A Night at the Grove With David Archuleta

Posted by djafan on Friday, January 21, 2011

When the tickets for MoTab were being distributed I had already secured 4 tickets for The Grove in Anaheim in Tier 3 for daughter, granddaughters and myself.  Not the best seats but ok for David’s concert on December 29, one day after his birthday.  Still flying high from my trip to Salt Lake I couldn’t believe I was going to see David again in a span of two weeks.

A few days before the concert my niece came to spend a few days with us for the holidays and wanted to go with us to the concert.  Thanks to my lucky stars, Zully from Honduras took to Twitter to sell a ticket, a VIP ticket no less in Tier 1, Row E!  I took it for guess who?  Meeeee!  I had made peace with the fact that I wouldn’t see David up close this time so this was such a sweet turn of events.  I waited for Zully at the box office and was starting to panic because there was no sign of her.  Suddenly Monica2112 from Twitter, who I’d told about the ticket situation, came walking up to me with another girl, Zully!  She was in line for the Meet and Greet!  We had crossed paths, so thank you Monica!

With ticket in hand I was now able to hang out and meet with David fans in VIP area, some for the first time:  Vermeer, Marthazz, Seattle_D, Karenkid, Starrynites, NP1107, Nancy and a sweet lady who sat next to me during the concert (if you’re reading this please tweet me @djafans or shoot me an email through The Voice email). Great times and now it was time for the concert.  In the audience sat fans of all ages, entire families.  He is gaining in the guy and college age girls; they were representing!

The Set List

Something ‘Bout Love,  The Other Side Of Down,  Touch My Hand,  To Be With You,  A Little Too Not Over You,  Parachutes and Airplanes, Angels,  My Hands,  Elevator,  Pat-A-Pan,  The First Noel,  Complain,  Falling Stars,  My Kind Of Perfect,  Stomping the Roses, and as a finale, Crush.

The concert was magnificent!  David exploded onto the stage; he burst out like a flash of lightning, sparkling like only he does and there he was.  I stood for most of the concert, dancing, singing, whistling and watching him intently, trying to remember every word and emotion that came to me as I watched him perform.

I’ve seen David perform live several times but this was by far the most intense, passionate, energized, sensitive, confident and powerful I’ve ever seen him.  He owned that stage at The Grove and commanded the audience effortlessly, with a glance, a gesture, a smile.  The power in his voice, the tenderness, the tone, deeper and richer than ever before, the new runs, the emotion pouring out to us, making even those old songs sound like new.  When he sat at the piano, those of us on the left side of the venue couldn’t see him and he apologized that we wouldn’t be able to see his face.  Can you believe that?  Thank goodness for big screens which did enable us to see his beautiful face.  I’m happy to say he was drinking lots of water (but I couldn’t secure his water bottle this time, darn it!) 😛  and sweated profusely from start to finish.  For the first time I’ve ever seen, he actually took the towel handed to him and slowly wiped his brow, face and chin to the delight of everyone.

Wrapped up in his magic, I was feeling euphoric with a swelled heart filled with joy and gratitude.  What a blessing it is to get David and his gift.  He ended the set with “Stomping The Roses”.  He told it to us and made us understand it!  The energy, the sassiness, the flirtatiousness…WOW, he is a master at this I tell you.  He left the stage but the applause was thunderous and out he came to close the show.  I’m so glad that some were able to catch at least the audio so I may relive my experience, but boy do I miss the videos!

As we walked to the car, I thought my evening was over.  But I noticed a crowd gathering behind the venue and needless to say we ended up at a fence, waiting for David.  In an hour’s time there were a few hundred of us waiting.  Then the band came out and said “Bye” to us and told us David would be out shortly.  The screams let us know when David appeared and he walked along the fence, Sharpie in hand, signing, giving high fives and beaming.  You could see how happy he was to see us.

I took out my phone and ipod, started to record and before long he was in front of me signing my ipod!

My granddaughter and niece took off their shoes and he signed those, too.  BTW my niece is a new convert telling all on facebook about David and his amazing voice and her wonderful aunt!

It was a great ending to a perfect evening.  It’s unfortunate that there are no videos from this show to capture the growth of this remarkable talent.  Hopefully my words brought you a sense of what I experienced.
