Letting You In Tour: Requests Granted (Updated)



Thanks to @kristen8108 for an excellent suggestion! She was prepping for her #LettingYouInTour stop and asked for a list of requests that Kris has played so far, so that she wouldn't duplicate!


So here's the list! Very interesting and there was a definite pattern of requests granted. Being a super fan, I admit that I grumbled a bit about some of them (especially the KATA ones) and would have wanted more deep cuts, demos and unreleased material. However, it dawned on me that granting those requests was a great way to Kris to reach out to casual fans and draw them in a bit more.

And I was fortunate and am super grateful to have my VIP request granted (it was Letting You In). It was the highlight actually of my show, so I may go back as time permits and edit this post to add in the VIP requests too. It's tricky because not every VIP song was a request, but I'll try to note the ones that were. If he granted your request at VIP, please let me know what it was.

Bonus! Some were requests and some weren't, but for every VIP song that had a good quality video, @frazzledsoul made mp3s! Click here to access.
