‘Glee’ cast hits the road

Actors set for series of four concerts

The “Glee” kids are hitting the road.

Thesps from the hit Fox tuner will perform at a series of four concerts, starting May 18 at the Dodge Theater in Phoenix. The lineup of singers and hoofers for “Glee Live! In Concert” will include Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Amber Riley, Chris Colfer, Kevin McHale, Jenna Ushkowitz and Dianna Agron. The repertoire will encompass tunes featured on the show such as “Don’t Stop Believin’,” “Somebody to Love,” “Jump” and “Sweet Caroline.”

The concerts mark another revenue stream for the series, which has already generated significant coin for the network and 20th Century Fox TV through more than 4 million paid downloads of songs from the high school-set dramedy. Studio clearly has confidence in the potential for the “Glee” shows as they have booked such sizable venues as L.A.’s Gibson Amphitheater and Gotham’s Radio City Music Hall.

“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,” said “Glee” co-creator/exec producer Ryan Murphy, who will mount the shows along with 20th Century Fox TV. “And what show lends itself more to a concert than ‘Glee?’?”

After Phoenix, the “Glee” express will stop in L.A. (May 20-21), in Chicago at the Rosemont Theater (May 25-26) and Gotham (May 28-29).

Ducats go on sale Friday as an exclusive offering for American Express cardholders. Sales to the general public begin March 12.
