Marquee Theatre had one of the most interesting crowds it has probably seen in awhile when Adam Lambert and Allison Iraheta came to town last night. The sold-out audience was a mix of glitter-covered cougars, teenage girls and gay men, and the eyeliner was out in full force.
After the 18-year-old Iraheta got everyone warmed up with an energetic set that had her jumping and moving around all over the stage, Glambert played for an hour, squeezing in multiple costume changes that had him donning everything from a giant feather-decorated hat to leather pants to sparkly coats. He may have looked flashy, but he delivered on the vocals, reaching the high notes his theater background has made him famous for.
Here's what some of the audience members Tweeted after the show, and you can bet a lot of people were typing with black fingernail polish on.
