DA Tractor

Tractor Tix

DA Hide an seek

These pics popped up while I was at work, and turned an otherwise hum drum Friday into a fun online adventure! David offered 2 free concert tix to the first person who could find him – he was sitting on a tractor in Somewhere-Only-He- Knows, Idaho Falls – and that dimpled smile was an open invitation for Archies to prove we’re truly the Go-Getters he can count on to rise to any challenge!

And they were off!

Then this was posted:

DA Tix found

Followed shortly by this:

shelley found DA

Lisa DA

Our ArchuBuddies Shelley and Lisa were just behind Emma and her mom, so they didn’t get the tix, but they did get pics with David – and some might say that’s even better!

Moral of the story:

Screen Shot 2015-09-18 at 9.57.10 PM

For someone who professes to be “boring”, David surely provided the most fun I’ve had at work in a LONG time!  What a clever idea to hang out in some random place with free concert tix to your sold out concert, then tweet your fans and wait for them to come running to find you! It’s like the Davis Arts Council ticket give-away for Layton, where they’re hiding a pair of tix every day and tweeting clues where to find them – it’s so much fun being an Archie!

The ArchuMobile 

Batman may have his Batmobile, but Shelley has something even better – The ArchuMobile!  Decorated to the max with all things supportive of David – how fun to be driving down the highway, David music blasting on the stereo, and all the passersby seeing you in this sweet ride!




Why you get lovely notes of appreciation!

Then you get the ultimate fan dream: Notice Me

I’m sure David was impressed and flattered that Shelley’s ArchuMobile was a rolling billboard for him that came all the way from Colorado!

Idaho Falls Night #2 

I think most fans who tuned in last night to view all of the wonderful Periscope vids and join the excited twitter convo as David performed in his first solo concert in 4 years – expected more of the same tonight! Anticipation was high wondering if he would change up the set list – maybe add a new song – or give us a little more insight into what he was going through after his mission.

This is what we got instead:

Shelley no vids

gwen boo security

Screen Shot 2015-09-18 at 10.45.06 PM

Alas, it was not meant to be – as lenient as security seemed to be the first night, the Friday security detail made up for it in spades! Fans were tweeting that security was watching everyone closely and tapping people on the shoulder if they thought someone was recording. There was even an announcement before the concert that even photos would not be allowed! There was a comparison to the security at Beaver Creek – that this was worse! 🙁

So no Periscope streaming and probably very few vids and pics will be posted from Friday’s show, but the upside is that the fans got to immerse themselves in the show and really enjoy themselves without having to focus on recording or taking pics.

Shelley posted 2 ninja vids she recorded at Friday’s show:

Numb Idaho Falls 09/18/15 (credit: ShelleyFOD)

Pride (cover) – Idaho Falls 09/18/15 (credit: ShelleyFOD)

Still hunting for YT vids of the following songs:

Something ‘Bout Love
Touch My Hand
Crush (Periscope posted)
Nunca Pense (Periscope posted)
Glorious (Periscope posted)

Let us know if you find any of these on YT!

Shelley also posted these great pics!

After The Show

Fans did tweet that the show was fantastic and that it exceeded their expectations in almost every way!



And no show would be complete without a marriage proposal!


Fans traveled from all over the world to see David perform live, including Gregorie John Ranin who came all the way from Abu Dhabi and Keiko who came back to see David in Idaho Falls from Japan!

Keiko shared a snippet of Nunca Pense on her FB:

David Archuleta Trending Party

Despite a great effort from Go Getter Archies, we weren’t able to get a WWTT this time around.  However, lots of people on Twitter saw David’s name associated with a lot of great graphics and wonderful sentiments about his music!  Thank you to everyone who participated and to those who helped to coordinate the trend.  Thanks to Pocoelsy for the awesome graphic!

  6. Anne-Marie says:

    Good morning folks!
    Looking forward to hearing about last night’s show! Wondering if David sang anything different from the night before or if it was the same set list. Have to say again how much I enjoyed what Lisa shared with us on Periscope and a HUGE thank you to all the wonderful fans who shared their videos for those of us in other parts of the country/world who were unable to go. 🙂 It’s so wonderful to hear David singing again but just as wonderful to hear his ramblings and what he has to say/share with us between the songs too! Missed that! 🙂

  7. kimk says:

    good morning folks seems they were very strict last night thank goodness for last nights pics and vids!! 🙂

    convo from yesterday.. guess I don’t mind David changing things up growing would think most artists question at times when things are not working about moving on to other things.

    now where love songs are concerned has David ever been in love to even write about his experiences.. he did sing love songs at the show.

    thing about falling in love it just hits you can’t stop it WHAP!
    hope he gets to experience that one day poor thing might enjoy it. 😀

    Morning folks! 😀

    Thanks Kalei for the Saturday post!

    Love the pic of David sitting on the tractor. 😀

    Fell asleep early last night. I was exhausted! I figured the venue would be more strict on the second night. Grateful we have the first night of videos! Maybe Layton will be better.

    • Anne-Marie says:

      Morning Maureen! I went to bed early too but kept checking to see if anything popped up. lol. Hoping they won’t be as strict tonight.

  12. kimk says:

    guess not too worried about things kind of like he doesn’t want to go the Justin Bieber Austin Mahone route.. Twenty One Pilots kids love them from what I was told mormon kids do too doesn’t surprise me cause they don’t curse write about sex and such for the most part. they just go at it hard and unique speak to kids issues whats going on in their heads even about the music biz. very unique not something that I would think older fans would like but then again David is just 24.
    anyway they don’t usually write music about love either no mushy love songs ha but then again there is nothing mushy about them.

    twenty one pilots: Stressed Out [OFFICIAL VIDEO]

  13. kimk says:

    recently I followed Nathan Sykes he is supposed to be the next JT.. did it cause Kari followed him on IG anyway just unfollowed him as he RT’d something about a body part of his pretty lame.

    impression I get from David is that he wants to contribute to the world in a meaningful way no shallow Hal for him ha kind of why we all are still here if you think about it.

    happy to see we got some things from last night wonder what Layton will be like isn’t that where his family lives?? 🙂

    Janel are you going tonight??

    • Janel aka Nellie says:

      Yes, I am. Leaving in an hour and a half. Enterprise rental is picking Alyssa and I up. Going first to spend an hour or two with my mom then I’ll head the rest of the way to Layton. Hadn’t heard of any fan dinners or if there are any, I haven’t been invited to them. That’s OK, like spending time just with Alyssa.

  14. kimk says:

    lol David saw Shelly’s car!!! 😆

    • Anne-Marie says:

      Ha ha..and dang, he couldn’t say anything because he was on voice rest!

      • kimk says:

        ha I know but still funny.. Shelly rocks!
        he has two more shows then off for two weeks must be hard going at it all at once good to take it easy.

        • Anne-Marie says:

          Yes and that’s 3 shows in a row so must be very hard on his voice.
          I would have loved to have seen the expression on his face when he saw Shelly’s car! lol. She does rock!

  15. kimk says:

    Shelly said he couldn’t talk.. maybe he is being smart and is on vocal rest?

    @KaleiLuvsHawaii @erlindita @DavidFTFOD @GwenPo but it’s ok. Crowd was amazing. Davis was so relaxed. Heard some new bits in songs.

    lol seems Idaho was like the VABeach venue folks who worked there were pretty darn cranky!!

  19. cq says:

    Still enjoying all the videos. It’s kind of becoming clearer the path he will go. I wish him lots of luck.

  20. VaBeachArchie says:

    Good morning guys! Have a SUPER Saturday!

    Thanks Kalei for the #hideandseek Saturday post! FUN lead off pic! FAB IDEA for the ticket give aways…. ESPECIALLY getting to meet David and the pictures opp! THANKS AGAIN to ALL that have shared pics, vids and tweets from these Idaho Falls shows! UNFORGETTABLE! 🙂

    Another evening, another show! Hope to get a few ARCHUGOODIES from tonight’s show! Is there a youtube vid of the whole Tarzan medley! Nancy had it on Periscope but now it’s gone?! LOVED IT!

  21. kimk says:

    cq kind of thinking singer/motivational singer.. might be geared more for the lds crowd not sure yet but if you think about it little fish in a big pond or a big fish in a little pond where David is now? is not bad for him they love him.. that makes me happy was not before seeing sales as they were in the beginning in Idaho.
    I am fine about it lol only thing I would say to him is to not knock love until you tried it.

    • cq says:

      Yes, Kim I tend to agree with you a kind of singer/motivational singer. He will have his audience that yes, might be more lds, but I’m glad he didn’t give up a music career no matter what type it will be. I’m very happy that we will be getting his new album soon and am hoping it has songs that I truly will enjoy.

      • VaBeachArchie says:

        David is doing his thing! Made it pretty clear that he’s singing and writing music that he wants to, not what is necessarily the flavor of the month or what others think he should! Think his music is geared to anyone that’s willing to listen and ENJOY that INCREDIBLE VOICE…and yes appreciate the lyrics! LOVE NUMB! 🙂 🙂

  22. kimk says:

    Kalei again thank you wow sorry I posted things you had already you rock FOD rocks!!

  23. Anonymouse says:

    ‘Numb’ must be really catchy because parts of it are stuck in my head, want the studio version! Hoping its minimally produced if that makes sense! Like hearing it sound close
    to live version.

  24. IMO says:

    I hope david does the video Numb song, I think it would be a good video? If he does make the video, he prolly shot at LA or nashville?

  25. sydnie says:

    K we’re all packed & ready to go! :D: Bf can’t make it so just myself and 2 nieces – one of them has never been to SLC so we’ll be visiting the history museum
    ,temple etc. I swear that girl is an ODD planner lol!
    Tomorrow we’ll visit Park City & dine at Apex in Montage Resort up in Deer Valley – it’s not ski season yet but dang that place is fab to the max. I slept well & sorta refreshed haha, I can do this! 😀
    Nothing beats the anticipation of seeing David after 4 long years gah, still remember the hot mess I was after that mish announcement but water under the bridge he made the right decision for sure!
    Bye guys, will tweet pics if the they let us! 😀

  26. sydnie says:

    Thank you very much Kalei and Joanie for these wonderful posts and keeping us updated! Ily FOD staff!

  27. kimk says:

    yes I hope Numb is David’s next single, he releases it to buy and we get a music video!! 🙂

    Liz-Mag ‏@liz_mag3 2h2 hours ago
    @THECanadaArchie The first night mostly adults. 2nd night there were quite a few younger people like young teens and kids.

  33. GrammyJ says:

    One of the comment from a fan that went to David’s concert last night that was posted at “The Voice” stated that the crowd last night was extremely rowdy in a good way and David commented that they were very energetic. She said the guitarist looked like he had never been involved in such a love fest – his expression was what just happened! I was so glad to hear about the love for David shown by the fans. He knows for sure now that he still has lots of fans that love him.

  34. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    I just have to weigh in the conversation about David being a motivational singer…..that is very different from just an LDS singer….I think David proved in these concerts that he can sing pop, motivational music or songs with messages as he used to say and still be LDS…..He is as he says…..Just David…..and that works for me……Love it that he saw Shelly’s car…..He is smart to be on vocal rest……more shows coming up……Miss Vicki

    • kimk says:

      don’t see him as a lds singer that would be mostly religious music no? except to say that his audience seems to be heavy lds if that makes any sense plus these are just warmup concerts. David knows full well where he is and who is there.

  35. kimk says:

    like Midland TX.. if had to guess might be heavy Spanish peeps? so hope he sings a lot in Spanish lol and we get a ton of videos! 🙂

    THIS!!!! 😀

    need to see David in concert 🙁

    rhiminee ‏@rhiminee 28m28 minutes ago
    This is just a small part but such a looooovely part of David’s Tarzan soundtrack medley he sang at the other night https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=knggabGQi5c

    • Bydesign says:

      Actually, Kim, the Latino population in Midland is about 25%, so that’s not the reason for booking that venue. Even though I’m from Texas, I am stumped as to why they would pick that location. It is in the middle of nowhere – 4 or 5 hours from Dallas, 5+ hours from Austin, 7 hours from Houston. If they wanted more Latinos, San Antonio or even Austin would be better. Although Midland is rated #2 as one of the best cities for LDS families to settle. Among the religious population, the LDS faith is about 1%. I know several people that have bought tickets for it but it is going to be a trek getting there…there is no easy way to travel to Midland.

    • GrammyJ says:

      Yes, it’s going to be hard for David to sell out Midland. I think it’s a 2000 seat theater. He will probably need to book smaller theaters (500 to 1000 seats) in areas that don’t have a large LDS population.

    David Archuleta Performs for the First Time in Almost Four Years – J http://www.snsanalytics.com/zxtly9

    It’s hard to believe, but David Archuleta hasn’t performed in a long time and he just changed the game by performing for the first time in almost four years. The singer recorded a video from Idaho Falls, writing that he had “nerves and excitement” for his show.

  42. kmb says:

    Just listened to Numb for the first time and read the lyrics. Wow, what an AMAZING, REAL song. This just feels super honest and he speaks straight from his heart. David is no longer a “star” but a real person with real emotions. What has changed is that he is so much more willing to share these things with us in a way that makes it seem like we’re there with him. He’s an even better storyteller now than before his mission. FOR ME PERSONALLY, this sharing of his real thoughts and emotions makes him even more down-to-earth than he already was (I didn’t think that was possible, but it happened haha).

    I love these lines in the chorus: “It hurts to live so wide awake, oh / But it’s a chance I can take.” What I took from it, as far as David, is that David is ready for stuff now. As far as me personally, those lines mean that I should “live so wide awake” and not be scared of what life has to offer. Because I don’t want to feel numb either. The best scenario is that none of us should want to feel numb. I love it when songs make me think, and this is definitely one of them.

    An unrelated thought: I’m sad that Periscope only keeps videos for 24 hours. Did anybody happen to save them somehow so they can be uploaded to YouTube later??? Did Abbra make mp3s? Specifically, what did David say about Nunca Pense? Did he offer a rough translation? Not that he would – just curious.

  43. kmb says:

    Off to listen to Pride now. Been waiting for this this since we found out he did it at TOFW Auckland!!! 🙂

    HELP!!! Does anyone have a ticket for tonights concert? I screwed up royally. My friend flew in from CA just to go. I already had one ticket so I ordered another one. But, I just looked at my tickets and I ordered a Monday ticket instead. So I NEED one ticket for TONIGHT and have one for Monday to trade or sale. I beg MERCY!!! (they will not exchange at the box office). Message me ASAP if you can help

  45. kmb says:

    Okay, Pride was good, but I was FLOORED by Don’t Give Up!!!!! It was never one of my favorites on BEGIN. (as much as any David Archuleta song can be my least favorite lol). But the live version with Gracie = WOW WOW WOW WOW!!!!! I think Gracie brings more emotion to it than Libby Linton. Is it just me??? An angelic voice answered by an even more angelic voice – what more could you ask for? Bravo, David and Gracie!!! 😀 LOVED IT!!!!!

    @DavidArchie my sister just told me that you baptized her and her friend Taylor at the bountiful temple! That’s the best concert prep ever.

  51. IMO says:

    That was very sweet of david to help the couple to get marry??? David will be next for sure, I am sure he got marry fever.

  52. IMO says:

    Speaking about marriage , I am sure all Mormons do right??

  53. kimk says:

    oh yeah I know he did it on his mission.. just thought next step up was getting married becoming a bishop. guess just a thing they do lol the ladies didn’t seem to mind!

    • CJ says:

      No I meant he did BEFORE his mission. According to called to serve, in between concerts he’d visit churches and the guy on the video said he’d do baptisms.

  54. Anne-Marie says:

    So I guess I’m a little confused. Wouldn’t this girl have been baptized by the missionaries who taught her and currently on a mission? Maybe Janel can answer that.

    • CJ says:

      Not sure as I’m not mormon but I don’t think everyone who gets baptized has necessarily been taught by missionaries. Maybe an LDS person can illuminate us.

    • Janel aka Nellie says:

      You do have to be taught by the missionaries, but you can choose any male with proper Priesthood authority baptize you. With 8 year old kids, they don’t need missionaries unless they’re being baptized with the rest of their family, being converted at the same time.

      • Janel aka Nellie says:

        *to baptize you.

      • CJ says:

        Ah. Thanks Janel.

      • CJ says:

        Makes me curious then how David did baptisms during concerts. Did the people getting baptized see David at church and say “Hey, I want David to baptize me”?

        • Anne-Marie says:

          That’s why I asked if he gets a ton of requests. Lol. You would think a lot of people would be requesting David!

        • Janel aka Nellie says:

          Baptisms in the temple are vicarious baptisms for the dead, not for themselves. The temple baptism fonts are not used for when someone gets baptized for the first time. Most of the time when someone gets baptized for themselves its at an LDS stake center or building where there’s a font. Or in a pond, pool, lake etc. Where a font is not available. Males with proper Priesthood authority can do baptisms by proxy in the temple. Usually temple workers but doesn’t have to be. Sorry if confusing.

        • Janel aka Nellie says:

          He most likely was at the temple either with a visiting ward or his mom’s ward, or who knows. Hard to say.

      • CJ says:

        Curious also, if you are born in a mormon family do you get taught by missionaries? Do you get baptized only if you are a convert?

        • Anne-Marie says:

          I’ve wondered that myself. In my church babies are christened/baptized any where from 3 mos to up to a year. They also receive their 1st communion and confirmation at their christening.

        • kmb says:

          The decision about whether to be baptized is one each individual makes for themselves. Children become eligible for baptism when they turn 8 years old. I was baptized on my actual birthday when I turned 8. No, if you’re born into a Mormon family, you don’t need to be “taught by the missionaries” because you learn the doctrine and beliefs from your parents and Sunday School teachers and other members of the faith. However, when you feed the missionaries, they will share a gospel message with you. Occasionally they are asked to share a specific message with congregation members. So there are times when the missionaries come to members’ homes and share a gospel message, but obviously don’t have to say all that they might say to a non-member/investigator.

          Hope all that made sense. 😉

      • Anne-Marie says:

        Thank you for clarifying Janel. Wow, I wonder if David gets a lot of requests?!

  102. CJ says:

    My heart is breaking for him. He had to stop. Went back stage!

  103. Spirit says:

    So sorry to hear that David is having a difficult time with his voice tonight. I remember that he talked about that subject in the interview with Ted Capener before his MKOC concert in Utah. David was asked if his voice ever gave out on tour and he said that it often did on the second or third day of the tour. He said that it was usually from all the practice plus the tendency to oversing during the first show. This would probably be even more of a problem since it has been so long since he has sung so many songs for several days in a row. In the past, David has been able to adjust songs when he’s having difficulty. Sure hope he’s able to do this tonight.

  104. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    OMG….the flu….he needs to go home NOW……there will be other concerts….He needs to take care of himself……Coming back for a another free concerts sounds like a winner to me…..Miss Vicki

  110. CJ says:

    He needs to protect that precious vocal cord!

  111. IMO says:

    Oh no! David had a flu, it seems like it was quick concert show because he had a flu. He was nice eoungh to sing for his hometown fans, he cannot let them down! I hope he get well soon. Goodnight folks

  112. Shanny in Australia says:

    Well that person who said he’s coming back at Christmas and they’re getting a half price ticket – they seem pleased at the prospect, not upset. So that’s a good thing. How many songs did he get through before he had to stop I wonder?

  113. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    David must feel really bad about this…..He is always praying for others ….it is our time to send prayers and well wishes to David to let him know it is OK and he is still loved big time…….Miss Vicki

  114. Shanny in Australia says:

    CJ, Janel – what has been the audiences reaction to the situation? Are they accepting it good naturedly?

  115. Spirit says:

    Poor David! Sending prayers and healing thoughts his way!

  116. IMO says:

    I guess david might cancel show on Monday??

    • Shanny in Australia says:

      Well he’s got Sunday and most of Monday to get his voice back. I tend to think it’s more a case of vocal strain than anything considering he’s been out and about today. Flu, is probably an easier way to say his body needs a break and he needs to rest.

      • IMO says:

        Flu doesn’t get better overnight. I think he will ended up cancel or postponed on later date. I think his voice rest and him trying to better is Is important than over a concert.

  117. - says:

    i wonder why church stuffs got to be done while he is on tour u know david will never says no but come on people give him a break.

    • Shanny in Australia says:

      It must have been something he chose to do. It’s not like something you get asked to do, as in, sing at someone’s wedding. It’s more akin to going to church and being asked to offer the prayer once you’re there.
      My husband says temple baptisms are quite draining on the voice because you do so much talking. If David has never done them in the temple before he may not have realised that when he volunteered to perform them. It’s quite an honour to be the one to perform the baptisms so he probably didn’t want to stop halfway through and say…hey I better stop and save my voice for tonight. We all live and learn I guess.

  118. CJ says:

    Sounds like he came back out sang BOTW and glorious with help of the crowd.

    • Shanny in Australia says:

      Awww. Sounds like the crowd must be feeling for him just as much as we are!
      Take courage David! People understand! ❤️

      • Shanny in Australia says:

        Wow, can you imagine….he’s unwell and struggling ….and then he comes out and sings ‘like a bridge over troubled water, I will lay me down’. Singing about sacrificing for another while he’s struggling to sing a little more for them. Oh my goodness, that must have been so moving.

      • CJ says:

        During glorious many stood with the lights from their cell phones glowing as they sung along.

        • Shanny in Australia says:

          Awww that makes me happy! Hope it helps him to feel better about it all too.

          Thanks for bringing all the info! 🙂

  119. CJ says:

    Even more love and respect for him. Praying for a quick recovery. He needs to rest.

  120. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    He is amazing but he needs to take care of himself and go home to bed…..Night all….got to get to bed so I can go to church in the morning……Will be praying for David big time…..Miss Vicki

      She even posted a pic of her and David after the show, poor guy he looked good but tired, she also said he just cut the show a little early, he must of sang a fair amount of songs tho:) I hope he gets some sleep and rest tonite and tomorrow…

    @DavidArchie: Layton, thank you for being supportive and hanging in with me tonight! Meant more than words can say (literally–Haha!)

  124. CJ says:

    Thankfully he has a dr with him now according to Gina Orr.

  125. cq says:

    David trying to do it all…get well soon.

  126. Jani says:

    I’ve never been more proud to be a fan. David was the ultimate professional tonight, trying to give his best….and couldn’t. He still managed charm us all by his hoarse and endearing banter, his heartfelt smile, and his great effort to give us a great show. When he couldn’t sing, the crowd filled in and sang for him, and cheered and applauded after each one. During BOTW hundreds of people were swaying and holding up their cell phone lights, illuminating the night sky. It was an enchanting sight, and feeling of love for David enveloped us all. He ended with Glorious, but it was mostly us that sang, David filling in when he could. It was a disappointing night, as our hearts were aching for him, but there was also an outpouring of love and support, and that was a beautiful thing to see. I couldn’t be more proud of him, or feel more love and respect.
    David, you were a true champion tonight. Prayers for your heart and voice.

    • Jani says:

      p.s. Kari said after the show that they were working so hard to gear up for this first show that they forgot to take care of themselves. She hoarsely said,”we’re all sick.” 🙁 David, sometimes you gotta take care of YOU. (And sometimes these things just happen anyway.) Hoping for a miracle for Monday, but not holding my breath. I really don’t even want him to try to sing if he isn’t completely well. Gotta protect that precious vocal chord. Night all.

  127. Pickles says:

    hey guys just came from the concert and David sounds good even when he is sick! I felt bad for him and I know he was trying his hardest.I got my picture taken with his mom which was cool. Security was strict tonight i only film like 3 songs but maybe for david respect i should not upload them.

  128. Pickles says:

    maybe if the concert would have been inside he would have feel better. The weather was not helping him at all. good thing we know is if he said he is coming back on dec for a christmas concert, this could mean he is doing a christmas tour.

  129. SandyBeaches says:

    It was illness that compromised his vocal chords years ago.

    Is it possible that David or his team requested that videos not be recorded? Would that be something that he would not like for the present time?

    His concerts have been awesome though but looking at his eyes you can see how he is feeling.

  130. Shanny in Australia says:

    Jani and Pickles, I loved your words! Do you think he is actually sick and not just vocal chords wearing out!? Oh I hope he spends the whole day in bed tomorrow and as long as is needed. Same with Kari and whoever else is sick. Maybe he can even go home and get some pampering? I’m glad his mom was there.

    It’s so wonderful that people were so supportive and understanding, I hope David can focus on those aspects of this experience. I know it’s human nature to forget how much people care and understand in situations like this and beat yourself up instead; I hope he truly allows himself to accept the love of others and realise that he’s only human. Get well dear David. Perhaps one day this will be one of those experiences that you look back on, and which becomes yet another story in the weaving of your life experiences and gives you a giggle, in the way that time often affords us when we reflect back on those unexpected, crazy, moments of life. ❤️

    Good morning guys!

    David is such a professional and wanted to give the best show he could, even as sick as he was! My fear was his damaging his voice trying to push through! Happy to hear he’s in the care of a doctor. The support and love shown by the audience and fans around the world must have eased his heart! Wonder if all his talking between songs helped wear out his voice! Prayers for a speedy recovery!

    Seems that Christmas shows might be planned. Hoping if so, there will be some in the East! Guess time will tell!

  144. IMO says:

    Great pics but david didn’t look sick to me, maybe he depressed? Idk. If u get a flu, would u cannot stand up and throwing up, hmm??

    Idk if david was sick or not by looking at the pics but flu idk but flu is bad thing but It Look like he had allgeries , allgeries come around this time of month year too and again Idk what wrong with david last nite but he had the flu, he should have been in bed resting not performing and idk maybe david want to keep something personal don’t to diccess want give the fans real reasons he shorted the concert last nite, I really domt know, just my guesses on it.

  146. IMO says:

    If david does preforming tomm than he doesn’t have a flu, it take a week or so to get better and than he must got allgeries than, again just my guess.

  147. Trudy says:

    Maybe he shouldn’t have spent all that time baptizing dead people before his concert. Maybe someone should have convinced him to get off the stage and not to put his voice under further strain by trying to sing when it was apparent he couldn’t. I don’t see courage or a big heart. I see pride, stubborness, a stunning lack of preparation and concern for his well being. With his vocal history, the professional and common sense thing to do would have been for someone on his management team to have required he rest his voice on the day of a concert, and to postpone until he was well.

      Some things require oracular vision too. Not everything in life can be predicted, ticked off, planned perfectly for. Have you never made a mistake?

      • Trudy says:

        David’s vocal history should have been enough for him or a COMPETENT management team to have precluded him from doing any strenuous speaking, like baptizing by proxy on the day of a full concert. He used to take pains not to tax his voice before concerts, does he think he’s superman now or something? Pride goeth before a fall, right? Last night was a big stumble. Let’s hope some common sense prevails going forward to prevent the fall.

    haha the band members prob think wth is going on last night with supportive fans helping him sing along. prob the 1st time ever for them. anyone got a chance to c their reactions?

  149. kimk says:

    from what I saw they were alive peeps.

    anyway when Shelly saw him the other day (tractor day) I think David was on vocal rest my guess a combo of things happened from what I remember him saying way back speaking hurts your voice more then actually singing.

  150. kimk says:

    just hope he will be ok.. would cry real tears if he lost his voice forever.

    Good morning everyone!
    I went to bed early last night so I missed everything that happened with David. Poor guy! I really hope he spends the day at home and rests both physically and vocally. I’m sure he will, he’s smart and knows how to take care of his voice. You know he hasn’t been performing in such a long time, he probably got out of the habit of taking it easy between shows and resting. If he’s got the flu though, nothing you can do about that except rest fully and take your antibiotics. I think he can be a bit stubborn in that he doesn’t want to disappoint the fans so he tries to plug through. And it’s his first set of shows so of course, he wants to give it his all. 🙂

  152. cq says:

    Being that it’s said on his new OS under his bio that he is scheduled to release an album in 2015, I trust that is happening, so yes, Kim, 🙂 I’m thinking a release before Christmas would be my guess as to when.

  153. kimk says:

    Anne Marie he is a sweetheart!! we should all pray for him!

    • Anne-Marie says:

      He is! I feel for the guy…stinks that he got sick during his first set of shows for his fans. Boo!! But I REALLY hope he stays home all day today and sleeps! lol.

    David Archuleta was perfect last night


    • Shanny in Australia says:

      Well see there you go. No need for us to scrutinise and judge when the people there seem to have walked away from the concert having had a good experience despite the difficulties.

  156. muldur says:

    It’s hard to describe last night. But anyone doubting he was sick based on the pictures posted is just wrong. The flu is not vomiting and diarrhea it’s a respiratory illness. Regardless of his official diagnosis, he was sick. His voice was not 100 percent on Friday. We heard they all woke up with sore throats on Friday,can’t remember who said it. As far as the crowd, I didn’t see people leaving at all. They were so supportive. Lots of respect for him. Remember, these people all bought tickets within 3 hours of them going on sale. That’s how fast that show sold out. So everyone there really wanted to be there.

    It was a very moving and emotional experience to be there.

    • kimk says:

      aww Nancy thanks I hope they all feel better real soon!!! 🙁

    • Shanny in Australia says:

      Thank you. I can imagine there was something of a touching atmosphere there with the audience’s care for David and David’s desire to give all he could despite the difficulties and then later his obvious appreciation for the audience members as they showed such kindness and respect. A mutual affection. His tweet spoke of his great appreciation for their understanding.

      You know, (speaking generally and not specifically to you Muldur 😉 ) this can be turned into a big hash with judgments and negativity flare ups, which will just remind David of all the reasons why he wanted to give up music…..or it can be turned to good, where people show understanding, patience and love, which in turn could remind David of all the reasons why he should continue to stay with music. The choice is ours. We can sow actions but we can only reap the consequences.

      Not saying no-one is allowed to utter a disagreeance or disappointment ever again. But there are times and places……Oh be wise!

    • GrammyJ says:

      Yes, everything I read on twitter from fans that were there was very supportive. I say several tweets that David speaking the words to My Kind of Perfect made them focus more on the words and was very effective. He was the professional to give it his best when sick. It sounds like it was an awesome show even though his voice wasn’t 100%.

      This unfortunately happens to professional singers all the time. They try to sing their best if they can perform at all. Concerts don’t generally get canceled unless the singer can’t sing at all. David thought he could and gave it his best shot. The audience seemed to appreciate it. He has today and most of Monday to rest up. Hopefully he will be better by Monday night.

      It was fun to see pictures of the audience. I love that his crowds include all ages and I read from a fan that his merchandise was selling well. This bodes well for David. I also like that now we know there will be at least one Christmas concert.

    • IMO says:

      It david had a sore throat than he should have no perform at all and that must been uncomfortable for him to sing and that mess up his voice too and I do think his family and people(who work for him) tried to stop him and cancel the show and maybe he chose not too and I guess david kind of a person cannot say no, well if that is the case and david should understand that his health is more important than a concert and I think the fans would have understood and I guess he didn’t want to upset them.

    • CJ says:

      So nice to hear this! 🙂

    • CJ says:

      Thank you Muldur! I love David even more than I thought I could. So happy the crowd showed him so much love and support. I was concerned (to say the least) last night about the reaction but looks like it was not needed. Makes me really happy for David.
