    • good request! :)
      i’m actually going to be in NYC in september so i was really hoping that there would still be shows near by when i’m there, but together with the sad news about Elise i realized i will be missing the tour. they’re in NJ a WEEK before i’m going. sucks… oh well, that’s part of living outside the US i guess.

  • Ha ha! They don’t even stop in the Rock & Roll Capital of the World! Guess they’ve seen the ratings plummeting here….The CW is now beating Idol in 18-34 viewers.

    • That’s hogwash. Check TV By The Numbers for accurate stats. Idol easily has the best demographics on Wednesday’s – by a huge margin.

    • That’s a bummer. Pittsburgh, Wilkes Barre. PA and NOT Cleveland?

  • Such a pity that Shannon won’t be on the tour. They’ve lost a customer because of it :(

  • Is there an “Ontario, California”? Because that confused the crap out of me for a minute when I saw “Ontario, CA”!! LOL My thoughts were “do you know how big Ontario [Canada] is?? You can’t get more vague on where they are playing than that!” The date is July 25, if you missed what I’m talking about.
    *Sidenote, Canada is also abbreviated as “CA”

    • It is in California. If you look to the other Canada dates, they are listed by territory (Toronto, ON).

    • Yes, there’s an Ontario in California. (If you doubt me, you can check via this cool new invention called the internet. Or you could reason that they wouldn’t do three California dates, then a Canada date, then another California date.) :-)

  • I’ll be going to the San Diego show and can’t wait to see our hometown girl Jessica Sanchez and hopefully celebrate her being named the American Idol!

  • I think the road map of this order is hilarious. I.e. Philly, Long Island, Maine, Rhode Island, then back to NJ.
