HAGERSTOWN - American Idol 2006 Taylor Hicks is coming to Hagerstown.
Hicks will perform July 6 at The Maryland Theatre, and the theater's director said Thursday that fans might want to line up the night before tickets go on sale at the theater's box office next weekend.
Tickets for the Friday night show go on sale April 14 at 8 a.m. Tickets will be available only at the box office that day to give local residents the first chance to buy them, according to Bruce Torres, president of Cabana Cove Concerts.
Tickets are expected to sell "very, very quickly," Torres said Thursday afternoon.
"He's one of the hottest things in music right now," said Torres, who called Hicks' live performances "amazing."
"He throws some jazz and blues in the middle of a mix of songs," Torres said.
Hicks' music is "bluesy and soulful" and he connects with the audience at his mostly standing-room-only concerts, Torres said.
