The cast of ‘Glee’ are coming to Ireland for a series of concerts, it has been announced.

Two shows will take place Dublin on July 2 and 3, 2011, as well as in Manchester and London in the UK.

Presale tickets for the Dublin show are released at Ticketmaster outlets next Monday at 9am.

The stars of the US musical drama will perform tracks that have featured in the series, including ‘Empire State of Mind’, ‘Toxic’, ‘My Life Would Suck Without You’, ‘It’s My Life’ and signature track ‘Don't Stop Believin'’ by Journey.

The ‘Glee Live! In Concert!’ tour will be based on the mini-tour of four American cities the cast went on earlier this year.

‘Glee’ co-creator Ryan Murphy said: "We had such a great time putting together last year's shows and the response from the fans was incredible.

"People around the world want to see our cast live and in person, so this European tour is our way of thanking them for the unbelievable way they've embraced our little show.

"And for everyone in America who has asked if we'll be back to a city near them this summer, stay tuned. We'll have some exciting news very soon."

Fans will be able to see Lea Michele (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), Chord Overstreet (Sam) and Darren Criss (Blaine).

Monteith said that he is excited about crossing the Atlantic.

He said: “We had so much fun on tour last year that we were all itching to do it again.

"The fact that we're going to Europe to play arenas is mind-blowing. This show has been quite a ride."
