American Idol Tour Gets Voted Off Early

By

No more Simon Cowell, relatively disappointing finale numbers, and now more slightly bad news for the formerly invincible franchise: This year's American Idol Live! Tour will end eight shows early, wrapping up August 31 in Indianapolis instead of September 16 in Portland. No official statement has been made, but it's probably safe to assume that the shows weren't canceled because ticket sales were too good. One possible reason: people embarrassed to attend an event that has an exclamation point in the middle of its name? [AP]
