Seems to be starting late tonight - it's already 8:15, and the crowd is getting restless.

Floor sold out. Several rows in the upper levels are filled.

Orchestra members are dressed in casual clothes !!

The venue allows phones and camera...as long as no flash

Faye is there..venue set up for about 2500 or so

The woman announcing the concert called him "Clay Atkin". Maybe he's assumed an alias to avoid those child support payments. :P

Terrific sound on the CV stream tonight. The orchestra is the same group as last night, and the conductor mentioned that Clay is a great singer and very funny. Well, duh!

So far , the orchestra is doing the same program as last night: starting with selections from The Nutcracker.

I believe they did, but I couldn't tell you exactly what is was - something like the Edward Porter Orchestra? It was a man's name anyway.

Now they are doing the selections from Vivaldi - The Four Seasons.

I actually meant to skip the concert tonight, but the sound on the cellstream is soooo good, I just can't bring myself to turn it off.

Onto the Christmas selections - What Child is This.

The conductor told a short story about rehearsal this afternoon. One of the musicians asked Clay if she could get her picture taken with him. Clay said "Sure", and according to the conductor, a bunch of the orchestra members lined up like children to get their's taken too. Hee. Guess they like the guy.

hey ya'll..... no Clay yet I see.

No, the orchestra got started about 15 minutes late, so I think Clay's start time will get pushed back as well.

Earlier, the CV cellcerter commented on the mix of the audience - many men, and lots of what to appear to be first-timers.

Per the cellcerter, it looks like Faye is currently being interviewed by a local TV station - cameras and lights. The camera crew had interviewed a small group of teen girls earlier.

Hey, guys! Not sure I'll be able to join you for long. Alex's play is tonight again and we'll be leaving here in about an hour...I'm not surprised there are lots of men---it's in Norfolk, right? Big military presence here---Norfolk, Newport News...I LOVE that there are a lot of first timers, don't you? AND even after a local paper made a point of all the negative press Clay's gotten lately, naming the Ripagate crap, Rosie's 'outing' of him and the botched note on the first night!

hee!

Just wait...he'll blow them all away.

(ps. I'm posting Chapter 5 now...I know you all will be busy for quite a while but just wanted to let you know...)

From CB:

Faye is in the first row 2nite and CV cellcerter is saying she's surrounded by a TV station??!!!! Cameras and reporters and stuff! OMG!

THERE IS A TV STATION THERE INTERVIEWING FAYE!

I think CV cellcerter is saying that Faye is being interviewed by a television crew????

Cellcerter said there are more men present then she has seen at any other concerts. She can't tell how full the venue is due to it being intermission. The conductor actually thanked the audience for their patience at the end of their set. Do you think maybe he knows who the crowd is for?

Fay is now being interviewed for what seems like a tv station.

appy talked to mary told her not tell clay not to hold back just because mamma was here..faye signed an autograph for someone on a norfork paper and it was a terrible article..:yow jerome is walking around on stage with a Clay Aiken sweat shirt on..

orchestra coming out..same orchestra as last night ..

he lights have gone down and our man is waiting in the wings....

ROOM HOLDS 2500......

they are clapping..for clay..he isn't on yet..jesse is on..

Based on the reception to CW, sounds like there are some screamers there. Hoepfully they restrict it to between the songs.

TFN.

from CB:

TFN is over - nice cheers and screams from the audience.

Maybe I'll have one of you come up here and hold the microphone -- I was just joking.

Wishing the crowd Merry Christmas....banter has started and so has the laughing and cheering.....can't understand a word of it....very fuzzy...hope someone else is getting a clear cellcert!

Clay said the mic stand won't go down...gonna stand on his toes.

Having one of those days, weeks years...bus broke down...now th mic...I ain't that tall.....maybe one of you will come up here and hold the mic....just kidding!! Sooooo funny!!!

...ENDS TFN WITH A NICE LITTLE FLOURISH...

STARTING THE BANTER.....MIC STAND WON'T GO DOWN....

IT'S BEEN A STRANGE LAST FEW DAYS FOR THEM...BUS BROKE DOWN...E

Apparently A'h have a love child somewhere in Charlotte with a girl A'h never met...think he said story of m'ah life...LOL

Still having mic troubles...Ooooooo now he has two mics...

National Enquirer...."apparently i have a love child"

We're going to have a GOOD holiday season tonight!

Chatting about the tour going well.....and how's he happy to be out with the tour over the Holidays....

Complaining about the microphones!!! Using the wrong one?!

Now he has two - he can use either one!

CROWD IS HYSTERICAL!!!!

Banter started. He seems to be having problems adjusting the microphone stand. Started talking about having a bad week - mentioned broken down bus. Got distracted with mic stand - said maybe he'd have one of you (audience members) come up and hold it for him - just kidding he says!

Now talking about being controversy king. It's been a few weeks since we've had a scandal - next issue of Nat'l Enquirer will have a story about a "love child" of mine by a woman I've never met!

We've had a great time with this show over the last week or so.

Still having problems with microphones - has two, unclear which he is supposed to use. "We're all family here, right? Give us a minute to figure this out." He's testing different mics. Says "I hope you heard that first song - not sure if that mic even worked!"

he better be careful...he's being mean <rolls eyes out of head>

That's right - we need to add "Snide" to the list of failings: old, fat. bald, poorly groomed, deadbeat dad, and snide. :P

MCWL. I think the cellstream might have used up all it's good mojo on the first half - it's getting a bit crackly for me.

Third row binoculars - She's checking out his highlights. He's worried about his grey hair. She got her's done yesterday. So did Clay's mama in the front row. Older brother Jeff.

Trying to do the husband banter, but the guy is there voluntarily. AI voting schtick.... buffering.
