'American Idol' winner Kris Allen coming to State Theatre

The singer will be soldiering through recent surgery after breaking his wrist in a car accident, and is bringing along a musician to play for him. Since winning in 2009, he has released two albums including his newest Thank You Camellia.

American Idol has a close relationship with Tampa Bay. Multiple contestants have come from Tampa, Taylor Hicks came here to croon for the RNC and now we get a winner to play a relatively intimate bay area venue.
