Fox announces 'Glee' concert tour

Glee5 The cast of Fox's "Glee" is hitting the road for a live concert tour.

Taking a cue from "American Idol," 20th Century Fox TV announced that the scripted Fox musical comedy will embark on a four-city stage tour, with dates in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and ... Phoenix.*

In addition to a title with double exclamation points, "Glee Live! In Concert!" will include performances of “Don’t Stop Believin,”  “Somebody To Love," “Jump," “Don’t Rain on My Parade” and “Sweet Caroline.”

The show is conceived by series co-creator Ryan Murphy, and cast members will include 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).

“The response of the fans to our little show has been so immediate and so gratifying, we wanted to get out and thank them live and in person,” Murphy said. “And what show lends itself more to a concert than ‘Glee?’ We can’t wait to take this show on the road and the actors couldn’t be more excited to perform live for audiences in these four cities.”

Dates below; tix available via Ticketmaster. 

May 18 Phoenix, AZ                Dodge Theatre
May 20 Los Angeles, CA        Gibson Amphitheatre
May 21 Los Angeles, CA        Gibson Amphitheatre
May 25 Chicago, IL                 Rosemont Theatre

*Phoenix? Really? Not to start out Monday with a dose of blog hate, but even a TV-series concert is a bit more culture than that strip-mall wasteland, road rage capital can handle. There's a reason the Devil's cell phone on "Reaper" had a 602 area code.
