The 45-date tour opens July 6 in Utah and hits the Comcast Arena in Everett July 8. Tickets go on sale May 13.

Langone, 22, was eliminated from the “American Idol” show April 21 after advancing to the top seven. He was in the bottom three for the fourth time in five weeks but failed to survive after more than 52 million votes by viewers.

The top 11 earned spots on the nationwide tour that will feature solo and duet sets.

The tour will include Langone, Casey Abrams, Haley Reinhart, Jacob Lusk, James Durbin, Lauren Alaina, Naima Adedapo, Paul McDonald, Pia Toscano, Scotty McCreery and Thia Megia.

Langone, a Kentwood High School graduate, and the rest of the singers will get only a few days off per week with shows nearly every night. The tour opens at the Maverik Center in West Valley City, Utah and finishes Sept. 10 at the Blue Cross Arena in Rochester, N.Y.

Other stops include July 9 at the Rose Garden in Portland and many major cities including Los Angeles, Oakland, Phoenix, Houston, New Orleans, Nashville, Atlantic City, Detroit and Philadelphia.
