Clay Aiken – “Affable, Pleasant, and Charming”

I wonder what it is like to travel for almost 18 hours on a tour bus.  Google maps says the trip from Milwaukee to Beaver Creek, Colorado is 1,145 miles.  Now that’s  a long trip!  I hope they had some good movies on the bus!

Those who will be attending the Joyful Noise Concert starring Clay Aiken had better have warm jackets and snow boots.  The weather is not so nice.  According to weather forecast, there is a real snowstorm going on:

Tuesday
Snow
High: 24 to 28°F
Low: 08 to 12°F
Snow likely. Cloudy, with a high near 27.  SW wind around 15 mph, with gusts as high as 25 mph. Chance of precipitation is 70%.  New snow accumulation of 2 to 4 inches possible.
Now, remember…I live in California!  That is cold to me.  But I bet it will be beautiful and the snow will make it seem very much like Christmas!
As the bus was making its way to Beaver Creek, the entertainment news sites were busy putting every spin they could imagine on an answer Clay gave in an interview.  It’s always fun to see Clay’s name in the news and I find it rather amusing to see that 98% of the articles are positive, but there are those who try to make a simple answer something more than it is.   When Clay makes a comment on American Idol, it is posted everywhere!   I guess if you want hits on your site, mention Clay Aiken.

The Phoenix New Times published an article about The Joyful Noise Tour stop in Phoenix, Arizona.
Phoenix New Times
Clay Aiken on Christmas, American Idol, and Donald Trump
by Jason P. Woodbury
At one point during our early morning interview, singer and performer Clay Aiken yawned.
It was a deep, expressive yawn. He did not ask to be excused, but he didn’t need to: Aiken is among the most affable, pleasant, and charming interviews I’ve ever enjoyed. Plus, the guy has every reason to be worn out. The former “American Idol” has been making his way across the nation on his “Joyful Noise 2012” tour, belting out selections and standards from his Christmas recordings, Merry Christmas with Love and All Is Well: Songs for Christmas. It’s a lot of work, and Aiken notes: “This is my fifth year doing it, and if we count all the times that I’ve done this show you’re up into the hundreds, you know?”…
Do you listen to music on the bus to wind down after shows?I haven’t listened to a thing lately. When I’m on tour, we’re on a bus, and we don’t listen to the radio. We put the TV on. We put reruns of The Closer on or something. I would be the worst person to ask about current musical trends….
This is a great article so be sure are visit the site and read the entire 2 page interview.  The hits are important for the site.  You can read the entire article at  PHOENIX

  1. Thanks for the great pictures. Love them all. I live seeing articles about Clay. He’s always an interesting interview.

  2. OMG! That is a lot of miles to go to Beaver Creek, Colorado. Hope they left right away because as you pointed out..the weather isn't too good. Isn't that a Ski Resort kind of place? Bet, it will be beautiful and Christmasy with all that snow. I live in Florida..so really never see any snow. But, I lived in Michigan for most of my life..so, I think I have seen enough of the white stuff.

    Love the pictures. I just had to change my screensaver to one of the new ones I found from Milwaukee. What a handsome man. Also, I love the articles. Clay is affable, pleasant and charming. Nice articles. As far as the articles about AI..I so agree. I only read the nice ones though.

  8. The pictures of the venue for tonight look beautiful. The snow and Christmas songs should put anyone attending into the Christmas spirit. I loved the Phoenix article and thanks for posting the other articles also. I love all the pictures of Clay , but I think I like #1 just a little more than the others. He takes such good pictures, it is always hard to choose. Clay will be heading to warm Arizona next. What a change that will be from tonight for him. I hate to see this tour end. I love his Christmas shows so much!
