Opening Act: Curtis Peoples

All Ages



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. :)

Updated: Great to see Kris live again! My thoughts & videos, and more media after the jump!

I love when Kris and his band come east - it's easy to find people for the lists and the fans are more enthusiastic and better at sharing media than some other places! So they're here on the east coast now, starting with this show in Philadelphia.

As far as the list goes, I do expect to be adding people as we go tonight so please do refresh from time to time. For a preview of my plans for coverage of the shows with Boyce Avenue, see this post.

Opening Act: Andy Suzuki and the Method

All ages





Show and List Preview:
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.)

Updated: Full set list, videos, two radio interviews and mp3 after the jump!

    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!
