Musicians Corner presents: A Tribute to Paul Simon's Graceland
July 26, 2017
Nashville, TN
Doors 6 PM; Show 8 PM CDT
Purchase tickets here


Preview:
Kris joins musician friends such as Tony Lucca (with whom he co-wrote Never in a Million Years) and Marie Miller (who opened for him on west coast leg of last year's Letting You In tour), for this charity gig in Nashville to benefit Musicians Corner. The theme is a salute to Paul Simon's landmark album Graceland. Kris has participated in similar charity benefit tributes in past years, and we were lucky to have most of them livestreamed and/or video'ed - rare for Nashville shows!  We also got some really great performances from them. Hopefully the same will be true this time. Tickets are still available, so if you are in Nashville, go support them!

Updated 7/27/2017: We are in luck as our friend Annie was there and did get video (which she will post when she returns from the weekend in Nashville). Kris did three songs - one solo, one duet and one group number at the end. Details and photos in the post after the break, and videos will be added when they are available.

Concert: July 3, 2017: Bettendorf, IA


July 3, 2017
Bettendorf, IA
North side of the Middle School!
9 PM Central

Preview:
Kris is partying for the Fourth of July on the third of July in the city of Bettendorf, Iowa. This is one of the Quad Cities and on the border of Iowa/northern Illinois.

Updated 7/4/2017: What a great set list Bettendorf got, including a premiere cover! And the return of American Girl, which apparently KAB only plays in cities that don't do media. Hopefully some videos will pop up but for now we have some photos and a full set list after the break.

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...
