Clay Aiken Jukebox Tour *sniff*

This morning on The Clay Aiken News Network they are, yet again, reminding me of another Clay Aiken tour that I missed out on - The Jukebox Tour.



I have watched an immeasurable amount of clack from this tour, but I had never watched any from the Tom's River Venue, so last night I did.

The first thing I noticed is that this venue must not have been very clack friendly - it would appear that SecretlyLovesClay was filming from inside of a bag? Also, there was not a lot of video and very few photos. When you're talking Clay Aiken fans, this is just not a good sign. I also noticed that the videographers weren't exactly sure what Clay was going to do next -as the tour progressed and they became more familiar with the Songs & Medlies - the clack got better (if you ever have a chance, check out SecretlyLovesClay, Elvis Medley, Vermont).

But, as any good Clay Aiken fan will, I tried anyway - here's a montage of the 50s Medley - all video filmed at Tom's River (with thanks to Joanne, SLC, wmmah, & Deborah760 for the wonderful video & audio).



Now get ye to The Clay Aiken News Network and watch the videos over there so you can get a visual of the history of clack, Jukebox Tour Edition - you'll be glad you did!

Sue, thanks for the memories! I loved the JBT tour!!! I will never forget when Clay walked out in that leather jacket and black pants and walked down the steps. My daughter was with me and she got this huge smile on her face that stayed there the entire concert! Clay Aiken will do that to you! I would love for him to do a JBT2!

As another poor soul to not see the JBT live, the clack from it is a lifesaver. I just love it!
Love the new montage!

I was lucky enough to see this concert in Cary NC. It was wonderful and I can hardly wait for Clay Aiken's next concert series.

I saw Clay in Valdosta for the JBT. 7th row. The closest I have ever been in concert, or any other appearance, except for the handshake lines after the SRHPT. It was also the first time he did stump the band. I remember going back to the room that night and finding the picture of the giraffe taking food from Clay's mouth. Oh, to be that close to Clay's mouth. Lucky giraffe.
