I was wondering if there are any Finnish fans here that can tell me about the ICE theater in Helsinki - specifically which section is in front of the stage. Is it the side labelled KENTTÄ or the side labelled Lava? Google says that Kentaa means field and lava means platform but judging from the very few concerts on sale there, it looks like Kentaa is the front of the stage. Ice is actually a hockey arena and I'm surprised there wasn't a better concert hall available.
Anyway, I need to buy for 3 venues on Feb. 14 - and Hamburg and Copenhagen are General Admission (*sigh - more queueing*) but Helsinki looks like it has seats, so will try it first but don't want to futz around looking at the wrong sections. Hopefully someone knows which side to focus on.

Looking ahead to Vegas, I guessed The NFL Experience would have a big impact on The Strip. (We already know what it did to hotel prices!!) This article shows a map of the area that will be most impacted. I realize this article was from January but thought some would like a "heads up".
Yes!!! Do have to also say that the purple jacket is one of his best ever looks for me. I like the sleeveless red leather vest a lot, too.
I have to admit that I was dreading the tour leaving Asia because I feared the “Freddy” comparisons would begin. I figure now that Freddie’s name is spelled incorrectly about as much as it is spelled correctly. What he said in Asia is enough, enough for any audience, language barrier or no. It is enough because going back to the same metaphor can, after how many trips around the world be overkill. . To many of the current audience, Adam is the only frontman they’ve known. And there are innumerable reasons we have discussed why a shorter version, either like Asia—my favorite—or the torch speech is better. I was explaining all of this to my 89 year old mother who is smart and blunt but never rude. She let me have my say and then said, “Now, I know I’ve heard you talk about this for years now. So I’m just going to say two things, take them or leave them. You’ve heard them before, but I’m going to say this about all of this Freddie/Adam goings on. It sounds to me like Adam might be stirring up a hornet’s nest. If you think that is too hard, from what you’ve said, it sounds to me like he is bringing it on himself.” Of course, I’m not going to argue with my 89 year old mother, but I don’t want to because I’m accepting what she says.
Then, I found some review where the reviewer called QAL a “tribute band” and Brian’s solo “self-indulgent” even if we could see why later. The whole article’s style is written in that florid, bloated “look at me; aren’t I smart?” style, and I hope Brian sees it and either does a cut and paste or revised version of his previous tribute band rebuttal where he tears this writer into literary shreds for his 2 million or so followers to read. Sigh...I guess I should just stop reading reviews.
Okay...getting cheerful for the rest of this leg of the QAL and to see solo Adam. 😄😁😘
Something very cool: if you look at page 5 of yesterday’s thread to the IWBTLY video and listen carefully about the 3:32 point, you will hear general appreciations; when you get to 3:37, you can hear this woman say, “He’s as good as him. He’s as good as him.” Those kind of awakenings are so heartwarming to me.
For those going to Vegas, I called my hotel for reservations today, and the concierge advised that since it was such an enormously packed weekend, they are recommending dinner reservations at the earliest you can. All my years of going to Vegas, they have never told me anything like that, and look how far out we are, time-wise. This is going to be a zoo! The concierge did like our concert theater.
Remember our discussion yesterday of how some of us found the tailoring of the tapestry suit pants odd. I didn’t write why, but to myself, I thought the hem was too high creating a sort of truncated effect, and the other thing I thought the most strangely tailored was the front of the pants. Please remember or come to know that I have visual problems, so all I had seen was that the front was either loose so he could tuck his shirt in or just sort of pouchy-looking. But I was going through today or yesterday’s thread, and this girl was taking some real close-ups that I can see really well. Then, I came to one where she had a super-close-up of right at the front of those pants which I thought pouchiness was part of strange tailoring.
Also, the guy who Adam had the recent picture with—Adam had also met him before—he has a bunch of pictures of him and others who are wearing what may or may not be wearing skimpy speedo-type looking bottoms and these odd harness-looking things on top. Are they a team? I am confused.
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.

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
