Fox’s musical series “Glee” will break with a tradition it has built over the past two summers, Entertainment Weekly reports. The series will not take its show on the road this summer.
“Glee,” which did live tours the past two summers, will instead take a two-and-a-half-month hiatus this year, giving cast members the chance to do other projects.
The producers do hope to stage a single benefit concert, probably at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl, next fall. The event will be a fundraiser for the show’s arts education charity, Glee Give a Note.
The report adds: “To date, ‘Glee’ has not been picked up for a fourth season, so plans for future tours are still uncertain. But while ratings for the cultural phenomenon have declined in its third season, the earnings from last year’s tour were respectable: It was the 16th most successful concert tour of 2011, grossing more than $40 million in arenas across the U.S., Canada, England and Ireland.”
