KETC is the PBS station in St. Louis. According to their website, the station:
engages and entertains the community with a diversity of ideas, issues, discourse and experiences that inform our present, guide our future and illuminate a wider world.
On Monday, Gloria Whitmore at KETC announced that Tried & True: Live! will be broadcast on October 20th, at 9:00pm. The station had not committed to the show before and now feels it will be a match for its patrons. I believe that KETC is the 112th station that has Tried and True in their line-up.
The Clay Aiken Official Fan Club announced the pre-sale for the Houston, TX concert will begin on October 4th at 10am PDT.
The Tried & True concert will be held at Jones Hall. Jones Hall is a monument to the memory of Jesse Holman Jones, a towering figure in Houston during the first half of the 20th century. Before his death in 1956, it was Jones’ expressed wish to see that Houston had a new opera house. Jones Hall would become his lasting gift to the City.
Houston is one of the last cities where pre-sale tickets are offered. So far, the tickets for the pre-sale at other venues have been great and have sold quickly. Remember, you have to be a member of Clay’s Official Fan Club to participate in this sale. GOOD LUCK!!
We can always count on wonderful graphics from Fountaindawg. On Monday, she posted four great pictures. She paired pictures from the Timeless Tour with screen caps from American Idol, Season 2. What fun to see that “Clay is Clay” and he has moved from cute to handsome. Thank you, Fountaindawg, for these gems!!
