Clay Aiken’s back in town and he is better than ever! Tonight’s concert was beyond the wildest expectations of the fans in attendance.
The concert was polished, professional and classy. Clay’s voice was phenomenal on the fresh arrangements of the timeless classics.
Clay opened the show with a rousing rendition of Mack The Knife and closed the show with a poignant version of Moon River. Each song chosen for the program allowed Clay to showcase his wonderful voice. It is amazing how his voice soared on the variety of songs. Each one highlighted his versatility and range.
It was a treat to see Ruben and Clay together again. I had forgotten what a beautiful voice Ruben has. The surprise of the evening was the guest appearance of Linda Eder who is one of the best female vocalist performing today. Linda joined Clay in singing the song, Crying. Clay announced that Linda recorded the song with him for his new album.
The evening was beyond even the highest expectations. I wish that every one of you could have been there to celebrate this wonderful performance.
It was wonderful meeting so many great Clay fans where ever we were. Thank you to each of you for your kind words and sharing the excitement of the evening with me.
It is late and so I will wait to post more tomorrow. Just realize that you are in for something very special!!
All I can say is SQUEEE!!!!!! 🙂
I could not be more excited as Linda Eder is one of my favorite Bway singers. I saw her in Jekyll and Hyde. I bet Clay and Linda's voices together is perfection. I can't wait for this cd!!!
From all the Red Reports I have read on the boards tonight it sounds like Clay Aiken was amazing. A beautiful performance and sounding fantastic. Bravo Clay. You deserve all the standing O's you got and I am glad to stood still and took it all in. June seems so far off, but so looking forward to the PBS Special and the new CD.

What a great evening, and I wasn't even there. Reading recaps of the show, it really sounds like an evening to never forget. Can not wait for this to air on PBS.
The anticipation has been bulding! I was excited even before Clay Aiken's concert, but now I'm REALLY excited! I can't wipe the smile off my face just from reading the reports of those who were there. I can't wait for it to air on PBS and to get the DVD.
It was over too soon. The voice, the music, the stage – AWESOME!
Post hoing to add this:
When one man can captivate an audience with only his voice and his music that's talent.
Oh this sounds so fantastic!!! I would have given anything to have been there but it wasn't to be. I am so very grateful to all who bring us these tiny morsels to whet our appetite! Thank you to all.
Did I mention, I LOVE Clay Aiken!
