Following sell-out US concerts, the smash-hit TV series Glee will come to the UK this Summer featuring the cast of Glee performing in Europe for the first time.
Beginning Wednesday 22 June 2011 at Manchester MEN Arena and then 25 and 26 June 2011 at the O2 Arena in London, GLEE LIVE will feature the stars of the TV series performing in an all-new singing and dancing celebration of the Emmy and Golden Globe Award winning show.
The talented young cast 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), Chord Overstreet (Sam) and Darren Criss (Blaine).
The exclusive European tour of Glee! In Concert! sees the show’s creator Ryan Murphy stage 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’.
The show enjoyed rave reviews on its original US tour, with the LA Times describing it as “triumphant,” and USA Today calling it “equal parts musical theater, giddy pop culture phenomenon and Journey-loving rock show.”
Glee Live is presented by Twentieth Century Fox Television and Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy.
