Back in 1998, the radio station KIIS-FM in Los Angeles produced a new concert called Wango Tango.  Little did they know the show would continue for 22 years.  

According to Wikipedia the event is an annual day-long concert that features several marquee performers.  The event has been hosted by Ryan Seacrest and is now considered one of Los Angeles’s “must-see” events.

According to

Over the years, the iconic 102.7 KIIS FM’s Wango Tango has evolved into iHeartRadio’s national kick-off to summer music celebration.

On May 15, 2004, Clay Aiken was one of the marquee performers for the concert.  The concert was held at the Pasadena Rose Bowl.  Along with his back-up singers and musicians, Clay sang five songs:

  1.  Solitaire
  2. Perfect Day
  3. I Survived You
  4. The Way
  5. Invisible

This concert was exciting and the huge audience seemed to enjoy Clay’s performance.

This week, it was announced this popular concert that was scheduled to be on June 6th  is cancelled due to the Coronavirus.

It is fun that there are videos of this concert.  They are difficult to see but the music is great.  The second video is an interview with Clay and  Ryan Seacrest.  They chatted about the show.

  1. Remember watching Wango Tango on TV – very exciting – especially the interview with a woman named Michelle – she won a meeting with Clay at the Wang Tango and was beyond excited! It looked like so much fun. I wonder if Clay remembers all of these special incidents the way we do. Michelle was so sweet and Clay seemed as excited for her as for himself! Clay always gave so much to his fans.

  2. Despite the video being hazy, I enjoyed the song by OMC! The interview is hilarious and sweet! I even viewed extra videos of Clay! Thank you, CANN

  3. Thank you for all the pictures and the 2 videos. I never saw the videos before. I also did not know about Wango Tango. Thank you for the memories.

  4. This video was a delightful surprise for me. I didn't know that Clay had been at Wango Tango all those years ago. I wonder if Clay ever looks back on those hectic days with the rabid fans and marvels at how much his life was changed forever.
