Phillip Phillips once told MTV after his American Idol win in 2012 that he never dreamed he would get as far as he did on the popular reality TV show, let alone win.
“Honestly, I didn’t think I’d even get in to see the judges,” he said. “I have no shame in saying I’m not a great singer. I just love to play good music, have fun on stage jammin’ with the guys, and gettin’ the crowd into it.”
This gentleman from Georgia will bring his winning and self-proclaimed mediocre voice to the Tri-Cities on Oct. 19 for a concert at the TRAC facility in Pasco.
Doors open at 6 p.m. Showtime is at 7 p.m. Tickets cost from $53 to $62 and are available at the Kennewick Ranch & Home store, Pasco Red Lion Hotel or TRAC box office.
Never miss a local story.
After earning the American Idol crown, Phillips went on to release his debut album, The World from the Side of the Moon, which included Home, the song that blew away the judges and the audience during the Idol finals.
Phillips has sold more than 2 million albums and 9 million singles since his Idol win.
Home was his coronation song from American Idol’s 11th season and is the second most popular single from the show’s history.
Coronation songs are numbers sung by each season’s winners. Those songs are then released as singles by the show’s producers.
Phillips’ second album, Behind the Light, was released earlier this year. The album’s hit singles include Unpack Your Heart and Raging Fire.
