American Idol winner, Phillip Phillips is preparing to tour with his fellow Idol contestants, as the multi-month tour prepares to take Idol fans by storm.
Phillip Phillips, Jessica Sanchez, Colton Dixon, Joshua Ledet, Skylar Laine, Hollie Cavanagh, Elise Testone, Erika Van Pelt, Heejun Han, and DeAndrea Brackensick have all expressed their excitement about spending the next few months together everyday. It's a "dream come true" for many of the finalists to be able to spend time traveling, meeting fans and singing almost every night in front of thousands of people, they have said.
Fans who were only able to watch their favorite contestants on screen will finally have the chance to see them live in concert.
"I'm flipping' excited that I'm going on the tour," says Dixon on the Tour Talks video. "If I'm stuck with Heejun, I'm sure there will be tons and tons of videos ," he laughingly adds.
What Han, whose favorite pastime is reading the Bible, is most excited about is the "free food, free hotel, free stage, and free audience" and being able to travel to places he has never been to before.
