Detroit Gleek City

Glee Live! In Concert! came to the Detroit area this past Monday night performing to a sold out crowd at The Palace of Auburn Hills. Not originally intending to see the show, I succumbed at the last moment to a third row seat that I magically found the day of the concert. (Full disclosure: I don't have super powers. But, thank you for asking. Truth is, the night before the show, the venue opened up an entire new section in the pit adjacent to the stage.)

Not very far from the TV show's Lima, Ohio-based setting, 12 McKinley High Glee Clubbers performed a 22-song set: Lea Michele (Rachel), Cory Monteith (Finn), Amber Riley (Mercedes), Chris Colfer (Kurt), Kevin McHale (Artie), Jenna Ushkowitz (Tina), Mark Salling (Puck), Naya Rivera (Santana), Heather Morris (Brittany), Harry Shum, Jr. (Mike), Chord Overstreet (Sam) and Darren Criss (Blaine). Dianna Agron (Quinn), typically part of the tour, was absent at this particular show, tweeting afterwards:

Detroit! I am terribly sorry I couldn't be at the show tonight, it was out of my power. I WILL be back tomorrow. Much love, Di

Two live Crystal Bowersox videos

Last week, I posted about the two fantastic Crystal Bowersox concerts in Toledo. I promised to post a couple videos I shot at the 10 p.m. show, and here they are. Enjoy and share!
