Registration begins June 30 at Rose Garden Arena
The fame, the glory, a chance to be near Ryan Seacrest: open auditions for the 11th season of Fox TV's hit show 'American Idol' are coming to Portland Saturday, July 2.
It is the first time the show has visited Portland.
Pre-registration for the auditions is Thursday, June 30, and Friday, July 1, at the Rose Garden Arena.
Once potential performers receive coveted wristbands at registration, they will be asked to line up at the arena on the morning of July 2 to await tryout times.
