"Glee" stars Lea Michele and Darren Criss are headed to ASU Gammage on Saturday, Nov. 3, at 7:30 p.m. as part of their LM/DC Tour. Reserved seat tickets for the event start at $41 and go on sale to the public Friday, Sept. 14 at 10 a.m.
“When we did the first leg of the LM/DC Tour, we didn’t think we were going to survive one another through the end,” joked Michele. “All kidding aside, we loved every minute of it. Each city warmly embraced us with a good time and high energy. We have the best fans, and when we heard them wanting more, we absolutely wanted to deliver. We couldn’t be more thrilled to take the LM/DC Tour to the West Coast and overseas to the U.K.!”
Fans can gain access to pre-sale tickets on Sept. 12 at 11 a.m. Arizona time. American Express card members can purchase tickets before the general public beginning Sept. 12 at 10 a.m. local time through Sept. 13 at 10 p.m. local time.
Michele is best known for her performance as Rachel Berry on the critically acclaimed, Golden Globe-, Grammy-, and SAG award-winning Fox television series "Glee." She has been nominated for an Emmy, a SAG Award and multiple Golden Globes. The "Glee" cast recordings have sold more than 10 million singles and garnered more than 20 top 40 U.S. Billboard Hot 100 hits.
She last hit the road in the spring of 2017 for a string of sold-out shows on her "Intimate Evening With" North America tour, performing songs from her albums “Louder” and “Places.” One critic said, “Lea created a really beautiful night and performance. One of the key factors in the concert being so warm and welcoming was the fact that you knew everyone in the room was feeling the same.”
Criss most recently released a five-track indie EP entitled "Homework," his first solo project in more than seven years. It debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Chart while SiriusXM described it as a “nice hybrid of early Elton John and Ben Folds.” In 2017, he debuted his indie-pop band Computer Games along with his brother Chuck Criss with their first album "Lost Boys Life EP." Billboard deemed the band's single “Every Single Night” as a contender for song of the summer.
Criss is a multi-faceted artist with an illustrious career spanning television, film, music and stage. He was recently nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award for his portrayal of Andrew Cunanan in the second installment of Ryan Murphy’s award-winning series “American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace.” In the fall of 2016, Criss returned to Broadway in his critically acclaimed performance as Hedwig in “Hedwig and the Angry Inch,” which kicked off the 2014 Tony Award-winning Best Musical Revival’s national tour. Best known for playing Blaine Anderson on Fox’s global phenomenon “Glee,” he received an Emmy Award nomination in 2015 for best original music and lyrics for the song “This Time,” which was performed by Lea Michele and appeared in the episode titled “Dreams Come True.”
