'Glee' Skips 2012 Summer Tour, Plans Charity Concert


'Glee' Skips 2012 Summer Tour, Plans Charity Concert
To replace the tour, producers for the TV show will hold a fund-raising concert that benefits education charity, Glee Give a Note.


There won't be any tour for "Glee" cast during their break this summer. A representative for the TV series confirms to The Hollywood Reporter they won't continue the summer tour tradition that started two years ago. "We currently have no plans of touring the cast this summer," the rep says.

Instead of mapping out dates for a roadshow, "Glee" producers are plotting a one-off concert for the cast to raise money for its arts education charity, Glee Give a Note. The gig is planned to take place in fall at the Hollywood Bowl, and they are eying to raise around $10 million for the cause.

Last year, "Glee" tour grossed more than $40 million from 40 sold-out concerts. It ranked at number 16, behind Justin Bieber's "My World" trek, on Billboard's Top 25 Tours of 2011.
