Phillip Phillips and the band played in front of a packed Highland Park at the Ravinia Festival, in Illinois yesterday. Is not the first time Phillip has played at the historic festival — he performed there in 2014 during his tour with John Mayer — but it was his first playing yet another new song from his upcoming album!Continue Reading →
Phillip Phillips’ summer tour 2016 may go down in the books as the tour that just kept on giving. That’s because Phillip decided to debut another new song last night during his show in Columbus, OH. Shortly before going on stage he teased that there was going to be a surprise during the show, and sure enough, it was the debut of brand new song “Don’t Tell Me.” This is in addition to”Magnetic,” which he debuted early on in the tour, and frequent appearances of “Dance with Me” on the set list. It seemed impossible just a few weeks ago when we had not heard one note from the album, to now, where there may be three new songs making the rotations on the set list.Continue Reading →
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.

Phillip Phillips’ summer tour made its way to Missoula, Montana last night. Phillip’ set list changes every night, so it’s always fun to try to guess what’ll be on any given night; there’s bound to be a surprise or two. Last night, it was the Missoula audience’s turn and Phillip gave them a huge surprise when he decided to debut his brand new song “Magnetic” with his full band. Before he launched into the song, he taught the audience how to sing along to the background vocals, and the results were as magical as the beautiful summer night.Continue Reading →
