American Idol Tour announced!

Casey Abrams may have just left the “American Idol” competition, but his fans will still get a chance to see him on the “American Idols Live!” tour this summer. And now they know exactly when and where they’ll be going after dates for the trek were announced yesterday. The tour kicks off July 6th in Utah before wrapping up September 10th in Rochester, New York. This year’s show will feature eleven performers after the “Idol” judges used their lone save on Casey earlier this season. That means the top five — Haley Reinhart, Jacob Lusk, James Durbin, Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina — will perform alongside ousted singers Naima Adedapo, Paul McDonald, Pia Toscano, Stefano Langone, Thia Megia and Abrams.

The 2011 tour will also feature different venues. Randy Phillipps, CEO of tour promoter AEG Live, tells Billboard.com that the shows are moving “back indoors” after hitting mostly amphitheaters last year. Tickets go on sale May 13th.
