Clay Aiken: Tried & True LIVE!
PBS Special Opens in 30 Markets
The Clay Aiken: Tried & True ~ LIVE! PBS special kicks off coast to coast in 30 markets, 12 on Saturday, July 31, and 18 more on Sunday, Aug. 1.
In many cases, the telecast coincides with the public television's fall pledge drives. Supporters will be able to donate to their local station and receive the Tried & True CD, Tried & True LIVE DVD, or both.
Released commercially on July 27, the DVD is already the talk of Clay Cyberspace. As soon as the DVD of Clay's special March concert of Tried & True songs arrived in mailboxes, fans shared screen caps and scans of the DVD art. They are included below.
