Comfort and Joy Tour: December 3, 2016: River Forest, IL


Comfort and Joy Tour
December 3, 2016
Lund Auditorium 
Dominican University Performing Arts Center
River Forest, IL
7:30 PM CST
Preview:
Kris spends two nights in the same state as the Comfort and Joy Tour moves slightly east to another Chicago suburb.

If you haven't already seen my post on the Jim Brickman tour, do look it over - my coverage will be different than you are used to. I'm not doing lists, and I wouldn't expect live tweets, fan videos or streams - there's a strict anti-recording, anti-phone use policy in effect for most of the show.

Updated 12/6/2016. A nice ninja video of A Little Bit of Christmas! Well done River Forest!
Pre-Show/Event Press and Publicity:
Expected Set List; Videos of performance (if any) will be linked after song
