'Idol' champ Jordin Sparks touring with Jesse McCartney this August
By Christopher Rocchio, 07/09/2008
Jordin Sparks will be hitting the road instead of the beach this August.
The American Idolsixth-season champ and singer/songwriter Jesse McCartney will co-headline Jesse & Jordin Live, a 16-date tour that is scheduled to kick-off August 5 in Sacramento, CA.
"I am really excited to be going out and sharing the stage with someone as talented as Jesse McCartney," said Sparks. "He brings a soulful voice, heart of gold and his good looks to the stage every night and I can't wait to share it with him."
The tour announcement has to be welcoming news for Sparks' fans, as she was forced to cancel several spring performances after suffering an "acute vocal chord hemorrhage." While the vocal injury was initially reported to be career-threatening, that was not the case and she recently performed at the Macy's Fourth of July Fireworks Spectacular.
"Jordin has the most incredible voice," said McCartney. "She's one of those pure talents you don't see a lot of in this business. I can't wait to get out there with her."
The dates and locations for the Jesse & Jordin Live tour are:
August 5 Sacramento, CA
August 7 Los Angeles, CA
August 8 Glendale, AZ
August 9 San Diego, CA
August 11 Salt Lake City, UT
August 13 Denver, CO
