CANCELED: Concert: Musicians Corner, June 23, 2017, Nashville, TN


Acoustic Friday Night
Musicians Corner
June 23, 2017
Centennial Park
Nashville, TN
Canceled due to bad weather

Preview:
Kris is joining some other artists for a live acoustic concert in Nashville this Friday night. Hopefully Tropical Storm Cindy's remnants won't soak everyone! It sounds fun, as Kris is bringing his friend Melinda Doolittle and others to join him for some special songs they've worked up for his set. Sounds like it could be full band too (based on the people he tagged in his IG post). Stay dry Nashville!

(Admin note: Sorry I've been so silent! A real-life work project and some personal traveling has kept me pretty busy.)

Update: Show has been canceled due to weather (Tropical Storm Cindy's remnants). Kris plans to attend a concert the next day in the same location (but he won't be performing).

Getaway Tour: April 27, 2017: Nashville, TN


Concert with Parachute
April 27, 2017
Exit/In
Nashville, TN
8:30 PM CDT

Preview:
Kris is on a month-long acoustic tour with his good friends in the pop rock band Parachute. Parachute, who is fantastic about fan service, is letting their fans vote on their set list. Kris has keyboardist Andrew St. Marie in tow and he is sharing a bus with Parachute. The venues are smaller than either act filled last tour (apparently they are favorite venues of Parachute's), and so far the crowds have been lively and showing up early to line up. I've got Kris' expected set list in the post; Will post what I can find for Parachute's set list after the show (since it's changing each time).

The tour concludes on Thursday night when Parachute and Kris return to their current home base of Nashville for one last sold out show. Information for this specific show can be found after the break!

Updated 4/28/2017: Found a ton of good photos, some videos, set lists. All of it is after the break...

The tour continues Tuesday night in Carrboro, NC, near Raleigh. Kris did a fantastic show here during the Letting You In tour and the NC fans were awesome about sharing video. Information for this specific show can be found after the break! If you are going tonight, pay attention to local media; my news says that there are some flooding issues in that area today due to all the annoying rain in the mid-Atlantic we're having.

Updated 4/27/2017: Lots of photos but only LLWD videos. The show was packed and so hopefully some more will turn up! What I have found is after the break. If you can help with set list confirmation, please do so.

The tour continues Sunday night in Charlottesville, VA at a historic venue on the lovely Downtown Mall. I notice the show is sponsored by an excellent local radio station, 106.1 the Corner, who did a fantastic interview with Kris the last time he played C-ville and they told me that they are trying to do an interview related to this show on this Sunday afternoon around 4 pm. Plus Charlottesville is Parachute's hometown, so hoping that the crowd will be extra into this show.

This is the show I'm going to! So for once I will not need set list help. ;P I'm bringing one of my best friends who is not in Kris fandom; curious what she will think. She's into EDM and punk and this will be her first WGWG concert. Have to say she did seem a little reassured about what she's gotten into after she watched a Facebook video of Will from Parachute crowd-surfing. ;P We always have a blast when we go out anyway. (She says she'll help with typical show-sharing duties since acoustic WGWGs don't lend themselves to pogoing.) Plus it's a girlfriend getaway to one of our favorite towns, so we are really looking forward to this! From my years living here, April is definitely the time to visit Charlottesville! Of course, with Kris' visiting, the deluge of rain is forecasted - hoping it won't slow us down too much!

So yes, the excitement is real. Information for this specific show can be found after the break!

Updated 4/28/2017: Finally recovered enough from what was a really fun show to update the post! Full video stream link for Kris' set, set lists for both acts and some IG videos inside, plus my review. Updated 4/28 to add the interview/songs Kris performed for 106.1 the Corner!
