Some Exciting News & a Few Notes on the Lists

Starting with the next list (tomorrow!), we're going to (hopefully) embed our twitter lists here! My hope is that this will be a fun way for Kris fans to gather and comment while a show is ongoing. Also, sometimes I am just busy with real life, and so this gives me a way to put the list out there when I can't tweet the link from my Twitter account.

A few notes:

  • Lists will only be active for about 24 hours before a show and for a few days afterwards (to be able to see pictures, videos, etc.)
  • Have fun but please be respectful of everyone on the list!
  • If you are on a list and don't want to be, just send a tweet to @KrisAllenLists & we'll take you off.
  • On the other hand, I can't search 24/7, so if I missed adding someone, feel free to tweet that to me too! It's easiest to add them if you just tell me their twitter name, but a status link is ok too.
  • Everyone who helps with the lists is greatly, greatly appreciated!

Throwback Thursday (September 29, 2010)

For this week's edition of #ThrowbackThursday, we take you back to the USO Tour of 2010! Also known as "the overseas trip Kris forgot to bring his hair gel on." This video is from his appearance at the AFNorth International School in Schinnen, The Netherlands.

Some sound issues with this one, but nice overview of his set. Make sure you click around 6:36 and watch them all rock out to LLWD. Enjoy!

Throwback Thursday (September 19, 2009)

Every Thursday, we take a look back at an awesome old Kris video!

Today, one of my personal favorites: Kris performing Man in the Mirror on a Boston rooftop for radio station Mix 104.1 on September 19, 2009. It's just chill and beautiful.

Throwback Thursday (September 13, 2009)

Every Thursday, we take a look back at an awesome old Kris video!

This one of Kris covering Bright Lights by Matchbox 20 is from the Idol tour, September 13, 2009, in Providence, RI. Ah, when Kris was sick. He makes it look actually kind of hot to be sick.

Find a playlist of other Throwback Thursday videos here.

Welcome to the Kris Allen Lists Blog!

Welcome to the new Kris Allen Lists blog! If all goes according to plan, this will be a handy place to host the Twitter lists for Kris' events and watch them together. 

Not sure what Kris Allen Lists is? We're on Twitter @KrisAllenLists. Basically we do Twitter lists for all of Kris Allen's events. It's a fun way for fans to follow what he is doing, and to bring the fandom together. And since he just announced a bunch of tour dates, this is a perfect time to get this blog set up! (Kris' next show as of this posting is September 23, so that will be our first gathering for a list here!)

You'll also notice some handy links to my favorite Kris fan sites on the right, and the Kralendar is embedded below for your use! (Pro tips: Click on the "Google Calendar" link on the bottom to add the Kralendar to your calendars. And click on Agenda to get a nice list of upcoming shows!)

Let me know if you have any suggestions or feedback for the blog! Thanks!
