‘Glee’ Cast Not Touring This Summer

When the third season of ‘Glee‘ wraps this May, Gleeks won’t be able to extend their enjoyment of the series into the summer with the ‘Glee Live! In Concert’ tour. That’s because the tour is not happening this year.

Instead of hitting the road and entertaining fans, the cast will enjoy a nearly three month hiatus, thanks to head honcho Ryan Murphy, who is said to have fought for his fatigued cast, known for working 16-hour days, to get some well-deserved time off. It’s summer vacation for Lea Michele, Darren Criss and co.

The Hollywood Reporter exclusively shared the news that the tour, which took place over the last two summers, is on ice. ”We currently have no plans of touring the cast this summer,” a spokesperson for the show told the trade.

A fourth season of the series has not been ordered, so this could be a case of the powers-that-be taking a wait and see approach. Or it could just be Murphy trying to stave off burn out for his cast.

But despite the axing of the tour, the producers are said to be planning a live performance, with designs on a one-off benefit show that would take place in the fall at the famed Hollywood Bowl. The show would act as a fundraiser for the arts education charity ‘Glee Give a Note.’ The organization would like to raise $10 million this year and a charity gig is certainly a good way to help achieve such a goal. Said benefit show is still an idea and nothing has been confirmed.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, Gleeks. It’s all reruns and watching previous seasons on DVD if you want to enjoy ‘Glee’ this summer.
