This Week in Archuworld

Archuworld took a break last week (TDCers were evidently too exhausted from their excitement at seeing David in such an intimate setting in NYC), so here’s a two-week edition. Good Works & Cool Concerts David started the week with an appearance at the Utah MS Foundation to present a $50,000 check from the Credit Union. Read about it in the Salt Lake Tribune. Utah Fox 13 did a nice TV interview about the event. Note that he wore the orange Crush MS bracelet that was mentioned in an earlier TDC article, Giving Back, Crush MS. David sang Happy Birthday to Cindy Hales after the MS event. She turned 50, according to Brett. You can download the mp3 of birthday song here. Concerts seem to be on David’s list of things to do while he is home relaxing in between tours. Regarding a No Doubt concert, he posted these via Twitter: Gonna watch the Paramore and No Doubt concert tonight. Should be fun!5:30 PM May 25th from txt My ears are still ringing from how loud it was at the arena haha. But going to bed now, so good night!about 21 hours ago from txtGot back from the concert.

Full Circle

Being the crazy ODD Idol fan that I am, the recent season 8 finale got me thinking about what has transpired in the life and career of David Archuleta since that fateful night, almost a year ago, when he came in second to David Cook during the 7th season of American Idol. Performances and appearances number in the hundreds since then, and there have been a number of moments that have been game changers. AI Tour Summer 2008 This annual tour takes the finalists across America. Since David had already signed a record contract, not only was he touring,...

This Week in ArchuWorld

A Week of Promos, Concerts, and Mangoes: UK Tour Ends, Arrival in Manila! This past week’s activities included concerts and promotions on two sides of the world. During the early part of this week, David completed his successful run as McFly’s opening act in Britain. From all accounts, David made a positive impression on McFly, McFly’s fans, and some British bloggers. “Femalefirst,” a British lifestyle blog for women, reported on May 11 that “Archuleta put on an impressive performance, showing no signs of any stage fright or shyness. The man who won over 42 million votes in American Idol clearly knows he has a talent, and shows it off well.” Meanwhile, anticipation built for the David Archuleta/David Cook concert in Manila on Saturday, May 16. David arrived in the Philippines on May 12. The local media reported that both were mobbed at the airport: David subsequently posted a message to Twitter upon his arrival: “Arrived safely in the Philippines! Crazy at the airport! lots of cameras lol. I saw all the fans outside and banners! Thanks you guys!! We had a layover in Doha, Qatar. Never thought I’d ever go there or in the Middle East. Would’ve liked to wander, but maybe another time.” David’s promotional schedule has been packed since his arrival in Manila. According to his Twitter messages, he had dinner with Cook and Sony Asia representatives...

This Week In ArchuWorld

David’s week began with Twittering, included sightseeing, Twittering, concerts, and ended with more Twittering! David performed three back-to-back concerts in Ipswich, Croydon, and Oxford, this week after slaying the crowds in London and Southend last weekend. It is evident that David continues to expand his performance skills and loosen up, and as he noted in this week’s blog, I always wonder what people must be thinking watching me move lol, but I think the less you’re concerned about how strange people must think you look up on stage, the more you can just let go and get into the song. I’m trying to let myself get into that mind set more, and it’s been working :). Back home in the states, David’s appearance on Hannah Montana and their ‘duet’ aired on Sunday night to great ratings. Although the song premiered on Disney Radio to fans who were disappointed that David’s solo parts were removed, David helped Hannah Montana beat the Jonas Brother’s debut that same night, forcing many to admit, David Archuleta is greater than all boy bands. David continued his Twitter obsession and there were a few tweets that almost caused the late night TDC’ers to crash their computers, but we probably should let you look those up yourselves. He also shared some cute moments with his pal Jordin Sparks as they both Twittered about a ‘conference call’...

This Week in ArchuWorld

The week began with David finishing up his promotional tour of Asia.  The buzz he created continues …and continues… and continues. David gave a candid interview to The Star, at the Pyramid Tower Hotel, and discussed his second-place finish on American Idol, his vocal paralysis, and touring.  He doesn’t think fame will change him, and says  he’ll never abandon music.  His usual self-deprecation was in evidence, too: “I never shut up … I’m weird looking.” Two big stories dominated the latter part of the week in ArchuWorld: Rumors of a tour with Demi Lovato, and a return to the American Idol stage.  Fans are split on the news of the tour, and the split sparked debate all over the web, including here at The David Chronicles, where a number of our regular columnists chimed in with their opinions. David’s IDF section generated more than 200 pages on the subject since it was first rumored on April 10th. Fans and other observers at mjsbigblog’s comment thread debated the decision as well. David’s American Idol appearance means that he will miss the first two shows of the UK McFly Tour, where he is scheduled to appear as the opening act.  They explain it quite nicely on their MySpace site. The Demi Lovato tour rumors were confirmed, and tour dates were posted. Random bits of adorkableness: A fan in Malaysia feeds him...

This Week in ArchuWorld

Archuworld was focused on the East this week, and it was unclear who was happier about David’s first Asian tour — the fans in Singapore and Malaysia, or David himself. With a combination of equal parts excitement and calm that can only be David, he reported in a video blog how he loves rain and humidity, and didn’t need to set the fire alarms off by steaming up his hotel room with the shower in order to soothe his vocal chords. David was actually quite the communicator this week. He posted pictures and numerous Twitter-style updates on the Malaysia-based mobile media broadcasting service, Pacmee, and blogged about the weather, Chap Stick, malls, the Utah concert (with thanks to his opening acts), plus a song of the day — he covers all the bases! The Malaysian fans gave David a Beatles-style welcome, and the airport pandemonium made it all the way to Z100’s Elvis Duran show. Perez Hilton also gets in on the hype. One of the most David stories of the week came by way of a cleaning woman who David encountered in the bathroom of a school he visited in Malaysia. According to the admiring reports of the maintenance worker, David extended his hand, introduced himself, and complimented her on keeping the school so clean… That’s our David.
