Adam Lambert 

When: Sat., Sept. 11, 9 p.m. 2010
Phone: 1-800-745-3000

When season eight American Idol runner-up Adam Lambert performed on the American Music Awards last November, the leather-clad, glam-pop performer managed to make out with a male keyboardist, grab the crotch of a dancer, and simulate oral sex with another.

And that was all in less than five minutes while he performed his first single, the campy dance track “For Your Entertainment.” Conservative types immediately flooded ABC with complaints, but the liberal crowd lauded Lambert for having the courage to challenge old-fashioned ideals of what’s acceptable on network TV.

Lambert later told Rolling Stone: “Female performers have been doing this for years — pushing the envelope about sexuality — and the minute a man does it, everybody freaks out. … My goal was not to piss people off, it was to promote freedom of expression and artistic freedom.”

Lambert will be stopping at Harrah’s Casino on his Glam Nation tour with fellow Idol Allison Iraheta on Saturday, September 11th. Expect guyliner, shiny boots, high notes, and plenty of envelope-pushing. — Bianca Phillips
