Phillip Phillips is performing tonight (Nov. 15) at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls. The concert will begin with an opening act at 8 p.m., followed by Phillips at 9 p.m. in Knowles Center. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.

The same day that Phillips claimed his victory in American Idol’s season 11 finale, the singer/guitarist released “Home,” and marked the highest debut on the Billboard Digital songs chart.  Then, during the final week of 2012, Phillips saw his debut album, “The World From the Side of the Moon,” cross the half-million sold mark, making it the fastest-selling ever debut from an Idol winner.
