Next month, the stars of "Glee" will hit the road for the aptly titled Glee Live! In Concert! tour just days after wrapping the season. But the castmembers seem so eager to perform live, they're not complaining about the workload before their four-city jaunt, kicking off May 18 in Phoenix.
"So, we wrap after the 26th of this month and then two days later we start our tour rehearsals," Dijon Talton (Matt) explained to MTV News before "Glee" returned for the second half of its first season on Tuesday night. "Every day, Monday through Sunday, for a couple weeks, and then we go on tour for a couple weeks, four cities, I believe. They are mostly sold out, and then a month later, back to do 22 episodes of season two. So it's kind of like no break, work, work, work. But we love it. We wouldn't have it any other way!"
Heather Morris, who plays Brittany, added that it's going to be a bit of rush to get everything solid before they take the act on the road. "We haven't started the rehearsals yet, but we will be starting them for only two weeks prior to the actual tour itself," she said. "And it's going to be really rigorous, 'cause we have to get a show together really fast. But we did the 'Oprah' show, and when we were done, it was like, 'That's exactly what it's going to be like,' and it was crazy."
Dianna Agron (Quinn) is excited but nervous. "We haven't started rehearsals yet. I'm anticipating sore muscles, lots of bubble baths," she said. But Cory Monteith (Finn) added that he's been preparing: "I'm ready for it. I've been working out: bench presses, bicep curls."
The buildup of buzz for the show's return from winter hiatus and their upcoming tour has Naya Rivera (Santana) pumped. "Such an adrenaline rush," she said. "This is just tip of the iceberg of what we're going to see when we're on tour. And I cannot wait!"
Mark Salling (Puck) emphasized that the tour is really about the fans. "We started rehearsals a little, but that's going to be another great opportunity to get to the fans and give them a good show," he teased. "I'm going to lip-sync my ass off for you."
