David Archuleta ~ The Troubadour Concert Experience, NO WORDS.

Posted by djafan on Sunday, July 23, 2017

 

I can’t believe it’s been a month since the Troubadour concert.  The memories are still so vivid, I can play the videos and it takes me right back to that night.  I’m so glad David’s Aunt Laurie convinced me to leave the balcony and experience the GA energy. The venue told me the balcony seats were on a first come basis, but told me not to worry there wouldn’t be a line for this concert, WHAT?! Well as you can see picture below there was quite the line and they looked a tad surprised.  After leaving the balcony I made it right to the front, I could reach out and touch his feet lol,  I have been to many many David concerts over the last 10 years and nothing had prepared me for the Troubadour.  David was singing the best I’d ever heard him sing and the energy in the entire place was alive, the electricity traveling back and forth from us to him and from him to us was unreal.  The look on his face every time we sang his new songs back to him, even I’m Ready one that he hasn’t released yet, the joy and love oozed out of him. The love fest at the end with all the high fives, the selfies, his reaching out so far almost falling into the crowd on several times.  David used all the arms reaching out to him for support leaning in, it was incredible.

I’ve included the limited videos I took, I just couldn’t stay still!  And a few pictures I took and some are Monica’s, thank you Monica!  Just look at those pictures, watch the videos, not the best quality but you can FEEL it all.  I’m so ready to do this again!!!

Up All Night and David became one on this night.  I had seen all the videos and there was something missing, but wow did he kick it out of the stratosphere, “moving” and all like he calls it.  I’m highlight it here.

Say Me slayed me.  I’m so happy David added it back to the set list, gut wrenching, and that voice just wow!

I kept my phone on David during the guitar solo and when he joins in, hold on to your seats!

    Great recap Dja! It just never gets old …. reading about others’ David experiences!! The energy in this concert comes thru in the videos, and even the still shots! Love it!!

    What was that about not expecting the lines to be long?!! Really!!? They had a new experience didn’t they!! NEVER, EVER underestimate the power of @DavidArchie fans …. we will be there in throngs! 🙂

    ‘Say Me’ is such an amazing song. I need to find the lyrics to it.

    Djafan – Great recap! I had to sit in a balcony at a GA concert back in the day and you really don’t get everything out of it. My daughter was at the troubadour and said it was quite electric. She goes there often for concerts and said the crowd was super responsive and also respectful when he spoke. That part surprised her for the troubadour. She said usually when an artist starts talking it does not get quiet. She took a non-fan who immediately posted videos of the concert on his social media. He was quite surprised. I think David particularly loved this concert and venue because of the crowd response and the fact that there was somewhat of a different vibe to this crowd than any of the others he has performed in front of. Los Angeles and especially West Hollywood is a unique area and he could draw the crowd with the best of them. So happy you went and were able to experience this epic concert. ❤ Martha

    Dja, thank you thank you!! Great pics and great videos. Having read your recap I feel like I’ve just been to another David concert. That version of Say Me was by far the best ever for me. The love from the audience is palpable. Even when you can’t see them, you can feel them as being part of the performance.

    The video showing the end of the show was epic. Watching the security fellow trying to keep David from falling off the stage was hilarious. And when David left I see you continuing to record. Always hoping he will return. And even though floating in the euphoria of time spent with David you still feel that tug of emotion when you realize it is over. Noticed Fuji is still the bottle of choice.

    Thanks, Abs for the puzzle this week. David is such an avid animal lover and is so good with them.

    KC has had 3 super bad storms the last few weeks and I have been lucky to not have any damage…til this time. No tornadoes were forecast, so it had to be a “miroburst”. So many are still without power but mine is on now. Still have a tree limb hanging in the wires but they have to get the power on for everyone first. I will get a hold of my home insurance tomorrow and hope they insure more than “fire eating dragons”! 🙂

    Dja, I agree. Say Me has been my fav since I first heard it. I feel it is the message we all need to hear, “say me” when it comes to who will speak, who will try, who will stand, even if it is just in a quiet way in a place or room no one would know of, or a time we might think we can’t make a difference. Being true to who we are, the best within us, is always going to stretch us in unexpected ways.
    For me, the inner journey always seems a steeper climb than the outer. I really love this song.

    Thanks, all you guys! Be safe from the storms.

    The vibe was something else at that concert; and I think you are right about the live version of “Up All Night.” The singing is always stellar, but David really turned the corner on that song at the Troubadour. Electric. Amazing how he just keeps getting better. So glad you were able to go. Thank you for sharing your experience and the videos with us!

    Djafan,

    Thank you for writing such a compelling recap where it felt like we were part of the GA. Seeing the pictures and videos through your eyes was a real treat; you captured something different than others I’ve seen. Most stop filming as soon as David finishes singing. But those few seconds where you linger just a little bit longer, allows us to see more, capturing the rawness of the moment. Such a thrill for those of us who have yet to see him in concert on this tour. It was sure worth the wait!

    I hope my concert experience is as mesmerizing as your’s was at The Troubadour.

    Thank you so much for your awesome recap of David’s shows. Next best thing to being there. The Troubador concert was something special. I could literally feel the electricity between David and the audience as I watched the videos. In my opinion the songs from Orion are the best things he’s ever done. I never get tired of listening to them. So excited to hear what he is sending our way next !!

    Here you go, Say Me lyrics.
    “Say Me”

    To each his own, given his own time
    Speak for yourself, I speak for mine
    Try to bring each other to the light we need

    When the whole world has left you behind, the temperature has dropped inside
    You need to know who’s gonna find, say me

    I need you
    I need you
    I need you
    To say me

    I need you
    I need you
    I need you
    To say me
    Say me

    Does your heart need reminding the answers to questions
    You lay beside when all you wanna do is fall asleep

    Everyone starts to question why
    Sees the rust where I see shine
    You need someone to take aside
    Say me

    I need you
    I need you
    I need you
    To say me

    I need you
    I need you
    I need you
    To say me

    The sooner we start this life living as we’re loved
    Just put it behind us to see what we’ll become

    The sooner we start this life
    Living as we’re loved

    I need you
    I need you
    I need you
    To say me

    I need you
    I need you
    I need you
    To say me

    I need you
    I need you
    I need you
    To say me

    Hi Martha! Thank you! It’s so easy to talk about David. Glad to hear your daughter enjoyed the Troubadour, the electricity made the hair on your arms stand on end! The closest I’ve come to this type of energy was at the Glass House in Pomona but even that doesn’t compare. David is on a whole other level and what a diverse crowd at the Troubadour. The vibe was different and you could see David feed off of the energy, song after song, need more! Lol. I’m so glad I took the advice to join the crowd downstairs. ((hugs))

    Thanks for your recap 🙂 It struck me that David has appeared on some historical entertainment stages such as Star Search, American Idol and The Troubador. The smallest one among them being the latter, yet he gave the BEST performances of his career in that tiny venue. Happy for you and all the others who were there to bear witness.

    Hey Abrra! Thank you for the weekly puzzle! Love them!

    There was just something extra from him, I just know it was a reaction to the audience love fest. There are those concerts that a few of us will always stand and dance and lots that don’t, and David puts on an amazing show. St George has been a blast every time but just a spark I saw from him, his smile, his eyes, his dancing, all of it just really got into the moment, it was incredible.

    Here’ Monica’s video of Up All Night. Just watch his smile when we all start singing with him, pure love 🙂

    If you plan on welcoming him at the airport, Delta flight #39 will arrive at Hong Kong International Airport, gate 68 at 9pm HK time, 3 August.
    I suppose I should be able to make it there with time to spare if I take the first flight out of here in the morning. Or I could hop on the early afternoon flight.🤔✈

    What I gather from his IG story is that he was awake “up all night” from 3am to 9 am. He is suffering from the time change. Guess he will be doing something on the weekend.

    My guess is he is going to visit the adoption agency or doing a benefit for them.
