‘The Voice’ Top 8 to Tour This Summer
Do you love ‘The Voice‘? The hit singing competition may be about to call it a wrap for the season, but the music doesn’t have to stop there. A summer tour is currently in the works, which will include the top 8 contestants — but not the judges.
Apparently, Live Nation organizers attempted to get Blake Shelton, Cee Lo Green, Christina Aguilera and Adam Levine in on the road show, but they just couldn’t offer them enough money to make it a reality. Still, Beverly McClellan, Vicci Martinez, Dia Frampton, Javier Colon, Nakia, Xenia, Casey Weston and Frenchie Davis will pack their bags and head out on tour.
Despite being the most expensive unscripted series in NBC history — at over $2 million per episode — ‘The Voice’ has proven to be a great success, and the producers are hoping to cash in on that around the country.
NBC has decided to hold off until post-Superbowl to start the next season of ‘The Voice.’ That way, the network can offer even more episodes of the show and draw it out a little longer next spring. From there, it will become a spring/fall series rather than the summer stint it saw on its first run.
