Get psyched, Gleeks, because the cast of 'Glee' is heading back out on the road this summer. In 2010, the New Directions crew sold out a short five-city run, and now they're back to perform in much bigger venues for a new 16-city North American tour.
'Glee Live! In Concert!' will kick off on May 21 in Las Vegas, and wrap up on June 18 in Uniondale, N.Y. The tour has definitely received an upgrade, as the cast will hit arenas this time around instead of theaters.
Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Mark Salling, Chris Colfer, Jenna Ushkowitz, Kevin Hale, Amber Riley, Dianna Agron, Naya Rivera, Heather Morris and Harry Shum, Jr., will all take the stage, and newcomers Darren Criss and Chord Overstreet will be performing with the ensemble, too.
"Joining the cast of 'Glee' has been an amazing, rewarding and humbling experience all at once," Darren said. "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!"
"Joining the cast this year has been like hopping on a fast-moving train," Chord added. "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."
Expect to hear some of your favorite songs from the first and second seasons of the the show, including 'Empire State of Mind,' 'Toxic,' 'My Life Would Suck Without You,' 'It's My Life,' and, of course, 'Don't Stop Believin'.' But with Darren and Chord on the bill, we're crossing our fingers for 'Teenage Dream' and 'Lucky,' too.
Tickets for the tour will go on sale to the general public on Saturday, February 19, but American Express cardholders can score tickets early on Friday, February 11. Check out all the tour dates below, and get more information at GleeTour.com.
