GLEE LIVE! Adds Concert Dates; Ashley Fink & The Warblers Join Tour
On the heels of amazing sellouts in major markets, Glee Live! In Concert! has added more dates to its blockbuster summer tour with a limited number of new tickets released. Twentieth Century Fox Television and "Glee" co-creator Ryan Murphy are also pleased to announce that in addition to the thirteen cast members already scheduled to perform, Ashley Fink (Lauren Zizes) and members of the "Dalton Academy Warblers" will also join the tour coming to North American concert stages this spring.
Beginning Friday, May 21 at the Mandalay Bay Event Center in Las Vegas, "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), Darren Criss (Blaine), Ashley Fink (Lauren) and members of "The Warblers" will perform in an all-new singing and dancing celebration of the Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning show.
"Glee Live! In Concert!," will be a unique 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 previously 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."

GLEE returns with an all new episode tonight (8:00-9:01 PM ET/PT) entitled "A Night of Neglect," featuring guest stars Gwyneth Paltrow, Cheyenne Jackson and Charice. Proving that birds of a feather flock together, when another under-the-radar club at McKinley High needs helps raising funds, the glee club signs up to help. But when Sue hears about the show of support, she moves quickly to put the kibosh on it. Meanwhile, relationships are tested and big decisions will be made in the first of six all-new episodes of GLEE counting down to the season finale May 24 on FOX.
Now in its sophomore season, GLEE is a biting musical comedy about a group of eager and ambitious students who strive to outshine their singing competition to win Nationals while navigating the cruel halls of McKinley High that has quickly become a pop-culture phenomenon. This season's No. 1 scripted hour among Adults 18-49, Adults 18-34 and Teens boasts critical acclaim, a loyal fan base of "GLEEks," two Grammy Award nominations, more than 22 million song downloads, the No. 1 soundtrack of 2010 ("The Christmas Album"), the record for the most titles on the Billboard Hot 100 by a non-solo act (beating out Elvis Presley, James Brown and The Beatles), and an incredible 19 Emmy and 11 Golden Globe nominations, as well as four Emmy Awards and three Golden Globes, including the award for Best Television Series - Comedy or Musical. To top it off, the genre-defying, award-winning series has been picked up through its third season.
