Armed Forces Tour

July 2, 2015

Independence Day Celebration
Caserme Ederle
USAG Vicenza, Italy

Entertainment begins 6:30 PM CEST
(12:30 PM EDT)

Kris probably on around 8 PM CEST (2 PM EDT)

Show and List Preview:
Kris is touring various U.S. military installations in Portugal and Italy June 28 through July 4 to entertain the troops and their families. He's done this before for the USO; this tour is sponsored by Armed Forces Entertainment. The third show of the four shows he is doing is on Thursday evening in Vicenza, Italy (west of Venice in northeastern Italy). This show is part of an Independence Day celebration and is open to the public!

I'll be maintaining a rolling twitter list for this tour, but doing separate show posts. No worries, you won't miss a thing. Do not expect a lot of media though.

Updated: According to this post from keyboardist Andrew St. Marie, there were 20,000 in attendance! Some media (photos and IG videos) and a partial set list after the break...
