After being postponed late last summer, Haley Reinhart was finally able to take on her first ever headlining European Tour. While it was short but sweet, Haley visited ten different cities starting in Poland late May, and ending in Ireland early June. Europe has waited a long time to see Haley on a solo endeavor, and it was definitely worth the wait.
Backed by her full band, some of which returning from Haley’s U.S. Better Tour, their chemistry was undeniable, consisting of (from left to right as pictured below) Music Director & Keyboards: Jesse Elder, Drums: Ray Moore, Guitar: John Notto, Bass: Darwin Johnson.
Haley debuted new outfits, new covers, and some would even say a new energy on stage for the diverse European crowds. Enjoy the highlights from every show on tour below:

Haley’s new album is due to be out this summer. Stay tuned!
Haley Reinhart opened up for The Rigs this past Thursday night at the legendary Troubadour in Hollywood, California. It was Haley’s first time at the venue, and she definitely made her mark on that stage.
As of late, most of Haley’s local L.A. shows have been small acoustic sets. This time, she brought a full band, and everything was bigger and better! Dressed in all black, Haley took the stage along with her many band mates in front of the sold out crowd.
They opened the show with Haley’s soon-to-be released first single off the EP, “Better”:
Second song from her setlist was “Good or Bad”, which Haley introduced to us acoustically at Room 5 back in April:
Special guest Casey Abrams was then brought to the stage to perform the first song they wrote together,”You Were There”:
The second special guest of the night was Scott Bradlee, from Postmodern Jukebox. There to play piano for “Creep”:
To pay tribute to Amy Winehouse on the anniversary of her death, Haley then jazzed it up with “Gee Baby, Ain’t I Good To You:”
Another song confirmed to be on the upcoming EP, her ballad “Love is Worth Fighting For”:
Last but not least, Haley and the band got funky and gave us the best performance to date of “My Cake”:
Haley has really blossomed over the last few years, her stage presence was stellar, and she performed as confident as ever. Can’t wait to see what else is in store.
Haley Reinhart, Scott Bradlee and Postmodern Jukebox are set to perform “Creep” on The Josh Wolf show on CMT.
About The Josh Wolf Show:
From executive producer Chelsea Handler comes The Josh Wolf Show, CMT’s first original late-night show starring comedian Josh Wolf. Best known for his recurring role on Chelsea Lately and host of Shark After Dark, Wolf will examine pop culture through practical sensibility and the lens of everyday people, while showcasing his self-deprecating humor and unique outlook on life.
Air time is Saturday, July 4th, at 11pm ET/PT, 10pm CT.
Haley was back in New Orleans spending some time with her family at Jazz fest last week. Conveniently, Haley’s dad Harry Reinhart was able to accompany her on guitar to help do some shows down in New Orleans as well later that week.
On the morning of April 29th, they played for a Bose company conference at the Hyatt Regency, New Orleans.
Haley and her dad performed an acoustic performance of “Creep” at the event, which you can watch below:
Later on that day, Haley surprised the company and did a late night set for their party at the Hard Rock Cafe, New Orleans.
Sounds like an awesome day for those Bose employees! Haley was even gifted a pair of sound proof Bose headphones.
Haley Reinhart, Casey Abrams and Dylan Chambers put on another great show at the Room 5 Lounge in Hollywood last Wednesday night. The show was made possible thanks to Dylan, who went on first at 10pm and opened the show with an entertaining charming set.
Next on was Casey, who started his set with a few of his own songs. He even mashed up Jason Derulo’s “Talk Dirty to Me” with his song “Dry Spell”. After that, it didn’t take long for Haley to join him up on stage and sing with him for the rest of his set.
Haley creeped up on stage to play her “hand trumpet” for “Almost Like Being in Love”:
Casey then teased Haley for barging in on his set, telling her that now she has to stay and sing more songs with him. So of course she stayed and they went on to sing Casey’s song “Never Knew What Love Could do”, where Casey invited Haley to share a seat with him:
Next song up was “Stuck in London”, a song from Casey’s debut album which always gets a fantastic crowd reaction:
They also brought back a popular cover of theirs that they hadn’t done in awhile, “Sail”:
It was then Haley’s turn, and with her she had friend and fellow singer/songwriter Anders Grahn to play guitar and do backup vocals. Anders and Haley have written a few songs together now. They first met at a song camp in Santorini Greece, where they wrote “Better”.
Haley started off her set with a brand new song called “Lover Girl”, that as she explains in the video, may or may not make the upcoming EP:
LYRICS (might not be 100% correct):
Next was “Better”, as stated earlier, Haley and Anders wrote this song together on the first day of their songwriting camp. It was a treat to watch it performed by the people who created it:
Haley said it’s tradition to do a new Beatle’s cover at every Room 5 show, so her and Anders gave us a beautiful rendition of “Don’t Let Me Down”:
The second new song she debuted for us that night was “Good or Bad” which may also make the EP as well:
LYRICS (might not be 100% correct):
Casey was then brought back up on stage to perform with Haley and Anders for the rest of the show, they started with a jazzy acoustic amazing version of “Night and Day”:
The show was almost over, but the crowd at this sold out show were in for a real treat. Haley gave a sensational acoustic performance of her highly popular “Creep” cover. Less jazzy this time around, but still the same singing arrangement. It was nothing short of amazing to hear live. Do yourself a favor and have a listen below:
Last but not least, to close out the show Haley and Casey sang another popular cover of theirs (and Postmodern Jukebox), an epic (and hilariously entertaining) performance of “All About That Bass”:
Yet another amazing sold out (well deserved) show by Dylan, Casey and Haley. They are all so talented and are the kindest most down to earth people, which doesn’t go unnoticed and is probably the reason their shows keep selling out.
I got to talk to Haley, and she said her EP is moving along quickly, and should be out this summer! There are lots more new songs we have yet to hear, and a few will be left for a surprise once the EP is out. I also asked about the possibility of her own tour for her EP, it’s definitely a possibility, stay tuned.
As for the Postmodern Jukebox tour coming up, Haley’s really excited about it and is so proud of what her and Casey have been able to do with them. Check to see if Haley’s coming to a city near you here, & buy tickets at pmjlive.com!
Postmodern Jukebox’s European tour has recently come to an end. They started their journey early February in the United Kingdom, traveled all across Europe and ended it right back where they started, in the United Kingdom on March 22nd. Haley Reinhart was unable to be apart of the first half of the tour, but later joined them for the second half from March 9th-22nd.
Haley got to sing in places like Germany, France, Czech Republic, the UK, and more! Haley whipped out some of her most memorable American Idol dresses for this tour, taking us all on a trip down memory lane. Maybe you’ll recognize some of them, from performances such as “Rolling In The Deep”, or “Moanin”. Either way, she looked as gorgeous and happy as ever to be on stage!
Over the last few weeks I have gathered the best photos and videos of Haley’s performances from this tour. Please watch and enjoy, because you won’t regret it!
For those who may be interested, I asked fellow big time Halien “@HaleysTusk” (who provided the video above, check out his YouTube channel, filled with tons of awesome Haley videos) who flew all the way from Seattle to London to catch the last show of the PMJ European tour to write a review of the show for everyone to read. Enjoy.
Postmodern Jukebox tour Finale at the Indigo O2, London England
When you go to Postmodern Jukebox show, you can expect to be highly entertained with an infusion of talent, humour and energy. Add to that, a final show of the tour in front of the biggest crowd PMJ had ever performed in front of in a major city? You can expect a singularly epic and memorable show. That is what you got the night of March 22nd, 2015 at the IndigoO2 in London.
I got to go to the Meet and Greet before the show, you can sense among the performers they knew how special this was going to be. Don’t get me wrong, there were no nerves present, they were all ‘cool cats’ as we got treated to performances of “Habits” from Haley and “Maps” from Morgan James, Ariana Savalas and Mykal Kilgore at sound check. There was definitely anticipation in the air.
Outside, the anticipation was greater, as PMJ fans began lining up 3 hours ahead of the show, dressed in their finest vintage attire.
There was a 50th Anniversary concert of the remaining members of The Who that was going to be going on at the same time as PMJ’s show. Many of the packed crowd in the arena were dressed in Union Jacks, a majority of their fans in the ‘older’ age range. It wasn’t lost on me the difference between the energy of the larger number of fans of the Who to the smaller, yet more enthusiastic fans lining up to see PMJ. Don’t get me wrong, there was a wide age range of fans in the PMJ community, I met PMJ fans who were grandfathers, who were going with their daughters, groups of youthful, excited fans, all in great anticipation of PMJ, many had already seen a show on this tour, or the last time PMJ made it through Europe.
Once the Indigo opened their doors, the floor filled up quickly as helpful ushers were all around to assist guests to their seats. You would expect the PMJ fans who would be on the floor to be the ones dressed up in Vintage gear, but as I headed up to my balcony seat, I saw that fans seated up there were also dressed up in Vintage wear. There was a couple who sat behind my seat, the excitement for the show brimming as they attempted to take a selfie of themselves dressed in their vintage attire. I offered to take the picture for them. I had to laugh when the lady handed me her phone to take the picture, as the camera app they had on the phone had a vintage design. The Photo that would come out, would look ‘old’ or vintage… even their technology had a vintage theme . They thanked me for taking the picture and resumed being affectionate with each other.
I decided that my balcony seat was too far, and I wanted to feel the energy that would come from PMJ’s show, so I made my way down to the quickly filling up floor in front of the stage. Some thoughts on what I saw.
Haley Reinhart: The world is her Oyster, she sent chills with her stirring performance of “Creep”, for me, the best performance of the night (I’m slightly biased ) She displayed her cheeky side mixed with a little irony in her performance of Habits and dove into the fun of All About That Bass as she beautifully harmonized with Morgan and Ariana. She has never disappointed in the many live performances I’ve seen. Among so much talent, she brought up her game and displayed all of her promise and potential, yet leaving a sense that there’s so much more to discover about her.
Casey Abrams: What can I say about this man… Controlled Chaos? Casey has done a TON of touring on his own and has learned to finesse his stage presence, always approaching the edge of insanity but never losing sight of his ingrained musicality, a force to be reckoned with, that you don’t mind when he upsets your notion of music until you realise, there is a method to his madness. Always entertaining and always full of energy. Be prepared for a musical work out. PMJ’s Tasmanian Devil
Scott Bradlee: The steadying paternal influence of this whole affair. His fingers skipped and flowed over his keyboard effortlessly providing an upbeat, yet loose structure to the show. Having talked to him after the show, I’m struck by his humility, you can see in his eyes the gratitude of seeing his efforts, with his musical family, being rewarded by the response of the fan base he has carefully nurtured. He’s not ready to rest on his laurels, striking while the iron is hot, already planning his next step as he readies for a US PMJ tour.
Morgan James: Her cover of “Fooled around and Fell in Love” on youtube strikes me to my core as she weaved a bluesy tapestry of vocal gymnastics. Hearing her sing live was definitely one of the things I looked forward to in this show. She did not disappoint, in her powerful and finessed cover of “Sweet Child of Mine” as she flexed those Juliard trained vocals of hers… As with the other PMJ ladies, her voice was equally spectacular when she harmonized with Haley and Arianna
Mykal Kilgore: I did not know much about Mykal, but Scott perfectly cast him as the MC of the proceedings. The man had the crowd in the palm of his hand with wit, humour, flawlessly moving things along with energy and aplomb.
Ariana Savalas: Of the PMJ ladies, I knew the least about Ariana, but she held her own with the rest, infusing a ‘change up’ in her performance demeanor. While Haley and Morgan provided powerhouse vocals, Ariana was more subtle, combining a Femme Fatale ‘wickedness’ and playfulness as a contrast. She was also adept at using humour within her performances to keep the crowd entertained. I met her briefly after the show and I sensed a real sweetness in her as she spoke to us.
The rest of PMJ were also very friendly, the musicians keeping pace with the manic differences in the performers they supported. They followed Scott’s lead perfectly, not a sour note or misplaced timing. Adam Kubota and Chip Thomas provided a solid back bone of rhythm while Ben ‘The Sax Guy’ kept things live and upbeat in the sax section.
Scott’s addition of Christopher Erk’s tapping energy and the LA Follies’ flourishes showed that Scott is mindful of presenting a full colour of experiences and energy you can expect from a Postmodern Jukebox event. That’s what you get when you go to a Postmodern Jukebox show, a full showcase of entertainment textures to dazzle your senses. A good time is guaranteed for all.
