Getaway Tour: April 21, 2017: Washington, DC

Concert with Parachute
April 21, 2017
Rock and Roll Hotel
Washington, DC
Doors 7:00 PM | Show 8:00 PM EDT

Kris is on a month-long acoustic tour with his good friends in the pop rock band Parachute. Parachute, who is fantastic about fan service, is letting their fans vote on their set list. Kris has keyboardist Andrew St. Marie in tow and he is sharing a bus with Parachute. The venues are smaller than either act filled last tour (apparently they are favorite venues of Parachute's), and so far the crowds have been lively and showing up early to line up. I've got Kris' expected set list in the post; Will post what I can find for Parachute's set list after the show (since it's changing each time).

The tour continues Friday night in Washington, DC at this sold out show (not surprising since both acts have sold out larger venues in this town; I was honestly surprised they booked it at this place). Be aware that this particular venue is not near public transportation and parking might be tough. I'd use Lyft, Uber or take a cab. (If you are wondering, I am DC-area but I'm not going to this one; decided to go to Sunday's show in Virginia instead.)

Information for this specific show can be found after the break!

Updated 4/26/2017:  Confirmed set list, plus some great videos and photos; thanks to Kira, Eric and Olivia, DC will be awarded #gavegoodlist! See it all after the break... Updated 4/26 with a new set of videos discovered on Facebook.
