Clay Aiken – Turn On The Lights!

Tuesday night, Clay Aiken performed at the Kraushaar Auditorium, a small concert hall that is on the campus of Goucher College in Baltimore, Maryland.

Clay’s voice soared as he entertained the audience by singing songs from his latest album, Tried & True.

The concert was a combination of professional entertainment combined with some difficulties with some of the staging.  Clay let the audience know that there were some serious problems with the lighting.  It seems there was never a spotlight on any of the entertainers on stage.  However, a few members of the audience were in the spotlight much of the concert.

Clay made a point of staying towards the front of the stage so that the audience could see him in spite of the huge monitors at the front of the stage.  He explained that by doing that he could not hear through his earpiece so everyone should just relax.

It is always fun to read what some fans comment about the concert:

  • The show was like seeing an old friend.  Clay was wonderful.
  • Clay was adorable and yummy in plum…and very clean-shaven.
  • Clay had the crowd licking the backs of their hands and smelling it as a way to see if they had bad breath!
  • They are so 21st century….now if only they could get spotlights!
  • He bought a Yoshi Blade so he could see how he could cut up an apple!
  • WOW!  I can’t wait to play that audio over and over.  Ben was awesome!
  • Ragtime…Ben is amazing!!
  • Sounds like Clay was in a great mood and in great voice!!

There are some wonderful pictures from the Baltimore concert.  Although there was so much trouble with the lighting, these pictures are amazing.

  1. Glad the concert went well. Leave it to Clay to make it work, lighting issues or not. 🙂

    Those pictures are wonderful. He is looking so hot this tour!

  2. What nice pics to wake up to. Gorgeous. Last nights show sounds great. I wish I had more shows, unfortunately I saw both of mine the first week of the tour. It sure is good to be able to read about them and see the clack.

  3. Thanks for posting these absolutely beautiful pics of Clay. Sounds like it was a great evening even though the lighting wasn't quite right. Clay always seems to overcome anything that is thrown at him. He always makes lemonade out of lemons…. From reports, it also sounds like his voice just soared…. Clay just keeps getting better and better….. I'm so glad to hear everyone had a wonderful time, and want to go to more…He does that to you!!!!!!

  4. The problem with the lighting turned into a plus for all of us at the concert. Clay stepped to the front of the stage and the evening was magic. All the musicians and Clay interacted directly with the audience and we had so much fun! His voice is incredible. It was a bit like The Actor's Studio but how often does that happen? I felt so fortunate to be present, to feel as if I met all the musicians on stage and listen to his fantastic voice. BTW – the two ladies in the spotlight, hi Leslie and Nancy , had a blast interacting directly with Clay. Thanks, Clay for a very fun evening.

  5. What gorgeous pictures–works of art!! But, not surprising when you consider the subject–Clay Aiken IS a work of art.
    Love how Clay can take technical difficulties and just make them part of the fun.
    Thanks so much for getting these pictures up so fast.
    Have already listened to the audio of this concert and it's as beautiful to hear as the pictures are to see.

  6. I really love these pictures. Thanks to the photographers. AND, thank you, CANN for keeping everything up to date here. It makes it so nice to know I can keep up with Clay right here.

  7. Farouche is such a great photographer. Thank you for posting the pictures and thanks for your daily report. This is an amazing tour for Clay and for his fans.

    Thank you, Clay…..for being you.

  8. It looks like every one of his shows keep getting better. I even think there are more people attending now. Word of mouth works every time. Thanks for those pictures…they are very nice..per usual. Lol!
