The Christmas Tour

Clay Aiken is putting together his fourth annual Christmas tour. He's said that the Christmas concerts are his favorites. I'm not surprised. No one sings Christmas like Mr. Aiken. As usual it's never easy being a Clay fan. Most tours dates are announced all at once so fans can make plans. Clay fans usually have to ferret out the information for themselves. We get it piecemeal info usually if the concert shows up on a venue website before it's officially announced. As of right now there are only four tour dates up on the Official Fan Club Website. Why? I have no idea, but here are some of the dates that have been unearthed by the team that could unearth Osama Bin Ladin if set to task (at least according to Clay).

11-28-07 South Bend, IN -- Morris Center
11-29-07 Waukegan, Il.-- Genesee Theatre

Dear Friends,

As the House Manager of the Community Arts Center, I am so pleased to welcome Clay Aiken and his fans back to our beautiful venue. The entire staff of the CAC had such a wonderful experience with not only Mr. Aiken, but with his wonderful Claymates and Claymaniacs last year. I believe that myself and the rest of the staff were moved not only by his talent, but his kind and loving nature. Not only is he an very talented artist, but a gentleman as well!We really hope to see all of you again at the Community Arts Center on December 15, 2007. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns!

Best Wishes,
Lara Collins

BreonHouse Manager
