Why so mysterious and secretive, Darren?  confused Question 

Let the speculation begin! 

I'm guessing it's Computer Games related-because it's on his Youtube channel (as well as on his twitter and instagram).  If it was related to a TV show or a Broadway show, not sure if he would put it on his Youtube channel along with his other social media.  Hey, I'm just guessing.  I don't know

He is using a pic with a beard, not the clean-faced look that he had to do due to filming Versace.  The beard means "Darren," versus a role.  I'm guessing again it's Computer Games related.

So maybe a Computer Games tour (including China)?


P.S. I like your usage of the little emoticon, Jeremy.  :amused

I agree it's most likely music-related, but since it's only on Darren's social media, my money is on that solo EP he promised. :happy face

I think it can also be the music video for the song Lost boys life.

I was out and about today and was thinking that maybe it's Darren's solo album, and then returned and saw Lin's post.  :happy face  I've been hoping Darren would keep his word and release his solo album this year, so can't wait to see if that happens!  :fingers crossed :fingers crossed

I think Jeremy's idea is a good possibility too.


Darren posted the same mysterious message on twitter and his instagram:

This is funny.  :amused  Darren's friends may like to make fun of him sometimes, but they always support him.  heart

Can't wait to see if this is about Darren's solo album/EP!!!

I couldn't find any info confirming that Darren is on the Today Show's calendar on  August 2, but of course I hope that he is on that show on August 2.     http://www.tvguide.com/tvshows/today/tv-listings/100548/







Darren's Schedule:


July 26                     Noon-time (ET), Darren makes an announcement (guess what?)




August 2                  On the Today Show(?)




August 26                 In the Cosmos/WordTheatre (Los Angeles)






Maybe I'm looking too much into this, but if Darren's announcement on July 26 is about his album, I wonder why he is making it noon-time Eastern Time?

Yes, the "magician" Darren Criss is definitely listed on the Today Show schedule for August 2nd. 
He's actually listed during the 9:00 hour.  Here's a link:
http://www.nbc.com/schedule

You may need to move the week showing at the top of the page to next week, and then scroll down to the 9:00 hour. 

So, here's hoping that . . . 
1.  Darren is truly the guest that day 
2.  this is an appearance (and MUSICAL PERFORMANCE) related to his July 26th announcement! 
(which makes complete sense)
3.  this is perhaps an announcement for another (more EXTENSIVE) tour he will be doing in conjunction with his--ahem--July 26th announcement--ahem-- (like he did with the LU Tour).
4.  if Darren truly has become a magician, that he pulls his long-awaited album/EP out of his hat!  :amused

:fingers crossed

Hi Lilikoiluv! Hi there! 

Thanks for finding that link.  Yup, I see "magician Darren Criss" on their August 2 schedule, at 9 am.  :happy face

 Yes to all three points!  I hope that it is Darren who is their guest that day, and that he does a musical performance!  I also would love to see him do a tour (in conjunction with a release of his solo album, or EP)!

haha!  :amused  It is very exciting to think of the possibility that Darren will be releasing on July 26, his solo album or EP, that his fans have been eagerly waiting for!   :fingers crossed :fingers crossed


I hope you had a nice dinner, Lilikoiluv.  Thanks for your research and your post!  :happy face

Thanks, Lilikoiluv! They also have a mentalist listed in the same time slot, so that's probably where the magician mistake came from. Or I guess they could be having a magician theme that day, but I'm just going to assume they do mean Darren.

@Poppy wrote:Maybe I'm looking too much into this, but if Darren's announcement on July 26 is about his album, I wonder why he is making it noon-time Eastern Time?  
Because that's pretty much the best time he could have picked for ME, obviously. :happy face :happy face
I assume he is doing some promo in New York because he's probably combining this with announcing/promoting Elsie. I think he has some time off from ACS right now because they're filiming Versace scenes and their storylines are so seperate for the most part (I saw casting calls for Italians for Monday/Tuesday and for a fashion show/Vogue party later in the week).

Oops, how many times can we let ourselves get fooled into thinking he's releasing his solo music? :laughing It seemed such an obvious conclusion this time, with that potential performance on the Today Show and all! Oh well, someday. And his cover of I Dreamed A Dream has always been so pretty, it's nice to have a recorded version.

Whoo Hooo!!  Thanks so much, Lin!  I really have a lot of affection for darrencriss-news, so this is great news for me, and for fans who like to refer to the valuable resource that DCN is and was!    I used to feel a bit sad when I would see a pic or video referring to DCN, knowing the the darrencrissnews.com domain had expired.   broken heart 

So . . . YEA!   celebrate :bravo


I'll post the new tumblr site-- darrencriss-news.tumblr.com! --in this thread:   List of Sites on Tumblr/Twitter for News about Darren heart








So it looks like it's confirmed that Darren is on The Today Show for August 2!  :happy face  AND . . . he is not just appearing on The Today Show; he is PERFORMING!!   celebrate clapping hands  As our wonderful Lilikoiluv had noted, he is to appear 9-10 am on August 2, on The Today Show on NBC!  I already have arranged to record it.  Don't forget!

Darren Criss Scheduled to Perform On August 2 TODAY Show

July 28, 2017

The initial listings for the August 2 TODAY Show advertised a performance by “magician Darren Criss.”


While it seemed likely the error concerned the “magician” part rather than the “Darren Criss” part, the possibility still existed that NBC was referring to “magician Criss Angel.”


NBC just issued a revised lineup for the episode, and it removes the ambiguity.


It will be musician Darren Criss performing on the show.


Criss will take the stage during the 9-10AM (“Today’s Take”) hour of the broadcast. The block will also feature appearances by Will Poulter and Algee Smith as well as Dean Cain.
