“When we did the first-leg of the LM/DC Tour, we didn’t think we were going to survive one another through the end,” joked Michele and Criss. “All kidding aside, we loved every minute of it. Each city warmly embraced us with a good time and high energy. We have the best fans and when we heard them wanting more, we absolutely wanted to deliver. We couldn’t be more thrilled to take the LM/DC Tour to the west coast and overseas to the UK!”
Michele last hit the road in the spring of 2017 for a string of sold out shows on her Intimate Evening With North America tour. Performing songs from her albums “Louder” and “Places” critics stated “Lea created a really beautiful night and performance. One of the key factors in the concert being so warm and welcoming was the fact that you knew everyone in the room was feeling the same.”
Criss most recently released a five-track indie EP entitled Homework, his first solo project in over seven years. It debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Chart while SiriusXM described it as a “nice hybrid of early Elton John and Ben Folds.” In 2017, he debuted his indie-pop band Computer Games along with his brother Chuck Criss with their first album Lost Boys Life EP. Billboard deemed the bands single “Every Single Night” as a contender for song of the summer.
