David Cook Announces National Tour

David Cook just couldn’t let David Archuleta have his moment in the sun. Just hours after Archie announced his upcoming tour dates, Cook has confirmed a national tour of his own.

This is David Cook’s first-ever solo tour, and he’ll be promoting his self-titled album. He says, "I'm more than excited to hop on the road and support this record. This tour represents both a new beginning and a return to form for me."

The Declaration Tour will kick off February 13th in Tallahassee, Florida and go all across the nation in both major venues and various college campuses.

Cook says, "We're all ready to pour whatever blood, sweat, and tears that we can muster into making this show, and every show from here on out, an experience. Part of that experience is bringing back this college tour idea. There’s something inherently nostalgic about playing college shows. So many amazing acts used to do it, so it’s nice to be able to bring that ideal back, in some small way. Besides, touring on a bus beats what we used to do, which was cram five guys into a seven-passenger van for one show, 13 hours away."

Well, guess getting your own bus means you’ve finally made it! Just a thought, if both Davids are touring at the same time, why couldn’t they just do it together? We know they’re both totally different genres, but we loved seeing them perform together on American Idol!
