People were wondering what Darren Criss would be doing once he had finished with American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace and based on his recent announcements it appears the star is concentrating on his music.
Criss recently played two nights in Mexico City and last week his intimate London concert on April 20 sold out in minutes. Now he has announced that he is taking to the road in the US and Canada, this time with his Glee co-star Lea Michele.
The duo appeared on Ellen this morning to announce the nine-date tour which will star in Nashville on May 30. Rumours of Criss and Michele doing something together ran rife when Michele shared behind the scenes photos of a recent photo shoot with Criss, which was clearly for the promotion of the new tour.
Michele and Criss took to their social media tweeting the news as well, and fans worldwide were sharing their excitement.
.@LeaMichele and I are going on tour together!!
It'll be a little bit of everything- Lea's solo music, MY solo music, & lots of songs we've always wanted to do from Glee, Broadway, and beyond.
