American Idol remains the #1 rated show in America, watched more than any other programming, and it’s because of the amazing talent. This year, iconic judges Randy Jackson, Steven Tyler, and Jennifer Lopez went through a tight race to narrow the contestants down for America to decide who will be the next big star. Their wisdom, candor and sense of humor continue to propel the show along at a lightning pace.

Watching American Idol at home is always enjoyable, but seeing these artists live is an experience. Past tours have featured current Pop luminaries such as Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, David Cook, Adam Lambert, Lee DeWyze and so many more. Every summer, the tour keeps American Idol alive in arenas everywhere allowing the audiences the chance to get up-close-and-personal with their favorite contestants. This top eleven will have crowds on their feet singing along to every word. Get ready…

The American Idol season finale will air on FOX May 26th, but the action will continue live on stage all summer with American Idols Live! Don’t miss it when it hits a town near you.

Denis Leary And Friends Present #ThinningTheHerd Tour At Mohegan Sun

Tuesday, April 26th, 2011

Live at Mohegan Sun Arena on July 8th

Denis Leary and Friends Present #ThinningTheHerd will make its limited run with stops in NY, CT and NJ.  The tour will be headlined by Denis Leary with Lenny Clarke, Adam Ferrara, Robert Kelly, Kenny Rogerson and Tony V joining in select cities.  The show will also feature musical guests The Enablers with the Rehab Horns.  Their second stop on the tour will bring a hysterical night of stand-up comedy and live music to Mohegan Sun Arena on Friday, July 8th at 8:00pm. 

Tickets are $36.00 and go on sale Friday, April 29th at 10:00am through Ticketmaster.  Ticketmaster customers may log on to ticketmaster.com; call Ticketmaster’s national toll free Charge By Phone number 1.800.745.3000; or visit any Ticketmaster outlet.  Tickets are also available now at the Mohegan Sun Box Office starting Saturday, April 30th, subject to availability.

“There are fewer dates this year due to the fact that Lenny is angry at me for making this the final season of Rescue Me – plus  I didn’t get him a part in either Spider-Man 4 or Ice Age 4.  He’s also afraid he’ll eat himself back to his full fatness if we’re out on the road all summer (Kenny and Adam had good money on him hitting 300 pounds by late August).   But it will be a pleasure to raise money for America’s firefighters as well as watch the look on Lenny’s face when he finds out Kenny’s playing Spider-Man’s lawyer and Adam’s voicing Paul The Penguin – Diego’s new best friend.”–Denis Leary

A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Leary Firefighters Foundation.  The Leary Firefighters Foundation was established in 2000 in response to a tragic fire in Worcester, Massachusetts that claimed the lives of Denis’ cousin, a childhood friend and four other firefighters. The Leary Firefighters Foundation’s mission is to provide funding and resources for Fire Departments to obtain the best available equipment, technology and training.
