Column: For some, Aranda’s hometown shows are a pilgrimage

“American Idol” runner-up Alejandro Aranda ended his modest national tour of a half-dozen small venues with shows Wednesday and Thursday at the Glass House in his native Pomona. I was there for Wednesday’s concert and collected show tidbits and anecdotes from concertgoers, some of whom came a loooong way to see him. The result is Friday’s column.

Stats corner: Of my Top 5 most-read columns online in 2019, four are about Aranda. No. 4 is about Golden Spur in Glendora.

    That is really adoration, to come from another state or hundreds of miles in this state to see his concert. When you told me he would be at the Glass House I looked it up and realized that it is not my type of venue–it might have been 40 years ago. I hope that the promoters would try to get him for the smaller venues in this area before he is playing stadiums, The new Canyon in Montclair and the Lewis Playhouse in Rancho would be excellent venues for his performances, It looks like he is going to have quite a career–yay!
