The American Idol winner’s whoseself-titled debut album released in November hit the number 3 spot of the Billboard charts, said that he wants to get back to his roots and promote the tradition of college tours. “There’s something inherently nostalgic about playing college shows. So many amazing acts used to do it, so it’s nice to be able to bring that ideal back, in some small way,” David Cook said.

Theinspiration for the college tour came to David Cookafter he saw the Irish rock band U2 perform at the Superbowl in 2002. David Cook said about the performance, “It was just very poignant, not overdone, but definitely powerful.”
