Sleepless in Seattle…

David and company left it all on the stage AGAIN in Seattle! The crowds went wild for the set and David was in amazing voice, despite his intense Spokane concert last night where he brought the house down!

Still Losing Sleep

The Orion Tour continued spreading love and amazingness across the PacNW and will be heading to Pocatello ID and Layton UT later this week! The tempo of this tour mirrors the tempo of David’s concerts – it started out on a slow, even pace, then keeps building and gaining momentum with each mile that passes under the wheels of the black ArchuBus as it carries David, Kari, the ArchuBand and the ArchuCrew across the states to meet throngs of excited fans waiting to hear the Orion EP brought to life ~ to sing, dance and groove the night away because last night, fans were truly sleepless in Seattle!

A set list hasn’t surfaced yet and many fans who took vids may be uploading them tomorrow – so stay tuned!

The Triple Door was basically SOLD OUT but for a few Standing Room Only tickets – and we heard through the grapevine that even those sold out before the concert started!

VIP was a little different at this show – instead of the Q&A session, fans enjoyed an additional soundcheck song! David sang He Lives in You, Invincible and Fast Car.

VIP Pics are always awesome!

Mr. Coolchuleta showed up wearing shorts and his hat on backwards to pose for some very memorable VIP pics! He sure loves that Obey cap! And that little tuft of hair peeking through! 🙂

The Man & His Music

Did I mention that the show is getting better and better? Like fine wine as it ages? Here’s a roundup of clips and snippets (and maybe a vid or two) for you to enjoy! Get thee to a concert forthwith!!

Slaying It In Spokane!

David and the Archuband owned the stage again last night at the Bing Theater in Spokane, WA. Continuing their PacNW leg of the tour, David and company enjoyed two days off as they traveled from Portland to Spokane.

David and company were a few minutes late, but there’s a lot of traffic, and we understand they have to find parking for that huge bus!

The fans were thrilled by David’s energy on stage and he delivered to the crowd, who like Portland, were small but mighty in their support of David’s music (and dancing – or movement as he likes to say).

Here’s some clips from social media – not many vids – just short clips for now, so maybe tomorrow people will upload their vids!

First up is a clip from PANDA – thanks Shelley!

2bemeagain2005’s My Little Prayer:

David explained how he wrote My Little Prayer, and Seek Know did a wonderful spoken word video with amazing drawings, inspired by David’s explanation of how the song came to him in a dream:

An a capella group, Gntlmnofficial did a cool cover of Up All Night! It’s a very different style, but lovely just the same!

thnx @davidarchie / the feelz #upallnight 🙏🏻

Portland Beautiful/Scars To Your Beautiful (credit: 8thRowCenter)

Most fans are familiar with Beautiful as David has sung it at many concerts, however this new mash-up with Alessia Cara’s Scars to Your Beautiful is simply sublime. And note to future concert goers – David will expect you to sing along! Especially the bridge echo-back portion, so I’ll post it here and y’all can practice!

Scars to Your Beautiful ~ Alessia Cara

She just wants to be beautiful
She goes unnoticed, she knows no limits
She craves attention, she praises an image
She prays to be sculpted by the sculptor
Oh, she don’t see the light that’s shining
Deeper than the eyes can find it
Maybe we have made her blind
So she tries to cover up her pain and cut her woes away
‘Cause cover girls don’t cry after their face is made

But there’s a hope that’s waiting for you in the dark
You should know you’re beautiful just the way you are
And you don’t have to change a thing, the world could change its heart
No scars to your beautiful, we’re stars and we’re beautiful
Oh-oh, oh-oh
And you don’t have to change a thing, the world could change its heart
No scars to your beautiful, we’re stars and we’re beautiful

She has dreams to be an envy, so she’s starving
You know, covergirls eat nothing
She says beauty is pain and there’s beauty in everything
What’s a little bit of hunger?
I could go a little while longer, she fades away
She don’t see her perfect, she don’t understand she’s worth it
Or that beauty goes deeper than the surface
Oh, oh
So to all the girls that’s hurting
Let me be your mirror, help you see a little bit clearer
The light that shines within

There’s a hope that’s waiting for you in the dark
You should know you’re beautiful just the way you are
And you don’t have to change a thing, the world could change its heart
No scars to your beautiful, we’re stars and we’re beautiful

Oh-oh, oh-oh
And you don’t have to change a thing, the world could change its heart
No scars to your beautiful, we’re stars and we’re beautiful

Bridge:

No better you than the you that you are (no better you than the you that you are)
No better life than the life we’re living (no better life than the life we’re living)
No better time for your shine, you’re a star (no better time for your shine, you’re a star)
Oh, you’re beautiful, oh, you’re beautiful

And there’s a hope that’s waiting for you in the dark
You should know you’re beautiful just the way you are
And you don’t have to change a thing, the world could change its heart
No scars to your beautiful, we’re stars and we’re beautiful
Oh-oh, oh-oh
And you don’t have to change a thing, the world could change its heart
No scars to your beautiful, we’re stars and we’re beautiful

Another concert tip:

At the end of the shows, David has been running the length of the stage high-fiving or shaking hands with everyone up against the stage – so, if you can get to the floor level after the last notes of Glorious fade away, and the band is playing off with Up All Night, you might get David to touch your hand!
