Fans in a fever as hot talents make concert stop By DAVID HENCH

… The concert is strictly performance, no competition. “It’s more stressful to be on the show,” Allison Iraheta said before the show. On tour, the contestants are a big dysfunctional family, she says with a chuckle – but they are all very supportive of one another.
Lambert, whose goth attire and powerful voice pushed the show’s boundaries, is friendly and engaging, happy to talk about how touring with a theater company in Europe for six months helped him discover himself, and how the underground, alternative scene in Los Angeles has kept him grounded. He is fond of Egyptian imagery, ever since his mother gave him a set of rubber stamps representing hieroglyphics.
Now, he sports an Eye of Horus tattoo on the inside of his wrist, and wears Egyptian-inspired jewelry.
For those interested, his ideal partner is someone with honesty, passion, creativity and loyalty and he values communication in a relationship.

• Adam Lambert, title TBA (Nov. 24): The “American Idol” runner-up is the most exciting contestant the show has seen in years, despite not winning the “Idol” title. For his debut, the glammy rocker has enlisted the help of Swedish pop mastermind Max Martin (Britney, Kelly Clarkson), among others.
‘AMERICAN IDOL’ OVERLOAD
• Another year, another crop of “American Idol” albums. Among them: Kris Allen, Title TBA (Nov. 17); Allison Iraheta, Title TBA (November TBA); Carrie Underwood, “Play On” (Nov. 3); Blake Lewis, “Heartbreak on Vinyl” (Oct. 6); David Archuleta, “Christmas from the Heart” (Oct. 13); and Katharine McPhee, “Unbroken” (Oct. 6).

Casino halls stay hot in fall By VINCENT JACKSON – thought this was interesting…

During the summer, the hall offered three music shows that appealed to slightly different audiences, but each brought thousands of people:
The American Idols Live! Tour, which came Aug. 7, appealed to a younger demographic as the fans of the two finalists – Kris Allen, 24, and Adam Lambert, 27 – flooded the hall.
