When asked about preparing for GLEE's sumemr tour, criss commented: 'Everything is so much bigger than myself, it's hard to comprehend. A year ago, I was so psyched that my first show in L.A. was at the Troubadour. I grew up dreaming of playing the Troubadour one day. Talk about so much for baby steps. It's like, 'Wait -- Staples Center, are you kidding me?' I was happy to drive around in a beat-up, crappy old van with my bandmates and just go to small clubs around the country.' (more...)
