'Glee' star Matthew Morrison to tour this Spring

Glee star Matthew Morrison, aka Mr. Schuester, is finishing up his solo album and is preparing for a tour once the hit Fox series wraps its second season. “I’m going to be touring in the hiatus,” Morrison tells EW.  “I’m gonna go all over the world actually. I start band rehearsal in two weeks when we go on our little Christmas break.” Morrison won’t be the only Glee star performing for audiences: the younger cast will recreate their very successful concert show in the UK and Ireland. Meanwhile, Morrison says that his album, due in May according to the actor, is just about finished. “We’re almost done,” he admits. “We have like two more songs to record and then it’s off to the mixing stages. I’m really really happy with it and I can’t wait for people to hear it as well.”

    I wonder what kind of music he’ll do on it?

    • Couchtime With Jill

      I’m hoping he does something similar to Michael Buble. His cover of Sway was awesome.

    • Barry

      Probably Broadway type songs since he has appeared there in several shows. I saw him in “South Pacific”.

      • Lovely Hearts

        Love him, he is so hot and ShortPeopleDate was great

  • Kira

    Whatever happened to Puck/Mark Salling’s album?

    • Brad

      It was just a pipe dream…

    • Ryan

      It was released. And it got TERRIBLE reviews and sort of died a very quick death. I saw it in the sale rack at Target this morning.

    I listened to the previews you get on iTunes. Didn’t like Mark’s album at all. Darren Criss’s EP Human is really good, though.

    • Jenna

      Its crazy that Darren recorded Human without a label, for almost no money in his bedroom, and it still sounds awesome.

      Hi Sue

  • Allison

    Good for him!

  • Miss Talk

    I’m happy for him. I hope it will be some kind of Michael Bublé or Bruno Mars stuff.
    It’s refreshing to see really talented people getting some shine.

    All I want for Xmas is for the cast of Glee to tour in Canada!!!!!!

    • Softy1

      I agree 100 percent. Show us Canadians some Glee love! I really hope after reading this article that “touring the world” includes Matthew M’s friendly neighbours to the north :)

    • Kat

      Could not agree with you more!! I would love love love to see Glee tour anywhere close to where I am. canada loves you too Glee!! you sell well on our itunes and globaltv loves you ;)

  • da

    I want a bigger Glee tour in the US. Here’s to hoping…

  • Derek

    I love most of the music Glee does, but Matthew’s songs are always, ALWAYS my least favorite. There’s just something about his voice I don’t like. It’s like he tries too hard to be sincere. I’m not sure, but I know I hate his versions of Leaving on a Jet Plane and O Christmas Tree. Here’s hoping a solo album is much better.

    • Jon

      Maybe that’s because Glee always gives him crappy songs to sing, songs that do not quite suit his voice, he’s a Broadway star for God’s sake. You have to be able to really sing your heart out to be on Broadway.

    • Cat

      Most of his singing on Glee sounds a bit nasal to me.

      • Randi

        That’s the unnecessary autotune.

  • Kelly

    Maybe he’ll throw in some Broadway. I think he’d be awesome on “Music of the Night.”

  • graeme

    Let’s hope it’s better than Mark Salling’s album. That was the worst album I heard all year.

  • gerritv

    Guess you’ve got to strike while the iron is hot Matthew – especially if you really think people are tuning into ‘gLee’ because of you. I wonder if he’ll enjoy playing to near empty venues?

    • Dorothy

      you don’t have to be hostile here. he has a 10 year career on Broadway, and he works his ass off to get here, actually, most of the Glee cast do.
      It’s not like he is some trashy reality show star, anyone whose success based on their talent deserves respect.

      • Jan

        excellent points

  • Dora

    He’s been making this album for a year and pushing it again and again for later release, I think he just wants to make sure that it’s perfect, good for you Matthew!
    I’ll buy it.

  • James

    A concert tour? The ladies in my house will go crazy at this piece of news.

    • Jim

      As will the men in mine!

  • Paula

    go all over the world?
    come to europe, matt, most of the people I know watch Glee only because of you.
