August 6, 2011 – Wisconsin State Fair, West Allis, WI

Setlist: Heart Like Stone / Light Up The Dark / Hold On ‘Til The Night / Unfriend You / Paparazzi / Cheyenne / Empire State Of Mind / Little London Girl / Home Is In Your Eyes / Waiting Outside The Lines

Notes: Greyson and his red piano showed up to once again open for Allstar Weekend at the Wisconsin State Fair. He performed for a crowd of thousands, which included as many adults as young people. Unfortunately, it was too light when Greyson took the stage for his image to show up well on the giant projection screens. While the picture showed up a wee bit better towards the end of his performance, it would have been great if the folks in the back had a better view of him up close and personal throughout the show.

July 29, 2011 – Rock Country 4-H Fair, Janesville, WI

Setlist: Heart Like Stone / Light Up The Dark / Hold On ‘Til The Night / Unfriend You / Paparazzi / Cheyenne / Empire State of Mind / Little London Girl / Home Is In Your Eyes / Waiting Outside The Lines

Notes: Greyson and his band took a quick 1,000 mile detour from opening for Miranda Cosgrove on the east coast during the Dancing Crazy tour to open for Allstar Weekend in Janesville, WI. It was a nice sized crowd for a small city like Janesville. There were lots of Greyson fans in attendance. The line for his autograph would have almost stretched 3/4 the length of a football field. The line never seemed to get any shorter; and unfortunately, he had to stop signing when Allstar Weekend started their set. Greyson had to fly out of Janesville for a show in Virginia the next day.

July 22, 2011 – The Mann Center, Philadelphia, PA

Notes: Following a day off, Greyson was up early to drop by the Johnjay and Rich show on 104.7 KISS-FM. He had been interviewed on the morning show only a few months earlier when the Dancing Crazy Tour rolled through Arizona in late February, but during that visit he didn’t perform. Greyson had promised Johnjay and Rich that he would come back and perform for them, so he was making good on that promise.

Setlist: Heart Like Stone / Light Up the Dark / Fire / Paparazzi / Empire State of Mind / Unfriend You / Waiting Outside the Lines

Notes: The first professional review of the Waiting4U Tour was published in The Washington Post the day following this show and once again, Greyson received high praise. Dave McKenna who was reviewing the show for The Post, said that “catching Chance at this stage in his career is akin to watching a thoroughbred of impeccable breeding gallop as a yearling. He doesn’t have his legs under him yet, and stumbles are possible, but the raw materials are such that it’s hard to bet against him running with the big boys in a few years.”

Setlist: Heart Like Stone / Light Up The Dark / Fire / Paparazzi / Empire State Of Mind / Unfriend You / Waiting Outside the Lines

Notes: Greyson and Cody Simpson’s Waiting4U Tour stops at the historic Rave (1926) in Milwaukee, WI. The Rave has three main performance areas, in addition to a couple of smaller ones. They were originally scheduled to perform in the Eagle’s Ballroom which can accommodate a few thousand fans, but were moved to the Rave Hall, which can hold about 1500. The room was about 1/3 full. It had great sound and everyone had an excellent view. It was very evident that many of the adults who had brought their kids were quite impressed with Greyson’s performance. Greyson tweeted, after he explored “the bowels” of the old building that he thought the place was haunted; and indeed, it has long been said that it is.

The setlist for this event may be incomplete or out of order.

January 28, 2011 – Rosemont Theatre, Rosemont, IL

Setlist: Fire / Empire State of Mind / Broken Hearts / Paparazzi / Unfriend You / Waiting Outside the Lines

Notes: A stop on the Dancing Crazy Tour, Miranda Cosgrove and Greyson played the very modern Rosemont Theatre, which has been renamed the Akoo Theatre. 3,806 tickets were sold for the event — about 90% capacity. A few adults were heard to ask, “Who’s Greyson Chance?” as they entered the lobby and and saw the posters by the souvenir booths. They certainly knew the answer to that question by the time Greyson had finished his set. His signing line stretched halfway across the very large lobby, down a flight of stairs, and ended up somewhere in the basement of the facility. There were LOTS of preteens at the show to see Miranda do to the popularity of her Nickelodeon series.

 

January 28, 2011 – WGN Morning News, Chicago, IL

Setlist: Waiting Outside the Lines / Fire

Notes: Prior to his performance at the Rosemont Theatre, Greyson stopped by WGN Morning News in Chicago. He was interviewed, played ‘Waiting Outside the Lines” with the band and then played “Fire” solo on the piano.

Setlist: Fire / Waiting Outside the Lines

Notes: Following his show the previous night at the Pabst Theater, Greyson made an appearance on The Morning Blend, a Milwaukee morning show. Greyson was interviewed and then played his cover of “Fire” and “Waiting Outside the Lines” on a keyboard in the studio.

January 26, 2011 – Pabst Theatre, Milwaukee, WI

Setlist: Fire / Empire State of Mind / Broken Hearts / Paparazzi / Unfriend You / Waiting Outside the Lines

Notes: This was the third stop for Miranda Cosgrove’s Dancing Crazy Tour. The Pabst Theater is a beautifully restored theater in downtown Milwaukee. There were a few hundred people in attendance, which included very many preteen girls and their parents. Before the show Greyson entered the theater though a side door, walked past several seats, went up on stage, check something out, and then left by the same route. One could hardly imagine him doing that now

January 8, 2011 – Science Museum Oklahoma, Oklahoma City, OK

Setlist: Waiting Outside the Lines

Notes: For his first performance of 2011, Greyson was back home in Oklahoma performing at the “Fun for Families” event at the Science Museum Oklahoma. This event was one of the many pre-inaugural events being held around the state before Mary Fallin was to be sworn in as the state’s 27th, and first female, governor. Governor-elect Fallin told Greyson that “we wanted you [to perform today] because you’re an Oklahoman. You’re an inspiration to all the other children that are here today.” Greyson said he was very honored to be performing at this event and that he will always remember it. The setlist for this event may be incomplete.
