As the American Idol Season 10 summer tour wraps up its North American Tour tonight, preparation for the Philippine Tour begins in earnest.
Thia Megia and the rest of the cast of the hit TV reality show American Idol will arrive in the Philippines on September 17, 2011 and will be in Manila for almost a week until September 22, 2011.
From Thia's Tweet:

It's still unknown if there will be a M&G opportunity for the Manila crowd as a group but rest assured that the casts will make some sort of TV guesting in 1 or both of the country's major television network, ABS-CBN and GMA 7 before the weeks end of thier stay in the country.
ABS-CBN and GMA 7 have joined forces in promoting the American Idol Tour, a 1st for both American Idol and Manila to bring all Season 10 Top 11 finalist in the country. In the past it has only been the Top 2 finalist who visited the country.
Thia Megia who has a major cultural bond with the Philippines (her parents are originally from Pampanga) will be extending her stay in the South East Asian country after the last American Idol tour date on September 21, 2011 as she will be attending a M&G thrown by her avid Philippine fans on September 22.
