– Orem Set List

Here’s the official Orem set list - 17 songs! I wonder if the set list will change for Safford? We’ll try to find vids of all of the songs to add to the Orem playlist.

Shelley added a few more vids to her YT channel! We’ll add these to the Orem Playlist, and she added a few new vids from the Sandy show as well, so check out her channel to see all the goodies!

Thomas Shares His VIP Experience

Screen Shot 2016-06-22 at 2.08.01 AM

Thomas attended his first VIP to meet David!  He shared the excitement of being part of the Lucky 13 who enjoyed an intimate VIP experience!

We were waiting outside the gate at for the M&G to begin. I had told some of the others that my M&G ticket said number 000001 on the back and I thought I must have been the first to buy one! Everyone then realized it would be a small group. 

It was almost 100 degrees so the M&G was held backstage. The band was there, and we waited for David as we chatted and got some water and juice. David came in and said hi. He was right there 8 feet away. Yikes!

He answered some questions we had written down before we entered the venue. Someone asked him in Spanish if he had a girlfriend. He said no, but then said he would not tell us if he did. He got a little flustered. So cute.

He sang JT’s Mirrors and told a story about how he wrote “Who I Am”.  I posted that video on FB. Then he sang “Who I Am”. Then we took pictures. Posted a bunch.

Thanks for sharing your experience Thomas!

Safford Are You Ready?

Archies are gathering in Safford, AZ for not one, but two David shows! Wednesday and Thursday will bring new pics, vids and hopefully Periscopes! Archies share your stories with us!

There’s no opening artist, so this is another 100% David show! Hoping he adds more songs to the set list, since he has more time!

OK Safford Archies – Orem is a hard act to follow, so get up and dance and sing along with David, because he loves the energy and audience participation!

Preparing for the first Safford show which is SOLD OUT!  Thursday’s show still has a few tickets available, and hopefully that will be a sell out too!  Loving all these shows where David packs the venue to bursting – it bodes well for future shows and the upcoming Christmas Tour!

Join us on twitter and FB later today as we bring you all the excitement as it unfolds!

It was another amazing night under the stars as David brought his A-Game (does he even have any other game?) and hypnotized and mesmerized an audience of more than 4,000 who packed the SCERA venue to the bursting point!

Needless to say, David performed for a FULL HOUSE!  I’m loving all of these SOLD OUT concerts – feels like old times!

Bri Ray – Hooray!

Opening for David has got to be a bit daunting – but for the second night in a row, Bri Ray captivated the audience with her beautiful voice, including a haunting duet with David on Don’t Give Up.  I hope Bri gets to open for David in Tuacahn – I’d love to see her live!

The Man On FIYAH!

David began his Orem show with an intimate VIP for approximately 13 lucky fans! There were 50 VIP tix available – not sure where the other 37 fans were – but I sure wish I was one of them! In front of 4,000 people David sets the stage on fire – running from side to side, moving and grooving and even jumping on the drum stand to belt out PANDA.

But in a small room surrounded by his band, opening artist Bri, road manager extraordinaire Kari, and the Lucky 13 – the VIP experience is decidedly low key and cozy – like you’re sitting in his living room watching an impromptu acoustic jam session. It feels unrehearsed, spontaneous and utterly perfect.

Q&A – Orem VIP 06/20/16 (credit: ShelleyFOD)

This Q & A is pure GOLD!  In a small group, David is relaxed and we get some INTERESTING information from Kari!  What we learned:

During Idol and even moreso now, he needs quiet time for himself – it takes a lot to be always “On” and you can go crazy worrying about what everyone thinks of you – trying to impress everybody and look great and fabulous (somehow I don’t think looking fabulous is too hard for him lol)

Five Goals he’s working on:
1. Working on the album – or grouplets of EPs
2. Christmas Tour with Nathan Pacheco
3. Shooting a Music Video :-)
4. Working on a Spanish Album
5. Getting a good nights’ sleep before heading to AZ

The JUICY NEWS from Kari:

When asked if the Christmas Tour will be national, Kari replied… Yes – more outside Utah, we can say that… someone else asked “how far outside?” Get ready folks….

1. California (EEEEEEP!)
2. Nashville – maybe
3. East Coast – Middle and over (?)
4. Indianapolis – maybe

They’re working on it now! It will be more than Utah, Arizona and Idaho… for the other fans…

Gear up Archies because David may be coming to a city near you! You’ve saved all those pennies – some of you for 4 years! – get ready to crack open those piggy banks and exercise your ticket buying fingers because it’s going to be a RACE for front row seats – and hopefully VIPs! :-)

Vids and More!

There is a massive amount of concert footage, pics and Periscopes out there, and more will be added tomorrow as fans upload their treasures in the morning!  So I’m going to post a playlist of vids that have been posted so far, and a few snippets from Instagram and Periscope.

The snippets don’t have song titles attached – I’m new at embedding vids from IG and Twitter, so consider it a treasure hunt and just click on each pic and see what song you get!

Kaitlyn Shares Her Sandy VIP Experience

Kaitlyn has been trying, in vain, to meet David at various shows or book signings, and her luck finally changed for the better when she got a VIP ticket to Sandy!  She shares her experience of what it was like meeting David for the first time. We can relate to your story – congrats on finally getting to meet David in person – check that off your bucket list!

Ever since I saw David audition for American Idol, I knew he was going to be my favorite singer. His voice and demeanor made me a fan from the get go.

I watched American Idol every week, voted until my fingers were numb from punching in the numbers, and became a fan girl that wouldn’t shut up about how an amazing singer he was. That summer, my family traveled to Baltimore for the American Idol tour. After the concert, we were lined up outside and he signed Autographs. I never got the chance to say “hi”. I just handed him the picture to sign.

In March 2009, I was able to attend one of his concerts in Pennsylvania and loved every minute of it but still not being able to personally meet him. When I served my mission for the LDS church in Boise, I heard he was going to be at Deseret Book to sign CDs. I tried very diligently to be able to go but because of mission rules, it couldn’t happen.

Fast forward to this year. I made it a goal this summer that I was going to accomplish items on my bucket list. Meeting David was one of those items. I have tried finding VIP tickets in Boise and Rexburg with no such luck. Last week I received a notification that the show in Sandy on the 18th was a VIP. I was able to get a ticket to the show and also get the VIP.

Saturday rolled around and I was ecstatic beyond words. I couldn’t wait to meet one of my favorite singers. As I stood in line, my heart started pounding out of my chest and I desperately tried to come up with words to say to him. As I approached him, I got even more excited (don’t worry, I contained myself). I know I rambled and probably said some things that didn’t even make sense but just the experience itself was a memory for a lifetime.

If I could have that moment back, I would tell David how much of an amazing singer he but also an even greater person. The Spirit he brings into his shows is enough to keep anyone in tune. The messages he shares to the audience (especially before he sings “Beautiful” or “My Kind of Perfect”) is enough to make any girls heart melt knowing that there still are guys out there like that.

I will always remember Saturday evening as being one of the best days ever. We all know David is an amazing singer but he is an even greater person.*

Maddy Shares Her Orem SCERA Experience

Maddy attended the Orem SCERA show and from the wonderful pics and vids posted on her Facebook page, it looks like she had a fabulous time!

I got to see David Perform in Orem tonight! He is seriously the most spiritual, most humble, talented guy I have met! I hope next time I see him in concert it’ll be the time I get to meet him! He talked about girls having this light and knowing who they are and I personally have see that light in him! Amazing night, perfect entertainment, and great company!!

New Music on the Way!

In addition to David saying that he’s working on releasing an album or grouplets of EPs with different themes, when he sang Numb, he said that he would be releasing the song SOON!  No idea when soon is, but we heard it from the Man himself!

We have decided not to post vids of Numb as David has not officially released the song yet – but it sounds like we’ll be getting an official recording soon, and if we’re lucky, maybe even a music video!

Bananas, lemons and chips! I spy some sandals on David – are those the sandals that someone asked for on IG and he said no because his mom gave them to him?
