I also read just now that flagged video's are also not eligible to monetize. Which means Adam is not receiving any income from the video's which are blocked. His full channel is blocked though so does that mean he isn't receiving money for any of those?
ETA: I send Shosh the tweet about Adam's channel and video's being blocked because of this. They will probably investigate.
I am sure that Shosh (actually not her job to manage YT) and Adam's management and team at WBR know about the issue. It too about 1 hour for YT to get complaints from many artists and their reps.
On the monitization -- yes and no.
Adam's videos were fine until the restriction was incorrectly put on. BUT the minute they flagged them as not being appropriated for people under 18 years old, they were not eligible for monitization or ad revenue. I assume that when the fixed it (and it is fixed for my location), they also fixed any revenue issues.
Here is the YT policy....
Some videos don't violate our policies, but may not be appropriate for all audiences. In these cases our review team may place an age restriction when we're notified of the content. Age-restricted videos are not visible to users who are logged out, are under 18 years of age, or have Restricted Mode enabled.
When evaluating whether content is appropriate for all ages, here are some of the things we consider:
Vulgar language Violence and disturbing imagery Nudity and sexually suggestive content Portrayal of harmful or dangerous activities
To learn more about what you can do to avoid having your video age-restricted, please visit our Policy Center.
If you are looking to monetize your video, please review our policies as age-restricted videos will not be eligible for monetization and will also not be shown in certain sections of YouTube. Age-restricted videos are also not eligible to be used for ads.
While they call it "age restricted" -- it is a lot more that that. Most YT are viewed by users who are logged out.
This was a horrendous mistake on YT's part. I hope they do more than apologize. Perhaps they could feature LBGTQ artists for a month. Or just feature Adam Lambert.
And for all the discussion about "should have been" singles -- Runnin' at least should have been an album track vs. a bonus track. That one looks like with just a bit of promotion could have been a streaming hit.
I was looking on ticket master Los Angeles concerts, it seems to me that the second day is not selling well, so many tickets available in every category and that is not even counting the re-sellers tickets.
I guess it depends on how you define "well." The capacity is 17,500 -- and it looks like about 10K-12K are sold. There is a lot of speculating going on with the two LA concerts. My prediction is this concert will be close to sold out.
In any case, they were already in LA for the day off, so the expense for adding the second concert is minimal -- so even if ticket sales stopped today, this would be the most profitable concert of the tour.
I Loved the lite up shirt from Morongo and I wasn't even there!
I was on the front row of the Frestival at the Gaylord in DC and I loved those spikey shorts! You could see his pretty fuzzy legs. :D It was so hot that day.....so hot. The audience faced the late afternoon sun. We about melted. Lined up inside for hours and hours and then they opened 4 doors and we ran as fast as we could in sandals, down steps and the hillside. Surprised we didn't fall and break our necks. lol #ItsAdamsFault
Yes, it was hot and humid in that way that only DC seems to be.
Too bad they didn't schedule the concert for later in the day, like sunset.
I think Adam has a very difficult balance to create when he selects his QAL Tour costumes -- he wants to remain a current pop artist and yet he is fronting a classic rock band in a very high profile role.
I actually think in total, he has done a great job of not replicating Freddie, but honoring his flamboyance and abandon, while remaining 110% Adam.
In any case, I am looking forward to seeing what he decides to wear this tour -- perhaps we will get silver and black?
We all have our favorite and least favorite Adam outfits. My least favorite clothing items he has worn on stage are from Adam's solo concerts:
Morongo concert (a great concert) 7/18/15 -- the light-up shirt. I do not think it ever reappeared.
Freshtaval (not a great concert, not great sound, in the afternoon -- it was a relatively small crowd at a poorly promoted radio concert) 5/27/12 the spiky shorts. Not quite aqua boardshorts but pretty close. I do not believe these ever reappeared again. And, no, there are no spikes on the back.
Here they are in motion....
Welcome to the Show!
