    This is single best news I have heard since Arnold won the goveronship.

    • Ugly Jenny

      lol at that comment. Seeing that clip made me realize how much I’ve missed Glee! Is April here yet?

      • collegedatematch

        I luv this show!

    • Nshi

      What is “govronship”

  • DW

    Only 4 cities? I know they’re busy and all, but this sucks for those of us nowhere near these places. And who cares about Phoenix?

    • munecajg@q.com

      i do HATER! ;p lol

    • dru

      Who cares about Phoenix? The four million who live in that metro area.

      • raingods

        You’re a moron.

    • HayLaura

      I agree… why aren’t they coming to Sacramento… :(

      • junk

        yeah, come to sacramento, or at least the bay area so we can still drive to see them! LA is too far. :(

      • catlin

        SACRAMENTO! SACRAMENTO!
        I think people from the northern states would have made the trip to Norcal.

      • catlin

        I support a sacramento date…

      • Quinn’s fetus

        Because Sacramento is a second or third tier town …

      • John

        I agree! Totally in for Sacramento!

      • Kiki

        They’re only doing concerts in four states, including yours, and you’re complaining? We Glee fans have a lot to be happy about (Glee was renewed! It’s doing well!), but all you can say is you don’t want to drive for a few hours?

      • Lisa

        I’ve toured in Sacramento. They don’t wanna go to Sacramento. San Francisco or San Jose. Sacramento – no.

      • Kiki

        Wow. Practically every comment on this post is “why aren’t they coming to my city?” Let’s be reasonable. They only have a couple months off before filming season two. In that time, they have to create and rehearse a stage show. Then, they have a super-short tour just to test out the market — will it work, will folks pay $80 to see people who sing for them for free every week on their TVs, will the audiences be disappointed that’s it doesn’t look like it does on TV…that sort of thing! This isn’t a band who has a year to tour…these are actors on hiatus. Be sensible, people!!!!!

    • Elizabeth

      Brilliant comment DW… not! I wish a grape slushie on you!

      • In the immortal words of Steve Langford….

        Who gives a sh!t, who gives a f@ck!

    • E

      Who cares about Phoenix? How about…people in Phoenix! About 2 million of ‘em?

      anyway, this is great news if the tickets are affordable. Love me some Glee!

      • samsonizer

        screw all you americans.
        they need to come to Canada seeing as Finn is Canadian and all

      • ArtieFan

        YES! At least ONE date in Canada, we’re not THAT far away…

      • Peperbarker4

        can u all shut up about phoenix? i live here! its very special to me

    • SuperGirlWrites

      What about the UK,we want to see them too

      • Jack

        Yea I really want to see them all – why cant they come to the UK at some point – even for a signing?

    • Rashad

      Awww man!!! I wish they would come to Atlanta!!

      • TNmumof2

        I’d go to ATL but really – why not Nashville *ahem* music city?

      • YourAnus

        Because ATL is a sh*thole.

    • KM

      Phoenix always get ignored with other stuff. A lot of good concerts skip right over us. So, I’m so glad that they’re coming here. The rest of you guys can feel what it’s like now.

      • anonymous

        No worse than those of us stuck in even smaller states. As much as I understand why it happens, I think an artist who targeted us for once could gain some loyal fans…

      • Andrea

        WHAT ABOUT DC!?! THE NATION’S CAPITOL GETS OVERLOOKED?

      • Mike

        Andrea, if you got kids, they are coming to the Easter Egg Roll at the White House.

    • gleekfreak

      yeah, Phoenix on the map!!! I CARE!

    • Corey

      Phoenix is the 5th biggest city in America!

  • lettergirl

    i want to go but they aren’t coming near me (the south)…**sniff**

    • Jeremy

      I agree. I live two hours from Houston, and would love to see this. Too bad.

      • Carey

        I live in Houston and would LOVE LOVE to see them.

    • castiella

      I’m in Fort Worth, and I would have made the trip to any Texas (or Oklahoma, or Louisiana) city to see the Glee kids. Next year, maybe?

  • Lady Caca

    As long as Rachel and Quinn are dressed hotly, I will be there!

    • Captain Messy Pants

      I shall be present and shall have bone whenever Quinn is present.

      • YourAnus

        Oh no! I just got a mental image of Rachel and Quinn french kissing and now I have to change my underpants!

      • Sanjay

        ledag123 on February 2, 2011 @Stepanfo1 WTF??? who cares about the birds when the pltiuolon of power plants are burning the planet… come on! open your eyes. this things are saving the entire enviorement not just the birds.

  • Lemon

    Time for a road trip…

  • Gretchen

    Only four cities?! That’s bunk!!

    • D

      I know righttt!!!

    • Billy

      If I were an actor working crazy hours on a tv show and probably had others things lined up for hiatus time, the last thing I’d want to do is a nation wide concert tour. Four cities and seven dates are already a lot to ask for. Be thankful for that.

      • Kiki

        I agree with Billy!!! Even if they wanted to do a full national tour, they don’t have the time!

  • allie

    GRRRRRRRRR!!!! Please extend the tour Glee folk, please add more dates and come to Texas! I will love you forever!

    • Jennifer

      Amen to you, sister! Even if’s only one or two cities, come to Texas!

      • Caroline

        I AGREE! that makes me so angry!

    • Carey

      I thought they were coming to Dallas from the original announcement in January.

      • Ravali

        . It was very etnnrtaieing – he used his own music or the music that was playing on the loud speaker to sell his product.

    • Sienna

      I feel like a lot of tours don’t stop in Texas, which is strange because we’ve got three rather large cities (Houston, Dallas, San Antonio).

      • castiella

        Plus a major music industry capital in Austin! Come to Texas, glee!

  • Janie

    no ATLANTA? come on…………

    • Bryan

      I second that! No Atlanta is very disappointing…

  • Theresa

    Come to Rochester, NY!!!! We Love it

    • Sarah

      Agreed! We are six hours from NYC:(

    • Colleen

      totally agreed plz come to Rochester NY!!!

      • springs

        At least it’s in your state. Some of us would have to drive a day to get to a concert. Why no Denver?

  • John

    I’m glad they are “touring” but would be so much happier if it were a more extensive tour. I understand they might be exhausted if they did though.
    Washington DC or Atlanta would help since I’m in Raleigh NC

  • bobfoundglory

    how much are tickets going to be?

    • allie

      On ticketmaster the range is 37.50-72.00

      • danielle

        where did you find the link on ticketmaster, i tried searching but i couldn’t find it :(

  • Rachelle Donaldson

    They should come to Calgary Alberta Canada also considering thats where Cory Monteith is from!!!!!!! =)

    • Brit

      I totally agree with you!! Come to Canada!!

  • Angela

    Blah, no Canada.

    • Brit

      Are you for real!? That’s pretty ignorant of you… Cory Monteith is from Canada!! Ignorant American.

      • Nix

        She was complaining there were no Canadian dates, implying she’s Canadian just like you. So be careful when you call someone ignorant; sometimes it ends up being you.

      • Brit

        Your right and I am sorry. I took it as the other way… My apologies to Angela.

  • Deb

    How can then not come to a single southern city? No Atlanta, Nashville, or Charlotte? Come on!

    • TNmumof2

      Seriously – no music city?

  • Jennifer

    Oh, of course, only go to those cities. Don’t go anywhere else. Deprive everyone else in the nation who doesn’t live near there.

    I get that they can’t travel around the world because of filming, but come on.
