Adam Lambert

Worth WAY More than $80K

In Russia ... According to Lawsuit

Adam Lambert
would NEVER perform in Russia for less than $500,000 -- this according to a new lawsuit, in which a promotional company claims it was conned into thinking it could book him for a fraction of that price.

UK-based Madison Universal filed the lawsuit against a talent agency in Santa Monica named Family Productions -- claiming FP promised to broker a deal in which Adam would perform two concerts for $80,000 ... one in Ukraine and one in Russia.

Madison claims it paid FP a 10% deposit of $8,000 -- but FP didn't do squat to line-up the concerts ... so Madison tried to get its money back ... to no avail.

According to the complaint, Madison grew suspicious -- so it contacted Adam's agent Randy Salcedo at CAA -- who informed Madison that an $80,000 fee wouldn't cover a Lambert concert in Russia ... let alone an additional one in Ukraine.

According to the suit, the cost for flying Lambert out to Eastern Europe to perform is more accurately $500,000 ... or more.

Madison is suing FP for unspecified damages in excess of $25,000. Calls to FP were not returned.

HA! 80k is toooooo much for Adam Lambert for anything. What a waste of money. What is the world coming to when people are willing to pay to see that?

All you haters out there are sickening. You have nothing better to do with your time than bash an outrageously talented singer and a tremendously kind and humble individual. Jealousy is not pretty. Shame on you. Funny thing is I'm probably feeding into your sickness and you get off on this kind of malicious talk. So sad.

Amazing how this Russian Co. thought they could get someone who has sold nearly 2 million albums world wide (on his first album!) for 80,000K LOL!! Adam is suppose to be in Moscow singing with Queen anyway, so they are really nuts! That is like the people in Pensylvana who said they could get Gaga and Adam and started selling tickets. S*** bags!

Ye are all so gullable! I would say 80 to 150,000 is the average for adam. 500'000 is a huge amount of money for someone. Even if you are christina aguilera. This is a lame story with no basis in fact. He has major talent and this is his year. His new album is gonna hit No 1.

what about this 'article', we have comment from Euro Ent guy.
I translated it for you
'Alan (from EuroEnt company) comments about 500thousand$ article: Article is about nothing, don't pay your attention. Lambert is coming to Russia under a contract with the Queen, not a solo. '

Adam Lambert is worth every penney he charges for a concert. The man is the best male singer ever and he needs to travel with his band and other necessities. He is a perfectionist and gives a number 1 show. Other singers have asked for much more money for a concert and they are not in his league. Go Adam!
