Will you be watching your favorite contestants on the American Idol 2014 summer tour? Starting this summer after the season 13 finale, you’ll get the chance to see the 2014 Top 10 finalists at a concert near you! Check the tour schedule here.

American Idol 2014 Top 10 Finalists

The American Idol summer tour will include Alex Preston, Caleb Johnson, CJ Harris, Dexter Roberts, Jena Irene, Jessica Meuse, Majesty Rose, Malaya Watson, MK Nobilette, and Sam Woolf.

See all of the tour event dates & location.

Congratulations to all of these artists and such a huge milestone. Making the tour cutoff gives them a guaranteed job for the summer with great opportunities all around. They’ll learn a lot about touring and live performances that they might not always discover from playing the weekly Idol stage shows.

Of course the summer tour is brutal and exhausting, but I imagine when they look back it’ll have been well worth the efforts. Even if they’re completely burned out by the time it’s over!

Which Top 10 contestant are you most excited to see on the American Idol tour for summer 2014?
