HAGERSTOWN-"Everybody doing good on a Sunday night?" Taylor Hicks asked the near sellout crowd at The Maryland Theatre. "It's Friday," a few hundred fans yelled back. "I forget nights," the "American Idol" winner said, scratching his salt-and-pepper hair. It would be hard to blame Hicks for forgetting what day it is, as the performer has been on the road since last fall, touring and promoting his eponymous compact disc. Backed by a tight five-piece band, Hicks sang covers of Chuck Berry, Marvin Gaye and other soul artists, mixed with tunes from his CD, such as "Just To Feel That Way. " In a bygone era, concertgoers showed their appreciation of rock stars by illuminating darkened theaters with lighters.

Nathan Granner, one of the founding members of The American Tenors, said he and fellow members love touring in their RV, which will make a stop Tuesday, Nov. 8, at The Maryland Theatre in downtown Hagerstown as part of the Hagerstown Community Concert series. "It's like a tour bus, except it's an RV - so it's much cooler," he said laughingly during a telephone interview from Kansas City, Kan.
