According to the Hollywood Reporter, the cast of NBC’s hit singing competition “The Voice” will be hitting the road this summer on tour! It worked for “Glee” and “American Idol” so why not?
The tour will feature amateur vocalists Frenchie Davis, Beverly McClellan, Vicci Martinez, Dia Frampton, Nakia, Xenia, Casey Weston and Javier Colon, but their coaches – Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Christina Aguilera, and Cee-Lo Green – will not be joining them.
The tour producer, Live Nation did have negotiations in the works for the four stars to join in on the tour but that all fell through the roof because of not being able to reach an agreement on compensation.
Though no official announcement has been made about the tour, both Levine and Shelton have expressed their excitement on Twitter.
Shelton added, “I feel like a proud papa with my two girls @DiaFramps and @X3NIA17 hitting the road this summer for The Voice Live on Tour. Show ’em love!” In addition to Monday’s message about the tour, Shelton weighed in again on the show’s finale, writing early Tuesday, “just watched my wife and @DiaFramps rehearsing … this is why I love ‘The Voice’ and more importantly great artists. Life-changing moment.”
The coaches will team up to perform the Rolling Stones’ “You Can’t Always Get What You Want,” on Tuesday night’s (June 28) final performance show. It will also feature songs from Pitbull, Ne-Yo and Brad Paisley, according to THR. Frampton will sing with Miranda Lambert on Wednesday night’s finale.
The show is slated to return for a second season in the spring, with a kickoff in the sweet spot behind the Super Bowl.
