Phillip Philips Joins Matchbox 20 Onstage “If You’re Gone” – VIDEO

American Idol winner, Phillip Phillips and his band, engaged in some on stage antics as Rob Thomas and Matchbox 20 performed “If You’re Gone” last night (Feb. 27) at the Sands Event Center in Bethlehem, PA.

Phillip has been the opening act on Matchbox 20’s tour. The concert was the last on the band’s North American leg, so of course the hijinks ensued!

Make sure to watch the video all the way through. At the end Rob reveals what Phillip was doing off stage to make the band crack up.

    Fun! Always like to see the last night of tour antics. Looks like Phillip fit in well with the MB 20 crew.

    Thanks for sharing! Love Rob Thomas. It sounds like they had fun together and makes me feel happy.  Great way to start the morning :)

    It’s about having fun, a sense of humor and not taking yourself so seriously.  I’d much rather prefer performers who aren’t uptight about everything than those who are scripted. Phillip dedicated GX3 to Rob and said he has the most beautiful eyes he’s ever seen.

    I saw an interview of Phillip where he revealed that MatchBox Twenty always pulls a prank on their touring partner on the last concert day.  Phillip mentioned that Rob Thomas had told him that they could pull a prank on MatchBox Twenty in retaliation.  I’ve been waiting to hear what Phillip & Co.’s prank was going to be.

    The Phil/MB20 show was fabulous! I would have loved to have seen it again. Once was not enough!

    Rob Thomas is such an awesome singer and I love that he has this hilarious sense of humor. However, I have to admit that during the entire song, I kept worrying that he would hand P2 the mike and let him sing…..

    I don’t know if I can here put the video from this concert, but the other songs. If you want to, I’ll move the post to another thread.
    These are the songs which I could not find yesterday on youtube.

    This is the end of the previous clip, I don’t understand why it was cut, it’s very short.
