Ever since fans saw his pre-Idol youtube of I’ll Be, it has been a unified wish for him to perform it again – as he has for A1000Miles and Angels. Well, it was definitely Christmas in August at Rockford when he did this!

Pick of the Day – Plethora of Plaids!

click ‘plaid boy’ for bigger view

 In Tune Concert NYC January 12, 2009 When David tweeted from the UK that he was ‘into’ PLAIDS, he certainly wasn’t kidding! And while he has favoured the occasional plaid in many a public appearance in the past, it is in the current summer tour that David decided to unleash his ‘plaid fetish’ in full fervour upon us!

So here’s our ‘plaid parade’ of his snazzy collection – some being the doing of cool stylists or fan gifts, others personally hand-picked by our ‘plaid boy’ on his many a shopping rendezvous around the world! It almost seems like if a plaid tickled David’s fancy, he would have it in every shade available!

Anyway, no prizes for guessing which plaid he paraded where… but it would be nice to hear which is your favourite David plaid! Comment if you like!

plaid /plaed/ (noun) Chequered, crisscross or tartan pattern, outer article of Highland costume; cloth used for this. (Gaelic plaide, of unknown origin)

Pick Of The Day – Apologize

During his run on AI, people would scoff at the thought of David doing Apologize – until that infamous duet with One Republic on finale results nite. Archangels will remember THE STRUT, while detractors have to admit that he CAN be current!

But while he hardly tackled the ‘falsetto’ for that AI performance, it was pure perfection during the AI Tour – one of the faves of ‘non-fans’ …. and for us fans, it brought about the invention of the term ‘hunkerdown’!

David relived Apologize for the recent summer tour – going acoustic with new intensity, and probably a deeper ‘bonding’ with the song.

A little shaky here, accompanying himself for the first time…
