David Cook announces co-headlining tour with Gavin DeGraw, including Oct. 13 Tulsa show
“American Idol” winner David Cook is planning to return to Tulsa next month during his fall co-headlining tour with Gavin DeGraw.
The platinum-selling musicians announced today that they will embark on a national tour kicking off Oct. 9 at Penn State University. The U.S. tour, with opening act Carolina Liar, will wrap on Nov. 10 in Athens, Ga. The trek will make an Oct. 13 stop at historic Cain’s Ballroom in Tulsa.
Tickets in select markets, including Tulsa, will go on sale beginning Sept. 16. Tickets to the Cain’s show will be $34 in advance or $40 the day of the show. For tickets and information, go to www.cainsballroom.com.
Cook, who lived in Tulsa and was a mainstay of its local music scene before successfully auditioning for “Idol,” is touring in support of his sophomore album, “This Loud Morning” (19 Recordings / RCA Records), which came out June 28. The first single “The Last Goodbye” was met by rave reviews, and the album’s second single, “Fade Into Me,” will be released to coincide with the tour.

After winning the “Idol” crown in season 7, Cook went on to sell more than 1 million copies of his self-titled debut album and set out on a yearlong nationwide tour in support of his multiple hit singles. Released in November 2008, “David Cook” (19 Recordings / RCA Records) entered the Billboard charts at No. 3 and the digital album charts at #No. 1, marking the best debut from an “American Idol” winner since 2006. Collectively the songs from “David Cook” have sold more than 2 million tracks and ringtones combined. Cook’s coronation single, “The Time of My Life” was certified platinum and is not only the biggest single debut but the highest selling coronation single in the show’s history.
