Sanjaya Returns: 'Idol' Top 10 Book Busy Summer Tour Schedule

American Idols Live Tour has 56 shows scheduled from July-September.

It will be a couple more weeks until we find out who the new "American Idol" winner is, but one thing's for sure: by the end of the summer they're going to be fried ... and not from laying around soaking up the sun, either. The American Idols Live 2007 Tour schedule has been released, and it will take this year's top 10 finalists on a three-month, 56-date trek across the U.S. — and Toronto — that will have remaining finalists Blake Lewis, LaKisha Jones, Jordin Sparks and Melinda Doolittle belting their signature covers and group sing-alongs through all of July, August and September.

The tour kicks off on July 6 in Sunrise, Florida, and is currently scheduled to wrap up on September 22 in Manchester, New Hampshire. Joining the final four on the outing will be ousted contestants Chris Richardson, Haley Scarnato, Gina Glocksen, Chris Sligh and the most famous cast-off of all, Sanjaya Malakar. Phil Stacey is also set to perform on the tour — unless his commitments to the U.S. Navy conflict with the schedule (see "Phil Stacey Reveals Why He Might Have To Bail From 'Idol' Tour").

If the finalists can take any consolation in a schedule that affords them about a day and a half off per week, on average, it's that at least they're not playing the 60 dates last year's finalists slogged through. Then again, there are some open days in there that could be filled if the Fanjayas demand them, so who knows?
