The platinum-selling recording artist will play the Manhattan venue July 25 at 8 PM; doors will open at 6 PM.

"In addition to his impressive vocal range, harmonica and guitar versatility, this show allows Hicks to fully explore the genre of rock and roll music," according to press notes. "Taylor's country roots mixed with his love for R & B and jazz music make for a truly unique sound."

Hicks was named "American Idol" in 2006, besting runner-up Katharine McPhee. Born in Birmingham, AL, Hicks toured the Southeastern U.S. during his teenage years and released two independent albums. Following his "Idol" win, Hicks signed a recording contract with 19 Records Limited/Arista Records. His eponymous debut album, "Taylor Hicks," debuted in the #2 spot on the Billboard 200 charts and was later certified as a platinum album. Hicks' memoir is titled "Heart Full of Soul: An Inspirational Memoir About Finding Your Voice and Finding Your Way."

Highline Ballroom is located in Manhattan at 431 West 16th Street. For tickets, priced $25 in advance and $30 at the door, call (212) 414-5994.
