Where are all my Gleeks at?
The Glee tour will kick off on Friday, May 21st at the Mandalay Bay Event Center in Las Vegas and Glee 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), Chord Overstreet (Sam) and Darren Criss (Blaine) will perform in an all-new singing and dancing celebration of the Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning show!
The North American engagement of Glee Live! In Concert!, is a unique concert experience once again conceived by Murphy that will include live performances of some of the show's most memorable musical numbers from Seasons One and Two.
"The cast and I were so moved by the love and enthusiasm of our fans at last year's concerts that we knew we had to do it again," said Murphy. "There is something magical about thousands of ‘Gleeks' coming together to share a special night with our cast, and this tour is one way we can thank them for their unbelievable support from the beginning."
"Joining the cast this year has been like hopping on a fast-moving train," commented Overstreet. "I have already had so many incredible experiences, but the chance to perform live on stages across the U.S., Canada and Europe takes the cake. This is too cool."
"Joining the cast of Glee has been an amazing, rewarding and humbling experience all at once," added Criss. "On top of all of that, I'm fortunate to play such a strong and interesting character like Blaine that speaks volumes to fans. Now I have the chance to perform for thousands of them this summer, and I couldn't be more excited!"
