The Idols Are Not Coming to Huntington

I interrupt your day with some breaking news…

The Idols Live Tour is NOT coming to Huntington this year.

The tour dates were announced today and our fair city did not make the cut. Those of you in the Tri-State wanting to see this year’s show will need to travel to Columbus (July 20th), Cincinnati (July 23rd), Pittsburgh (July 29th), Lexington (August 16th), or Cleveland (September 4th).

Now since I am not privy to show negotiations, I can’t really tell you why the show is not coming here this year (But I welcome anyone out there who can to let me know). But I will tell you that I’m a little surprised considering the excellent response the show has gotten in Huntington over the past two years—even last year when tour attendance was down overall.

If anyone out there has any insight, please post a comment or drop me a line at

I now return you to your regularly scheduled day…
