The set ended, amazingly and unexpectedly, with the off-the-charts, over-the-top, acid-disco insanity of the For Your Entertainment bonus track, "Down The Rabbit Hole" (note to Adam: ALWAYS END YOUR SHOWS WITH THIS ONE; IT LEAVES SWEATY FANS GAGGING FOR MORE AND WILL ENSURE AN ENCORE EVERY SINGLE TIME). And finally, this was followed by a drum-solo-enhanced, keytar-augmented (!!!!), earthquake-simulatingly thunderous encore of his American Idol signature song, Led Zeppelin's "Whole Lotta Love." That was a whole lotta Adam, and a whole lotta awesome.
So it looks like Adam Lambert got his New Year's rockin' Eve after all--on his terms. And if his Gridlock NYE set was an indication of what he can deliver in a full concert, on his own stage, then I'm already looking forward to his 2010 tour.
