NBC's 'The Voice' Is Going On Tour

'The Voice' has been NBC's sleeper hit, so it comes as no surprise that they're capitalizing on the success with a big summer tour.

After final performances tomorrow night (9PM ET on NBC), the show's first season will wrap on Wednesday (8PM ET) with the second season not set to air until next spring.

'The Voice' Top 8 Finalists

So, just like 'American Idol,' 'The Voice' will be sending their best singers out on the road to keep fans invested in the series. The summer tour will feature the show's final eight contestants: Beverly McClellan, Vicci Martinez, Dia Frampton, Javier Colon, Nakia, Xenia, Casey Weston and Frenchie Davis.

Not on the roster? The show's very high profile coaches, Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine, which is also not surprising. Given their per-episode salaries (Aguilera's six-figure check in particular) and their own busy music careers, it likely wouldn't make financial sense to pay them to go on tour as well.

But that doesn't mean the coaches aren't supportive. Tweet-happy Shelton and Levine both took to Twitter today to congratulate their team members on the good news.

@blakesheton: "I feel like a proud papa with my two girls @DiaFramps and @X3NIA17 hitting the road this summer for The Voice Live on Tour. Show 'em Love!"

@adamlevine (which has since been deleted): "LevineTeam members @Javstwtr and @casey_weston are hitting the road in July for #TheVoice Live on Tour. Go check them out. You can thank me later."

And, seeing how Shelton was so eager to take both Dia Frampton and Xenia on tour with him for a show this season, that's also not to say that a coach (or all four) couldn't pop in for a surprise song on any of the stops.

The Hollywood Reporter notes that the show isn't cheap to produce -- clocking in around $2.3 million per episode -- but garnering a quarter of a million dollars per 30-second commercial and some impressive iTunes sales mean it's been money well spent. If NBC can sell out some tour dates, it'll only ensure a longer life for the show.

Will you pay to see 'The Voice' finalists on tour?
