(A ) new friend Nikki, who was totally blown away by Taylor tonight. She walked up and asked what we were in line for. Annette gave her an extra ticket and I've never seen anybody so excited and that was BEFORE the show! I told her Taylor would sign stuff and she could get a picture with him after the show. She couldn't have possibly have loved his show anymore! She asked me to take her picture with him and was so happy she was bouncing up and down. She saw the shirts an...d said if she had one she'd wear it everyday. I told her if she would, I would get her one. I have no doubt she will wear it with pride and tell all her friends about him. The funny thing was, when we got up to him, he asked her who yo make a picture out to and she said "ME!" She was hilarious and Taylor was happy to have a new fan. The show he put on tonight was amazing as usual and I can't wait for the next two!

Awesome entertainer! One of the best from American Idol.

6. clqu Sat. Dec. 7

Had a really good time. I loved his music and he was able to tell a story throughout the show that shared a bit of his life and journey that was interesting. Just wish the crowd would have been bigger for him.

7. Dec 5, 2013

Decided to finally see New Orleans and at the same time my favorite musician who was doing the Casino for three nights. Taylor does a totally high energy performance, his musicians are top notch, ...... Taylor not only sings American Idol classics but his own songs from his past records and also incorporates many many tags onto his songs, a mesmorizing experience when he goes totally into the zone. I would recommed his show to everybody, he has something that will please almost anyone.
: My favorite moment was when he tagged Reminiscing during Love The One You're With and his version of In The Ghetto. @
Setlist: Country Livin, Taking It To The Streets, In The Ghetto, Nineteen, Why Can't We Live Together, Love The One You're With, Seven Mile Breakdown

This is the 3rd time I've seen Taylor live and he out does himself every time! He is so affable and you know that he is enjoying himself. You can also see his SOUL and he has a GOOD one. He makes me smile and feel good the entire time........for all these reasons I voted for him to win American Idol!!!!!!!!!
ABSOLUTELY LOVE THAT GUY! (and I got a good picture with him too!!!)
- Favorite moment: When he put his arm around me for photo!

The entire performance of Taylor and his group was excellent and thoroughly entertaining . My boyfriend and I were moving to the music. The time went by too fast and we hated to see it end. Taylor is talented, personable , funny, and full of energy. He can really play that guitar !!! And the piano and harmonica. His back-up was likewise very good. We especially enjoyed the "kid". So young to have such talent with a guitar . We want to see and hear Taylor in concert again. Will check to see if he is playing on Vegas soon as we travel there periodically for fun and shows

I really enjoyed the show! Taylor was amazing with his songs, showmanship, and music. He was personalbe and he told some very funny stories. He is the kind of entertainer I like to see and hear!

I have waited for years to see Taylor Hicks in concert, especially since he made a residency in Las Vegas. The concert was very entertaining and Taylor had great commentary/comedy between performances.

Favorite moment: Getting to meet Taylor Hicks in person after the show, he signed autographs and took pictures with fans.


Taylor Joined Anders Osborne's 2nd Annual "Rock My NOLA Soul" Christmas Spectacular at Tipitina's Uptown Dec. 06, 2013. Taylor Hicks, who was appearing the same weekend at Harrah's New Orleans, dropped by and did a number with the band during the encore set.
And a surprise gift came when Taylor Hicks came onstage and offered his soulful vocals and harmonica playing for a twist-and-shout version of “Call Me Willie”, with some “Who Dat!” thrown in for good measure.


Fabulous line up for this show:

Anders Osborne: Guitar
Paul Barrere (Little Feat): Guitar
Luther Dickinson(N. Miss Allstars): Guitar, Mandolin
Billy Iuso: Guitar
John Gros (Papa Grows Funk): Keyboards
Carl Dufrene: Bass
(Jumpin') Johnny Sansone: Harp, Vocals, Accordion
Eric Bolivar: Drums
