  1. This was one tour that I didn’t see at all – I am so sorry about that.! Made plans to go but it never worked out. I have enjoyed all of the videos and pictures over the years and I am glad about that. Thank you for this video and pics. Loved Clay talking about Ruben and how they became such wonderful friends! Clay and Ruben should write a book about their story and memories!

  2. Thank you for the pictures, info and video. Pictures are great. The video has beautiful music by Clay and Ruben. The video did make me smile. Thank you CANN.

  3. I love these two guys are together: whether it entertaining, interviews, or just kidding around! This part of the tour was my favorite! Clay has the dance moves that made the audience scream! Thank you, CANN for sharing!

    • Thanks for stopping by. I love seeing Clay and Ruben performing together. I hope we will see more!
