"American Idol" Season 11 winner Phillip Phillips is taking his career to the next level, as he joins forces with rock band O.A.R. for a 25-city co-headlining tour this summer. Kicking off on June 12 at the Fox Theatre in St. Louis, Mo., the singer will galavant across the nation to perform in some of the best venues in the country.
The tour will continue through the end of July, wrapping at the Chastain Park Amphitheatre in Atlanta, Ga.
Presale tickets go on sale April 8, with general public availability opening up on April 11.
This news comes hot on the heels of the announcement of Phillips’ highly anticipated sophomore set, Behind the Light, set for a May 19th release. His current single is “Raging Fire,” the followup to his chart-topping blockbuster hits “Home” and “Gone, Gone, Gone.” His debut album, The World from the Side of the Moon, bowed at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 all-genre album chart and has sold over one million copies to-date. His multi-platinum success earned him opening gigs on several major headlining tours, including Matchbox 20 and John Mayer.
Likewise, O.A.R. is set to drop a new record, called The Rockville LP, on June 10, via Vanguard Records.
