Concert: October 19, 2017: Kalamazoo, MI

Poster for Kris Allen/Matt Giraud at State Theatre October 19 8:30 PM

October 19, 2017
State Theatre
Kalamazoo, MI
8:30 PM EDT

Opening act: Matt Giraud

Wow, a Kratt concert! (Matt Giraud was Kris' good friend in American Idol season 8 days and is a hometown Kalamazoo boy.)  This should be a fun show for those who go. Matt seems excited and is taking requests.

And it's a total bargain - $10 or only $3.50 if you are a Western Michigan University student. Maybe bring them some Taco Bell as requested in the video above. I do know of one regular video-taker who is going. ;)

Updated 10/22/2017: Yes, we did indeed get a White Chocolate reunion! Videos (more just added!), setlist, photos all after the break!

College Show: October 6, 2017: Vanderbilt University, Nashville

It was no Goo Goo Dolls play the historic lawn of a historic university's bicentennial (although how I wish Kris would copy the Goo Goo Dolls who regularly stream their live performances on Facebook), but Kris played Vanderbilt University's homecoming weekend last night.

No advance publicity, so sorry for the late post. Whatever media I find will be posted after the jump.

Somethin' About Christmas Tour by Kris Allen!

Kris has announced the Somethin' About Christmas tour! Mostly east coast and small venues. Should be fun! The tickets go on sale Friday, September 8. I'll keep this post updated with any news and of course we will have show posts for these shows.

College Show: September 9, 2017: University of Delaware, Newark, DE

Concert (Open to public)

Doors open 8:30 PM EDT

Kris has another college show, only this college (the University of Delaware) is awesome and opened it up to the general public! So if he busts out another new cover, as he is prone to do at college shows and concerts in smaller cities, we should actually get video this time thanks to our friends Ang and Kira.

Will post set list, media etc here after the show. In the meantime, thoughts and prayers with everyone in Florida right now and this weekend. Hurricane Irma is serious business and I hope everyone from there will be safe.

Updated 9/10/2017: Sorry for delay in updating. Connectivity issues on my end. Heard it was a great show with a new cover of Niall Horan's Slow Hands (mashed-up with Waves) and a new interesting arrangement on Loves Me Not. Videos and photos after the jump.

College Show: August 19, 2017: Augustana College, Rock Island, IL

Welcome Week Concert
Augustana College, Lower Quad
Rock Island, IL
8 PM Central (Kris on at 9 PM after a DJ opener)

Kris has a college show scheduled at Augustana College in Rock Island, Illinois (near the border with Iowa). I think it is intended to be a student event, but don't have firm info on whether the general public can go. Anything we get (and there's normally not much with college shows) will go in this post.

Updated 8/21/2017: Turned out to be a great show, and we got the premiere of a cover of Oasis' Wonderwall (an audience request from a student and a long-desired cover for me). Partial set list and mini-videos inside. Many thanks to @SnapCracklyPop for preserving Kris' instastories for us.
