American Idols Live! Tour Dates Announced: David Archuleta Coming Soon To An Arena Near You

The show's top 10 will hit 49 North American cities, starting July 1 in Glendale, Arizona.

The seventh season of “American Idol” is steadily nearing its May 21 finale, but that doesn’t mean the fun of “Idol” has to end with it.

While we still don’t know for sure who’s going to walk away with the “Idol” title, fans of the program will be able to catch this season’s eventual victor and the rest of their favorite finalists all summer long, thanks to the American Idols Live! Tour, which launches July 1 in Glendale, Arizona, and will make stops in 47 other U.S. cities before wrapping on September 13 in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

This summer’s run will feature live performances by this season’s top 10: Brooke White, the recently booted Carly Smithson , Chikezie, David Archuleta , David Cook , Jason Castro, Kristy Lee Cook, Michael Johns, Ramiele Malubay and Syesha Mercado. Tickets for the tour — which is being sponsored by Pop-Tarts — go on sale May 17.

“One of the key factors in the success story of ‘American Idol,’ is the unique experience of seeing today’s best undiscovered talent, perform live onstage each and every week,” the show’s creator, Simon Fuller, said in a press release. “We are truly excited that the American Idols Live! tour will once again give fans the chance to see the TV show come to life in their hometown.”
