Christmas Concert: December 18, 2014: Baby It Ain't Christmas Without a StageIt Show

Annual StageIt Christmas Concert

December 18, 2014

8:00 PM Eastern

In what has become a highly anticipated annual holiday tradition, Kris Allen brings us his Christmas StageIt show. For those who haven't used StageIt before, it's an online platform for artists to perform via a livestream to their fans. You do need to buy a ticket-however, as of two hours before the show, they are sold out (for the third time).

Here's the link to the show just in case more tickets are released:

Updated: Did you miss the show or not read your email like I advised? Don't despair! Tons of videos, set list and mp3s after the break!

Christmas Show: December 13, 2014: Dickens of a Christmas, Franklin, TN

Dickens of a Christmas
December 13, 2014
Public Square Stage
Franklin, TN (Nashville)
3:45 - 4:30 PM CST


Show and List Preview:
Kris headlines this two-day Christmas festival in the historic town of Franklin, TN (near Nashville). The festival actually sounds fun: Victorian themed, with a public singalong immediately following Kris' performance, and of course lots of good food and live music. Last year more than 50,000 attended the two day event, so should be a good crowd. (Now how many will live tweet Kris for us, that is the question! So far most of the list is comprised of local news and vendor twitters.) You may recall that Kris played a show here in April, but we did not get a lot of media. Hopefully a well-attended Christmas festival will be different! If you go, please let me know to add you to our Twitter list! (Tweet me @KrisAllenLists.)

This is it ... the last No Limits Tour show. Some of you may recall that Kris played this particular venue back in 2009 for a radio station's Christmas show. So let's hope he plays his Christmas song! Also will be interesting to see if there are any on-stage collaborations or tour pranks.

After this show, Kris will have a break for Thanksgiving, then play a college gig (Fontbonne State in St. Louis) in early December. Then a Florida tour in January follows, capped off with the Rock Boat cruise.

The tour heads to Los Angeles, always a town that finds the Kris epic. Last time Kris played the Wiltern, he opened for Lady Antebellum (always wished they had done more shows together). We got this bit of epic, though, especially around the 3:50 mark. Hope we'll get something exciting tonight!

A word on the west coast lists - I'm east/best coast so I will most likely be asleep during most of these shows. Please help me out by letting me know to add you to the lists in advance! Otherwise, rather than add people to the list, I'll just RT the best stuff I find in search the day after the show. Also - for this particular list, I will be out of town all day but back in time for the show, so updates to the post or the list might not happen until just before showtime.

Not to mention Santa Cruz is on that lovely drive down Highway 1 along the west coast of California, south of San Jose and San Francisco and just north of Monterey, Carmel and Big Sur. Now I'm jealous of Kris for going there! It's lovely country.

A word on the west coast lists - I'm east/best coast so I will most likely be asleep during these shows. Please help me out by letting me know to add you to the lists in advance! Otherwise, rather than add people to the list, I'll just RT the best stuff I find in search the day after the show.

What: America's Veterans - A Musical Salute

Taped November 6, 2014 at Maryland Public Television studios in Owing Mills, MD

Airs November 11, 2014 on PBS (Veteran's Day)



How exciting - Kris took time out from the No Limits Tour today to tape this Maryland Public Television (MPT) special for Veteran's Day. He will appear with Season 6 Idol standout and good friend Melinda Doolittle on a special called America's Veterans - A Musical Salute! Kris and Melinda are joined by the US Airmen of Note and the U.S. Air Force Band and are slated to perform popular and patriotic favorites. From the pictures, it appears this includes a duet!

The special itself will air next Tuesday, Veterans Day, on PBS. Check local listings here. In DC where MPT and I are located, it will air at 8 PM EST. Or you can view a livestream on Maryland Public Television's website

Here are a few of the lovely pictures shared from the taping plus a video for which MPT tweeted a link to us (after the jump) and more:

Show and List Preview:
Kris and Boyce Avenue bring the tour to the DC suburb of Silver Spring (no s on the end), Maryland. DC lists are some of our rowdier lists. We may not video every song but you'll definitely see flail as our area loves Kris.

Unlike other lists, this time I'll be on it (that is, my personal twitter account will be on it). So you'll definitely get show tweets, set list tweets and bad photos. I may insta-video. We'll see! I haven't seen my Kris friends in the area in 22 months thanks to Kris' unreasonable and unexplained scorn of one of his most supportive cities, Washington, DC. Not that we're a little butthurt about that or anything.

So I've got some major catch-up to do on a rare mom's night out, and that's my priority! If the venue has wifi, I'll put my scorn of Chandelier to good use and update the list then. Otherwise, don't sweat it, all the best DC Kris fans are already on this list. :)

Oh how I wish I could go to this show as I graduated from UVA and adore Charlottesville. You've heard me rhapsodize about Virginia (I'm a native) and its love of great indie music before. I just took a road trip through rural parts of Virginia, listening to some fantastic college radio on the way, and it firmly reinforced my view that this is a state Kris really should build on his goodwill in. His music is a perfect fit.

Unfortunately I'm a grown-up now with a job and kids who have things going on, so no workday road trip to my beloved C-ville for me for this show. :( But I shall be following one of my favorite Kris fans, @MerryMary05 who is making the journey west on I-64 for this show! Yes, she's on the list.

It's also worth mentioning that this is a rare solo show for this Fall, and as such it will give us a longer set. Plus I've heard this venue is fantastic. I love that they have linked Horizons' Spotify stream and Kris' updated bio. Looking forward to following this one! (Admin. note - I will be getting home from all the said things going on late this night, so may not add people until showtime.)

    Getting Ready for the No Limits Tour 2014!


    The first shows of the Boyce Avenue/Kris Allen fall tour start this week! I thought it would be a good time to review how lists work and preview my plans for the show posts and lists this fall.


    What, there's a tour?

    You mean you didn't get tickets yet? You need to get on that! Here's what you should do:

    Go to krisallenofficial.com/tour for ticket and show information

    Go to krisallenvip.com for the "VIP experience" (a meet and greet with Kris)

    Tweet me @KrisAllenLists to let me know which show you are going to so I can add you to the live tweet list! Also if you could tweet me a picture of your ticket, I'd appreciate it!


    Lists!

    For those who don't know what I mean when I say "list," I'm talking about twitter lists that contain live tweets of posts from a specific show. I have a basic FAQ you can read here.

    If you are wondering how you got on a list, I or someone I know probably saw you tweeting about a show. Please don't stress about it - just relax and enjoy the show. But please do throw out a tweet or two - don't hold out on your fellow fans who are trying to enjoy the show vicariously! Not everyone is lucky enough to go see Kris live.

    Preview!

    For the Boyce Avenue shows, obviously, Kris is not the headliner. My focus in tweets and posts, however, will be Kris since he's who this blog is about. I have added Boyce Avenue fans to the lists, because we all know seeing Kris live is something that will hopefully and likely make them Kris fans, but please don't expect them to tweet a lot about Kris. :)  If anyone on the list is rude to Kris, I'll take them off the list; please don't harass them.

    Aside from that, the posts will take the usual format and timing - I'll put up the post and open the list a couple of days before a show, and close the list down a couple of days after. In the meantime, I'll update the post with set list, photos and links to videos, articles and photo albums, so that there's a great record of Kris' part of each show.

    By the way, this is not intended to slight Boyce Avenue or their fans at all. From the tweets I've seen, they seem like very nice and cool people! I'm assuming they have their own fan pages where one can get videos, photos, set list etc. (I'm happy to pass along the link if it's sent to me because I know Kris fans will enjoy them!) I'm also hoping the two acts will collaborate on stage, so will definitely chronicle that if it happens.

    Have fun this Fall! See ya on the lists!

    Concert: September 12, 2014: Gem Theatre, Calhoun, GA

    Promo Flyer by Team Kris






    Concert

    September 12, 2014

    Gem Theatre

    Calhoun, GA

    8:30 PM


    Opening Act: Charlie Wilson




    Show and List Preview:
    It's the last show of the Horizons Tour (how sad is that). It's in a suburban venue near a major city (Atlanta) and less than an hour from Chattanooga, TN. It's also a 2 1/2 hour drive from Birmingham, AL. So let's hope people turn out. Our list is not big. Unfortunately Kris is doing the show the same night Ed Sheeran is playing Atlanta, so some Kris fans have sadly tweeted they already had bought Ed tickets. (Update: According to a tweet, the concert was well attended which is great!)

    After this, Kris does a charity event on Saturday and two college shows in Texas. Then we take a break until the Boyce Avenue tour.

    Concert

    September 11, 2014

    The Grey Eagle

    Asheville, NC

    8:00 PM EDT


    Opening Acts: Jillian Edwards





    Show and List Preview:
    Kris heads back south for a show in Asheville, NC. The last time he played here, we got an epic cover of Tom Petty's Breakdown. Tonight's venue describes itself as a "listening room" and says an artist "must have marquee value to play here." Our list is not big, but hopefully it will grow as we get closer to the show (and it seems to be). (Update - This turned out to be one of our best lists of the Horizons Tour - well done, Asheville!)

    Concert

    September 10, 2014

    The Harvester

    Rocky Mount, VA

    8 PM Eastern


    Opening Acts: Jillian Edwards





    Show and List Preview:
    Well Virginia fans have begged for a show since the last one in January 2013, and Virginia fans finally got one. If only it was in a large metropolitan area like Northern Virginia or Virginia Beach, home to some of Kris' biggest, most avid fans, we'd have some more folks on the list! But this show is in a small southwestern Virginia town near the Blue Ridge mountains. The closest big city (Roanoke) is a half hour away and the nearest big university, Virginia Tech, is about 75 minutes away.

    Having said all that, the venue is new, looks cool and is all ages. And all of Virginia loves live music so those people who do go to the show will have a blast. (If you're going, please let me know so I can add you to the live twitter list.)

    Show and List Preview:
    This show is a rescheduled show from the one that was set for last February but canceled due to a huge east coast winter storm. The venue is in a remote part of northern Connecticut near the Massachusetts border. We do have some of the fandom's finest on the list.

      College Show
      September 4, 2014
      The Quad
      Monmouth University
      West Long Branch, NJ
      7:30 PM


      Show and List Preview:
      This is a college show with little advertising, presumably because it's another welcome back concert for students only. The list is short now, but look for it to grow on Thursday night as college lists do during show time. (And update: It has grown considerably and is quite flaily like a good concert live tweet list should be!)

      Kris performed a free welcome back lunchtime concert for students at the University of Akron. As always, the college tweets came in late, flaily and fast, and the students who caught it seemed to enjoy it! He also did a fun interview with WZIP, the university's radio station.

      Opening Act: Jeff LeBlanc






      Show and List Preview:
      Kris does a show tonight in Utica, NY at the theater of the local community college. Originally advertised as a college show (as you can see from the prices in the flyer), it's turned into a much bigger deal. Yahoo! Yahoo! Screen, which has been livestreaming a concert every night all summer, chose this concert to livestream! So we hope that the people of central New York State will turn out like their fellow citizens in New York City always do!
