Fill your heart and head with Glee - Matthew Morrison announces UK arena tour for June 2011
The Glee brand continues to snowball unabated across the UK and US, with a third series already confirmed as far back as last year. The second season hasn't even finished yet and there are still several Glee-created songs from its soundtrack littered throughout the Singles and Download Charts this week.
Regular viewers will be very familiar with the character Will Schuester, played by award-winning Broadway-actor and singer, Matthew Morrison. Well, guess what pop kids? He's coming to the UK for a string of big city arena concerts during June!
The solo concerts will take in Glasgow (7th June), Manchester (9th), Birmingham (10th), Brighton (11th) and Hammersmith (13th). Tickets will go on sale this coming Friday at 9am and prices are £30 - £35 regionally and £30 - £45 in London. You can expect a mixture of show-tunes, Glee favourites and originals.
Meanwhile, don't forget about the Glee Live concerts due to take place a little later in the summer - Manchester (22nd June), London's O2 (25th and 26th June) and both Dublin dates (2nd and 3rd July) have all sold out, but the remainder are on sale for upwards of £45.
All dates except London postponed
As a result of being added to the New Kids on the Block US tour, Matthew has had to cancel all but his London date. He posted this message on his official site:
UK Fans! I'm sorry that I postponed many of my shows on the summer tour. My entire tour schedule has changed since joining the NKOTBSB TOUR. I hope to make it back to the UK to tour later this year. I am going to still do the show in London on June 13th. I hope you can make it to London for that show. Thank you for all of your support, always.
