Clay Aiken Won’t Tour This Summer

Fans of won’t be happy to hear the ‘American Idol’ season two runner-up doesn’t plan on hitting the road soon in support of his new album ‘On My Way Here’, out Tuesday. Instead, the 29-year-old will be enjoying the summer back home in North Carolina. “We’re not touring actually,” Aiken tells “I have not had two days off in a row since I don’t know when. I know since September, between the Christmas tour, and then I did a UNICEF trip to Mexico, I came straight from there to New York to do rehearsals for ‘Spamalot’. I’m in ‘Spamalot’ until May 4 and then I’ll take the fifth off and then from then on we’ll be promoting the new album for a few weeks straight. But after that, I’m going to sit down for a little bit.”

Aiken continued, “I’m going to just sit. To be honest, I haven’t had any time off in the summer in five years. There was the ‘Idol’ tour, and then I toured on my own the next two years straight. The three years after that I have been steadily on the road during the summer. I’m interested in seeing what North Carolina’s like during the summer. I’ve forgotten.”
