Greyson Chance’s Moline Performance to be Broadcast on NBC – Asked about Winter Tour!

Good news Greyson Chance fans.

A couple of months ago, Greyson met up with his touring partner Cody Simpson, and friends Shane Harper and Ariana Grande to put on a show in Moline Illinois.

You probably won’t see any videos on YouTube of the Moline concert because the event was being filmed by NBC television to be rebroadcast in a January 8th 2012 special presentation.

The rules were clear – “No video, flash or professional cameras allowed.”

That means if any videos do surface on the internet they will probably be taken down pretty fast. We did find one early promotional video and two fan videos of his performance, and since it was done back in October Greyson still has his old hair cut.

But just because there are no OFFICIAL videos doesn't mean that fans in the audience were not able to capture Greyson's performance!

Thanks to cicishort98 for uploading their fan shot video of his performance of "Waiting Outside The Lines" and "Cheyenne"!

The Skating Spectacular show was part of NBC’s Progressive Skating and Gymnastics Spectacular, a Pandora NBC Skating Series Event, which features some of the world’s best figure skaters in combination with sensational musical performances.

The Executive Producers of the show were Disson Skating, a partnership with Comcast/NBC which every year produces eight nationally televised figure skating spectaculars featuring celebrity guest artists.

This was the third show in the Pandora Skating series and was filmed 10.29.11 at the “i Wireless Center” in Moline Illinois. The complete show will be aired on NBC January 8th at 8:00 EST.

The event was hosted by Olympic champions and legendary competitors Peggy Fleming, Nadia Comaneci and Bart Conner.

The show featured performances from two-time Olympic figure skating silver medalist Elvis Stojko and 2008 Olympic all-around gymnastics champion Nastia Liukin. The gymnasts were led by Liukin, and 2008 Olympic Silver Medalist and two-time and current U.S. National all-around Champion Jonathon Horton.

Greyson took some time before his performance to talk with a rep from Disson Skating and answered a few questions:

(Q) - Your family is full of musicians; did you want to start playing the piano because of your brother and sister?

“Well, they’re pretty musical but I decided to do piano on my own! It was always just sitting there and one day I just decided that I wanted to play it! I eventually started teaching myself, and then I started taking lessons. The piano is my favorite instrument, I am glad I picked it up.”

(Q) - So you are going to perform with Cody Simpson, Ariana Grande and Shane Harper in the Progressive Skating & Gymnastics Spectacular show at the i wireless Center tonight, have you ever skated or participated in gymnastics?

“No I haven’t actually! I am so excited to see the skaters and gymnasts. Also, I am great friends with everybody performing, so I am excited to see some of my old buddies! I am going to be opening the show, which is quite exciting.”

(Q) - You and Cody Simpson toured quite a bit over the summer and here you are again together participating in a nationally televised show for NBC. Did you and Cody get to know each other pretty well on the road?  Any funny stories to share?

“Cody and I had such a blast touring together! We grew really close. I was always pranking him with silly string and other stupid pranks. Ha ha we had a lot of fun.”

(Q) - What is the status of your 2012 tour schedule? Will you be with Cody Simpson again during your 2011-2012 winter tour?

“I can’t say too much about the winter tour right now, but I can tell you we will be in Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Japan, and a lot of other places. We will also do another North American tour in 2012, and will probably hit up Latin American fans in Chile, Brazil, and Argentina. We will also do Europe and Australia. I’m already in the studio writing music and rehearsing for the tour shows and we have a LOT of exciting stuff to announce. Stay tuned!”

For now Greyson is headed back to Los Angeles to continue his work in the recording studio preparing new music and finalizing his 2012 schedule.
