonderful….his appearance is TERRIBLE. I too am so thankful he didn't win AI, because I don't believe he is the idol that our young people need to be following We all are deserving of a chance, so we'll see what he does with his CHANCE.

  56. qui lui donne un enorm charm et pour adam (i realy like his ) j'aimme entendre sa chanson "whataya want from me"he too have a lovely look and finaly je réve de chanter avec lui un jour car moi aussi j'ai une trés belle voix mais surtout pas de chance

  57. Hey Im a huge fan!

    I think your band is the best Ive seen in a while. but I would like to see the 2 guiter guys come up more and play because they look like they are always at the back.

    And Adam I love how alison from idol was in (If I had you) that was really nice xoxo

  58. I, too, believe that ADAM should have WON! I KNOW that I called in so VERY MANY times for him! But he lost anyway! 'Just as "my" Cla lost to Rueben! DRATS! and DOUBLE DRATS!

  59. Okay, I will try and keep this civil with no problem with the topic. If one of my children came home looking like these ladies & gentlemen, they would have to either have to change clothes or stay at home. I'm so glad I wasn't born into this generation time.

    You can ban me now. I won't be back nor watch American Idol ever again!!!!! So, thank you for posting this.
