Phillip Phillips @ Xfinity Arena in Everett 10.21.14

October 22, 2014

Tuesday night turned out to be pretty busy for me in the best way possible.  I was initially bummed to learn that Phillip Phillips was playing at Xfinity Arena in Everett the same night Hozier was playing in Seattle as I didn't want to have to choose one over the other.  I then learned that Phillip was on stage at 8 and Hozier at 9:45 and the master plan was hatched to cover both shows on the same night in two different cities.  It was so worth the effort and I didn't even get a speeding ticket.

Promptly at 8 (phew), Season 11 American Idol winner Phillip Phillips came out on stage with his band and reminded me why my wife and kids voted for him during his run on Idol.  OK fine, I admit it.  I voted for him too.  We thought he was really good then and Tuesday I realized I was wrong about that.  He isn't just good.  Phillip Phillips is great.  Massive amounts of energy, AMAZING lighting which is always a big plus in my book and really strong vocals.  Phillips would break away in the middle of each song for some epic jam sessions that had me lowering my camera and simply watching and enjoying these guys clearly enjoying themselves and creating some really great music.  Next time you get the chance, check out his live show, it is really worth watching.
