David Cook On his First Solo Tour

Season 7 of the "American Idol" champion David Cook heads out on his first-ever solo tour, "The Declaration Tour -- 2009," in support of his eponymous album, released last November. The tour launches on Feb. 13 in Tallahassee, FL and continues through April 25 at various college campus and major venues around the country.

"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," said Cook. "It's our first full tour, and 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. And 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... "

Cook's first single, "The Time of My Life," recently went platinum, with over one million tracks sold. "The Time of My Life" is not only the biggest single debut but the highest selling debut single in "Idol"'s history. Good luck Bro, hope you have great time.
