Review: Adam Lambert electrifies The Paramount in New York SPECIAL
BY MARKOS PAPADATOS FEB 24, 2016 IN MUSIC
Huntington – Grammy-nominated pop superstar Adam Lambert performed at The Paramount in Huntington on Feb. 23 and his show was electrifying.
Lambert opened his set with “Evil In The Night,” which was an opening number high in adrenaline. He immediately broke into this spitfire and provocative single “For Your Entertainment,” as the stage was graced in purple lights.
“Ghost Town” had a hypnotic yet haunting vibe to it, and it was followed by a medley of “Chokehold” and “Sleepwalker.” His performance of his Grammy-nominated “Whataya Want From Me” was as powerful as if it were the national anthem. He changed the pace of his show, with the moving ballad “Mad World,” as he showcased his vulnerability on the melancholic tune. Equally impressive was the acoustic version of “Things I Didn’t Say” and his latest single “Another Lonely Night.”
After a dance break, Lambert returned for a medley of “The Light” and the title track of his latest album, “The Original High.” He tipped his hat to the late David Bowie by covering “Let’s Dance,” and displayed his versatility with the EDM-flaired track “Lay Me Down.”
The flamboyant star closed his show with “If I Had You,” where he encouraged his fans to sing along with him. For his encore, Lambert returned to belt out “Trespassing” and his cover of Queen’s “Another One Bites the Dust.”
Overall, Adam Lambert’s show at The Paramount in Huntington was one true musical experience. He knew how to command the stage, and work the New York audience. He was charismatic, passionate and energetic for his craft, and that energy was infectious. Lambert’s live show garnered 5 out of 5 stars.
