Twin Cities “American Idol” fans have until July 2 to get to know this season’s largely indistinguishable crop of contestants. That’s when the latest “American Idol Live” tour will hit Target Center, only the third date on the 40-city trek. Tickets go on sale May 3 at 10 a.m. for $33.50, $46 and $66 via the arena’s box office, AXS.com or AmericanIdol.com/tour.
Even with new big-name judges Mariah Carey, Keith Urban and Nicki Minaj, ratings for this season’s “Idol” have dropped significantly. For the last two weeks, however, viewership did pick up.
For those who haven’t been watching, the Season 12 finalists guaranteed to make it to Target Center this year are Amber Holcomb, Angie Miller, Burnell Taylor, Candice Glover, Curtis Finch Jr., Devin Velez, Janelle Arthur, Kree Harrison, Lazaro Arbos and Paul Jolley. An 11th cast member, Aubrey Cleland, will also join the tour after winning the “Fan Save” vote.
