Madison says it so hot and humid, she thinks she might pass out....so you know what that means ladies....

Says the crowd is extremely diverse....more men than she has ever seen at a Claying.....lots of couples

Suspicious Minds.......

-----

Downtown

little rain now not as bad as earlier

-----

Big screams at Clay's bobble-heading on "Can't Buy Me Love."

-----

Sugar sugar singing to angela

-----

total dip to angela

laughed so much he could not sing a few words

-----

Some screams and appreciative giggles on "Sugar Sugar."

Cheers greeting "So Happy Together," and I think something happened to screw Clay up on the lyrics -- the crowd was laughing. The crowd cheered wildly just as the chorus kicked in!

-----

Ending this medley now!!!! Huge applause once more.

-----

Ah. During "So Happy Together," Clay totally dipped Angela, and made it look like he was making out with her. Hence, the laughter.

dipped Angela all the way back on the stairs....

Solitaire....says his hands are entwined around the mic stand.....

"Solitaire" now -- a few screams, but mostly, the crowd is listening to him.

he totally screwed up solit. messed up the words and I think he said something in the middle of the song.

-----

I think our cellcerter said that some lightning startled Clay and screwed him up in the middle of the song -- he actually had to stop the song, but then he picked up on the glory note, and he sounds incredible. The crowd is incredibly into it now.

-----

Big strip of lighting lost on the stage, distracted him, he recovered, they didn't

-----

Just goes straight for SOLITAIRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEE

HELD IT FOREVER!!!!

-----

Madison says she wishes we could see the look on his face right now......eyes are closed, very soulful......

the crowd erupts on the glory note....he's trying to outlast them....omg.................it lasted forever........

He's pouring himself into this one..........

-----

Motown

Here comes Motown......

Midnight Train To Georgia.....

Cute little pip she says

The crowd roars on the pip spin

Grooving in his routine......

Sounds like the beat just picked up on My Girl....

Everyone is dancing.......he's after Angela again....big time teasing going on between the two....

Tears of a Clown.......in his best pip style....he's too adorable for words...... MY GIRL....... taling bout my girl!

I've got so much honey, the bees envy me! (we would like to be your bee!)

He wears MOTOWN WELL!!!!

She said everyone is up on their feet......

Everyone!

He just told Angela ..."you go girl"

He just gave the mic to some woman in the front row....granny for clay aiken...not sure if that was a sign or her shirt...

He's pip shopping.....

I'm here now too - but I can't understand a word he says, although I can hear the singing very well. I did hear the cellcerter say that he stopped because lightning startled him.

Intermission report:

Cellstream reports that "he is FRISKY tonight!" Angela played with his tie, apparently, during one of the songs.

When she sang "Remember the day I set you free?" He apparently said "2 AM"?

-----

During "Solitaire," a huge bolt of lightning went off, and people in the lawn went "Oooh!" As did Clay, so he lost his place. He couldn't get back on with the band, so he said, "Eh, this is the part that matters, anyway," and launched into the glory note.

Jacob laughed when Clay made the "at 2AM" comment, and Angela giggled.

-----

Big Thunder and Bigger Lightning.....

Said the people on the lawn are still sitting there....in the thunder and lightening......

Started out saying he's "got a big book with all the hits in it, says it starts with Rock and Roll is Here To Stay and it ends with TITN!!!!!!!" He's quite proud!!

Huge flash of lightening during Solitaire and S'Von left the paino....it interrupted him and he had to recapture the moment....

He couldn't find his shoe during the Love Me Tender shoe change

Madison said it is pouring....there is a roof but the sides are open.....no center aisles...had to pick the pip from the front row...crowd really into it.....entire lower section full....lots of people standing....pouring.....poor people on lawn under umbrellas risking lightning

Says the front row is right on top of the stage.....they can spit on the stage.....

-----

She said Clay looks so HOT and that this is the best he has ever looked. She did say it is pouring down rain, but they are covered. Its the people on the lawns that have the umbrella's and that there is a sea of them.

-----

She said him and Angela are all over each other. She said he is absolutely amazing.

From CH:

Starting again. Carwash

-----

guy from crowd is dancing really getting into it

-----

HUGE cheers and Clay re-appears, singing "December 1963." He sounds wonderful, and invites the audience to cheer for David (I think that's the guy from the audience?).

"September" -- HUGE cheers as they start with the dancing.

-----

Get ready for the high kickin'

Say do you remember, crowd goes crazy with each kick

-----

Voice is pristine tonight.....

September......

Lower register is full y engaged....

Through in a funky new dance move...must be part of his newly found "funk"

-----

I think our cellcerter reported that Clay sat on Angela's lap in the beanbag chair?

"Too Much Heaven" now.

-----

Mandy

-----

"Mandy" is greeted by enormous cheers, and Clay sounds fantastic singing it. He lends it an energy that I never got from the original.

-----

Mandy very clear sounds strong and emoting.......Beautiful holding note forever

Huge applause!!

From CH:

Clay held that last beautiful "you" forever. HUGE, HUGE response as this song ends.

Introducing the 70s now. Says the next song is for "You guys out there in the rain." BOTW!

-----

beautiful end to bridge with great response from crowd

-----

OMG, that last note on BOTW!! The crowd just erupted.

Felix's turn! Getting huge response from the audience.

-----

It's amazing ....how he can do this night after night....each song better than the last....loving the big, big notes.....with his lips.....it must be somewhat like working on a chain gang for 12 hours.........

Standing "O" for BOTW.....

Here comes the preacher man...........

and here comes Our Choir Boy..........

-----

WDC sounds really good tonight!

-----

Why do we screaammmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm at each other. held that forever. don't recall him doing that long in Cary.

Now, cranking it up and the robes come off!

-----

Big screams greet the piano intro to WDC.

Some squeals and screams as Clay sings the gospel intro. Mostly at the end of phrases.

OK, someone just yelled something. No idea what, but it has some people laughing.

That extended "satisfied" drew some screams, and that prolonged "screeeeeeeam" drew many more screams and cheers.

Someone else yelled something from the crowd, "I love you, Clay!" I think?

HUGE screams as the tempo picks up. I think the cellcerter reported that he got the robe off without trouble tonight.

Angela ran away from Clay tonight -- she ran behind the keyboarder.

I really think this whole show is geared to establishing him as a pop rocker with roots to rock and roll...his voice is really not for AC...yeah he can sing smooth ballads...but he really comes alive when there is a rocking beat...or in th soft arrangement almost, acoustic.

Angela ran away from Clay tonight -- she ran behind the keyboarder.

Lots of OMG's and groans in my ear......

Crowd went ballistic..........

He tried to put some ice down angela.....(I think) said he got ice from someone in the front row....

Touch if you will my stomach and those ladies are caressing OMC's belly! He just cracked up lauging! Those girls get him giggling too much!

The crows just screeched so he must have dipped her!

I'll get clarification on that ice thing at the end....Madison says he is ruthless with her tonight....who thinks the girls got locked in their dressing rooms again today......

she said someone in the front row had a bag of ice....

I'll finish this story later....

Doing his step dancing now....

Here It comes......Alone~ Absolutely beautiful.....

Slowing it down for "Alone." His voice is lingering on the lyrics...gorgeous.

Amps things up for the chorus, sounding amazing. Really big cheers.

"Rock With You."

-----

Sailing

-----

Somehow, "Sailing" feels like it is in just the right place in the set. Clay sounds so beautiful and contemplative singing it.

-----

So beautiful..smooth notes..like butter..

Voice sounding like perfection..(as always) *Sigh*

-----

Sailing is too beautiful for words.....

Saillllllling..........voice soars ...............

Soft gentle.....the back ups bring up the end nicely....great harmony.....

Madison says for those of you who care for details....."the hair is perfect tonight, very very nice...

-----

Apparently, Clay was trying not to crack up during "Sailing" because...someone was keeping time by tapping on Angela's foot? I don't know how the staging for this song works, so I'm not sure whether it was Clay or something.

And a HUGE cheer as "Can't Touch This" begins. Clay starts his spiel about 90s fashion.

-----

OK, Clay is "blaming" Angela for all the funny stuff that has happened tonight. I heard him say that she was the one who pulled him onto her lap, etc. He went through a whole list. Very funny, apparently.

-----

It sounded as if the audience was really quiet druing Sailing..may be we'll get nice audio clack from this concert!!

I can't make out what he's saying.. He's talking about Angela...then says Quaina's name..then something about Jacob.. he talks sooo fast!!

"These are the 90's!!!"

-----

BLACK VELVET NOW

You go Angela!!!

-----

Black Velvet very graspy and strong tonight. lots of feeling into the song

-----

END OF THE ROAD NOW!

Who woulda thunk Clay would/could do BOYZ II MEN???

Ohhh the canvas can do miralcesl, wiat and see

not too far from never never land

Sailing, takes me away to where I always heard it should be

Carry me, soon I will be free

Fantasy, it gets the best of me

when I'm sailing (so sultry)

all caught up in the memory

everyword a symphony, believe me

Sailing, takes me away to where I've always heard it should be

Dreams carry me, soon I will be free (forgive my lyrics!)

musical interlude (luv S'von and the Grand Piano)

Least not for you

wind right, sail away

find serenity

ohhhh canvas can do miracles

Believeeeee me

Sailin', takes me away

wind carry me, soon I will be free

such a peaceful end to a peaceful song!

Luv it luv it luv it!!!!!

---

OK, Clay is "blaming" Angela for all the funny stuff that has happened tonight. I heard him say that she was the one who pulled him onto her lap, etc. He went through a whole list. Very funny, apparently.

"Black Velvet."

---

Iris,

Clay Johnny R of goo goo dolls has nothing on you. I just wish he had brought it down just an octave but he's still thudalicious.

---

End of the Road..harmonies are tight..so beautiful...

Iris...

LLVL!!!! Shake it clay!!! Wooooo!!

Major screaming!~~~

Black Velvet very graspy and strong tonight. lots of feeling into the song

"End of the Road" sounding brilliant. This is one of my must-downloads for every show, along with the Elvis medley, ICMYLM and the new songs.

---

90's...............

Black Velvet......in his little boy sweet southern style......

End of the Road......greeted with loud screams.....

His voice is clear and perfect again for this song....I won't say again he should record everything ever written cause Psalm will come after me agin with her Tiny Tim line!!

Crowd roars with his ending.....

Iris now......rockin' it gently now....excuse me I need a moment

LLVL!!! Hips swaying, arms flailing back, chest out, hip swiveling, the ladies are holding back, it's a full on onslaught....

---

Jumping right into LA VIDA LOCA!!! He is MUY LOCA ( Yo Amo) in this song. His manuerism are hilarious.

Living La Vida Loca!!! We are loco over you Clay!!!!

Wild creaming!

--

Huge ovations after LVL and now it gets bewy bewy quiet.

TURN DOWN THE LIGHTS....

Oh, the crowd just laughed, so he's up to somethin.

Don't patrionize. Cuz I can't make you love me(TRY ME CLAY! iT WOULDN'T BE TOO HARD!)

You can't make your heart feel something it won't. (It's full of love for you man!)

I will lay down....finest hours (couldn't make out lyrics and don't know them!)

This is one slowwwww version.

Crowd gives him the props again!!!

---

Oh my goodness..someone screamed thru the phone after LLVL was done...it scared my parakeet and he fell off his perch!!!

ICMYLM...crowd quiet.no screaming out that I can hear..

Oh Clay..you can bring me to tears with this song.. sooo beautiful..

---

Whistles and screams all through the intro to ICMYLM!!

----

LLVL -- the crowd is going nuts as Clay flings off his vest, and starts the chorus. I can barely hear him over the screams! The vocals are spot-on, though! HUGE, HUGE screams at the end of this song.

The intro to ICMYLM now. Crowd still screaming.

----

When he said "Lay down with Me" there was a lot of laughter... I think I heard thunder...
