Fox is now looking to do a tour of live concerts based on the show — just like Glee did a couple of years ago!
And since that was pretty successful, we're guessing it's going to happen soon!
Here's what co-chair and co-CEO of Fox Television Group Dana Walden said:
"We are thinking about what the future is of the brand. What we learned on Glee and what we tried to do on Glee is be very cognizant that the music business is the tail of this dog—the show is the thing. But we are certainly looking down the line. There's no reason not to think of having all sorts of ancillary opportunities with this show. We're certainly thinking about idea of doing a live concert series."
We hope they follow through with this brilliant idea! We'd definitely pay to see that!

Empire has already sort of followed Glee's footsteps of releasing iTunes singles from each episode, and will also be dropping a soundtrack for this debut season on March 10th!
Until a live concert series does actually happen, we'll have to settle for watching the brilliant musical numbers from the show!
