It’s been 5 years since the world was first introduced to Haley Reinhart on American Idol. Since then, we have witnessed some pretty great accomplishments. Such as her debut album “Listen Up!“, or the release of her crowd funded music video for “Show Me Your Moves“. Putting out videos that have received millions of hits with Postmodern Jukebox, and going out on tour with them. Recording her own rendition of Elvis’ “Can’t Help Falling in Love” which blew up in an Extra Gum commercial. And just recently the release of her sophomore album, “Better“. Finally, Haley Reinhart is out on her well deserved first ever headlining tour, “The Better Tour” in support of her new album.
Joined by a full band (John Notto on guitar, Ray Moore on drums, Jacob Lutrell on keys, and Thomas Drayton on Bass), Haley put on an hour and a half set, performing every song from the new album “Better“, along with a few songs from the first album and some covers. Fans were able to purchase V.I.P. tickets, which allowed them early entry in the venue to experience part of soundcheck, and a meet and greet with Haley.
The U.S. tour stopped in 17 cities, starting in Petaluma, CA and ending Asbury Park, NJ. Haley will be extending the tour in parts of the UK and Europe in September-October.
