6:30 PM EDT


Show and List Preview:
I was asked if I would cover this festival thing that sprouted up and, reading the description, it does sound like just the thing Kris seems to need to get inspired to do some of the things with his career that I would like to see him do. I like that Charlie Peacock, his Horizons producer, is directing it. Most of it is private, but it does have a free public concert on Thursday, July 30.
Updated with media, limited set list info, and tweets from the retreat, plus a song snippet from his writing session with another artist, after the break...

Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium
Tiger Lane Green, Lots A-F
Memphis, TN

Time: 9:00 PM CDT

Opening Act: Alexis Grace


Show and List Preview:
I don't know about this one. It seems it has not been promoted on Twitter at all. With a little googling and surfing, I have found some promotion though (linked below). But I've got no one on the list. We'll hope it goes well. I'm much more enthused about his next scheduled event (Tom Petty tribute in Nashville on August 31) which seems more up his alley. For those hoping for a Lil Rounds S8 reunion or a duet with WAR, they are headliners on their own nights and not appearing with Kris. Instead, Alexis Grace from Idol Season 8 is his opening act.

Updated: Dead as I predicted, sadly. Please email krinjalists@gmail.com if you were there and can fill in with set list details or photos. There is some media from a promotional appearance after the break and a few of you found Facebook videos from the show.

Kris on at 5:45 pm EDT



Show and List Preview:
Kris is one of the featured performers for this brand new festival! Although, I'll be honest, as a General Hospital and Nashville fan, I'm kind of psyched that Jonathan Jackson is in it too. The other day my work BFF asked me if I thought Lucky was going to stay a long time on GH this time around, and I said, nope, he's got a tour and a show with Kris! (I have to admit, that made her laugh.)

Anyway, this festival looks like a great way to spend a Saturday if you're a fan of good indie Americana, country and/or folk-pop music. The festival is in the Dayton, Ohio metropolitan area. Click the links above for tickets and line-up info. One note: KAB will not be performing with Kris; instead he'll be backed by Donnie Reis' band.

Updated: It was a good show for Kris! I hear It's Always You was a highlight. Unfortunately Jonathan Jackson wasn't as "lucky" as a bad storm suspended his show. Post is updated with set list and media (tons of videos and photo albums) after the break..

Freedom Park
Aviano Air Base, Italy

Show and List Preview:
Kris is touring various U.S. military installations in Portugal and Italy June 28 through July 4 to entertain the troops and their families. He's done this before for the USO; this tour is sponsored by Armed Forces Entertainment. The last of the four shows he is doing is at Aviano Air Base in Aviano, Italy. This show is part of an Independence Day celebration and is open to the Italian public if they got their names on the list by June 18! Last year, this event was attended by 4,000 people.

I'll be maintaining a rolling twitter list for this tour, but doing separate show posts. No worries, you won't miss a thing. Do not expect a lot of media though.

Updated: Fantastic set list and some photos after the break...hoping for some media on this one, c'mon Italy!
