The Lambert Army will finally get a chance to check out [artist id="3188063"]Adam Lambert[/artist] live when he kicks off his Glam Nation Tour on June 4 in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. For the trek, he'll be bringing along fellow "American Idol" alum Allison Iraheta and guitarist Orianthi.
While most of the announced tour stops in support of his For Your Entertainment album take place in June, more summer dates will be added. The tour winds up on September 18 in St. Petersburg, Florida, with stops all over the country in between.
"I hope the audience will be able to escape for a few hours and fall into a world full of glam, drama and excitement," Lambert said in a press release. "And I would love everyone to come away with a new appreciation for the music on my album."
While he already knows what it's like to share the stage with Iraheta, he's excited to be bringing Orianthi along for the tour. "I was lucky enough to work with Orianthi on the 'Sleepwalker' track on my album," he said. "She is a killer guitarist and a great vocalist. I'm so excited to be sharing the stage with her.
"I am such a fan of Allison's music and I am so excited for her to perform it live in front of an audience," Adam added about his pal Iraheta. "We have such a great brother-and-sister energy, having shared the stage both on 'American Idol' and on the tour [last] summer. She is pure rock and roll."
So, what should fans expect from the show? Lambert teased that it's very theatrical in nature and that he wants his costumes to be very "cutting-edge." "I hope to use some special-effects lighting," Lambert explained. "The Glam Nation Tour is going to be very theatrical. People won't be let down in the glam department; it'll definitely be something to look at as well as listen to."
