In 2020, the 23-year-old American Idol winner released an EP entitled “Christmas From Home” and went on a tour of her home state of Iowa. It was almost sold out according to MetroTix and this year the tour expanded nationwide.
“I am very happy to be on the road again this year. Last year’s Christmas tour in Iowa was so much fun that we decided to expand it to the rest of the country this year. It will be so nice to see familiar and new faces this Christmas season, ”said Poppe in a statement.
Since winning “American Idol” in 2018, Poppe has released a studio album called “Whirlwind” and her Christmas EP toured with singer / songwriter Ingrid Michaelson. She was also the singer of the national anthem at the 2021 Field of Dreams game between the Chicago White Sox and the New York Yankees on August 12.
When the pandemic was in full swing, Poppe performed mostly virtually, streaming live concerts online for her fans. But in June 2021 she performed with American Idol Season 16 runner-up Caleb Lee Hutchinson and guitarist Scott Goldbaum at the famous Surf Ballroom in Clear Lake, IA. In her Instagram post about appearances, she wrote: “So cool to have played surf with @calebleemusic and @scottgoldbaum last night. It’s been over 16 months since we did a show together! I also found my father’s name on the wall from 2003 when he played here with his band and was allowed to sign mine on it. Thanks to everyone who came out! “
The Surf Ballroom is known in the music world as it was where Ritchie Valens, Buddy Holly and The Big Bopper were last performed before they were tragically killed in a plane crash on February 3, 1959 (“the day the music died”) . .
“American Idol” will return to ABC in spring 2022.
