American Idol Winner Phillip Phillips to Perform at Adams Center Oct. 23

August 12, 2014

MISSOULA – The Adams Center at the University of Montana will host pop-rock musician Phillip Phillips on Thursday, Oct. 23. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the concert begins at 8 p.m.

Phillips recently released his sophomore album “Behind The Light.” All the songs on the album were either written or co-written by Phillips, including the lead single “Raging Fire,” an epic and urgent love song that debuted in the Billboard Hot 100 upon its March release and quickly earned raves for Phillips’ stirring vocal delivery and guitar work.

During the past year, the 23-year-old 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 recently wrapped up a summer tour with O.A.R.

Tickets for the Oct. 23 show go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. Friday, Aug. 15.  Tickets are $40 and $30, plus applicable ticketing and convenience fees. Tickets are available at all GrizTix outlets, online at, and by phone at 406-243-4051 or toll-free at 1-888-MONTANA.
