Last Tuesday, August 23rd, Phillip Phillips gave fans the news they have been waiting for for over two years: he’s finally going on tour!
The “Where We Came From” tour will celebrate the 10th anniversary of the release of his first album, The World From The Side of The Moon, which came out on November 12, 2012. The tour’s name makes reference to the song “Where We Came From” from the same album.
Phillip announced the tour via Instagram and Twitter, and said he will be accompanied by American Authors as “special guests.”

The 15-date tour will start in Fort Worth, TX on October 20 and close exactly a month later on November 19 in New Haven, CT with stops in Tennessee, Kentucky, Virginia, and Georgia, among others, along the way. No West Coast dates were announced.
Phillip’s last official tour was in January 2020. That tour, a month-long set of dates Phillip did with long-time collaborator Errol Cooney, ended in February 2020, just before the world and all our lives were changed forever by the pandemic. This means this outing is the first time fans will be able to follow Phillip for several dates in a row since the dark days of the pandemic.
In addition to playing songs from “The World From The Side of The Moon,” Phillip promised on his tour announcement to be “sneaking in a few new songs” as well.
Phillip has hinted numerous times he has been writing new music for the last two years. His last album, Collateral came out over four years ago on January 2018. He has also worked on a couple of collaborations (“Bring It On Home” with American Authors and Maddie Poppe and “Hold on to Your Love” with Walk Off the Earth) in the meantime and released his brand-new single “Love Like That.” The tour, therefore, may mean we will be finally getting a real preview of what is to come in 2023 in terms of new music. Exciting news indeed!
Tickets for the tour are now on sale. Please visit Phillip Phillips’official site to get your tickets.
