David Archuleta: Six-Week Solo Tour to be Announced, Label readying European and Japanese Album Releases

Richard Rushfield of the LA Times attended David Archuleta’s show in Park City, Utah Saturday night. He posted a really interesting article about the entire experience for his Times Idol blog.

A couple of highlights: Richard got stuck in an elevator with David’s family. Plus, David really likes to dance! Richard chatted with David’s dad and co-manager, Jeff Archuleta. Here’s what’s coming up for David in the near future:

As David met with a TV crew, I chatted with his father (and manager), Jeff, who told me a bit about what’s ahead for David: David’s second single is out, and his labels are planning for the European and Japanese releases of his album; in the near future will be an announcement about David’s first solo national tour ‘  apparently about six weeks, in 1, 000- to 2, 000-seat venues, aiming for some areas the Idols Live tour bypassed. Then I followed David and Jeff up to the suite to await showtime, 11 p.m.

And, last night, David performed the National Anthem at a pre-inaugual Latin ball in Washington DC headlined by Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony. Also in attendance were Wilmer Valderrama from That 70’s Show, comedian George Lopez and actress Rosie Perez.
