A New Virtual Concert Headed Your Way!!

Fans gathered together to celebrate the music of David’s Christmas tours in our first sponsored Virtual concert this past December, and at the suggestion of Nancy, we’ve decided to do it again! This time we will be celebrating the music of David’s “Live In Concert” tour which brought us David’s music of that glorious little red cd, his debut album, along with additional favorites! It was his first full (post Idol) tour!

Today is a special day to announce this upcoming show because it was on this very day 4 years ago (2/24/2009) in Virginia Beach, that it all began!!! So let’s get ready!

Stay tuned!! In the days ahead, we’ll again be asking you to submit your favorite vids and performances in order to determine the final set list. The concert will be held on March 16th ~Saturday evening EST  (Sun. am overseas). That’s just under 2 weeks before the release of No Matter How Far! It will be a great time to celebrate David’s first tour and cd while preparing for the release of his latest cd! Hope to see all of you there!

 Somebody Out There ~A Sunday Serenade

Like today’s quote, David’s music and messages are sung straight from his soul, and we his fans, can feel them….all around the world. During his first tour, David shared a “message song” that he had co-written. “Somebody Out There” was  introduced in a very personal way at each show by David. He wanted to share what the words meant to him, and how he also hoped it’s message could be used to help others.

From his first tour show in Virginia Beach 4 years ago today, here’s “Somebody Out There.” ~credit Starrynites01 (Monica.)

    Good morning, and hi Anita, I too am excited about the concert and will be watching, can’t wait. I just love the lead pic of David!!!! Where has everyone been these last few days?

  4. Kimberly Ann fan of one smokin hot Honduran!! says:

    potluck hi!

    both Adele and Barbra Streisand perform at the Oscars tonight.. talk about girl power!!

  5. Anita says:

    potluck8-Hi! That lead pic is so beautiful!! I’m working all weekend, and busy with other stuff, so I haven’t had alot of time to comment. Hopefully I’ll be back later this evening.

    I’m so excited that in a few weeks I’ll finally be able to hear one of the songs Lady V co-wrote with David, Heart Falls Out! She said it’s her favorite song she’s ever written with him! EEEEEKKKK!!!

  6. nora says:

    good morning great post today. Has anybody tried to vote on the MYX poll they have changed their format and I can’t find the place to vote for the video Rainbow, it is #10. Has anybody else had that problem?

  7. VaBeachArchie says:

    Good morning FOD!

    FABULOUS post Joanie! The lead off pic from Hanne/Naree is STUNNING….but aren’t they ALL! EXCITED for the virtual concert…..LOVED David’s first solo tour…right in my own backyard to boot! LOVE Somebody Out There….and the vids!

    ENJOY YOUR DAY! 🙂 Off to VOTE!

  8. potluck8 says:

    I will not be watching the Oscars, but glad to know that they will actually have great singing talent on .Is the beav going to be there? He just seems to be EVERYWHERE, gets really boring.

  9. Grannycrush says:

    Nora If you are trying to vote on MYX by clicking on the icon from yesterday’s post, you have to click on “home” on the MYX page to get to the voting page. Yesterday’s post doesn’t take you directly to the right page.

    Is anyone besides me having trouble with Internet Explorer continually knocking you off the Musiqtone poll? This is something new that has been happening to me for the last 3 or 4 days. It is taking me forever to vote on that poll as it stops working after a few votes and then I have to re-enter the site and it will let me vote a few more times.

  10. Virtue says:

    a virtual concert! yahoooo!

  11. nora says:

    Grannycrush-Thanks for the info on MYX, just couldn’t figure it out. I had a lot of trouble with Internet Explorer, especially on you tube, but lots of other problems my Son-in-law changed me to Firefox, no problems since.

  12. Grannycrush says:

    I tried to change to Firefox, but a big red X came up and it said I couldn’t download it. I wish I knew what I was doing. I will have to try to get some help on that. I have a new computer and when it was installed, they put Internet Explorer on it even though I had Firefox before. I like Firefox much better.

  13. jazzy says:

    Grannycrush, maybe you could try to download Google Chrome. That browser works really well for me.

  14. Lessha says:

    Good morning to everyone here at FOD. Just wanted to drop by and thank everyone here who keeps this site going. All the mods for all there hard work and all those who comment everyday. I don’t comment very often but I am here everyday and I sure enjoy hearing what all you guys have to say. David’s fans are the best. I am missing David bad lately, maybe because it is getting so close to the one year mark. Just think next year we’ll be planning for his return. I’m sure he will get a lot of buzz when he returns off his mission. Well have a great day everyone, you’re are truly the best!!!!!!!!

  15. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Utah Fan dinner reminder: Tuesday March 26th at Simply Thai in Sandy, Utah, 6 PM. We have about 20 people signed up to go and about 15 maybes (some are pretty strong maybes). Would love any fan who can make it to come! Last year we had 31 guests. RSVP janel_woodbury at yahoo.com

  16. breanne says:

    Sorry, I don’t know how I posted the above info twice. LOL!!!

    Keep voting hourly for Rainbow on Chart Central. It has been #1 there for 6 weeks! 🙂

  19. Candy says:

    Hi Lessha-Im with you…I hope David and his team capitalize on the buzz his return will generate. Sadly, his leaving caused more of a stir then his being here did. I hope they have something super planned and quickly jump on the buzz bandwagon.

    Kimk-How are you feeling this morning…hopefully not as sore as yesterday.

  20. Candy says:

    WOOT- ANOTHER VIRTUAL CONCERT!!! Davids first cd features some of my favorite songs. A big fan of Desperate, Barriers, You Can, Angels, and Davids baby Crush! I didnt become a fan of Touch My Hand until I heard it live…them HolyMoly…it jumped right up on my fav list!

  21. angelbymyside says:


    #Archies let’s RT @Davidarchie’s “Don’t Run Away” for everyone to hear! http://ow.ly/hZM0f

  22. tami lyn says:

    hi and thanks angel! just RTed that on twitter and saw that only 10 fans have RTed it so far! what?! 🙁 hope that number increases quickly!

  23. lizardj says:

    emailed my local radio station requesting they put Don’t Run Away on their playlist and got this reply! 🙂
    Feb 21 (3 days ago)

    Got it in the new music rotation, currently. Thanks for contacting us!

    Kelly Turner
    Hope they really do! Would love to hear DRA on the radio! Have a great Sunday everyone! Can’t wait for the album now. 🙂

  24. Anne-Marie says:

    Happy Sunday everyone! Looking forward to the virtual concert on March 16th! Will never forget how wonderful that solo tour was! Especially one of the stops was only 15 minutes from my house! I’ll never forget meeting up with fans (Vicki, Pastel) at the restaurant which was right next to the store that our radio station was taking David to dress him for the show! The station had a contest where the lucky winners got to help David shop & pick out his outfit to wear! Then they brought him & the winners over to the restaurant for a luncheon. Me, Vicki & Pastel were in the restaurant waiting for David to come in. He did and when he saw us he waved! Then he went into a private room for the meet & greet luncheon. I remember Pastel asking Ray (D’s tour manager) if there was any possibility if we could meet w/David for a few minutes and he said yes but it would have to be quick! We couldn’t believe it! One of my best David memories!

  25. Anne-Marie says:

    Here is the video that the radio station made of David’s meet and greet luncheon! (The vid shows Pastel and me watching what’s going on in the meet and greet! lol!)

  26. Kimberly Ann fan of one smokin Honduran!! says:

    Candy doing ok!? virtual concert.. oh wonder if a certain someone is giving an outdoor Easter concert this year?

  27. Anne-Marie says:

    Lucky gals that got to go shopping with David!!

  28. Anne-Marie says:

    David ended up choosing the red ansd white plaid Ralph Lauren shirt! Here is a video of his solo tour stop in Buffalo! (I love the fan who shouts out, “You’re GORGEOUS!”

  29. Candy says:

    Anne-Marie-Thanks for the video. As I was watching I was thinking how young he looked there, then it dawned on me…he was young there! How great was that getting to meet with David! Ray may have come across as being rough at times, but he, like Jeff, always did what they could to arrange a special moment for fans!

  30. Candy says:

    Hi Lizard- Good seeing you here. You gave me the incentive to contact my radio station, many moons ago they did play Crush but nothing after that. Maybe it’s time for them to give the more mature David a spin!

  31. Candy says:

    Oh good point about a possible Easter concert. With the country being 75% Catholic, Im sure it is celebrated in Chile. Not that Catholics have a monopoly on Easter. If they do I doubt it would be one outsiders would be invited to like they did with the Christmas Concert.

  32. Anne-Marie says:

    Candy- He was really sweet about it and very gracious! I remember when we were allowed in to see David (after the M&G luncheon was over), David said in his cute voice, “Oh I have to go wash my hands.” He left to go to the restroom and quickly came back to meet with us! I would say we got to spend about 20-3- minutes with him. We had gifts for him and were allowed to give it to him. Jeff was so nice too. Pastel I think, went to talk to Jeff first, and then Jeff went to talk with Ray for the okay. Then Jeff said we could have a few minutes with David! We were in HEAVEN! Then afterwards, we went to the venue and froze our you know what’s off for about 3 hours til the show started! It was like 10 degrees that day!

  33. Anne-Marie says:

    Candy- If you look closely, you can see Pastel and me with our backs facing the camera, looking into the M&G room. Pastel is holding up her camera to get a picture!

  34. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Afternoon everyone. Joanie love your post. Holly and Aya moments and of course Josh(David). I’ve been voting on the Ryan Poll all day and night yesterday and all this while today. We were (David) only 40 points behind the GG’s last night and then in a few short minutes they rose to 105 points over us(David) Today the GG’s are 29.92 and David is at 27.44 and we can’t seem to budge the vote. As a matter of fact it’s lower . Go fugure! Anne-Marie story. loved your video and fabulous story. Love that we will have the virtual concert in March. On Feb. 26 I went to see David at the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, N.J. It was only a few minutes away from my house. Sadly it was hit by the hurricane Sandy. Closed now. They are redoing it. When they listed the tour towns I almost dropped dead with excitement. I took my grandson, husband, daughter and her friend and her friends daughter. We had a great time and got to meet David afterwards outside by the bus. We waited about an hour. We froze our backsides off but it was so worth it. I have still pictures and some videos. They are a little blurry and very noisey. It was a small venue and the best. The house was packed.

  35. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    P.S. That Rising Star video brought tears to my eyes. It was so heartwarming hearing David’s voice and the little little children singing together. I love David. 🙂

  36. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Kimberly- Saw your stuff yesterday on Twitter. Hope all is okay. Take care. 🙂 (((hugs))). Not a good place for sure!!

  37. Donna says:

    I remember that Buffalo concert very well. The fan who told David he was gorgeous was Tamy from Brazil, who was standing next to me.

  38. Anne-Marie says:

    Supergrandjudie- ha ha! The things we do to see David, right! But you are sooo right..it is so worth it!! Will do it again and again!!

  39. Anne-Marie says:

    Donna- That’s cool to know who that fan was! Does she live here now or was she visiting from Brazil?

  40. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Anne-Marie- Yep!! 😀

  41. Donna says:

    Tamy lived in Brazil, and my friend Nancy invited her to come to the tour. She went to 4 concerts with us: Lancaster, Allentown, Northampton, and Buffalo. She was a lot of fun and really appreciated being able to be there.

  42. Anne-Marie says:

    Revisiting that M&G video makes me wonder if those girls who were the lucky winners are still fans today. Hope so!!

  43. Anne-Marie says:

    Donna- That’s wonderful! Do you guys still keep in contact with her?

  44. Donna says:

    Nancy may, i’m not sure. I haven’t heard from her in years.

  45. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Donna, How nice of Nancy and you. I remember that quite a few fans would travel from different countries to see David. I wonder if other fans do that for their favorite artist.

  46. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Going to vote on Musiqtone. Wish they’d straighten the pictures out there. They have Taylor were David should be. Always some kind of mix-up. BBL

  47. Donna says:

    haha yes Judie, i feel guilty that I’ve never traveled to another country to see David in concert. At the Beaver Creek show, there was a woman from England on the shuttle with us from the airport, coming to see David.

  48. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Donna, Looks like you travel all over the USA to see David. Are you Donna from N.Y. or Donna who gave me a seat at Borders Book signing??

  49. Hello everyone. How’s everybody doing today/ Been busy voting on Ryan Seacrest poll Whew!! Memories of the EL poll.
    Been voting on musiqtone & other polls.
    Just watched the video from David M&G with the young girls. SOOO! cute.
    David is so you there too. I think the young girl with the pink scarf was smitten with him.
    Joanie—Thank you for the great post. The children singing to David was just prescious!
    Was washing dishes/clothes/voting, thinking! BABY I’M AMAZED how Davids fans have stayed strong all this time,@DavidArchie U R Loved!!!

  50. Judie—-You tell them to staighten out those pictures on Musiqtone. Ha! Ha!

  51. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Linda- I just came from Musiqtone. I think they straightened the pictures out. Now I don’t understand what they put along side of them. Anyways wise I’m crosseyed from all this constant voting. By time I meet David again I’m going to be crosseyed. 😆 😆

  52. Judie,—-Ha1 Ha! Think i’ll go check it out. still have 50 more vote to put in there.
    Have to go to my x-daughter in-laws house for dinner. B-day dinner for 2 of my grandsons. One turned 20 fri a & the other turned 17 in Dec, I’ll BB later.

  53. Donna says:

    oh sorry, I wandered off. This is Donna from Bookends.

  54. Hi Donna, i haven’t left yet but am leaving in a few. nice to meet you.

  55. Donna says:

    Hi Linda! are you going to the fan get-together in April?

  56. I’m trying to get someone to go with or drive me over there. I drive out of town but not in the LA traffic. Use to but not anymore. I have to check with kalei. think she said there are still tickets left.

  57. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Pick a letter A-Z

  58. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Except, don’t pick J, K, Q, U, V or X

  59. DA says:

    If everyone is voting & requesting we’ll see some good results for David & fans! If you don’t vote & request please don’t expect anything either it works both ways. Need more fans voting & requesting David. Fans create the buzz.

  60. Grammyj says:

    Just a reminder that what is really important to David is that we buy his new album when it comes out. That is what is important to his career. If you like to vote on polls, go for it, but David will need to make money in order to keep recording and tour when he returns from his mission.

  61. Kimberly Ann fan of one smokin Honduran!! says:

    DA expect? don’t expect a thing where David is concerned.. hope, wish for perhaps.

  62. Anne-Marie says:

    GrammyJ- Yes!! Totally agree!!

  63. Kimberly Ann fan of one smokin Honduran!! says:

    might be good to have centrally located concerts first.. volunteer my house!
    as for the cd
    mostly songs folks have heard.. one new?
    not sure how it will do and if DRA is any clue might just be to keep his name out there.
    don’t think guilt trips will sell the cd.
    looking forward to hearing Heart Falls Out and of course pre-ordered a few copies.

  64. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Video pick of the day Ribbon in the Sky, improptu singing at a restaurant in NJ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gVo2tG6T9E8

  65. tami says:

    is David still with Sony?

  66. LaLiliana says:

    Just wondering on the new song Heart Falls Out if it turns out to be on NMHF, whose heart falls out and why? Will it be a slow song? A rockin’ one? A gutwrenching tearjerkin’ melody? A loss, a love, an agony of pain or disappointment. Curious about the production, too.

    Dear David,
    I love surprises. <3

    LOVE this Barriers!!

  69. Jhen says:

    Excited for Heart falls out. Happy to see Nothing else better to do , Forevermore and Notice Me included in the tracklist.

  70. Candy says:

    When David was singing Ribbon in the Sky, Maureen, Wendy & I were across the street with a group of fans eating pizza, it was right after Duffys Hope. We had no idea he was so close. He was at a restaurant in DE called the Crab Shack.

  80. nora says:

    good morning, I’m beginning to wonder that no matter how much we request David’s music, fort some reason they won’t play David’s music no matter if it is current or not. There has to be something about David that they don’t like, for the life of me I don’t know what their problem is. Maybe I’m wrong, I don’t know.

  81. Janel aka Nellie says:

    In case people are still on this thread, there’s a new one up already.
