Taylor Hicks lands in the news outside of the entertainment and tabloid fronts and instead manages to score big coverage on the political front - in Canada.
Taylor Hicks is not exactly running for office, nor could he in Canada, obviously, but he is featured in The Globe and Mail political section in a feature by Jane Taber. The Canadian news source cites Mr. Hick giving the Prime Minister of Canada, Stephen Harper and his young daughter and a pal face time in a special photo op after the show. Broadway World.com has the full set of pics snapped on this honorary type of occasion.
I must say I really love the vest ensemble, that Taylor Hicks is wearing, the shades of gray work very well on him. He's looking quite tan and fit as well. Following the Canadian performances of the National touring show of "Grease" he's heading South, far South actually to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida from what I understand.
Currently Mr. Hicks is advertising his August performance set for the 16th at one of his old stomping (whomping?) grounds, Smith's Olde Bar.
Taylor Hicks, through his official site and Twitter is offering a special ticket giveaway for the Smith's Olde Bar show. Details to be found on Taylor Hicks.com for all the necessary details should you want to try and score a few freebies. Oh, seems air and hotel not an inclusive in the win, so be aware you're on your own regarding how to actually get to Atlanta. "Grease" will also be an option for the avid fans, as the show will be in Atlanta August 11-16.
For "Grease" and of course, Taylor Hicks' full schedule "Grease" Facebook has the... word.
