"American Idol" winner Phillip Phillips released his third record Collateral earlier in 2018 and he's out on the road promoting it. The successful singer-songwriter will be bringing his Magnetic Tour to Detroit's Majestic Theatre on April 7, 2018. Fans can expect to hear favorites and new songs alike along with a few surprises. AXS has tickets to the show here, presented by AEG (AXS' parent company).
Phillips combines songs from all three records since his mainstream career began nearly six years ago. The "Idol" winner will sing around 12-13 songs total and includes hits such as "Home," the most successful song to come from an "Idol" contestant, "Gone, Gone, Gone," "Unpack Your Heart," and the new song "Magnetic." A handful of songs remain but others have been swapped out since the tour began. During the show, Phillips covers Usher's "Nice & Slow" and has also covered Michael Jackson's "Thriller" to conclude his setlist, a song he sang to audition for "Idol" during a taping in 2011 and has covered it since. During this tour, Phillips has covered Phil Collin's "In the Air Tonight" in place of "Thriller," also a song he sang during his time on "Idol."
The Majestic Theatre in Detroit provides for hours of entertainment aside from the actual concert. There's a café to fuel up before Phillips takes the stage and the Majestic is also home to the country's oldest bowling alley. The Majestic is one of the city's signature independent venues that has been a stop for artists such as Elle King, The Black Keys, The Black Eyed Peas, Garbage, Foster the People and dozens more. It's also unique in the sense that it also serves as an overall event center such as weddings.
Tickets for Phillip Phillips show in Detroit are on sale now and pricing begins at $25 and begins at $30 at the door. The doors open at 7:00 p.m. and is open to all ages.
