American Idol Tour

Tomorrow I will be in Indianapolis for the Idol tour to watch the top 10 contestants perform. I just spoke with Carly from Idol and she has secured some passes for my wife and I to visit with the contestants throughout the day.  
  All of the season 7 contestants have been super supportive with me during my battle with cancer.  Most of them are great about keeping in contact with me on a regular basis.  It will be great to see them tomorrow and watch them perform again.  I'm sure they are even better now.
  If you aren't busy tomorrow and there are some tickets still available you should come check out the show.  All the performers are very talented and I don't think you would regret seeing them live.  I know from experience.

Hi Luke, Just saw the show in Chicago on Saturday. It is great, you will love it. They are great performers, but just great people in general. Enjoy!!! Say hi to Jason from his Chicago Dreadheads. We love him. He was sooo nice to us on Saturday. Blessings.

Have fun, Luke. Glad you'll be able to see your Idol buds. I'm going to try to get tickets for one of the later shows, but I'm not sure any are available.

So, can we help you with your countdown and say it's now "4 down 8 to go?" 1/3 of the way done? :-)

Continued blessings to you, Lara and your families.

Hi Luke, I'm so thrilled you're able to see them. I was wondering if you were going to go because of the fact it is in Indianapolis. I am hoping to see a show but I doubt any tickets are left for the KC show(I live in Iowa). Have a super time!

I'm reading nothing but great reviews for last night's show. Sounds like you & Lara had a blast. Pretty cool of the guys to give you a shout-out! I'm hoping to attend the Grand Rapids show in September. I can't wait!

Hey Luke, It's funny because I had a trip planned to go to Indy Tuesday night to check out the Indianapolis Indians.....so after reading your blog about it being there I found some pics and printed them off....got there after the concert was over and went to get autographs.....It was awesome but seeing that you were going to be there I printed off 2 pics I found on the web of you hoping you'd come out....but you didn't I was kinda bummed...is there anyway that I can send them to you sometime to sign them for me?....I am putting the pictures in frames and putting them up in my sports room at my house!

Luke~ I send good wishes and prayers for your recovery. I advise you to laugh often and embrace this fragile, beautiful life we have been given. But, it sounds like you already know these things.
I hope your recovery is swift and complete.
take care~dale

Luke...I was just watching the tv show 'EXTRA' a few minutes ago and learned of your profession of faith and of your dealing with cancer. I could'nt help but think and pray for you and my son. He is 36, a new father and a professor at a small christian college outside of Little Rock and is about to start round 2 of chemo for the rare Burkitts form of cancer. I guess I'm writing for two reasons. First to affirm to you that God is sovereign, in control, and will use you to draw many to Him because of how you will(and have) testified to His glory. Secondly, I sense in my heart that each of you would benefit from encouraging each other through your blog sites. When you have a moment, I invite you to http://newunderthesun.blogspot.com/
thanks for giving our family (including a young grandchild or two) the pleasure of your voice and testimony. We are fans in more ways than one. Blessings to you and your family. Aarons dad.

YAYAYAYAY Luke.... :-)

Still praying for you every day, man. Know the Lord has some major plans for you. I hope the Indianapolis show was a chance for you and the AI top 10 to be mutually encouraging to each other. Hang in there!
