‘Idol’ top 11 set tour dates

45-date 'American Idols Live!' tour to kick off July 6

Top eleven “American Idol” contestants will hit the road this summer on a 45-date tour across North America.

The “American Idols Live!” tour will kick off July 6 with a date at Maverick Center in West Valley City, Utah. Contestants showcasing their skills live will be Casey Abrams, Hailey Reinhart, Jacob Lusk, James Durbin, Lauren Alaina, Naima Adedapo, Paul McDonald, Pia Toscano, Scotty McCreery, Stefano Langone and Thia Megia.

With improved ratings this season over last and a somewhat improved economy, organizers are keen to avoid cancellations similar to last summer, when disappointing sales caused seven dates to be terminated and attendance was down for live music across the board.

The tour will arrive at the Nokia Theatre at LA Live in Los Angeles on July 15. New York dates include Nassau Coliseum on Long Island on Aug. 23, Albany’s Times Union Center Aug. 28, and Syracuse’s War Memorial Arena on Sept. 6.
