'American Idol' Live 2014 Tour Dates



American Idol Season 13 Top Ten


American Idol has announced the dates for the summer 2014 American Idol Live.

American Idol Live is the annual tour that brings the best singers of the latest Idol season to a city near you. 

It's a great opportunity to catch the newly crowned American Idol Season Thirteen winner in concert. And it doesn't stop there, because the rest of the top ten contestants from American Idol 2014 also perform on the tour. So, as long as your favorite contestant made it into the top ten, you are guaranteed you'll catch  them performing live in concert.

Plus, considering how many non-winning Idol contestants like Chris Daughtry have gone on to fame, despite being eliminated long before the season finale, you never know who will be burning up the charts in a few years. In that way, American Idol Live gives fans the opportunity to see some of tomorrow's stars performing live today. And, the tour offers all of this for far more reasonable prices than if you bought tickets to see each of these singers in their own headlining concerts.

This summer's tour features the top ten of Idol Season Thirteen, including  lesbian singer MK Nobilette, preschool teacher Majesty Rose, wildcard performer C.J. Harris, 17-year-old Jena Irene, third time contestant Caleb Johnson, Slapout, Alabama native Jessica Meuse, country singer Alex Preston, tractor driver Dexter Roberts, 16-year-old Malaya Watson and Florida teen Sam Woolf.

The 30-show concert tour launches in July and stops in major cities like New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago before wrapping in Nashville on August 31. Tickets are available now at www.aeglive.com. Here are the dates, cities, and venues for the 2014 American Idol Live tour:
