Following the massive success of their five-city, sold out 2010 concert tour, the cast of Fox’s smash hit show “Glee” is hitting the road again, this time coming to 16 cities in North America.

Ryan Seacrest exclusively revealed the news Tuesday on his radio show during an interview with stars Amber Riley and Harry Shum Jr., who were hearing the news for the first time (audio coming soon).

“Glee Live! In Concert!” will kick off on May 21 in Las Vegas, and will be visiting more arenas like the Staples Center and the Nassau Coliseum rather than theaters. Newer cast members Darren Criss and Chord Overstreet will join the tour.

“The cast and I were so moved by the love and enthusiasm of our fans at last year’s concerts  that we knew we had to do it again,” said the show’s co-creator Ryan Murphy. “There is something magical about thousands of ‘Gleeks’ coming together to share a special night with our cast, and this tour is one way we can thank them for their unbelievable support from the beginning.”

Like last year, the show will feature the most memorable musical numbers from seasons one and two including “Empire State of Mind,” “Toxic,”  “My Life Would Suck Without You,” “It’s My Life,” and of course, the show’s anthem,  “Don’t Stop Believin’.”

Tickets will go on sale Saturday, February 19 to the general public, but American Express cardmembers get the first chance at tickets this Friday, February 11. For more information, please visit www.gleetour.com.
