Q&A with American Idol's Matt Giraud
SR: What are you most looking forward to about the Idol tour?
MG: Going back and playing those big arenas in Michigan. It's crazy...I used to be across the street at a little smaller clubs just playing music while people had food. I'd just be in the background, and this huge arena's out the window, and it was like, "Man, I wonder what it would be like to play there." ... To step on those huge stages and step out in front of thousands of people in your home state—I can't wait to do that.
