Adam Lambert: Nesssun Dorma, Bologna 10/07/2022

Arrival ! I’m very touched by scenes like this – we all are. Strangely humbling and disarming.

To feel so much love is such a privilege. I also appreciate how respectful so many fans have been – mindful of our need to stay in a bubble to safeguard our shows on the rest of the tour from Covid. The emotions I feel are quite confusing. Because of Covid protocols, and because in many cases situations like this are impossible to linger in anyway, I end up being very isolated – insulated from the kind of human contact that we all yearn for. It’s an irony … to be so loved and yet so alone. But it means that the concerts themselves are the moments where the most intense contact happens through the music. I love to see people’s faces when we are in mid flight, playing our hearts out. To see faces and make eye contact, to see hands waving, hear screams of joy, is like nothing else on Earth. It’s a little less inspiring to be looking phone cameras, but I can understand …. and it’s even less helpful being confronted with messages like “Give me your sticks Roger” or “I need your pick Brian”. Especially when I can see that the boards they are holding up are obscuring the view of someone behind them. I will never encourage people to do that. I’ll always try to give a pick to someone who doesn’t ask. The greatest joy for us is to feel your participation and passion – see it and hear it in your voices – and there is no place in the world more passionate than ITALIA !!! Bless ya !
