Good things come to those who wait

Beyond my excitement for David’s upcoming book, more than my extreme anticipation for the new music, comes the calm assurance that David WILL TOUR AGAIN.

Am I safe to say that David live is David in his best element? The voice above all voices … the nuances, the purity, the emotive brilliance, the changeups and runs, the between-song banter … gah, I get giddy just thinking about it. Hearing David perform live is on my life list of things I need to do on a regular basis. It is not optional anymore….

We recently came across this vid that was live-streamed from David’s 2009 Boston Jingle Ball performance (thanks, annalisasinger84!). Sit back and enjoy this mini concert in two parts, keeping in mind how far this boy has come since then!!! Note how dramatically his confidence, stage presence and energy have progressed … no, rocketed, since this pre-solo tour performance!

This only leads me to speculate that what is coming on his next tour will be DYNAMITE.

New music, energized David, performing songs that he can’t wait for us to hear…. I am sooo ready!

    Well HAPPY BIRTHDAY refnaf today the 10th? My mom and dad’s 61st anniversary.

    David sure did a great job making Touch My Hand an opening song “wonderwall of stars… your beautiful faaaaace” there was such a big change from the Idol stage to Jingle Ball re his stage presence. And it only got better and better each subsequent tour!

    I wonder what he has in store for us NEXT tour. Yep refnaf, this thought is what is keeping me going right now…

    Great audio on these vid’s btw… back to listening

    Good mornin’ SAz:

    You said it all ref.

    And what astounds me most is…more good things are yet to come….and….this is ONLY the BEGINNING.

    How’d we get to be so lucky??!!!

    Is today your BD ref? Happy Birthday to you…and many more, if so. 😀

    Birthday Babies

    A big Happy Birthday to you, Ref!!!! ♥♥♥

    Love this, “Hearing David perform live is on my life list of things I need to do on a regular basis. It is not optional anymore…” You are soooo right.

    I hope you’re also right about “Good things come to those who wait.”

    It is really something to watch his early performances and compare them to the CFTH tour, esp. how at ease he’s become with chatting with the audience.

    And the first couple of solo shows where he performed ZG clinging to the mike stand throughout the song then just a few shows later was bounding about the stage like a ping pong ball. Remarkable.

    Happy Birthday Ref!!!!!
    “Hearing David perform live – not optional”

    So right.
    I can’t believe that I waited so long. Of course I wanted to see him long before I did.
    But once I did, I saw him three more times.
    You just have to. 🙂

    Happy Belated Birthday Refnaf!

    “Hearing David perform live is on my life list of things I need to do on a regular basis. It is not optional anymore…”

    I have to concur with this, I really thought once I saw him live this ODD would take a more normal shape, whatever that is, wrong! It has taken a life of it’s own…lol

    Thank you Refnaf! But how long are we going to have to wait?!

    And for Tofan and all you snowanglez I haved edited my vlog mashup. I too have a favorite Toronto clip, somehow missed it when putting the clips together. Here it is.

    Happy Birthday (belated?) Refnaf!!!!

  7. refnaf says:

    Hey!!! Thanks for the birthday wishes (((awestruck, kizzi, TOfan, betsy, dja, Lorna))) and it is not belated, it is today, lol.

    Dja! You added the TO clip!!! Yay. David’s only time in TO just needs to be there , Thank you.

    As for when this tour will be?? rrrrr. I have decided that I can not wait that long… life is short, so I booked a flight to UTAH!!!!! Whatever he is singing at that book singing I will be there to hear it. I am stunning myself, but going with the flow…. please don’t commit me, but I do feel a little crazy, haha.

  8. Angelica says:

    Happy Birthday Refnaf! Wow! 😯 You booked a flight to Utah? Have fun, hon! I read on another site that singing had been pulled from the advertisement for the Utah book signings. Hope that’s not the case.

    Yes the next tour is beyond my ability to imagine. All I know is, he always exceeds expectations.

  9. Abrra says:

    Happy Birthday to one of my fav baby sistahs! I am looking forward to spending time on tour with you and your Canadian troupe!

    How about posting a pic of you and the grandson? Is he driving yet?? 😉


  10. awestruck says:

    ok, so you know how David tweets to promote friends new albums… Carly Smithson tweeted David back “you in ny today” I just left Sirius/xm and they said ur coming in to do an interview?

    SO, maybe he will also be launching his new single sometime this week – Z100 maybe ?!?!?!?! Can you tell I am a wee bit anxious?

  11. yjfanofdavid says:

    I hope you’re having a wonderful day!

  16. awestruck says:

    refnaf – good news. Snarky’s is reporting that David will sing… the publisher just asked that the mention of the performance be removed from the book signing ad to put the emphasis on the book.

  17. bluebar says:

    Happy Birthday, Refnaf!

    Family, friends and a flight scheduled for UTAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!

    A little late to the party…
    Refnaf, I hope your day was filled with joy and laughter! 🙂 HAPPY BIRTHDAY to a loverly lady who makes this David journey such a pleasure to be a part of!

  21. refnaf says:

    (((Angelic, Abrra, YJF, abanana, silverfox, bluebar, AF4life, KT, Archangel48))) Thanks for the birthday greetings. I had a great day…. a lovely dinner out, and a vlog from David!!!
    We are just a few weeks away from new music…. I hope that he gets everything he wants on this album. I think it must be crunch time… I think about all the gems that won’t make it and want to **cry** I need to practice the old mantra “Trust the Archulator”

  22. TOfan says:

    Looks like is also suffering the effects of the ArchuDrought. They just posted this today:

    Alright, alright. So we know this is an old commercial, but when we came across it online we HAD to post it. The first commercial you’ll see in the video shows David Cook promoting the Guitar Hero video game while if you watch a little longer you’ll see David Archuleta’s commercial.

    Out of the two ads, which David’s commercial do you like best? Sorry Cook fans, we have to go with our favorite Archie!

  23. bebereader says:

    Refnaf: The David in those Jingle Ball videos is barely recognizable to the performer he’s now become. I think we’re going to have to buckle up for this next tour!

    Okay, NOW it’s officially okay to say “Happy Belated Birthday” to you, my snowangel friend! However you spent it, hope you had a grand ole’ time!

  24. refnaf says:

    Thanks ((((bebebebebebe))))
