Between shooting schedules for the hit TV show Glee, the cast will set out to tour with live concert performances in Chicago, Los Angeles and New York City's Radio City Music Hall, while songs by Madonna and Aerosmith will get the Glee treatment on the show itself.
At a recent television seminar, PaleyFest, in Los Angeles, cast members spoke to fans in the audience, revealing news on upcoming episodes when the show, which airs on the Fox network in the US, resumes, starting April 13.
"We are going to do an episode in the second season with all original music," show co-creator Ryan Murphy announced at the event. In addition, the second show of the new season, titled "Vogue," will be devoted to 10 Madonna songs.
Also, one of the episodes will include a Lady Gaga song, and Neil Patrick Harris, who opened up the Oscars, will be a guest star on Glee, performing an Aerosmith and a Billy Joel song."
Meanwhile, a "flashmob" event in a Madrid shopping mall to promote the show's debut on television in Spain included seemingly a "simultaneous" public dance performance to songs from the show, opening with Journey's classic "Don't Stop Believin'." To view it:
