Former 'Glee' stars Lea Michele and Darren Criss will bring a mix of their music from the successful television show, Broadway and their own solo albums on their LM/DC Tour, which includes a June 2 stop at Pittsburgh's Benedum Center.

Lea Michele and Darren Criss have come a long way from their days portraying Rachel Berry and Blaine Anderson, student members of the New Directions glee club at the fictional William McKinley High School on Fox television’s long-running “Glee.”

The two are teaming up for the LM/DC Tour , performing songs from “Glee,” Broadway, and their own original music, and will make a stop June 2 at Pittsburgh’s Benedum Center .

“We’ve always had so much fun performing together for one-off gigs, so it’s high time we took that show on the road,” the two say in a joint statement.

“We share so much musical history together between ‘Glee,’ Broadway, and our own solo projects, so it will be fun to put it all together for our fans in one big show,” they state.

The Glee cast recordings have sold over 10 million singles and garnered over 20 top 40 US Billboard Hot 100 hits.

According to the release, Michele last went out on tour in 2017, performing music from her albums “Louder” and “Places.”

She has been nominated for an Emmy, a SAG Award, and multiple Golden Globes.

Criss most recently released a five-track indie EP entitled “Homework,” his first solo project in over seven years.

In 2017, he debuted his indie-pop band Computer Games along with his brother Chuck Criss with their first album, “Lost Boys Life” EP.

Criss most recently played spree-killer Andrew Cunanan on FX’s series “American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace.

He previously performed several seasons as the lead in the Broadway musical “Hedwig and the Angry Inch.”

Tickets for the general public will go on sale at 10 a.m. April 13.
