David Archuleta ~ Singin’ & Dancin’ in the Rain! Pocatello Pours It On!

Not even torrential downpours could dampen the spirits of enthusiastic fans as they sang and danced the night away in Pocatello, ID – Nathan Pacheco opened for David a ‘la Christmas Tour, and the encore included their beautiful duet of The Prayer.



Pocatello Pours It On!

The day started out sunny with blue skies and puffy white clouds – perfect weather for an outdoor concert! Portneuf Health Trust Amphitheater has a capacity of 11,000 seats – that’s the largest venue on the tour so far!

Fans traveled from everywhere to experience the Orion Tour, which has been getting better and better with each stop – we need to all be at the last show of this tour because it’s going to be off the charts!

David and company were busy in the morning before the show, including a television interview on Channel 6 KPVI – David took to IG to share his excitement over the creative donuts that were provided for them!

Watch the interview here!

Everyone was getting in on the social media action as Chad Truman (pianist), Jay Tibbits (drums) and Kari also posted on Instagram!

We didn’t archive Jay’s or Kari’s IG Stories, so if anyone out there recorded it for posterity before they went poof, please send it our way and we’ll post it!

VIP – Small But Mighty

VIP was a small group, but everyone enjoyed 3 soundcheck songs and the usual chatty David stories – the stage was so big that David seemed a mile away from the front row!

It’s Showtime!

Down Came The Rain!

But the show must go on!

We hear that security was really tight! Shelley was told that she couldn’t bring in her camera, so she recorded and took pics on her phone! Thanks to everyone who shared their pics and vids and streams – it made us all feel like we were right there with you!

I’m posting vids in random order from different fans:

Higher Ground/Band Intro Solos

The addition of band solos during the intro has given each band member some time in the spotlight – and the crowd loves it!

SURPRISE!! Don’t You Worry Child

David surprised us and added a Tuacahn crowd favorite to the set list! The cover Don’t You Worry Child gets the crowd up and jumping and the energy goes through the roof (or to the sky)! Let’s hope it stays on the set list for the rest of the tour!

Shelley’s Periscope contains additional vids including Up All Night and the duet with Nathan, The Prayer.




Despite the rain the wind and the cold, fans were having a fabulous time as David and the band proved Adele right by setting fire to the rain! Changing up the set list makes it feel like a brand new concert!

Here’s a gathering of pics and tweets from around social media:

    Thanks for the new fabulous post. Just when I think David can’t give a better concert he does! The Instagram story of David singing in the rain with that huge crowd standing and singing along is one that David and the fandom will always remember. There were glowing reports from those that were lucky enough to go to that concert. I saw a comment that it was the BEST set list. The crowd was singing along to Crush and swaying. The ovation at the end was long and loud. Nathan had an Instagram story showing David at VIP and singing Crush in the rain. Bravo David!

    • GrammyJ says:

      Kimk you must love that David jumped during Don’t You Worry child and the whole huge crowd jumped too. Just like Zero Gravity days.

      • kimk says:

        omg lol wasn’t it great loved all of it.. funny think fav was actually He Lives In You Shelley’s great periscopes (hope they will be saved) you could see how much he put into it he was on fire!!!! the crowd was on fire.. even the rain couldn’t put it out!! 😀 I LOVED IT!!

  2. kimk says:

    I couldn’t load this post on my iPad but could on my phone. I think this post might be too loaded for some to see and comment.

  5. Martha says:

    That concert was the tops! the crowd loved him so, whatever he did and sang! I may be wrong but he almost broke out in dance on UAN! He literally feeds off the crowd!

    • GrammyJ says:

      I agree! He moved more for UAN than he has at his other concerts. I thought that he might do the dance routine but didn’t quite do it. He really does feed off the crowd. That was one of his best crowds IMHO.

  6. VaBeachJudyu says:

    THANKS Kalei for the FANTASTIC post! One for the ages! What a concert and what a crowd! Thanks so much Shelley for the periscope ….what AWESOME quality! So many GREAT instagrams, vids and comments! FUN WAS BAD BY ALL! David and the band get to do it again tonight! 🙂

  7. kimk says:

    umm silly question but what was the new song?

    • VaBeachJudy says:

      My guess, I’m Ready since it’s going to be on the up coming EP?

      • kimk says:

        yeah but think the interview said it was one he was to perform for the first time or such he has been singing that one. lol I don’t know in the dark here as usual.

  8. VaBeachJudy says:

    Hmmmm, where did the u come from? lol

  9. GrammyJ says:

    There is another concert tonight!! I think it is sold out too. Gotta love Utah’s support for David.

  10. Marylee-NorthCarolinaGirl says:

    Finally able to get on & just want to say how fabulous Shelley’s Periscopes were. How special that she was able to bring each individual performance over to Twitter ~ what a night! Thanks Kalei for your fantastic recap…nice captures and tweets shared by the lucky fans that attended. So glad the rain cooperated! BTW, David’s rendition of “He Lives In You” just keeps getting more powerful each time he performs it. He feels that song and the lyrics behind it as much or more than any other…makes me feel it too❤️

  11. Marylee-NorthCarolinaGirl says:

    I just commented on last night’s concert…noticed it did not go through. Wondering if use of an ipad, as n my case, has anything to do with the glitches mentioned by others. Will try again later..mostly just want to thank all for sharing their experiences thru vids and tweets. It is so appreciated by those of us back home.

  12. Marylee-NorthCarolinaGirl says:

    oops…there it is🙂

    I hope people will continue to be respectful and treat you like a human being. I think it’s easy to fall into wanting piece of that glitter

    my exact question was what r his feelings about fame and Justin Bieber level of fame. He said nobody’s comfortable being put

    on a pedestal that much and not being treated as human beings. He says ppl used to scream and chase him at malls so he

    doesn’t go anymore. He has his family to keep him grounded and just tries to be himself. When he sees fans he just says hi

    • Martha says:

      Great question from Jenny. Gave him the opportunity to speak to his fans about a delicate subject. “… project fantasies onto someone whose singing moves your emotions.” Wow, telling. Or being put on a pedestal. He notices. He is more fascinating and lovely as a regular human being with his flaws than anything else.

      • kimk says:

        yup great question answer.. kind of thinking this tour is a getting to know you tour restart.. each concert seems to be building steam. David is so the little engine that can.

  14. kimk says:

    well it seems most folks have stopped doing all that for the most part

  15. Moelita says:

    What’s up?

    • Martha says:

      She just touched him for a second and that was all she needed to make her life.

      • GrammyJ says:

        That was so sweet. I love David touching hands during his concert.

        Yes, I think things are calmer now for David when he goes out in public. He can probably go to the mall in Nashville and that’s a good thing. I can’t imagine how it would be to be hounded for autographs when you go out to eat or being chased when shopping!

  16. GrammyJ says:

    I saw an interview awhile ago of a teen idol who said he got so lonely because he was stuck inside hotel rooms. He couldn’t go out because he would be spotted and his fans would go crazy. The life of a teen idol isn’t what it’s cracked up to be. David seems happy now though.

  17. Moelita says:


  18. Moelita says:

    Grammyj, that hmm wasn’t a response to your comment, I just can’t see the latest comments unless I post something.

  19. GrammyJ says:

    David has a cute Instagram with his head of in a ghostbusters body telling about his sold out concert.

  20. alwaysafan says:

    Wow packed post, took me awhile to load it, too many Instagram clips makes it hard to load, had trouble on my laptop too. Gotta go watch some clips, just got home, Davids latest Instagram, he’s such a nut sometimes;)

  21. Moelita says:

    Posting again.

  22. Moelita says:

    How many people were at the concert last? The venue looked huge. We’re all the seats sold?

  23. Tamk says:

    But what if I don’t have periscope but want to watch all the amazing videos?

    OMG! I just watched Shelleys periscope, David sure was on fire! He was all over that stage and dancing up a storm, so good to see him just let loose and really get into the music and have fun;) Not that he didn’t before but even more so now. I really hope he gets to MN, I would LOVE to go to a show:) Thank you Shelley for letting us watch with you;)

  29. GrammyJ says:

    David posted a picture of himself with his dad and grandpa https://instagram.com/p/BVeFWIEFTs1/ for Father’s Day.

    Sounds like he put on another great concert last night. Jazzy put up a couple short videos on Instagram stories.
