David Cook is hitting the road.  The seventh-season American Idol champion has announced a 37-date concert tour.

Although a handful of the concerts will take place at non-college venues, most of the shows will be on college campuses.

"There's something inherently nostalgic about playing college shows. So many amazing acts used to do it, so it's nice to be able to bring that ideal back, in some small way," Cook told Reuters. 

"Besides, touring on a bus beats what we used to do, which was cram five guys into a 7 passenger van for one show, 13 hours away," he added.

Cook's tour will kick off on February 13 at Florida State University in Tallahassee, FL and continue through April 25 when it will end in Tulsa, OK at the University of Tulsa.

The non-college dates include shows at casinos in Biloxi, MS and Kansas City, MO.
