Last night’s Carole King duets on American Idol may have given fans a taste of what’s to come this summer when its Top 11 hit the road for the annual American Idols Live! Tour. Official dates have been announced for the 45-city trip, which kicks off July 6 in West Valley, Utah. The season 10 favorites will spend July and August traveling most of the continental U.S. (with one stop in Toronto) before wrapping things up September 10 in Rochester, NY. Tickets for the shows go on sale May 13, so if you’re still mourning the loss of Pia Toscano, mark your calendars accordingly.
