Fox's 'American Idol' auditions kick off in Boston

So you think you can sing? You're in luck.

The ultimate competitive talent search, "American Idol," is holding open auditions on Sunday, June 14 at Gillette Stadium located at 1 Patriot Place in Foxboro. It's the first time the show has held auditions in the Boston area since 2005.

Thousands of soulful singers and publicity-desperate oddballs between 16- and 28-years-old plan to take a stab at stardom this weekend. However, one of the show's mainstays may be on hiatus.

"Idol" judge Paula Abdul admitted on Thursday during an appearance on "Late Show with David Letterman" that she's in the middle of contract discussions and may not be sitting alongside Simon Cowell when auditions kick off in Boston.

With or without Abdul, audition wristbands will be distributed beginning at 7 a.m. on Friday, June 12 until 8 a.m on Sunday, June 14. Unfortunately, there will be no overnight camping allowed inside or outside of the venue.

this has leaked on AF1 due to Brad's son "tweeting" with Joe on twitter.com, etc....

Brad is in the hospital having a procedure done...his son is there with him. The "official" announcement will likely include more specific
information. It is likely he will miss at least 1/2...maybe all of the tour. No "official" word on who will fill in for him but that should be forthcoming as
well very soon....as Aerofanatic said, it makes sense it would be his guitar tech since he pretty much knows the songs, guitars, tuning, etc.
