Most visitors traveling the streets of Philadelphia are looking for some history.
On August 12 2010, I was looking for the Adam Lambert concert.
At the Tower Theater, I found the history, too.
Rock and Roll history was made and can be seen in the lobby's collection of old Tower concert posters.
I was particularly fascinated by the Queen posters from January 31 - February 2 1976.
The Tower introduced America to David Bowie and The Spiders from Mars in 1972... In September 1974, Bruce Springsteen – who had an early, strong, and long-lived fan base in Philadelphia – introduced the world to his new E Street Band... Other regular Midnight Sun headliners at the Tower included Jackson Browne, Lou Reed, Steve Miller, and various editions of the Jerry Garcia/Merle Saunders band. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tower_Theater_(Upper_Darby,_Pennsylvania) - bit.ly/6oJxrV
Queen'sA Night at the Opera Tour was a concert tour in 1975 by Queen to promote their album A Night at the Opera. It spanned from 1975 to 1976 and covered Europe, the United States, Japan, and Australia. This was the first appearance of Bohemian Rhapsody, which went on to be played at every Queen gig from the A Night At The Opera Tour to the Magic Tour. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Night_at_the_Opera_Tour - bit.ly/18tgjs3
Queen concert in Philly 1976 Queen concert pictures we took from the orchestra pit in 1976 at The Tower Theater.
David Bowie repaid his Philly fans by recording his David Live album during a long run of shows at the Tower. Bowie and Genesis' Phil Collins would subsequently mention their Tower shows as being instrumental in introducing them to an American audience. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tower_Theater_(Upper_Darby,_Pennsylvania) - bit.ly/6oJxrV
This is for major Adamtopia announcements. If you want to discuss Adam, start with today's Daily News & Information thread.
nannygoat: Just heard this parody of Bohemian Rhapsody. Thought everyone would enjoy it. Amazes me how people can be so creative. ow.ly/p9ZH30niDPS and did I mention how much I am enjoying all the 'goodies' we got lately? "Feel Something" is gorgeous.

atomom: Adam's artistry is in full display: the surprise of hiccuppy gasps right before "new eyes", the sensuous tongue, one-two punch of "damn" smile, head thrown back, body drops to heavy guitar beats, a lusciously looking Adam--all make NE a visual/aural feast.

jason90405: The complete MTV Pride 2 hour special "Adam Lambert's Fierce Pride Anthems". I did miss the first 30 seconds when he was talking about performing for Cher but you can watch or downloads the whole thing here: drive.google.com/file/d/1H3NfgxeBpk0H

phronni7: Linda, Thank you so much for your kind wishes and thoughts. I tried to send an earlier thanks, but I don’t know what happened. I was definitely in Zombie mode and might still be to some extent. But I love “I was born to Love You”. Than you again, Laur
