Jan’s recaps: 3 David Archuleta concerts in 4 days!

Posted by bebereader on Sunday, April 3, 2016

Richfield
     “There he is!”  I was checking my phone for any David news as we were going into Richfield.  “He’s on the same highway that we are on, Dayzee!”  Sure enough after winding around a few roads, there were the same signs that were in David’s Instagram!  We are here!  Later there was more excitement to see him walk out on that stage with his big smile and waving.  Oh, the yelling, clapping, standing ovations; he had them all!
 
Like I’ve said, the whole world needs to hear that voice. It’s just something special to see him live…he has that “light”.  Got to meet up with Shawna and Patty again.  Hadn’t seen them since Motab. The big surprise was when Nathan came out and sang “The Prayer” with David.

 OMGosh, I never, ever thought I would get to see that live.  At the end, David had a little girl come on stage while he sang “Glorious”.

When leaving, I saw a bottle on stage and went down and got it with the help of a stage hand.  Thought I had a David bottle, but when I watched the video of them singing “The Prayer”, it shows Nathan taking a drink and sitting the bottle right down where I picked it up…so…it was Nathan’s water bottle and not David’s!  ;)  well, he’s second best!  LOL
 
On to Queen’s Creek – 1st concert
     There was an early dinner at Olive Garden before the concert where we met up with Kalei and her bunch.  It was Linda’s birthday and she was surprised to find out that she was going to meet David in person!  Awesome!
 
Dayzee’s and my seats were apart and I got to sit between some “fuddy duddies”!  *~X( at wits' end  No arm swinging with lighted cameras, no singing and swaying!  They might not have been in the swing of things, but it didn’t stop me!  haha.  The 3 on my right left when David left the stage.
 
What?  no encore??  How can anyone leave with David on fire!!!  But of course there was one!  It left me on a high all night!  He was so good!
 IMG_0095 credit: Jan
Queen’s Creek – 2nd concert
     Gwen couldn’t make it, so Dayzee sat in her seat and Dayzee’s seat went to Victoria!  I sat next to SuzyQ and it was good to see her again.  Got to meet Pat and Sweetonda, Tawna and hubby, DJAfan and more.
 
After hearing “7 Years” live 3 times in a row, I give in!  David puts his all in that song, he is incredible! There is nothing like David feeding off the electric frenzy of the fans.  I felt like a teenager again!  It is with love that I listened to his little speeches before his songs that gives messages on him staying in music.  Don’t ever quit singing David!
 
 It was the night before Easter and I was hoping David would sing something special and he did!  It was beautiful.
 
credit 8throwcenter

 It was so new to him he read the words from his phone and sang it perfectly.  Feeling it in his heart, he was breaking down at the end as we all were.  Thank you David, you never let us down!

 What a joyous trip! It wouldn’t have happened without the super nice Dayzee doing all the driving!  😀

Dayzee’s recap from Arizona: “I Love David Archuleta Fans!”

Posted by bebereader on Wednesday, March 30, 2016

CelzTTtWsAQxx6kcredit: Shelley

The first night in Arizona the gathering of fans began early at the Olive Garden. So great to have a group of people who don’t cut you off when you mention David. Haha

Screen-Shot-2016-03-25-at-9_05_59-PMAll photos property of Dayzee unless stated otherwise

Jan and I reached the venue an hour early and there were fans milling around everywhere. Met old friends, some we had not seen since the last time we were in Arizona (home of the infamous chair scooting incident). Some we had met at Tuacahn last fall. Seeing those familiar faces is just what you need when your tummy is full of butterflies and you are so high you can’t keep track of your tickets and keys.

doorDavid’s pic on the door

The door of the venue was covered with a pic of David and fans were standing in line to take photos of themselves with that David pic. Jan said when the line slowed down she would take a picture of that herself, but the line was constant and even longer after the performance.

Inside, Jan and I separated as we had bought our tickets separately. I was by myself but had a ticket for front row center. Yayy! As I found my seat a girl jumped up from the adjoining chair and said “I hope we don’t make too much noise for you.” LOL. As I got to know this new fan I realized she was pretty much the opposite of me. She was 18, I was 81. It was her first time to see David, it was about my fifty-first. We no doubt had little in common, yet here we were, side by side at a David concert.

I showed her some videos on my phone from the Richfield concert. She was quite excited at the thought of getting her own videos and promptly started taping. About half way through the show I told her I would have to stop because my phone was almost dead. She said, “No problem” and hooked me up with a power plug she had found right on the edge of the stage. What??? Arizona not only let you take all the video you wanted, but helped you power up. I love Arizona.

My new friend Nicole was absolutely delightful. She helped me get through “Everybody Hurts” and I helped her through “7 Years”. You know, sometimes David is just overwhelming and you need a hand to clasp or a thigh to squeeze.

As soon as David left the stage I helped Nicole jump up and she gathered set lists and water bottles, handing them to fans standing at the edge of the stage. Everyone loved her. She scampered from the stage, barely escaping the grasp of the stage police.

IMG_0131According the David, the way we will be watching him drink water now since he has decided it’s weird to have 700 people watch you drink

IMG_4733It makes me happy every time I open the refrigerator door.

Nicole came and gave me a hug the second night. Perhaps we will meet again when David visits Arizona. I will not worry about her because I know she has the very best role model. Makes me happy to know there are new young fans. How long can we old ladies carry this banner anyway?

I had not met SuzieQ before, but was fortunate to be sitting next to her on the second night. I loved her for the respect and enthusiastic admiration she showed David.

Remember all those one-armed hugs we used to get from David? They have evolved into two-armed hugs of appreciation that are shared by fans of all ages everywhere!

Tawna’s Been Thinking…About David Archuleta

Posted by bebereader on Sunday, December 20, 2015

Been thinking….

I’m so glad that I was able to witness David through his ‘growing’ years. The time when he was hanging onto the mic stand for dear life in his baggy pants and T-shirts. Oh, and the scarves.

345credit: Google Images

Then he became like a spring, bouncing around the stage carrying the mic with him, killing us with flirty eyebrows, and wearing better fitting  jeans and different kinds of shirts (there was that awesome pink shirt and still the scarves) and had the amazing hair styles.

tumblr_lopk7qnJGO1qg0bgio1_500art edit found on Tumblr – Ponds teen concert

But now, I’m perfectly content with who David is. What he has become. Still the handsome, humorous and witty David that we’ve been watching since 2007, but a man who is comfortable with who he is. A man who isn’t afraid to tell the world what he’s thinking and how he got to the point he is at now. A performer who has developed more fashion sense in the clothes he wears on stage (we’ve still seen some scarves🙂 ) and yet isn’t afraid to wear the most wrinkled shirt in the closet around town, if that’s the mood he’s in.

I do miss the amazing hair, but I also don’t mind the toned down look — he wears it well. With the head of hair he owns… wow!  I love when he uses the flirty eyebrows and points those long fingers, and dances little snippets of fancy footwork here and there. No bouncing around, but some seriously great stage presence (he owns it).

I’m just happy to be a fan of the most beautiful and versatile Voice on the planet. And, of the most beautiful, inside and out, honest man that owns that Voice. The Voice that is definitely a gift and a treasure. The Voice that David uses to make others happy and peaceful.

You bet, I’m a fan forever! ♥♥

David Archuleta in Concert November 6 & 7, Tuacahn Amphitheatre Saint George, Utah!

Posted by djafan on Tuesday, November 3, 2015

ST. GEORGE READY FOR THE DAVID ARCHULETA CONCERT!

Sounds like a gorgeous theater!

Tuacahn Amphitheater

The Tuacahn Amphitheater is a 1920-seat open-air amphitheater. It consists of three sections of sdownload (1)eating (Left, Right,
Center) with 32 rows A (front) – FF (rear). All seats have backs and arms, but are not cushioned. Entrance to the amphitheater is from the rear, requiring all patrons to descend the stairs toward their seats. Patrons with limited mobility are encouraged to sit near the top (rear) of the amphitheater. There is extra leg room on row O which is sometimes used during the productions when actors walk through the audience. Wheelchair accessible seating is available on the back row (FF) only. The stage has a concrete subfloor with a concrete pass-under tunnel to get from stage left to stage right out of view of the audience. 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.

I’ll be heading out Friday morning to Saint George.  I’m not a natural video taker lol but I’ll scope things out and see what’s doable :)))  I’m sudownloadper excited and this week is taking for ever!!!  Through the kindness of others I will be taking several grandkids who had wanted to attend and now are.  David fans are incredible.  Thank you.

Gladys is also on her way to the states to see David Archuleta in concert for the first time!  I can’t wait to meet her and others, and those I haven’t seen in some time.  It’s going to be great!

“Riding on Clouds” – Dayzee’s recap of David Archuleta’s concerts in Layton

Posted by bebereader on Sunday, September 27, 2015

leadphoto credit Shelley#2015

The long drought was finally over! The two shows in Idaho Falls had been the stuff we dreamed about for years. Our golden voice was back. We were riding on clouds. Saturday night our euphoria suddenly ended in Layton. I was second row center and could see David’s lips moving and heard no sound. A short “erk”, a small “ech”. People behind me were saying there was something wrong with the sound, but I could see it was something wrong with David. After a valiant effort to sing several songs, David left the stage.

He came back with Kirt Bateman, Executive Director of Davis Arts Council to announce David would return with a Christmas gift for us. Mr. Bateman’s arm was around David while on the stage. How many times have we seen that picture? David draws hugs.

You have probably read Kirt’s email to us, but I want to repeat it here:

“Mr. Archuleta with a fever, no voice, aching body, and virtually no energy, went out on that stage in front of 1700 expectant people on Saturday and, like the true star he is, gave them all that he had! Why? …. he’s a man of integrity and wanted to give you the show he had planned and rehearsed for you.”

David talking the words to MKOP was the most memorable part of that evening for me. He said he did not want to spoil the words with his imperfect singing voice. It was the most moving rendition of that song I have heard.

Monday night was better, but all singing done low-key and in a lower key. No high notes. Few glory notes, though he often made the effort. At least he was singing. Love and respect were tangible.

Both nights David’s band led by Kendra did a number without David to give him a rest. They were great.

Loved the brother/sister act. David ran off the stage mid-concert. We were so worried. A minute later he returned with sister in tow. He announced that she was going to speak for him so he could save his voice to sing. Pretty obvious that she had not volunteered for this assignment. A little hemming and hawing and then she said she only found out about this an hour ago.

David got in her face “Excuses, excuses” he said as a brother would. Jazzy grudgingly began (as a sister would) and soon became more comfortable and smiley.  Later she returned and did a second reading of his notes.

Towards the end David said he had not had enough time to write any more thoughts out for Jazzy to read. He told us he wanted to talk to us and tell us things but he also wanted to sing for us. There was such anguish in his voice, on his face. A little leaking around the eyes.

I did not expect him to come out for an encore. He seemed completely spent. But there he was. Still gamely giving his all for us. His mother and her sister were lovely and covered much of the singing on the encore.

My companion that night had never seen David in person. I told her she would love him. And she did. Her favorite song was Glorious and I never expected David to last long enough to sing that last song.

Could not have asked for more.

David Archuleta #DA2014 Video “We Are Still Here!!”

Posted by djafan on Friday, January 3, 2014

i'll be back

We’re down the home stretch now for David’s return!  Almost two years ago the I’ll Be Here #DA2014 project was created to let David know we would wait for him and he said he would be back!!

Both video and slide show below were shared with David.

Kizoa slideshow: DA2014Slideshow

WElcome-Back-David-11

We want every fan to participate!  So please spread the word!  See Monica’s message below.

Hey friends,

Happy New Year!  Although David isn’t returning from his mission for a few months still, we thought it might be good to get a head start on planning for a great welcome home video for him.  The video we did before he left was super rushed so this time around we hope to get a photo submission from anyone who wants to be included.  Please help spread the word to any fans who you know are not usually online by emailing this note to them directly.

The original message of the #DA2014 campaign was meant to unite ALL fans around the idea of supporting David unconditionally and letting him know that we’ll always be here for him.  The spirit of this video will be all about welcoming him back and reminding him that we are STILL here for him and that he was always in our hearts over the past two years.  We also want to communicate to him that whatever he chooses to do next in his career or personal life – we just want the best for him.  We want him to feel the love and loyalty, not any pressure!

So with that in mind, here are the guidelines for the photo submissions.

1. Submit a photo *ONE PHOTO PER PERSON* (in JPEG format) of yourself holding a sign (or with a sign Photo-shopped on an existing photo) that says the following:

Welcome-back-2

Welcome Back David!

(Still here)

Your name or Twitter handle

Your location

#DA2014

PLEASE FOLLOW ORDER ABOVE EXACTLY SO ALL SIGNS WILL LOOK THE SAME

Group photos are fine.  Writing the sign in your native language is fine.  If you would rather not include a photo of yourself, you can submit just a photo of the sign itself.

If you are not taking a new photo, ideally it would be great to use a recent photo of yourself from the last two years.  If you happened to do any interesting things in the spirit of #DA2014 (i.e. volunteering, working on your fitness etc.), it would be cool to show a photo of yourself doing that activity.

Feel free to get as creative as you like with the signs – just make sure that they follow the format above.  Please do not include any extra words or phrases as we want them to look uniform. ** And please only submit one photograph for each individual.**

PHOTOS NOT FOLLOWING THE FORMAT WILL GET RETURNED TO THE SENDER FOR EDITING.

Please email submissions with the subject line #DA2014 RETURN VIDEO to:

DavidArchuleta2014@gmail.com

No later than 12 noon PST on March 1st, 2014

If you need assistance using Photoshop or making a JPEG file, please specify that in your email by using the subject line: TECH SUPPORT and we will find a way to help you out.  Hopefully given the extra time, everyone who wants to participate will be able to do so.

Happy 2014 to everyone!  Looking forward to receiving your photo!

Thanks so much!

–Monica
