The American Idols LIVE! Tour 2011 is a summer concert tour in the United States, Canada and The Philippines that features the Top 11 contestants of the tenth season of American Idol. The 49-date tour started in West Valley City, Utah, on July 6, and its North American leg will end in Rochester, New York on September 10. 45 dates were originally planned but four extra dates were added due to high demand, including two final shows in Manila, Philippines, only the second time the show has travelled outside of North America after Singapore was added to the tour schedule in Season 3.

Show overview

In a break from the previous three years where the shows were essentially a series of mini-concerts by individually performers, this year there were more ensemble performances. Also unlike the previous three years, the individual performers did not perform according to their elimination order on American Idol, and the number of songs performed by each performer did not reflect their elimination order.

The show started with a group performance by the girls and the first half ended with a group performance. The first half featured solos from the first six eliminated contestants - Pia Toscano, Paul McDonald, Thia Megia, Stefano Langone, Naima Adedapo and Casey Abrams, while the Top 5 performed their solos in the second half. Duets and group performances interspersed the solo performances. The second half started with solos by the runner-up Lauren Alaina, and ended with solos by the winner Scotty McCreery followed by the traditional closing group performances.

Additional notes

  1. Lauren Alaina sprained her ankle backstage at the Portland show, and performed her next show with the injured foot strapped in a boot.
  2. The performance of Firework was removed from the setlist in shows starting from Rosemont, IL due to Lauren Alaina needing to rest her voice. However, it did return to the set starting with the Philadelphia PA show. Alaina did not appear in the first half in Columbus and Pittsburgh, but did appear in the second. However, she missed the Baltimore show completely, and reported that she was suffering from severe bronchitis.
  3. Paul McDonald was absent from the Providence show.
  4. The show at Albany on August 28, 2011 was postponed to September 4, 2011 due to Hurricane Irene that struck the East Coast of the United States on August 27.
  5. It was the second time that the American Idol LIVE! Tour traveled to Asia with The Philippines being the second and only country for this year that they traveled to outside the United States and Canada.
