pikepss Weekly on David Archuleta

Good Morning Honeybees and friends! Welcome to our Weekly Buzz Wrap-up on David Archuleta! This past week we have a new Christmas album release date, cancelled concert dates, rescheduled concerts and the anticipation of Christmas concerts to be announced for November and December 2009. What will David be doing in September and most of October? Promotion tours, radio, TV, interviews I hope, or perhaps that needed rest he deserves! Very unlikely about the rest, but he surely needs one. But check in on Weekly Buzz Wrap and we’ll tell you what you’ve missed! This week’s Buzz is full of good and plenty. Let’s get started!


Reviews and Interviews

18 August

David Archuleta’s Show at Grand Rapids, The Intersection Rocks, Surprisingly — Lorilee Craker — The Grand Rapids Press
About 450 concertgoers, ages 6 to 60, screamed like crazy through the 2008 American Idol runner-up’s show, yelling and squealing every time the teen idol sang a sweet lyric, gestured in a particularly handsome way, or uttered a sentence.
His voice is fantastic, a lustrous tenor with an unaffected shot of blues, and he has a way of performing that draws people in, belying his tender age. In fact, Archuleta’s set exceeded my expectations. It was even better than Daughtry’s early solo shows.

(Great Article about David and his performance — A must read)

20 August

JustJaredJr.- MLive.com — David Interviewed on Holiday Record, Solo Shows and Teen Choice Awards –
On his holiday record, David stated “I’m really excited about the Christmas Album, because it will show a side of music that I connected to on the show, but not so much with the pop music. It’s all about those emotional and heartfelt songs.”

Solo Shows — “I love doing my own shows. Everyone who comes out to the show actually paid to watch you perform, which is a strange thought if you really think about it — The crowd feels a lot more intimate, and I feel like I’m at a more personal level at my own shows. There’s just a great vibe that I feel from the audience, and it only makes me want to put on a better show.”

TCA — “I think the breakout artist award was the most surprising and exciting for me, because it feels like I’ve been able to keep myself moving forward and continuing after American Idol.”

David’s show at Fairfax, Virginia was no surprise. He was in great voice and when he sang Barriers, he just killed the crowd. It was perfect! Somebody Out There — everyone clapping to the music and following every breath and word he sang — all eyes on David with so many screams of pure delight and excitement.

21 August

Hershey, Pennsylvania — David kicked a beach ball into the audience and hit a girl in the face, apologized of course, was looking at the sunset, never seen a sunset while he was performing before and thanked Demi for bringing him on tour. His singing was perfect as usual and he seemed to enjoy the crowd and being outside, although the show was cut short due to a “potentially dangerous storm,” according to David. He cut two songs from his set and Demi cut four songs from hers. Someone gave him a rose on stage and a teddy bear was next to the drums. Whipped cream somehow got into the act and Mike and Dave got it on their faces. HaHa! A very good ending to a lovely summer tour.

18 August

Video blog — David say he is excited about performing in Clarkston as it is an amphitheater and he loves them! Happy and appreciates his voice! Just got it back yesterday and is thrilled! Happy he has had Ashlee with him for the last couple of weeks, he said it was nice to have someone to hang out with from back home. (Very cute video blog and as usual get distracted with something else going on and forgets his train of thought.)

18 August — Snarky Archies — Nicole’s Clarkston’s VIP Meet and Greet

At the meet and greet at Clarkston there were about 30-40 people for David’s VIP. They waited for about an hour, then Kristin said David will be showing up in a golf cart soon! HaHa! David arrived with Ashlee and they all screamed and clapped. David grabbed a watermelon and looked all happy to eat one. HaHa! He ate it and tried talking too. He said it was cool coming here in a golf cart!

(The idea of David running around in a golf cart cracks me up. He is known not to be the best driver, he get distracted easily! HaHa!)

19 August

David’s name has been in three game shows as an answer, Jeopardy, Catch 21 and The List. I am sure we can expect more to come!

20 August

Tony Orlando on QVC — selling Time Life Romancing the 70’s 8 CD set. He mentions David!!

He says you know David Archuleta from AI, he a great singer/artist! I gave him one of the CD sets and you thought I gave him Gold!!

(David appreciates each and every gift that is given to him!)

No Gifts at VIP — starting with the Hershey VIP David will not be able to accept gifts from fans as he will not have the tour bus, therefore, no means to stash or transport his gifts. FROM I LOVE ALL ACCESS TEAM

(Besides he probably doesn’t have the time to open any more gifts as he twittered the other night. It’s starting to overwhelm him, poor thing.)

Human Interest

17 — August — David and KSM! — KSM said that David would be in one of their webisodes on Teen.com. He comes in at about :47!

18 August — Came across this written by MasterClassLady:

Found that several people had tweeted me this wonderful performance by David The Great Archuleta. I am always astounded at the pitch-perfect clarity of his voice. His vocal tone is so transparent and centered. Also, the soulful essence of his performing style is really evident in this performance of “Bubbly”. He gets better and better with age — a true vocal genius.

People reports that Shania Twain will fill guest judge’s spot in Chicago on Aug. 30 & 31.

21 August
Washington Examiner Article
Lovato was in town (Washington) taking a tour of the White House as she twittered “just chillen” as David Archuleta in town, chose work over play, laying down some tracks at Omega Studios in Rockville while Lovato took in the sights.
