Season 5 American Idol Tour Stills Reigns As Most Profitable
There cannot be any doubt left that the headliner for the 2006 Idol Tour, winner Taylor Hicks, had a major part in the most profitable and most successful tour thus far in all seven seasons of that cheesy show. This is no coincidence, my friends - just look how the gross receipts for Grease soared during this summer when Taylor starred in the production.
According to USA Today, "the 2008 American Idol tour, headlined by David Cook, was a substantially greater success than last year's, but failed to match the star-studded, Taylor Hicks-led 2006 edition. This summer's tour pulled in $29.3 million, according to Billboard Boxscore, compared with 2007's $20.9 million and 2006’s $35.2 million. Seats were filled at an 85.4% average rate; in 2007 that figure sagged to 68.4% after the 2006 tour ran at 96.1% capacity."
