'American Idol' winner Caleb Johnson, runner up Jena Irene coming to Ruth Eckerd Hall for 'American Idol Live' tour
Last month, it was announced that this year's American Idol Live tour, which in years past has played arenas, would be coming to theaters this summer, including Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater and the Van Wezel Performing Arts Center in Sarasota.
With American Idol crowning a new champion Wednesday night, it's worth reiterating: New American Idol winner Caleb Johnson and runner-up Jena Irene are among the 10 finalists joining this year's tour, along with C.J. Harris, Jessica Meuse, MK Nobilette, Alex Preston, Dexter Roberts, Majesty Rose, Malaya Watson and Bradenton's own Sam Woolf.
The Ruth Eckerd Hall concert is July 18; tickets are $60.50-$350. Click here for details.
