SINGAPORE, Sept. 3 (UPI) -- Singapore has been added to the list of the American Idol Summer Tour, the only country outside the United States and Canada where the singers will perform.

The Fox television show has been massively popular in Asia and a few concert promoters in the region were bidding for the possibility to bring it to their countries, said James Knudson, concert promoter at LAMC Productions.

Speaking at a press conference, Knudson said the Oct. 5 show at the Singapore Indoor Stadium would be the last the Idols are scheduled to sing together.

Fantasia Barrino, the winner of American Idol 3, is expected to release her debut album on Nov. 15, while runner-up Diane DeGarmo's debut album is planned for release in 2005.
