Teen idol David Archuleta will celebrate the holidays on the road this year. Archuleta’s eager young fans can watch him deck the concert halls over the course of the four-week, 18-city Christmas from the Heart Tour.

The American Idol runner-up launches his first ever holiday jaunt on November 24-25 run at Abravanel Hall in Salt Lake City, UT, and continues on his merry way through a December 20 show at Capitol One Bank Theatre in Westbury, NY.

Additional performances are lined up for November 28 at Rabobank Theater in Bakersfield, CA; December 2 at the Grove in Anaheim, CA; December 9 at Fitzgerald Theater in St. Paul, MN; December 15 at Lyric Opera House in Baltimore, MD; and December 19 at the House of Blues in Boston, MA.

Ticket onsale dates have not yet been announced. When the first sales are unveiled, they will be accompanied by a variety of VIP ticket packages and premium seat offers, according to a statement about the tour.

Archuleta’s upcoming run follows the October 13 release of his first holiday album and second studio album, “Christmas from the Heart.” The disc is a compilation of various Christmas standards, as well as the original composition “Melodies of Christmas.”

Before launching his Christmastime trek, Archuleta has a few more live shows with Disney Channel darling Demi Lovato. The pair is set to perform on October 29 at Verizon Wireless Arena in Manchester, NH; October 30 at Dunkin’ Donuts Center in Providence, RI; and November 1 at Trump Taj Mahal Casino in Atlantic City, NJ.

Though Archuleta came in second place during the 2007-2008 season of reality singing competition “American Idol,” he has enjoyed a very successful solo career. His debut album debuted in the No. 2 slot on the Billboard 200, and he has performed to sold-out audiences on his past tours.
