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.

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!)

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.)

    College Show: September 4, 2014: Monmouth University, West Long Branch, NJ

    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!)

    Show and List Preview:
    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.

    Schaefer Theater
    Mohawk Valley Community College

    Utica, NY

    7:00 PM EDT SHOW
    7:50 PM EDT STREAM

    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!
