Phillip Phillips Talks to 680 News

Phillip Phillips took some time to talk to 680 News in Toronto last week, right before his show at the Sony Centre of the Performing Arts.

The always gracious Phillip talked about what he has learned about the music business in the last two years, and what his ultimate goals are as musician and songwriter:  “It’s about lasting for a life time. I’m not trying to be of the moment, I want to write something that’ll be there for a long time. It may not be on the charts for a long time, but it still have a feeling that you can feel from today, from years ago or in the future.” He also talked about his upcoming new album and gave a little more insight into “Raging Fire,” which he described as a song about “wanting to feel those butterflies like you did when you first kissed” the person you love. I think fans may already be feeling those butterflies, but in anticipation of his new album!

Phillip Phillips Kicks Off Canadian Tour With Amazing Show in Halifax, NS

Phillip Phillips kicked off his first Canadian tour last night at the Darthmouth Sportsplex in Halifax, NS, and by all accounts, it was an unbelievable night that fans will not soon forget. The highly anticipated show drew long lines of fans who didn’t mind waiting in the cold to get into the venue.

The night got off to a great start with show opener Twin Forks, who got the crowd ready with an energetic and fun set, and was a last minute replacement for previously announced Dugas. But fans were there to see Phillip and his band, and when he finally took the stage, the all-ages crowd welcomed him with huge cheers.

Although this wasn’t Phillip’s first visit to Canada, this was his first ever appearance in front of Halifax fans. And when he asked everybody to stand up and dance, they were more than ready to show their love and appreciation by dancing, singing and cheering all night long.

Phillip played a great set, opening with “Get Up Get Down,” “Drive Me” and “Gone Gone Gone Gone.” Phillip and the band then launched into a moody “Man On The Moon,”  one of the first songs of the night to include the extended intros and outros that have become a trademark of his shows.

Another amazing moment came when Phillip performed brand new single “Raging Fire,” which the crowd received with cheers and enthusiastically sang along to, despite the song having been released only a few days ago. By the time Phillip performed fan-favorite “Tell Me A Story,” he had the crowd transfixed by his sublime performance.

He ended the set with his “Let’s Get It On” intro and mega-hit “Home.” But the crowd was not ready to let him go and they clapped and screamed until he came back to the stage for a quiet encore. As he came out by himself, he treated the fans to a beautiful rendition of “Hazel,” a song he rarely plays live. He finally brought the band back and closed the night with his brilliant “Lollipop mash-up.”

There is no doubt this was an amazing start of the tour for Phillip and that he left his already adoring fans hoping it doesn’t take him too long to come back. Phillip’s next stop on the tour will be in Quebec City, where he will play a sold out show at the Grand Théâtre de Québec tomorrow.

Phillip Phillips’ Canadian Tour – The Venues

Phillip Phillips’ Canadian Tour is only three weeks away. Needless to say, excitement is mounting, and not only for Canadian fans.

With a new album on the works, the Canadian tour could very well coincide with exciting news about a possible release date, or even more amazing, the actual release of a brand new single. This may be wishful thinking from us, but would not be out of character; so far Phillip has always found ways to surprise fans with unannounced album releases (iTunes Session), and impromptu performances of new, unreleased songs. One thing is for sure, Phillip’s first Canadian tour will be unforgettable for all Canadian fans, those that have been following him since the beginning and the new ones he’ll create along the way. We will celebrate this very special tour by following Phillip and his band from their first show in Halifax, Nova Scotia in the East Coast, all the way to Vancouver, on the Pacific coast.

During the tour, Phillip will play some beautiful venues across the country, but will also make a stop at historical Genesee Theatre in Waukegan, IL in the US. Take a closer look at the tour dates, cities and venues below.
