Taylor Hicks is - and has been - a very busy man. One might think the winner of American Idol 5, the highest rated season of the show ever, would want a break from the pomp and circumstance of celebrity life. But not Taylor Hicks. The 36-year-old Birmingham, AL, native has been working hard: after releasing two successful albums, hitting No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and appearing in a Broadway production of Grease, the leader of the "Soul Patrol" has taken up residency in Nevada, appearing regularly in Las Vegas for live concerts.
For those lucky enough to be in Reno, NV, during the first week of July, Taylor Hicks will be appearing at the famous Sammy's Showroom for five nights. From July 3 to July 7, Harrah's of Reno will feature an exclusive performance every night, offering both affordable general admission tickets as well as even more appealing VIP tickets. However, perhaps the most tempting of all is their limited "Meet & Greet" VIP package, wherein ticket holders get the opportunity to meet and speak with the legend himself immediately following the show. Young fans and veteran "Soul Patrollers" alike can enjoy the show before moving on to all that Reno has to offer.
