David Cook is getting the band back together.

The singer, actor and American Idol season seven champ will release a new six-song EP, The Looking Glass, on April 16 and has planned three livestream shows, which will be his first performances with a full band in over a year.  All three performances will originate from Nashville via the streaming platform Mandolin at 8:00 p.m ET.

The first show, April 18, will celebrate the release of The Looking Glass. On May 2, he’ll do a show to benefit the National Brain Tumor Society; fans may recall that David lost his brother to brain cancer in 2009. On May 16, he’ll do a show mixing newer songs with past material.

There are a variety of ticket options available, including meet-and-greets, merch bundles and Q&A’s.  Visit for full information.

Assuming the pandemic has eased up enough by the fall, David will kick off a brief tour starting September 11 in Cincinnati, OH and wrapping in Columbus, OH, with stops in New York, Pennsylvania, Connecticut and Maryland in between.  He’ll follow that up with a co-headlining European acoustic tour with American Idol season eight champ Kris Allen.
