Nine American Idol 2013 Tour Dates Cancelled

American Idol 2013 Top 10 Week

I hope someday we’ll again be able to report some good American Idol news, but that time isn’t now. The latest bad news to plague the dwindling series is that nine of the American Idol Summer Tour dates has been cancelled.

The tour was supposed to kick off June 29 but will now start July 19 and go through August 31. Or at least that’s the plan now. Don’t be surprised if more shows are cut.

“Due to production scheduling changes, the American Idol 2013 Tour will now begin on July 19th and go through the summer until August 31st,” a spokesperson said. “The Idols look forward to performing in 30 venues across the country.”

So they’re claiming it’s “production scheduling changes.”

The Dates affected:

  • June 29 St. Louis, MO Chaifetz Arena
  • June 30 Kansas City, MO Sprint Center
  • July 2 Minneapolis, MN Target Center
  • July 5 Detroit, Michigan Joe Louis Arena
  • July 6 Rosemont, IL Allstate Arena (rescheduled for August 12 in Trenton, NJ)
