American Idol Taylor Hicks will be performing a Rod Stewart tribute along with select originals at Winfield’s Pastime Theatre on Saturday, August 27th, at 7:00 p.m. This will be the last concert of the 2022 season at The Pastime.
Winning “American Idol’s” blockbuster fifth season was just the beginning for Taylor Hicks. Hailed as “part Stax, part Motown and part honky-tonk” by The New York Times, Hicks’ intoxicating blend of soul, blues, country, and rock 'n' roll quickly rendered him a household name as he progressed to the show’s record-breaking finale in 2006, a historic television event which drew an audience of more than 200 million viewers.
Hicks immediately followed his Idol victory with a No. 1 Billboard single and an RIAA®-certified Platinum debut, and soon went on to make history as both the first male Idol champion featured on a GRAMMY®-winning record (Jimmy Fallon’s Blow Your Pants Off), and the first to land a prestigious Las Vegas residency. A versatile artist, actor and advocate, Hicks has since ventured into theater and television, touring as Teen Angel in the popular Broadway musical “Grease” in addition to appearing on “Law & Order: SVU” and hosting the INSP series “State Plate,” which won the Cynopsis TV Award for Best Reality Series (Travel).
