    Has anyone seen his show? What is your opinion? Worth seeing?

    If it's cheap and you're a fan, why not? Certainly very little buzz about it. That could work to your advantage if you'd like a relaxing evening of entertainment.

    I never watched Idol until I had half a dozen people tell me I had to because I was on tv. Apparently, a lot of people think I look like Hicks. In fact, one of my bosses a few years ago constantly referred to me as Taylor Hicks.

    I will be in town next week and am thinking about putting it to a test. I was thinking about wandering past the line waiting before the show to see if I get any kind of reaction.

    Two of my friends saw him at the end of June. Both RAVED about his show and said it's a must see. Wouldn't ya know...we arrive the night of Aug 20th and that's last day of show (scheduled so far).
    One friend is a former Radio DJ and fussy about his music. If he liked Taylor Hicks... everyone will:evillaugh

    Taylor Hicks at Bally's August 2012

    I just read that Taylor's stint has been extended until 8/25! You should check it out -- I've been reading RAVE reviews about the shows! :poke:

    Anyone think there's a chance of finding tickets cheaper than $30.00 anywhere?

    Taylor Hicks Groupon

    I purchased a Groupon about 2 weeks ago for 2 tickets for $30.00. The offer is still available.

    Enter Las Vegas, or 89103
    It was pretty easy, once you pay for the Groupon you call or email Bally's, (information on the Groupon) with the groupon number, they will give you your confirmation number when you choose the date you want to attend. I did have to email twice and call twice before they finally got back to me. Seems they received my message however two different rep's thought the other one had taken care of it, so happy that I called back. Looking forward to the show, happy to read he is getting rave reviews.

    What a great soulful singer!

    Just saw Taylor on 8-9-2012 at Bally's. What a great singer and harmonica player! He and his band put on a class act. Afterwards, I got his autograph on his t-shirt I bought, and a picture with him. He asked the person taking the picture to take it again because he was concerned that the first one didn't flash. He is very personable, likeable, concerned and downright genuine. I'd go see him again and again! Oh, and I'm 61 years old...not a teenybopper groupie!
