This is the most gleeful news we've heard all day.
Glee creator Ryan Murphy confirmed to The New York Post this week that the cast of his hit show will tour the country next summer. He said:
"We're going to do what American Idol has done and put the kids on the road. It all equals revenue streams for FOX."
Anyone unsure about whether the show is worth its own tour needs only to watch a clip from last night's episode. Check out Rachel and Finn making like Jordin Sparks and Chris Brown in this "No Air" duet:
"Glee's music is not only driving the show, making it the freshest program on broadcast television, but it's also driving revenues. This is a new sort of model. It used to be with TV that you would have the show, then foreign sales, then DVD sales and then syndication sales, but DVD sales have really taken a cut out of syndication. This is a whole new way for Fox to earn revenue on a show."
