UPDATE WITH VIDEO
Day 15 – Joyful Noise Tour
Arcada Theatre – St. Charles, IL
As we anxiously await the 15th concert of Clay Aiken’s Joyful Noise Tour, let’s check out what the press is saying about Clay and his music.
On Friday, Gary Graff of Billboard published an interview/article about Clay. Clay was asked about American Idol and so now the article has been picked up by so many different entertainment sites. I checked Google searches and I found it listed 25 times. I will reference the MSN site. The following are a few interesting points:

Clay Aiken: American Idol is Now All About The Judges
by Gary Graff – Billboard
After a five-year break, Clay Aiken says he was long overdue to bring a Christmas show back on the road…
… After an eventful 2012 — which in addition to “Celebrity Apprentice,” saw the release of his sixth album, “Steadfast,” and a guest appearance on Dee Snider’s “Dee Does Broadway” — Aiken says he’s eyeballing “a few things that are a little more low-key” for 2013 and is holding off most decisions until the Joyful Noise tour wraps Dec. 21 in Anaheim, Calif.
“We’ve got some producers on a TV show concept idea they want me to work on, but I don’t have time to do it right now,” Aiken notes…
…And when I was on, Ruben (Studdard) and myself and Kimberley Locke were the stars of the show. Now ‘Idol’ is about the judges. I don’t even know if they remember there are contestants anymore.”
Be sure and visit the site and read the entire article. It is well written and interesting. Click on MSN
