Adam Lambert Comes to Fantasy Springs (Casino): Best Headline Ever
I don’t know what makes me giggle more — Adam Lambert playing a casino named Fantasy Springs or Adam Lambert making his big non-Idol superstar live concert debut at a random casino on February 27th.
Adam Lambert, and his makeup bag, are coming to the Special Events Center at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino for his first Coachella Valley concert at 8 p.m. Feb. 27.
Tickets for Lambert’s concert, who lost out to Kris Allen on “American Idol” last May, are priced from $39 to $79 and go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday at the casino box office and online.
Tickets for Earth, Wind and Fire on May 14, and Heart on May 29, both are priced at $49 to $79, will also start selling at 10 a.m. Friday.
Fantasy Springs Resort Casino is at 84245 Indio Springs Parkway in Indio.
Information: (760) 342-5000; (800) 827-2946; fantasyspringsresort.com.
Many casinos have top-notch concert facilities, so that’s not why I’m giggling. I’m just imagining what happens when the Indio, CA-gaming facility becomes Frautopia Springs. But hey, it is in the Coachella Valley, so maybe one day…eh? (OMG OMG OMG. Grace Jones AND Faith No More??? I may have to scrounge up more cash for another festival this year, ugh.)
Slot machines and sparkle cows! Tickets are $39 and $79 and they go on sale Friday. You can even buy an OMG ADAM LAMBERT PACKAGE. Silly. I bet I got you all excited now, didn’t I? If you go, I want to hear all about it. Starting at $489, you get a hotel room, some slots money, the whole shebang.
Even though he came in second place on season eight of American Idol, Adam Lambert’s name and his image is quickly becoming something of a household staple. The singer who brought Paula Abdul to tears with his on screen performance of “If I Can’t Have You” during a 2009 finals round now brings his Led Zeppelin-meets-Madonna-meets-Aerosmith-meets-David Bowie brand of rock to a special show at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino.
