April 9, 2018
Darren Criss is a busy man! The Emmy nominee and his fiancée, Mia Swier, officially opened their Los Angeles piano bar this weekend. And this morning, Criss announced a music tour with former Glee co-star Lea Michele.
Criss and Swier’s piano bar, Tramp Stamp Granny’s, celebrated its grand opening with a tight-knit group of family and friends. In a casual inauguration speech, Criss described the piano bar as “a place where people can drink and sing along.” Criss kicked off the bar’s opening with a lively performance of The Beatles’ tune “Hey Jude.”
Criss and Michele made an appearance on The Ellen Degeneres Show to break the news of their upcoming multi-city tour, sharing just what audiences can expect from the concert. “It’s obviously some Glee stuff,” said Criss, “some Broadway stuff, some of her stuff, some of my original stuff, so sort of a mixture of everything.” Criss and Michele saw the tour as the perfect opportunity to collaborate more after having sung together at Criss’ celebrated outdoor music concert Elsie Fest.
.@LeaMichele and I are going on tour together!!
It’ll be a little bit of everything- Lea’s solo music, MY solo music, & lots of songs we’ve always wanted to do from Glee, Broadway, and beyond.

I love Billboard's support. Did anyone else know that Darren's Homework EP peaked at No. 7 on the Billboard Independent Albums Chart in January 2018? I knew it peaked at No. 1 on Billboard's Heatseekers Albums Chart. (See https://www.billboard.com/music/darren-criss/chart-history/heatseekers-albums/song/1060509 )

Former Glee co-stars Lea Michele and Darren Criss are reuniting to go on tour together. The pair stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show to announce their upcoming LMDC tour. In true Broadway fashion, Michele and Criss sang to announce their latest venture.
Criss – whose solo EP Homework peaked at No. 7 on the Billboard Independent Albums Chart in January – also shared on Twitter that they would be performing a variety of tunes. “It’ll be a little bit of everything- Lea’s solo music, MY solo music, & lots of songs we’ve always wanted to do from Glee, Broadway, and beyond,“ he said.

Broadway and Glee alums Lea Michele and Darren Criss will launch a U.S. concert tour—the LM/DC Tour—May 30 in Nashville, Tennessee.
The two met in 2010 on the set of Glee; Michele went on to star in Murphy’s Scream Queens and Criss just recently wrapped the latest iteration of Murphy’s American Crime Story anthology series: The Assassination of Gianni Versace.
Michele got her start as a replacement for Young Cosette in the original Les Misérables. She went on to originate the role of Little Girl in Ragtime, played Sphrintze in the 2004 revival of Fiddler on the Roof, and originated the role of Wendla in Broadway’s Spring Awakening.
Criss broke out on Glee and later moved to Broadway, replacing Daniel Radcliffe in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. He later starred as the title role in Hedwig and the Angry Inch.
The actor also founded Elsie Fest, the music festival that blends pop music and Broadway. He and Michele sang together this past summer at the third annual festival in Central Park.
