When going through the list of Adam Lambert’s currently scheduled tour dates, there are two that stand out immediately as unusual — if you look over on Adam Official, you will notice that the “If I Had You” singer has listed a spot on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on August 26 and “Oprah” one day later.
As lovely as it would be to assume that these two dates will feature new, previously-unaired performances by Adam, we have to instead look at things realistically. “Ellen” and “Oprah” do not traditionally being their fall seasons until after Labor Day, and there seems to be very little thinking that they will change it up here.
Therefore, we can look at an alternative situation here — that Adam is somehow filming appearances for the shows in late August in order for them to air later. However, there is even one problem with this — Adam will be in Virginia during these two days giving performances for the Glam Nation Tour. Considering that “Oprah” films in Chicago and “Ellen” in Los Angeles, this seems to be an unrealistic expectation that he could film in the morning, fly back to Virginia, and perform in the evening (even if it is technically possible).
The next solution is that Adam could be taping segments for the two shows during the announced days — though, if that were the case, why excite people with something they will not be able to see on that date?
Through this logic, it seems that the most likely answer to these new “dates” is that Oprah and Ellen are simply re-airing the episodes featuring Adam from the past year. Adam has another scheduled date on “Ellen” in July, and it is likely the same thing. There is always the possibility that something extraordinary could be happening, but for now all of the current signs seem to be pointing to a repeat airing (though if this changes, the story will be updated).
