Post-American Idol[edit]

Tour[edit]

Aranda is scheduled to go on tour in July of 2019.[3] After tickets went on sale on the morning of May 23, they all sold out in just minutes.[4] American Idol judge Katy Perry begged Aranda to be a 'roadie' on his tour, a play on words with Aranda's catchphrase 'homie'.[3] Because of the overwhelming amount of support, he announced on June 11 that he would have a free concert in Nashville on July 3.[5]
