Clay Aiken reschedules "The Joyful Noise Tour" holiday concert tour dates
By Reality TV World staff, 11/29/2004
One-time American Idol runner-up Clay Aiken, who last week had to cancel the first three shows of his "The Joyful Noise Tour" holiday concert tour due to ongoing ear and sinus infections, has announced rescheduled dates for the shows.
The Pasadena, CA concert, originally scheduled to open the tour on November 21, has been rescheduled for December 28, with the November 22 Phoenix, AZ concert rescheduled for December 29 and the originally-planned November 23 El Cajon, CA moved to December 30.
Clay's tour began on Friday, November 26 in Costa Mesa, CA, a show originally scheduled to be the fourth stop of the tour. Clay has made a special and unusual request of attendees for his fourth concert tour -- that they dress nice.
"There will be a full orchestra on stage, we're going to have an elementary school choir in each city, a high school choir in each city," stated Aiken. As such, given that the crew will be in their "Sunday best," Clay hopes that the audience will do that same.
Clay, who also serves as spokesman for U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Campaign and has a brother in the Marines, will also have Marines manning toy collection stations at each concert location.
