American Idol eliminee James Durbin has said that he can't wait for the summer tour because he wants to thank his fans for their support.

The 23-year-old, who exited the Fox competition last week, will join the rest of the Top 11 for a tour of North America later this year.

Speaking on Live! With Regis and Kelly about his show experience, he said: "It's not just the whole Idol journey and experience, but knowing I get to go on a nationwide tour and perform for everyone that I have inspired, and everyone who has voted for me and supported me.

"For all the wonderful fans, to get to go to them and thank them personally with a concert is probably the most special thing about this."

The 'American Idols Live!' show kicks off at the Maverick Centre in West Valley City, UT on July 6, eventually wrapping at the Blue Cross Arena in Rochester, NY on September 10.

Fans can expect performances from Casey Abrams, Haley Reinhart, Jacob Lusk, Durbin, Lauren Alaina, Naima Adedapo, Paul McDonald, Pia Toscano, Scotty McCreery, Stefano Langone, and Thia Megia.

This week's American Idol performance show will see the Top 3 finalists - Alaina, McCreery and Reinhart - performing three tracks each: one chosen by the judges, one by in-house mentor Jimmy Iovine, and one selected by themselves.

American Idol airs Wednesday and Thursday at 8/7c on Fox.
