Global music star Adam Lambert kicked off “The Witch Hunt” Tour, and released his new song “Mad About The Boy.” He is also making a difference with the Feel Something Foundation.

Lambert is celebrating Halloween this year with “The Witch Hunt” Tour, which consists of eight nights of Lambert playing his hits and new music.

‘The Witch Hunt’ Tour

“The Witch Hunt” kicked off on Wednesday, October 19, at the Paramount Theater in Oakland, California, and it will be followed by stops down the coast of Southern California in Wheatland, Rancho Mirage, and Lambert’s hometown of San Diego.

The tour will wrap up in Hollywood, California, on Sunday, October 30, at the famed Hollywood Palladium, just in time for Halloween.

Lambert will also bring “The Witch Hunt” to the Encore Theater at Wynn Las Vegas for a three-show limited engagement on Oct. 26, 28, and 29, to celebrate Halloween weekend Las Vegas-style. 

‘Mad About The Boy’

On October 7, Adam Lambert released an updated cover of Noël Coward’s 1930s single “Mad About The Boy.” Lambert’s cover will serve as the theme song for the film Mad About the Boy – The Noël Coward Story, a feature documentary on the life of acclaimed playwright, songwriter, director, and performer Noël Coward, slated for a 2023 release.

According to a press statement, Lambert noted that Noel Coward was an inspiration to many, including himself. “I am thrilled to be able to sing the theme song about his story,” he said.

Background on Adam Lambert

Lambert was the runner-up winner of Season 8 of the reality singing competition “American Idol.” He went on to release his breakthrough studio album ”For Your Entertainment,”  which included the international hit single “Whatya Want From Me,” which earned him a Grammy nomination.

He followed this success with his sophomore studio album “Trespassing” which became the first album to reach the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 all-genre charts (in the United States and Canada) by an openly gay artist.

His highly anticipated third album “The Original High” was his first for Warner Bros. Records which was executive produced by Max Martin and Shellback and included the smash hit “Ghost Town.”

He joined the cast of Glee for a six-episode story in 2013 and performed the role of Eddie in Fox’s “The Rocky Horror Picture Show.” He went on to judge on “The X Factor Australia” where his artist, Isaiah, won the show.

In between touring the world with Brian May and Roger Taylor of Queen, Lambert has been exploring the world of film and TV with a cameo in the Oscar-winning film “Bohemian Rhapsody” as well as voicing the character ‘Emperor Maximus’ in the animated-live action hybrid movie “Playmobil: The Movie.”

At the beginning of 2020, Lambert launched the Feel Something Foundation, a non-profit organization in support of LGBTQ+ human rights. He subsequently released his collaboration single “Roses” featuring Nile Rodgers back in February 2020, which was a track from his album “Velvet.”

In October of 2021, Adam took over the Venetian Theatre in Vegas for a very special six-night run of shows. 

At the start of 2022, Adam joined the judging panel for the new ITV (UK) Saturday night entertainment show ”Starstruck” alongside Beverley Knight, Sheridan Smith, Jason Manford, and host Olly Murs.

Feel Something Foundation

The Feel Something Foundation is Adam Lambert’s non-profit organization in support of LGBTQ+ human rights.

This foundation aims to ensure support is given to the myriad of issues that continue to disproportionately affect the LGBTQ+ community, the foundation assists those charities that are moving the needle for communities of all ages and backgrounds.

These are organizations that have a mission or project directly focused on impacting the LGBTQ+ community in areas of education and the Arts, homelessness, suicide prevention, and mental health.

The launching of the foundation was the result of his music career traveling the world, meeting global members of the community, hearing their stories, and witnessing first-hand the difficulties LGBTQ+ people continue to face in all areas of life.

As a member of the LGBTQ+ community himself, and having engaged in charitable work and activism throughout his career, the Feel Something Foundation sees his philanthropy institutionalized into an organization with the goal of truly making a difference.

The Feel Something Foundation builds its revenue through the personal charitable contributions of its founder, directors, and with public funds raised through fundraising and awareness campaigns, events, and initiatives.

Lambert is developing a musical and he is writing all of the original music for it.
