Phillip Phillips "Doing Well," To Participate in Full American Idol Tour

by at . Comments

Very good news for American Idol fans across the country: Phillip Phillips WILL be coming to a venue near you.

The Season 11 champion has been battling kidney problems for months and was scheduled to undergo surgery late last month that may have caused him to miss the opening couple dates on the show's upcoming summer tour.

But sources now tell E! News that Phillips is "doing well" and responding to an alternative treatment. He currently has no plans to follow through with any kind of procedure.

"He will still be attending all the tour dates and is really looking forward to the launch on July 6," says a rep for the tour.

Phillips will likely be greeted with hearty rounds of applause everywhere he goes. The singer is off to an incredibly strong start to his post-show career, making American Idol history last month due to how many times folks downloaded his winning single, "Home."
