Evidently, the Hampton Inn near the concert tonight has been overrun by Clay fans and the motel is all about Clay! The staff is making all the fans feel welcome...

Hee Clayfans overrunning a hotel??? We saw a lot of that in CA...I think it was most obvious in Pala.

I am feeling slightly lost today...I think I still have jetlag and being away from the net for such a long time will do it.

CARY, N.C. -- The outdoor concert season's well underway, but with triple digit temperatures, the weather is not being easy on fans.

Spending just a few minutes outside has been rough this week. And to go all day, you'd better have a good reason.

"The main reason we're here is for Clay," said David Strickland, who got in line around 9AM. "It's worth the wait and the heat."

Clay Aiken fans hoping to catch his show at the Koka Booth Amphitheater Friday night sweated it out through the worst of it. Most seemed prepared for the grueling wait.

"Trying to get cold drinks, going back and forth to the car, using the umbrellas," said Samantha Lee.

One young fan figured out the heat meant he had a lot of potential customers, so John Bunzey was selling lemonade to benefit the Bubel Aiken Foundation.

"I raise the money for kids with disabilities because I know how it feels," said Bunzey through sign language.

Organizers know what they're dealing with during an outdoor concert in the middle of the dog days of summer, and say they do what they can to help fans.

"We're going to have a misting tent available for people, we've stocked up plenty of water, we're allowing people to bring their umbrellas in, and of course we've got a lot of good shade trees," said Lyman Collins, the town of Cary's Cultural Arts Manager.

A medical tent's at the ready if need be, but organizers say if people keep chugging water, they should be OK.

M&G report from shewren:

Clay wore a long-sleeved shirt under a polo shirt.

Favorite part of Afghanistan - a young boy outside the hotel selling gum - Clay wanted to put him in his bag and bring him home. Awww...

One of the M&Ger's didn't like having her picture taken, so she and Clay turned their backs to the camera. Hee.

ETA: from a faster typer than me -

he is just so wonderful. talks nonstop. in AC place. long sleeved shirt w/undershirt. his dressing rooms were hot, he said, much hotter than here. lot of people had questions. asked what fav part of Afghanistan. young boy who sold gum every single day. he was discourgaed from buying it by UNICEF staff. told him that the boy would expect every UNICEF worker to do it. cutest kid and he wanted to put him in his bag and bring him home. Clay gave him $50 bill. boy would not take the money without Clay taking the gum. 2 women from No. VA. Mother/daughter. Mom had a stroke and in a wheelchair. Younger than 50. She asked him for the picture with her standing up, and without her cane in the pic. He held her up fro the pic. One person did not like her picture being made. So Clay turned them both around and they took the pic of their backs !!

would he either give up his favourite food forever or TV gor 2 years. He would probably give up his fav food, because there is al ot of other fav foods he likes !!

Good-ness. He's the only guy I know that would be COLD on a day like today. (Well, except for my dad, who wore undershirts year round....)

That's cool. I'd actually love to see that M&G picture. His back is soooooooooo nice.

There does seem to be a bus - so maybe there be a line.

Clay's grandpa is down in front.

Weather may be changing a bit - possible rain blowing in?

Tables are full, lawn is packed, some inconsistent checking for cameras, but many got in.

You don't need a bus for the line anymore! You just need a basketball court! <obsure San Diego reference...>

Clay's grandpa is down in front.

That's sweet, but I hope he can handle the heat!
