Pfeiffer Hall
North Central College
Naperville, IL
8:00 PM Central
Opening Act: Elenowen

Show and List Preview:
Kris does his next gig at a college in the outer Chicago suburb of Naperville. Although this was originally booked by Degy and slated for 2014, it was moved to this year and scheduled for the end of May. While that may seem like a bad time to do a college concert, this particular college will still be in class as it doesn't break until June. Also good is that this college is heavily promoting the show via social media to its students. Even better, this particular college show is also available to the general public at a bargain price, so if you are in the Chicago area, you should go! (This may be your only Kris concert this year!)

Our list does indeed include some Kris list regulars, as well as some college students.

Best list in awhile! Updated with setlist, photos, instavideo, recorded audio, tons of gorgeous videos and media after the break...
Updated 1/24/2017 with new video that popped up! Better late than never, right?

Show and List Preview:
This is a big annual festival that Arkansas fans have been begging to book Kris for years, seeing as how he's their hometown boy and all. Finally, the festival has booked him!

Our twitter list to follow the event included many AR fans, who tweeted lots of pic! And it seems that Kris played the same stage he played for his Little Rock Idol Homecoming, and it touched him greatly.

Show and List Preview:
Kris returns to a venue he last performed at in 2013 for what is as of now his only scheduled show for this year for the east coast. I really hope he and his team rethink that. The usual people who go to his New England shows are on the list so you should get video and pictures this time. You can always count on east/best coast Kris fans!

Updated with set list, videos (don't miss the mash-up of Monster with BB King's The Thrill is Gone) and media after the break...

Show and List Preview:
This should be a good show! Kris joins some other excellent singer-songwriters in an acoustic, free concert that is part of an annual outdoor concert series in Nashville. According to its website, "In its initial five years, the Musicians Corner audience has substantially grown in size from 5,000 people in 2010 to over 50,000 in 2014." Nice! Let's hope for great weather and a great turnout. If you are in Nashville, this is free, outdoors, family-friendly and on a Saturday afternoon, so goooo!

For those of us watching the show via Twitter and this post, I am hoping Kris will perform the two new songs he debuted at Tin Pan South's showcase: Waves and the still yet-to-be-videoed-so-let's-get-on-that-Kris-fans Belle Meade Gal. Since Kris has taken a break from regular touring to work on writing songs for the next album, this performance seems like a perfect time to showcase some new original music!
