National Tour Of Grease Starts Now - Starring Taylor Hicks

I posted a piece about Taylor and encouraging people to go see him in Grease on my Live Mic Blog. I wanted to share it here also.

If you have not seen Taylor Hicks live and in person than you have not seen the real Taylor Hicks. Taylor loves performing in front of the audience he feeds off the energy supplied by the audience and they thrive off of him. It is win-win.

Taylor is not doing a concert tour at the moment however the national tour of the fifties-themed musical Grease, which Taylor Hicks starred in as “Teen Angel” this past summer in the Broadway production at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre, launches today at the Providence Performing Arts Center in Providence, RI.

I have yet to see Taylor in the Teen Angel role, however those who saw Grease this past summer give Taylor as Teen Angel and the entire show a complete thumbs up. Taylor Hicks has took the role of Teen Angel and made it his own. The tour will stop near me Dec.16th- the 21st and I can’t wait to see it. Below are a few videos to get you in the mood and the tours scheduled stops thus far.
