Highlights

This is the first of Adam's two South African mini-tour concerts. The gig features a heavily reworked set complete with new songs, new costumes, dancers and props (including a straitjacket)!

  • The new/reworked songs:
    • With "Cuckoo" now performed early on the set, it no longer contains the band introduction but is performed in full.
    • "Pop That Lock" is no longer performed as a mashup.
    • The first live version of "Underneath" is sung with great emotional intensity.
    • The bridge of "Broken English" is performed with snatches of the "siren wailing".
    • "Outlaws of Love" is performed in reggae style segueing into "Is this Love".
    • Adam does not perform "Kickin' In". The song is performed by the divas while he does a costume change.
    • David Bowie's "Fame", which Adam once performed every night for the Idols tour makes a reappearance, serving as a nice treat for early and new fans.
    • "Strut", which was last performed publicly in Canada in 2011 (though has been performed privately later) also makes a reappearance.
    • A cover of Lenny Kravitz's "Are You Gonna Go My Way" is performed for the first time.
  • The dancers:
    • The gig marks the return of Terrance Spencer who danced for Adam during GNT.
    • The new addition to the team is Johnny Rice.
    • Both have a long history of friendship with Adam, and performed with him on "Kiss and Tell" at Club 740 years ago (November 21, 2008).
  • The costumes:
    • For the first part of the set, a blue suit with lightning bolt emblazoned on the back of the jacket. The divas (Reyna and Traci) wear blue wigs of the same colour.
    • Straitjacket over the blue outfit for "Cuckoo".
    • Jeans, black tank top and vest for the middle, slower section starting from "Whataya Want From Me".
    • Fringed arm sleeves with a black tank top, vest and lace-up crotch leather pants starting from "Fame"; the divas sport black Afro wigs.
    • A black and yellow striped leather jacket custom-designed by The Blonds, with yellow pants spray-painted with black stripes for "Trespassing". The dancers sport yellow Afro wigs.
