Glee concert tour dates and cities announced

March 1, 2010

I really hope that the cast is wearing their original outfits for each song! Love these dresses.

Yes, the wait is finally over! Live on his radio show this morning, Ryan Seacrest revealed info about Glee‘s upcoming concert tour…but if you don’t live in New York City, L.A., Phoenix, or Chicago, you’re probably not going to like this news. The cast will be hitting the stage for 7 shows in May, but only those four lucky cities are scheduled! I’m not going to lie, I’m really quite disappointed that the tour is going to be so small, and I’m sure many of you agree with me on this. Let’s hope that the mini-tour goes so well that they decide to extend it! Here’s all the details on the tour from Ryan’s blog:

In an unprecedented live event, FOX and “Glee” co-creator Ryan Murphy are bringing the hit television show to concert stages this spring!

Beginning Wednesday, May 18 in Phoenix, Arizona, “Glee” stars will perform in a singing and dancing celebration of the Golden Globe Award winning show.

The four-city exclusive engagement, “Glee Live! In Concert!,” is a unique concert experience conceived by Murphy that will include live performances of some of the show’s most memorable musical numbers including its anthem “Don’t Stop Believin,” fan favorites “Somebody To Love” and “Jump” and hits “Don’t Rain on My Parade” and “Sweet Caroline.”

“This has been such an extraordinary year for ‘Glee’ and I can’t think of a better way to finish up the first season than performing live on stage with the cast,” said Leah Michele, a Broadway veteran. Heart throb Cory Monteith, “This show has changed my life in so many ways. If you had told me a year ago that I’d be performing classic rock songs in concert theaters around the country, I would never have believed you. We are psyched!”

Select tickets will be available to American Express cardholders in an exclusive pre-sale beginning March 5; tickets go on sale to the general public Friday, March 12 at 10 a.m. for the concert in Phoenix, and Saturday, March 13 at 9:00 AM for the concerts in  N.Y.C. and 10:00 AM for L.A. and Chicago.

Tickets will be available via www.ticketmaster.com and prices will range from $89.50-$39.50.

I must say that I am thrilled that the entire New Directions crew will be on the tour though! I was worried that Naya, Heather, Dijon, and Harry might get the shaft as they often do in press events. So the big question is: Will YOU be going to the show?!

    This is really exciting. But has it occurred to anyone that Lea Michele has this odd May 18 connection? She hits these big career highs on May 18! Final performance in Spring Awakening, day before the pilot premiere of Glee, now this concert tour kicks off. Damn, she always has a good May 18!
