American Idols Ruben & Clay Concert in Arcadia


Ruben & Clay


Have you heard the news? History-making American Idol stars and multi-platinum recording artists Ruben Studdard and Clay Aiken are coming to Arcadia! Tune into this special message from Ruben and Clay to our Arcadia community. Ruben and Clay captivated audiences during their historic run on the second season of Fox’s American Idol


These two decorated performers will kick off the West Coast leg of their critically acclaimed Twenty | The Tour in our very own Arcadia Performing Arts Center on Saturday, September 23, at 8 p.m. Tickets will sell out and are going fast, so grab your seats for this historic show today here. We give our excited thanks to the Arcadia Performing Arts Foundation, whose tremendous efforts have brought this history-making show to us.

Did you know that our Arcadia Performing Arts Center recently made history of its own through the celebration of its 10-year anniversary? We remain so grateful to our Arcadia Idols–our community members–for making this beautiful, world-class facility possible for our students to imagine, inquire, and inspire in and for bringing a performing arts hub for the San Gabriel Valley to Arcadia through the many professional shows, including Ruben and Clay, and acts it has been home for the past decade. 

Here’s a quick walk down Ruben and Clay’s historic memory lane. In 2003, over 38 million viewers tuned in to hear the results of the more than 124 million votes cast during Ruben and Clay’s head-to-head season finale, making it the most-watched Idol episode in the history of the series and also making it the highest-rated regularly scheduled, live, non-sporting television episode of the 21st century. Fast forward 20 years later, our community gets to be a part of this continued special Ruben and Clay American Idol history. For full event and ticket information, visit
