Los Angeles, CA, March 5, 2014 — American Idol season 8 winner Kris Allen will perform new music to lucky concertgoers on Wednesday, March 12, through Friday, March 14, at SXSW. See below for all dates.

Since skyrocketing to stardom as the winner of the 2009 season of American Idol, Kris Allen has taken his “impressive talent” and “warm-hearted charm” on the road with the likes of Keith Urban, Maroon 5, Barenaked Ladies and Lifehouse, as well as headlining club tours across the country.

When he’s not on the road, Kris can be found lending his talent and time to organizations like World Vision, Music Empowers and the Trevor Project, or spending time with his family in Arkansas.
