American Idols Live! Tour Dates Revealed

Top 11 season 10 contestants will hit 45 markets beginning on July 6.

Someone else will be going home this week on “American Idol,” but no matter who it is, that person can sleep soundly in the knowledge that their summer will be packed with a grueling set of dates alongside 10 of their finalist pals on this year’s American Idols Live! Tour.

The dates for the traditional summer outing by the top 10 — only this year it will be the top 11 — is slated to kick off on July 6 at the Maverik Center in West Valley City, Utah, keeping the singers on the road through a September 10 date at the Blue Cross Arena in Rochester, New York.

The 45-date jaunt will feature solo and duet sets from Casey Abrams, Haley Reinhart, Jacob Lusk, James Durbin, Lauren Alaina, Naima Adedapo, Paul McDonald, Pia Toscano, Scotty McCreery, Stefano Langone and Thia Megia. The singers on the show have already gotten a once-in-a-lifetime lesson in the rigors of making it in the music business and performing on a big stage in front of adoring fans, but the schedule for the “Idol” tour is typically unforgiving, with shows nearly every night and only a few days off per week. Tickets for the tour go on sale on May 13.

The finalist pool will be down to five by the end of Thursday night’s show as the May 26th finale looms on the horizon.
