'American Idol' Cancels Tour Dates

'American Idol' Cancels Tour Dates

The 'Idol' Live! 2013 Tour of season twelve finalists gets cut short by ten tour dates due to production rehearsals.

The American Idol Live! 2013 Tour has been narrowed down to 30 shows from the original 40-date schedule lined up last month. All ten tour dates before the July 19 stopover in Kent, Washington have been called off due to production rehearsals that have been pushed by a couple of weeks, affecting the first third of the tour itinerary.

"The 'American Idol Live!' concert scheduled for June 29 at Chaifetz Arena has been cancelled," a statement on the concert venue's website said. Surprisingly though, it announced the cancellation of not just the kick off show but the other nine shows following it, with the statement ending with, "The 'American Idol Live!' tour now begins on July 19 in Kent, WA and ends in Nashville on August 31."

Apart from St. Louis, Missouri, hometown of finalist Curtis Finch, Jr. and host of the tour opener, other cities that will no longer be visited by the season twelve finalists are Kansas City, Minneapolis, Detroit and Rosemont in Illinois, Tulsa, Broomfield, Las Vegas and Ontario and Oakland in California.

This recent development has further fanned speculations that the once most-popular TV franchise is indeed struggling, with tickets to the tour probably not selling so well which may have caused the tour to be cut down. If it's any indication, current champion Candice Glover's and runner-up Kree Harrison's singles have both tanked, the lowest-selling singles ever of any "Idol" winner or top two finalists, preceded by the continued downward spiraling of the show's ratings.

"American Idol Live!" 2013 Tour canceled shows:

  • June 29 - St. Louis, MO (Chaifetz Arena)
  • June 30 - Kansas City, MO (Sprint Center)
  • July 02 - Minneapolis, MN (Target Center)
  • July 05 - Detroit, IL (Joe Louis Arena)
  • July 06 - Rosemont, IL (Allstate Arena)
  • July 08 - Tulsa, OK (BOK Center)
  • July 10 - Broomfield, CO (1STBANK Center)
  • July 12 - Las Vegas, NV (Mandalay Bay Events Center)
  • July 13 - Ontario, CA (Citizens Business Bank Arena)
  • July 14 - Oakland, CA (The Oracle Arena)
