Throwback Thursday: June 12, 2010: Kris Allen Band performs in Cherokee, NC

Every Thursday we take a look back at Kris Allen's career via video.

So four years ago, Kris and his band spent the month of June 2010 on his first headlining tour. The tour took them across the country and provided some of our fondest memories of the Kris Allen Band live. While touring can take place anytime of the year, there is just something special about a summer tour. So I have to admit, I am disappointed it isn't happening this year.

Why no summer tour? Probably because the album release is looking more likely for August? Not to mention, Big Daddy has gotten himself a summer job with another band playing the Warped tour (which wraps up August 3). And there are those weekly emails with new show announcements from my local music venues. They are all up to announcing Fall shows now and are pretty much the most depressing emails I get. Plus a look at the calendar at the bottom of this page will show you one gig in June, nothing in July, but a number of college gigs in late August and early September. Plus of course Lentil Fest. (Tip for the calendar, click the Agenda setting.)

So don't despair even though I've penned this depressing post. I truly believe there will be a tour. Soon. Hopefully not the Kris Allen version of soon. And we do have a show coming up in June on Kris' birthday, June 21. You can read more about it here, and also learn about all the different birthday plans for Kris being put together by fans. If you are in Ohio or Michigan, you should go to his show if you can!

But oh yeah - this was a Throwback Thursday post. Well, it feels like a lifetime waiting for REAL news about this upcoming album and tour from Kris, so let's go with Lifetime from Cherokee, NC, June 12, 2010:
