Phillip Phillips Headlining Musikfest Aug. 10
BETHLEHEM, PA—It’s a sensational night under the stars as singer-songwriter and American Idol winner Phillip Phillips headlines Musikfest’s Sands Steel Stage Aug. 10 at 7 p.m. Tickets for the concert are $30-$39 and go on sale April 30, 10 a.m., to ArtsQuest Members and May 3, 10 a.m., to the public at www.musikfest.org and 610-332-3378.
Since releasing his five-times-platinum debut single “Home” in spring 2012, Phillip Phillips has put out two chart-topping albums and taken his expansive brand of earthy, guitar-fueled rock to stages across the globe. With his soulful vocals and ruggedly warm sensibilities, the Georgia-bred 26-year-old saw his first full-length effort, The World from the Side of the Moon, go platinum after debuting at #4 on the Billboard Top 200. In 2014 his second album, Behind the Light, offered up the lead anthemic folk-rock radio hit “Raging Fire.”
Phillips released “Miles” in the summer of 2017 as he toured North America with the Goo Goo Dolls, as a precursor to his recent and highly anticipated third full-length, Collateral, which includes the single “Into The Wild” as well as fan favorite “Magnetic.”
The Phillip Phillips concert is supported by media partner 100.7 WLEV.
