American Idols Live! Tour 2007 was a summer concert tour in the United States featuring the top 10 contestants of the sixth season of American Idol, which aired in 2007. It was sponsored by Kellogg's Pop-Tarts. The 59-date tour started on July 6 and ended on September 23.


It follows in the tradition of other American Idol summer tours following the completion of each season in May.

Show overview

The show was largely dominated by ensemble performances. With the exception of Jordin Sparks, Blake Lewis and Sanjaya Malakar, every other performers each had only one solo performance. The first half ended with the Blake Lewis' set, while Jordin Sparks performed her set before the traditional final performance by all 10 performers.

  • Special occasions

    During the August 7, 2007 concert in Rosemont, Illinois, Gina Glocksen was surprised as her long-time boyfriend proposed to her following her duet with Phil Stacey.

    After Sanjaya Malakar's solo during the September 9, 2007 concert in Washington, D.C., Sanjaya's sister Shyamali surprised him onstage. She placed a Fanjaya crafted "birthday boy" crown on his head as she led the audience in singing "Happy Birthday" to Sanjaya on the eve of his 18th birthday.


    The 2007 tour turned out to be much less successful than the Season 5 tour. None of its first 30 shows were sellouts and only one stop bested the 93% capacity mark and that was the July 18 stop in Jordin Sparks' hometown of Glendale, Arizona. In addition 14 of the first 30 shows were below the 60% capacity mark. The lower attendance was blamed on the cast of contestants as well as the ticket prices. Nevertheless, due to the higher ticket prices, the tour managed to gross $22,659,383 with 378,129 tickets sold as totalled from the tour receipts of the 54 shows that reported to Billboard. It was ranked number 41 in Pollstar Year End Top 100 Tour for 2007 with a gross of 20.9 million from the 50 shows that reported to Pollstar.
