Ticket prices are slightly higher than for Tuacahn, but still VERY AFFORDABLE!  The General Admission option at $29 to sit on the grassy area behind the seats sounds like the makings of an ARCHUPARTY!

Questions were buzzing about the concert sponsor “Lifetime” – who are they? What do they do? A quick search of Wikipedia found this:

Folding tables and chairs, and kayaks and paddleboards – sounds like some fun stuff!  Thank you Lifetime for sponsoring David’s Layton concert!

New Photo Shoot Please!

While we LOVE David’s photos from the TOSOD photo shoot – maybe a refresh is in order?  David’s new haircut and more mature look would be great to see in all the new and UPCOMING concert BUZZ!  Matt Clayton are you reading this??

Just a few pics of David’s new look:

New Concert In Layton Utah!

No sooner had the SOLD OUT sign gone up at the Tuacahn Amphitheater site when David sent a tweet announcing another concert in Utah!

A second concert at an open-air amphitheater – I’m sensing a pattern here! I went to the Del Mar concert which was held at an outdoor Amphitheater, and there’s just something magical about sitting under the stars listening to David’s voice fill the venue and rise to the heavens.

David’s voice always seems in great shape when he’s singing outdoors – he’s said that the humidity is good for his throat – so with two outdoor venues scheduled so far, it looks like Archies are in for a treat!

Tickets go on sale April 28th – so there’s a little more time to plan and prepare for the ticket-buying FRENZY!  If it’s anything like Tuacahn, tix could sell out in a day or less!

Kenley features 542 permanent seats and a large grassy area for general admission that increases the total seating capacity to about 1,850.  That’s a lot of room for Archies to party under the stars!

This concert is scheduled for September 19th – about a month and half earlier than the Tuacahn concert – and according to Kari, there are more concerts to come!  Archies everywhere are doing a happy dance and Fandimonium has officially begun!  Although Kari said there is no formal Tour planned, there are individual concerts planned for the latter quarter of the year.  Anyone ready for a Christmas concert??

David loves his pies!  He was spotted at The Ugly Pie in Gallatin, TN where he graciously posed for a pic – and he sang a little!  The menu has sandwiches and other yummy food options in addition to a wide array of delectible desserts, including pies!

Buying tickets for a David concert is always a nerve-wracking, stress-inducing and exciting process!  Fans practice logging in, seeing how fast they can connect to the site – credit cards are at the ready and your pulse starts racing as the countdown begins – twitter is like a countdown clock with fans tweeting: 1 more hour!  30 minutes!  10 minutes!  Then the heart-stopping tweet:  David’s name disappeared from the site AAGGHHH!  His name is back up 5 minutes to go!  

Ticket Buying Anxiety!!

Ticket Buying Anxiety!!

Your heart is beating so fast and every nerve in your body is stretched to the limit… then it’s GO TIME!!!  Your fingers are flying and you’re madly clicking in your seat selections – WHAT?? THE SEATS DISAPPEARED! You try again and you feel like everything is moving in slow motion… WHERE IS THE CONTINUE BUTTON??  You keep on clicking and finally you are rewarded with the Holy Grail!

Newbies In The House!

There is really nothing like your very first David concert! No matter how many times you’ve watched concert You Tube vids or TV performances or how many times you’ve hit repeat on your iPod, you are never quite prepared for seeing and hearing David LIVE in concert.  When David has free rein to take his music wherever his heart leads, and he has the freedom to add runs or change up the melody, the result is pure magic!

Hard Rock Cafe

David OWNS the stage when he is performing – whether he’s engaging the audience in random banter, encouraging audience participation or simply letting his amazing voice soar to the heavens – you will find yourself lost in the experience, hoping that it will never end.

Another great thing about a live David concert is that you get to meet so many other Archies!  People just like you – where your ODD is not only understood, it’s considered normal!  There’s nothing better than listening to David sing live while you are surrounded by ArchuBuddies dancing and singing along with you – it’s a huge ARCHUPARTY!

Can’t get there…Will there Be More???”

While being happy to see a show on David’s Tour/Events page, fans also wondered if there’d be more shows coming. Kari tweeted reassurance  of sorts about great things coming for the fans on Monday night, and David’s management team, Orrigami Entertainment (Gina Orr) responded to Linda’s question on fb! Her words had me saying Yessssssss!!!!

Remembering David’s 2014 return

Words We Waited for Welcome  home  David's message cap 1

Yesterday marked the one year anniversary of “Elder Arcuhleta’s”  return from his 2 year mission in Chile. Archu-land completely erupted that day filling comments, posts, and timelines, with joyful exclamations and tears echoing those (now famous) words~ “I’m home! I’m home!”

If you’d like to relive the highlights of that day (1 yr already??? Where did that time go???) CLICK HERE to head back in time to Mary Lou’s heartwarming FOD homecoming post! She included a piece of wonderful wisdom re: David in her welcome back message that seems so fitting (for all of us) as we look back and reflect on the past year~

“We don’t always step through life in a straight line, but every step away from that direct path is sure to have a reason, provide us a lesson, and an opportunity for growth.”
