American Idol Live Tour adjusts schedule and disappoints fans in Kansas City
9:44 PM, Jul 7, 2010
KANSAS CITY, Missouri - The 2010
Idol Live Tour is shortening its tour and short changing some
fans, including those Kansas City. The concert promoter, Live
Nation, officially canceled eight shows this week. The list
includes the local show scheduled for Friday, August 27.
Kansas City, Omaha, Toronto, Buffalo, Cleveland, Winnipeg and
Portland, Ore. and Portland, Maine have been cut. Shows have been
moved up in cities such as Des Moines, Iowa; Minneapolis; Chicago;
and Toledo, Ohio. The 38 city tour will now end August 31, instead
of September 16, as planned.
Industry experts suggest that waning interest in this past
season, not just the economy, might be to blame for poor ticket
sales in select markets.
