The Idol Tour opens July 5 Manchester NH

The Idol tour opens July 5 in Manchester, NH.  I’ll be there!  This week, the Idols are all back in LA rehearsing for the big show.  In the meantime, a couple of little items.

Katharine McPhee gets a mention in the item.  Katharine describes getting mobbed by tourists and mentions that her upcoming album will definitely be Pop.  She says,  “It’ll be on the radio, on the Top 40 charts hopefully.”  thanks xoxcys has video from Taylor Hicks’s City Stages performance with his band The Little Memphis Blues Orchestra.  His entire performance can be found here.  The clip is awesome, don’t miss it.  That band is HOT. I still can’t believe that guy won American Idol, and I mean that in the best way possible…

A little late to the party, but here are more clips:
