Concert: October 19, 2017: Kalamazoo, MI

Poster for Kris Allen/Matt Giraud at State Theatre October 19 8:30 PM

October 19, 2017
State Theatre
Kalamazoo, MI
8:30 PM EDT

Opening act: Matt Giraud

Wow, a Kratt concert! (Matt Giraud was Kris' good friend in American Idol season 8 days and is a hometown Kalamazoo boy.)  This should be a fun show for those who go. Matt seems excited and is taking requests.

And it's a total bargain - $10 or only $3.50 if you are a Western Michigan University student. Maybe bring them some Taco Bell as requested in the video above. I do know of one regular video-taker who is going. ;)

Updated 11/2/2017: Yes, we did indeed get a White Chocolate reunion! Videos (more just added!), setlist, photos all after the break! Updated 11/2 to add a great review.
