Taylor Hicks Solo Tour

Taylor Hicks Tour started Last night in Jacksonville, Florida. He still has many more stops on the way, for his first headlining Tour with more still continuing to be added. Some reviews from our starting to come out and those along with fan recaps our proving what The Soul Patrol has always known. Taylor Hicks gives his whole self to making sure the concert goers get a heck of a bang for their buck. has a great report of Taylor Hicks in concert it can be read here The best part of this review other than the fact of them praising Taylor’s songs is “Then he becomes overcome with the grinding and spastic gyrations of a young Joe Cocker only to become possessed like a tent preacher full of the holy spirit. Dancing like this could easily be mocked, but they work for Hicks because he is all about the music. Hicks will always carry that American Idol baggage -- for better or worse -- but of all the winners, he may be the performer who stays true to his own musical muse. Hicks sings from his soul.” Also at the site you can go here look for “Featured word games” There you will see Taylor Hicks click there to play hangman keep clicking play again to get more. See if you really know all there is to know about Taylor Hicks.

Also a great fan recap at her blog to read is located here what I like best about what she says is Taylor said he had been under the weather and after a few injections was about 80% himself. If what I saw tonight was Taylor at 80%, ‘heaven knows’ what he will be like at 100%!!!! Taylor was nothing short of a swirling dervish with his dancing. The spins, turns, leg gyrations that resemble a funky Charleston minus the hand movements, jumping, bouncing, - WOW! What a boundless bundle of energy! He worked so hard that his shirt was soaked, at least in the front. The jacket had to be hot, but Taylor, this being part of his performance attire, kept it on.
