Adam Lambert Mini Residency Coming to Las Vegas' Venetian Theatre: Exclusive
It’s not just another Tuesday for singer Adam Lambert. Today he releases a new song, “Roses” featuring Nile Rodgers, announces a new album, Velvet, out March 20, and his first solo headlining gig in Las Vegas, April 22 and 24-25 at the Venetian Theatre.
His first turn in Las Vegas, back in September 2018 was a 10-night sell-out at Park Theater—where Lady Gaga performs—with Queen + Adam Lambert’s “The Crown Jewels” residency.
Live Nation’s Billy Conn, the promoter behind the Venetian Theatre, says that Lambert was an easy choice for a “mini residency” as he appeals to different audiences from a range of demographics.
This reach can be attributed to Lambert’s appearance on American Idol season 8, his vibrant solo career including a Grammy Award nomination for “Whatya Want From Me,” his second record Trespassing, which reportedly became the first album to reach the No. 1 spot in the U.S. and Canada by an openly gay artist, and touring as the lead singer of Queen since 2012.
“He's created new fans on both sides,” Conn says. “Look at all the tickets that Queen [has sold] and all the touring. You had a lot of Queen fans [who didn’t know who] Adam was, and vice versa. It should be very unique to see the two different age groups cross over to come see the show.”
Tickets go on sale Feb. 8 for Velvet, his three-night limited engagement at Venetian Theatre. These will be his only solo dates in the U.S. this year. Lambert will tour the 13-song Velvet across Europe starting in Manchester, U.K. on Aug. 30 for the Manchester Pride festival, before playing London’s Wembley Arena and making his way across Europe concluding in Helsinki on September 12.
The Venetian Theatre has seen an incredible arc over the last decade. Formerly the home of the stage production of Phantom of the Opera, now it is a top selling venue for heritage acts such as Chicago, Doobie Brothers and ZZ Top and country stars such as Tim and Faith, Willie Nelson and Rascal Flatts.
“Chicago has been coming for the last four years. And we continuously keep their residency going with eight to nine shows every calendar year. Styx has come through the room. ZZ Top, Steely Dan. And we had some great success in the shorter more limited runs, with Jackson Browne, Michael McDonald,” Conn says.
At 1,800 seats, its capacity is a sweet spot for touring musicians, offering a more intimate experience for audiences that are accustomed to seeing these acts in larger venues.

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.

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
