The LM/DC tour makes only one New York City stop in Newark, NJ at NJPAC on Saturday, June 9, 2018 at 8pm.

“We’ve always had so much fun performing together for one-off gigs, so it’s high time we took that show on the road,” Michele and Criss said in a joint statement. "We share so much musical history together between Glee, Broadway, and our own solo projects, so it will be fun to put it all together for our fans in one big show."

Michele last hit the road in the spring of 2017 for a string of sold-out shows on her Intimate Evening With North American tour. Performing songs from her albums Louder and Places, critics stated, “Lea created a really beautiful night and performance. One of the key factors in the concert being so warm and welcoming was the fact that you knew everyone in the room was feeling the same.”

Darren Criss

Criss most recently released a five-track indie EP entitled Homework, his first solo project in over seven years. It debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Chart while SiriusXM described it as a “nice hybrid of early Elton John and Ben Folds.” In 2017, he debuted his indie-pop band Computer Games along with his brother Chuck Criss with their first album Lost Boys Life EP. Billboard deemed the bands single “Every Single Night” as a contender for song of the summer.

Lea Michele In Seventeen

Lea Michele appears on the cover of Seventeen's April 2014 issue (on stands March 11th). In her interview with Seventeen, she discusses life after the death of boyfriend and Glee costar, Cory Monteith, and how she plans to follow her passion and find lasting happiness after heartbreak. She proves that even when your life is turned upside down, you have the strength within to find your happiness and live your best life. 


Lea Michele on rumors of a Glee spin-off: “Let’s do it. I think it could be Rachel living in New York and working on Broadway!”

Lea’s tips on how she plans to follow her passion and find lasting happiness:

Figure out who you are: “I set out to make a really pop-heavy album that was fun and empowering – I love Katy Perry and Kelly Clarkson! But then I found myself picking and writing these songs that were very emotional and dramatic. Louder has songs that express extreme love and some pain. I look at it and think, That was my year. I didn’t record any songs that I didn’t completely relate to.”

Find true love: “I only have happy memories of Cory. He was not his addiction – unfortunately, it won. But that wasn’t who he was. Cory made me feel like a queen every day. From the minute he said, ‘I’m your boyfriend,’ I loved every day, and I thank him for being the best boyfriend and making me feel so beautiful.”

Get body confident: “I’m very comfortable with my own body. I come from Broadway – everybody’s naked on Broadway. I like to think of myself as more granola. I’m not going to run around naked or anything like that unless I’m at my own home. Today, I walked into my backyard and was standing out there naked for a while. Don’t tell: My neighbors will freak out!”

On the Glee cast after the passing of Cory Monteith

“You know, a lot of people, really sort of you know were, concerned about us going back to work and wondering what that would be like. But at the end of the day, you know, we are a family and we did go through this together so to be there everyday and to have the support from each other is so important. And like I said, I’m just really grateful for them and what we do everyday we do in memory and we’re really proud of the work that we do for our fans and for our show. You know, what we created I don’t think anyone will every be able to do again with a show, that you know, came from such an interesting concept, you know Ryan Murphy is such a genius. I’m just really proud of it.”

On staying positive and looking forward

“I feel really thankful for the great people that I have in my life. To be able to continue to work and have things that I’m really proud of, I think that everything that I have been through, I have an opportunity right now to be a good role model and be a good sort of person. I have amazing fans that have really supported me in everything that I have done, so if I have the opportunity right now to be inspiring or encouraging for anyone – make something positive out of it.”

On Glee’s success

“It’s been really great. I think that Glee has really opened the doors to really bringing, you know, music into people’s homes and now whether it’s in other films or other shows, I’m really thankful for what we did. It’s, like I said, opened people up to music again and that I’m really, really proud of.” 

On the release date of her album

“March 4th. It’s my favorite day of the year. I love March 4th. For me, it means so much. You march forth in life. You have to. It just seems so positive to me… I didn’t pick the day, I had a day in my mind but I got an email and they were like ‘Oh, it’s going to come out March 4th’ and I was like ‘That is so meant to be’. It so, it just feels so right to me, so that’s sort of been the theme of everything right now: to march forth with such strength, so that’s what I’m trying to do.” 

On changing the album after Cory Monteith’s death

“When Cory passed away in July we sort of stopped and looked at the record and thought, ‘Well is there anything now that we want to change or add?’ It was so perfect the way it was. What I love so much about the album, with the exception of two songs he [Cory Monteith] heard every single song. He was like my biggest fan and critic and he loved every song! He would give me all of his notes and I took every one into consideration.”

Lea Michele In Elle

On stands 11/19, ELLE’s December issue features a sexy Lea Michele who gives an incredibly candid interview about how she’s coping with Cory Monteith’s death, her role on Glee and how she started out in the entertainment industry.

On how she’s handling Cory Monteith’s death:

“I never thought I would be in this position in my whole life. Now that I am in this position, you can choose to rise, and that’s what I’m going to try to do. I know that Cory would want nothing more than for me to take this situation and use it to help people.”

On relying on friend Kate Hudson during the difficult time after Monteith’s passing:

“I called [Kate Hudson] and said, ‘I don’t know where I’m going to go because my house is swarmed [with reporters].’ She was like, ‘Oh, you’re going to stay at my house.’ Like it was nothing. No one knew I was there. I’ll never really be able to thank her, truly, for what she did for me.”

On taking time to heal:

“It’s very hard. And you have to be very strong to come out of this alive, but I think by doing the best for myself, by showing that you don’t have to lose yourself, maybe someone else will feel some sort of strength or comfort.”

On why she never expected her career in television to take off:

“I was told my whole life I would never do television because I was too ethnic. I was 100 percent focused and ready to be the best in the world [of Broadway] I was in.”
