'Glee' will hit the big screen with 3-D concert movie
The movie will bring the upcoming “Glee Live! In Concert!” North American tour to the big screen on Aug. 12 for a limited two-week engagement.
Welcome news for Gleeks who didn’t score tickets to the sold-out shows.
“This tour was all about going out and performing for our amazing fans who have supported our show from the beginning, but due to the limited time we had to travel during our hiatus, there were only so many cities we could get to before we had to resume work on the television series,” Murphy said in a statement. “We promise every passionate ‘Gleek’ a cinematic experience that will have them singing and dancing in the aisles.”
The concert flick, which will be directed by Kevin Tancharoen (“Fame”), will feature live performances of some of the musical numbers, including “I’m a Slave 4 U,” “Raise Your Glass” and “Teenage Dream,” as well as the original songs, such as “Loser Like Me,” “Hell to the No!” and “Get It Right.”
The tour begins May 21 in Las Vegas with “Glee” stars Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Amber Riley, Chris Colfer, Kevin McHale, Jenna Ushkowitz, Mark Salling, Dianna Agron, Naya Rivera, Heather Morris, Harry Shum Jr., Chord Overstreet , Darren Criss, Ashley Fink and members of the Warblers.
