Clay Aiken – Happy Anniversary, Tried & True

Do you remember what you were doing on March 12th, 2010?  For many Clay Aiken fans, this date will bring back memories of the taping of the PBS special at the Raleigh Memorial Auditorium.  The concert, lovingly called the “OMG” Concert was the beginning of a year of wonderful live music, a new CD and DVD and many PBS specials on TV.

It is hard to believe that today, the first anniversary of this concert, is also the last performance of the Tried & True Tour. The last concert, presented at the Warfield Theatre in San Francisco, will be a night of celebration, colored with a bit of sadness. Fans don’t want to see this wonderful tour come to an end.  It will be another night of great music, wonderful comedy and lots of love!

I was lucky enough to attend the “OMG” concert last year.  I looked up what I wrote last year about the concert and thought I would share it with you.

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 vocalists 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.

I will be attending the concert in San Francisco tonight and can’t wait to see the performance and share the experience with all of you!!
