David Archuleta is hitting the road next month. So far, 20 dates have been announced. I went through a lot to get them for you. The logical first stop was what appears to be his official website, which, I found out, you have to be approved to even view. My “membership” is pending approval. Seeing that graphic pop up on the screen was a moment of reckoning, like when I realized that Facebook announced to my friends that “Mandi listened to David Archuleta’s ‘Crush.'” (It didn’t show up right away in my the feed, so I thought I got away with it. I went to bed, and had to delete it the next morning. You just know someone programmed that delay on purpose.) I wonder if Archie’s lost any casual fans because they visited the website, and just couldn’t bring themselves to leave a trail. Anyone? Why must “Crush” be so darn catchy, and make us so happy that the boy no one thought could be a contemporary artist found a way?
