Kris Allen and Allison Iraheta @ the Tampa Meet Ball

February 15, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

Well, after that amazing concert at the ‘Rock My Town’ concert in New York, Kris and Allison sure wasted no time, flying off to Tampa for their WFLZ St Pete Meet Ball performances the next day. Check out the photos from their Tampa stop!

This was Allison’s set: No One Else, Scars, Don’t Waste The Pretty and Just Like You.

And Kris’s set: Heartless/Gangsta’s Paradise, Before We Come Undone, Man In The Mirror, The Scientist (New cover!), Alright With Me (with Empire State of Mind) and Live Like We’re Dying. I have to say though that although I’m absolutely delighted about new songs from Kris, I’m a bit perplexed that he has so many covers (not on his album) when he performs. Isn’t the point of the concerts to sell his album?

Be sure to bookmark this post, as I’ll be updating videos as they appear. Not much available right now, but this fan on twitter (catalm) has promised to upload videos! Check out this photogallery!

    I actually thought the opposite. Indeed, Kris needs to sing songs from his album to promote it. However, if I’m a non-idol viewer, he will just be another new artist to me and it usually takes a bit of effort and time for people to accept new artists. However if he can cover familiar songs well by re-interpreting them in his creative way, I might be tempted to check out more on his music. Just my opinion:)

      Well, thanks for adding your opinion. I can see your point, but for me, I’m just wondering why he’s doing so many cover songs. I can understand one or two, but the covers are taking up almost half the slots on his public performances. I just feel that he does have good songs on his own album, and he should be singing them so as to make them more familiar to people, not falling back on all these covers. I don’t get how you can sell an album by not singing most of the songs from the album.

    Some of the songs on his album are not really suitable for this type of venue, i.e. I need to know and Lifetime plus for the fans he has already it is nice to get something new and not the same ones all the time.I agree with summersnows opinion plus in most of the shows he does it is more like a quarter of the songs are covers, this show happened to have more. Empire state of mind was only a few lines and I couldn’t understand what he said about putting that in there but he said he did ‘the scientist’ because it seemed the crowd liked to sing a long and he wanted to give them another opertunity to do so.

      I don’t agree that Kris’ songs were not suitable for the venue – he has tons of other songs not just those other two you mentioned – it’s a 12 song cd!

      Like I said – one or two covers for each performance night should be more than enough if he wants to connect with his fans who enjoyed those songs on Idol. More than that is just squandering his chance to sell the album. You can’t sell an album by singing songs which are NOT on the album. Kris came from a Karaoke show singing covers – but now he has his own album of really good songs – so I have no idea why he is still singing the covers which number a quarter to a half of the slots in his concerts. I’m a fan just like you are and I do enjoy the new songs, but it doesn’t make sense to me from a business standpoint.
