'Glee' Kicks Off Concert Tour in U.K. This Summer
Glee is going international.
The stars of the Fox hit will kick off a five-date concert tour in England this June, the network announced Friday.
Tickets go on sale Nov. 22 to American Express cardholders, and Nov. 26 to the general public.
Stars Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Amber Riley, Dianna Agron -- and the rest of the actors on the Fox hit -- will be among those to hit the stage. Songs include "Empire State of Mind,” “Toxic, “ “My Life Would Suck Without You,” “It’s My Life,” and “Don’t Stop Believin." No word if they'll cover Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream," which just became the most downloaded song in the show's history, but Darren Criss will be on tour.
The shows kick off June 22 in Manchester, England. They'll also play in London and Dublin through July.
“We had such a great time putting together last year’s shows and the response from the fans was incredible. People around the world want to see our cast live and in person, so this European tour is our way of thanking them for the unbelievable way they’ve embraced our little show," said creator Ryan Murphy. "And for everyone in America who has asked if we’ll be back to a city near them this summer, stay tuned. We’ll have some exciting news very soon.”
"We cannot wait," said Riley. Added Monteith, "We had so much fun on tour last year that we were all itching to do it again. The fact that we’re going to Europe to perform for thousands of people is mind blowing. This show has been quite a ride."
