D.C. area Gleeks were snubbed the first time Glee decided to do a live tour aka last year. A Gleek’s only hope was once a long-shot chance of scoring an Easter Egg Roll ticket for a trip to the White House. Until this morning, that was the same case for D.C. Gleeks in 2011, unless they scored tickets to the shows in Philadelphia or New York City.

Good news, Gleeks. Glee live in concert is coming to the Verizon Center Thursday, June 9!

The second season main cast including 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) and Darren Criss (Blaine) are scheduled to perform.

[Writer’s Note: I, myself, am hoping Tony award winner nominee Jonathan Groff (Jesse) makes a special guest appearance.]

Tickets go on sale March 4 at 10 a.m. Prices are $92.50 and $52.50 (plus applicable service charges) and will be available through all Ticketmaster outlets including the Verizon Center box office, online,  or via Phonecharge at 202-397-SEAT, 703-573-SEAT or 410-547-SEAT.

  1. While I, too, am hoping Jonathan Groff makes an appearance, he didn’t win a Tony. He was nominated for his role of Melchior in Spring Awakening, but he didn’t win.

  2. Glee has been a serious hit series for my city. We just started a Glee club for our local high school club and we try to imitate what the show does. Of course, we are not successful as them, but we get enough support from the parents, and I see that this Glee club will be with the school for the long run. All of this thanks to the wonderful TV show. Nice blog BTW :)
