Promoting his second album, Trespassing, Adam Lambert returned to the 852 as part of his "We Are Glamily" tour.

Instead of performing only his original songs, he included a range of covers - Bob Marley and the Wailers' Is This Love, Queen's Dragon Attack and Tears For Fear's Shout.

The concert opened with bright flashing lights resembling lightning, then Lambert burst out singing If I Had You. Fans started jumping up and down ecstatically, getting even more pumped up as he moved on to Fever, Pop That Lock and Cuckoo, singing along and trying to dance in the tight space.

To quiet things down a little, Adam performed a ballad-styled Whataya Want From Me, then moved on to sing Time For Miracles for the first time ever on the tour. He also did a funky reggae version of sentimental ballad Outlaws of Love, possibly the best performance of the night.

The band and dancers were incredible. Guitarist Tommy Joe Ratliff's hair was as sexy as ever, and backup singers Keisha and Reyna gave a great rendition of Kickin' In during Lambert's costume change.

As with the 2010 show, this was far too short to satisfy the Glamberts' hunger. Whatever happened to your plan to "party till they take us away", Adam?
