It was good to see some exciting movement happening at Clay Aiken’s Official Fan Club on Tuesday. Since the OFC moved its location, many fans have been a bit lost over there and it has been very quiet on the site.
On Tuesday, the fans were treated to a blog from Clay Aiken. Clay didn’t have any breaking news to share, he just blogged to keep in touch with his fans. Clay calls it a “stream of consciousness” blog. To most of Clay’s fans, the content of the blog is not so important. It’s always fun to read a blog from Clay. Whatever Clay says isn’t as important as realizing that he is thinking of us…and that feels really good!!
In the news section of the OFC came the announcement of an exciting concert by Clay in Chicago. Although many fans already knew about this concert, it was nice to read some details of the concert.
The Park West in Chicago is the venue for the October 14th concert. The Park West is a popular concert venue and nightclub located at 322 West Armitage in Lincoln Park. It originally opened in 1925 as the Park Lane Vaudeville Theater, and then it was a movie theater for several decades until it was renovated into the Park West in the 1970’s. It’s a great place to see a show because of its intimate setting, tiered seating, and clubby atmosphere. There’s arguably not a bad seat in the house.
According to the announcement at the OFC, Clay will sing his chart topping hits as well as songs from Tried and True. It’s a good chance to hear Clay in an intimate setting and support WTTW, the Chicago public television station. It’s a win-win event and all in one night!
While we are speaking of Clay’s Official Fan Club, I want to take a moment to commend Clayitagain, a longtime fan of Clay. She was concerned about the lack of posting at the Fan Club so she started a new place to post and went around to many of the private Clay boards to encourage the members to come and chat at the OFC. Because of her tenacity, the thread is active and fans have returned to the site. Thank-you, Clayitagain.
