The cast of “Glee” is packing up and going on the road. Fox announced Monday that “Glee” co-creator Ryan Murphy is bringing the Golden Globe-winning show to concert stages in May. The bad news is the seven-show tour only hits four cities.
The tour kicks off May 18 at Dodge Theatre in Phoenix, and fans can expect all the kids of New Directions to be present.
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) and Dijon Talton (Matt) are all scheduled to appear. Sorry, fans of Mr. Schuster (Matthew Morrison) and the ultimate nemesis Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch) are out of luck as they aren’t included in the roster.
Some of the songs expected to be on the set list for the concert, conceived by Murphy, is “Don’t Stop Believin’ ” “Somebody to Love,” “Jump,” “Don’t Rain on My Parade” and “Sweet Caroline,” according to Fox.
