04.01.11 7 years ago

While the ‘Glee’ kids are hitting the road together this summer, one of the grown-ups will be working on his own tour.

Matthew Morrison — known also as Mr. Schuester on the hit FOX show — has lined up theater and club shows in support of his as-yet-untitled forthcoming solo album.

The party starts off at the Orpheum Theatre in Minneapolis on June 18. Artist presale for tickets is on April 4, an American Express presale starts April 6 and general onsale starts on April 15.

The singer has paired with comedy website Funny Or Die “to create original content for the tour.  The videos will premiere exclusively on Funny Or Die, and Funny Or Die is also producing original content that will be incorporated into the live show,” according to a release.

And in the spirit of his television show, Morrison is letting regional glee clubs open up for his shows. The contest details to enter can be found here.

As previously reported, Morrison has released a new song from his set, “Summer Rain.”He can be seen singing it on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” on April 6 and on “Ellen” on April 11.
