Lambert Bumped from GMA Fall Concert Series Show Due to Controversial AMA Performance, 11/25

According to a Good Morning America audience coordinator, Adam Lambert's highly anticipated free concert in New York City tomorrow, November 25, has been cancelled due to thousands of complaints from viewers over his recent sexually explicit American Music Awards performance on Sunday. The concert was to be part of Good Morning America's "Fall Concert Series." 

Says an ABC spokeswoman: "Given his controversial American Music Awards performance, we were concerned about airing a similar concert so early in the morning."

Accordingly, Lambert fans received the following e-mail this morning:

Attn: Adam Lambert Fans (About the November 25,2009 concert):

The Adam Lambert Concert on Good Morning America at the Hudson Theatre has been officially cancelled. It is not necessary to come to the theatre because it will be closed. Thank you for your interest in the show and Adam Lambert. We look forward to your attendance at future events.

The concert was to have taken place at the Hudson Theatre on 44th Street, for upwards of 700 fans, to be aired on Good Morning America tomorrow morning. 

During the controversial American Music Awards performance, Lambert kissed his male keyboard player on one occasion, and rubbed another male dancer's face in his crotch on another, drawing thousands of complaints to ABC, which broadcast the awards event. 

The Good Morning America concert was scheduled as a promotional event for his new album For Your Entertainment, which dropped yesterday.

The young Los Angeles based singer made every song his own with a soaring vocal style that thrilled week after week. Adam is also is no stranger to the theatrical stage having gotten his early start behind the footlights. Adam Lambert appeared in WICKED twice, once with the touring company in March 2005 for a six month contract, and then opening in the sitdown Los Angeles production in February 2007 and remaining with the show until October 2008. For both engagements in Wicked, he was a member of The Ensemble and understudied the role of Fieryo, the show's love interest.
