Phillip Phillips Extensive North American Tour Kicks Off Sept 12

Platinum-selling singer-songwriter Phillip Phillips has announced dates for his North American headline tour, kicking off Sept. 12 at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.

Phillips’ national tour will include stops in Dallas, Boston, Nashville, New Orleans, Washington D.C., Phoenix and Orlando. Visit for more on sale info.

The comprehensive tour comes after Phillips’ Behind the Light (19 Entertainment/Interscope) was released to critical acclaim. His new single, “Unpack Your Heart,” is the second track released from the album, following the hit song “Raging Fire.”

Behind The Light is the follow-up to Phillips’ hugely successful debut album, The World from the Side of the Moon, which spawned the single “Home” -- one of the biggest tracks of 2012 with more than 5 million copies sold.

The World from the Side of the Moon sold more than 1 million copies and debuted at #4 on the Billboard Top 200 Album chart and #1 on the Billboard Rock Album chart; successful tours both as a headliner and with Matchbox 20 and John Mayer followed. The World from the Side of the Moon also featured the platinum single “Gone, Gone, Gone.” Since winning season 11 of “American Idol,” Phillips has sold more than 2 million albums and more than 9 million singles.

Phillips recently co-headlined a 25-city summer tour with O.A.R.
