David Archuleta @ The BYU Spectacular October 8th & 9th!

Posted by djafan on Monday, October 5, 2015

The BYU Spectacular is this Thursday and Friday.  It looks like it’s going to be an epic event!  Please let there be videos!  A Periscope event would be nice 🙂  I’ll be following twitter for any news.  Let us know if you’ll be going in the comments and if you’ll be tweeting post your twitter handle so I can make sure I’m following you.

David Archuleta appearance may bring record crowd to BYU Spectacular

By on October 5, 2015.

Some of BYU’s most popular performing groups will share center stage with David Archuleta at this year’s BYU Spectacular.

BYU Spectacular producer Michael Handley said there has never been such a high demand for tickets to the show.

“There’s a particular interest in David Archuleta,” Handley said. “That’s triggered the terrific box office response.”

Tickets went on sale in July, but the demand was so high that the BYU Alumni Association added 1,800 seats to each show — 3,600 extra seats total. This is the first time that a performance of BYU Spectacular has ever sold out, according to Handley.

The Marriott Center “empty”

Handley said BYU students and alumni are not the only ones excited about Archuleta’s performance in the BYU Spectacular.

“All of the performing groups have expressed interest in performing with David,” Handley said. “I think the audience will really enjoy seeing our groups interact with him.”

Most of the music in the show, including Archuleta’s music, will be accompanied by the BYU jazz band Synthesis. Archuleta will also sing with Women’s Chorus and Vocal Point. The Contemporary Dance Theatre will also perform alongside him.

The Cougarettes will dance while Archuleta sings “Glorious,” the song he debuted in the movie “Meet the Mormons.”

“This will be extremely memorable for the Cougarettes,” Overman said. “It’s a unique experience to work with someone as well known as David Archuleta.”

Handley said Archuleta seems enthusiastic about performing with BYU groups as well.

 

“He was extremely interested and excited at our request to pair him off with our ensembles,” Handley said. “This is an opportunity that I don’t think he normally gets.”

BYU Spectacular is one of many school-sponsored events during Homecoming week. Some of the other popular events include True Blue Foam and the homecoming dances, all leading up to Saturday’s football game against the East Carolina Pirates.

The 2015 BYU Homecoming week officially begins Tuesday, Oct. 6, and ends Saturday, Oct. 10.

    “I am so excited for the duet with Nathan Pacheco. If anyone thinks David can’t sing opera they don’t realize that David can sing anything. I got curious if there are any songs I know that are opera songs so I googled it. It turns out that although I’m not familiar with most opera songs, I do know several. One is from Porgy and Bess “Summertime” and another is “Ave Maria”!!! Who knew that “Ave Maria” is considered opera? So, in effect, David has been singing opera as long as he has been singing “Ave Maria”. :)”

    Dear Bebereader: If you were here with me, we would be skipping together while holding hands. I am SO with you!! ^_^

    And… I will be there at the BYU “thing” on Thursday. For once I really wish I knew how to do the whole phone/camera thing. Or that I even had a phone that would do it. But that is because I am thinking there might not be so many fans there…..

    I am forgetting this generation of techies. I foretell: there will be vids. I just hope you can get someone to periscope.
    That would be amazing.

    That DA will be performing with many of the groups? Shades of AI! Come back to haunt? No… this will be amazing!!!!

    And once again… (as if anyone needed reminding of my approval *_*). This opportunity for DA to sing with Nathan Pacheco….just think….if DA has been having any thoughts about how to enlarge his audience and repertoire…Oh My. this is such a great opportunity.

    I am SO happy about this. DA does nothing without a reason. And Nathan… in a word…generous. And…it will be a nice “draw” for him as well. Win-win.

    Yummy.

    According to The Digital Universe 1,800 seats were added to each night’s performance.

    With all the tickets sold the Marriott Center will be half-filled for each performance. It doesn’t say what’s the capacity of the arena but Google tells me it’s 19,000. So that means there will be 9,500 people in the audience each night.

    Is it too much to hope that a few of those 9,500 (or 2-night total of 19,000) would take video and maybe one person would set up a Periscope broadcast?

    Keeping my fingers and toes crossed.

    Not being greedy here but since there are two dance groups performing with him I hope he would burst out some moves or the dancers could get him involved in their choreography in a jazz number, pick him up and carry him around over their shoulders or something like they sometimes do in acrobatic dance. That would be totally epic!! LOL

    The hospitality rider posted above looks legit to me as I use to see the entertainment contracts for the University of Iowa. I loved to read the hospitality riders to see what the artists requested. David’s is NOT a diva request. He’s mainly asking for PB&J sandwiches, drinks and cereal. She should see what some artists want! I don’t think we have to worry about getting information when these concerts take place. This is in a large arena where it would be impossible to police everyone with smart phones and cameras. I’m sure we will get tweets, videos and pictures. We will be in Archu-heaven, I hope!

    David Archuleta surprises students at Homecoming opening ceremonies
    By CreelaBelle Howard on October 6, 2015.

    The audience screamed as David Archuleta took the stage at BYU’s Homecoming opening ceremonies in the Marriott Center Tuesday morning.

    Vice President of Advancement Matthew Richardson pretended to host BYU Idol, a mock of reality TV show American Idol. He introduced the three judges and invited the contestants, Tori Pence, from Divine Comedy, and Vocal Point onto the stage. They all performed, but the judges said they did not qualify as a BYU Idol.

    Richardson then said there was one last-minute contestant. Archuleta walked on stage and sang his first hit single, Crush, accompanied by an orchestra. He then performed his song from Meet the Mormons, Glorious, with the Cougarettes dancing in the background.

    Archuleta came second in American Idol’s seventh season. He has since released six albums and served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Chile.

    Charlene Winters, BYU alumni activities chairwoman, paid Archuleta $5,000 for him to come without notifying the public. She said she knew many students would not get the opportunity to see Archuleta perform in the sold-out Homecoming Spectacular show.

    “I wanted the students who cared enough to come to the opening ceremonies to experience that,” Winters said.

    Archuleta was not originally scheduled to come to Provo this early. Winters confirmed he will fly out again before returning to perform at the Homecoming Spectacular.

    It was so much fun yesterday to see all the tweets, Instagram pictures and videos of David at BYU Homecoming assembly yesterday. We are in for more fun on Thursday and Friday nights. Looks like there will be lots of videos and pictures. I too am glad that the amount David made for his appearance yesterday was deleted although as an ODD fan of David I was happy to see he made $5000 for the appearance. If he is to continue in the music business he needs enough money to support his business. There is his own living expenses plus paying his team and the band along with getting out the new music and marketing.

    David Archuleta Amazes BYU Students with Surprise Performance (Video)

    During BYU’s Homecoming opening ceremonies, students were shocked when David Archuleta took the stage to sing his first hit single “Crush” and “Glorious,” which was featured in the Church’s movie Meet the Mormons.

    The surprise performance came while Advancement Vice President Matthew Richardson was pretending to host BYU Idol. Richardson invited the contestants–Vocal Point and Divine Comedy’s Tori Pence–to perform on stage, then said there would be one last-minute performance. That’s when Archuleta appeared in front of thousands of screaming fans.

I also noticed it somewhat in the video with Nathan Pacheco. He may never outgrow it…just his personality. I’m the same way and as old as I am I still don’t like to be. I’m not a good talker either, my mind travels all over the place so I forget what I’m talking about! 🙂 Hard to stay focused for me when in front of people. One on one, I have no problem talking! 🙂 I’m glad that he is soooo good on stage with his God given talent.

    Vocal Point is a nine member singing group that is just at BYU. And I think there is a time limit on how long a person can be in the group. It is like a “class” that goes for a certain time and performs, but then makes room for new people to have the experience. They record CDs and perform all around, but you will see different people in the group over time.

    This just boggles my mind….. “Additional bench seating for $10 has been added in sections 124 and 146. Although a side view of the stage, they will have a great view of the video boards. ”

    David is sooo loved and appreciated….. venues are learning that (the hard way). How are the Midland sales doing?

    Yayy Tawna. So glad you will be at Tuacahn!

    So I was worried about parking tonight but found if you get here 3 hours early parking is easy. Shauna and Patty came 2 hours later and parked next to me. Perhaps I could have waited.

    I’m just wondering here. Who is responsible for the promo work? The venue or David’s agency? I’m hoping that Texas gets it going quickly.

    First, HUGE THANKS!!! to Dorothy for Periscoping for us so we could enjoy it in real time. And thanks to all the fans who shared their experience and our admins for bringing links and pictures and tweets so we could all feel like we were a part of it.

    David’s voice sounded like it was in tip-top shape tonight. He sounded incredible on each and every song. My personal favorite was Everybody Hurts just because I’ve listened to that one at least 200+ times. It’s probably my most played of his songs besides Heart Falls Out. Haha … or it could be a tie. I’m so glad he sang it (and so amazingly) tonight.

    Last, but not least, Thank You, David! for a Great performance tonight.

    The Imagine video at 109 shows David introducing his accompanist on the guitar, Parker . In the silence following the smattering of applause someone in the audience shouts “we love you Parker”. Hence the look of amusement on David’s face.

    “So I was worried about parking tonight but found if you get here 3 hours early parking is easy. Shauna and Patty came 2 hours later and parked next to me. Perhaps I could have waited.”

    Dayzee, you are such a hoot! I realized at the last minute (busy doing taxes) that I actually had two tickets instead of one. ^_^ Fun! So I asked my son to take me. We got caught on the freeway and did not get there until just 10 minutes before it began. We parked fairly close in the stadium parking. Not bad at all.

    Except….! When we got to the venue I could not find the tickets. I had been reading them and holding them in my hands in the car just minutes before. My son sprinted back to the car, but could not find them. We called home and had my daughter email copies of the tickets to me… (they will take a digital image if you have it.) While she was sending it, my son ran (literally) back to the car a second time and found the tickets under the car. (!!!!!!!) They were full 8.5×11 pieces of paper, so they were not hard to see. I must have dropped them from my lap when I got out of the car. *_*

    My son teased me that I just wanted to see him run. ^_^

    With all of that, we had good seats and got in our places just as they began introducing DA.

    So, actually Dayzee, I think traveling with me would have given you a heart attack. Accompanying me is not for the faint of heart. You go girl!!

    We had a great time. My son Joey is the one that made me listen to DA for the first time when he was on AI. He loved seeing him again and the performances were all we could have wished for: amazing, new – always new. He is so “small”. We know his “size” but he fills up the stage like he is four times the size of any other person.

    He interprets the songs as though he were in the middle of a musical play: there is so much context when he sings that you are invited into his world, and like the children in the Wonka Factory – you just can’t see everything – there is so much going on, so many layers, meaning, coloring, and pathos, joy, light, and freedom.

    We had fun. ^_^

    We just got home from the second performance. It’s taken me the last hour to catch my breath! All I can say is heaven help us all if David keeps amping it up on Everybody Hurts… the close ups of his eyes, on the jumbo-tron, during this song were telling the story! I almost wept at feeling the emotion that he was putting into the song. I was a little nervous at first about hearing the music, any of it, over the sound system. After all, we were in a basketball stadium and sometimes it’s not the best sounding sounds. I don’t know what they did, but it was awesome! David’s voice filled that stadium with sounds that have never been there before! It was like it was reverberating in my heart.

    The next best thing to seeing and hearing David tonight? After how many years, and how many times of being at the same concert but never sitting together, I got to sit by Dayzee tonight!!! Thanks my friend for the hugs and laughs! ♥♥

How wonderful it is to see David back up on the stage doing what he does best. So happy to hear that voice again!
