In other news, David Archuleta leads this week’s Top 5 concerts bill, according to NorthJersey.com
Today, Dec. 1
David Archuleta at the NYCB Theatre at Westbury (N.Y.) at 8 p.m. ($52-$62.50; call 516-247-5210 for more information.) davidarchuleta.com.
Why you should go: Though Archuleta is now 20 years old, his musical career began at the tender age of 10, when he won the children’s division of the Utah Talent Competition. At 12, he became the Junior Vocal Champion on “Star Search 2,” and four years later, he became one of the youngest contestants ever on the seventh season of “American Idol.” He finished as runner-up, receiving 44 percent of more than 97 million votes. Although he came in second, he still managed to secure a record deal, and several months afterward, he released his first single, “Crush.” His debut self-titled record came in at No. 2 on the Billboard 200, and he’s now gained a fan base not just in the States but abroad as well. Recently, he toured Asia, performing in the Philippines, Vietnam, Indonesia and Malaysia. If you’re interested in hearing this young, vibrant star’s catchy soulful pop tunes in a live setting, this is a perfect opportunity.
Sporting a sweater and scarf, the 20-year-old David Archuleta was in Salt Lake City, Utah, in late November 2011 to promote his Christmas concert CD and DVD, sign autographs, sit for some media interviews and enjoy Thanksgiving with his family before embarking on a Christmas tour.

Pop City Life had the pleasure of interviewing Steven J. Robinson this weekend. Steven is an up and coming actor and drummer. Starting December 1st, you can catch Steven drumming in David Archuleta’s band as part of the My Kind of Christmas tour. PCL chatted with Steven about his acting goals for the future, what it’s like drumming with David, and even managed to squeeze a spoiler or two out of him for the upcoming tour. Check it out HERE!
Some David-related excerpts from the interview:
PCL: What’s the most challenging thing about drumming? One fan would like to know how many sticks you break during a show haha.
it all depends on the show, and how hard I’m hitting. With David, on average during the Asia tour, I would break one stick a show-because I tend to hit harder playing David’s shows. In other projects, my sticks last as long as they can take the beating! Ha ha
PCL: How are rehearsals for the tour going? What’s it like working with David?
Steven: Rehearsals are great! Every time we meet, the show content gets tighter and tighter. We have a couple more before the first show.
Working with David is super cool. I’ve said it before- It’s a pleasure working Continue reading »
