At the Majestic ~ David Archuleta 2.0

Skydancer’s Recap

Random thoughts (from a rambling mind)..row 2, seat 2….PIT

At the Majestic Theater Dallas.
Lovely venue…these old historic theaters are too few.
More comfortable now, out of the crowded warm lobby and into the cooler space of this  grand old theater.  I can’t wait to see David!!!!
Now looking for row 2, seat 2, PIT.  I have to say it over again.  PIT, PIT, PITPITPIT!! …I have never been this close for David’s performances.  I have only seen him LIVE on two occasions and had to look at the big screens to see him.
I am so happy.  Squeeeeeeeee!  Smiling down the same row to the left at my beautiful new David friends, we agree…these seats are awesome!.

OMG, I am so close to the stage!
Oooh.  Nice seat.  Soft and cushy and red.
On stage is a big chair and a fireplace that works.
OK, I was prepared to be in front of speakers.
I am so thrilled to be here, this close to David and I sit back to wait and relax.  The show is running a bit late but it finally begins.  The DJ’s reading from a rather quirky entertainer I had not seen before of “The  Night  Before Christmas.”
Gee, hope the speakers aren’t too loud.  Gee,there are a lot of them.  They are stacked up like pancakes.

The DJ’s finally announce David,to applause and screams.  All ages here tonight!  I love people screaming for David! YEA!  A moment passes and still the curtain remains closed.   A few more moments…. A radio song is played to fill in the time and then the chants begin DAVID DAVID DAVID!
My pulse is racing now.  I am so excited!!!!    AHHHH!
The real music begins, loud drumbeat coming from the speakers, curtains open and band is playing the intro to SBL!!!  They are almost to the back of the stage. That’s new.
I swear I can hear and feel my own heartbeat now coming through the speakers only 6 feet away.  But I recognize SBL!  It’s gonna be alright!
And then, he appears to be coming from back of stage to my right.  The volume on the scream factor up!

David is now right in front of me, a little left.
I thought I was prepared.
I wasn’t…
It all felt new again,
He is so beautiful.  GAHHHH I feel flushed.
He’s full of energy and all over the stage.

I could not take my eyes off of him.  The whole concert I took 4 pictures.  He was so close that when he was standing right in front of me, I couldn’t do it. I couldn’t take my eyes off of him long enough.  I wanted to savor the moment I knew was going to go by so quickly.

Note: the camera police happened to be sitting to the immediate right of my speakers.
The setlist, I know that you know by now.
My Kind of Perfect was right in front of me.  I could see enough of David over the speakers.  The audience went nuts over each song.  After Melodies of Christmas, the last song…everyone was on their feet with another standing O for David.  We remained standing and chanting until he reappeared and belted out CRUSH.  It was fabulous.
He performed to perfection for his first concert back with band.
His voice was incredibly strong and gorgeous.
The new band was awesome and each member was introduced by David and played for us.
From his head to his toes he looked amazing.
There was a whole new vibe goin on.
All I can say is…
Tour is going to be amazing!

Driving back home__
I  had a few tears in the car…over the absolute joy I feel inside my heart at finally seeing David last night again.  And the touch of sadness that comes when he departs.
Can’t listen to TOSOD cd right now.

Tomorrow maybe, but not right now.
I want to savor the moments in my head of listening to that magnificent voice from row 2 seat 2…..PIT.

    Skydancer ~ wonderful recap of your oh so special night. I always love it when someone else says David is beautiful. I think so too!
    I’ve seen some of the vids. His voice sounds strong & beautiful too. I’m so excited because I’m going to see him @ the Grove, Anaheim 12/29. Can hardly wait. Thank you for writing about the concert.

    Oh wow! You were at the Dallas concert ? Can I hear more about “The Other Side of Down” dance moves? After watching Hazeleyd71’s twitvid l have gone crazy for the past 2 days. I clicked “replay” on computer and turned myself into an elephant , stretched out my trunk, went rumpeta, rumpeta all around the house Woot- hooing and dancing non-stop. I’ve heard about tarantula bite makes people dance crazily till they die, but I’m not too sure about TOSOD bug. Am I the first victim in the ArchuWorld?!

    Oh why I always come to “The Voice” to call for help? Hahaha….Ha .. Nevermind,Don’t care about me….

    Hi Skydancer!! I am the VERY lucky lady that you gave your daughter’s seat to (because she couldn’t come) IN THE SECOND ROW!!!!! I cannot even tell you how much that meant to me!!! I am still in shock over sitting so close to David! It was just an unbelievable experience and I will always cherish it! Thank you from the bottom of my heart! I was amazed at how much older and more mature David looks now. That person who thought he was 12 needs glasses! He is stunning. I am always amazed when I see him in person – I spend countless hours looking at pics and videos but when you actually see him right there in front of you his beauty is overwhelming. Aah, I can’t even think properly so excuse this rambling post!

    Skydancer, thanks for the awesome recap. I’ve been waiting for one. I love the way you described how you felt in that moment just before he came on stage, and right after.

    I have not been fortunate enough to see him live yet, but hopefully this next tour will come close enough for me to go. Reading recaps like yours keep the excitement alive for me and make me really look forward to my own concert experience. So, Thanks.

    Skydancer,

    I know just how you feel about getting seats way closer than you ever dreamed at a concert. The same thing happened to me in Cleveland last year for the CFTH concert. It’s an overwhelming feeling even before he comes out. I actually looked at flights for Dallas when this show was announced but couldn’t really justify it, what with the MoTab Utah event so close. He was definitely on fire in Dallas and I am loving the new band and vibe they have going. I’m still in awe of his ability to take his performance skills to the next level with each new endeavor. Like Randy said, he is meant to do exactly what he is doing. Part of the fascination of being his fan is watching the transformation take place and wondering “what just happened?” Thanks for taking the time out to write about it with your excitement still intact. I felt I was there with you in “row 2, seat 2….PIT!”

    Thank you for satisfying the fanbase with a recap! You know how we love to hear about every little thing. There is no denying the electricity that’s in the air before David comes onstage. And when he finally appears, there are no words for the feelings that come over us.

    I was a concert junkie and have been to a lot of shows, but David gives me the biggest rush! So glad you got to share it with other fans. That adds so much to the experience!

    How did you get such good seats? Row 2 Seat 2 Pit? I’ve never had the pleasure of sitting that close. Hope to one day!

    Oh my gosh, I just saw the end of MOC in #22 and it’s a good thing I was at home alone cause I was just shouting out, “that’s it, that’s how you end a show”.
    I’ve been to four David concerts and I was always thinking that he left soooo fast and it kind of just cut off that great feeling so prematurely. This is a whole new level of comfort from him and I’m sure it was so much more fulfilling for the audience. He KNOWS they loved his performance and he seems to have loved it as well.
    I’m having a harder and harder time waiting for a concert!!! At least my “concert jar” funds are getting a chance to build up!

    Chills, thrills & yes, teary eyed too after reading Skydancer’s recap & watching the videos from The Majestic. A fitting venue name for David to appear in as he was nothing less than Majestic! He did indeed look beautiful and he’s looking more so the older he gets. 😀

    I got teary-eyed reading this…

    “Driving back home__
    I had a few tears in the car…over the absolute joy I feel inside my heart at finally seeing David last night again. And the touch of sadness that comes when he departs”.

    I wonder why this happens to so many? After the euphoria comes the sadness after seeing David in concert. We’re left wondering how long it will be before we can see him again. I doubt fans of other artists feel or have this kind of connection.

    Thank you Skydancer, for making me remember how it feels to really experience “David In Concert”. BTW, I love your “name”.

    I am so excited for MOTAB and so excited for the full set on the 29th in Anaheim. I also remember the sadness that happens after a David experience, the missing him, maybe it’s part of the equation on getting David and continuing to support him unconditionally because it’s a two way relationship. He belongs on a stage giving of himself to us and us loving and appreciating him in return. I’ve also learned that the low does ease up and having a community of archangels sure helps until the next time…

    Bebereader, thanks for posting my videos. Sorry I didn’t record SBL, TOSOD, and ALTNOY. Security was roaming the mezzanine at the beginning and so I just snuck in a couple of stills but then I noticed that they were only going to people using flashes so I took a shot at it and just kept going.

    Thanks for writing your recap for us. Your sharing of the anticipation and excitement of attending live concerts is a gift to those who must stay home. I am so excited that Fiona got that ticket. I knew you would give it to someone special.

    It is no wonder you didn’t feel prepared to see him when he came out on stage. He is evolving so fast in his beauty and craft that daily concerts would be the only way to keep the shock and awe under control! Who am I kidding?????

    As I watched the videos posted by the lovely Bebe, my screen literally froze up in 2 places that have been discussed here in comments.

    Serendipity? You decide.

The introduction and having each band member play a moment,awesome.Hearing David say
    their fist and last names, and hearing “music director,Hans Nielson”, well, it was just awesome! and David was so loving it. I felt so proud!

    Angelica, yes, Archumaiden has become familiar to this baby for sure. I’ve been playing a Christmas tour CD that Abrra has made in my car, and both TOSOD and CFTH are on repeat in my gym class. And in Pete’s car it’s always either Radio Rock or Maiden, since as you well know Pete would love to have Bruce Dickinson as the father of his babies. And no, there are no typos in that sentence.

    I’ve gotten a lot of comments on CFTH from the seniors. They l-o-v-e David 😉 One lady said “Voi että, tuo David se vaan on aina yhtä hyvä”, meaning “Oh, that David never fails – he’s always so great!”. And one man said “What a fabulous arrangement” when I played `Joy To The World´.

    David has made an impact for sure.

Then she made me a whole album of pics with captions next to them about all the fun we had! I was so touched! One of the nicest things someone has ever done for me!

    Hello all! Ran across this great “Close Encounter With David” story from Sacramento by one of David’s most devoted young & very pretty fans,@Sarah13Bellin. Another example of “Good things come to those who wait”. Check out the photo of her & David (which I can’t post, but the link is at the bottom. 😀

    *******************

    Story From Last Night, When I Met @DavidArchie, Both Postings Are The Same Just This One Tells You How I Met Him & Not The Whole Day:

    My dad & I decided to walk around the building. We found some other girls waiting outside a door with a security guard so we waited 20mins or so then continued walking. We got to our car & my dad asked “Do you want to leave or walk around again?” & something inside said to walk around more. Also because David hadn’t tweeted yet & he usually tweets after he has left the venue or as he is leaving & he hadn’t tweeted yet so I figured he must still be there.
    So we walked back to the front of the Capital & the same security that was on the side where we were before was now at the front still talking to the girls. He actually was friends with the girls, the girls were also waiting for David. Well they left about 15mins later & my dad & I are still standing there. The sercurity guard comes up “Are you waiting for David?” Me: “Yeah.” Security: “That’s fine you can wait how long you want.” Me: “I’ve waited 12 hours to meet David before so a little longer wont hurt..” Security: “Wow your a dedicated fan.” Me:” I sure am all I want is a picture with him. I think he still might be here because he hasn’t tweeted & he normally tweets when he is leaving or has left.” Security: ” *smiles* Let me go look around”
    I’m waiting there just lalala & 2 mins later he comes back & opens the door & does a little nod for us to come. We walked up to him & he said “Your very lucky, those people I was with were my friends.”
    I’m confused right now. I look over to the stair case & I see David through the slits tweeting!!! Then 15 seconds later buzz buzz..
    I looked over & saw Davids aunt & she had a huge smile on her face & told me to come to her. So I walked over grabbing my book out of my bag. Right now David walked over to the statue in the middle of the Capital & took a picture of it. Then Davids aunt pushes me a little & says “Go say hi!” I was timid & was like uhhh & she told me “Go say hi!” then David turned around & with a big smile on his face “HI!!!” *walks fast towards me* David had lots of family with him & they were all around us just smiling at me.
    I showed David my book & told him “So I already had you sign this in Fresno but you know how crazy it was” David: “Yes it was crazy!” Me: “Well I was wondering if you can personalize it for me?” David: “Yeah sure, sorry I didn’t do it in Fresno.” Me: “Oh gosh don’t worry about it, there were tons of people, I understood.”
    *Davids writing me name & then draws musical notes* Me: ” *smiles* Can you draw you piggy!!” David: “Yeah!! *Smiles* ”
    Me: ” Can I have a hug?” David: “Yeah sure!” I wrapped my arms all around him while he was gonna give me a one armed hug but then he brought up his 2nd arm & did a proper hug. =]
    My arm is still around his waist & his arm is on my back because I wanted a picture of us two hugging but it didn’t happen. Still having are arms on each other I asked if I could have a picture of course he said yes. We scooted over to the staircase *arms still on each other* then Davids cute little 4 year old cousin walked up & I gave him a high 5. That’s why in my picture my arm is at my side also before I cropped the picture you could see the top of his cousins head. Then I hugged him again & told him “I will cherish this day forever!”. My dad told him “Thank you!” David: “Oh no problem, thanks for coming & nice meeting you.” Then I said bye to David & his family. =]
    As I was walking out I was texting I just met David & so tripped!! I hope David didn’t see!! xP
    My dad told me while I was talking to David my dad was talking to his aunt & my dad told his aunt “See that necklace around Sarahs neck?” His aunt: “Yeah.” My dad: ” it says Sarah Archuleta.” His aunt: “Aww how cute.” My dad: ” Sarah also covered up her school ID & put a picture of David there.” His aunt: ” Ahaha that’s funny.” Best day of my life! =]

    TOSOD was so underrated and not given enough of a chance by non-fans. So yes, let us fans be the first to proclaim that it was indeed the best album of 2010! WTG David! He deserves every honor for an amazing CD.

    Silverfox,

    Thanks for bringing Sarah’s recap here. Always such a good feeling to read fan encounters especially one like this, from a fan who said she once waited 12 hours to see David, who is so worth the wait. She’s adorable and a lucky girl to get a two-arm hug! She deserved it!

    Wow! I think it’s been almost a month since I’ve been able to check out videos of David or even get on this site. My teenage daughter (and fellow concert-goer) became very ill about a month ago and after weeks of great discomfort, hospitalizations, and stumping doctors was diagnosed with a very rare and serious disorder. She has just started a very aggressive chemotherapy and steroid treatment, and we are hoping for the best. Her spirits were quite low today, so we went out driving, and she turned to me with such sad eyes and said, “I just want to listen to David.” So we stuck in TOSOD and then CFTH, and the heaviness seemed to lift and the sadness seemed to fade.
