CALLING ALL GLEEKS!

"GLEE" LIVE! IN CONCERT! RETURNS THIS SUMMER WITH 16-CITY NORTH AMERICAN TOUR PRESENTED BY CHEVROLET

THE CAST OF FOX'S SMASH SHOW "GLEE" TO RETURN TO CONCERT STAGES IN THE U.S. AND CANADA THIS MAY FOR BLOCKBUSTER CROSS-COUNTRY TOUR PRIOR TO PREVIOUSLY ANNOUNCED EUROPEAN ENGAGEMENT

Special Presale to American Express Cardmembers Starts February 11; Tickets Go on Sale to General Public Saturday, February 19

On the heels of blockbuster ratings for the post-Super Bowl episode Sunday night, Twentieth Century Fox Television and "Glee" co-creator Ryan Murphy are pleased to announce that the critically acclaimed "Glee Live! In Concert!," starring 13 members of the television show's cast, will return to North American concert stages this spring.

Beginning Friday, May 21 at the Mandalay Bay Event Center in Las Vegas, "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, including "Empire State of Mind," "Toxic," "My Life Would Suck Without You," "It's My Life," and of course, the show's anthem, "Don't Stop Believin'." Described by the Los Angeles Times as "triumphant," USA Today called last year's concerts "equal parts musical theater, giddy pop culture phenomenon and Journey-loving rock show."

"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!"
