The co-headlining tour brought together Phillip Phillips and Matt Nathanson fans, as well as introduced many to the great sounds of Eric Hutchinson and A Great Big World, the two alternating openers throughout the tour.Continue Reading →

Phillip Phillips in Seattle: Sexy Tunes and Sing-Alongs
The last time I saw Phillip Phillips in concert was a cool fall day in October 2014. At the time, I had no idea it would take almost two years until I was able to see Phillip play live again. That was in part due to Phillip taking some time off after some seriously heavy touring and some missed opportunities on my part. Thankfully, all that is in the past as Phillip is back on the road co-headlining a 40 dates tour across the U.S. with Matt Nathanson. Last Sunday, July 18, the tour brought Phillip and Matt to Seattle, WA, where they played to a sold out crowd on the beautiful Woodland Park Zoo grounds.Continue Reading →
Phillip Phillips’ Summer Tour Brings on the Rain and the Jams
Phillip Phillips continues to make his way across the US as part of his co-headlining tour with Matt Nathanson. Though the tour started just a couple of weeks ago, there have already been plenty of memorable moments.
First, some very lucky fans in St. Louis, MO had the chance to see Dave Eggar on cello and keys when he joined Phillip and band for one very special night. Then, during their stop at Huber Heights, Ohio, Phillip and band debuted a new cover of “Lakini’s Juice” – the 1997 hit from band Live. This is another even heavier tune after the addition of Hendrix’s “Foxy Lady” at the start of the tour. Earlier that same night, Phillip also joined Eric Hutchinson and Matt Nathanson for a cover of Prince’s “Raspberry Beret,” a fun and cool tribute to the late genius.
But perhaps most special of all was a rain soaked show a couple days earlier in Indianapolis, Indiana.
The show was delayed a few hours due to rain and lighting, but when it finally happened, it was intense and beautiful. Unfortunately, the show had to be cut a little bit short due to the weather but Phillip promised all the Indiana fans he would be back to make it up to them all. The tour continues tonight in Hampton Beach, NH.
