Great treats this morning! Two fabulous concerts. Makes we hope all the more than we get the European tour in 2021 !!!!! Hope that all the star will align once again and it will happen.

Adam is on a role in his Twitter account.

I wish he was on stage and I was there to cheer wildly at every single comment/response he is making.
I am so totally of the same mind set as his.

Rock On, Adam!

spoiler: it's political

Broddy....what a thrill to see the superb QAL 2014 Summer Sonic concert from its entirety! It was late last night (circa 2:00 am) when I decided to swing back to 24/7 once more before going to find your latest surprise! Of course, I had to stay up and gorge myself with every last morsel of it before finally hitting the sack! Oh, Adam's rendition in it of "I Was Born to Love You" was delicious!!!!

The Japanese are amazing QAL fans...and very emotional. What amazed me about them most is that they knew and sang all the words to all the English!

That filming was from the Tokyo TV program that I had hoped to see distributed in the USA via DVD, since it WAS in Japan. Don't know why it never was repackaged and released to the English speaking fans, but I have seen the Japanese version offered on Amazon for well over $100! Too expensive for me...even if its packaging was in English!

I have saved the 2nd Tokyo concert for later. Can't wait! Trying to discipline myself to do something constructive first today....I've become such a slug during this pandemic!

Thanks so much for those gems!

Those professional multi-cam videos are so much more exciting and dramatic than ones taken from a single location, and of course, the sound is far superior!

Oh my! How can we persuade Queen and Adam Lambert to produce some DVD's for us to buy...and cherish?

Dee R Gee said...

I'll say it again: I would LOVE some QAL DVDs! They'd be sold by the millions! Fingers crossed.

Adam's current Twitter posts are so heart-felt and filled with frustration. He feels like so many people do. He is getting some backlash for some of his comments, but he is handling it ok. He is a whole person, not just a singer. He has a wide variety of friends from many races, ethnicities and sexualities. He must feel the hurt very personally.

Nanbert said...

Maybe its just as well that I don't have twitter. I can't bear to see/hear Adam being bashed. I have enough trouble with some comments under QAL videos on Youtube!

But, having said that, I can't help but be curious about what's happening on his twitter account.

He's going to the protest tomorrow in LA
Gelly also put up Adam's tweets from last night at this link.

I interrupted my current binge-watch (This Is Us) last night to watch both of the Japan specials. Really enjoyed them! Yes, Nanbert, "I Was Born To Love You" was wonderful indeed. And always great to hear "Show Must Go On" and that fabulous ending glory note!

And, btw, you may have been wondering why I was being so "on the downlow" about the title of the post and the introduction, i.e., just saying "Q+AL" and "Japan." I just don't want to give any more alert to the powers that be who might be scouting out for stuff like this and zapping it off YouTube.

And, I agree — glad Adam is speaking out and even going out to be a part of the protests. He is such a brave man to be broadcasting his feelings and positions to the world!

Nanbert said...

broddybounce ... I'm proud of Adam's conviction and courage....but, OMG...if anything happened to him!!!!!!

He's been being so careful about the coronavirus, but if he goes out in that crowd now......if he catches COVID-19.... or attracts too much attention to himself....!
