Soul Patrol Alert: Taylor Hicks Coming to Bally’s
When Taylor Hicks won season five of American Idol he was an unlikely champion with his salt and pepper hair and fanatic fans who became known as “The Soul Patrol.” His Idol 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 debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 and was certified RIAA Platinum.
After his “15 minutes of fame faded,” Hicks settled into a solid musical career that most recently has included a long run at the Paris Las Vegas casino, operated by Caesars Entertainment.
Now he will be coming back east during a break from his Vegas gig to perform at Bally’s Martini Bar. He is listed to perform Wednesday through Sunday from July 17 to July 27 as part of a tour of other Caesars properties across the country. He is also working on his first country album.
