Phillip Phillips closed his “Where We Came From” tour last Saturday, November 19 at the historic Toad’s Place, in New Haven, CT. The tour extended over 5 weeks and saw Phillip and band play across 15 cities, mostly in the South and the East Coast.
As Phillip revealed during a recent interview, he planned for the tour to only take place over the weekend, with shows going from Thursday to Saturday each week. He said he chose to do this to minimize his time away from home and his family.
Phillip and his wife Hannah have one son, Patch, who turned three in early November. Phillip is celebrating 10 years since his win on American Idol as well as the anniversary of his first album, The World From The Side Of The Moon, and it’s wonderful to see how he has the ability to tour and bring his music to his fans while at the same time prioritizing his family.
Toad’s Place was founded in 1975 and has dominated the New Haven music scene for decades. From U2, to the Rolling Stones, to Dave Matthews Band and Radiohead, numerous top musicians and bands have made a stop there in the last 45 years.
Phillip’s incredible band this time around was composed of Evan Scott Penza on guitar, Jared Alexander on bass and trumpet, Ben Satterlee on drums, and Bobby Steinfield on keyboard.
