Maybe when Kris Allen cranks it up with his next rendition of “Heartless” he should dedicate it to the vendors and sing it for all the fans in the lines at the AI souvenir stands.
The economy may be in the tank, but prices of AI souvenirs certainly aren’t. And if the lines generated at Oracle Arena Saturday night mean anything … well, fans must have gotten ahold of some stimulus money.
Here’s a price list:

Kris Allen or official AI tour shirt: $35
AI Tour program: $25
Key chain: $5
Mug: $5
Glow Stick: $5
Tote Bag: $10
Individual Photos: $5

XXL official AI shirt: $70…
