After months of talk about Glee hitting the road with a live stage show, Fox has officially announced that our favorite gleeks are going on tour. The Glee Live! In Concert! tour, that is. And when we say our favorite gleeks, we mean it.
We're talking 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)...every single member of New Directions!
"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," says show mastermind Ryan Murphy. "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."
Yes, you read correctly--Ryan did say just four cities. Where will the Glee tour stop, and when can you see them? Here's where they're headed...
* May 18, Phoenix: Dodge Theatre
* May 20, Los Angeles: Gibson Amphitheatre
* May 21, Los Angeles: Gibson Amphitheatre
* May 25, Chicago: Rosemont Theatre
* May 26, Chicago: Rosemont Theatre
* May 28, New York: Radio City Music Hall
* May 29, New York: Radio City Music Hall
So, it's not the world tour you might have hoped for, but it's defintiely worth the trip to see Corey Monteith perform "Somebody to Love" live onstage, right?
