Yep, it’s going to be a reality show double header as Ryan Star, a contestant on the second season of Rockstar Supernova joins Idol Season 7 winner David Cook on his spring tour.
From the press release:
Mark Burnett Records/Atlantic recording artist Ryan Star has announced details of a major U.S. tour. The acclaimed New York-based rocker will join David Cook for the trek, kicking off February 13th at Florida State University’s Club Down Under in Tallahassee (see itinerary below) with a special hometown headline performance at The Bowery Ballroom on March 17th. The dates then continue through late April. The tour heralds the release of Star’s long awaited label debut, “11:59, ” which arrives everywhere this summer. The album is preceded by the single, “Last Train Home, ” which is impacting now at Hot AC radio outlets nationwide. The track is currently available via iTunes and all digital services, while a companion video has just completed production and is slated to premiere shortly.
Interesting. Like David, Ryan is probably looking to snare new fans in the college community too.
