Clay Aiken - Jukebox Tour

The Jukebox Tour is the must-see show of the season! Let me tell you what, this was a great show. I had awesome seats, the energy of the crowd was very high, and there were no picture restrictions! Oh, and Clay was fabulous, too. Clay made his mark by singing covers on American Idol, so he just went for it on this tour and sings about 95% cover tunes, including the full-length version of some his best performances on AI. His renditions of Solitaire and Unchained Melody were so good, they defy description.
There were a couple highlights of the show for me: he sang Mandy by Barry Manilow; right after that, he asked for some events of the '70s andI told him that my parents named for that song (yes, he answered back with some sass that he wasn't actually talking to me!); and at the very end of the concert, he said that we were going to play Stump the Band, and he took my friend Scott's suggestion for Bohemian Rhapsody. Scott and Clay are new best friends now.
I must mention Clay's back-up singers, Angela and Quiana. These girls are so good. I mean seriously good. They each sang a song or two by themselves, and one of the absolute best parts of the conert was Quiana's version of "I Will Always Love You." Watch out, Whitney.
If you like Clay, you will love this concert tour. If you don't like Clay, you'd probably be entertained anyway, so go - but don't buy the thong at the merchandise counter.

It's true, Clay and I are very close since we talked last night. I would even consider buying the thong, but never wearing it of course.
