Clay Aiken, Ruben Studdard coming to Ruth Eckerd Hall
Yes, American Idol Season 2 winner and runner-up Ruben Studdard and Clay Aiken are teaming up for a joint 17-city tour this summer, and it'll hit Clearwater's Ruth Eckerd Hall on July 26. Here's the announcement on Clay's Web site.
“I couldn’t ask for a better tour mate. To be able to share the stage with him again is so exciting,” Aiken said in a statement. “He is such a talented artist. He inspires me daily and I think that respect and admiration will truly be reflected in our show.”
No ticket info has been announced just yet. But this show will definitely sell out immediately, because Clay Aiken fans are insane dedicated, and will do anything to see their dude in the flesh.
And yeah, we know Clay and Ruben probably aren't "mortal enemies." But it's fun to pretend.
