Glee is heading to Europe for a set of concert dates. The tour was announced today by producers of the hit Fox musical-comedy. The cast will begin performing in May when production of the Glee TV series goes dark for the off-season.

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), and Harry Shum, Jr. (Mike), Chord Overstreet (Sam) and Darren Criss (Blaine).
The concert series has been named “Glee Live! In Concert!” and will features the most memorable songs from the last two seasons.
According to PopCrunch show creator Ryan Murphy said:
“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. 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.”
