American Idol 2009 first runner-up Adam Lambert will visit Vietnam for a concert in Ho Chi Minh City next month.

Adam Lambert was born in Indianapolis but raised in San Diego. He began performing in amateur theatrical productions as a child, a path he pursued into adulthood, appearing in professional productions in the US and abroad.
Lambert became prominent after appearing on the 8th season of American Idol in 2009. Also that year, he released his debut album “For Your Entertainment,” which ranked number three on the Billboard 200, selling 198,000 copies in the US in its first week and reaching the top 10 in several countries worldwide. Its singles, "For Your Entertainment," "Whataya Want from Me" and "If I Had You" also became successes internationally.
His second album “Trespassing,” released on May 15, 2012, made its debut at the number one spot on the Billboard 200 album chart, also topping the Billboard Digital Albums Chart and Canada's Digital Albums Chart.
According to H-Artistry, renowned Portuguese soul singer Aurea and K-pop star NS Yoon G will also share the stage.
