WE DO NOT SEE COOK & ARCHULETA AS FOES. THEY ARE BOTH TALENTED IN THEIR OWN SINGING STYLES. NO CONTEST ACTUALLY. FILIPINOS ARE VERY EXCITED TO SEE LIVE - 2 GREATEST TALENTS AMERICAN IDOL HAS EVER PRODUCED. WE LOVE THEM BOTH. FILIPINOS JUST WANNA HAVE FUN ON MAY 16th!

MABUHAY DAVIDS! YOU ARE VERY WELCOME!

45,000 TICKETS ARE SOLD OUT ALREADY!

It's just like the idol producers and simon to
force cook to tour with David archuleta jus to capitalize on Archie's fame and screaming girls
and women. We have never heard of cook. He is not
popular like ARchuleta is. Cook is known, Archie is worldwide Famous. Archie, do not let that grunge wannabe daughtry act take advantage on your shows.

To organizers of Archey & Cookey Concert in Manila.... PLEASE CHANGE THE VENUE from SM Mall of Asia to ARANETA COLISEUM. If not possible, let's pray that it won't rain down on May 16th.

Another request for the organizers: PLEASE LET ARCHEY & COOKEY wear in the concernt the "PINOY 3 STARS & A SUN" T-Shirts (representing Philippine flag). I think said T-shirt will add cuteness to the 2 Davids.

Filipino fans will go full force during their stay in Manila to show our love for Archey and Cookey.

To: Rickey... PLEASE KEEP US UPDATED REGARDING THIS CONCERT.. THANK YOU VERY MUCH AND GOD BLESS.

Titanium tickets are Php12K+

However, there's no point in buying titanium tickets when you can't sit in front---I almost got myself a titanium but I was told by the ticket distributor that the first 8 rows were taken by the poromoter.

Get yourselves either Platinum which costs Php6K+ or VIP Php3K+

By the way, I will be alone that night...see you guys at the concert! Hehe!

bahahaha Archie sounds like he's trying to over-enunciate for the non-english speaking crowd. Orrr he's trying to adopt a filipino accent. Not sure which, but it's cute as hell.

Also I see Snarkies lists April 5-6 for David A in Hong Kong.

From what I have found, David A will be...
April 5-6 Hong Kong
April 7 Singapore
April 9-11 Kuala Lumpur, Manila
May 16 Manila, Philippines with Cook

violet4ever
violet4ever

The Asia dates have been all over the place. First they were all listed as early April, and now a confirmed May 16 for Manila. But just last week I saw supposedly Sony-confirmed April 9-11 for Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. And I think April 7 is Singapore. So maybe David A is making two visits to Asia?

We don't have any info about the Asian tour dates here. But some of the related Archie fan groups seem to have more and those are the place to watch for info.

Allison - Information about the Asia dates has been very confusing. I think Kuala Lumpur, Malasia got a new date recently and it is Sunway Lagoon on April 11. Singapore and maybe Hong Kong are between the Philippines and Malaysia dates. Maybe Cook's camp has better info on these dates.

oh, ree ... don't give up hope!! somehow it'll work out! ... necessity is the mother of all invention, lol ... that might not make sense to you, lol ... but one of the other mom's with odd here told me that when I had doubts of ever meeting David and she was right, cause I used everything I learned here at rickey's from other angels and got to meet David ... so there's always hope that things will work out! ... hopefully it's enough notice you can reschedule or cancel whatever you've got going that day! let us know how it all works out, k? GOOD LUCK!!! :)
