As Crystal Bowersox and others battle it out on American Idol, a pair of show stalwarts announced exciting news for their fans last week:

Ruben Studdard and Clay Aiken will tour together this summer.

The pair, who finished first and second on season two of TV's highest-rated show, will play in 17 cities, beginning July 23 in Ashville, North Carolina and concluding on August 14 in Biloxi, Mississippi. In between, other stops include:

  • Melbourne, Florida (July 25)
  • Los Angeles, California (August 1)
  • Lancaster, Pennsylvania (August 8)
  • New York City (August 11).

Said Aiken: "I couldn't ask for a better tour mate. To be able to share the stage with him again is so exciting. He is such a talented artist. He inspires me daily and I think that respect and admiration will truly be reflected in our show."

Will you go see Clay and Ruben on tour?


Hubby and I have followed these fellas since their AI days. Both have proven to be well rounded performers. Both have appeared in very popular musical plays. We have seen both AIN'T MISBEHAV'N and SPAMALOT. Both very entertaining. Can't wait to see the
"DYNAMIC DUO" in action. Hope they come to Baltimore-Washington
on their tour. If not we will have to attend one closest to the


My girlfriend and I are going to the Florida shows. Can't wait.


Clay and Ruben together again equals Dynamite! Cannot wait to see them.


I am so very excited to see these two wonderful singers together again...I will be there in Reno.


I joined the ticket scramble for Asheville this morning and got tickets for our group. I can't wait to see this concert.


Clay is the best all-around entertainer.
You have to experience him live.
This concert with Ruben is going to be a fun show!


Clay Aiken puts on a great show, add Ruben and you have a wonderful evening of solid entertainment. Can't wait to see this!


Clay and Ruben are great together and have two of the best voices to come out of AI. The concerts will be well worth going to.


Clay's concerts are great! I've been to six of them. My claymate friend that use to travel with me to see Clay isn't to much of a fan since she found out he is gay....It's crazy but that's the way she is. I live an hour from Turning Stone I'll have to find someone to go with.


Definitely going to see at least two Clay and Ruben performances. Should be a fun summer show with two guys with great voices.

Clay Aiken Quotes

I cannot raise a child to lie or to hide things. I wasn't raised that way, and I'm not going to raise a child to do that.

Clay Aiken

I have no idea if he'll be gay or straight. It's not something I'll have anything to do with, or that he'll have anything to do with. It's already probably up inside the code there ... No matter what the situation you're in, if you're raised in a loving environment, that's the most important thing.
