“The Voice” is spinning off a concert tour

By Jeff Pfeiffer

NBC has had a surprise hit on its hands this spring and summer with its singing competition series The Voice, so naturally, after tonight’s Season 1 finale, producers will be looking for something to keep the show in people’s consciousness — and money in producers’ pockets.

Enter: The Voice Live On Tour. The Live Nation-promoted tour will feature the final eight contestants from the first season — Beverly McClellan, Vicci Martinez, Javier Colon, Dia Frampton, Frenchie Davis, Nakia, Casey Weston and Xenia — hitting the road for six shows across the country.
