American Idol has announced the dates and locations of its American Idols Live! 2011 concert tour.

The 45-date North American tour will kick off July 6 in West Valley City, UT and continue for just over two months before coming to a close on September 10 in Rochester, NY.

The tour will feature performances by American Idol Top 11 tenth-season finalists Casey Abrams, Haley Reinhart, Jacob Lusk, James Durbin, Lauren Alaina, Naima Adedapo, Paul McDonald, Pia Toscano, Scotty McCreery, Stefano Langone, and Thia Megia.

This year's Idol tour will be the first to feature the season's Top 11 finalists rather than the usual Top 10.
