Phillip Phillips and Matt Nathanson are teaming up for a 40+ city U.S. co-headline tour. Kicking off on June 17 at San Diego County Fair– the singers will visit major markets including a stop in St. Louis at the River City Casino on Saturday, June 25 at 7 p.m. Singer-songwriter Eric Hutchinson will perform as special guest for the St. Louis engagement.
Platinum recording artist Phillip Phillips released his sophomore album Behind The Light in 2014. The album includes all songs that were either written or co-written by Phillips including “Raging Fire” which debuted in the Billboard Hot 100. Behind The Light is the follow-up to 2012’s The World from the Side of the Moon, a platinum plus-selling album that debuted at #4 on the Billboard Top 200 and featured the 5x platinum smash hit “Home.” Throughout the last few years, the Georgia native has toured the U.S. and the world, joining Matchbox Twenty and John Mayer on tour and sharing a stage with Bruce Springsteen at the 2013 Rock in Rio festival. The American Idol season 11 winner spent the summer of 2014 on a co-headline tour with O.A.R. before setting out on a national headline tour. Phillips is currently at work writing and recording his third studio album.
Based in San Francisco, Matt Nathanson has evolved into one of the most applauded songwriters and engaging performers on the music scene today. His 2007 album Some Mad Hope yielded his breakthrough multi-platinum hit “Come on Get Higher” and earned Nathanson a coveted spot as a VH1 “You Oughta Know” artist. His follow up release, Modern Love, topped the iTunes Pop Chart and featured the hit singles “Faster” and “Run” – the latter featuring Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush. In 2013, Last of The Great Pretenders debuted at #16 on the Billboard Top 200 and hit #1 on the iTunes Alternative Albums chart. Nathanson’s latest album, Show me Your Fangs, is being hailed as his most adventurous and prolific album to date featuring the songs, "Giants," "Bill Murray" and "Adrenaline." He has appeared on such national programs as The Late Show with David Letterman, The Howard Stern Show, Ellen, Conan, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Dancing with the Stars, Rachael Ray, The Bachelor and The CMA Awards to name a few. Additionally, his songs have been spotlighted in numerous film and TV shows, including Good Morning America, NCIS, Private Practice, American Idol and X Factor.
Eric Hutchinson’s latest studio album, Pure Fiction, produced by Jerrod Bettis (Adele, The Lonely Island) and Aben Eubanks, debuted in the Top 10 on iTunes' overall albums chart and in the Top 5 of iTunes' Pop albums chart. Idolator.com called Hutchinson’s music “inescapably catchy” and Esquire.com said, “his sunny lyrics reveal a wry double edge." The Wall Street Journal Speakeasy praised “Tell The World,” the first single from Pure Fiction, as “joyous” and the song was tapped as the theme song for the NBC series “Growing Up Fisher.” “A Little More,” another track from Pure Fiction, was heard in a Netflix worldwide advertising campaign. Hailed as “a vibrant conduit for catchy, radio-ready pop” by AllMusic.com, Eric has been recording his next album in New York City and Los Angeles. It will be released this summer.
