Taylor Hicks Plays the Hits of Bob Segar: Live at The Lyric

Taylor Hicks will be making some “Night Moves” on stage at The Lyric early next month.

The American Idol winner and one of Birmingham’s most successful entertainers comes back home for a concert of Bob Segar’s greatest hits on April 6.

“The Lyric Theatre is one of my favorite live music venues in the South. Being able to perform Bob Seger’s greatest hits, along with some of my own originals, will make for a night that I will never forget. It’s very special for me to come back to my hometown and perform shows like this,” says Hicks.

Hicks became famous thanks to the fifth season of American Idol. His music is full of R&B combined with notes of country music, Southern soul and blues. Over 63 million viewers gave their votes to Hicks, making the Birmingham native that year’s American Idol.

Hicks’ star continued to rise after he stepped off the Idol stage. Less than three weeks after his Idol victory, his debut single, “Do I Make You Proud,” entered at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100, Pop 100, and Single Sales Charts. His self-titled album (Arista), debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 and was quickly certified RIAA Platinum.

Hicks took off from there, releasing records, performing on Broadway and in a national tour of the musical, Grease, headlining in Vegas and even opening Saw’s Soul Kitchen in his hometown.

Food has become a second career for Hicks with his role as host of State Plate on INSP,  where the versatile entertainer goes on a different kind of tour—a tasty tour of the USA, sampling the most iconic and popular foods in each state he visits.
