01.20.2016

 MASHANTUCKET, CT (January 20, 2016) - Foxwoods® Resort Casino is pleased to announce multi-platinum-selling, Grammy-nominated recording artist Adam Lambert will be taking the stage at the Northeast’s premier entertainment destination in Mashantucket this February.

 

 

The highly anticipated 2016 North American tour will support Adam’s critically acclaimed third studio album, “The Original High” which released last June on Warner Bros. Records and debuted at #3 on Billboard’s Top 200 Album Chart.  The album recently snagged the #1 spot in Rolling Stone Magazine’s “Readers’ Poll: Top 10 Best Albums of 2015,” and its lead, smash single “Ghost Town” landed at #2 on their “Readers’ Poll: Top 10 Best Songs of 2015.”

 

Fresh off a recent world tour fronting legendary rock band Queen, Lambert is set to deliver his best stage show yet, treating fans to some of his biggest hits including “Whataya Want From Me,” “Better Then I Know Myself,” “For Your Entertainment” and “Ghost Town.”

 

International superstar Adam Lambert is a Billboard chart topping, multi-award winning, multi-platinum-selling-singer-songwriter and performer.  Best known for his soaring voice and unique blend of theatrical flair and glam-rock sensibilities, the pop singer has performed in front of sold out crowds worldwide -both as a solo artist and with legendary rock group Queen.

 

His work has garnered a number of music awards and nominations including a Grammy nomination for “Best Male Pop Vocal Performance,” a BMI Award for “Award-Winning Songs,” two GLAAD Awards, a Young Hollywood Award for “Artist of the Year,” a Teen Choice Award for “Choice Male Reality/Variety Star,” and a People’s Choice Award nomination for “Break-Out Musical Artist.”

 

Lambert stepped into the national spotlight in 2009 when he became a finalist on the eighth season of American Idol. His vocal range, along with his unique style, made him a standout contestant and he quickly won over millions of viewers. After the season wrapped, Lambert released his widely successful RCA Records debut, “For Your Entertainment,” which sold nearly 2 million copies worldwide to date.  The album’s first single “Whataya Want From Me,” became a radio smash and earned him his first Grammy nomination for “Best Male Pop Vocal Performance.”  In June of 2010, Lambert embarked on his first headlining tour playing to sold out crowds in the U.S., Europe and Asia.

 

His sophomore album, “Trespassing,” was released in 2012, garnered rave reviews and became the first #1 debut on the Billboard 200 Album chart by an openly gay artist.  More recently, Lambert had a 5 episode arc on “Glee” during its 2014 season. 

 

Adam Lambert will take the stage at Foxwoods on February 26th. Tickets for “The Original High Tour” may be purchased online at www.foxwoods.com or www.ticketmaster.com, or by calling the Foxwoods Box Office at 800-200-2882 or Ticketmaster at 800-745-3000.
