The next leg of the tour started tonight at the Mesa Arts Center in Mesa, AZ.  Our own djafan is there enjoying the show! Wonder where she is sitting.

Shelley is there too, and has shared her Periscope videos. Watch Shelley’s Twitter page for the latest.

Looks like another excellent show. I’m sure a lot more video will surface overnight.

    David’s show in AZ last night was magical as usual. He brought his Benjimin Moore jeans 😉 Taking video was not allowed so not too much to find.

    Watching David sing I Can Only Imagine was the high point of my entire trip to Arizona. When he finished singing my first thought was “I need that song”. How great that when I came to The Voice there was the perfect video gift from Shelley. As I watched the video I was surprised to see Nick and Desmond on stage with David. It had been one of those performances where you only see David. To find Abrra had added it to the candy jar was awesome.

    Grateful to Benjamin Moore.

    Fen, for some reason it makes me smile to think of you diving into the “new stuff”. Waiting to see your response.

    Also, I heard that he will be on Good Morning America on Monday morning. ♥ Awesome, David!

    Dayzee, glad you got to hear him sing I Can Only Imagine live. It is always a treat to be able to hear him live on certain songs. They are so embedded in my memories.


  11. Dayzee said

    I’m thinking Amor Prohibido might appear on David’s Spanish album.

    I want to tell you my version of an incident in Mesa. David is onstage with his band, the venue is packed, it is the middle of a beautiful, professional concert. Suddenly a woman in the middle of the audience hollers at David. Between English and Spanish it is established that she is the aunt of 2 missionaries David knew in Chile. Then the aunt asks if she can have a hug. We watch David’s quirky mind process this request. In what world would a fan be allowed to interrupt a concert? David’s world, of course. Auntie hustled herself down to the stage and David comes to the very edge. There is a 4 foot drop to the floor, with no access. Lady stands on tippy toes and David leans as far down as possible. Lady grabs
    David and he almost falls in our laps. I can’t say I was hoping he wouldn’t. After the dust settled, David announced “That lady gives strong hugs!” and the music continued.

    Jan I loved your “embedded in our memories” comment. We do have lovely memories with David as the main character.

    Abrra, that’s a great picture for the puzzle. That’s just how beautiful it was there in the red rock canyon. Aside from the great amount of wind, it was an absolutely beautiful evening spent with David and the Band. Dang it! They are so good. That’s why I keep going back. ♥ I was sitting next to a young girl, probably 13 years old, who was soooo excited she just couldn’t contain herself. I could tell, before the concert started, that she had some concerns sitting next to an ‘old man and lady’. How awful could that possibly be to be sitting next to some great-grandparents at a David Archuleta concert?! I leaned over and looked right at her, and with a smile told her, “We’re old, but we are both David Fans, so you can scream and clap and dance all you want! It’s not gonna bother us!” She giggled and her older sister smiled and said “Thanks”. The younger girl had a great time with David!

    David only gets better with each passing day. He’s become a true professional. And yet, he’s not a professional that you can’t relate to. Basically, his everyday life is just like the one that any of the rest of us would go through. His alarm goes off, he puts his pants on one leg at a time, he feels the ups and downs of physical and emotional situations, and he has to deal with them. Just like we do. And he lets us know that. I appreciate that. I love the fact that this young man that I admire so much is like me and he tells me that.

    Yes, I’m glad to have been there. To have been inspired, once again, by David. He said some pretty intense things in his lead up to ‘I Can Only Imagine’. Words that gave me some strong stuff to ponder on. David has lived a lot of years in his short 27 years. He’s learned more than I have in my 67 years. I thank him for his insights that help me to work on situations in mine.

    We had gone, on Thursday, to Monticello to see our daughter and her family (and to get our hair cuts). Monticello is on the extreme eastern border of Utah. We then traveled on Friday to St. George, which is on the extreme western border of Utah. There isn’t a direct route straight across from one side to the other, so we went in and out of Arizona and Utah 3 or 4 times before we landed in our hotel room. Oh, to have been a bird on that trip! It was an extremely long drive (ride for me), but I did see things in this beautiful state that I had NEVER seen before. One of those things was a 3+ mile hill that is at an 8% grade. Ron geared the car down (to avoid overheating the brakes) and down we went. Now, I’m a really wimpy person when it comes to steep, scary hills, that drop off one side, and that’s what this hill was. I can say I’ve done that and won’t ever need to do that again!!! :/ There are red, black, and gray rock formations that are incredible across those desert stretches. I wish you could all see them. Dja probably has in her travels to the state.

    Tuacahn is a beautiful place to witness David Archuleta!! ♥♥

    Love your message, Tawna. I was blessed to be able to see him a few times in Tuachan but it was at night and had turned cold. But us fans didn’t care as David was hot as usual!
    David has a way of making everyone comfortable he is so down to earth. I think that is what everyone loves about him. No one feels beneath him…just a good ol’ boy. Someone you would want to hang out with and have fun.

    Your trip to Monticello sounded like a “trip” all right. Quite a road trip for sure. When I was out there I got to see things that I never heard of before. Dayzee was so great showing all the good places. Just a lot more good memories. Thank you David and all his fans…they are the best.

    “Take a step, even when you fall it ain’t over yet. If you’re in the crossfire don’t forget, that you don’t have to be #invincible .” I have a tendency to give up on things. The feelings of not being good enough or simply being unmotivated have kept me laying in bed all day before. I’ve wanted to give up on school, on my career, on trying new things, and on myself a lot. It’s a battle that seems to not go away. I’ve also had to battle with an addictive personality. I’ve lost control to food, to video games, to anger, holding grudges, to pornography, fetishes, abuse and being manipulated (It’s a strong emotion that yes you can get addicted to and latch onto craving—even seeking after it) self-pity, excuse-seeking, and overall negative thinking. To social media, and yes, music. 🤯 You may not think all of these things are bad, but all of these things I have at some point lost self-control. But you know what? I keep trying. Through prayer and crying out to God, having family and close friends listen to me when I feel helpless and feel like giving up. They walk alongside me, cry with me, and help me get back on my feet when I’m lying on the ground. They’ve inspired me to become more than I thought I was. God knows we’re not perfect. He knows our bodies and minds provide us with plenty of weaknesses. But rather than letting them get the best of us, let us become stronger through them. “Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.” – 2 Cor 12:10 I get discouraged. I get frustrated. I get distracted. I get lazy. I get angry. I get moody. I get suspicious of others’ intentions. I get lonely. But the more I go through it all I can look back and say “I got through it.. I fought through.” And that’s what matters. A moment of hope and inspiration also shines in the darkness. If you’ve felt like giving up, feel like a failure, feel like you’ve lost self-control, like you’re not good enough.. Know you’re not alone, and in your weakness you can be made strong. We weren’t designed to live perfectly, but we were designed to keep trying and overcome. 💪

    There is some heavy stuff expressed or shall I say confessed in that post. It reads like something one of the sisters said on her IG. Nothing like the strong, spoken with conviction, attitude he showed in the I’m Alive video.

    I agree with you 100%, Abrra. I felt like he was in a confessional when I was reading that. And right, he’s not unique in the things he was writing (telling) about. It’s just so strange that he put out there on social media. So unlike David and his ‘privacy act’. I’m not dissing on him about being private, either. I think more people need to be more private. I guess we’ll just all hang in and hang on for what’s around the corner.

    Wondering the same thing, Abs. Amber has had similar blogs on Instagram. I would think he has the world be the tail, so to speak. Maybe he has had too much, too soon. He’s working his butt off, that’s for sure and has traveled so much for his age. I’m just a thankful fan and always will be. ♥

    Well I was surprised by his post, not by what was written but that he shared it at all. These are things that humanity struggle with, some more some less. That he felt the need to share brought me to tears, I don’t wish these struggles on anyone. The amount of support in all the responses are incredible, maybe that’s what he needed, to see he is not unlike most and that we love and support him anyways.

    Make sure you have an ad blocker extension on all your browsers . Pop up ads are the most common way for creeps to steal info. I once got a bad link from clicking on something innocent on Facebook. I get fake emails that show the name of people in my address book, but it’s just a link for something silly. I wave over the address and put it directly into spam folder.

    Hi Ray! I agree with you on David too. It’s one thing to go through all those things, which most people do at one time or the other in their life. But to put it on social media is another thing. I still feel the same way for him that I have for the last 10 yrs and will never change. He is so special.
    Tawna, I have those selfishdesires too! 🙂

    My daughter who lives by Tuacahn teaches fifth grade. She just sent me a text telling me how difficult it has been keeping the students focused for these last few days of the school year and she thought some music might help settle them down. She asked them what they would like to hear. David Archuleta was their unanimous choice and the play list began with Up All Night followed by Crush. Of course she thought I would be interested and sent me a text direct from the classroom. Love her and her class

    I went to Yakima and Richland to see David. I lived in that area in 1944 and had not been back since, so I was curious. I had planned to go by myself, but at the last minute my granddaughter joined me. I could get her a ticket for Yakima, but Richland was sold out. David’s venue in Yakima was originally a church and had beautiful stained glass windows and a large stained glass dome up top. The stage was so shallow there was hardly any room for the drum set and David. Between the stage and the seating was a large tile-floored area, maybe 10 feet deep. The host invited us to ” take pics, videos and come down to the front and dance”. We all looked at each other. Mosh pit!! David looked a little uneasy with the group of fans crowding the stage, but after a suggestion that we not smother each other he put up with us. There were several young girls—maybe 8 to 12 years old—in the front.They were hanging on every word from David about how to be a beautiful person. There were fans I had not seen for years, probably 30 people I would label a “David friend of mine”.

    Monday night my granddaughter dropped me off at Richland High and I went in by myself. No worries, I was sure I would know lots of people. Haha. I knew 6 people: the four on stage, Kari behind the stage and Emily at the merch table. When David asked who was there from the tri-city area everyone raised their hand. It seemed everyone knew everyone else but I didn’t know anyone. I figured they must all be wonderful people because they were David fans, right? Right! Made new friends and hope to see them again next time David goes to Richland. The lady next to me asked how to go about sponsoring some Holt kids. We went to see Emily after the show and this lady found 3 children to sponsor. I asked guitarist Nick for a playlist from the stage floor and I gave it to a teenage girl. No one there had thought of snatching one of those. She was delighted with her souvenir. I found someone to give me a ride to my hotel and we got to talk about David for half an hour. So much fun

    I first heard David sing I Can Only Imagine at the Arizona concert this spring. He said was thinking about it that morning and decided he wanted to sing it for us. And so he would. Many of us were in tears when he finished. Then he went to Texas and I went home. I was hoping to be able to add this song to my music, and was delighted to find Abrra had added it to her fabulous jar.

    A few days later we were at Tuacahn. We arrived at the venue in the afternoon and as soon as I was out of my car I could hear David singing that song. I hurried up the hill to hear him rehearse. He worked on that song for hours. That night he once again sang the song and once again we were filled with emotions. The next night I found they had closed off the area where David was practicing with the band. I could hear short pieces of I Can Only Imagine being sung over and over. That night with only Nick and Desmond with him on stage I listened to him sing that perfected performance. As the applause began to erupt, he picked up his stool and headed for the rear of the stage. With his back to us he was moving a few things around and talking to the band. At that time the entire audience was on their feet for a standing ovation. He continued to mess with stuff and I was afraid he would not see our appreciation. Finally he turned around, looked surprised and softly said “Thank you”. The love in that audience was overflowing. It meant a lot to me because I felt David had worked hard to make it so beautiful.

    Tawna, I appreciate your “thank you”. I know you were at Tuacahn that night. I felt inadequate to describe the performance but felt prompted to make the effort to share my gratitude for David’s gifts. I have been thinking about how David has impacted my life for ten years and still have no idea how he does it.


  95. tawna21 said

    Dayzee, it’s because he is a ‘trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent’ person. Oh, and in scouts we like to add ‘and hungry’ to that. No, seriously, he lives those ideals and that makes him the kind of person that he is. And being that kind of person impacts us, under the radar so we never see it but we feel the reverberations. ♥

    And yes, if he had sung no other song than “I Can Only Imagine”, I would have come away satisfied and wondering what just hit me. It was beautiful and from the depths of his soul. I felt it. ♥

    Dayzee and Tawna, I agree with you both. And I hope I will get to hear him sing it live one day. As I watched the finales of American Idol and The Voice, it was entertaining but I always seem to compare them to David and they don’t hold a candle to him! Even the stars that sang…David beats them all!

    I took my daughter-in-law to the Friday night show at Tuacahn this year. It was her first time to see the live David although she has always been a supporter and loved his music. It was great fun to take her and she was a terrific David show companion. About the middle of the performance she told me she had no idea David was so intelligent. When it was over, she said it was wonderful but she was too emotional to put words together. The next morning she sent me this text:
    That’s the word I was trying to find to describe D.A.
    He’s real
    No pretense, nothing artificial. Real!”

    Hey Tawna! BYU tickets?

    I was riding in my daughter’s car when I noticed she was singing along to Alessia Cara’s Scars. I told her the song was one of my favorites. She said it had been around a long time and she never much noticed it, but she had heard someone else sing it lately and it made her think about the lyrics and now she loved it. Huh. I said “That was David at Tuacahn.” “Oh yeah, it was.”

I’m sure we could have booked a cheaper one for our summer vacation, but I don’t know how to play the game so I just took what I could find on that day. I did notice that right after I booked our flights, the same airline and the same flight number raised the seats next to us by several dollars. What a racket. Yes, Abrra, I’m getting on a plane. Just one way though from Philadelphia to SLC. It’s the TSA stuff that stresses me the most. Oh well, it will all be fine…. I keep getting told. 😀

    Peter Hollens & David Archuleta’s Loch Lomond Lyrics

    By yon bonnie banks and by yon bonnie braes,
    Where the sun shines bright on Loch Lomond,
    Where me and my true love will never meet again,

    On the bonnie, bonnie banks of Loch Lomond.

    O you take the high road, and I’ll take the low road,
    And I’ll be in Scotland afore ye,
    But me and my true love will never meet again,
    On the bonnie, bonnie banks of Loch Lomond.

    ‘Twas there that we parted, in yon shady glen,
    On the steep, steep side of Ben Lomond,
    Where in soft purple hue, the hieland hills we view,
    And the moon coming out in the gloaming.

    O you take the high road, and I’ll take the low road,
    And I’ll be in Scotland afore ye,
    But me and my true love will never meet again,
    On the bonnie, bonnie banks of Loch Lomond.

    The wee birdies sing and the wildflowers spring,
    And in sunshine the waters are sleeping.
    But the broken heart it kens, nae second spring again,
    Though the woeful may cease from their grieving.

    O you take the high road, and I’ll take the low road,
    And I’ll be in Scotland afore ye,
    But me and my true love will never meet again,
    On the bonnie, bonnie banks of Loch Lomond.

    A very nice video with David and Peter (looks like they got the horse to mind its business). Their harmonies are amazing. It’s a good thing I enjoy listening to David and Peter, and that the tune is pretty on this song, because the lyrics are really depressing. However, I did order a copy of the single. I may, at some time, go back and order the entire album, or a few of the singles from it. Boy, ‘House of the Rising Sun’ is definitely not the same (even in the same building) as when The Animals did it back in the 60’s. But then, nothing is quite like it was back in the 60’s. 🙂

    Yesterday i was so excited for new David music. Went to find Peter’s music list and there was Loch Lomond. Made a quick purchase. When I played it on my phone there was no David. What? Took a closer look and found it was a 2016 version with Peter and his friends. Didn’t take me long to get that straightened out.

    Getting ready for the Sandy show tonight. My friend will drive and park. I feel pampered. Anticipation of David’s shows make me too nervous to drive.
