PHILLIP PHILLIPS ANNOUNCES “THE WORLD FROM THE SIDE OF THE MOON” TOUR COMES TO CANADA

Share

AMERICAN IDOL® Winner and platinum-selling recording artist, Phillip Phillips, and AEG Live have announced his first solo tour across Canada. The World From The Side Of The Moon tour will kick off on March 8th at the Dartmouth Sportsplex in Halifax/Dartmouth, Nova Scotia and conclude on March 28th at the Pepsi Live at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, BC. Supporting the Phillip Phillips Canadian Tour will be Twin Forks and the tour will visit major cities such as Montreal, Toronto, and Calgary including one U.S. date in Waukegan, IL. All tour are on sale now AXS.com.

One of last year's biggest singles, the quadruple-platinum “Home” announced Phillip Phillips as a singer/guitarist of both rare authenticity and massive pop appeal. Centering on his rich, raspy vocals and masterful guitar skills, “Home” served as the lead single from The World from the Side of the Moon (19 Entertainment/Interscope Records)—a platinum-selling album that shot to #4 on the Billboard Top 200 Album chart upon its November 2012 release. Phillips's widely acclaimed debut also features the platinum single “Gone, Gone, Gone,” as well as a host of numbers that flaunt the 23-year-old Georgia native's songwriting chops. Fresh off his first headlining tour and after traveling across North America as the opening act for singer/songwriter superstar John Mayer, Phillips is now bringing that rootsy brand of rock-and-roll to theatres across the country.

For Phillips, a jam-packed touring schedule has granted him the long-craved opportunity to play his own songs for live audiences night after night. “At first it was terrifying to share all my songs, but now we're at the point where the crowd's singing along—even to the ones that aren't the singles—which is amazing to see,” he says. Above all, performing live offers a sense of freedom that Phillips finds essential to making music. “We just go out there and jam out and try to make it different and exciting, instead of playing the songs exactly how they sound on the album,” he says. “It's all about real musicians playing real music that we're passionate about and just having a good time, and hopefully we're giving the crowd a good time too.”
