After a season of low ratings, the American Idol Live! tour is tanking. Several shows have been canceled in cities across the country, is LA one of them?!
The tour got started last Thursday in Auburn Hills, Michigan and was scheduled to wrap up September 16th in Portland, Maine.
But now, seven dates have been axed from the show, including stops in Buffalo, New York; Cleveland, Ohio; Winnipeg, Manitoba; Toronto, Ontario; Portland, Maine; Omaha, Nebraska; and Kansas City, Missouri.
Organizers for the summer tour have not explained the reason for the cancellations. Their announcement comes just days after Lillith Fair also scrapped several tour dates because of the rough economic climate.
Why do you think Idol nixed the concert dates? Could it be fans’ disinterest in this season’s contenders, or possibly the sky-high ticket prices for concerts these days? Let us know what you think and check out [lastfm]Lee DeWyze[/lastfm] performing on the Idol Live! tour below.
