Free Archuleta concert at Clovis mall

David Archuleta, a teen pop star and 2008 "American Idol" runner-up, is playing a free concert today at Sierra Vista Mall in Clovis.

Archuleta will perform at 5:45 p.m. at the mall's center court, and even though it's a short-notice show, a dozen people were lined up this morning when the mall opened at 8 a.m.

By 10:30 a.m., more than 30 people were waiting to see Archuleta, says a mall spokesperson. It's a standing-room-only event.

Archuleta last performed in Fresno in July 2009, opening for Demi Lovato at Save Mart Center.

The concert is another free concert put on by radio station KWYE (FM, 101.1), which has put on similar "unplugged" shows around town with Backstreet Boys, Sugar Ray and, most recently, Gin Blossoms.
