David Cook will be out on the road this summer. He’ll tour as a headliner, part of a Pop tour with familiar 90’s and 00’s acts and with another beloved American Idol winner.

You last saw the American Idol season 7 champ performing with season 8 winner, Kris Allen on the “Great Idol Reunion” special earlier this month, celebrating 20 seasons of American Idol. The two singers toured through Europe last year. Now the singers will play Disney’s “Eat to the Beat” concert series on September 4 and 5 at the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival in Orlando, Florida. The two will perform at the America Gardens Theatre stage.

On the American Idol special, David and Kris joined other American Idol luminaires to perform a duet of the 90’s rock song “Dreams” by Cranberries.

The singer recently dropped a new single “TABOS”

David recently released a new single “TABOS” which is an acronym for ‘this will all be over soon’ which sounds really like a downer, but it’s not,” David explained in a recent interview with 7NewsDC

On Sunday May 1, David took part in the annual Race For Hope, to raise money for brain cancer awareness and research. The singer ran his first race in 2009, the day after his older brother Adam Cook died of the disease. It’s the 15th anniversary of the event, which has raised over $36 million.
