It’s been seven years since Steven Tyler was a judge on Haley Reinhart’s season of American Idol. The two of them always seemed to have a special connection right from the start, and Steven always recognized Haley for her true talent.
Since Season 10 ended, Haley has kept in touch with Steven over the years. They both share the same lawyer, Dina LaPolt, and she recently attended his inaugural charity event called “Janie’s Fund”.
Now, Haley is set to open for Steven Tyler and the Loving Mary Band at Ribfest in Naperville, IL Saturday July 7th!
A night full of special guests, new songs, and a whole lot of Rock and Roll, Haley Reinhart put on one hell of a (sold out) show for those at Hollywood’s Troubadour late last Thursday night. It was her second show at the historic venue, where she hasn’t headlined since July of 2015. Opening for Haley were artists Steffan Argus and Drew Dolan.
Her first big solo public performance of the year was one for the books, where Haley brought fan favorites to the stage including, “Oh My!” for the first time in ages, this time including the rap bridge, but done in a style uniquely “Haley”. On several songs, Haley brought the crowd into the performance as they sung along on songs like “Let’s Start”, “Expensive Taste”, and “Light My Fire”.
Among the guest performers, Catie Turner from ABC’s debut season of American Idol, joined Haley on a duet of a Britney Spears classic, “Oops!… I Did It Again”. Scott Bradlee, creator of Postmodern Jukebox, was on keys.
Scott also accompanied the stage for “Sunny Afternoon”, from Haley’s third studio album, What’s That Sound? which he featured on. And of course, “Creep”.
All the way from Chicago, parents Harry and Patti-Miller Reinhart joined their daughter on stage to perform a few songs, including a three part harmony “Centerpiece”, and a mom-daughter duet of “White Rabbit”.
The Troubadour was the perfect place to premiere a new original song, a rousing and rollicking balls out, and possibly her hardest hitting song to date (sure to please the rocker fans), “Expensive Taste”.
One of the top highlights of the night was when Haley brought out her final special guest, Robby Krieger of The Doors to perform “Light My Fire”, which Robby wrote when he was just a teenager. It was truly a special moment to witness.
Be sure to check out some exclusive footage of the special guests and their kind words about Haley below:
