This year's 'American Idol' tour hits the St. Pete Times Forum in August



Whether you're Team Lynche or Team Bowersox (or even Team Kelly), you'll probably agree that American Idol's annual summer tour is usually a good thing -- at least if you like seeing a ton of talented singers in one place. Not everyone does.

But for the most part, American Idols Live has been a hit (check out our reviews from 2008 and 2009). And even though this season is still running strong, American Idol has already announced the dates for this year's American Idols Live Tour. As usual, it'll make a stop at Tampa's St. Pete Times Forum on Aug. 4. Look for your all your favorite Idols -- Aaron Kelly, Michael Lynche, Crystal Bowersox, Andrew Garcia, Casey James, Didi Benami, Katie Stevens, Lee Dewyze, Siobhan Magnus and Tim Urban -- to arrive ready to sing your socks off.

Tickets are scheduled to go onsale at 10 a.m. May 15 (no prices available just yet tickets are $40.50-$70.50, and they go onsale May 15). But considering the mixed reviews Idol has been getting this seasons ... are you guys into this show at all? Aside from the Big Mike homecoming angle, we're having trouble getting excited about this one.

Who among you plans to go to this show -- and who are you itching to see?
