Highlights

Possibly the hottest Glam Nation concert yet. The entire band, especially Adam, is on fire. This is Indianapolis, Adam's birth city and he delivers a worthy homecoming show. VEVO is at the venue tonight, filming the entire concert for its online concert series. The entire concert would subsequently be released on a best-selling concert DVD, "Glam Nation Live".

The highlights of the evening are a very fun "If I Had You" and a jaw-dropping "20th Century Boy".

During the band's introduction in "If I Had You", after Tommy's bass solo, Adam ups the raunchiness for the camera by stroking extensively on the neck of Tommy's bass guitar to the delight of the audience – until he finally cracks up in laughter. Moving over to Monte, who moves his guitar neck away in mock outrage, Adam swears, "I won't touch yours!"

Monte teases the audience at the start of "20th Century Boy" with a false start featuring the classic "Whole Lotta Love" riff. He then launches into the actual song with a menacing, dive-bomb on the guitar whammy. A funny moment is where cheerleader Adam skips onto stage to the familiar riffs of the song. The vocals on this song are extraordinary tonight, with some ridiculous vocal gymnastics towards the end as he kneels and backbends to the Monster's incendiary guitar playing.

Notables:

  • "Fever" features mouth-to-mouth shenanigans with Tommy and some particularly fierce, rhythmic dance movements
  • Fantastic vocals in "Sleepwalker", enhanced by a dramatic yet gorgeous guitar solo by Monte.
