StarKid Fans! Darren Criss To Join The Gang On Their Space Tour!

Our first real encounter with all you StarKid fans was really something else, so we imagine that this news is going to send you guys into a frenzy of epic proportions.

StarKid is planning a tour around the country with stops in 14-cities this fall, bringing you the music from the YouTube videos you love the most. That's right, we're talking numbers from A Very Potter Musical, Me and My Dick and Starship all performed LIVE. But for some of you, the group just isn't the same without one of their original fearless leaders center stage. Darren Criss helped launch StarKid to stardom, but since his career has taken off with Glee, he hasn't been back with his buds for awhile.

Well, prepare to be amazed, because Darren WILL be joining the StarKid crew on tour after all, but only for one night! It has been CONFIRMED that Darren will performing with StarKid when they roll into NYC's Irving Plaza on November 26th, as he'll already be in town prepping for his stint as J. Pierrepont Finch in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.

We're so thrilled that he's getting the chance to return to his roots while stepping into his future. Such a wonderful turn of events for him.

Well StarKids, who's going???

    Not me, I scored a VIP ticket but I wrote in the wrong credit card info and they wouldn't let me fix it. The session timed out and they gave my ticket away.

    I'll be at both shows at irving that day. Very exciting to see the gang back together!!!



  3. 3

    I'm traveling to NY for the show! The Starkids are such an amazing family, and it will be incredible to see them perform reunited with Darren!! Counting down the days :)



  4. 4

    I'll be at both London, ON shows, the Cleveland show and the afternoon Irving show!!



  5. 5

    I'll be there!! I'm super excited to see Darren reunited with Starkid-I've seen both DC and Starkid separately but it'll be very exciting to see them all together :D



  6. 6

    While I won't see Darren with the gang, I'm super stoked to be seeing Starkid where they all began in Ann Arbor!



  7. 7

    I'll be there in NYC - travelling from Canada to see it, should be an amazing time. Just like his show there in June was!!



  8. 8

    Really exited to see the Starkids together, it's going to be a great show!!

    Unfortunately I live too far away from any of the SPACE Tour stops, but a bunch of my friends are going to support StarKid :) I'm so happy that Darren will get to join his friends for the Irving Shows :) He's one of the most genuine and nice people I have had the privilege to meet and it's really inspiring to know that he has not, nor will he likely ever, forget who he is or where he came from. I'm thankful his busy schedule allows him the opportunity to take part in the SPACE Tour, even if it is just for the one stop.

    Ooh, guys, so glad for all of you! (and really sorry for you xoxoj :( )
    I'm gonna sit in this wonderful place called Russia(._.) and read your reviews and look at the photos. Have fun everybody!

    Well I gotta say for once a good article Perez ; ) Yes, we're all very excited, even the people who can't go :D All Starkids are incredible and talented and I'm pretty sure this is just the beggining of a pretty great future for all of them : )



  12. 12

    i'm going to both NYC shows! i missed darren at irving plaza over the summer so i'm REALLY excited to see him perform and the rest of the starkids, it will be so cool to see him be with his friends :)



  13. 13

    Unfortunately I was unable to snag a ticket, but you better believe I will be watching all of the performances afterward on YouTube ;) So excited that this is happening in the first place, though!



  14. 14

    I just hope that there's not too many Glee fans who go purely for Darren and take away tickets from Starkids! I'd sell my right arm to go but sadly they're not coming to Britain…



  15. 15

    I'll be crying endlessly into my pillow in Europe..



  16. 16

    I would love to go to see the StarKid Space Tour, but it is so pupular here in the south that the November 13 Dallas show sold out in minutes, a second show was added for the afternoon, and that show sold out at well! So that proves there are lots of StarKid fans as well as Darren Criss fans!



  17. 17

    I'm so happy that Darren is able to join them on this tour (even just one night) and i'm not even going (I live in CA). But I'm hoping for another leg of the tour later to be on the West Coast! So glad they're all back together for some performances!!



  18. 18

    So excited…YES. I will be at the 12p show.



  19. 19

    I'll be there in NY! I even snagged a VIP ticket. So excited!



  20. 20

    Unfortunately I won't be seeing Darren with the Starkids but I did get a VIP ticket for the Austin show and I CANNOT wait. The whole Starkid team is simply amazing!! Besides, I'll be seeing Darren on Broadway in January (I'm flying in from Texas to go) so I can't be too bummed about him only going to the NYC SPACE tour shows = )



  21. 21

    Will be seeing them in Austin. Can't wait!



  22. 22

    I wish I could go… I have a prior commitment that day in NYC! too bad they are not adding a show on Sunday. I would be there!!! Love my Starkids!



  23. 23

    Taking my daughter with me to the night show for SPACE in London, ON. She's a 5 year old Starkiddie/Gleek and I love the fact that we can see/support the Starkids together live in our hometown! Someday I hope to get the chance to see Darren live with her, hopefully when he tours for his album.



  24. 24

    So excited for the darren/starkids and tour…unfortunately i wont make it to the nyc show but i will be at the show in ann arbor!



  25. 25

    sounds like so much fun - wish I was able to travel to where they are going to be performing - it's gonna be totally awesome! :)



  26. 26

    I wish I was going. It was impossible to get tickets because the group is more main-stream now, as evidenced by this story being published on your site. It seems that a great deal of fans were GREEDY and got tickets to more than one of the shows (I see two such people in the comments here), when some of us got NOTHING. I think it's really inconsiderate and incredibly unfair for so many people to take away ticket-buying opportunities for other fans in the area. I'm very disappointed. Also, scalpers suck. I don't trust any other websites selling tickets for one second. I'm not about to pay over $100 for a ticket with no guarantee that I'm the only person they sold that bar code to. But, bravo to Team StarKid for putting together what is bound to be another totally awesome event. I've seen them perform at a handful of other events, and I'm sure they'll be around for a while as a comedy group, so there will be plenty of other performances to attend - hopefully with more venues and better ticket availability next time.

    so awesome to see the tour promoted - it may make it harder to see them right now (I can't) but more support means more tickets sold means they can schedule a bigger tour next time - just really happy for them, they work so hard!



  28. 28

    I am SO EXCITED!!! I have a VIP ticket for the Austin show!!! Can't wait to see all the Starkids and the amazing Charlene Kaye!!! Darren will not be at my show but I am planning on seeing him on Broadway in January!!! I am flying out from Texas to see him with some friends I made in the DCST!!! So happy to here Darren will be doing a show with the starkids :D even if its not my show :)

    Re: CaliforniaDreamer
    I don't think it's greedy or inconsiderate of fans if they have the chance and means to go to more than one show. They were online stressing to get tickets just like everyone else. If it hadn't been a fan it would have been a scalper who would have gotten it. Yes, it sucks that people didn't get tickets. Some very very close friends of mine didn't. However them Starkid sold out will mean more profit and more encouragement to do more shows. Don't worry, a chance will come up to see them.



  30. 30

    I've got a ticket for the Charlotte show! I couldn't be more excited!



  31. 31

    I wish I could go! I flew from my hometown in Florida to see Darren at Irving Plaza this summer!! It was AMAZING. Everyone should go if they get the chance- not just for Darren, but for all the super talented Starkids! They're coming a bit closer to home for me this time, but, alas… I'm still broke from my fabulous summer adventure (totally worth it).



  32. 32

    I love seeing Darren and Starkid as a unit!! Plus Charlene will be there =D Unfortunately I am only going to the Boston show (curse those scalpers). But even though Darren won't be there it'll still be totally awesome!



  33. 33

    I so wish I could go to the Space Tour. I adore Starkid whether or not Darren is there I don't really care, he is just an awesome added bonus. All of the members are so so so incredibly talented!!! (and friendly!) I am from st. louis and was even contemplating skipping 3 of my classes just to go to Chicago but I decided it would be too expensive. I cannot wait til I get to see any of them going. Thanks for writing about them Perez! Hope to see more about Team Starkid in the future!

    Didn't get a ticket for NY :( But maybe I'll get one in the third show! I actually don't care that people have tickets to both shows… They deserve it for the stress and time they spent. I stressed too but I made it to my computer at 10:02 so I couldn't get anything… It annoys be though that they say that two tickets isn't enough. Seriously?! And the people that are going to the concert JUST for Darren because. Yes, we all know he's supermegafoxyawesomehot but seriously those of you who snagged tickets who are ONLY diehardGeeks, you will probably know none of the songs that Darren will play. The chances of him playing something from Glee is 1 in a million. It's called the S.P.A.C.E. tour, not the G.L.E.E. tour (Not talking about the Starship Glee :P ) Don't get me wrong though, I absolutely love Glee and Starkid as seperate passions! I just don't love the people who kind of taken the Starkids chances of seeing the team because they wanted to see Darren.
