Darren Criss Reacts to His Concert Tour Selling Out Almost Instantly
Maybe you already have tickets to Darren Criss’ (Blaine) upcoming “Listen Up!” concert tour. Maybe you don’t. But whatever the case, it will be pretty hard to get them now. Darren’s tour is already sold out!
Tickets went on sale at 10am on Saturday, April 29, and sold out in some cities almost instantly. Within hours, every last ticket had been was gone.
On April 19, Darren stopped by TODAY to talk about his solo concert tour, which kicks off on May 29. While he’s thrilled to see all the tickets go so quickly, the Glee star doesn’t seem to have anticipated such a rapid response.
“We went on sale Saturday morning, and I was really overwhelmed by the fact that we sold out very quickly,” Darren said. He then added, “I better step my game up a little bit.”
Darren’s tour covers 16 cities in just about a month, and the Glee star says fans can expect to hear a mix of covers, Glee songs, and his own original music. But is there any song in particular that get the best reaction from fans, hosts Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford asked.
“Oh, I don’t know,” Darren replied with his usual humbleness and self-deprecation. “I’m usually too busy trying to make sure I remember the words. I think people that know me, who have seen my shows, I think there’s an 80% chance I forget...”
What’s a forgotten lyric here in there in the midst of what could perhaps be the best concert experience of one’s life? Yeah, we think it’s pretty safe to say that Darren’s concerts will be totally perfect, regardless.
