  1. We now know where Kris gets his sense of humor from. lol

    allen_kimberly
    I don’t know about the new music video….. If only it could have been shot in the desert.

  2. I ‘m here, second row, Cale ‘s side, but basically in the middle.

  3. I love the AWM video. Seriously, could this week get any better? So many Kris goodies. Kris is ending his tour in style!!

  4. Great couple of days for Kris fans. I laughed when I saw the Mama Allen tweet, she is so funny.

  5. There will be a lot of detention slips handed out tomorrow at Coronado High School. lol

    Tinocourygroup i know so many people that are sneaking in our school tomorrow to see kris allen. lol

  6. Even though I think the word “awesome” is overused, I gotta say that the last couple of days have been AWESOME for KA fans!! Love, love, love the AWM video! Does anyone have any insight as to whether the video was the super-secret surprise Jim C. teased about?

  7. aw FaithfulFan, yes he’s ending indeed his tour in style.
    What a fun and great video!
    The fact that they use the actual AWM recording on the album makes it for me an “official video”!

  8. Awe can I just say that after the day am having that AWM video just made my day.Wish it was the actually video,but it’s still so cool.Loved the whole video. It’s so much fun to watch. That’s why we love him so much. Because he really loves his fans and this video just proves the point.

  9. Kris is about to start

    I can’t wait till he headlines too. I have never YET have the pleasure of hearing Kris live, but hopefully next year.

  24. h2oconvo Overheard a guy talking right after Kris’s set: “That was awesome. I really enjoyed that!”

    megums Kris Allen just closed with a rockin’ cover of The Beatles “Come Together.”

  25. CharcoalEyes Just heard a few people mention they were surprised how good Kris was. #Milkshake

    FourteenPlums Lots of swagger tonight. I don’t know what @KrisAllen did last night but he should keep doing it because he and the band sounded awesome

    FourteenPlums During the end of EWTRW his mic startes cutting out and he was all “this mic definitely doesn’t rule the world” lollll

  26. in_youreyes I have pic of epic cowlick LOL! Will upload to my girl @TimeOfDaffodil’s smugmug later. Vid of EWTRTW too ;)

  27. yep

    CharcoalEyes Just heard a few people mention they were surprised how good Kris was. #Milkshake

  28. LOL Dudes rushing the stage to touch Kris’ hand during Come Together.

    It’s unusual (as far as I know) when the opening act gets so much love from the audience, and there’s been a lot of that on this tour. That’s one reason I’ve enjoyed this tour so much.

  29. I see that the AWM video is on USA Today Idol Chatter, Yahoo Music Reality Rocks, examiner.com by Belinda Thomas, Vote for the Worst, and ONTD (they even have a gif of Kris doing the shimmy shake lol) and the majority of commenters say they like this vid better than llwd or tt vids. I’m sure it will be popping up on other sites soon and I probably missed some. This video is going to be good exposure for Kris. The article with the vid on ainow.org reports that Zocialtv says the video is the 4th most tweeted video today. Go AWM!!!!

  30. A girl asked before Kris started if we can go to the barricade, and the guard said no.
    I was in the second row with 2 girls I met in San Diego.
    When CT started and we saw Kris coming down, I jumped the chair in front of me and 1 girl also jumped too. Good thing there was nobody in that chair.
    We saw Kris coming from the right side and people hand slapped him.
    Once he got to me, of course there is no way that I’m satisfied with a hand slap, so I hugged him. YAY !!!
    And the girl from San Diego besides me, hugged him also. SCORE !!
    And he goes along the line to the left. So many people taking pictures too.

  31. When CT started and we saw Kris coming down, I jumped the chair in front of me and 1 girl also jumped too.

    ratna12 LOL You go girl!!!!

    Awesome! Good for you and the other girl!

  34. KrisAllenOfficial also.

    Are you saying that that’s the most surprising one of all? LOL, (since it usually takes them forever to post things). It’s also already up on Kris’ facebook page.

  35. Also on Kris Allen Addicts and Watercooler convo.

    ETA Fourteenplums is at the concert but I’m sure it will be on that site also.

  36. :)
    jambajess So @jambajim about to sing live like we’re dying. Wow. #krim

    FYI, jambajess is jim’s wife.

  37. Sounds like another great show. Can’t wait for the videos. I also would like to thank those who do these concert threads. You guys are awesome!

  38. Yay for Ratna12 getting a Kris hug! Did he smell like essence of rock star? :-)

  39. hoosiermama:

    Yay for Ratna12 getting a Kris hug! Did he smell like essence of rock star?

    :(. I don’t know.
    I forgot to breathe.

  40. I got to Hilton at Universal City by 3:00 pm and I took a quick shower and changed. When the girl that will be staying with me knocked on the door, I opened the door, and we both laughed because both of us were wearing Kris’ Red Guitar black shirts. We then met another girl that will drive us to Las Vegas. She was the one that bought the tickets and later on got them upgraded to the second row seats. She did the live stream during Red Guitar. We found out that majal1 couldn’t make it to LA, but she will rest so she can go to Las Vegas Friday.

    I think the capacity of Gibson is about 6000 people. And it is not an outdoor theater anymore. It is indoor now, good thing because it was cold at night. Well, cold for us Southern Cal people, I guess. I’m not sure if the capacity is still 6000. 
    It was pretty empty when Alyssa started, but then people started coming in.
    Alyssa was so cute, she said that she was looking forward coming to LA, so that she can sing Cali, Cali, Cali.

    By the time Kris started, maybe a little bit less than half already there.
    He got loud cheers though when KAB started to come out. Kris was wearing a white shirt (YAY !) with a leather jacket. Second row seat was really good. Closeup of Kris. He did not get to hand slapped people from the stage because there was a space between the stage and the barricade in front of the first row seats, and the guard said, no standing behind the barricade if you are not a first row people.

    Somehow Kris music is clearer to my ears than LifeHouse maybe because Lifehouse’s is louder ? I went to the back during Lifehouse and it was better.
    Anyway, my point is that Kris was really great.  Clear wonderful tone of voice.
    No wonder he impressed many Lifehouse fans. 
    He did not banter much at all tonight. He just introduced AWM as the newest single from the album and he started teaching us to sing. He said that maybe people are afraid to sing because they don’t want other people to hear their voices, but he doesn’t care.

    One of the highlight was after AWM, he went to the back a little bit and began taking off his jacket. :) I got to see Kris in a white T-shirt. I was happy. ARMS !!

    The mic failed at the end of EWTRTW and he just smiled and changed to Torres mic and then pointed to the mic and said that mic doesn’t want to rule the world. Amazing !, he was just so quick witted.

    Just want to say that plenty of people were standing up especially during AWM, LLWD and CT. LLWD got a loud cheer, people recognize the song. Great.
    And then he started CT and started coming down the stage from the middle which is to my right. I just jumped over the chair in front of me. The girl next to me from San Diego jumped too. He was hand slapping people, when Kris came to me, I just opened my arms and hugged him. the girl beside me saw that, she also hugged Kris.
    And he was stucked at the end of the line with people crowding, taking pictures.
    At the end of the song, the girl next to me and I just jumped up and down, giddy getting the hugs. It was a good thing too, because I guess nobody could find Kris or the bus afterward.
     
    The one thing that was weird was one of the girl asked the merchandise seller and they said that they did not have Kris CDs. I don’t know why and I forget if Kris usually have CDs sold as opener or not. And I bought the hoody sweatshirt. I don’t know why since it was so expensive. I just have this need to support Kris. :)

    OK, that’s it for now. I have to get up early Friday to go to Vegas, good thing I don’t have to drive.
    I’m not looking forward to hours of standing in General Admission though. 

  41. ratna12 Am so glad you got to get a hug. I felt the same way after I saw him. But I did remember to smell him but barely. And boy that guy smells to damn manly,that’s for sure.I just love him going into the crowd for CT,it’s such a rock star type of thing to do.I wish he was somewhere close we’re I could have seen him at least one more time.Hopefully next time. Glad you had such a wonderful time. And Kris and The Band getting all this love is why I love that he also does open for other bands.We know the ones that go to headlining shows are already fans so when he opens its nice to know alot of people never know who he is or things his not going to be good and come away fans.And I love that they might not know who Kris is but knows LLWD.

  42. lizbiz8
    Hey @LFraddy thx for the AAAmazeballs pimp job the last couple of days #amazeballs

  43. FourteenPlums
    Pretty badass show from @krisallen and @krisallenband @calevis24. Apparently the buses are under an invisibility cloak; no one can find them

  44. Bigdaddysays Well no sign of @theellenshow. Total bummer. Tried to get tix to Harry Potter but the theatre people were D-bags. Not my night so far…

  45. CharcoalEyes @KrisAllen I must say, you and @krisallenband TORE IT UP tonight. Please do it again tomorrow. :)

    hazel_eyes11 @KrisAllen @krisallenband Thank you guys for an amazing show! Can’t wait to see you rock Vegas, I expect lots of melted faces!

    summerdaze_ @krisallen @krisallenband you guys were amaaaazing tonight, see you again tomorrow!

  46. snapcracklypop @KrisAllen @krisallenband @calevis24 You guys were amazing. Really can’t wait someday do a solo show so there’d be more songs. See you soon!

  47. As of 6:30 this AM Kris’ video has had over 9200 hits. Not bad for less than 12 hours. Go Kris!!

  48. Yay for Ratna12 getting a Kris hug! Did he smell like essence of rock star

    . I don’t know.
    I forgot to breathe.

    Hahahaha! This made my morning! This time I actually DID lol!

  49. I’m glad that Kris made that AWM video. It is great exposure for AWM and his words saying about his fans. Awww. love how it shows KAB has so much fun and Kris’ dancing is so adorable.

    Some of Kris fans from went to the Citywalk (the outdoor mall in Universal) last night to catch the Harry Potter showing and I guess the movie stopped in the middle. That is crazy to do that after the concert knowing that many will have to drive to Vegas today.

  50. Thanks for the videos! sounds like another great concert :).

    @LasVegasLisa: I am so excited that American Idol WINNER @krisallen is stopping by Midday TODAY! #Vegas He will perform too!!!! :-)

    LasVegasLisa @RLM1919 not sure what @krisallen is going to sing. but i think it might be “Alright with Me”

  51. As of 6:30 this AM Kris’ video has had over 9200 hits. Not bad for less than 12 hours. Go Kris!!

    Almost 11,000 now. I hate to say how many of those hits were mine…hehe Love it!

  52. Almost 11,000 now. I hate to say how many of those hits were mine…hehe Love it!

    I’m not sure your multiple replays will count as multiple hit though.. not sure how the count works..

  53. Regardless of if you’re a Kris fan, I would think everyone would respect the quality of the video and the initiative that Kris and the band took to make it.

    They timed the release to correlate with Kris’ LA publicity junket, and it’s been picked up by several online blogs. The video has a strong chance of making inroads in the viral landscape, which is something that all Idols need to do in order to compete with other singers/musicians.

    You can’t always wait for your record company to do things–you have to get in front of your own PR plan. This could carry over into 2011 and really help Kris remain on lots of minds as he works on his second album.

    While the video is a fun treat for the fans, I appreciate even more on a business level. Smart move, Kris!

  54. While the video is a fun treat for the fans, I appreciate even more on a business level. Smart move, Kris!

    I couldn’t agree more. I’ve always said that Kris’ promotion falls on him, 19 and Jive. The best thing about what he’s done over the past week is that he’s allowed people to see who he is, and on his terms.

  55. I’m not sure your multiple replays will count as multiple hit though.. not sure how the count works..

    Oh justapixy, I really don’t care about the hits. I’ve just been watching it because I enjoy it! It makes me happy!

    But there’s no denying that it was a smart move by Kris.

  56. I agree that in addition to the video being an awesome thank you gift to the fans- it is a smart move because it is a well made video that shows Kris’s fun side and can create positive buzz about AWM and Kris
    I hope it will become the official video.

  57. We are on our way to Vegas, including majal1. She is cracking us all up.
    We are going to have so much fun.

  58. You can’t always wait for your record company to do things–you have to get in front of your own PR plan. This could carry over into 2011 and really help Kris remain on lots of minds as he works on his second album.

    This is a very interesting and good point. It reminds me of Kris telling Billy Bush how much he has learned about the business over the past year. I believe with recording and putting out an album and touring so much, Kris is once again showing how quickly he can pick up on the learning curve! Yay! :D Go Kris and KAB! We love you!

    Ratna12: Thank you so much for your recap! You’re adorable! I love how you jumped over the chair and then forgot to breath. I’m so happy you’re having fun and how sweet of you to post these extra tidbits while you’re out there!

  59. LasVegasLisa

    All you @krisallen fans are going to love this interview/performance of “Alright With Me” I’ll post the segment after the show from Midday!

  60. LasVegasLisa
    @RLM1919 Asked him to sum up in 1 word the new American Idol judges, his favorite guilty pleasure TV show, who he’d love 2 work with, etc.

    LasVegasLisa
    Off camera @krisallen told me he’s happy to have a touring break. He said he’s looking forward to going home for Thanksgiving & Christmas! –

  61. Bigdaddysays
    You don’t get more hipster than this… http://yfrog.com/mt4rwkj


    calevis24
    I sort of thought that even the high schools in las vegas would have slots, guess i was wrong…just books…about how to win at poker

  62. Jive has it posted now too on their website.

    …And they’re asking people to go to KOA and comment on how much they like it. I hope they get a lot of positive feedback and decide to make it the official video.

  63. I don’t know why I didn’t know this, but I was reading an article for an upcoming concert and found out this is Lifehouses’s first headling tour. Prior to this they have either been the opening act or co-headliner. What an honor for Kris to be chosen the opening act on their 1st headlining tour! They’ve had so many #1 hits and didn’t Ryan say they’ve had a song on some version of the Top 40 for like 500 weeks. They’ve been around for a decade so just goes to show you do not need to be the headliner to have a successful career.

  64. tripp thanks for the KNTV performance. He sounded good, as usual.
    LOL at the interviewer saying Kris’s fans are fanatics.

  65. KrisAllen Kris Allen
    Just AWM on the radio for the first time! Good things happen in Vegas.

    :)

    ampetersen: Some lucky Las Vegas students get a special performance from @KrisAllen today at 4 on #8NewsNow

  66. Thank YOU KAB for the AWM video. C’mon Kris fans, we’ve got to rally behind him for this. What a superb idea and what a wonderful video..no desert, and no Pat M.!

  67. FaithfulFan:
    11/19/2010 at 6:33 pm

    Jim C article about the AWM video. He cracks me up! Love what he says about Kris: “Allen and his team have finally figured out that it’s time to unleash their best kept secret: his personality. And that’s alright with me.”

    http://newsroom.mtv.com/2010/11/19/kris-allen-alright-with-me-video/

    Thanks Faithfulfan for that link. Gotta love Jim.
    I absolutely adore this video with all the shots of the band & goofiness behind the scenes. Goes so well with the style of song it is- so yes I think this would make a great official video!!

    Oh & Ratna – thanks so much for your recap almost on the run to Las vegas- very much appreciated.[ I can’t keep up at the moment as I have family staying for my husbands 50th birthday celebrations. I know the tour will be over soon so I’ll savour this for the lean times !!

  68. I hope we get more reports back from those who were at the Gibson. It sounds like a great show. I think the Lifehouse pairing has been a huge success and is bringing in new fans.

    Hah, I was waiting for Cantiello’s response to the video. Great!

    It’s at 13,731 hits on youtube last I checked and has these honors:
    #53 – Most Discussed (Today)) – Entertainment
    #170 – Most Viewed (Today)) – Entertainment – New Zealand
    #153 – Most Viewed (Today)) – Entertainment – Israel
    #172 – Most Viewed (Today)) – Entertainment
    #50 – Top Favorited (Today))
    #10 – Top Favorited (Today)) – Entertainment
    #36 – Top Rated (Today)) – Entertainment

    Interesting seeing New Zealand and Israel in there … and very cool.

  69. Jive is really going all out to let fans know about the video. They even sent out a text message about it on Kris’ mobile alert. I wonder if they are trying to see how many people are interested in the song, or if they are trying to drum up some buzz that they can use to get stations to play the song.

  70. I’m in line. Saw girlygirl at the front of the line. about 50 people now.
    Bigdaddy and Torres came out and took pictures.
    I asked big daddy if Kris will come out to sign tonight and he said ” maybe, he does not feel that good right now”
    :(

  71. maybe, he does not feel that good right now

    Yikes. After the last few days he is probably really tired. Hope he is not getting sick. Maybe he’ll be able to sleep late tomorrow.

  72. he does not feel that good right now”

    I thought he sounded a little sick in the Today’s KNTV performance http://tinyurl.com/24ohg9l vid posted earlier and was hoping he is fine.. :(

    Ross, he does sound like he is having a cold.. that darn kid..

  73. aww thanks for all the pic at the school (big crowd!) and the new videos!!!
    and Jim C. article. He’s a big fan of Kris like us :D

  74. I parked myself in front of Kris’ mic on the second row basically.
    About 45 minutes before Allysa, so still a long time to go to stand up.
    I hope Kris is Ok, but I’m sure he feels tired with the press and back to back to back to back shows.

  75. I cringed when the kid with the cold tweeted the picture. Hopefully Kris is just tired and doesn’t have a cold.

  76. Hope Kris isn’t sick, don’t think we can blame that kid with the cold, don’t think you can pick it up that quickly. He has been doing a lot over the last few days, lets hope he is just tired.

  77. One thing I really like about Jim’s article (besides all the positive talk about AWM) is that all the fun stuff he and Kris have done together is now linked in one article (A,B,C, etc.). It’s one stop shopping to view the old interviews—so easy! Thanks Jim! I think my favorite is the outtakes from the MSG concert. Kris was SO excited to play there. Must have been such a thrill!

  78. i had to comment on the videos posted at the top… they are outstanding!!
