Two of my favorite acts - Kris Allen and Lifehouse - will be touring together this fall. Needless to say, this makes me a very happy camper! They begin their 26-date tour on Oct. 15 in Mashantucket, CT. The tour wraps up on Nov. 24 in Portland, OR.
Tickets for most of the October shows, plus a few in November, go on sale Saturday at 10 am local time.
I've seen both Lifehouse and Kris several times this summer, and they're such a great fit musically. I think both have had to (successfully) battle misconceptions of what their live performances are like. You hear Lifehouse on the radio, and a good chunk of their huge hits are ballads, but they even rock those out, and they put on a great show. Same goes for Kris - some people expected his shows to be just him strumming a guitar and singing acoustic songs all night. HARDLY (Although when he does, it's glorious!).
Prior to announcing Kris as their support act, Lifehouse had been touting their opener as someone they are fans of and as someone who "rules." They previously played a show with Kris in June at the Alice Summerthing in San Francisco. One of the DJs at Radio Alice talked to Lifehouse lead singer Jason Wade during Kris's set, and Jason said that Kris had a "sick voice".
