DETROIT (WWJ) – American Idol will heat up arenas across North America, when American Idol Live! returns for another summer jaunt, showcasing performances by this season’s top 11 at Joe Louis Arena on Sunday, August 7 at 7 pm.
American Idol Live! Tour 2011 lineup promises to be the most memorable yet given the diverse and daring talent on the roster, and it’s hitting markets all across North America with 45 dates confirmed.

American Idol remains the #1 rated show in America, watched more than any other programming, and it’s because of the amazing talent.
This year, iconic judges Randy Jackson, Steven Tyler, and Jennifer Lopez went through a tight race to narrow the contestants down for America to decide who will be the next big star.
Watching American Idol at home is always enjoyable, but seeing these artists live is an experience. Past tours have featured current pop luminaries such as Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, David Cook, Adam Lambert, Lee DeWyze and so many more.
Every summer, the tour keeps Idol alive in arenas everywhere allowing the audiences the chance to get up close and personal with their favorite contestants. This top eleven is sure to have crowds on their feet singing along to every word.
