Garrison Keillor's "A Prairie Home Companion" is leaving its Fitzgerald Theater home in St. Paul this summer for a cross-country tour, the Star Tribune reports.

Dubbed the "APHC Radio Romance Tour," the show will play 26 cities in 30 days, starting July 8 in Spokane, Wash.

Other tour stops include Salt Lake City, Denver (at the famed Red Rocks Amphitheater), Cincinnati and Louisville. The closest they will return to home will be three shows in different venues in Michigan, where tour wraps up Aug. 6.

That won't be the end of the traveling for the show this summer, however.

The 7th annual APHC At Sea cruise sets sail in Barcelona Aug. 21, and sails on to Marseille, Monte Carlo and several stops in Italy before it winds up in Venice Aug. 31.
