American Idol apparently needs to retool more than just its judges panel.  Ticket sales for its annual American Idols Live concert tour are in free fall, is exclusively reporting.

According to our friends at StubHub,  interest in the tour is at an all-time low.

Box office for the AI Live show peeked in 2011, the year Scotty McCreery won, and dropped a modest 10 percent in 2012, with Phillip Phillips in the lead.

But for the 2013 tour -- starring winer Candice Glover and the rest of the finalists -- ticket sales are off by an astounding 347 percent!

No one is suggesting it's Glover's fault -- rather an overall lack of interest in the entire show.

The tour kicks off July 19 in Kent, Washington and wraps up in Nashville on August 31.  And right now it looks like there are going to be a lot of empty seats.
