Comfort and Joy Tour: December 16, 2016: Maumelle, AR


Comfort and Joy Tour
December 16, 2016
Maumelle Performing Arts Center
Maumelle, AR
7:30 PM EST

Preview:
For some unknown reason, it was a state secret between Kris and Jim's camps that Kris was going to appear in the show for his parent's hometown. Kris only announced it today, the day of the show (hence this last-second post). That's kind of dumb marketing in my opinion, but hey, no one asked me. Anyway the show is not yet sold out, so go see Kris and the tour tonight, Arkansas! Ticket link above.

Updated 12/18/2016: Not much media; only one picture actually. Not a surprise. Tracy rejoined the show.

Pre-Show/Event Press and Publicity:
Expected Set List; Videos of performance (if any) will be linked after song
Personally, I'd keep an eye on Papa Allen's Facebook page
