It was an emotionally uplifting night when 36.4 million viewers tuned in and 63 million votes were cast to name Hicks the Season 5 winner of American Idol. Since winning American Idol, Hicks debut album went RIAA certified platinum; he has performed with the likes of Willie Nelson, Snoop Dog, Gladys Knight, Earth Wind and Fire & The Allman Brothers; appeared in concerts worldwide and penned a brisk-selling Random House autobiography; “Heart Full of Soul”.
Hicks cannot sit still for long and is currently preparing The Taylor Hicks Band for a 20-city national tour that will begin on July 25 in New York City . Fat Fish Blue is proud to present to Cleveland a touring artist with such talent and broad appeal. Taylor claims this tour is the best lineup of musicians he has ever assembled. He is excited to bring his raucous and moving live show back to intimate venues where his fans will experience the true force of each performance.
