  • Eight American Idol Tour Shows Cancelled

    Eight <i>American Idol</i> Tour Shows Cancelled - Tour to end August 31 instead of September

    Another tour has cancelled dates, further cementing the notion that the summer touring season has shit the bed, twice! The American Idol tour, usually a pretty reliable box office success, has axed eight shows, so now the tour will end August 31 Indianapolis, as opposed to two weeks later in Portland, Maine. Ouch. It is rough out there, with acts cancelling and cutting dates left and right, up and down, top to bottom. Weak sales and lack of interest are indicated reasons for the slumping sales and cancelled shows. The economy sucks; don't forget that.

    How can the touring industry combat this attrition? What suggestions do you have for the touring industry to boost their business?
