For Clay Aiken fans small news alerts popped up on Thursday.
The Clay Aiken Official Fan Club announced that the venue for the San Francisco, Tried and True concert was changed. The concert on March 12th will now be held at the Warfield Theater. The Warfield holds 2,250 people and is a much larger venue than the Regency Ballroom that only holds about 650 people.
Built in the early 20’s, the world famous Warfield is one of the last palace theaters in San Francisco. The interior is movie palace ornate. The lobby features marble, gilt and chandeliers and opens to a grand staircase to the balcony.
All of the big names in entertainment played on The Warfield’s stage, including Al Jolson, Louis Armstrong, and Charlie Chaplin. In the 80’s, the Warfield hosted the Grateful Dead, U2, Prince, and many others. Today, it is the home for the top musical acts in the pop field.
Closed for renovations during the summer of 2008, this two-tiered and magnificently ornate old theater reopened in the fall of 2009 and continues to be a jewel set in the center of the city’s downtown crown. It is within walking distance of Union Square and close to a Bart (subway) station.
CultureMap is a web page that is based in Houston, Texas. It highlights the cultural scene of the area. On September 30th, they posted an article about Clay Aiken and Tony Bennett. Writer, Steven Thomson wrote the article and said of Clay:
Two big boys of soul who are seldom (if ever) linked together, Clay Aiken and Tony Bennett, are slated to land at the Houston Symphony in 2011.
Fans of classic tunes from the 1950s and 1960s will relish Aiken‘s personal renditions of his favorite songs from the era, featured on his fifth studio album and showcased on his “Tried and True” United States tour. The slew of live mid-century love songs couldn’t be better timed, as the former American Idol runner-up will serenade his audience at Jones Hall on Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14.
