April 8, 2015 – Multi-award winning singer, pianist, actor and ‘American Idol’ Judge, Harry Connick Jr. has announced a 20-plus city tour in the U.S. this summer.

The veteran crooner and star of stage and screen, will kick off his tour on July 9 in San Diego, CA, and touchdown in famed venues such as the Orpheum Theatre in Memphis ad Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl, before wrapping up at Chicago’s Ravina Park on August 7.

To many modern music audiences Connick Jr. is best known as a former mentor and now current judge on the hit star-making TV show, ‘American Idol’.  However, to generations before, he was a big band crooner, the hit-maker behind the soundtrack to ‘When Harry Met Sally’ and the star of such rom-coms as Hope Floats (with Sandra Bullock) and New in Town (with Renee Zellwegger).  He starred for three seasons in the top-rating TV comedy, ‘Will and Grace’ and, as well as a slew of major acting roles on Broadway has won three Grammys and two Emmy Awards.  Add to that worldwide album sales of 28 million, and its apparent that life before ‘American Idol’ was pretty good for the jazz singer.

This forthcoming tour promises to feature many songs from Connick Jr’s major musical catalog tracks from his most recent album release, 2013’s Everyman Should Know.

Pre-sale tickets go on sale this Thursday April 9, with all other tickets on general release from Friday April 10.
