Adam Lambert, Train to Headline Jenkinson's Summer Blast-Off Friday

Lambert just added to line-up of annual summer event

Powerhouse glam rocker Adam Lambert, the 2009 American Idol runner-up, has just been added to the line-up for 15th Annual Summer Blast-off on Friday morning.

The free event, scheduled from 6 to 10 a.m. and featuring performances by Lambert, Train and The Bobby Lynch Cover Band, will be hosted by Scott & Todd from the 95.5 FM WPLJ morning show, according to WPLJ.

The annual Jenkinson's summer kick-off typically draws huge crowds, and, in recent years, those who are serious about getting inside for the big-name concerts camp out as early as 9 p.m. the night before.

The concert is inside Jenkinson's Pavilion, which is large, but space is limited, said Marilou Halvorsen, Director of Jenkinson's Marketing.

For those who don't get inside, well, that's what sand chairs are for.

"A lot of people like to sit out on the beach and listen to the concert," Halvorsen noted.

News went out to Lambert fan clubs on Monday morning that he had just been added to the line-up of the popular event at Jenkinson's Boardwalk in Point Pleasant Beach.

Lambert went from being the first runner-up on American Idol's eighth season in 2009, when Kris Allen won, to a chart-topping, worldwide success as the dexterous rocker hand-picked by Queen to be their front man on tour dates in July, even as many compare his vocal strength and acrobatics to Queen's legendary Freddie Mercury.

He just performed at the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel on Sunday, released a new CD, Trespassing, on May 15 and, on his website, has just announced additional tour dates.

piecekeeper- No...they can do that at the polling place tomorrow, as long as it shows in the books that there's no party affiliation next to their name. Hope that doesn't upset you. . .That's why I asked if Barrella was going to become a Republican and vote for Loder. . .he's registered as an Independent. . .
Spooner June 05, 2012 at 02:55 AM
...oh one other point in this political gamesmanship. . .lets say Reid loses tomorrow. . .he can turn around and run as an Independent in November General election. . .then you could end up with possibly say Caldozo winning with Cortes or Loder or even Reid coming in...because now you have the entire electorate coming out to vote in a Presidential election after the summer and however that and the BW matters get or don't get resolved. . .So as they say. . .it ain't over to the fat lady sings(no gender intended)

The votes are in folks.....And you are correct.....Spooner resides in Point Boro. Remember this when he attacks our town with his incessant posts. Mike Corbally-nice to see a competent politician with a sense of humor! Kudos!

piecekeeper- a waste of time. . .Mr Flappy as usual is behind the times...or is it...the eight ball . . .Slappy/Flappy. . .we've been down this road with Barrella and Cathy Kelly here. . .but look I don't want to spoil your evening. . .we'll make it your revelation. . .just for you. . .Now does that make you happy. . .oh that's right you call yourself Mr Happy! Slappy. . .what happens on the BW affects the lives of the people in both towns. . . now don't use too much of your intelligence to figure how that is? PS: your getting to be a boor. . .you contribute nothing in the way of information or knowledge on issues. . .other than your personal pandering. . .

Hi Spooner-sorry to burst your bubble and expose you as a blogging carpet bagger, but you really shouldn't be meddling in another town's business to the extent you do-try to focus on your own town, I'm sure they have issues too. That's all. And take your alter ego,,,,,,,,uh, I mean your friend peacekeeper with you. Thanks!
