Carrie Underwood topped up an already successful February with more success. The Season 4 American Idol winner was touring the North East and selling out arenas wherever she went. Boston, Washington, Philly, Pittsburgh and Hampton were all interested in the stories she had to tell with her songs. Opening for her were The Swon Brothers who were also on a fourth season – they finished third on the 4th season of The Voice.
From the Canadian Idol franchise is Carly Rae Jepsen touring Florida. It takes more than one successful hit and being featured on another to make a touring go of it. Those numbers are not unusual for artists without a deeper catalogue of hits.
Meanwhile, JLo made $3.7M for four of her concerts in Vegas – she won’t be starving in the hedgerows after Idol is finished.
