@Terrah1982 shares her exciting “American Idol Live Tour” day at Arco Arena in Sacrmento, CA.
The evening started out pretty well with Didi Benami who did a solid job with ”Lay It On Me” by The Rescues…
Friday night (August 13) at the Staples Center saw the return of all top 10 “American Idol” season-nine finalists to Los Angeles for the American Idols Live! Tour.
“… it was incredible how much better these singers were outside of context of the show that made them famous in the first place.”

“I felt strangely at home; maybe because I’d already been to a show and knew what to expect, or maybe because I knew this was a part of my life that I truly love…”

“I have to say of all the idols Didi took her time and spoke to each and every person she could. I appreciate how attentive she was to every person.”
Team Aaron was out in full force last night at the Giant Center.
“Every year, the Idol contestants make short music videos, featuring the contestants hanging out in their “cool” Ford Mustang or Fiesta. Well, the same is true on the American Idol concert tour and then some.”
Given, though, that everyone was in the same building, and everyone seemed intent on projecting a one-big-happy-family vibe, it was strange that there weren’t more collaborations.
Benami said the reshuffling was a “bummer” because her sister, whom she has not seen in two years, had a ticket for a rescheduled show in Bridgeport, Conn.

“Fortunately, the singers were significantly better Saturday night than they were on the show – yes, even Tim Urban.”
No hype, no glitz, no Hollywood. Just 10 young, relatively inexperienced artists of disparate styles rapidly switching places and changing paces, two-to-five-song individual sets jumping from explosive modern rock to country twang to soothing soul music.
During the American Idols Live! tour, all the dead stagecraft of the TV show gets stretched to three hours, with songs mostly repeated from the season repertory and presented in largely the same order each night.
“As the audience warmed up, the crowd got progressively more excited. By the time Casey came out, the aisles started filling up and I rushed the stage for a chance to see him jam on his guitar close up.”
“Always, ALWAYS, follow your dreams. Never stop chasing them.” -Didi
