Adam Lambert Promises 'Theatrical' Glam Nation Tour, Talks Next Single

'It'll definitely be something to look at as well as listen to,' the 'American Idol' alum says of live show.

If you were a fan of [artist id="3188063"]Adam Lambert[/artist]'s laser-enhanced [article id="1637080"]performance of "Whataya Want From Me"[/article] on last week's "American Idol," well, you're in luck. Because on his upcoming Glam Nation Tour -- which, according to his official website, now has a handful of actual dates -- he's definitely going to be breaking out the big (laser) guns once again.

"I hope to use some special-effects lighting like that, sure," Lambert told MTV News on the red carpet of the GLAAD Media Awards this past Saturday. "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."

And when the Glam Nation Tour kicks off (the first date is tentatively June 4 in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania), Lambert will also have a brand-new single to promote: the strutting and sparkly "If I Had You," which he's planning to shoot a video for next month. The song, written by the Swedish hitmaking team of Max Martin and Shellback, is a favorite of Lambert's, not just because of its top-flight pedigree, but because of the message it contains.

"It's a great song -- really fun, upbeat, joyful," Lambert said. "And the message in the song is really exciting, because basically what it's saying is no matter what color your skin is, no matter what religion you are, no matter what your sexuality is, no matter what your age is, we can all party together. We can all find common love. And all this other stuff -- money, success, fortune, fashion, glam -- it's all great, but it doesn't mean anything if you're not connecting. ... I love it."
