POSTPONED: American Idol Live

August 26th, 2011, 2:16 pm by Greg

The American Idol Live concert tour stop, which was originally scheduled for Sunday evening at Albany’s Times Union Center, has been postponed due to the impending arrival of Hurricane Irene.

The concert has been pushed back one week, and is now slated to take place at the TUC at 7pm on Sunday, September 4. (Which, of course, is bad news if you’ve already got tix for Elton John at SPAC on September 4.) American Idol tix purchased for the original date will be honored on September 4.


American Idols Live: Who’s the metalhead? Kris or Adam?

Yes, the American Idols Live tour rolled through Albany on Wednesday, August 19, and no, didn’t go to the show.

Well, at least we didn’t actually go inside the Times Union Center.

But there was so much excitement out on the streets in front of the arena that we really didn’t have to. After all, it’s pretty obvious that Adam Lambert is the only contestant in the history of the show that’s honestly worthy of the title “Idol” – or even rock star, for that matter.

But that didn’t stop the little girls outside the arena from clamoring for a peek at any of this year’s Top 10 – and hopefully snagging an autograph or even – OMG! – a kiss on the cheek.

Here's Gina from Montreal, and she's feeling pretty lucky.
