Lambert coming "For Your Entertainment"

Adam Lambert is the latest in a string of "American Idol" stars who've made stops in the local area.

The runner-up of Season 8 "Idol," Lambert is one of the headlining acts at this year's K-Fest, put on by radio station WSPK, that's 104.7 on your FM dial. Among others, Lambert will share the stage with Ludarcis, Train — they just played The Chance in Poughkeepsie two weeks ago, btw — and Orianthi for the June 6th show at Fishkill's Dutchess Stadium. Tickets for the all-day concert at the ballpark range from $44 to $100; you can click here for more information about tickets.

Lambert's first post-"Idol" CD, entitled "For Your Entertainment," currently ranks No. 133 on Amazon's list of CDs.

During last season, Lambert's fan base was evident as I learned here on "Sean's Space." I put up my annual Who will win "American Idol?" poll and Lambert got 70 percent of the vote, with almost 2,300 fans voting for him to take the "Idol" title. A Lambert victory on "Idol" seemed an inevitability, according to the fans voting here, before more of Kris Allen's fans flooded the phone lines to make their fav the champ. Since then, Lambert's gone on to play at the American Music Awards and at Z100's annual "Jingle Ball" concert, among other high-profile shows.

In the past, I've interviewed "Idol" champs like David Cook and Taylor Hicks, not to mention finalists like Kellie Pickler, Clay Aiken and Blake Lewis — Lewis, in fact, performed at the 2008 K-Fest — and they've all had great things to say about their time on the hit FOX show.
