Fan of NBC’s The Voice may have coming their way this summer a live concert tour — though one sans the talents of megastar judges/recording artists Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green and Blake Shelton.
Rocker Levine seemingly announced on Twitter Monday an upcoming concert series for the Season 1 finalists, saying, “@javstwtr [aka Javier Colon] and [former contestant] @Casey_Weston are hitting the road in July for #TheVoice Live On Tour. Go check them out.”
Levine’s too-soon tweet was taken down shortly thereafter, but sources confirm to TVLine that an official tour announcement is in the works and should be expected within early this week.
Weston meanwhile continued the unauthorized news-breaking via her own Twitter feed, revealing that only “the Top 8” contestants will be featured on the tour — a claim confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter. Thus, the traveling show would include Beverly McClellan, Vicci Martinez, Dia Frampton, Nakia, Xenia, Frenchie Davis, Colon and Weston.
Now about those judges… Glaringly omitted from the unofficially reported rosters are The Voice‘s aforementioned swivel-chair captains. Christina, Blake et al were reportedly in talks to join the tour, but those plans were ultimately scrapped due to what THR calls “compensation issues.”
Do you wish the tour would dive deeper for its lineup of talent, inviting as many as the Top 12 or even 16? Will you dish out the big bucks to catch the live tour?
