"Glee" co-creator Ryan Murphy, who also directs the tour, recently told EW.com that the "Glee" Live! tour will feature 15-18 songs and a story. "We made a decision to do our biggest hits because that’s what fans want to see. It’s a concert tour, but it also has a story in it," Murphy said.
The live production also features a set designed by Lady Gaga's set designer, according to Murphy. Es Devlin rendered the dazzling video-infused white box set for Gaga's Monster Ball Tour. “It’s a huge stage. We’ve got multimedia. It’s really big. Fox believes in it so much that they’ve hired the best people," Murphy added.
The tour features such songs as "Don’t Stop Believin," "Somebody To Love," "Jump," "Don't Rain on My Parade" and "Sweet Caroline."
