American Idol Live 2014 Summer Tour
Dates for the American Idol Live 2014 summer tour have been announced. As you can see, the venues are smaller than in the past. Here in Boston, where I live, the tour is headed to the Blue Hills Bank pavillion, which is an outdoor summer theater that seats about 5000. Phillip Phillips and O.A.R are also performing their this summer. The tour only has 2 concert stops in New England. In the past, they’ve played MA, CT, NH, ME and CT. Alex Preston won’t get a home town stop at the Verizon Arena in Manchester, NH where the tour has played every single summer.
Just as a comparison, at the height of Idol mania in Season 5, the tour played TWO nights in both Manchester and Worcester, one night in Providence and Portland, PLUS at least one night in Connecticut. The tour played around 60 dates that summer.
The Voice tour seems to be playing similar venues. The only New England stop, Lowell Auditorium, a little bit south of the New Hampshire border in MA, seats about 2,800.
