    Hi girlygirl, Sorry your links are not working, I’m sure you will get it figured out. I’ve been looking forward to this all day, I wanted to share something with Kris fans:

    Kris will be playing the MixFest in Boston next Monday and I just checked out the sponsoring radio station’s website.

    http://mix1041.radio.com/

    It is filled with Kris news, pictures, and videos. With so much frustration about Kris getting the proper promotion, it is terrific to find someone doing it right! There is even a slide show of the season 8 AI Tour and that cute video when Kris taught one of the djs to do the dance that Paula had choreographed for season 8.

    On the main page is a list of “most clicked” features and Kris is right up there. Go give Kris a few more clicks. Plus the post for the MixFest features Kris’s cd cover art (rather than an out of date AI pic)

    Also there is a feature on The Truth where you can VOTE FOR THE TRUTH & send a msg to the radio station to play it more!

    http://mix1041.radio.com/2010/07/27/kris-allen-the-truth/

    mix104.1 has been promoting the MixFest for weeks. They had a week where they just promoted Kris with a chance to play Guitar Hero back stage with Kris. Every time they mention the show they list Kris as one of the headliners and play a bit of LLWD. They also have LLWD and TT both in heavy rotation.

    I was checking the site in particular because Kris played a show for another radio station in Boston where he was the headliner and they streamed it live on the internet. I’m hoping this one will be streamed live also, but no info on that yet.

    The consensus seems to be that Train (or at least Pat M) is the mystery guest who will be performing with Kris at Mixfest on Monday. In fact, someone in tonight’s headlines threa says s/he knows this as a fact because his/her friend works on this event

    Yes, this is a serious question, because I think that there has to be a reason. And I don’t want to believe that he really has a bad feeling about the song.

    I know alot of people love Let It Rain and miss him singing it.Ratna 12 that’s why I asked.And am curious why he never sings it live.

  • girlygirl

    MJ

    Question #1 – can he describe music video, and does he know yet when it will be released

    Question #2 – will there be more dates ended to his tour after Sept. 5th (which is the current end date for the tour)?

    Question #3 – if he went back into the recording studio now, how many new songs would he say he has ready to go?

    Question #4/#5 – will we ever hear the song he wrote with Mat Karney? will he please play some of his songs off Brand New Shoes before the end of this tour?

    Question #6 – what does he hope to do differently on album #2 than he did with his debut album?

    Question for MJ:

    Will Kris bring the whole band when he sings overseas for the troops in September ?

  • ross

    Questions for Kris: Does he know when he’ll be performing for the troops, and will the whole band be going along?

    What was it like to see Paul McCartney in concert?

    Is Katy going to be joining him for more stops on the tour?

    Great for you. I’m sure that he will be with the whole band considering the lineup. Just guessing.

    I’m guessing the whole band will be there, but has anybody heard defintiely one was or the other?

    MJ

    Another couple questions for Kris. How does the band come up with the new arrangements they do for the songs to keep them fresh,. And how many times do they rehearse them before they feel comfoable performing them live?

    Also — we know he writes a lot with Cale. has he written any songs with any of the other guys in the band yet?

    MJ, Questions…

    Can you ask if he will sing BWCU again – he hasn’t been singing it live lately.

    Also he’s been hinting that the tour might get extended.. Any details on that?

    Any chance he will come up to Canada/Europe/Asia again?

  • Elliegrll

    MJ, questions for Kris

    1. Which tour stop has been the most memorable.

    2. Which of the songs on your album best represents who he is, and why?

    3. What would be his choice for the third single.

    4. Does he take a different approach with the smaller acoustic sets than he does with concerts that are with the full band and in front of bigger crowds.

    5. Would he change anything about any of the songs on the album.

    6. Are there any plans to do a college tour.

    7. Lyrically speaking, which song on the album means the most to him, and why?

    Yes, and I saw Chris Torres real close and he was a charmer that one. When he smiles, ugh. The whole band is a winner.

  • JMatt

    MJ – for Kris – Will we ever see his lovely and talented band in one of his music videos? (Please?)

    When (not if, when) are he and Keith Urban getting in the studio together?

    Does he ever think about getting his own real bed in the back of the bus, or is he just too darn humble to ask?

  • girlygirl

    FaithfulFan

    This person was probably dancing to whatever song and Kris came over to her side of the stage and did some hip wiggling moves or something, like he tends to do

  • girlygirl
  • hoosiermama

    MJ, for Kris:

    Will his album and singles be released in Australia? Any plans to tour there , perhaps with Keith Urban?

    Also, will he be recording a song with Keith? They sound so good together!

    Thanks for asking!

  • ilovekrisallen39

    Ratna 12 I don’t know why but it took me the longest to warm up to Torres.But now I just love him.Cale I loved from the beginning and Andrew is just so wow to me.Just love the way he plays that guitar and makes those faces he makes while his playing it.

    I just saw the newest schedule for Kris and he practically sings everyday in the month of August.

    MJ, for Kris:

    Will his album and singles be released in Australia? Any plans to tour there , perhaps with Keith Urban?

    Hoosiermama I could hug you for asking this question & I echo it. Kris may not know but it would be great to find out why his CD & singles haven’t been released in Australia – when David Archuletta’s were ? [as he is also on Jive]

    I also would like to know if he will play BWCU again soon on tour as its my favourite from his album?

    Thanks MJ for passing on the questions & there are some great ones so I hope Kris is able to answer them?

    Thanks also almondean88 for the links to that site sounds like a Kris feast there. I’ll check it out when there’s less Kris news[ I could have done with this the last couple of days!!]

    Thanks again girlygirl for this new thread . Lots of enthusiasm for the whole band tonight which is great!!

  • Boffo the Wonder Sheep

    MJ: Question for Kris: What’s the last book you’ve had time to read? (He had recommended A Long Way Gone a while back and I enjoyed it greatly)

    Girlygirl – thanks for the heads up about Kris’ Bube’s Brewery Thursday gig! I knew he might do something with FM97, but not the venue (I think you have to win tix). I host a weekly trivia show there, so maybe I’ll get to see him. I’m also going to Hershey Friday night, but I’m like 20 rows back or so. Hoping he’ll do SMAYA with Chris!

  • Ratna12

    Glad that _DiscoRodeo didn’t copy Kris on some of her twits lol

    I’m still amazed how many people are not only fans but go to concerts of both Kris and the runner up.
    When I was lining up to see Kris and heard people talking, they basically said that yeah that they saw both top 2 concerts and can not wait for more of the top 2.

    No wonder that there is no money left to go to the season 9 concerts

    doesn’t look like Kris did any fan stuff after the show. I wonder if they are flying to Boston tonight?

    ok. thanks for letting me know in advance. I’ll post the threads.
    For 8/7 and 8/8, not sure i’ll be able to since i’m seriously considering going to Atlantic city :D
    I’ll see him opening on 09/04 but this is the closest to Mtl he’s going to headline.
    I would be driving … is there anyone here who would like to be picked up and go with me on the way there?

    Mtlfan, please go it will be awesome, and i heard lots of kris’ avid fans will be going.
    girlygirl, have fun, hope this will make up to the sd concert you were not able to go.
    question for those in the know, for concert like this and his other previous six flags gigs does kris and kab get paid and if yes how much?
    i just really want for kris to earn well because it stuck me that during some of his earlier interviews during and after ai he always say that his first and foremost thankful that he will now be able to make a living out of music/singing.

  • linsmile

    Mtlfan – Oh I hope you get to go to AC!! That would be great!!

    Since you posted that last thread – w/Kris supporting Keith Urban – ugh, CA but I can’t remember the name of the place – I just wanted to suggest that you tag it so it goes in the Kris Allen archives. Hope you don’t mind the suggestion (or just nvm if you already did this).

    ETA – Hi arwen! (waving across to the Phillipine Islands, right?) I know there are people on these threads that know the specifics about how artists in Kris’ position get paid and I hope someone answers with more detail. But, of course it depends on how you define “make a living” and “earning well.” With how I define it, I think it’s safe to say that if Kris continues to be wise with his career and finances he has already made himself (and Katy) a fine living for years to come.

  • Mtlfan

    MJ – Questions for Kris:

    1. Which female artist would you love to collaborate with?

    2. Out of the seven dwarfs, who do you identify the most with?

    3. When would be your ideal release date of a second album?

    4. What’s one thing you would change about American Idol?

    5. What’s your favorite thing about your fans?

    6. Would your second album sound similar to your current one or would you want to throw more suprises?

  • Margie

    doesn’t look like Kris did any fan stuff after the show. I wonder if they are flying to Boston tonight?

    Girlygirl, With most of the other theme park concerts, security has shut down signing etc. really quickly. Supposedly it has something with wanting to close the park by a certain time and needing to get the band and their equimpment out of there.

  • arwen

    hi linsmile :) yes i’m from the philippines.
    my definition of “making a living ” and “earning well” for kris would be for him having his own home and all the other basics plus some little luxuries, well i guess we should not worry of his finances because he and katy seems to be wise spender, what with a $3 belt eh :)
    another question, i would like to purchase the elephant shirt for me and my daughters (i think the smallest size can fit my 7 and 5 years old daughters already). i have never purchase anything in the net using my credit card so forgive me for my ignorance, am i allowed tp purshase even if i’m not a us resident? will there be additional charges for shipping? i have friends and relatives in california and illinois who can buy it for me but i’m hesitant and a bit shy that they will find out of my kris allen obsession :)

  • linsmile

    Hello smeggs. Glad you’re enjoying the shirt. :)

    mikejam – more great questions!

    You reminded me that I also want to know about Kris’ second album and I like your question, but I want to see if he’ll say what the surprises might be…so,

    MJ – Question(s) for Kris –

    How will second album compare to the current one? In what ways will it be different and in what ways will it be the same?

  • arwen

    Mj, not really a question but please tell kris that his fans in asia wants him to come back for another series of shows.

  • linsmile

    arwen – How about having someone include shirts in a balikbayan box!?! Yep, I know what that is – one of my best friends is from the Philippines (notice I spelled it correctly now thanks to you!). Anyway, I’m not totally serious because I don’t know that much about those boxes.

    But, I looked at the following link. At the bottom of the page they have a phone number for orders outside of the US. You could call and see how much the shipping would be and if it’s worth it to you.

  • arwen

    haha linsmile, you know about the balikbayan box! well for us filipinos with relatives and friends in the us they usually send us all the goodies from there stuffed in big boxes (the balikbayan box) you know we love anything and everything imported.
    i’m seriously considering asking my friend to buy me but for the meantime i’ll check the link you posted first, thanks for it.
    since i’m having a lazy sunday afternoon here, i will be patiently waiting for videos to pop out.

    Oh it would be great if you end up going to AC. Just please let MJ know so she can either set up the threads herself or find someone to fill in for us :)

  • Ratna12

    Mtlfan: if you can get tickets to a headlining concert this year, you should go.

    One of the reason that I forced myself to go this year is because I’m afraid that the setlist will be different next year. I’m so glad that I could hear live some of the covers. Probably Kris will still sing his own songs, but some of the covers like Maybe, Falling Slowly mashup, Don’t look back in anger or even Heartless. Who knows if he will still sing those after his second album is released.

    Wow, I’m looking at the future already.

  • girlygirl

    I just posted a handful of really cool pictures from tonight

  • arwen

    girlygirl, thanks for posting those pics.
    the lighting was good and sweaty kris is hot!!!

  • Ratna12

    Oh My God those pictures !!!

    The fourth picture from the top (excluding the thread Anthology pic) is….whatever.
    And when I was in the pit right in front of his mic at Reno, Kris had so many poses like that, even though I’m sure it was not deliberate on his part….or maybe it was, just to make the girls crazy. Who knows ?

    And I remember somebody (maybe Mtlfan) asking why there were no twitting – we were all transfixed by Kris.

  • shanba

    “Hi” everyone! Just popping in to see how Kris’s concert went. Looks like you all had a lot of laughs tonight…sorry I missed all the fun. I am out of town for a few days (mini vacation with my family) but I will try to check in. Great pictures of Kris…so adorable and HOT…oh my…yes…oh my goodness he is so yummy and cute! Thanks for posting those…pleasant dreams!

  • Sv

    MJ

    What musical artist is he listening to right now and has he discovered any new and exciting musicians recently? Basically, I want music recommendations from Kris (like Jim C does on his twitter) because this habit of always searching and listening to new music is the best thing that I got from the whole season 8 of AI.

    Also, if somebody tells Kris he has fans in Russia and Poland, that would be great too. :)

  • JMatt

    Can anybody translate this?

    Playing catch up this morning and just read all the posts from last nights concert. Sounds like it was both fun and amazing. Someone please buy Kris some decent belts!

    FaithfulFan, I speak fluent typonese. The Twitterer said, ‘Danced with me. Oh my God’

  • FaithfulFan

    twigla thanks, get it now. At first I thought the last 5 words were abbreviations for phrases, similar to wgwg. That was so sweet of Kris to dance with her. Definitely an omg moment for her!

    Oh, and the above pictures are pretty darn sexy! I totally agree the shirt is a keeper!

    Ha ha ha on the plaid tweet! I always wondered why some people made fun of his wearing plaid during Idol — it’s obviously what young folks wear. My nephews wear plaid all the time. He’s finally vindicated :)

    Kris has himself another official Top 20 hit. The Truth is #19 on the published Hot AC chart \o/ \o/ \o/ \o/

    judes–I was thinking of you with my question, so I’ll accept that hug!! :-) I really do think a tour in Australia w/Keith would be a great idea!

  • http://MJO judes

    Thanks for that girlygirl. Now if we could just have the video – I am sure this will help TT go even higher !!

    Yep I totally agree . Maybe if they can work on putting a single out together that could become more of a reality?

  • ilovekrisallen39

    Yes for Kris that’s so fantastic.

  • Mtlfan

    JMatt

    Was away today!

    Yes i need a ticket. I took my decision and i’m going :D
    I was going to buy online but if you have one (extra ticket?), I’ll buy it from you.
    I should know if i’ll need another one Monday or Tuesday and will reserve online i guess unless you have more to sell.
    Thanks again

  • Mtlfan

    that’s a funny reply to the plaid shirts pic:

    @KrisAllen My goodness u need to keep ur plaids seperate cuz apparently they mate..

    Ratna12 – it’s about time LOL

    Yes, it is about time.

    Sometimes when there is an interview and Kris is asked on WHY he went to singing, you can see that there is a slight hesitation in his answering before he said that he feels that he has the talent to do it.

    Own it Kris, you have an incredible talent and that IT factor.

    *
    Congratulations for another top 20 for Kris. I’m excited.

    And yay for Mtlfan. But now you know that we need a report on your experience, right.

  • Mtlfan

    hi Ratna, ah recap! for sure, I’ll do one :)

    ..and YAY for another top 20 hit for Kris!! o/

    This original song “I Was Played” by Kris just surfaced. I hadn’t heard this one. I assume it’s from BNS. (I may be the only that hasn’t heard it tho.)

  • hoosiermama

    Thanks mermichelle for posting that interview. That was really fun! Of course Kris has Keith Urban’s phone number! Haha! But Kara’s–that was a surprise (they haven’t written together have they?). That was very good advice from Jamie Foxx about it only taking 1 minute to take a picture with a fan, so do it–means so much to them/us. Glad Kris took that to heart. He’s so adorable!

  • Sv

    hglightly53

    You might not be the only one but it is an old song and it is from BNS. One of my favourites.

    This sounds like it was a great concert.  When did Kris’ belt snap? lol  Is that in one of the video clips?  That must’ve been embarrassing. XD:)
