American Idol Live Tour 2012 Comes to San Diego

Season 11 AI tour Live at Valley View Casino Center

American Idol fans have something to be excited about! After what was the best season of American Idol yet, the contestants of Season 11 are headed on tour and will be in San Diego in one month. On July 26th, hottie/winner, Phillip Phillips, and his fellow contestants will be performing at the Valley View Casino Center (aka The Sports Arena to native San Diegans like me).

After eleven years of being an avid fan of the show, I am FINALLY going to see the cast perform live, and am beyond excited. I’ve set a Google Alert for the set list reveal since I am on pins and needles to find out what they are going to sing. If I had my drothers, Phillip will sing Volcano, Jessica will sing I Will Always Love You, Joshua will sing When A Man Loves A Woman, DeAndre will sing This Woman’s Work (even though he never sang it on the show, only in auditions), and Heejun will sing A Song For You, however I don’t expect a phone call from the production team asking for my advice anytime soon.

Regardless of what they decide to perform I am confidant that it will be an amazing show. The talent of this year’s contestants superseded the previous years by far.
