The AI Tour opens July 5th (that’s Sunday night if you are counting) in Portland, Ore.

They roll into the Bay Area July 10th (Sacto); July 11th (Oakland); and July 12th (San Jose).

So, what have the Idols been doing in the meantime aside from rehearsing?

– Kris Allen has been writing songs.

–  Danny Gokey has been in a series of meetings in Nashville, presumably talking record contracts.

–  Scott MacIntyre has been spending time at the beach.

– Michael Sarver has simply been hanging out with his wife.

– And Adam Lambert took in an Adele concert at the Hollywood Bowl.

Riveting stuff, huh?
