Malaysian music fans were in for a treat lately with a string of concerts in these past few days. From Incubus coming here for the third time to various acts like Neon Trees, 30 Seconds to Mars and Beast for MTV World Stage 2011; we were once again treated to yet another concert!
American Idol season 7 runner up, David Archuleta is back in Malaysia for his maiden concert, having performed in a showcase here back in April 2009. This time, he came to our shores for the final leg of his The Other Side of Down Asian Tour 2011.
About 3,000 fans headed to Stadium Negara on 26 July, comprising mostly of screaming teenage girls and their obliging parents. Some have even arrived in the stadium as early as 5 pm!
David appeared at about 9 pm and entertained the crowd with his hits such as Something ‘Bout Love, Touch My Hand, Elevator, and A Little Too Not Over You. Not alienating his older fans, he also performed covers such as Tears For Fears’ Everybody Wants to Rule the World, Vanessa Carlton’s A Thousand Miles, and Ben E King’s Stand By Me.
He has clearly matured as a performer and singer, appearing more confident onstage and constantly interacting with his adoring fans. However, none of his youthfulness was spared as he jumped all over the stage – he surely has lots of energy! “Little” David, now 21 years old, also thanked his fans who have been supporting him since his stint on American Idol back in 2008.
David disappeared after performing Zero Gravity, and of course, came back out for an encore. If in his previous concerts in Jakarta, Manila, Ho Chi Minh and Hanoi, he only performed two songs for his encore… in Kuala Lumpur David surprised fans with three songs instead!
Taking on the keyboard, David performed Bryan Adams’ Heaven and Gnarls Barkley’s Crazy. According to him, that was the first time he performed that song! His acoustic rendition of Crazy is surely worth a praise.
The concert ended with his first ever single, Crush.

David Archuleta Talks New Music And Getting Starstruck

Not everything we talked about with David Archuleta made it into the 17-31 July issue of Galaxie magazine. So as a bonus for you Archie fans, here’s the rest of the interview session…
Will you continue to write uplifting music or will it be something different for the new material?
I think it can be motivating by being able to relate to people. And it be as real as it can. Be as true to me as it can. That’s just another thing that I’m looking forward to. Being able to have the music not just with the words I’m saying but the way it sounds. Music says so much. Classical music doesn’t have any words but it still says so much. I’m hoping to be able to really take time to define my sound, my music.
What’s the inspiration behind your new music?
The inspiration, I guess the best way to describe it is what’s on my mind. What’s going on in my head, it’s hard for me to explain sometimes and I feel like for the first time, I am kinda able to bring it out. I guess that’s the way I would describe the direction I’m going in right now.
You’ll be 21 this year. Any big plans?
No, not really [laughs]. I always like to go out and eat and spend time with my family and friends. Nothing too crazy. I like to keep it pretty low-key.
With so much going on right now, do you still have plans to go back to school?
Yeah, I don’t think that there’s ever a time when it is too late to go back to school. I would love to take music classes. I love the heart of music and the emotion but I never really got to understand the musical theory and the more technical side of music. That’s something I’d love to learn more about. Performing and putting out music is my No. 1 priority right now so that’s what I’m focusing most on. I’m a very spontaneous person unfortunately. A lot of times that can be a bad thing but I try to be sensitive to whatever I feel and whatever changes in what I feel I should do. And keeping in tune with whatever your instincts kind of say.
Have there been any celebs that have left you starstruck?
I was starstruck by Ringo Starr. I was so starstruck that I couldn’t even go up to him. I was pretty starstruck with Bono too.

A CRUSH ON ARCHULETA
Source: The Sun Daily
FORMER American Idol (2007) runner-up, David Archuleta, was in his element during his concert on Tuesday.
Thrilling his fans to bits with his vocal prowess, Archuleta’s concert here was the last leg of his The Other Side of Down Asia Tour.
However, at a press conference held the day before the concert, he seemed nervous and tongue-tied. The humble 21-year-old’s hectic schedule may have had something to do with it as his press meet was held barely a couple of hours after he arrived in Kuala Lumpur. Furthermore, he had to rush off to Fahrenheit 88 for a meet-the-fans session.
Nonetheless, fresh from his performances in Vietnam and Indonesia, Archuleta was full of praise for his Asian fans. “I released an Asian tour edition of my last album, The Other Side of Down, which has five additional songs and I’m just really excited to share them with my fans in Asia. It’s kind of a way for me to say a big thank you to all of my fans here for supporting me all this while,” he said.
When Archuleta took to the stage to perform at Stadium Negara that night, he was extremely energetic and cheerful, proving that singing is truly his forte.
Local singer Choo Hao Ren and his dance crew, The Mustang Crew, opened the concert with a pulsating number, Wu Gong. It was enough to get the 3,500-strong crowd all hyped up and ready for Archuleta’s performance.
Fans screamed as loudly as they could when Archuleta jumped on stage with his band. The VVIP and VIP area in front of the stage became a rock zone as everyone abandoned their chairs, stood up and grooved to Archuleta’s opening track, Stomping the Roses.
Without pausing, he continued with two more fast tracks, The Other Side of Down and A Little Too Not Over You, and then slowed down with Love Don’t Hate and Something ’bout Love. Archuleta also showed off his piano skills as he performed two songs solo while playing on the piano.
He sang My Kind of Perfect, which he called his own love song, and Vanessa Carlton’s A Thousand Mile which, he said, reminded him of his mother each time he travels for his live tours. Fans delightfully sang along with him when he rendered A Thousand Mile.
Archuleta also covered Tears For Fears’ Everybody Wants to Rule the World and he mentioned that it was one of his favourite songs. “I take the message in this song to my heart. Sometimes, there are people who try to tell you what you can and cannot do. But I’m a big believer that if you have a dream, you should just go for it and believe in yourself!” he told his fans.
As if it was American Idol all over again, Archuleta also covered Ben E. King’s Stand By Me, Bryan Adam’s Heaven and Gnarls Barkley’s Crazy. Once again, he sang Crazy solo accompanied by the piano.
When he performed the cheeky and upbeat tune, Elevator, he orchestrated the audience to singalong with him and it was just really fun to see him running happily from one end of the stage to the other.
Archuleta also sang Falling Stars, Everything and More, Touch My Hand and Zero Gravity, before bidding goodbye to his fans with his biggest hit, Crush.
Archuleta’s interaction with his fans was very good. It was quite clear that he is very grateful to his fans. In fact throughout the concert, he thanked them profusely for coming to his show.
His vocal performance was extremely powerful and he was in top form the entire night. It was certainly one of the best vocal performances I had ever seen so far. Those who did not catch this concert had missed out on watching one of the best vocalists from American Idol in action.
Archuleta thrills fans with his honeyed charm

Dreamy: David Archuleta had no trouble entertaining the 2,500-strong crowd at his KL concert.
The absence of fireworks and fancy costume changes meant that Archuleta had only one thing to rely on – his voice. He used it well, too, flaunting his signature vocal prowess on emotive, baby-smooth numbers.
It was a sweet treat filled with sugary serenades for fans of David Archuleta at his recent concert in Kuala Lumpur.
IN person, David Archuleta brims with childlike candor, giggling profusely when we asked him about girls. Apparently, the 21-year-old singer from Utah, the United States, has never been kissed.
Kicking back on a couch at Hilton Hotel in Kuala Lumpur on Monday, he confessed that he isn’t a mushy person, blushing as he did.
“Fans have tried to kiss me,” he said coyly. “But they usually don’t succeed. I have quick reflexes. It’s okay if my grandma or my mum and sister kiss me on the cheek, but otherwise, it’s just weird.”
He insisted that a kiss isn’t just a kiss. “I feel that it’s very important and it’s not something you should just give away. I know sometimes people go like: ‘Oh, you’re cute, I’m gonna kiss you’, but for me, sharing a kiss means you care for someone, that you feel affection for them. I don’t wanna be giving it away like candy.”
Archuleta added he has never been in a relationship. “I haven’t found that someone special yet and I’m still saving my first kiss for whoever that is.”
His single, My Kind Of Perfect, he said, epitomizes his quest for the right girl.
“It’s my perfect love song,” he shared with a twinkle in his eyes. “It’s for a future girl who I don’t know yet. I wrote that song while thinking about who is she going to be? Or have I already met her?”
He hasn’t let fame mess with his head either. “I don’t wanna go on a date and just hook up with girls for fun. I don’t like that. I think it’s very important to respect girls and really get to know the person you’ll marry and spend the rest of your life with.”
The affable pop singer channeled his hopeful longing at his concert in Stadium Negara, Kuala Lumpur, the following night, bringing on that honeyed charm that so effectively lulled nearly 2,500 fans.
He looked completely immersed in a visceral calm as he sang the maple syrup-drenched verses of My Kind Of Perfect while playing the piano. “It’s my love song,” he told fans, his face shining with mirthful belief.
Maybe I’ve known you all my life / Is she the one? Is it today? / Will I turn the corner / see my future in a beautiful face, maybe, he sang.
Indeed, it was a sweet treat filled with sugary serenades for fans of the pop singer that night. No more was he the shy little boy we conversed with earlier.
Onstage, young Archuleta possessed the pomp and readiness of a much older performer, radiating surety and confidence all through the one-hour plus affair.
“Performing on stage, seeing all my fans and feeling their energy is the greatest feeling ever,” said Archuleta, who was met with joyous, ear-splitting screams the moment he stepped on stage.
Archuleta, who emerged the runner-up on the hit reality series, American Idol, in 2008 kicked off the set with the catchy Stomping The Roses, brandishing the energetic opening with youthful enthusiasm.
Clearly, the boy knew what he was doing and he was doing it well. Fans clung onto every word as he took them through The Other Side Of Down, Love Don’t Hate and Something Bout Love.
If anything, the absence of fireworks and fancy costume changes meant that Archuleta had only one thing to rely on – his voice. He’d used it well, too, flaunting his signature vocal prowess on emotive, baby-smooth numbers that make you just want to smile.
He went on with the radio-friendly A Little Too Not Over You before breaking into an evocative cover of Tears for Fears’ Everybody Wants To Rule The World.
Speaking of which, Archuleta was certainly big on covers that night, asserting his gentle appeal on popular all-time favourites like Gnarls Barkley’s Crazy and Brian Adams’ Heaven, which made the show feel somewhat like a prolonged, live-sized version of American Idol at times – minus the entertaining tirades from its ex-judge Simon Cowell.
Still, the mood was mostly chipper and light-hearted throughout, buoyed by breezy sing-a-longs like Elevator and his rendition of Vanessa Carlton’s A Thousand Miles. When the Ben E. King classic, Stand By Me, came to play, almost everyone in the crowd, as though jolted by instinct, began clapping in synchrony.
Archuleta may not have the rocking edge of Adam Lambert or the girlish sassiness of Carrie Underwood, but the baby-faced singer certainly has the talent and charisma to pull off his own show.
He ended the night with his hit single Crush, looking thoroughly ecstatic as he poured his heart out.
