Pittsburgh, Cleveland Interviews

Clay Previews Upcoming Shows

Every concert on Clay Aiken's current Tried & True Tour inspires audience accolades topping previous performances, and Knoxville was no different.

Paired with video recaps from Thursday night's performance at the Bijou Theatre in East Tennessee are outstanding interviews of the singer by media personnel along the tour route.

An excellent example is Dee Perry's Around Noon radio conversation in conjunction with Saturday's show in the PlayhouseSquare Palace Theatre in Cleveland.

For tonight's concert in Pittsburgh, Patricia Sheridan interviewed Clay on radio and made the dialogue available as a podcast and in print version with the Post-Gazette: Patricia Sheridan's Breakfast ... with Clay Aiken. Here is a Sendspace download of the podcast.

The Pittsburgh Tribune Review also published an interesting preview for the concert: Clay Aiken believes the music should be about the singer.

Below are this weekend's T&T Concerts:

2.18.11 Pittsburgh, PA Carnegie Music Hall, 8 pm
2.19.11 Cleveland, OH Playhouse Square, 7:30 pm
2.20.11 Waterbury, CT Palace Theater, 7:30 pm

Thanks to the clack gatherers, previous concerts are just a click away. Not only do they render/upload videos after a performance, many process the latest while waiting to catch flights home or to the next concert.

Below are three styles of "Who's Sorry Now" from the Knoxville Concert as suggested by the audience: bossa nova, disco, and Cajun.

Clay & Co. perform 'Who's Sorry Now' bossa nova style.

Enjoy all your blogs. Clay has certainly had some interesting interviews lately. Very respectful to him also. Glad to see he deserves it.

Wow! That Disco WSN Video is really HAWT. And, he says he can't dance. Looks like he has some very good moves to me.

I saw Clay in Westbury, Long Island, NY. It was the second time I have seen Clay in concert. I can't tell you how much I love him and I'm not sure why, but I have been hooked since Idol. He has a kind soul besides a great vocalist. My husband is now also hooked. He was fantastic, but I think he had a cold. I wish they give him a talk show.
