Trudy’s Concert Story ~ Lancaster, PA

– credit Maureen ABMS

TrudyFOD shared her concert story from David’s concert at the Chameleon Club in Lancaster, PA. 

Her GA Concert Strategies:  1) ARRIVE EARLY if you want a spot close to the stage, 2) When you get a good spot – DON’T MOVE! and 3) Sharing David’s music brings people together & hearing him sing live can make people fans for life!

You posted some pictures from when David performed at the Chameleon Club in Lancaster, PA the other day so it prompted me to write up my story.  I was there that night and had brought my niece with me (she was about 20 yrs old – and not really a big fan of David even though I gave her David’s first CD).  She was living in the area at the time so I thought what a great opportunity to see David perform and visit with her at the same time. 

It was one of those mosh pit concerts…and you had to wait outside in the cold for hours and hours.  My niece kept asking me how long do we have to wait and why are we waiting for so long? We were standing close to the entrance to the venue (some of the people managed to get a spot inside) and it was pretty chilly outside…but as the line grew down the street and around the corner…I explained that this is why you have to come early to a David Archuleta concert!  It’s David Archuleta!  And you come early so you can get in closer to the stage hopefully.  So we waited and waited…we finally get in and I started to rush towards the stage until I realized it was a pretty small area and I was not as close to the stage as I wanted to be…so I noticed they had 2 levels above us so I grabbed her and said “follow me!”… we ran up to the 3rd level and got right against the railing so we had a great view of the stage – David and the band! 

At one point right before the show started and people were coming in, my niece wanted to go and get a drink…and I told her that that would not be a good idea because as people were coming up it was starting to get crowded in back of us. I told her…”once you leave, you will probably lose your spot”…so needless to say she changed her mind.  One of the photos you posted yesterday showed David looking up…which reminded me that every time David did look up…I was waving down at him…and at one point he waved back (eeeeekkkkk!!!!!!!!!!).  My niece was surprised he did that…and I was just beyond ecstatic! And my highlight of the night besides seeing David perform (gah!) was that as we were walking out my niece turned to me and said, “Wow, he really does have a good voice.”  I said, “yes, now you know why I follow, listen and share his music.”

Cool Comments

– click to read

David did not make the Top 20 in this article – not sure what criteria they were using – and Violet left some insightful comments!  YOU GO GIRL!

“I don’t know what your personal criteria is but Archuleta has sold more albums and made more money each year than several on your list (he’s been in the Forbes top 10 Idol earners every year). If you are also counting non-pop-related things (which you seem to be) he hit the NY Times Bestseller list with his memoir, was the 2010 guest soloist for the Mormon Tabernacle Choir’s Christmas concert series (audience of 21,000 each night), was included in the Spanish language We Are the World “Somos el Mundo”, and starred in a 25-episode miniseries in the Philippines (including fist-fights haha). So far he has sung in 6 languages – English, Spanish (and won the ALMA award), Latin, French (a bit), Tagalog and Italian. Whatever you think of him, I admire him. He sticks to his values and he works extremely hard. David is currently serving a 2-year church mission in Chile (be back April 2014). His 6th album will be released March 26, 2013 and his twitter is DavidArchie (manager Kari tweets while David’s on his mission).”

  1. Virtue says:

    I’m ready ! I’m ready!

  2. Kimberly Ann says:

    Kalei ha thanks! think that might be the hottest pic of David yet.. lol you trying to kill us off before the concert starts!!?

  3. ksf says:

    Good morning everyone! hAppY Saturday! 🙂

    Incredible post. Thanks so much!

    Way to go, Violet!! I always love seeing your comments on various sites. You always set the record straight. You deserve “2 snaps up and a circle!” LOL.

    The virtual concert should be a blast, although I’ll miss it. Tonight is the hubby and I’s date night. So, can’t say I’m sad since I’ll be spending time with my own personal hunk. Lol.

    Response to comment from last thread:

    Philly Fan – Good point, although I really believe David is just naturally a shy person. I’m not saying that AI and the music biz hasn’t made him more guarded but I don’t think those things are the cause of his quiet nature. Also, from personal experience, I’ve often found that introverts are often some of the most deeply spiritual people you’ll find. What they allow others to see belies the deep contemplative nature of their thinking. I think that’s why philosophy appeals to David so much. He’s probably already had many ideas in his head that he is eager to discuss and share with others.

  4. violet4ever says:

    Haha – thank for posting my comment on that article. The blog writer was a pretty personable guy – I had a bit of discussion w/ him after that comment (he pointed out BEGIN’s low sales, I explained how BEGIN was a special album). Then (not thinking he would make a link public) I posted David’s cover of Beautiful just for the blog writer to see when he moderated the comment. He approved the post and responded he liked it. it went fairly well and at some point he said maybe David deserves more (than the honorable mention the guy gave him).

  5. Philly Fan says:

    Ksf! Thank you for your reply. The word I was looking for was guarded. lol Yes David is very shy and introverted. But it blows my mind how when he performs he appears to be anything but that shy/introvert. He is like two different people on and off the stage. Can’t figure him out. lol

  6. ksf says:

    Philly Fan – so true. The “split personality” phenomenon is really interesting. Actually, though I’ve seen that with other performers and artists as well. But, when I think about it, it makes sense. We all, no matter what personality, have that one place where we are most comfortable and feel the most secure. It allows us to expose the sides of ourselves that we may be otherwise afraid to show. I think the outgoing, confident David that we see onstage is just another aspect of him and the stage/singing is the avenue that allows him to JUST BE, without fear. It makes even more sense since he’s someone who struggles with words. On stage he doesn’t have the burden of worrying about that and can express himself through music. I imagine that its very freeing — like a weight being lifted.

  7. cq#DA2014 says:

    Thank you Kalei for the awesome Saturday post and the top pic..varrrry nice!!!!
    ksf, I agree with you that David is just naturally shy. I’ve read all the blogs that mention David from missionaries and it seems that all them always mention how shy he is, for the most part all say he is a nice guy, but shy. Being in his comfort zone (around same age, religion) and he still shy really says a lot.
    One thing for sure…David is another person when he is singing, especially when he is on stage….can’t wait for that day…he will kill us all with his awesomeness!!!!, lol.

  8. VaBeachArchie says:


    THANKS to all for the pic, collages and vids….sure brings back memories and makes me SMILE! Trudy love the story from your Lancaster concert! GO GET EM VIOLET! Your comments on ALL the sites are SPOT ON and very informative, especially to the those NOT familiar with David’s exploits! THANKS for putting into words what we’d ALL like to say! 🙂

    Work calls! ENJOY YOUR DAY GUYS! See you back here for the CONCERT..EXCITED! 🙂 🙂

  9. cq#DA2014 says:

    Omgosh, perfectly said ksf @10:24, totally agree.

  10. Kimberly Ann says:

    cq ksf agree.. why I think he will return to music it is the way he ‘speaks’ to the world!! thank goodness for us too!

  11. OoO says:

    I wish RBC Radio get a chance to hear and play BROKEN. can someone tweet them in Spanish and request this songs so more people can hear David awesome song.

  12. ksf says:

    cq – I agree with what you said about the fact that even now he’s shy. It’s definitely very telling and shows us clearly that its not the environment that makes him who he is. With that in mind, I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s just as shy when he returns, even though we often speculate that he’ll return more confident. I’m not saying that he won’t be changed, but it may be in ways that are not quite so obvious to fans. Close friends and family will see the differences more distinctly since they obviously have more intimate contact with him and know him much better than we do.

    Another thing too. For the same reasons I mentioned earlier, I think that David will always excel in pretty much any art form he chooses and not just because he’s a hard worker or an overachiever. I think he’s just naturally someone who NEEDS those channels so that his deepest nature — all those thoughts and emotions that he can’t or won’t express verbally — can find an outlet. Sometimes we’re amazed at how easily he’s able to emotionally connect with songs and/or how he clearly has amazing potential for acting but this deep emotional aptitude is actually what comes most naturally to him. These expressions are needs — not just passions.

  13. ksf says:

    Kim – yes. Sooo lucky for us! Btw, I’d like to RSVP for the “David concert” at your place. 😆

  14. Candy says:

    Sometimes you have to be careful what you wish for…just saw the msg from K. Posted on the OS, think fans got the msg, literally and left along with their money!

  15. Candy says:

    Dang, in the car can’t comment much thanks to eaily getting motion sick. Will ck in later.

  16. nora says:

    OoO-just to let you know that they did play Broken as one of the three songs they played the other day. It sounded so beautiful on the radio. Just love that station, check it every once in a while to see if they are playing his songs, have been lucky to hear them

  17. Kimberly Ann says:

    Candy what message?

  18. OoO says:

    Nora thanks so happy more people got to hear that awesome songs. Next will be BARRIER?? ;P

  19. Kimberly Ann says:

    Candy not sure what you are talking about but you can’t tell folks to go away and come back in 2014 and expect them to be around to buy anything. not to mention nmhf is just one song and new pics.

  20. tami says:

    candy~ hi! i don’t see any new message on the official site. what am i missing?

  21. sarahhazel says:

    Hello, everyone!!! Awesome post, Kalei!!!
    Virtual concert tonite! Woot!
    Yes, David’s not shy when on stage performing….well, when he rambles between songs….the shyness comes out sometimes.
    Top pic is definitely a H.O.T. tamale….hehe….. 😉

  22. tami says:

    and all her new tweets are about JT so ???? we are supposed to go away?

  23. Kimberly Ann says:

    tami no way I don’t listen to them.

  24. Kimberly Ann says:

    tami on my phone. I don’t see a new message either. was talking David’s last vlog and Kari’s commitment message on the OS site. plus the mother smothers telling folks to go knit,what have you til he gets back. ha well it seems it worked. knew there was a problem when DRA came out and no one cared his twitter feed was being spammed with that poll. also knew from the lack of RTs David is not really relevant to folks on social media etc right now.
    not sure his management is up on all that and Kari? maybe she has moved on already?
    heck don’t blame her. it is freakin JT for goodness sake!

  25. Ali says:

    tami – I think Candy was referring to the fan mail message that was posted back at the beginning of the year.

    Very interesting posts today about David and the duality in his personality. I think that on some level that’s one of the things that draws me to him — the contrast between him performing and him off-stage.

  26. tami says:

    thanks kim. yeah true. and she tweeted she’s know him since he was 14! how old is she anyway?! thought she was like 27-30. must be older than that if she’s known him that long! how old is he, 35?

  27. cq#DA2014 says:

    Kimberly, gosh I hope not, can you imagine the rest of the year without anything coming from Kari/David’s camp….dang so hard to keep that optimism going, GRRR!!!!

  28. Kimberly Ann says:


    anybody see a new message?

    as for sales of NMHF.. way I see it it is a cd to keep his name out there until he gets back. going with that.
    ha and boy do I wish it was 2014 LIKE NOW!!
    as for Kari moving on.. JT is great I know but hope she doesn’t leave him.
    dang the last one was a mess!!!

  29. Kimberly Ann says:

    cq Kari posted yesterday I think that fanmail was going to continue so there is hope. yeah I sure hope she doesn’t move on. or moves on and still gabs with us about what is up with David like she is his friend not necessarily in his employment? could work.
    way I see it I am here til I croak or I guess if he continues with what he is doing now. see no point cause I follow him for the music and his voice not his religion. would wish him all the best for sure. do think he will sing again though it is like I said who he is.
    hey never know the way JB is headed Scooter may need a new boy to mange come 2014. 😉

  30. Kimberly Ann says:

    yikes my dinner that I am going to is at 8:45 pm tonight.. will probably miss some of the concert tonight. I will take my phone and maybe I can hit the end of it. 🙁

  31. Kimberly Ann says:

    tami JT is great and his new cd is. ha my new romantic cd. lets look at it this way.. she can perhaps ‘steer’ David towards all this come 2014? 😀 😀 😀
    plus she might have connections.. WFM!!!

  32. breanne says:

    Can’t wait for the concert tonight!!

    Vote 1 song hourly for @DavidArchie’s Don’t Run Away (#1 for 2nd week) & Rainbow on Chart Central/Voters Hitlist:

  33. collegemom says:

    Kari has many clients and I assume that when David gets back she will juggle those clients and their activities. She can handle many clients but of course she can not always travel with each one and I expect that other people will travel with the clients depending on all of their schedules. There is no reason she can not stay on top of all their activities and even have “assistants” do some of the traveling with her orchestrating as “tour manager” or whatever under his main manager. Sounds like a great business plan to me. Kari will not always be able to travel with everyone or even just one client but I would like to see her remain in the bigger picture because she has a tremendous relationship with David and I think she they really trust each other and David (as well as JT or any other client) really needs to be able to trust those around them so that they can be honest with what they want and need and don’t have to guard their words, etc.

  34. Kimberly Ann says:

    collegemom sounds good to me!

  35. Good Morning everyone.. It’s still morning here in Cali!
    Collegemom, thank you for your comment. I am not good with words, i know what i want to say, but can’t always express myself, don’t want to make a fool of myself so i just try to read &listen to everyones comments.
    By the way, you all are great at expressing what you feel for David.
    I agree with everything Collegemom said. JMO.
    By the way, the tweet i read from Kari, was an ans to a tweet.
    Will David keep the same address when he returns?
    She answered, Yes! He will, by the looks of it he will have it for a long time!!!
    May not be exact words but close.Don’t know what she meant Tho!!

  36. McKenzie Harris says:

    One day David will have a manager who matches his own uniqueness and brilliance. When that happens, he will be unstoppable. No offence, but Crystal Bowersox’s manager is probably not the one for him.

  37. Kimberly Ann says:

    McKenzie seems very tame if she is who is his manager. but maybe it is supposed to be? maybe David is purposely going for the down lo approach?
    got me.

  38. tami says:

    mckenzie~ i agree. i also read gina likes to stay on the down low and i would love to know why. that’s pretty weird and ironic for someone in the PR/promotion business! wonder what her story is? i’ve seen no promo/appearances for crystal on TV or radio. have u guys? how strange

  39. tami says:

    supposedly gina got really mad at melinda when melinda took a pic of her and put it on twitter!!!

  40. Kimberly Ann says:

    all I know is Crystal is going to be on Broadway soon for a play about Patsy Cline.
    maybe she is the type of manager that David likes? maybe like I said he wants to be low key and why he chose her?
    or maybe she was the only one who would take him as he is?
    what I mean is he knew he was going away for two years and has special considerations with his music and such so she fit him well?

  41. ksf says:

    Linda – For what it’s worth, I think you’re great at expressing yourself! I seem to have the opposite going on — too many words. Lol.

    Btw, David is one lucky guy. Lol. He’s got all of us carefully dissecting his whole life…career, personality, finances, love life…you name it, we’ve got him covered. All this in depth psycho-analysis FOR FREE! 😆

  42. Kimberly Ann says:

    ksf ha true that.. oh and sure hope he never reads.. most of it!!

  43. nora says:

    Tami-there are no ads on I tunes for Crystal’s single or CD-gets me mad because they have all these CD for pre-order and they don’t have David’s, they have these random people that you never heard of, so anybody who doesn’t know the name oof his cd can’t find it, this I don’t understand, if you put his name in it comes up with all his old cds & NMHF isn’t even listed you have to put in DRA. Can’t get an answer from Kari, Tweeted her 2 times, What does Eone do for David?

  44. tami says:

    good question nora! i would like to know too!

  45. Kimberly Ann says:

    eOne Music ‏@E1Music
    New preorder David Archuleta @Davidarchie – No Matter How Far on @iTunesMusic » http://ow.ly/j2OKc

  46. ksf says:

    Kim – haha! Good point! 😆

  47. tami says:

    i would love to know also if david’s secret gf is on twitter or if she’s on the down low too? lol! who is she???

  48. tami says:

    people in utah must have some idea who it is! were they all sworn to secrecy? why are no clues leaking out??

  49. Heidijoy says:

    Just to add to the Shyness subject: Dean Kaelin explained early on that Prodigies many times develop slower in Social type things as they are so focused on the area that they are a Prodigy in. David for example has always been way ahead of his age/development in Music and as you have said more shy socially. He doesn’t even consider himself shy but Quiet and focused. I have surmised that what people call “shy” on the Mission is David’s humility and spiritual focus. Some of them expected a very outgoing person because he is a “Star”. I noticed David really trying to almost hide his Stardom while on his Mission. …and He has been a Star of the Music Productions as that is his gift . Sorry didn’t mean to ramble.

  50. When i feel confused about Davids future in music i always go back to this interview.


  51. nora says:

    kim-that comment from Eone music for NMHF on itunes is great if people know about it but if you go to I tunes and put his name in and NMHF it comes up with nothing, so why is this, you should be able to put his name in and cd name and go to the page to order, am I doing something wrong?

  52. Kimberly Ann says:

    nora if I search ‘david archuleta’ on itunes then click on albums NMHF comes up. also when I put in ‘david archuleta no matter how far’ too.
    think it is not around because it is not all that popular.

  53. Kimberly Ann says:

    tami ha.. you are a pip.

  54. nora says:

    kim-thanks, ther are so many on pre-order that are not popular either, or maybe i’m not up to date with all the other artists out there, they even have ace for John Foggerty, he was popular in my days, it that is how you spell his name.

  55. tami>> surprised you haven’t found yet, your our Sherlock Holmes, LOL!!
    But then it could not be true & thats why no one knows the ans.
    tami>> i’ll say it again! YOUR FUNNY!!!! 😉 😉

  56. Don’t know what happen there!!
    My comp or internet takes 1 whole minute to post.
    meant to say o left OUT of the commnet 3:59


  58. ksf says:

    Heidijoy – I agree. I think he probably has been affected by being a prodigy. I do think its a combination though. Besides being humble and focused, I think that he is just plain shy, which is not necessarily a bad thing. It’s just a description of someone who is reserved and sometimes uncomfortable with people. Clearly, he hasn’t let it stop him.

    On a similar note, I found this fascinating article about introverts. I can definitely relate:

  59. Candy says:

    Kimk your msgs at 11:44 & 12:13 are exactly what I was talking about. Fans took her advice, they left. Found something else, hoping they come back in 2014.

  60. Candy says:

    LoL old time rock & roll playing in the car. Loved Davids Guitar Hero commercial.

  61. Amanda Archuleta :)@AmandaAArchie
    @kariontour Kari will David still have his fan mail address when he comes back?
    Kari Sellards@kariontour
    @AmandaAArchie as long as he has mail coming in he will have it. I think it will be around for a ver long time!

  62. tami says:

    linda and kim~ LOL! 🙂 o m g i just found someone but too soon to tell if it’s her 😉

  63. sarahhazel says:

    ksf–thanks for the article….I’m an introvert too….but can’t picture you as one….haha….just kidding….LOL…. 😉

  64. ksf says:

    Not sure if David is an introvert or not. We know that he does like his alone time…

    Here are the responses to the article I posted earlier. Most of the world are extroverts, but what if introverts ruled the world?


  65. Kimberly Ann says:

    Candy ha think we may be on the same wave length.

  66. ray says:

    is this rack kari over the coals week,after we have done a good job on david

  67. tami says:

    i would call myself an introvert too. i would rather be home alone than at a party or surrounded by people but when i am in a social situation i have no fear of talking to people so maybe i’m half and half like david or maybe we are all like david. lol ! 🙂 the girl i found on twitter who could be david’s secret gf, her name starts with the letter A and she has known david for many years. and i just found out today she was on season 8 of idol! anyone know who i’m talking about?

  68. ksf says:

    sarahhazel – LOL. I don’t know and I can’t explain it. Clearly, I’m comfortable here but in “real life” I used to be painfully shy, to the point where I coudn’t look people in the eye. I’m definitely not as shy now but still often very uncomfortable around people. Like the article said, I have good social skills but dread social situations because they are draining. It’s much easier to be alone. Here, I just let my fingers do the talking. 🙂

  69. tami says:

    it’s not Ashley

  70. Heidijoy says:

    ksf Interesting articles!!

  71. sarahhazel says:

    ksf–that’s exactly the way I am in social situations…but it also depends on what kind of crowd I’m with….mostly uneasy when there’s a lot of people I’m not familiar with….but I think I am able to mask it if necessary…..carry a lively conversation but deep inside I just want to sneak away to a quiet place…LOL

  72. ksf says:

    tami – According to the article, you are an introvert but you’re not shy. They are not the same thing. That explains why you have no fear in being around and talking to people.

    hehe…I’ll have to investigate who this girl is you’re talking about.

  73. Kimberly Ann says:

    ray ha who is messing with kari? dang I wish I was her! all we are talking about is if she is going to stay with David when he gets back. she is on a roll with JT right now and from what I see on twitter and his huge sales it is a windfall. she needs to make a living and bet there is a lot going on with him.
    we all love kari and don’t want her to go and think collegemom has it pretty good. she might not be able to do all things with David but bet she can do some things.
    unless that is she enters some kind of contract saying otherwise I suppose.

  74. TAMI!!! Aye! Aye! Aye!, This suspense is going to kill you HUH!!!!!

  75. Kimberly Ann says:

    ray if anything we are talking the other side of his team.. whoever they are. if anyone at all come to think about it.

  76. sarahhazel says:

    ksf–this test says I’m an introvert….LOL….like I didn’t know already. 🙂

  77. sarahhazel says:

    Hurry, summon the Archusleuths to find out who that GIRL is!
    ksf and tami, you lead!!! 😉

  78. tami says:

    thanks ksf! that does make sense. her name is anna kaelin, dean kaelin’s daughter. she is a country/pop singer and very pretty! wonder if she is the one?

  79. ksf says:

    sarahhazel – I can sooo relate to that feeling of wanting to sneak away to a quiet place! I can fake it but on the inside I feel like a little kid on the first day of kindergarten. I’ve always felt that way for as long as I can remember and its never gone away. I used to pray that God would take away those feelings but I think instead he’s helped learn to not let them stop me and to appreciate the person he made me to be.

  80. Kimberly Ann says:

    ha don’t know anything about her but she is the daughter of a friend..

  81. sarahhazel says:

    Anna is a talented young lady. Would’ve been nice if D was the one in this vid LOL 🙂

  82. tami says:

    now i’m wondering if she was the blond girl who was playing the guitar when he was singing a beatles song somewhere outside think it was in CA. anyone remember that?

  83. ksf says:

    sarahhazel – took the test. Me too! 🙂

  84. Kimberly Ann says:

    tami vid you posted.. she is talented. pretty too. guess not lds though.

  85. Philly Fan says:

    Tami! lol on the GF. Here I go startin trouble. I just viewed that video and she could certainly pass for the girl on the balcony that he was leaning into a few years back I think it was taken in a stadium setting. Her hair color looks as though it has changed. hehe

    kim~ yeah don’t know. hard to tell from her tweets if she is lds or not

  87. Kimberly Ann says:

    sarahhazel ha I took the test.. extrovert but had to fudge some. don’t usually take on hotties cause that would most likely get me in deep doo doo!! 😆

  88. Kimberly Ann says:

    tami was just guessing by the way she was dressed and such. liked the video.. romantic!! ha whateven if it was David!!

  89. tami says:

    kim~ just checked. the kaelin family is LDS

  90. tami says:

    kim~ omg i know lol! i was hoping to find a vid of her and david singing together! gonna keep looking

  91. ksf says:

    Heidijoy – they really are! I’ve always been fascinated by psychology.

    tami – Dean Kaelin’s daughter, huh? Kim is right…she is the daughter of a friend… 😉

    sarahhazel – very attractive AND would be someone that David has known for a long time… 🙂

  92. Kimberly Ann says:

    tami cool. ha before long you’ll have them married!!

  93. tami says:

    kim~ i hope not!!! lol

  94. ksf says:


    Daughter of a friend
    Possibly caught on camera in “close contact” with our man

    I smell a scent… Lol

  95. ksf says:

    Good sleuthing, tami! 🙂 Maybe Candy can “confirm” it. (Hint, hint 😉 ) Lol

  96. tami says:

    ksf~ yeah, now all we need is a confirmation from candy lol! but she’s not talking

  97. tami says:

    omg ksf!! BRAINSHARE! LOL 🙂

  98. HA! HA! HA!
    tami! Ksf> I’m reading your comments, & you have me ROTF!!!!
    It’s fun speculating though! LOL! Got nothing else better to do.
    I think i better take my shower & start getting ready for the concert. I want to look good!!!!

  99. Philly Fan says:

    There is a ytube video titled David with a girl and the girl in the video does look like DK’s daughter figure wise. Can’t see her face very clearly.

  100. ksf says:

    tami -LOL 😆

    Linda – haha! I’m sure you’ll look fabulous for the concert. 🙂

    Anyway, keep up the good work guys. I’m off to a date with my Prince Charming. TTYL 🙂

  101. tami says:

    thanks linda! omg i almost forgot about concert! thanks! 🙂

  102. tami says:

    have fun ksf!!! 🙂

  103. tami says:

    thanks philly! 🙂 gonna go look for that right now!

  104. Tami! Pick us up and put us down! LOL! Now your going on a date with your prince charming, live us here kicking! Ha! Ha! just kidding!

    I was watching her vids & i’m just not sure. I have yet to see her smile on any of them.
    Here i go! tami left & she left me wanting more.
    She doesn’t fit the bill!. But what do i know and nobody cares what i think, but its MOO!!

  105. tami says:

    linda~ i’m still here lol!

    philly~ i can’t find it! what exactly should i put in the search box? thanks

  106. violet4ever says:

    Re the Chameleon Club concert in Lancaster…. Took my fiance with me. I can’t handle standing out in the cold so we waited in the car until they started letting people in then we got on the end of the line. Bad move. By the time we got in the place was jammed. They were over capacity. The lower floor was jammed and we could not see the stage. As it ends up we should have stayed there – maybe we would have seen the bands’ heads. We went up to the 3rd level even though the guy warned us we would not be allowed back down because they were over capacity downstairs. We went to the 3rd floor balcony but there was no room left at the rail so neither of us had any view of David or the band for the entire concert (fiance is 6ft tall and I sat on a handrail and was slightly higher – no view). So my first solo David concert was an audio-only one.

    Finally, during an encore when a few people left, and was able to squat and peek between the waists of two skinny girls and see part of David 🙂

  107. sorry, this is the vid TAMI

  108. Kimberly Ann says:

    lol well she is pretty and can sing. got my vote!
    hope for a duet and a video.. just like the one up there!! 🙂

  109. Candy says:

    sorry for both of the posts and runs earlier, I was in the car, coming home passed seven accidents in a 1/4 mile stretch on the parkway, ran into a blinding snow storm, came out of nowhere.

    Ray-if you are referring to my comment, dont know how you got I was raking Kari over the coals, today was the first I saw her comment on the OS (dont visit there often) and could see fans did what she suggested…found something else to do. How was that raking her over the coals…

  110. sarahhazel says:

    LOL….mystery girl speculations galore!….I know one day we’ll get the answer! 🙂

  111. tami says:

    thanks linda!!!

  112. Philly Fan says:

    Tami! Sorry I stepped away from the computer and didn’t see your request 6:07 pm but saw that Linda provided the video. It could be her don’t you think? Her hair appears straighter but that was a couple of years ago. lol

  113. Just read Kari’s post on OS. I have read it before. To me it just means, live your life and enjoy it until David returns. I do just that. But i enjoy FOD, tweeter, vids etc on my spare time, because i enjoy all of it. JMO!!! Some have moved on, we hope that they will be back when he returns. Actually some of our MODs & fansites are taking a break too! Hopefully they will start up when he returns. We will see by the end of the year!!! People will be stirring by the end of the year, i’m pretty sure of that.

  114. sarahhazel says:

    Linda–lots of peeps doing “Plan B” right now while D is away….hope they return come 2014…..he will be needing a lot of support….like, a LOT.

  115. Candy says:

    Linda- There are fans that hang on her every word, like it is law. Personally, I felt it was a suggestion, others took it literally…

  116. tami says:

    thanks philly, yes i think it could be her!

  117. tami says:

    i think alot of fans were hurt/insulted by “kari’s(david) statement” because it implies 1. that we weren’t already living our lives and 2. that we are stupid and need to be told to live our lives.

  118. sarahhazel says:

    Anna graduated from college in 2008…so that’s when D was just 16? Oh, well, I guess age gap is not a problem….haha…. 😉

  119. tami says:

    oh thanks sarah! i was wondering how old anna was! she’s probably not the one then, lol!

  120. Kimberly Ann says:

    uh oh. an older woman no less!

  121. Philly Fan says:

    After reading that comment on David’s OS site I also took it as a suggestion but I also had the feeling that Kari was also saying that she may be busy in the future and won’t have the time that the fanbase required from her. Think she new that JT was making a comeback didn’t know that she also has known him since he was 14 yrs old. Based on her tweets she may be very busy this year with him touring etc. Hope by the time David returns and picks up where he left off she will join him again.

  122. tami-Maybe there still a chance for you! LOL!

  123. tami says:

    still thinking it could be mietra. she has tweeted about david recently saying she needed to pray for him.

  124. tami says:

    linda~ omg yeah rightLOL! i wish! i’d have a better chance with jeff 🙂

  125. sarahhazel says:

    I’m not surprised a lot of fans moved on….2 years is a long time to wait….think what happened was inevitable, IMO.

  126. sarahhazel says:


  127. Sarahhazel, tami..ROTF with you!!!!!

  128. Philly Fan says:

    Sarahhazel @6:56pm Well said. I think it started after his CFTH tour and that tweet was leaked about going on a mission and then not being able to get things going again. And now this 2yr hiatus. David has a lot of work to do when he returns he will definitely need an awesome single or a duet with a Top 40 artist. JMHO

  129. I would be delighted if it was Mietra! She reminds mean so much of his sister, reading and exchanging tweets. She is really something. I like her and her spunk!!!
    But i think she is just a very good friend. remember she said she first met David when he was in the 8th grade & she was in the 9th i believe, She just turned 22,

  130. sorry, messed that one up
    She reminds me of his sisters.
    She returns my tweets sometimes & she’s funny but says what she thinks!

  131. Candy says:

    same here Sarah-think it was kind of inevitable, its a long time and while other artists have often taken a break, they still communicated with fans.

  132. Philly Fan, i totally agree with you! He has a lot of work to do when he comes back & a duet with a top 40 artist would help! But David has his comeback planned, i truly believe it. That is how DAVID ROLLS!!!!

  133. Candy says:

    Philly Fan-little did we know that “leaked Tweet” that went viral and caused havoc would turn out to be 100% true. I had forgotten about it..


  135. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Hello Everyone!

    Hey Linda! Whats Meitras twitter name, I forgot?

  136. tami says:

    linda~ i would be delighted too! i really like mietra too. so nice how she replies to our tweets instead of ignoring us 🙂

  137. Philly Fan says:

    I remember that tweet like it was yesterday. Keep thinking to myself noooooooooooooooo please don’t go you have a lot of work to do. lol

  138. tami says:

    hi beth! @MietraAarabi

  139. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Hey tami! Thats right, ok, thanks 😀

  140. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    tami, I cant seem to pull her up on twitter.

  141. tami! by the way! Mietra said she likes fair rides, trying different things and food. She likes Pad thai!,She loves adventures. Does that remind you of someone.

  142. tami says:

    linda~ yes i think her and david have alot in common!

  143. tami says:

    beth~ that’s weird

  144. tami says:

    beth~ it shows up for me as soon as i type in mietra

  145. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    tami, yeah, I’ll try later. My dominos order just came, time for dinner 😀 be back in a few.

  146. tami says:

    beth~ i just RTed one of her tweets, so click on that

  147. tami says:

    beth~ omg pizza, that sounds so good right now! enjoy!

  148. Mietra Aarabi ‏@MietraAarabi

    I had a dream that I married Russ Nebeker & we had a black kitten named Robert Downey Jr.

  149. Beth try that! tweeter for Mietra.

  150. tami says:

    it still could be anna. maybe david likes older women 🙂

  151. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    tami. actually I’m having a Chicken Parm sand 😀 yummmo

  152. tami says:

    beth~ dominoes makes sandwiches now?! didn’t know that! awesome 🙂

  153. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Thanks Linda!

  154. tami says:

    beth~ did u hear about the stupid snowstorm coming on sunday night??! we are in the 6-10 inches zone! unbelieveable!

  155. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    tami, No I didnt, oh my heck, more snow? 🙄 😀

  156. Tami! WEll that was fun speculating on a gf for David. Truth known, he probably doesn’t have one. But it was fun, kept us occupied today.
    Now, just 15 min till VIRTUAL CONCERT, showered, and ready to go!! LOL!!!

  157. tami says:

    JT’s fans might be having fun now but they waited a very long time for him to make a new album. at least with david, he keeps the goodies coming! lol 🙂 just hope it continues cuz if it doesn’t lots of people will be very sad. kari sure has a fun life, lucky her! 🙂

  158. tami says:

    beth~ maybe mpls will miss out on this one! not sure. have to check the weather channel again

  159. tami1> I think David has a lot more prepared for us. I’m sure of it.

  160. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Linda! I think the concert starts at 8:30, 35 minutes from now, thats what it says near the top of the thread.

  161. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    You’re Welcome Linda 😀

  162. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    I cant remember my password, cant comment at the concert. Thought I knew it, must’ve switched it 🙄

  163. tami says:

    i tried to watch but couldn’t handle it. reminded me of the one david concert i went to where i was surrounded by screaming teenage girls.

  164. Grannycrush says:

    I was getting the audio, but the video was stuck in one spot, and then it all went away. So frustrating. There sure was a lot of screaming even during the slower songs.

  165. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Goodnight Everyone, Take Care All!

    I’ve been watching the concert, but then
    my computer shut off, guess it could’nt
    handle the Archuleta 😀 Took awhile
    to get my computer on, may shut off again,
    so I’m saying G’night!

  166. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Taking a break from the concert…Just gotta say how much I love the song “Running”…..and David singing it in concert is even better…Miss Vicki

  167. Kimberly Ann says:

    just got the end of the concert.. LOVED!!
    oh and I loved the future concert pics!!
    DON’T LET GO!!
    thanks FOD!!

  168. jeani/ut says:

    That was so so so fun. Thank you for the great concert. What memories.

  169. Shanny in Australia says:

    Did I just miss it? Looked like it was all up and running, then things shut down and it said ‘Off Air’. ?

  170. Kimberly Ann says:

    tami ha that is the part I like.. but it is usually me doing the whooping it up!!!

  171. angelbymyside says:


  172. Shanny in Australia says:

    Oh stink, so I did just miss it…. :-/

  173. angelbymyside says:

    Awwww I saw some of my concert pics from the David/Demi tour in Philly on the promo for the next virtual concert!!! 😀

  174. The virtual concert was awesome. david was so young and he was adorable. especially on his very first Solo tour.

  175. angelbymyside says:

    I got a tear in my eye when he sang Angels at the end of the concert! You can tell just how much he LOVES his fans!

  176. angelbymyside says:

    It was nice that Kari stopped by to say hello during the concert!

  177. Kimberly Ann says:

    angel Kari stopped by?! fabulous!!

  178. nora says:

    That was an amazing concert thank you so much FOD, don’t know what us fans would do without you. Makes me appreciate David and his voice and the talent that he is, and how he loves his fans, no one out there like him. I was fine until Angels, the the tears, miss him so much can’t wait for 2014. Thanks again for the awesome virtual tour, much appreciated.

  179. Kimberly Ann says:

    Shanny they might rerun it?

    loved that Boise outfit and all that he did and the crowd!! FIRE!!

  180. angelbymyside says:

    kimk ~ Yes she was there for a few minutes and when David was singing Coma La Flor, she asked something along the lines of… did we want David to do a Spanish album when he gets back? 😀 😀 😀

  181. nora says:

    I think Kari got the hint that we all want a Spanish CD, when David come back, it was good of her to comment.

  182. Kimberly Ann says:

    angel huh?! and what pray tell did folks say??!!!! 😯

  183. He just revived what i already knew, that he is awesome, talented, and worth waiting for.
    ANGELS & ATM, did me in! hope he sings them on his 2014 concert, because there will be a 2014 concert, YEP!!!!!

  184. Lucy says:

    I missed the concert too, just got home from work, sounds like it was fun:)

  185. angelbymyside says:

    kimk ~ three guesses lol! It was a resounding YES!!

  186. angelbymyside says:

    Linda ~ I would wait for him for ten years if I had to! He is worth the wait!

  187. Kimberly Ann says:

    angel ha.. she knows full well we WOULD LOVE IT!!! EEEP!!!

  188. I know we will have a spanish song! Yes sireee!!!!

  189. angelbymyside says:

    kimk ~ I bet he records a song or two in Spanish…. don’t know if we will survive it though haha

  190. angelbymyside says:

    Goodnight all. Thanks FOD for a great concert tonight! We are almost at the one year mark until his return. 😀

  191. Kimberly Ann says:

    angel hmm let me see.. he’ll come back.. 23.. tan.. with an accent.. and sing to us in Spanish…
    dare I say maybe a little salsa too??!!!

  192. muldur says:

    Thank you, FOD, for the virtual concert. I think that was just what I needed. Been really missing David’s live voice lately :).

    The whole concert played fine for me with great audio. I am sad some of you didn’t get to see or hear the whole thing.

    Looking forward to a few more of these virtual shows hopefully! And lots of live real shows in the future. In Spanish, too 🙂

  193. nora says:

    time for bed Good Night all. BBT

  194. Muldar, i hope we have more of these concerts this year, They revive you, Just hearing David sing in a concert. It was great, Want more!!!

  196. Shanny in Australia says:

    Just carching up on comments….interesting extro/introvert conversation. And thanks for the links – I think i’ve finally figured myself out (I knew I wasn’t an introvert or an extrovert). Never considered the fact that shy and introvert are not the same thing but that hits the nail on the head. Definitely an introvert in every way here but i’m not shy. I wonder if introverts are over represented on online groups like this? Can socialize how and when you want to kind of thing.

    As for the girl…i’ve heard and seen a few things on the grapevine – a pretty dark haired girl who apparently has been on several dates with David – and at his instigation. But that may be saying too much and really I don’t know if there is anything more serious than that so no use saying anything more.

  197. Shanny in Australia says:

    Kim, hopefully there will be an encore performance. I really wanted to see this one since I wasn’t around during that first tour. I hope at least we can have a few more virtual concerts over the next year, even if not the exact same one.

    I never thought about the strong possibility of D coming home with an accent. That would be strange and cool. lol

  198. Kimberly Ann says:

    Shanny kind of think he might be pretty successful if he recorded something in Spanish. or even a mix.

  199. Shanny in Australia says:

    I think if David has some girl waiting for him, she would be praying for him pretty regularly. So the fact that Meitra is saying she should say a few prayers on his behalf tells me she’s not heavily invested like a girlfriend would be. So that crosses Mietra off. lol

    If I were dating David, I certainly wouldn’t be advertising the fact. Privacy please. lol

  200. Shanny in Australia says:

    Kim, I would like to hear David sing in spanish and I would love for him to tap into that market most of all …but if I had a choice I would hope for a mix of songs, both English and Spanish. When it comes to David, I like to understand the message of the song and not just the sound of it – as exquisite as he would make it sound of course. 🙂

  201. alana says:

    Boneneng, that girl looks familiar.

  202. Shanny in Australia says:

    I don’t like it when people say David isn’t manly. That would be demeaning, hurtful and humiliating to David if he knew people were saying that about him. Besides there are different ways to be ‘a man’. Decent, kind, respectful, wise, responsible, hard working, reliable, patient, long suffering, dedicated etc are wonderful manly qualities. David exhibits all of those. Plus he seems to be manly enough to get the ladies all in a tizz lol…..

  203. alana says:

    Oh yeah, I have seen that second pic before.

    And who says David isnt manly????????

  204. alana says:

    wish i could remember where he was in those pics. But he looks really happy and is smiling a real smile(not a fake one) lol

  205. Boneneng says:

    I’m not sure if the second pictures is dean kailn’s daughter?

  206. Shanny in Australia says:

    Was just thinking about how people from all sorts of industries have sometimes complained about University graduates not having enough work place readiness. Also one of the hardest hurdles to overcome when just embarking on your career is the lack of real experience. Education and theories are great but experience is often the real teacher. I’m thinking David has tons of real world experience that tons of music graduates would love to have.

  207. alana says:

    I agree Shanny with your def. of a real man…and David definitely is one.

  208. Shanny in Australia says:

    I don’t know what Dean Kaelin’s daughter looks like but that was a young adult gathering he attended in Utah.

    Alana, people have said it. Just been waiting for a time far distant from the incidents to say that. It popped into my head tonight, so I thought now would be as good a time as any. 🙂

  209. alana says:

    well those people are wrong!!!!!! lol Oh and I looked up anna K and she is blonde and doesnt look like any of the girls in that pic.

  210. alana says:

    Yep, everything David has done and experienced will come in handy for his future career and personal. remember how david didnt like being hugged before he was on idol? then he goes on the show and has cook hugging him plus fans on the tours, AND now he is in a culture where he has to let women kiss him lol david!! everything has a purpose ha ha

  211. alana says:

    So Shanny, is that dark haired girl in the pic the same girl you heard about “on the grapevine”?

  212. Shanny in Australia says:

    Alana, just like his recent tweet.
    Talking of kisses and being prepared for bigger things to come….NA part 2 with a kissing scene?

    lololol Just kidding. Just know a few peeps will like to chew on that thought for a while. 😉

  213. alana says:

    Would love NA prt Dos!

  214. Shanny in Australia says:

    Nope. 🙂

  215. Boneneng says:

    When this picture came out, I heard a rumor that he is dating .

  216. alana says:

    Yes, his tweet could have been referring to that among other things ha! That girl is pretty, wonder why she was singled out for a pic with D. Kinda looks like Lupe a bit? I dunno, got a bad case of insomnia and cant shut off my brain. Miissing D a lot lately.. well more that usual anyway.

  217. alana says:

    Darn it Shanny, I was already imagining what their babies would look like!!

  218. Shanny in Australia says:

    Alana, me too! Would just love part 1 on DVD for that matter.

    Boneneng, was it one particular person or just dating people in general? I know he has said several times that he goes on dates.

  219. alana says:

    about the not manly thing i agree it would hurt D to hear but he seems to be ok with who he is and knows his truth…..AND he WOULD NOT GOING AROUND WITH HIS SHIRT OFF AND HIS PANTS PULLED DOWN to try and “prove his manliness” FO’ SHO’
    (though i wouldnt mind the no shirt thing) just kidding l0l

  220. Shanny in Australia says:

    Lol. No babies.
    Hmmm…that girl isn’t his cousin is she…? On second looks, she does look slightly familiar.

  221. alana says:

    I dont think that is his cousin

  222. Shanny in Australia says:

    Oh my goodness, if that’s what manliness is, then give me a feminine man any day! lol
    Hmmm…that shirtless thing…another NA part 2 thing…?

    Just jokes. Just jokes.

  223. alana says:

    that is what le Beiber did recently

  224. alana says:

    i have seen pics of only two of D’s cousins ..well female ones..Vanessa and another one who was with D when he entered the MTC, and they arent that girl. anyway….since you wont let me in on your secret..Le Sigh!

  225. alana says:

    Going to try and get a few Z’s in before STOP comes online and tells me to mind my own business about D’s dates. lol hey, it is all in good fun..i just want him to be happy in all aspects of his life.
    Night..or guess should say morning…nice talking to you Shanny. I usually lurk but you are one of my fav posters. and Im not just saying that to get you to spill your secret.

    (did it work?) J/K

  226. Shanny in Australia says:

    Lol….aww thanks Alana. 🙂

    Sleep well. Kinda trying to get a nap here too. It was fun chatting with ya. Thanks for keeping me company.

    I wonder why she looks a little familiar then….? I’m going to be mulling over that now instead of getting some rest….

  227. Shanny in Australia says:

    sorry about the delayed response there Alana…it wasn’t letting me post my comment. :-/

  228. alana says:

    no prob shanny . still cant sleep i think they are playing the concert again>??? going to watch that.. talk to you later.

  229. Boneneng says:

    Shanny-All I know he’s dating somebody from utah. I decided to pulled this picture because you mention somebody with dark hair. Like myself I was wondering who’s this lucky girl! I been wondering about her for a long time.

  230. Grammyj says:

    Actually we do NOT know that he has a girlfriend. Fans have been having fun speculating.

  231. Grammyj says:

    The girl in the picture is really cute. She could be his girlfriend but we certainly don’t know that she is.

  232. Kimberly Ann says:

    good morning folks!
    Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!

    ohh they make a cute couple!!
    as for the manly issue.. djs from my station before they played Crush used to say that.
    kind of think guys say that about other guys cause they are jealous.
    thing is like Shanny says.. David has no problem attracting the ladies.
    somebody most think he is pretty manly!

    Good morning FOD! The Virtual Concert last night was AMAZING! So many GREAT songs sung by the BEST singer on the planet! LOVED the different venues and crowds.. fans.sure were CRAZY for him! Hope to have that again come 2014!

    Don’t know when David would have had time to really have a girlfriend…been on the road pretty much for the last 5 years! David sure has alot of girl FRIENDS though. Sometimes that ends up being alot more down the road….who knows? David does!

    HAPPY St. Patrick’s Day! ENJOY! 🙂

    I missed the concert last night, had a horrific headache, we hit one of those 10 mile stretches of roads that nightmares are made of. Road turned to a sheet of ice in an instant, 20 accidents, one man killed, it was beyond scary. By the time we pulled in our driveway, my head was pounding. Fed the cats and went to bed.
    I really hope they do a rerun, sounds like the concert was wonderful.
