The top 10 contestants, including winner Phillp Phillips, continue their American Idol Live tour on Wednesday night at 7pm at the Verizon Center in Washington D.C.
The Verizon Center’s Twitter account sent out an anticipatory tweet on Wednesday, writing “Five hours until @Phillips and the rest of the @AmericanIdol tour members hit the stage tonight! Doors open in four hours!”
The tour kicked off on July 6 in Detroit, Michigan and features Colton Dixon, DeAndre Brackensick, Elise Testone, Erika Van Pelt, Heejun Han, Hollie Cavanagh, Jessica Sanchez, Joshua Ledet, Phillip Phillips and Skylar Laine.
The tour wraps up on September 11 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and tickets went on sale on May 11.
Earlier this summer, American Idol winner Phillip Phillips underwent kidney surgery at a Los Angeles hospital.
His father has said “He's been doing [well], but it's just grueling hours and it's just amazing what he's done through the journey...Eight operations since we started American Idol...He's hitting 50 percent, but he's still up there swinging away.”
Phillips recovered just in time to join the other finalists on the American Idol Live tour.
