American Idol tour will visit 39 cities starting in July

The winner of American Idol 5 and the top nine losers will all tour 39 cities together this summer, starting on July 6 in New Hampshire. It goes on to arenas in cities from East Rutherford, New Jersey, to Peoria, Ill. Tickets go on sale May 19, and the tour is once again non-ironically sponsored by Pop Tarts.

There’s no word what type of performances the tour will include, but MTV.com notes that for its “first three years, the tour featured a mix of solo and group numbers, but last year’s show featured each finalist singing at least three songs on his or her own.” Here’s the entire lineup, according to MTV.com:
