‘American Idol’ Tour Cancels Shows Due to Poor Ticket Sales

Jul 7, 2010  •  Post A Comment

Eight shows in the "American Idol" Live! Tour 2010 have been canceled due to poor ticket sales in cities ranging from Omaha to Toronto, the New York Post reports.

It is unclear whether the tepid sales were a result of the economy or a dying-down of interest in the television show, the story says.

"It may be symptomatic of the fact that the series seemed to have less excitement around it this year than in years past, which I think translates into the public’s interest in seeing them live," Gary Bongiovanni of concert trade magazine Pollstar tells the newspaper.

The show was also canceled in Kansas City, Buffalo, Cleveland, Winnipeg, Portland, Ore., and Portland, Maine, the article says.


  1. Really the economy is terrible. It’s not changing only for the worse. The reason unemployment shows going down is because the won’t approve an extention and people are starving out here!

  2. I’m sorry, I’ve bought tickets to a few shows this summer – you actually couldn’t pay me to see this year’s crop of so-called Idols. I’m not in a field that the economy is apt to decimate, but nobody paid any attention when so many were calling it the most boring season of Idol ever. I went last year… not as good as 2003 but good. This year? Even the tweens don’t want to go.
