For those hoping to bob their heads to Phillip Phillips‘ hit single “Home” during the American Idols Live tour, good news! You’ll still get to. Though it was previously reported otherwise, the Season 11 champion won’t miss any of the American Idols Live tour when it kicks off in Detroit on July 6, reports E! Online.
The 21-year-old singer was originally planning to undergo kidney surgery after completing promotional obligations in New York following the finale. However, Phillips went straight to Georgia following his win and did press remotely from home. He has yet to have the surgery, as alternative methods appear to be working. He’s at least doing well enough that his doctors have given him the go ahead to embark on a 45-day tour, which would be difficult for someone even without kidney issues. Rest up, Phil! We’re looking forward to seeing your goofy facial expressions live.
