Whoops. The crowd at Kris Allen’s secret show at Santa Monica Pier last night got so big that
mall police pier security shut it down!
“How bout the peir in Santa Monica? 8 pm” tweeted Kris to his fans, “You…me…couple tunes…ocean breeze…birds pooping on us. It’s gonna be great.”
On the set list was: “Better With You,” “Rooftops,” “Out Alive,” “Live Like We’re Dying,” “Shut That Door And Keep That Devil Out,” “The Vision Of Love,” covers like “Gangsta’s Paradise,” Donny Hathaway’s “A Song For You,” Justin Timberlake’s “What Goes Around…Comes Around,” and a girl pop medley that included Britney and Rihanna.
Things went along swimmingly until security dude showed up IN THE MIDDLE OF A NEW SONG called “Should I” and put a halt to the fun. Kris was, apparently, busking without a permit. When Kris extended his hand, dude curtly replied, “I don’t shake hands with anybody.” Who pissed in HIS wheaties?
Afterward, Kris tweeted, “Well I wasn’t expecting anything from tonight but that’s not what I expected. Getting stopped by the cops never crossed my mind. Thanks to everyone that came out. Had a good time. And to the people that just stopped…thanks for stopping. Btw I didn’t mean any disrespect to other street performers out there. I respect them so much for what they do.”
#FreeKrisAllen trended for awhile last night. Even Kris’s mom weighed in, “”Dear Pier Cops, Don’t make me come over there! #RathofMom #freekrisallen”
