Unfortunately no other details about his solo album were unveiled, so it looks like our first look at the songs will come at the “Listen Up” tour’s debut show in San Francisco on May 29.

Criss released this video to talk about today’s new album and tour announcement:

The venues on this tour compare in size to the ones played by Team StarKid on both their “Space” and “Apocalyptour.” Judging by the success the musical theater group had on their own breakout tours, it seems as though Darren’s shows will be appropriate for the spaces chosen.

In the past, Darren has generally performed completely solo with an acoustic guitar and keyboard, so this will be a new experience for him and fans.

Will you be able to attend one of Darren Criss’ live tour dates this summer?

    I’m going either to Boston or New York- I hope!

    I will probably go to the HOB in LA. The other option would be Anaheim but I hate driving that far on a Friday. I wonder how much tickets will cost and how quickly they’ll sell out.

  • snuffles44

    See y’all in Boston!

  • Kristen Kranz

    Ann Arbor or Cleveland for me!! So glad to see the Ohio/Michigan dates. Now to wait for that pre-sale code… Is it Thursday yet??

    • gleeky-potterhead

      I’m really excited about the Ann Arbor date. It’s about a week after I get out of school, so that’s perfect for me. Now how to convince my parents…

  • Marie

    None of these are Atlanta! Nooooo! :-(

  • Ev42

    *wistful sigh* I do wish I had the money to fly over & go… Have fun, North-Americans-and-other-people-with-cash-who-can-go-you-lucky-lucky-bastards!

    Dang it. And here I was hoping that the dates would extend into his film schedule for Glee. lol. But I’ll go to one if it’s nearby.

  • B.

    crossing my fingers for a starkid reunion and that some fans get it on youtube so i can cry my eyes out.
    i feel defeated that time and time again i miss out on these epic events :(

  • valaina

    It’s sad that it’s not an international tour, but I know that he’ll always come back here in the Philippines, on tour or not. :D But who knows? Maybe if the album does well.. :)

  • Tara

    woe to any American here who moan about tour dates not available in their city
    *drops mic*

  • GoodFinder

    “How busy I am with… Starkid” What? You’ve spent like three days total with Starkid in the last year.

    • Charlie

      i think that’s more of a shout out to team starkid. its like he is confirming/ letting people know that he is still a starkid even if its just for brief appearances if that makes sense

  • JAs

    Ironic that the tour kicks off on my birthday but no where near my country. But yaaaayyy!!!

  • LilyCat03

    There are actually three venues that are close to me: Cleveland, Indianapolis, and Ann Arbor. For once it actually pays to live in Ohio, I’m definitely getting tickets!

    It’s times like these I hate living in Phoenix.

    Ugh, he’s coming to Michigan the day before exams. Either I see Darren Criss and fail my trig exam or don’t see him and pass. Decisions, decisions.

    • starkidfan97

    Apocalyptour at Anaheim was one of my favorite experiences ever. Hope to see Darren there, too!
