Here’s something you probably didn’t know: Adam Lambert was the highest-earning American Idol alumnus of 2015. He made $10 million, more than Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson, Chris Daughtry or Jennifer Hudson.

Granted, a lot of that came from Lambert’s arena tour as the frontman for Queen. But that speaks to his still-enormous appeal, even years after he lost to Kris Allen on Idol’s eighth season.

So expect a frenzy among Lambert’s fans when tickets go on sale to his just-announced “Original High Tour,” which will hit Clearwater’s Ruth Eckerd Hall on March 14.

Tickets start at $40, and will go on sale at noon Saturday. Click here for details.

This will be Lambert’s third tour stop in Tampa Bay, following an appearance with American Idol’s live roadshow in 2009 and a postgame stop at Tropicana Field in 2010.
