The ‘Glee’ cast are embarking on a US tour.

Several stars of the popular TV musical drama series are to go on the road, visiting 16 cities in North America, beginning in Las Vegas on May 21.
Show creator Ryan Murphy said: “The cast and I were so moved by the love and enthusiasm of our fans at last year’s concerts that we knew we had to do it again.
“There is something magical about thousands of ‘Gleeks’ coming together to share a special night with our cast, and this tour is one way we can thank them for their unbelievable support from the beginning.”
Though Jane Lynch and Matthew Morrison won’t be among those taking part in the shows, fans will get to see performances from Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Amber Riley, Chris Colfer and Kevin McHale.
The quintet will be joined on stage by Jenna Ushkowitz, Mark Salling, Dianna Agron, Naya Rivera, Heather Morris, Harry Shum Jr., Chord Overstreet and Darren Criss, with the group planning to perform some of the most popular moments from seasons one and two of the show.
Following the run of US concerts, ‘Glee’ will then go on the road in Europe, as was previously announced.
