After much anticipation and speculation, Clay Aiken and Ruben
Studdard confirmed plans to tour North America. Kicking off July 23,
2010 in Asheville, North Carolina, Clay and Ruben will bring their
"Timeless" tour to 17 cities including appearances at famed venues such
as New York's Hammerstein Ballroom, Club Nokia in Los Angeles, and
Pennsylvania's American Music Theater. This is the first time the two
artists will tour together.
"I couldn't ask for a better tour mate. To be able to share the
stage with him again is so exciting," said Clay Aiken. "He is such a
talented artist. He inspires me daily and I think that respect and
admiration will truly be reflected in our show."
"It is truly a blessing and an honor to be on the stage with my
friend," said Ruben Studdard. "The relationship that we have built over
these past eight years will definitely translate into a great show for
our fans. And I'm really looking forward to singing the timeless
classics every night."
Concert goers can expect an entertaining evening as two friends and
colleagues blend their talents for an unforgettable show. Clay and Ruben
will be performing their renditions of classic hits from the past five
decades. Fans can look forward to duets and special surprises
throughout the tour.
In 2003, on the second season of American Idol, with over 24 million
votes cast by the TV viewing audience, Ruben Studdard won the title,
while Clay Aiken was the very close runner up. The two became instant
friends and have shared the joys and pressures of their success over the
past seven years. Since Idol, both artists have released albums,
performed around the country and made multiple appearances on TV.
