TV Guide Sponsors Idol Summer Tour

Check it out, dawg: Gemstar-TV Guide International will sponsor this summer’s 50-city American Idols Live! Tour 2007, featuring the 10 finalists from Fox’s American Idol.

As part of the sponsorship deal with American Idol producer 19 Entertainment, TV Guide created an 18-page tour guide to be included with the current issue of TV Guide magazine and distributed at the concerts.

In addition, TV Guide will take photos of concert-goers on an American Idol “red carpet” and post them to a Web site. Fans will also have the chance to appear on the TV Guide Network, which will air tour updates over the summer.
