New Orion EP in May, West Coast Tour Kicks Off in June! ~ David Archuleta

From David’s Official Site:

“Platinum-selling singer David Archuleta is gearing up for the May 19th release of Orion, the first in a series of new EPs from the international pop star.

Inspired by lessons learned during his two-year missionary trip to Chile, “Numb” — the EP’s lead single, which premiered last November via Billboard — sets the tone for Orion’s mix of self-reflection and pop melody. The song was co-written by Archuleta, Trent Dabbs, and producer Jamie Kenney. “People really want to connect with what’s coming from someone’s heart, from their soul, and what they’re going through,” he tells Billboard. “I feel like [“Numb”] was that for me.”
Archuleta and Kenney teamed up for Orion’s follow-up single, too, co-writing “Up All Night” with Isabeau Miller and Shaun Balin. The song makes its debut on April 21st, roughly one month before the EP’s release.

Archuleta will support Orion’s arrival with a tour of the west coast and southwestern markets, kicking off with his June 1st appearance at the State Theatre in Red Bluff, California. A full list of performance dates is below.

Orion unveils Archuleta’s new sound, mixing his melodies and muscular vocals with stories about his life and recent experiences. It’s not his first album as an adult, but it may be his first truly adult album. Like the constellation that gives the EP its name, Orion burns brightly.
David’s West Coast Tour Dates are below (more to come!):

Thursday, June 1 — Red Bluff, CA – State Theatre

 You’re out of luck if you still want tickets to tonight’s show. It’s Sold-Out! Being a long-time fan, it’s not surprising that most, if not all of the shows on this tour are sold-out, given the incomparable Christmas Show David gives to his audience.  The last Christmas show I went to was at Westbury right before David’s mission. I remember that “What just happened?” feeling we all experienced when the show was over. Euphoria for sure.

Safe travels and the best time to all going tonight. Thanking you in advance for any pictures, videos, tweets and IGs you can share.

What a wildly successful weekend it was! David completed three consecutive concerts at The Tuacahn Amphitheatre, making for a musical hat trick. Thanks to the generous fans who took Periscopes, video and pictures, the rest of us back home were able to witness David’s comeback in real time!  I can’t wait to hear more of his new music because what I have heard thus far is just wonderful!

Safe travels to everyone going home today!

Exciting days coming up with three concerts and great weather ahead. It’s almost one year to the day that David performed at the Tuacahn Amphitheater in St. George, Utah!  He must have been a success because he will again have three concert appearances in the same venue, starting tonight, Thursday, November 3, then Friday, November 4 and concluding on Saturday evening, November 5.  If you’re lucky enough to attend any of the three shows, have a grand ole time and please report back to us, every little detail you remember!

From the Tuacahn website:

“The Tuacahn Amphitheater is a 1920-seat open-air amphitheater…The rear of the stage is open to expose the desertscape and red rock cliffs behind the stage which contains lighting, sound, pyrotechnical, and water effects installations. The area behind the stage is a mixture of natural stone and naturally colored concrete. This concrete riverbed was installed during initial construction to facilitate a massive 55,000 gallon flood of water that comes from the back of the canyon and across the stage toward the audience. Though conceptualized and custom-built for the “Utah!” production, this special effect and other water effects have been featured in numerous productions at Tuacahn.”

Djafan, Dayzee and Jenny and all other fans going: Hope you arrive safely!  It’s 55 and sunny in St. George, according to my Weather Ap. Enjoy yourselves. Wish we all could join you!

And look what we have here! The lyric video for “Numb”, already with close to 2.500 views in a matter of minutes!

Three concerts and the release of “Numb” all in one week! Can we collectively scream “Yayyyyy!” Haha Been waiting for something, anything new from David. Hearing his voice on new material is like unwrapping a big box of chocolates. Warm, exciting and delicious.

Amazon is offering David’s single “Numb” as a pre-order purchase on November 4th. Have you heard the snippet yet?  His voice is so crisp and beautiful and is it just me or do I detect a little Southern accent like a Nashville influence in his voice?

Amazon link to pre-order and listen to snippet:   HERE!

Product Details

Rhiminee captured the lyrics to “Numb” below. Thanks Rhiminee!

I think I’ll take a second chance
I won’t be passing by these waters again
Wanna feel redemption’s hand
See this life only for what it, what it is
I know the river’s not too wide
I can see it for myself with my own eyes
Someone out there’s on my side
It’s not my place to question why

CHORUS
Everybody needs time away
To wake up with the sun on their face
I’m not there yet but i know
That I don’t wanna feel numb
Falling over all of my shadows
Yeah I’m all done
Cuz none of that ever really mattered
It hurts to live so wide awake, oh
But it’s a chance I can take
I won’t run run run

Cuz I don’t wanna feel numb

So deep inside these hills I run
To a place where I can see til Kingdom Come
See the days one by one
And love this life only for what it, what it is
I hear the whispers in the stars
The words that tell us more of who we are
Someone out there’s not that far
Everything I need is here now

REPEAT CHORUS

Yeahhhh

A time away brought to life
Rushing over every doubt of mine
Open soul open sky
Everything, everything is right
I don’t wanna feel numb
Falling over all of my shadows
Yeah I’m all done
Cuz none of that ever really mattered
It hurts to live so wide awake, oh
But it’s a chance I can take
I won’t run run run (x2)

I don’t wanna feel numb (x3)

By Guest Writer FenFan, “David Archuleta Tours Taiwan”

Posted by bebereader on Wednesday, August 10, 2016

ClsOAuQVAAEcESE.jpgsaffprdcredit: Shelley

Patience has paid off for fans of David Archuleta in Taiwan. After waiting 8 long years, they are finally going to see the guy they call Sunshine David perform in Taiwan from August 11 – 17, 2016. The tour, at the invitation of the LDS Church, will take him to seven cities around the island in as many days. 
Here’s the schedule, according to David Archuleta in Taiwan Facebook page:

10 August 10am     Press Conference, Jinhua Street Church in Taipei

11 August   7:30pm Forget Year, Know Music Concert, Taichung Seaport Art Center in Taichung

12 August 7:30pm     Love in the Family Concert, Tainan Cultural Center in Tainan

13 August 2pm            LDS Community Awards Ceremony and Concert, Jinhua Street Church in Taipei

14 August  2pm             Concert of Hymns and Chinese Music, Tzu Chi University Hall 8101 in Hualien

15 August 2pm               Appointment with Youth Concert, National Hsinchu Commercial and Vocational High School Stadium in Hsinchu

16 August  7:30pm          Hope, Love Public Benefit Concert, Chiayl City Culture Center Music Hall in Chiayi

17 August 7:30pm           Concert (Untitled), Kaohslung Labor Affairs Bureau 1st Floor Auditorium in Kaoslung

I googled some of the venues and found that the concert hall in Taichung seats 546 people. It is equipped with a proscenium stage and the building’s white roof is shaped like a bamboo hat. If the title of the concert here sounds a bit strange it’s because it’s a word for word translation of 忘 年 知 音 which I do not know how to translate into English! 忘 = forget, 年 = year or age, 知 = know, 音 = music or sound.

Taichung is in central Taiwan, just over a two-hour drive from Taipei.  From Taichung, David will head south to Tainan, about two hours by car.  He will perform at the Tainan Cultural Center which has a Performance Hall in a 3-storyed building.  The Hall has 1803 seats in a fan-shaped area. The Cultural Center also has what is called “The Native Theater International Hall” which seats 260.

Next, it’s back to Taipei for his performance at the LDS Community Awards at the LDS Temple in Jinhua Street.  The temple was the earliest  meeting place for Mormons in Taiwan.

Taiwan-Taipei-JUL-2010-004_slider1

After the Awards, David will head to Hualien, two and a half hours by train or 45 minutes by plane from Taipei, on the east coast of Taiwan.  David will be singing hymns at this Sunday performance at Tzu Chi University.  Tzu Chi U is a private university set up by the Buddhist Tzu Chi Foundation and is well-known for its College of Medicine.  But I think this performance has nothing to do with the University and they are just using the facilities.

Midway through the tour, David will be in Hsinchu in northwestern Taiwan. Hsinchu, known as the Windy City, is home to six universities and many elementary, middle and high schools.  So it’s no wonder the concert here is billed as an “Appointment With Youth”.

After Hsinchu, David moves south again to Chiayi where he will perform at the Music Hall in the Chiayi City Culture Center which also has a museum and a library.  The Music Hall has 1113 seats.  It’s stage curtains were designed by Chinese master painter, Lin Wu-Shan.  They are made of hand-woven silk and satin and have a lotus pond theme.
 
According to the David Archuleta in Taiwan Facebook page, David will be the only performer in the Chiayi concert. Rumor has it that he will be singing a new song that he is currently recording, at this concert and at the next one in Kaohsiung. David’s performance in Kaohsiung will be the final one of this tour.  
 
 taiwanese-culture-secrets_025
Kaohsiung, in the south, is Taiwan’s largest port and second largest city. The Love River which runs through the city is a popular sight-seeing spot. Visitors can take long walks or cycle along the river banks or go water skiing. There are also lots of cafes, bars and restaurants on the river banks.
 Love River

I hope that despite his busy schedule, David can find time to see some sights and sample some of the delicious cuisine of Taiwan. First on the list – stinky tofu – smelly cubes of deep fried tofu, crispy on the outside and like soft custard on the inside, slathered with a sweet and spicy sauce. I don’t like it but I think David should take a bite just so he can say he’s had a taste of this iconic Taiwanese snack. He’ll just have to hold his nose while eating it.

stinky-tofu-646

If stinky tofu is not to his liking he can try some beef noodles, fish balls (not what you think! these are minced fish shaped into balls), braised or roast goose, suncakes or taiyang bing (crispy, crumbly pastries filled with honey or taro paste), oyster omelettes, lurou fan (five-spice braised pork spooned over rice), and san bei ji or three-cup chicken (so-called because the chicken is cooked in a cup each of oil, soy sauce and wine). I could go on and on but you get the drift. There’s lots to eat! Oh and before he goes home, he should buy some pineapple pastry as a food souvenir. These small pastries are made of candied pineapple wrapped in a buttery, crumbly pie crust.

Finally, if there is just one thing I hope David would do, it would be to sing a song in Mandarin. How about this one – The Moon Represents My Heart (Yuèliàng dàibiǎo wǒ de xīn) – a classic romantic ballad made popular by Teresa Teng, arguably the most famous Mandarin pop singer in the world at the time of her death in 1995.

PS  Some useful Mandarin phrases David could say or hear at his concerts.
– Hello: Nǐ hǎo
– Good evening: Wǎnshàng hǎo
– Thank you: Xièxiè
– Thank you for welcoming me to Taiwan: Xièxiè dàjiā huānyíng wǒ dào táiwān
– I love you: Wǒ ài nǐ  He might not want to say this but if he hears it he would at least know what they are yelling and he can reply xiexie!
– Sunshine David: 陽光 大衛 Yángguāng Dà wèi. This is the nickname that the Taiwanese have given him.
