Ryan Murphy, creator of "Glee," may not return to his roots in Indy that often--but the cast of his hit show will be in town soon.

Tickets go on sale Feb. 19 at 10 a.m. for the June 2 Conseco Fieldhouse stop of the "Glee Live in Concert" tour. 

Cast members Lea Michele (Rachel), Cory Monteith (Finn), Amber Riley (Mercedes), Chris Colfer (Kurt), Kevin McHale (Artie), Jenna Ushkowitz (Tina), Mark Salling (Puck), Dianna Agron (Quinn), Naya Rivera (Santana), Heather Morris (Brittany), Harry Shum, Jr. (Mike), Chord Overstreet (Sam) and Darren Criss (Blaine) are set to perform.

The tour kicks off May 21 in Las Vegas.

Your thoughts?

  • Can't wait!
    I've already been instructed by my daughter that we WILL be attending the concert!! Truthfully, I don't know if I'm more excited or if she is??
  • Where's the Monkees?
    Ah, cross-pollinating pop culture media. Who doesn't want a taste of that lip-synching pie? (Hell, it worked for High School The Musical.)

    I'm still waiting for the Brady kids and Partridge Family tour bus to arrive.
  • Gleek
    I'm a new Gleek, I guess, but the tickets sure are pricey!!!
  • Hopeful
    My BFF called me about this yesterday and we are checking the budget...!
  • Gleetards unite
    Count me out.
  • Hopefully
    My daughter found out about this yesterday and insists we go! I just hope I can afford the tickets!
  • seriously?
    Does Ryan Murphy let this cast sleep and eat, or is it all about promoting the "Glee" brand 24/7? Geez - I'm sure that they get paid, but seems like this bunch of youngsters have spent the last 36 months making sure "Glee" makes every nickel possible.
    • Glee!
      So excited to see Glee. I am taking my 5 year old! I am not sure who is more excited!
    • Not really Youngsters
      While I agree...they probably aren't getting much sleep...they are really youngsters either. The guy that plays Finn is 30something...the rest of the cast are in their 20s. I'd be surprised if any of them are teens. I dont know about you..but as an early 30something with kids..i've been working and tirelessly looking after myself and family for the past decade. Who feels sorry for me?
      • Glee
        so, when's your contest, Lou? : )
      • TOTAL GLEEK!!!!!!!!
        Not true Cory Monteith is 28. Can't wait for the concert!!!!!!!!
      • They really can sing though...
        Should be a good show since they actually can sing/dance. Cory Monteith is actually 28 for the record, but will turn 29 in May. Mark Salling is also 28. The cast ranges from 20 y.o. (Chris Colfer) to 28 (Monteith, Salling, Shum). A couple of them were Broadway stars before this, another in a boy-band, and another two were dancers on tours for artists such as Beyonce and J-Lopez. With the success of their songs on iTunes and other platforms, they are certainly creating a new way for TV to be financially sustainable.

      1. I am not by any means judging whether this is a good or bad project. It's pretty simple, the developers are not showing a hardship or need for this economic incentive. It is a vacant field, the easiest for development, and the developer already has the money to invest $26 million for construction. If they can afford that, they can afford to pay property taxes just like the rest of the residents do. As well, an average of $15/hour is an absolute joke in terms of economic development. Get in high paying jobs and maybe there's a different story. But that's the problem with this ask, it is speculative and users are just not known.

      2. Shouldn't this be a museum

      3. I don't have a problem with higher taxes, since it is obvious that our city is not adequately funded. And Ballard doesn't want to admit it, but he has increased taxes indirectly by 1) selling assets and spending the money, 2) letting now private entities increase user fees which were previously capped, 3) by spending reserves, and 4) by heavy dependence on TIFs. At the end, these are all indirect tax increases since someone will eventually have to pay for them. It's mathematics. You put property tax caps ("tax cut"), but you don't cut expenditures (justifiably so), so you increase taxes indirectly.

      4. Marijuana is the safest natural drug grown. Addiction is never physical. Marijuana health benefits are far more reaching then synthesized drugs. Abbott, Lilly, and the thousands of others create poisons and label them as medication. There is no current manufactured drug on the market that does not pose immediate and long term threat to the human anatomy. Certainly the potency of marijuana has increased by hybrids and growing techniques. However, Alcohol has been proven to destroy more families, relationships, cause more deaths and injuries in addition to the damage done to the body. Many confrontations such as domestic violence and other crimes can be attributed to alcohol. The criminal activities and injustices that surround marijuana exists because it is illegal in much of the world. If legalized throughout the world you would see a dramatic decrease in such activities and a savings to many countries for legal prosecutions, incarceration etc in regards to marijuana. It indeed can create wealth for the government by collecting taxes, creating jobs, etc.... I personally do not partake. I do hope it is legalized throughout the world.

      5. Build the resevoir. If built this will provide jobs and a reason to visit Anderson. The city needs to do something to differentiate itself from other cities in the area. Kudos to people with vision that are backing this project.
