DAVID ARCHULETA

David Archuleta’s MKOC Tour is Here!!!

Posted by bebereader on Sunday, November 27, 2011

Who’s feeling anxious and excited with David? Yeah, me too! His first stop on the My Kind of Christmas Tour was the last stop on his Christmas From the Heart Tour two years ago: The Theater at Westbury in Westbury, New York.

I’ve been to this venue many times and I like it because it’s different. The theatre is in the round, the stage is in the center, and the audience sits around it. It has a nice intimate feel.

I took a ride to Westbury about two weeks ago to scout the area for restaurants for before or after the show.

I found a place nearby in walking distance, in case you get there early and want to hang out or grab a bite to eat before the show. They close at 8pm.

Brush Hollow Deli and Pizzeria
990 Brush Hollow Road
Westbury, NY 11590
516/334-4242 or
516/334-2992

For after the show there’s a 24/7 diner about four minutes away by car. It’s called Broadway Diner on North Broadway in Hicksville. Hope we can get a group together even for a little while, after the show.

287 N. Broadway
Hicksville, NY 11801
(516) 681-3982

www.broadwaydiner.net

Directions to Broadway Diner from venue:  Make right out of parking lot. Go down to the light. Stay to the right. Make a right turn on North Broadway. Diner is 1/8 of a mile on left side.

Hope to see a lot of you there to meet and decompress 

after this first show of the tour! Are y’all ready for this? Well, GET READY cause here he comes!

  1. There will be 4 of the faithful coming down together (flying is more like it) from Connecticut. We… just…can’t…wait…
    It will be so good to see everyone again. For me it’s been since MOTAB which is wayyy too long. See y’all there.

    Good morning. I haven’t found the words to tell all of you how much the prayers, condolences and notes that were sent to me made me feel loved and cared for. The death of my husband of 25 years was so sudden I didn’t know if I was coming or going – still don’t. This community is so much more than a fan site – it’s family. Thank you a million times for everything.

    I was going to the Salt Lake concert but have canceled, so I have a ticket on the 8th row and reservations at The Plaza for Sunday and Monday nights. I will gladly send the ticket to anyone who wants one and the reservation if you need it.

    Again thank all of you so much for the card and all your prayers and especially the heartfelt love. I will never forget.

    Thanks Bebe for the info and Angelica for the awesome art ;)

    I am on that flight with Mari ;) Thanks Pilot Mari for the lift! It’s great to have fan friends to share the experience of a concert. My pilot determines where I go after the concert. LOL Some have to get back for pets and work on Friday. Now all we need is the VIP letter so we can plan a time to leave CT.

    I have been busy doing some screen caps from the Behind The Scenes videos. I’ll post some later today.

    Here is a tease ;)

    Hooked..I am so sorry about your husband…I will keep praying for you.

    I am so excited for the My Kind of Christmas tour. After seeing David again at the signing I am even more “on top of the world”!. He has certainly got me in the mood for Christmas. I never put my decorations up till the middle of Dec but they are just about all up now. Yay!
    I first start “my kind of Christmas tour” by meeting my friend Linda C. in Cedar City on Dec. 10th then enjoy the SLC concert with my husband and neighbors plus meeting many of my David friends. What a treat. I wish all of Davids fans could experience My Kind Of Christmas this year.

    Here’s wishing all of you a wonderful Dec and then a wonderful year ahead with many more David gatherings!

  5. amb4da said

    Hooked…I am so very sorry to hear about your husband and what must be the toughest of times for you…I will keep you in my prayers.

    Bebe and gang…I woke like a kid at Christmas today myself…who cannot contain her excitement for this week, and yet wants it to all go by slowly, so it’s not OVER too soon!!

    I am so excited; I will be at Westbury too and cannot wait (I too love that venue, and haven’t been in years)…hoping to see some of you. I am coming from CT too (you mean there ARE some of you here?!…or

    maybe you’re just passing through.) I’ll be coming up with the bf,
    but he’s passing on the show (silly man)…so if anyone knows anyone who wants to be there and can stand sitting next to a uber gleeful adult female, I have a 13th row seat, I think section C (I still have to print the tix!!) Then on to PA and meet up with a DApal there.

    Anyhoo, just needed some peeps to Squee with today, and I just knew when I came here we’d all be on the same page.

  6. skydancer1x said

    Great info Bebe♥ I have always loved theater in the round, it does feel so much more intimate.Can’t even imagine what ya’ll are feeling right now, just days before you see and hear David!!
    ok, that’s not true YES I CAN!! Squeeeeeeeee!! I am so excited for all of you and so wish I was going to Westbury! I am waiting to live the concert through you all,and those who never fail to thrill us all with their ninja videos,and camera skills ♥
    Got a feeling this is going to be an epic tour!!!

    Thank you Abrra, looking forward to more eye treats. Take your time and enjoy your day…no hurry.. (pant,pant,pant,pant wuuf! wuuf!)

    seriously, I just tried striking his pose with my fingers bent like that.. OW! do not try this (moronic move unless you are young and flexible, which I am neither.)

    Looking forward to David on TV in just a few hours!!♥:)

    ♥ Hooked,God bless you, and your family. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers, through this holiday season♥♥♥

    #3—Tease is right!!! More tease , please! 8O

    OMG– I want to pinch his cheeks. ;)

    Now here are the instructions to all you so very lucky concert attendees.

    No excuses will be accepted.– Buy a note pad and sharpen up your pencils ( NO lip liner), so you can take notes about anything you see or hear or even smell — before–during–and after the concert, because he has been known to rattle brains to the extent of total forgetfulness—complete blackout——-total unrecall!!

    Somebody bring a recorder ( small tape recorder will do, maybe your phones do this–what do I know? )–and tape some of the spazzing between fans at your get togethers. 8) Interesting for chat………..cause what happens in chat -stays in chat.

    Don’t forget to turn around at some point and get some video or pictures of the stunned audience.

    Abs—because you are only going to be an observer at the VIP- ( I think) I will expect a lot to be written by you, unless you go blind–because you stared at him too long.

    We Archu-NOTS are looking forward to every little word you can come up with in your re-caps.

  8. Abrra said

    Drill Sgt. Dak

    “Abs—because you are only going to be an observer at the VIP- ( I think) I will expect a lot to be written by you,”

    I just might experience total memory loss. You know Archu-mind wipe?

    It could happen ;)

    Theresa, I can’t even imagine. Please know that we’re all here if you need a little loving distraction. Sending prayers your way ♥

    Angelica, love the picture up top.

    Bebe, our concert aficionada! So exciting! The venue looks beautiful. I wish I could see you, Abrra and Angelica meet for the first time. SF, Marcia, SB, and anyone else who witness the meeting let me know all about it.

    And then David, my heart is so swelled with pride and admiration for everything he is.

    Don’t forget to watch Pandora’s today!!!!!

    Whoa!! Abrra you are ruthless today. Those pics are lethal.

    The interview on Mormon Times was beautiful.

  14. bebereader said

    Hooked,

    So glad you stopped by. I’m continuing to keep you and your family in my prayers, especially during the holiday season.

    Pandora is on! Saw the promo on NBC and David on my big screen!

    Also counting down the days until Thursday!
    Squeeeeeeee!

    I really like the Westbury venue! David must too, since he booked it again this year for his first show on the tour.

    Looking forward to seeing Mari and djbell, Abs, amb4da and SF, SB, Angelica. I know there are more of you! Please come out and let us know you’re going to Westbury!

    Nanaweize,

    The holidays seem closer than they really are, thanks to David. I’m already playing Christmas music!

    Amb4da,

    If you want to squeeee, this is the place to be! I’m already bouncing off the walls and ceiling! haha I will highlight the portion of your comment that contains info on the extra ticket you’re offering to Westbury.

    Sky and Dak!

    How I wish you were coming too! xoxo

    dja,

    Thanks for the Mormon Times video!

    Abs,

    Keep up the good work with the screencaps. He’s so tantalizing. He has 1,000 faces and they’re all beautiful. Glad you caught some that I had my eye on too. There’s something about David in camouflage that has me transfixed.

    Back to the show!

    I walked into the house from work, turned on the tv the second I got in at 4:15, and there he was, singing, bigger than life.
    It’s been too long since we could turn on the tv and see/hear him.
    HE SOUNDED AND LOOKED BEAUTIFUL. That TBWY about killed me.
    My husband turned to me and said “Mini Elvis”.(I have never ever mentioned any Elvis reference to him, I wouldn’t. Maybe it’s the age difference between us)
    He also wanted David to sing every song, lol. Me too.

  29. betsy said

    #27 Good Lord, Abs.

  30. Angelica said

    Hooked #2,

    Good to see you dear lady. Our thoughts and prayers will be with you during this difficult period. God bless you and your family and yes, you are family here. (((hug)))

    I recorded the ice show and will watch it shortly. I did watch TBWY per Karin’s vid and it was breath-taking! I have a hard time watching him on TV. Brings back anxiety deja vu AI. So I just record it and watch when I hear everything went well.

    Packing now for Westbury and points beyond! I have just 2 days more to work and then leaving on Wednesday around noon! Gaaaaaahh!!! I don’t know what I’m doing. Photobucket

  31. dakgal said

    #28 Yah Betsy–way too much skating and music without David.

    Man, does that drummer ever get a workout.

    Now to go watch again on my DVR. Yippee!! I’ll skip to the good parts.

    #27–Some dang good lookin nostrils too. ;)

    Gah! David! on TV!

    Missed chat last night – dang it!

    Angelica – I’ll be sending you an email about the Irving Plaza “after party” :-)

  34. silverfox said

    David was once again magnificent! His vocals are beyond amazing and as I listened to him today, I was taken back to 2008 when we all knew he was special and would continue to bring thrills & chills with each & every performance. He has not and never has disappointed. There are almost no words to express the wonder David is. He is The Voice.

    The last song he sang, Above The Northern Lights is my new favorite Christmas song. It’s a beautiful song to be sure, but David added another dimension with his superb vocals. He made it truly soul-stirring, spell-binding and stunning.

    And of course, the camera loves him. His beauty shines through the TV screen and his eyes sparkles like diamonds. He is, quite simply, a beautiful man.

  35. betsy said

    David’s reunion with the camera ♥
    It sure loves him.
    Angelica, I think this was the first time I didn’t have any anxiety for David. None at all. And I always do. I wonder what that’s about.
    His face. I can’t.

  36. ray said

    glady you all are still alive after that class act,.that northren lights was just ,…….no words good enough to descript that.

  37. amb4da said

    This was the perfect day for Pandora to air, as Christmas starts to fill the air in Davidland..

    Beautiful show all around…should have recorded this one!
    Brian Boitano has always been one of my favorite skaters…Mannheim was awesome all the way through…loved the different songs and takes on traditional songs…oh yea…and then there was that young guy from Idol, Season 7! :)

    David, David….Class act. Gentleman all the way. Mr. Man, in his sharp-dressed wool jacket seemed a tad serious to me tonight…studied, precise. Loved him playing piano on TBWY (duh, Abrra, no wonder “snow” stuck out to me!) WCIT opening was beautiful…my favorite Christmas song. That different song he sang, I already forgot the name, but the “High above” one…was heavenly. The Silent Night humming…hard to hear just him (unusual) but loved the overall effect. And always…love Pat-A-Pan. Nice show!

    Abrra… #16..Emergency Broadcast System?!! The world better be ENDING if they ever do that to me. No, even then…I’d want to be hearing David, uninterrupted, before we all went down!
    #17…great pic spam….love that top pic.

  38. amb4da said

    SF #34…”Above The Northern Lights”…yea…THAT song! …was beautiful.

  39. Dayzee said

    TY TY TY Dang that is one great picture! Christmas is here for sure. Opening all my presents.

  40. betsy said

    Abs, thanks for the heads up on the lyric change. I never even noticed.
    (Should I turn in my fan card?) lol
    He is an absolute genius. Genius I tell ya.

    “And I’ve been waiting for the snow to falllllll”

    Kind of going a little crazy here.

    Just watched. He was magnificent. Lower register on Northern Lights was unbelievably beautiful and the melody was haunting.
    What Child is This was so warm and chilling at the same time. I think the skating performances to these two songs were excellent and a beautiful accompaniment to what he achieved: Perfection.

  43. Abbra – Couldn’t adjust the volumn when recording on my computer/tv. Thus wasn’t able to really hear the depth of his voice. Saved me again – thanks for mp3′s.

  44. Pattirae said

    Theresa,

    I have been out of commission for over three weeks now (side effects from radiation) and have not been on the computer until tonight. Shawna had told me about you losing your husband and I have felt so sad about it. I LOVED getting to know you in Arizona at the Constitution Fair and getting to spend so much time with you. I was hoping to see you in SLC but now I will just look forward to another time. I send you my deepest love at this time.

    Coming here tonight and watching all of these videos of David has me quite emotional as I have missed all things David and being here with all of you. Like Theresa said, we are now FAMILY and it is so heartwarming to feel each other’s love all the time.

    My husband’s brother passed away and his funeral was yesterday. Our cousin Ron Gunnell (who has been with David all week at his interviews and signings) was at the funeral and we talked about David for quite a while. Ron admires David so much and always tells me how much he is loved by everyone (as if I didn’t already know.) He promised me that he would take me back stage to be with David after the show at Abravanal Hall. We’ll see what happens. Ron went to his car and brought in a bunch of Glad Christmas Tidings DVD’s to pass out to family members. He is so generous that way and the family was thrilled to receive one.

    A belated Happy Thanksgiving to each of you—-hope you all counted your blessings, as we did.

    Love you,
    Pattirae

  45. djafan said

    I have literally been laid out by The Archuleta. Who the heck is he? Every song, every note, every camera angle was perfection.

    SF, it feels like we’re entering a new phase or the twilight zone lol. David is beyond amazing.

    Bebe thank you for the tweets, I saw you and me on twitter going at it lol.

    Abrra, those screenshots, no words.

    Pattirae, I’ve been keeping up on your blog and let me tell you again that I feel blessed to have met you, to have had some of your light shine upon me. You are remarkable. I hope you do get to see David backstage, just a little request tell us all about it ♥

    Leave a comment at MJ’s if you care to. :)

  46. jans11 said

    Hooked, so sorry to hear about your loss. It’s so hard to lose a loved one, bless you and your family.

    Holiday on Ice was blacked out here in KC because of the football game. Good thing there is youtube!! He was stupendous, as usual!! Love Above the Northern Lights with David singing it…it was beautiful!!! The will be a rerun on Ovation tv channel 274 on Direct tv on Dec 3rd at 7pm. Gotta WAIT another week now to watch the whole thing!!

  47. skydancer1x said

    I mean what do you say after that??
    I have replayed and replayed his parts, and he really had good TV stage time, compared to his other TV performances since Idol don’tcha think.I think MS just fell in love with him..
    43. Angelica,”perfection”. thats all.

    SF,”And of course, the camera loves him. His beauty shines through the TV screen and his eyes sparkles like diamonds. He is, quite simply, a beautiful man.”
    Betsy, smart husband:)
    37. Amb4da David, David….Class act. Gentleman all the way. Mr. Man, in his sharp-dressed wool jacket seemed a tad serious to me tonight…studied, precise.
    I thought that too, but you said it so perfectly!…studied, precise.
    Bebe♥, can you put me in your suitcase please, I promise I won’t take up too much room!
    Abrra,thank you for all these screencaps today!!!!! they are all so delicious! I feel like a kid in a candy store, I’ll take that one and that one and that one and that one….sigh

  48. jans11 said

    #45-Pattirae. It is good to see you in the comments today and hate to hear that you’ve been down and out. Hope everything works out ok for you, you are a beautiful person, inside and out, and I hate to hear what you have to go thru. It was so nice to meet you in AZ, you are amazing! And I hope you get to go back stage to see David, you so deserve it. That’s the concert I’m coming to, so I hope to see you again.

  49. Heidijoy said

    Hooked and Pattirae, Good to see you here. You have both been in my prayers and will continue. Sorry you won’t be at SLC Teresa but certainly understand. Hope to see you Pattirae. Nice to have the behind the scenes info on David.

    Excited for the MKPC tour to start. Anxious for the reports for the beginning of Tour.

    Loved the show today!!

    Pattirae, I’ve also been praying for you and hope to meet you at Abravanel Hall (looks like it’s almost sold out!!!!!)

    I don’t know how to bring this over to The Voice, but FanScene now has PlatinumArchie’s vid of “Above the Northern Lights”…..camera on David the entire time—-oh my!!!!!!!!!! Today’s gorgeous ice show, the 3 amazing Asia videos yesterday, all the promo last week……and, before we know it, #1 Tour show at Westbury……..wake up America—wake up world—-being a fan of David is one of life’s greatest joys!!!!!!!!!

  55. Angelica said

    Thanks, TXNancy!

  56. bebereader said

    Amb4da mentioned how serious David was on tonight’s show. Maybe but I saw it as a more mature David, acting very much a 21 year old or even a 25 year old and a well-seasoned performer.

    Like Silverfox I’ve become a fan of “Above the Northern Lights”. I was in the other room when the song started so I heard David before seeing him on screen. Not realizing it was him in his lower register, I thought hmmm that voice is beautiful! LOL Of course it was David; nobody else affects me that way.

    Pattirae, Was so happy to see your name appear in the comments. Been following your blog and you’re an inspiration to us all. Hoping you get to go backstage and see David at the Christmas show. Fingers crossed and many blessings. :)

    Sky I can’t put you in my suitcase as I’m not staying over but I can put you in my pocket. LOL :)

    HeidiJoy, I was sent 2 tickets for Sunday’s MoTab. Do you still need them? If so, please contact me at Bebereader@aol.com.

    And I have to tell you guys, I am so lost amidst the northern lights I may never be found. It’s a beautiful place and I want to stay. Gaahh … his voice on this is just heavenly. ♥ I can’t get enough of it. ♥

    So good to see Hooked, Pattirae and SF here.
    A trio of terrific ladies I shared a wonderful time with in Arizona. So sorry to hear of your trials. Hoping for the best for each of you.

    I found myself mesmerized by the knees in Pat-a-Pan at #57. Something new for me but there they were, just bouncing around and being quite captivating. So grateful for all of you who bring us these pics and vids.

    Hi all,
    I will be at the Ventura concert on the 16th. I am going with my daughter who has to work that day from 8 a.m. to 7pm. Then we have to hope she doesn’t have any emergencies (she is a vet). I would love to find someone to spend some time with that Friday, as I will be hanging out all day while she works. I am very excited. I haven’t seen David live,,,,, oh my.

    David Archuleta: the Eagle, the temple and the music
    By Trent Toone, Deseret News

    Polishing off a turkey sandwich during an interview, Archuleta described how honored he was to be invited to sing with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir he grew up admiring.

    “It was an out-of-this-world experience,” Archuleta said. “Taking it in, singing, being there … It was cool.”

    December 2010 is also special to Archuleta for another reason. It was last year, in between concert rehearsals with the choir, that the young Mormon celebrity received his Eagle Scout Award.

    “I am so happy I did it,” Archuleta said. “I was far from the best Scout when I started. I wasn’t motivated at all, but … then I came back and got it. I was really happy I did.”

    Archuleta credits his Murray neighbor and former Scout leader, Cal Madsen, for encouraging and helping him to attain the highest rank for a young man in the Boy Scouts of America program.

    “I paid him to say that,” Madsen said with a laugh. “It’s a real credit to him. His dad also encouraged him. Archuleta took it upon himself to finish it. It was something he always wanted to do, but with his music and competitions, he didn’t think he would get there. But he followed up and worked hard enough to finish it.”

    very nice article Abrra.and pics♥ Bless his big ol’Eagle Scout heart!!

    and this!
    “If asked to participate on “Dancing with the Stars,” he would “probably perform really bad. Maybe if I had a good trainer,” he said, “It would be interesting.”
    Interesting!???eeeeeeeeeeeek!

  74. MT said

    Sky and Dja, haha Nice to know I have company up there. :D

    Abrra, thanks for the pics and the link. I read the rest of the article.

    My favorite part >> “Madsen saw Archuleta throwing snowballs with his family outside their house.”

  75. angelofdja said

    Oh Sky! David on DWTS? It would be the highest rated season ever! Where do we sign-him-up? LOL! :wink:
    I’m looking forward to viewing and squeeing over all the videos and pictures from David’s performances! PLEASE feel free to share every little detail, as I believe this is going to be one heck-of-a-tour!

  76. bebereader said

    MT, He’s so real, throwing snowballs like that with his family and polishing off a turkey sandwich. But I don’t want to see him on Dancing With The Stars, unless he sings. He should be on DWTS, performing “Wait” while the cast is dancing onstage.

    Fingers crossed, the weather conditions for this week in NY are looking very good!!!

    76. Bebe,
    LOL Yeah, I can just see him polishing off that sandwich. The guy likes his food. haha

    And > “But I don’t want to see him on Dancing With The Stars, unless he sings.” I just don’t see it happening. Not with our shy guy. But I would like to hear him sing on the show. Love having David on my TV.

    And speaking of Wait, the video should be coming out soon. :)

  78. betsy said

    Eeeek! No! I couldn’t take it if he danced on that show. He SHOULD sing on it though. Others without a tenth of his talent have. Remember when they used his version of Imagine to dance to? Beautiful.

  79. jans11 said

    I’d like to see him dance on DWTS…then I could see him on tv every week!!

  80. Dear Abrra,

    Where is the video?? Upload, STAT! ;)

    Seriously? ;)

  83. bluesky said

    82 Abrra:

    Amen.

  84. skydancer1x said

    haha! DWTS would certainly take David out of his comfort zone, but I have no doubt he could handle it ;)
    He is such a natural in his moves..and with his Mom being a dancer! wow.
    could see him working with Chelsea She is sweet, and cute as a button. I am sure they would love having David on there, the ratings would sure shoot out the roof!
    As David put it “Maybe if I had a good trainer,” he said, “It would be interesting.”
    I say never underestimate the Archuleta! He is full of surprises.Regardless, I would love to see them at least extend the invite to him,for singing, or for dancing.♥ sigh♥ a girl can dream can’t she? ;)

  85. Abrra on #82 – then he won’t be able to dance. He would just cover her! w/ a cloak perhaps? Dance or not, I will be contended just seeing him on TV even if he is just in the audience.

    And yes mam! Been uploading… Unfortunately am in a hotel where the wifi sucks… I miss my broadband at home (sniffle)

    David Archuleta: Christmas better spent with the family

    Like most everybody, David Archuleta will be home for Christmas no matter how busy he is.

    “Christmas is better spent with the family,” David confessed during an exclusive 15-minute phone interview with Funfare in connection with the Glad Christmas Tidings album (released locally by Ivory Music & Video) which was recorded as live during a series of concerts with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir in December last
    year at Temple Square in Salt Lake City, with Michael York as special guest. “That’s why I make it a point to drop everything and be with my folks during the holiday season. It’s a family tradition, you know.”

    Image and video hosting by TinyPic

    Bells of Temple Square were also at the concerts that, according to the Music & Video background material, “gloried in the old-time pioneer Christmases of centuries past, thrilling a combined audience of more than 80,000” in the Conference Center at temple Square. The event brought the audience back to yesteryear when the season “evoked the glow of candles and log fires, the smell of fir trees and the frosty wideness of star-filled winter skies.”

    The Mormon Tabernacle Choir performs While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks, Away In A Manger, and majestic choruses by Mozart and Vaughn Williams, and closes with a breath-taking rendition of Angels, from the Realms of Glory. (Michael York narrates an account of John Parry, a Welshman who as both a mason and a musician played an important role in the beginnings of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.)

    David is the youngest singer to have headlined the choir’s holiday concert, joining award-winning performers in the honor roll including Natalie Cole, Angela Lansbury, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Audra McDonald and Bryn Terfel.

    Excerpts from our exclusive interview (with David who was at the historic Tabernacle on Temple Square in Salt Lake City where they were pre-taping Joy To The World for the tour):

    How was it working with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir?

    “It was an amazing experience. Every night, there were more than 21,000 people in the audience. The whole choir was just really BIG! It was one of the best performances I ever had in my life.”

    You and the choir will be featured in a TV special, right? It’s going to be shown throughout the US this month. Tell me about the TV special.

    “People who won’t be able to watch it on TV don’t have to worry because if they buy the CD, it comes with a DVD of the TV special which will make them feel as if they were at the actual concert.”

    Did you have a hand in choosing the songs for the album?

    “I sang five songs in the whole event. One of them is Los Pastores a Belen. I sang the song in Spanish because I wanted to show my Latino heritage. The four other songs, with new arrangements, were Silent Night and The Cat and the Mouse Carol which I did solo; and Joy To The World and Gesu Bambino which I sang with the choir.”

    As a kid, what was your favorite Christmas song?

    “Silent Night. I just love Silent Night.”

    Do you spend Christmas now in a different way from how you did when you were not yet famous?

    “You know, these past few years I’ve been too busy working and travelling but as in the past, I make sure that I’m home for Christmas.” (Proceeds to sing I’ll Be Home For Christmas). “There’s nothing more meaningful than spending Christmas with your family.” (And then he sings again, “I’ll be home for the holidays…”)

    How do you spend Christmas?

    “We usually go to my grandpa’s house. We have family picture. That’s some kind of a family tradition. We have some kind of a talent show where members of the family compete against each other. Then we exchange stories. It’s fun getting the family together. That’s why I love Christmas.”

    What’s your most memorable Christmas?

    “I think it was last year. We had a lot of relatives visiting from out of town, from all over the US. They came to watch the Mormon Tabernacle Choir concert and then they stayed for Christmas.”

    What’s the most memorable Christmas gift that you’ve received in all your life?

    “When I was a kid, my aunt gave me a computer game. I really loved it! I remember how much fun I had playing the game.”

    Are you expecting any special gift from anybody this Christmas?

    “Uhm, I’m not really expecting anything. It’s usually I who give gifts. I can’t think of anything that I want. I’m happy with what I have.”

    And what you have is so many, so much.

    “You know, when the fans give me presents, they really give a lot. Hehehehe!”

    What gift are you preparing for your special someone, if you have any?

    “Actually, I’m not very keen about giving gifts. But I’ll try to look for something that I can give to my sisters and my brother.”

    What about Charice, your friend? Aren‘t you giving her something this Christmas?

    “I haven’t given gifts to my friends before. More than giving gifts, I usually pay them a visit. For me, the best gift is when you go visit someone. Either it’s I visiting my friends or it’s them visiting me.”

    Would you like to greet your fans here in the Philippines?

    “Hello to all my fans in the Philippines. I hope you have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Happy holidays!”

    I’m on overload! Between the concert on Thursday, the new vlog, acting lessons, a new video in a few weeks, new singles, a new Christmas song…how much more can a fan take? Bring it, David! We can take Everything and More! *ahem*

    Betsy#89 Thanks for posting the link to another great interview by Brian Mansfield of USA Today. David sounds in charge even though he’s not with a label. Since the traditional way doesn’t always work, he’s trying something else. Releasing singles might very well be the way to go for young musicians who have to put up with a crazy record business. He’s not the first artist who is going this route.

    Rapture!!! Is that you? Been wondering how you’ve been and then your name pops up here! Must mean I’m going to meet you at Westbury this week! :) Hope you get a ticket; I know some are still available from the venue. See Amb4da’s comment #5 about a ticket to Westbury!

  109. Yes, he will be talking to us again on tour…” Oh! You’re ALL here!”… ( well except no djafan on the east coast)…

    One Christmas fruit cake to make, a house to clean, dogs to shower with attention, get up at 5 AM!! Fly there, catch a sleep hopefully and then I will be seeing you! My phone bill will be far less because admins and writers will be there!!

    To everyone at home I am certain that we will be sharing in the festivities that will keep you very busy! Ninjas will be all over the place so rest up, there will be so much to see…

    For some reason he is anxious and I am anxious and I don’t really know why.

    DWTS, mixed feelings. But if he did it, I can see me suddenly turning into my mother – a don’t-you-even-think-about-calling/visiting-during-DWTS fanatic. If you do…it better be life or death. Even has her own rating system.

    Above The Northern Lights, breathtaking. First class, first rate performances.

    dja, idk why but I liked seeing that minute flash of frustration, lol

    Grrrreat interview! Fun tour, new song!
    “There might be some fun little projects to try out that I might want to get ready for,” ….yeah, just casually throwing that out there :p

    Hi girls, I found an interview of “THE OBSERVER OF UTAH” published today, made by Cecilia Skinner.
    This interview is made and published in Spanish. It is very difficult for me to translate a paragraph from Spanish to English.
    There are many interesting and revealing things in the responses of david.
    The last question and response is the most important, perhaps david, he heard the wishes of the whole world and get a surprise next year.
    I hope you enjoy this interview.

    ONE ON ONE WITH ARCHULETA

    His image reflects what is within your being. Regardless of the fame that comes over their shoulders, then stood out on “American Idol”, David Archuleta, moves on retaining its particular strength in humility and values ​​as an individual.

    With sales of millions of copies of his albums, for Archuleta, being famous does not mean changing your way of being, nor their lifestyle, is the opposite: it is to succeed remain the same, to reach people with songs that inspire and uplift the self.

    The Observer from Utah, had the opportunity to speak with Archuleta, on their way through Salt Lake as part of the launch of its CDs and DVDs for Christmas. Last year was a special guest to sing with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir of the Church of Jesus Christ LDS, and this year they released the CD of your presentation.

    For Archuleta, was a dream come true. Whenever you need to think and find himself or be inspired, hear the Tabernacle Choir. I listen every Sunday and while preparing to go to Temple.

    Considers that the opportunity he had to sing in the choir company, has been one of the most special occasions in your life.

    What is Christmas?
    It is the best time of year. It is time to remember the birth of Christ and celebrate the gift of life given to us.

    During this time of year, everyone will feel good and I think that is the spirit of gratitude in the air. All feel. We all want to give the best of ourselves. We all want to show our love for others. There is no other festival like this all year. It is the time of year I enjoy most.

    What are you doing for Christmas?

    Usually the family way. I visit my father and have dinner with them, play, sing, talk about the birth of Jesus Christ and try to have a good time.

    With my mother, usually eat something typical, dance, sing, play, dedicate time to my family.

    I take this time to relax, get closer to my younger brothers, talk and play games with them.

    Also, I meditate a lot about the blessings I’ve received in my life and what I am expected to do with my talents.

    What do you think about the family?

    The family is the most valuable thing I have in my life. I think it is no coincidence that we have been born within a particular family.

    Knowing that I have brothers and sisters who have my same genes, the same blood, which are part of my life is wonderful. They are beings who for some reason, had to be part of me.

    I have a very good relationship with my brothers, but are very different from each other. We all grew up with the same teachings, with the same heritage, grew up in the same house together.

    I think one of the reasons why we are so united, it is because we have each other.

    Now I’m living away from them, I realized that they form a large part of my life and have influenced me in so many ways.

    Like big brother, I feel a great responsibility to my brothers, of always being there when I need and be someone they can trust.

    What are your immediate plans in their career?

    One of the things I most want to do is be involved in a more directly with the Hispanic community.

    I love the Hispanic culture and I owe him great things. I want to sing more in Spanish, as well as to write some of my songs

    I would love to start a tour dedicated to Hispanics and visiting Spanish speaking countries. This is another of my dreams that I very soon reached.

    I write and perform more inspirational music to help people feel special and that no matter what is around him, may feel that they are different and valuable.

    Betsy #113,

    The possibilities are endless!

    Danny Zuko in Grease… Can you imagine?!
    Phantom of the Opera
    One of the “Jersey Boys”
    Les Miserables!
    West Side Story
    A Chorus Line
    Guys and Dolls
    My Fair Lady
    Oklahoma!

    Someone please stop me now!….

    Gladys#114,

    You did a great job of translating that article. Even if every word is not accounted for, the meaning is still there. I hope David fulfills his dream of doing a tour in Hispanic countries because it will be a dream come true for his fans as well.

  116. stenocruiser said

    114. Gladys, thank you so much for translating that interview. Enjoyed reading it — I can just imagine how much the last part meant to you and I hope David is able to make his and your dream come true with a South American tour. Oh my, songs in Spanish — a dream come true for all of us.

  117. janey said

    Gladys, do you by chance have the original link to the interview? I did a general search and couldn’t find it. Thanks so much!

  118. Here I go again, LOL

    Patience pays off! Found the HDTV of the CASBAA HK concert the other day. This should be the last batch of updates from me from this concert, promise!

    PERFORMANCE VIDS HDTV 320kbps by CAMS 1 & 2 (same view of live stream)

    ENJOY!!! :)

  119. Abrra,

    For the HDTV MP3s, you can find them all here – per song & full-length concert (320 kbps)

    http://www.mediafire.com/?fil75bbfz9ddg

    In the previous full-length HD MP3, the audience reactions are louder. This HDTV version, it is studio quality.

    Check ‘em out and feel the difference. Just be warned – whether by watching or just by listening, a vortex beckons…

    ps: Just one more sleep till Tour Day! So excited for you peeps :)

  120. Dear Hooked,

    Am so sorry to hear about your loss. I just learned about it.
    Am also a widow so I can relate to what you must be going through.

    You are among one of the most compassionate community online and in this side of Archuland so I hope that helps you a bit.

    Will be praying for your peace.

    Hellllllllo! Today is the day I leave for New York! spazzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
    Have a great day! gah

  123. Abrra,

    But people have been able to download from the same link.
    http://www.mediafire.com/?fil75bbfz9ddg

    They have been spazzing and having eargasm all over twitter. Mediafire says I just have to use the SHARE link instead of the direct link. Can u capture the screen that shows the error and email to me so I can discuss w/ Mediafire.

  124. Abrra said

    JR
    It would hang “Loading”. My bad. It does load on my phone, so it’s a good link. I will try getting it again.
    Admin pls remove my comment about the link not working? I am at work with no computer.

    Abrra I blame my phone for all errors

  125. Oh ok Abrra.I was worried for a while there, LOL

    BTW, which MKOC shows are you going?

    SF – what about you? Which shows are you going?

  126. silverfox said

    Getting ready for My Kind Of Christmas in NY!

    Just some last minute details…like packing! I’m just going around in circles like this is the first time I’ve ever done this?!

    I was asked if David knows what extensive planning some fans go through to see him perform in concert. My answer was if he did, he would shake his head & wonder WHY? Why would anyone go through all this just to see him sing?

    Anyone care to answer WHY?

    I do it because even though it can be time consuming and costly, it keeps me young at heart and gives me something to look forward to. And hearing & seeing David perform LIVE is so rewarding and fills me with unspeakable joy. But I can’t say I enjoy when the euphoria starts to wane & I feel the unexplainable sadness that creeps in when I’m on my way home wondering when or IF I’ll ever see HIM perform LIVE again. It happens every time. Is it worth it? OH MY, A THOUSAND TIMES, YES!

    JR!! (((HUGS))).

  127. silverfox said

    JR,

    SandyBeaches & I will be doing a MKOC Road-Trip. First stop, Westbury, then Irving Plaza, next Turning Stone in Verona, & last Stroudsburg.

    Yes I know…crazy! But we aren’t the only ones! There may be a caravan of cars doing the same thing!

    And besides, it is DAVID after all. ;-) :)

  128. Abrra said

    JR

    I am going to the Westbury show. I am driving down to River’s house in Connecticut.She will be my chauffeur for the trip to NY.

    I am ready to go in the morning. No planes or luggage. ;) my bags will contain various recharge cords for my phone and GPS. I am a simple girl :)

    Abrra blames her phone for all errors

  129. SF, Am not surprised. Naree is crossing the oceans! She is going to the CA-based shows. At least that’s her initial plan. Who knows what will happen once she’s there!

    The things we do for David LOL

    Am looking forward to stories about unintended, totally random meet-ups between 2 D’s ;)

  130. Oh and SF, make sure you bring the HDTV MP3 I just posted for your road trip :)

  131. marlie7 said

    Can’t wait to see everyone at Irving Plaza and Turning Stone. I’m having a hard time doing my work this week I’m so excited.

    SF: Yes, yes,and yes. That is exactly why I do it. Just to hear him sing live is worth all the planning, hassling, saving and traveling.

    NOTICE: TICKET FOR IRVING PLAZA available!

    I have an extra ticket to the Irving Plaza event. I’ll sell it at cost for $41.50 I can email it, I think, or meet you at the door (I’ll be therewith my Fangirl attitude on). email me at marlie7@thedavidchronicles.com for info. (Come on Bebereader!)

    Hey Marlie,
    Wish it was possible but no can do this time! :( Thanks!

    Is anyone else bouncing off the walls today like I am, at the thought of seeing David in concert in one more day??!!!!

    JR,
    Thanks for the goldmine!

    Silverfox.
    Simply, it’s the euphoric feeling we get when he sings that keeps us coming back for more and makes us do what we do. Looking forward to seeing you at Westbury, and SB, too. and SB’s daughter, and Amb4da, and Angelica, and Abs, and Mari, and djbell and hopefully rapture!

    “Just some last minute details…like packing! I’m just going around in circles like this is the first time I’ve ever done this?! ”
    LOL! haha You should have this down pat by now girlfriend! Problem is, David gets us so excited and happy to be seeing him again, we can’t think straight!!♥ At least traveling by car and not airplane you can put those “should I pack this or not?” items into the car at the last minute, wear your slippers if you want to and be free to sing along with David outloud! haha Have a great, fun,and safe trip you two♥♥

    JR thank you for all the delectable goodies!♥Been feasting on all of them!
    Everyone’s excitement is tanglibe today in all the comments here!! I am squeeeeeeing for all of you! You have given me butterflies in MY stomach!

    Bebe♥all those “possibilities” you have thrown out there, great list! GAH! I get chills just thinkin’ about it;) With his gifts,his total zest for life and all it has to offer, the possibilities are endless.( If he ever goes big screen though, I may just go belly up!) That would surely be the end of me.

    Gladys, thank you for translating that great interview article.He is just so incredibly wise and wonderful at 20.(at least in human years)

  135. MT said

    PopCityLIfe did an interview with Steven, the drummer. Here’s a little something that caught my eye. ;)

    Quote:
    “Steven: ha ha ha Well, the most I can say is that the versatility in genres are mindblowing, and that the Christmas spirit will definitely be felt! This one is one for the books! There is a cool surprise during a very well known Christmas song during the show. I can’t say what the song is, but the genre is rock. ;) Listen up for it!”

    haha ^^^ That should crank your ODD up another notch. I know it did mine!! Where’s that crazy running smilie??? haha I think I need him. :D

    Bebe – yes, bouncing off the walls. I need to do something that grabs my attention and keeps it, but it seems only videos of David are filling that bill right now :-)

  137. Angelica said

  138. angelofdja said

  139. sweetonDA said

    I’m so happy for all of you who will be at the NY concerts. I can feel your excitement right through the monitor of my PC. :) Praying for safe travels to all of you.

    MT, I’m loving that quote from Steven. I guess we will know what the surprises are in just one more day. I’m squeeeeeeeeing big time!

    Marlie, I’m not getting much done either. If you find a cure for that, let me know. My concentration is on it’s way to NY with Angelica and the rest.

  140. djafan said

    I’ve been trying to type and can’t think hahaha The excitement is growing by the second! Safe travels to all who are travelling, we’ll be right here to squeeee and spazzzz from a distance. Tomorrow!!!!!

  141. skydancer1x said

    135. MT yep, that put my ODD over the top! EEK!

    I can see Steven doing a situation comedy. I can see it in his face.(He sure seems like a happy ,grateful guy.)
    who wouldn’t be happy drumming for David!? wondering what they are gonna “rock out” to?? Killing me now!!

    Angelica is off into the wild blue yonder!♥ Woo Hoo! watch out NY here she comes! :)

  142. Angelica said

    Stopped in Memphis. Now on the plane to LaGaria! I booked flight both ways with connections in Memphis so I can eat at Neely’s BBQ at the airport. haha. Don’t judge me. Have you ever had their Pulled Pork sandwich? About to take off! Gotta power down. :)

    Sky,
    “omg. Does anyone else he is just..no words help meeeeeeee!”

    Yup, that about sums it up!

  152. Abrra said

    Another article about the tour. With a nice rundown of the possible songs, well sorta ;)

    “The My Kind Of Christmas Tour kicks off in Wesbury, N. Y. and is limited to 13 days, ending in Beaver Creek, Colo., on Dec. 21. The shows will center around Archuleta’s Christmas music, of course, but with an updated songlist. Besides doing numbers from his 2009 holiday album, he’ll also perform a few of the six songs on which he was featured on the recently released Glad Christmas Tidings, the latest album by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. He will also perform a few new songs as well, including “My Kind of Christmas,” a song he co-wrote in response to a fan’s suggestion (derived from the title of the song “My Kind of Perfect,” a track on Archuleta’s last album, The Other Side Of Down).”

    Sky, MT, Poof,

    That interview is probably how David is when just hanging out. It’s mesmerizing to watch. His hands with what I think is a paperclip. What’s he trying to do???

    I’ll be in Ventura with a carload of coworkers lol 6 to be exact. They are so excited, I can’t wait to see their reactions once there.

    Poof so happy for you!! Let me know your seating I’ll come by and say hi!

  154. Angelica said

    I have arrivedaaaaahhhhhaskgh*&$#djdh!!

    The view of New York from the plane at night was just a glorious blaze of gold and white lit glory laid out to every horizon. Then Manhattan came into view with all that brilliance piled up high like a city of crystal palaces! I tell ya it was breath-taking! Been to NY once before but never at night and never from a plane. Going down to get something from the restaurant while that interview up there loads. :razz: I may need fortifying. Waiting for FG and Marciami to arrive in a couple of hours and all heck to break loose!!! Will definitely need fortifying. lol.

  155. skydancer1x said

    Dja, couldn’t tell what it was, he kept folding it I thought it was a teeeny piece of paper he was fidgeting with, haha you have good eyes..And the swiveling lol Idk,gah, I couldn’t take my eyes off of him.move closer David,I want to watch it again, but I need food now.ha! time passes when I am lost in any videos and I forget I haven’t eaten.suddenly I am ravenous.

  156. djafan said

    Hello Angelica!!!!

    The view from the plane window is awesome but nothing like the view at Westbury tomorrow! Did Marciami and FG arrive yet?

    I haven’t watched that there interview in #145. I guess I should put my seat belt on to keep me from bouncing off the ceiling.

    As if the excitement weren’t at a fever pitch all ready!!!

    May as well throw another gallon of gasoline on the fire. 8O

    Versatility in genres??? —- Holy Crap

    One for the books??—-Holy Crap

    Cool surprise during a well known Christmas song???—-Holy Crap

    Genre is rock!!!—Double Holy Crap

    I have a myriad of guesses–he didn’t say look for it–he said “Listen up for it” Hummmmmm—Oh, my brain hurts.

    To all you Archufans, who will be out there on the loose—have the time of your lives!!!! Bask in it–Soak in it–Bathe in it

    I wish David the best and hope he just has a lot of fun and is loose as a goose, as he was in that wonderful interview– #145– They will never understand that you don’t put David in a swivel chair—but there was one new discovery—give David a little something to fiddle with
    ( be it a paperclip or anything) keeps his hands busy –thus no flailing— and no word tripping.
    He just has to keep it lower so it doesn’t hide that intriguing face. He is so fun to watch.

    Wonder what his wardrobe will be–it will be great I’m sure—as long as there are no scarves or reddish jackets. :roll:

    All of you will be taking up a good deal of my mind space tomorrow—thinking about your every little move.. How bout some tweets, to keep us sane. ;) Pretty please!

  160. PattiNC said

    Have fun to all who are standing the first concert and all the others!!! I’m looking forward to basking in the videos!! Glad it kicks off on east coast…don’t have to wait as long for vids!! :). Safe travels all!! Break a leg David…show ‘em how it’s done!!!!,

  161. PattiNC said

    All who are still standing after the first concert. :P

  163. poof said

    Hi Sky,
    I have no idea how far it is from LAX to Ventura because I am coming from Santa Barbara,,,, but no matter, I think anyone of us could just fly it right now anyway !!

    Hi DJA,,,, yes, please find me,,, I will be the one all excited and giggly,,,, oh, that may not help much…. I don’t think we have seats til we sit in them…..I don’t have VIP….. but it will work, it will. calm and cool,,, thats me! :)

  164. PattiNC said

    Dakgal. Haha yeah I think I had it right the first time!! Hoping for amazing mash ups and rearranged songs…quick vids too ;)

  165. MT said

    157. Bebe, LOLing Hold on girl!

    159. Dak, hahahaha You are so funny! And Yeah,Baby! It certainly sounds like some good stuff is coming our way. :D

    And this >>>
    “They will never understand that you don’t put David in a swivel chair—but there was one new discovery—give David a little something to fiddle with ( be it a paperclip or anything) keeps his hands busy –thus no flailing— and no word tripping.

    I had the same thought about that paper clip! haha He was so laid back and relaxed there. But he did do some swivelling!

    I am so excited about tomorrow! I keep hearing “tomorrow, tomorrow, I love ya, tomorrow, You’re only a dayyyy aaaawaayyyyy” in my head. haha Wonder if our random singing David has sung that today? haha

  166. MT said

    Oh my! It’s after midnight east coast time. Westbury is officially T.O.D.A.Y!

  167. jans11 said

    All the excitement is contageous!!! And I have to wait another 2 weeks! Can’t wait for the videos and pictures to see what he has in store for us!! Poor New York with all you guys there at once!! lol Have lots of fun and tell us all about it.

    #145…David’s interview…love it to pieces!!! Reminds me when I met him at VIP in 09′. He had my phone and messed with the buttons looking for a picture and just talked like we were old friends! He is so awesome!!! SLC…here I come…just 2 more weeks!!!

  168. djafan said

    haha MT.

    My stomach is in knots and I’m in the west coast!!!

    Dak, you crack me up. I bought something for David to keep his hands occupied a few days ago, won’t say what yet :)

    Poof, I don’t have VIP either lol. Hopefully I’ll get to meet you :)

  169. bebereader said

    Still bouncing here on the East Coast. Doubt I’ll get much sleep tonight. I’ve always been a concert junkie and looked forward to upcoming shows but this is crazy! There is so much energy in the air! Can you feel it?

    David tweets:

    Made it safe and sound to New York! First show is tomorrow!
    2 hours ago

    @joywilliams @TheCivilWars No way!! Congrats on the Grammy Nominations!!
    1 hour ago

  170. kaycee said

    I’ve been away too long! My crazy life…oh bother! I’ve missed my late night Voice therapy and all the great “therapists” here! Hugs all around! I haven’t been able to catch up on everything, but oh, what awesome stuff awaits us in the next few weeks! I just had to pop in on this exciting concert eve and squeeeee with everyone! Soo excited for all of you in New York…have a blast…and get good videos! I can’t wait to hear about it…and especially can’t wait for the 10th in Cedar City!!! Anyone else here going to Cedar City?

    I was in Deseret Book today, and BOY, were they featuring our BOY! I was so happy because a few weeks ago, I had to search high and low to find the DVD…and today, you could not miss it!! It was
    practically wallpapering the front window, it was playing on three screens as you entered, and was being piped throughout the store, not to mention a large display front and center with yes, a life size cut-out of the man!…not in his tux, but actually in the outfit from the LDS Living article…the one with the red shirt and dark jacket. Haha, it was so life-like that the archugaze had me go blank for a few moments!

  171. dakgal said

    Can you hear it? All the quietness around here.

    Either everybody has gone into a stupor or they are in New York, or at least on their way. Me—I’m running around like Angelica’s smiley man
    —or a bumper car–bouncing off everything–I just can’t seem to land any where for 10 seconds.

    Shouldn’t we have video by now? ….or a tweet?…..they could take video of the highway or their hotel room….or of Angelica in her two piece bathing suit /with boots ensemble. ;) How bout a first hand report on what they had for lunch?

    Any DA sitings or any body remotely connected to him?

    OK— Been here for more than 10 secs—time to move on—does that make time go faster?

  172. djafan said

    Hellloooo Dak!!!

    lol there is a new thread!!! We’re over there!!!!
