DAVID ARCHULETA

David Archuleta’s MKOC Tour Starts Today!!!

Posted by djafan on Thursday, December 1, 2011

Are we ready for a David concert for the books???

This excerpt from PopCityLife interview with Steven the drummer sent twitter and David’s fansites wild.

“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!”

Imagine him here tonight!

We are so ready for anything David.  We might have to be picking ourselves off the floor but we’ll be here waiting anxiously for any tweets, texts, twitpics, whatever tidbits come our way :)

Bebe’s info regarding the eats for today.  Peeps going let us know who meets up!

For before the show, if you need a place to chill:

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  

To hold us in the meantime here is what I think is David’s best interview to date.

    I have been watching the clock on the hour every hour so even though it is 4:45 am I must get up and get going! I am nervous and a bit anxious and I don’t know why but David is too so be still my soul.

    Take care everyone and Djafan I will send along a few pictures as it happens. We are fortunate to be going to his concerts and we will do our best to share the moments.

    Safe travels to everyone, gotta catch that jet plane now…

    omg!! …It’s here!!! …I LOVE that relaxed interview!! .
    “The power of Good music” + David Archuleta + plus “one for the books?!!” = POWER, unleashed, like we’ve never felt before.
    …and I guess that answers too what SF asked in #126 in last thread:

    “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?
    ….my first thought was simple and true as I can say: “Because I must.”
    It’s that kind of power. I’ve always loved music that stirred my soul, and I’ve never had music stir, mesmerize and ROCK my heart & soul like when at the hands of DA’master.

    Bring in on, DA!

    omg….I’ve gotta go get organized, and pack………………….erper/aeaorija/lmpaureeeep!!!! Safe travels, all (and David) and see you there!!!! omg!!!! :)

    I am heading down to Connecticut to meet with River and TrudyFOD! Then on to see David and fan friends. Looking forward to the show of the CENTURY!

    Dja
    Thank you for keeping the home fires burning. I can’t promise what will be sent, but watch your email. ;)

    Abrra has left the building

    Safe travels to everyone, flying or motoring to see David! ‘Ya’ll take care now!’
    Love that interview. ok, so maybe we are not ready for DWTS yet,
    After WATCHing him actually say, he is really self- concious about dancing, I don’t think he would be too thrilled with the whole process.It would take up a lot of time too. I would much rather see him concentrate on his music magic ,and sing to us like he is fixin’ to do TONITE!! WOO HOO!
    So excited I can’t take it! All you lucky people going to “opening night!” as they say in show biz ‘break a leg’ David!♥
    Thank you for bringing us a U.S. Christmas Tour this year!!♥

  5. Well, waiting here in Newark for SF who is coming in from Baltimore.

    The video is awesome. I think that the scarf does something for him and the chair to move in helps to make him quite comfortable…

    What are we in for? I can hardly imagine, but the feeling is that we will be once again surprised.

    So reporting in from Newark this is SB until next time!

  6. betsy said

    Getting ready for a lot more beautiful like this…

    Oh my heart ♥

  7. betsy said

    Seriously though. How can anyone hear that and not be moved? How? I may be going through a preconcert meltdown. Pay no attention, lol.
    But seriously, how?
    When he is moved, we are moved.

  8. djafan said

    SB,

    “What are we in for? I can hardly imagine, but the feeling is that we will be once again surprised.”

    I’m having trouble with the imagining part, actually a little scared lol

    Betsy..ditto ditto and ditto!

    Abrra, will do my best and all of you enjoy!

    Today, Dec. 1

    David Archuleta at the NYCB Theatre at Westbury (N.Y.) at 8 p.m. ($52-$62.50; call 516-247-5210 for more information.) davidarchuleta.com.

    Why you should go: Though Archuleta is now 20 years old, his musical career began at the tender age of 10, when he won the children’s division of the Utah Talent Competition. At 12, he became the Junior Vocal Champion on “Star Search 2,” and four years later, he became one of the youngest contestants ever on the seventh season of “American Idol.” He finished as runner-up, receiving 44 percent of more than 97 million votes. Although he came in second, he still managed to secure a record deal, and several months afterward, he released his first single, “Crush.” His debut self-titled record came in at No. 2 on the Billboard 200, and he’s now gained a fan base not just in the States but abroad as well. Recently, he toured Asia, performing in the Philippines, Vietnam, Indonesia and Malaysia. If you’re interested in hearing this young, vibrant star’s catchy soulful pop tunes in a live setting, this is a perfect opportunity.

    Getting things ready, what to take, what to take…can’t forget VIP info, etc.

    Heard from Angelica a few hours ago:

    “Sitting in Radio City Music Hall with FG about to watch the Rockettes Christmas Spectacular!!!”

    Glad they’re making the most of their time in The Big Apple. There’s so much to see and do here! But the best of all is tonight’s show at Westbury!

    Dja, thanks for holding down the fort. It’s just one night for me but seems like longer, idk why. Will text any goodies I find to pass along to everyone.

    I love all the David buzz this week and who knew he was doing the Fox & Friends special with Mannheim?

    Safe travels to all flying, driving etc. Hope to meet as many fans as possible at the show and at Broadway Diner after the show.

    Christmas From the Heart broke the top 200 on itunes!!! And David isn’t even promoting that one! I’m sure sales of both will go up with the concerts and PBS airing of GCT. The media blitz right now is unreal!!!

    CFTH is #147 on Top Albums (overall) at iTunes store.

    Dak!!!

    Thanks Dja—not only is she doing tripe duty–she is taking care of hair brain stragglers —–Haha—I’m sooo embarrassed :oops: —this is what you get for leaving your computer on all night and thinking all you have to do is refresh—thought it strange no one was posting!……But , then I’m strange so I brought my conversation with nobody over to where there is somebody. LOL

    Thursday, December 1, 2011 at 1:54 PM

    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?

    Me again…….While Dja is at lunch and before we have all the videos from tonite to gush over…I would like to address a minor ( OK major) complaint I have about the skating show.

    See if you agree with me…. during David’s first and last songs–when he was at the side of the stage…………because he was dressed in dark clothes and has that wonderful head of dark hair……don’t you think he blended in well with the dark stage!!

    I mean –come on–Mr. Lighting Man–he needed a nice soft light on him–nothing blinding –so he could see the skaters–just SOMETHING.
    I noticed a nice spot light in the shape of a star behind him—well…it belonged on him. If you didn’t know he was there….you wouldn’t even know where he was–make sense?

    Crab time over–my four walls just don’t understand when I vent to them, but all you Archunuts DO. ;)

    Carry on with the SQEEEEEEEING.

  27. MT said

    Ahhhh home again and I am ready for tonight!

    Dak, I agree, he should always be in the spotlight when on stage! Especially since he looks so good in it!!

    @LisaMurray

    We are releasing 2 Christmas projects this month. One is with the amazing @StacyBarthe & the other is “Dapo & Friends Christmas – Volume 1″

    That’s all I can say about it all right now but I will say 1. Stacy’s will be on REPEAT all Xmas long every year #classic #realmusic & 2.

    2. One of the featured singers on Dapo’s collection is… @DavidArchie!!! There is another surprise there but I’ll wait to reveal!!

    David recorded a song that is not on his Christmas album. He’s a rare gem of amazing talent + kind-heartedness. Can u guess the song? :-D

    Hint: it is not an original & it’s one PERFECT for David’s voice & personality. That’s all I can say for now!!!

    You guys are going to DIE when you hear it!!!! I love him!! I can’t tell you if you’ve guessed it or not but some of the guesses are good!!

    I knew my David fan followers would love that news! The whole project is beautiful! And wait till you hear Stacy’s EP!! Eek! #excited.com

  67. sweetonDA said

    MT, Dja and Sky, I’m here too drinking in all the comments and pics. I’m just not a commenter because I’m working while I’m watching for updates.I’ve got a deadline to complete. I’m here spazzing with everyone else and I can’t wait to hear what his set list consists of!!!! Why don’t we have a live stream? Is it prohibited or everyone attending just want to soak up the Archuleta without worrying about the other. I would understand that completely. :)

    Dja, thanks for holding down the fort. I’m looking forward to seeing you again in Anaheim.

    I can just imagine SB, FG, Bebe, Angelica and all the others who are there sitting, or should I say standing, jumping, and shouting with a smile on their faces while DA sings to them. GAH, I can’t wait for my turn!

  68. MT said

    Sky, I think everyone is just waiting, waiting, waiting. Like us.

    Jeff LeBlanc is on now, so it shouldn’t be long before David is ON! I can’t wait to hear what he sings!

  112. tawna21 said

    okay, I’ve just been lurking the last week..nothing really to say..I just wanted to ‘listen’ for awhile…but, dja #57 did me in…I think I’ve just been trying to ignore what is happening, so I wouldn’t spend the next 3 weeks squeeing and wishing and hoping that it would go faster…the actual picture of David’s stage knocked me in the head and told me to get a grip and just go with the flow…here I go!!
    I.am.in.control!! *not even* :)

  113. djafan said

    My Kind Of Christmas and the Fa La La song where he danced are new.

  114. dakgal said

    He played the drums????? How–when—thud !!

    I had the honor of listening to the concert via Abrra’s dang i-phone. :!:

    and he sounded like he was hitting all cylinders—now to hear the songs in his clear beautiful voice.

    I think I’m still alive–no one here to vouch for that tho—I’ll just have to keep thinking I am.

  115. MT said

    Oh my goodness! Those at the concert must have been in heaven!

    Sky
    They are probably gonna be wound up and talking till the wee hours of the morning.

    Now to wait for videos!!

  117. MT said

    KIds on stage, swagger, attitude, drumming, dancing, OH MY!

  118. djafan said

    He is so specialllll :)

  119. gladys said

    David is really free now, before, had never dress this way. I think David found Exqusite taste of freedom and we are enjoying.
    David is the best food I’ve tasted
    David is the most beautiful landscape I have admired.
    David is the most beautiful sunrise.
    David is a beautiful walk in the rain.
    David is the smell of coffee that I am in the morning,
    David is part of my life ..
    The freedom that david is experiencing, we are feeling in the soul.

    Skydancer, my English limited me to say what I feel.
    I almost lost for words.
    This day, December 1, 2011, the day will be known as D-Day.
    The freedom that he feels is so palpable, from today we will see another david.

    Because this weekend will be EPIC.
    Now I will go listen to a 2 year old version of Ave Maria, some practice listening.
    Oh, Bluesky? I didn’t even think of that.

    Well, it is midnight in NY and they are most likely tired and excited and busy and hungry and tired and even more excited and have to check tickets for tomorrow, etc.

    But I have nothing to do but wait here where it is only 10 pm and think that just maybe one of them has enough time or energy to post a bit… throw a crumb or two. I feel a little greedy. >_<

    But dear NY peeps: just in case you DO have the time and the place and the vids… I will wait. I hope you had the time of your lives!!!!!!

    He’s certainly sportin’ a look that fits “Rock-Starchuleta”! I believe Gladys has said it so perfectly. This is David. He know just where he wants to be. He knows just how he’s going to do it.
    It’s only the first night of his tour. SQUEEEEE, I feel so giddy and happy for David. And us! :wink:

    Dear Skydancer1x:

    My son and I found this on the internet the other day… reminded me of what you just were saying about “all that sugar”. ^_^ Nice thing about DA: he is mostly sugar free sweetness.

    The Night Before Christmas
    ‘Twas the night before Christmas and all round my hips
Were Fannie May candies that sneaked past my lips.
Fudge brownies were stored in the freezer with care
In hopes that my thighs would forget they were there.
    While Mama in her girdle and I in chin straps
Had just settled down to sugar-borne naps.
When out in the pantry there arose such a clatter
I sprang from my bed to see what was the matter.
    Away to the kitchen I flew like a flash,
Tore open the icebox then threw up the sash.
The marshmallow look of the new-fallen snow
Sent thoughts of a binge to my body below.
    When what to my wandering eyes should appear
A marzipan Santa with eight chocolate reindeer!
That huge chunk of candy so luscious and slick
I knew in a second that I’d wind up sick.
    The sweet-coated santa, those sugared reindeer
I closed my eyes tightly but still I could hear;
On Pritzker, on Stillman, on weak one, on TOPS
A Weight Watcher dropout from sugar detox.
    From the top of the scales to the top of the hall
Now dash away pounds now dash away all.
Dressed up in Lane Bryant from my head to nightdress
My clothes were all bulging from too much excess.
    My droll little mouth and my round little belly,
They shook when I laughed like a bowl full of jelly.
I spoke not a word but went straight to my work
Ate all of the candy then turned with a jerk.
    And laying a finger beside my heartburn
Gave a quick nod toward the bedroom I turned.
I eased into bed, to the heavens I cry–
If temptation’s removed I’ll get thin by and by.
    And I mumbled again as I turned for the night
In the morning I’ll starve… ’til I take that first bite!

    David Archuleta is a natural dancer and the most handsome young man I’ve ever seen.

  160. Rock Starchuleta (earlier typo fixed!) was singing ‘The Little Drummer Boy’ and it was quite lovely and being thoroughly enjoyed by the audience when he walked over to the drums. Turning around he had timpani mallets in his hands and he raised them over his head and crossed them tapping them together that was the signal to let the drum playing begin. It reminded me of the ‘Howl’ that was like a call that I cannot explain in words even today. Then the drumming began with him in a stance that was musical in itself.

    Yes there were about 50 fans at the restaurant and we were loud and thought that the restaurant was all ours. I must go to bed as I believe that I am the last one standing.

    Well, we have a new era and we felt it coming and waited with anticipation. He was most appreciative of the participation and responses from the audience and the audience thanked him with their applauses and standing O’s…

    And the Fa La La La La song. The poem. The kids. The laughing. The Dancing!! He was having so much fun. I can see why he put them all over the edge last night. haha I can’t even imagine being there for this!

    Ummm … and how could I forget to say how absolutely GORGEOUS his voice is on LIttle Drumer Boy!

    I still can’t get over how confident he was on stage. Not holding back and I love it!! THIS is what I’ve been waiting for, for him to completely let loose and this is just the beginning. It’s going to get better ladies. Hold on to your hats. He’s going to be blowing us away on a regular basis fro now on.

    Add my OMG to your list. What a party!! I told you he would not disappoint. My expectations were sky high and he truly exceeded them. I was going to whine about no closeups of the neck, but cannot. Everything is just perfect. Cannot wait til this traveling party reaches my neighborhood.

    Last night the local PBS did a fundraiser featuring Glad Christmas Tidings. They were so complimentary to David it was great. They actually called it a David Arculeta program accompanied by the 360 member MTC and and orchestra of 120 with a narrative by Michael York.

    I am home. Thanks to Bebe for keeping my company by speakerphone as I drove.

    Not much I can add at this time. You can see for yourself how wonderful he looked and sang. I need to gather my thoughts before doing my recap. It was just so exciting being there and not knowing what was going to happen until it unfolded.

    I took some pics with my phone during VIP but the room was very dim *scratches head* it was not good enough to see him well.

    Waiting in line for posters. David signed them personally to fans if they asked.

    We got in line again for pictures. Then David disappeared behind the big screen for 5 sec and came back out to sing MKOP a Capella!

    Many thanks to djxox for her stellar videos. She knows what we want :)

    Video Of The Day: David Archuleta Reinforces The Magic Of Christmas His Way

    This video featuring David Archuleta performing his original composition, “My Kind Of Christmas” brought such a smile to my face. The melody and the lyrics are brimming with the spirit and joy of the Christmas season and David’s performance captures the magic of the Christmas season so well.

    Presently on a Christmas Tour with his “My Kind Of Christmas” show, David is following his own career path with the vision and passion he brought to American Idol Season Seven.

    He has a very intelligent, strategic plan regarding his career, knowing full well that there is huge audience out there ready to embrace him with open arms.

    To follow your dreams without the security blanket of a record label takes courage and maturity.

    And, as David said, being tied to a record label is very restrictive for, given the nature of today’s music industry, it can be an erratic and disloyal partnership.

    David has released a CDand DVD with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir called Glad Christmas Tidings.

    It is an absolutely exquisite “watch and listen”, capturing the spirit of Christmas through stellar vocal and instrumental performances.

    David’s Poem ♥♥♥

    My kind of Christmas is a blessing so deep,
    A time spent with family and friends we long to keep.

    My kind of Christmas is a memory to make,
    A time to be remembered when we give more than we take.

    My kind of Christmas is a blessing tonight,
    So many shining their forgotten inner light.

    My Kind of Christmas is a holy place to me,
    A place in time and space right here, eternally.

    So my angels in the snow bless all you do,
    Merry Christmas – My Kind of Christmas – to you.

    All quiet on the eastern front.

    *waves*

    Howdy to all you peeps out there. I suppose you are resting up from the excitement so that you can express yourselves more clearly.
    Futile.

    We know that you have floated off to an alternate universe. We saw the boat leave. But you will be back. *nods head*
    Speechless, confused, disoriented, tongue-tied, sleepless and euphoric. We will welcome you with compassionate arms whether or not you can share what you have experienced with us.

    We will accompany you through your process of DA-tox. Ah yes, compassionate peeps as we are: we will prop you up with the same drug that felled you in the first place.

    What are friends for?
