BY POPULAR DEMAND!!!
LIVE! IN CONCERT!
ADDS TWO MORE DATES AT LONDON’S O2 ARENA
ADDITIONAL “GLEE” CONCERTS SET FOR JUNE 28 & 29
Due to overwhelming popular demand, Twentieth Century Fox Television and “Glee” co-creator Ryan Murphy have announced two more concert dates for “Glee Live! In Concert!,” bringing the total number of shows in the European engagement to nine.
“The response from the fans overseas has been incredible, with tickets to the shows selling out in minutes,” commented Murphy. “We’re thrilled to be able to announce additional concerts at the O2 arena in London on June 28th and 29th and we promise to put on quite a show.”
After mounting a live stage concert event that played to sold out crowds and great acclaim in four American cities last year, Twentieth Century Fox Television and “Glee” co-creator Ryan Murphy recently announced that the “Glee” cast will return to concert stages this summer this time in Europe. While no North American engagement has yet been announced, Murphy promises “some exciting news very soon.”
Beginning Wednesday, June 22nd at Manchester’s MEN area, “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 European exclusive 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”.
