Phillip Phillips Undergoes Successful Surgery, On Target for Tour Opening

by at . Comments

It's been a back and forth few weeks for Phillip Phillips since being named American Idol champion, but we can now confirm the singer has, indeed, undergone a six-and-a-hour surgery to remove especially large kidney stones that were too large to pass.

He's recovering and is on track to take part in every tour stop this summer.

Phillip Phillips Wins!

"Surgery went well," his rep told multiple media outlets this morning "He's resting and will be ready for the idol tour kickoff in July!"

Phillips fought through eight procedures throughout his Idol run, which ended in May with a victory over Jessica Sanchez.

"[America's] just seen a glimpse of what Phillip can do," his father told People. "We can't wait to get him well and 100 percent and really see how he can perform."
