— "American Idol" winner Taylor Hicks won't be performing this summer at Cary's Booth Amphitheatre.

Concert promoter Live Nation announced Friday the stop on Hicks' five-month promotional tour has been canceled because of scheduling conflicts.

Refunds will be available starting May 29 at the point of purchase.

Hicks rose to prominence in 2006 on the fifth season of the Fox singing competition. In December, he released his self-titled album, which debuted on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart at No. 2.
