Getaway Tour: April 4, 2017: Phoenix, AZ

Concert with Parachute
April 4, 2017
Crescent Ballroom
Phoenix, AZ
Doors 7:30 PM, Show 8:30 PM (Arizona time (11:30 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. See the Dallas post for what we know so far of Kris'  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). So expect a smaller, lower-key experience, but I am hoping for some great collaborations as Kris' poppier stuff is very similar to what Parachute does.

The tour continues Tuesday night in Phoenix, Arizona. Information for this specific show can be found after the break!

Updated 4/14/2017: A BIG THANK YOU to the fans in Phoenix for getting a full set list and set of videos, plus some nice photos! Personally, I am hoping Kris will flesh that set list out a little more for future shows. Only 8 songs (including EOTS), with two covers and not much LYI material. I'd like to see him focus on originals with such limited time available to best showcase himself to Parachute fans. So far they've been really appreciative of him in their live tweets but I think they'd be very open to his original material. (Updated 4/14 to add new IG video of LLWD.)
