Kris Allen’s status illustrated by his new gig: opening for Lifehouse
American Idol 8 winner Kris Allen’s success as an artist might be indicated by his latest gig: He’s opening for Lifehouse during their fall tour. This follows his record low sales for his debut album last fall, although Kris does get to headline some shows: three, to be exact, in Arkansas, Tennessee, and Indiana.
19 Entertainment’s press release says “Kris is no stranger to being on the road, as he spent his summer headlining shows around the country. He has also opened for big names such as Keith Urban, The Barenaked Ladies, The Fray, Daughtry and Maroon 5.” All of those, though, aren’t Lifehouse.
Kris, who recently did a USO tour, will soon release the third single from his self-titled debut record, and he will headline three tour dates: Oct. 27 in Conway, Arkansas; Oct. 28 in Memphis; and Nov. 6 in Valparaiso. Wow, three whole shows. At least he got $650,000.
