Cast Of Glee To Perform In Chicago, Whoopee

2010_02_glee.jpg We hate Glee. We wanted to like it, we really did, but we found it reached the levels of "4th season Ally McBeal awfulness" only half a season into its initial run. It had a promising beginning, but now we just view so much of it to be trite and contrived (although if the writers injected about 75% more Jane Lynch into the show we might be tempted to revisit our opinion).

But we are in the minority with our beliefs. Most people love the show, and while we can't begin to imagine why, we're sure they are ecstatic that the principle cast members will be appearing at The Rosemont Theatre on May 25 to slather hits by Journey and Kanye West with their syrupy delivery. The Sun-Times reports cast members slated to appear include "Lea Michele (who plays Rachel), Cory Monteith (Finn), Amber Riley (Mercedes), Chris Colfer (Kurt), Kevin McHale (Artie), Jenna Ushkowitz (Tina), Mark Salling (Puck), Dianna Agron (Quinn), Naya Rivera (Santana), Heather Morris (Brittany), Harry Shum, Jr. (Mike) and Dijon Talton (Matt)."

Tickets go on sale to the general public March 6.
