NYT Pop and Rock Listings for Aug. 19-25
Quote:American Idols Live! (Tuesday and Wednesday) Brand-reinforcement campaign. Contractual obligation. Consolation prize. American Idols Live! is different things to different people, but at heart it’s an old-fashioned revue, with a format that faithfully echoes the television show. The tour’s current stars are Scotty McCreery, this year’s winner, and Lauren Alaina, the runner-up — both country singers, bushy-tailed and too young to vote — but it will also give you the spunky Haley Reinhart, the excitable Casey Abrams and the adenoidal James Durbin, along with Jacob Lusk (thrilling) and Pia Toscano (lulling). Oh, and four others. At 7 p.m., Nassau Coliseum, 1255 Hempstead Turnpike, Uniondale, N.Y., (800) 745-3000, nassaucoliseum.com; $60. (Nate Chinen)


Good album name?
