Well Clay Aiken fans were out in full force last night as they descended on our Virgin Megastore Times Square – two days early to secure a place in line to meet Clay Aiken. Fans slept on the streets outside our store for two nights waiting for his arrival yesterday afternoon. Clay’s CD went on sale at midnight on Monday and it was quite the event for our friends outside. Hundreds of fans chanted as midnight approached in anticipation of purchasing “On My Way Here”. Multiple copies were bought by each fan making it a record breaking Clay Aiken fan night! Clay arrived at the Virgin Times Square on May 6th just before his scheduled 2PM signing from his busy TV appearance schedule in NYC. Clay Fans (not to be mistaken with the Clay Mates) clapped and screamed as he went down the escalator. We were only able to get the first 300 fans in to meet him, due to his packed schedule — however we look forward to having him back again in our stores soon. In case you couldn’t make it out – check out the video below.


Virgin VIP Winner Sulin Yao got the chance to meet her favorite star Clay Aiken yesterday at the instore. Sulin was very excited to have this opportunity and said, “I never win anything, glad I signed up for VIP!” It was a very exciting moment as Sulin and Clay had the opportunity to chat before he signed CDs for 300 eager fans. Clay even inquired about our VIP program and loved that we offer such a unique opportunity for our customer’s.
