A planned tour stop at Target Center July 2 is among the cancellations on the "American Idol Live!" tour, the Pioneer Press reports.

"Production rehearsals for the American Idol Live tour have been pushed back two weeks which unfortunately affects some of the early dates on the tour itinerary," read a statement on the Target Center webpage touting the tour.

Also canceled were tour dates in St. Louis, Kansas City, Detroit, Chicago, Oklahoma City, Las Vegas, Oakland, Tulsa, Okla., Broomfield, Colo., and Ontario, Calif., Yahoo! Music reports.

The tour is now scheduled to get underway July 19 in Kent, Wash., and conclude Aug. 31 in Nashville, Tenn.

“American Idol Live" features the top 10 contestants on the Fox reality competition -- Amber Holcomb, Angie Miller, Burnell Taylor, Candice Glover, Curtis Finch, Devin Velez, Janelle Arthur, Kree Harrison, Lazaro Arbos and Paul Jolley -- and “Tour Fan Save” Aubrey Cleland.

Glover won the competition last month and Harrison was runner-up.

According to the Target Center website, tickets purchased with a credit card online or over the phone via AXS will automatically receive a refund credited back to the credit card. Refunds are available at original point of purchase for tickets bought in person.

"American Idol," which once dominated the ratings, has suffered from declining audiences in recent years.

Even though the show featured three new high-profile new judges with Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban this year, the season finale drew 14.3 million viewers, down 40 percent from the previous year, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Carey and Minaj have already left the show, as well as Randy Jackson, who has been a judge on show since Season One.

Although there's no official word on Urban's fate, the show is expected to return with a whole new slate of judges for Season 13 in January.
