It is Tuesday and Clay Aiken is in the middle of his vacation from public life. Clay certainly deserves some time away from the maddening crowds, but he is missed by his fans. Because of the absence of current news about Clay, todays post is a bit eclectic. Hopefully, you will find it interesting!
The Internet site, Starpulse.com posted a set of pictures of Clay Aiken and Arsenio Hall. The pictures were taken on May 18, 2012 when Clay and Arsenio visited the NBC Experience Store at Rockefeller Center. It was a great couple of hours for fans to see the Celebrity Apprentice Finalists who autographed pictures and had their pictures taken with hundreds of fans that attended the event.
Be sure and look at all the pictures. There are lots of them and each one is great. A big “thank – you” to the photographer, Paul Froggatt. You can see the pictures at STARPULSE
Yes…this blog is about Clay Aiken, but sometimes you see something that needs to be shared. Is it related to Clay? Well…it is singing and I would assume that Clay would enjoy seeing these talented young men as they surprise the audience with their talent and passion. The following is the message that I received from my friend who sent me this video:
SFGate is a section of the San Francisco Chronicle. Yesterday, they published an interesting article about Concert Films. The author, Michael Ordona suggested that even though music sales were declining, music movies for the big screen are growing in popularity.
Justin Bieber’s concert movie, “Never Say Never” is the all-time top grosser domestically with $73 million. Michael Jackson’s “This Is It” easily beat it worldwide with an amazing $261 million.
The music films usually combine tour performances with backstage footage, interviews and shots of the audience members. Katy Perry and Neil Young will both be releasing Music Movies in July and they are both expected to do very well.
Ordona suggests that these movies are popular, in part, because of the economy. The average ticket price for a live concert at this time is $60, but movie are only about a quarter of the price.

Have you ever seen a Concert Film? Do you think that these films will continue to be popular? Would you choose to see the movie instead of going to a live concert?
