Getaway Tour: April 27, 2017: Nashville, TN


Concert with Parachute
April 27, 2017
Exit/In
Nashville, TN
8:30 PM CDT

Preview:
Kris is on a month-long acoustic tour with his good friends in the pop rock band Parachute. Parachute, who is fantastic about fan service, is letting their fans vote on their set list. Kris has keyboardist Andrew St. Marie in tow and he is sharing a bus with Parachute. The venues are smaller than either act filled last tour (apparently they are favorite venues of Parachute's), and so far the crowds have been lively and showing up early to line up. I've got Kris' expected set list in the post; Will post what I can find for Parachute's set list after the show (since it's changing each time).

The tour concludes on Thursday night when Parachute and Kris return to their current home base of Nashville for one last sold out show. Information for this specific show can be found after the break!

Updated 4/28/2017: Found a ton of good photos, some videos, set lists. All of it is after the break...

The tour continues Tuesday night in Carrboro, NC, near Raleigh. Kris did a fantastic show here during the Letting You In tour and the NC fans were awesome about sharing video. Information for this specific show can be found after the break! If you are going tonight, pay attention to local media; my news says that there are some flooding issues in that area today due to all the annoying rain in the mid-Atlantic we're having.

Updated 4/27/2017: Lots of photos but only LLWD videos. The show was packed and so hopefully some more will turn up! What I have found is after the break. If you can help with set list confirmation, please do so.

I've got Kris' expected set list in the post; Will post what I can find for Parachute's set list after the show (since it's changing each time).

The tour continues Sunday night in Charlottesville, VA at a historic venue on the lovely Downtown Mall. I notice the show is sponsored by an excellent local radio station, 106.1 the Corner, who did a fantastic interview with Kris the last time he played C-ville and they told me that they are trying to do an interview related to this show on this Sunday afternoon around 4 pm. Plus Charlottesville is Parachute's hometown, so hoping that the crowd will be extra into this show.

This is the show I'm going to! So for once I will not need set list help. ;P I'm bringing one of my best friends who is not in Kris fandom; curious what she will think. She's into EDM and punk and this will be her first WGWG concert. Have to say she did seem a little reassured about what she's gotten into after she watched a Facebook video of Will from Parachute crowd-surfing. ;P We always have a blast when we go out anyway. (She says she'll help with typical show-sharing duties since acoustic WGWGs don't lend themselves to pogoing.) Plus it's a girlfriend getaway to one of our favorite towns, so we are really looking forward to this! From my years living here, April is definitely the time to visit Charlottesville! Of course, with Kris' visiting, the deluge of rain is forecasted - hoping it won't slow us down too much!

So yes, the excitement is real. Information for this specific show can be found after the break!

Updated 4/28/2017: Finally recovered enough from what was a really fun show to update the post! Full video stream link for Kris' set, set lists for both acts and some IG videos inside, plus my review. Updated 4/28 to add the interview/songs Kris performed for 106.1 the Corner!

The tour continues Friday night in Washington, DC at this sold out show (not surprising since both acts have sold out larger venues in this town; I was honestly surprised they booked it at this place). Be aware that this particular venue is not near public transportation and parking might be tough. I'd use Lyft, Uber or take a cab. (If you are wondering, I am DC-area but I'm not going to this one; decided to go to Sunday's show in Virginia instead.)

Information for this specific show can be found after the break!

Updated 4/26/2017:  Confirmed set list, plus some great videos and photos; thanks to Kira, Eric and Olivia, DC will be awarded #gavegoodlist! See it all after the break... Updated 4/26 with a new set of videos discovered on Facebook.

Updated 4/22/2017: Not too much from this show yet. A couple of nice photos plus some short videos after the break (including a cringey one of girls googling "Chris Allen" while he sings Faster Shoes; I guess it's good that they were moved to google?)... If you were there and can help with set list, please do! Thanks!

Kris is on a month-long acoustic tour with his good friends in the pop rock band Parachute. Parachute, who is fantastic about fan service, is letting their fans vote on their set list. See the Dallas post for what we know so far of Kris'  set list. Kris has keyboardist Andrew St. Marie in tow and he is sharing a bus with Parachute. The venues are smaller than either act filled last tour (apparently they are favorite venues of Parachute's). So expect a smaller, lower-key experience, but I am hoping for some great collaborations as Kris' poppier stuff is very similar to what Parachute does.

The tour continues Tuesday night in Phoenix, Arizona. Information for this specific show can be found after the break!

Updated 4/14/2017: A BIG THANK YOU to the fans in Phoenix for getting a full set list and set of videos, plus some nice photos! Personally, I am hoping Kris will flesh that set list out a little more for future shows. Only 8 songs (including EOTS), with two covers and not much LYI material. I'd like to see him focus on originals with such limited time available to best showcase himself to Parachute fans. So far they've been really appreciative of him in their live tweets but I think they'd be very open to his original material. (Updated 4/14 to add new IG video of LLWD.)
