On Monday, the network announced “Glee Live! In Concert!” a four-city tour starring the cast. The group will bring hit covers from the show like “Don’t Stop Believin' ” and “Somebody to Love” to performances in Phoenix, Los Angeles, Chicago and New York.
In a press release, the Golden Globe-winning show’s co-creator Ryan Murphy said he was bowing to the will of the Gleeks who love the series about the adventures of McKinley High School’s glee club.
“The response of the fans to our little show has been so immediate and so gratifying, we wanted to get out and thank them live and in person,” Murphy said. “And what show lends itself more to a concert than ‘Glee’? We can’t wait to take this show on the road and the actors couldn’t be more excited to perform live for audiences in these four cities.”
The “Glee” concert will include song and dance numbers by stars Lea Michele (Rachel), Cory Monteith (Finn), Amber Riley (Mercedes), Chris Colfer (Kurt), Kevin McHale (Artie), Jenna Ushkowitz (Tina), Mark Salling (Puck), Dianna Agron (Quinn), Naya Rivera (Santana), Heather Morris (Brittany), Harry Shum, Jr. (Mike) and Dijon Talton (Matt).
“American Idol” also offers a series of live concerts – though it reaches more cities – featuring the previous season’s contestants. The "Glee" concerts will start in May with tickets going on sale the first week of March.
Thanks, I have been seeking for details about this subject for ages and yours is the best I have located so far.
Glee Live should come to Raleigh, NC! I would kill (not literally, of course) to go see them! It would be a dream come true :)
I can't wait....I might be the only adult there, but I'm going !!! LOVE that show !!!
Why not North Carolina??? Like, say, Raleigh??? What are we???
Please Please Please come to San Francisco!!! My entire school is obbsessed with your show and we would love to go to your concert!!! For our play last week we even did an adaption of Glee!!! Please come to San Francisco!!!
BOSTON!! Come to Boston – I'd so be there.
Please come to the TARGET parking lot in West Hollywood
Do they have to ruin every show by over publicizing and merchandising? Too much of a good thing will kill it. Something becomes popular and suddenly it is everywhere, that is all you hear and you become bored with it quickly. Leave it on TV and don't ruin this great show.
I have one word: glee!
Miami PLEASE... come to work and relax.
We're huge fans, but I guess its too much too ask you guys to come to Israel!?
As much as I want to wish that they'll come to Manila, I think that's impossible...and as I'm envious to those who can catch this tour; I'm in high hopes that they'll sing LIVE. :)
Come to Portland, Oregon!!!
Come to Washington DC!
Come to BOSTON... we are your biggest fans.
Denver would love to show you a Mile High welcome! Please come to Colorado.
Only four cities? Lazy.
50 bucks says it'll be all lip synched...I heard an interview with Cory Monteith where he said that Fox prohibits the Glee cast from singing in public (seriously, they aren't even allowed to hum a tune). NOT saying that they can't sing, I guess it's just that Fox doesn't want to risk them ever having an off day. Brutal!
Come and visit Toronto, Canada
COME TO SAN DIEGO!!!!!!! AAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!!!
Please don't lip-synch!
Helllllooooooooooooooooooo? And San Francisco is completely ignored? What's with that?
Please come to NYC!!!!!!!!!!
What about Miami????
Come to London, Pleeeeeeease! :-)
Definitely come to Atlanta... I'd be there.
I wish that could come to Europe!!!
In a small country called Moldova....
Love it that Brittany, Santana, Mike and Matt are also getting the acknowledgment they deserve! I wish them all great success.
Come to Virginia Beach, Virginia!! We have 1,000's of GLeeks that love GLEE!!! I love this show!
