Although One Direction is still the #1 most searched for ticket in the land that is Tickifieds.com, it was still and interesting week as a performer I never even heard of popped up at #2 on this weeks’ top 10. That performer is none other than Darren Criss. While I like to think I am pretty knowledgeable when it comes popular musical acts, this one caught me completely off guard. I had to actually ‘google’ Mr. Criss to figure out who the heck he is.
It turns out, Darren Criss is a very talented fellow as he is an actor, singer, song writer and composer. He is mostly know for his role as Blaine on the hit TV Series Glee but he also has had successful stints on How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying and the movie Girl Most Likely.
Criss’s first solo music tour, which is scheduled to visit 16 cities in the U.S. and Canada from May 29 – June 30, 2013, is set to include songs from Glee, StarKid, his Human EP, and new material from his upcoming solo album.
