Kris Allen coming to Clearwater on Valentine's Day weekend




Add this to the list of Valentine's Day weekend concerts in Tampa Bay.

Kris Allen, last year's American Idol winner, is coming to the Venue in Clearwater on Feb. 13 for the Meetball, a matchmaking event sponsored by 93.3-FLZ. Thing of it as a big singles party on the Saturday before Valentine's Day.

The event is free (although it'll be 21 and up), and it won't be a full-fledged concert -- Allen is expected to play three or four acoustic songs. But still, it's a free show, and he'll probably play new single Live Like We're Dying, which, secretly, isn't 100 percent terrible (not that you heard it from us).

Besides, you might end up meeting Mr. or Mrs. Right at the event, and someday you'll be able to tell your kids that Mommy and Daddy met because a reality show contest winner sang to them at something called a "Meetball." (The 2010s were a strange decade, Future Kids.)

The event is 7 to 10 p.m. Feb. 13 at the Venue, 2675 Ulmerton Road. Click here for all the details.
