Paul McDonald says in an interview with Kirstin Coachman that the American Idol Live! 2011 Tour will visit the Philippines after it completes it’s run in North America in September.
This is such amazing news! Looks like AEG and 19E is recognizing what a viable market the Philippines is. I predict that the Philippine tour stop will be the most watched in terms of attendance for any tour of American Idol.
How has the tour been going?
It’s been excellent so far. We’re only like, I think, five shows in, and we got about a thousand more to go. [laughs] We go through September, and we do a handful of Canada dates, maybe one or two. Then they take us over to the Philippines.
Wow, I’m pretty sure that’s a first with taking the tour overseas. What has been the most fulfilling part of the tour for you so far?
Oh goodness. I guess it’s just the whole vibe of pretending that we’re real rock stars for the summer. We’re singing karaoke and stuff, but the production is like a huge tour. We have six buses, six semis, we have catering, we have the whole VIP kind of like a very pro tour.
