Darren performed at a concert, Celebrating David Bowie (NYC) today (January 10, the one-year anniversary of David Bowie's passing).  I like how Darren changed his voice slightly in a way that's more gravelly and rock, and the way he forms the words of the lyrics.  Such a chameleon.  :happy face
(And I like his jacket too.)

DarrenCrissArmy posted another video, but I couldn't post it.  Here is the link:  DarrenCrissArmy

ha.  I laughed at the posting person's comment:
extralegroom   "That time I saw the guy from Glee sing #DavidBowie at #Terminal5 and it was actually pretty cool"




heh.  Darren talking about his love for the American Songbook, and then singing David Bowie.  What a contrast in musical tastes.  :amused






From dailydarrennews:


pugsnbubs: Watching the #davidbowie tribute show. #celebratingdavidbowie #nyc #terminal5 #terminal5nyc #darrenkris #iloveny #livemusic #tuesdaynight #bowie #thinwhiteduke #ziggystardust








I love this pic.  His pose, the lights, the colors, the musicians, the audience.

Darren performing at “Celebrating David Bowie” on January 10th, 2017 (x)

EDIT:  Sorry DaisiesAndlLilies, I didn't see your earlier post of the Youtube video!   :amused  Thanks for posting that other video! :thank you

For Instagram, you can find out the URL for the video (using view-source) by searching for "mp4". Then you use video and source tags and specify height and width. The code should look like this:


Code:
<video controls="" height="640" width="640">
    <source
src="https://scontent-atl3-1.cdninstagram.com/t50.2886-16/15969438_1246130858789187_2065740005061427200_n.mp4"
 type="video/mp4"> </source></video>

Then you should get the video to display like this:




dalberto14 #changes #davidbowie #hunkydory #nyc #tribute #celebratebowie #glee #darrencriss

Here is another angle from julz91:



NME has the full setlist from last night's show at over three hours! And Rolling Stone had a writeup of the show, with "Darren Chris" as one of the performers. :very confused Darren's friend Mr. Hudson sang Starman.

DaisiesAndLilies,

Thanks so much for the lesson.  I will practice and see if I can make an instagram video work.  

I appreciate your taking the time to post the lesson! :hug  Thank you!  

I was hoping to post your lesson in this thread:  Some General Instructions of How to Use This Site 

Is that ok?   You could copy your post and place it in that thread, or I could copy your post by quoting you over there, if that's ok with you.  If you rather not, just PM me, no worries.

And thanks for posting those additional videos of Darren performing, and the link to to NME about the set list and Rolling Stones's write-up.   I'll check them out.  :happy face 

haha.  "Darren Chris."  You would think Darren would be used to people misspelling his name, but it must be irritating.   His surname is not even that hard to spell.   I don't think I ever heard Mr. Hudson sing, so I'll check out his performance.

Chris is sort of forgivable, but how do people get Crisis, Crisp and Gliss?  :laughing
But I can relate, I get the weirdest misspellings of my first name alllll the time even though it's spelled exactly the same way it's pronounced.

Thank you both for posting all these videos! I have to post another one because he looks so great.  :love

Thanks for posting that video, Lin.  It's very clear and really close up. 

I need a clear photo of him in that coat.  He looks so rock and roll.  :love

February 11.              Night of Stars concert.  (FL). 

For tickets:  561-832-7469 or visit the official website at http://www.kravis.org/,  or

Note:  It's weird that the poster on dailydarrennews says the Night of the Stars concert is sold out, because I just tried to buy tickets and the seating chart indicates there are still seats available.

It is a bit confusing because the Kravis Center website shows two events on February 11. 

One is the "25th Anniversary Gala "Night Of Stars,"  so the Gala starts at 6 pm in the Gimelstob Ballroom. 

The other one, that lists Darren's name, is called "the 25th Anniversary "Night Of Stars, Hosted by Michael Feinstein," and it starts at 7 pm in the Alexander W. Dreyfoos, Jr. Concert Hall.  The 7 pm event hosted by Michael Feinstein is the one that lists Darren's name and has seats still available (as of this moment).

A pic of Darren and Micheal Feinstein performing their duet at the Kravis Center Gala: 


And some nice pics from the curtain call:

Jen also mentioned that she has some audio from the event too.  I'm not sure if she's planning on posting it though. Hopefully she will.  

I also loved Darren's duet of cross-country traveling pics from Vancouver to Orlando. (I'm not sure where these belong, so please feel free to move them to the proper thread if needed, Poppy.) 

darrencriss: Also it’s cool that what seems like three seconds ago I was toasting this beautiful snow capped skyline… #vancouver
 

darrencriss: … And then this morning I was toasting this beautiful coastline. From one end of North America to another. Cheers, world! Thanks for letting me check ya out

What a great duet of pics!  8)


OT:I thought Darren had spent his birthday at the Whistler Resort, but the top picture sure looks like it's from Grouse Mountain.  Spectacular view. 


ETA:  Here's a video of Darren and Michael's performance (via DCA)

Thank you so much, Lilikoiluv, for posting those pics, your comments, and that wonderful video!   

Wow, Darren sounds so good.   Ever since I first heard Darren and Michael Feinstein sing together, I have thought their voices blend so well together when they harmonize.    I believe that Darren sounds even better now than the first time he sang with Michael.   Just beautiful singing!

It seems to me that Darren has now enough played-on-stage-but-not-released-in-studio-version songs to fill a whole album.

Yes, I suspect he has so many songs that just need to be produced in a studio.  I would love to hear the new songs and love to have studio versions of them on an EP or album.  heart

And Darren doesn't seem to be into a sophisticated production. So, it's a bit strange that we don't talk about a release yet.

Maybe he's waiting the airing of ACS to release the album, in order to use the media attention for the TV show. I think we've had some talk a few months ago about how Computer Games' EP got released at the same time than the airing of the Music Meister episode.

I'm not very good at identifying production issues/value.  I'm guessing that independent artists (unless they are big stars) may not have as many funds dedicated to funding sophisticated production of their music compared to artists who are backed by big record labels, but I thought the production on Computer Games's Lost Boys Life EP was good.  :happy face

Jeremy wrote:Maybe he's waiting the airing of ACS to release the album, in order to use the media attention for the TV show. I think we've had some talk a few months ago about how Computer Games' EP got released at the same time than the airing of the Music Meister episode.

I am thinking the same thing, that Darren is waiting closer to the premiere of Season 2 of ACS in January to drop his album, so that he can combine PR on both the show and the album.  So I'm guessing he will drop his album in December 2017 just before Versace starts.  Another possibility is that he will wait till the tail end of Versace (in March 2018?).
