ALTOONA – Season 11 American Idol winner Phillip Phillips will perform at 8 p.m. April 26 at Penn State Altoona in the Adler Athletic Complex. The opening act will be Casey Weston, a finalist from the first season of The Voice.
Tickets can be purchased at the Office of Student Life in the Slep Student Center from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. Tickets are $20 with a limit of four per person, cash or check only.
The 22-year-old songwriter/guitarist released “Home,” a debut single that showcases his rich, raspy vocals and masterful guitar skills- and marked the biggest opening sales week for an Idol winner’s coronation song. The track has since gone triple platinum and was used as the soundtrack for the 2012 US Olympics Women’s Gymnastics team.
Phillips released his debut album “The World From The Side Of The Moon” in November, where it debuted at number four on Billboard’s Top 200 chart and has already reached gold status.
