(UPDATE 7/15/15) Equipped with a live backing band and an arsenal of serious singing talent, American Idol Live has gracefully cruised through its opening three dates of its 2015 summer tour in North America over the last week. 32 more stops will be made over the next six weeks, and ticket prices have remained firm on the secondary market.
The average secondary price for American Idol Live tickets is now $133.45, marking just a 1% increase from last week’s average of $132.08. The tour’s most expensive stop comes on August 2 at Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank, New Jersey.

Other top-priced shows include August 7 at Motorcity Casino Hotel ($195.11 avg./$51 get-in), August 3 at Veterans Memorial Auditorium ($185.93 avg./$61 get-in) and August 5 at Beacon Theatre ($162.38 avg./$57 get-in).
If searching for the tour’s cheapest stop, it will come on July 29 at Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom. That show owns a secondary ticket average of $70.88 and the cheapest ticket is $46. An August 9 show at Murat Theatre will be the second least expensive gig, with tickets averaging at $72.23 and get-in price starting at $34.
The American Idol Live 2015 Tour continues in North America through August 28, when it concludes at the Fox Performing Arts Center.
American Idol Live 2015 Summer Tour Begins Next Week
(UPDATE 6/30/15) It will be a summer jam-packed with singing talent as American Idol Live kicks off its national tour next week. Based upon the popular television show, the tour will officially begin on July 7 at Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater, Florida and run over 37 dates through the end of August. A considerable demand for tickets exists on the secondary market, too, as the average secondary price for American Idol Live tickets over the summer affair is $132.08.
Different for this year’s tour is the use of a live backing band, something that didn’t occur during its 2014 run. The tour will also feature the television show’s Top 5 artists as opposed to its usual 10. Nick Fradiani, Clark Beckham, Jax, Rayvon Owen and Tyanna Jones will round out the bill this summer.
The tour’s top-priced show comes on August 2 at Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank, New Jersey. That show currently owns a secondary ticket average of $212.32 and the get-in price, or cheapest available ticket, is $72. One other show will average above $200 over the summer run – August 7 at MotorCity Casino Hotel in Detroit, where tickets average at $208.50 and get-in price starts at $58.
Murat Theatre in Indianapolis will be the hosting site of the cheapest tour stop on August 9. Tickets for the Indy show own a median price of $78.59 and get-in price is $37. Other least expensive shows include July 29 at Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom ($80.43/avg.), July 19 at Durham Performing Arts Center ($89.76/avg.) and July 15 at Florida Theatre Jacksonville ($89.93/avg.).
American Idol Live! Summer Tour Dates Announced
(4/14/15) From the television to your local theater, American Idol Live is hitting the road for a 37-city tour beginning in July. The two-month engagement will exclusively hit U.S. venues through the end of August.
The tour kicks off on July 7 at Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater, Florida and will wind around the country through August 28, when it concludes at the Fox Performing Arts Center in Riverside, California. Theaters, concert halls and auditoriums will be primary destinations over the summer stretch of shows.
Other notable venues that the tour will stop at include Orlando’s Hard Rock Live, the Durham Performing Arts Center, New York City’s Beacon Theater, Chicago Theatre and the Mountain Winery in Saratoga, California.
General public will be able to purchase tickets for most shows beginning this Friday, April 17th via Ticketmaster.
