The two powerhouse vocalists brought their LM/DC Tour through town on Nov. 1 -- and, as expected, they put on an amazing show. It is Michele's second headlining tour, which is promoting her second studio album "Places," and Criss' second concert tour as well, promoting his latest EP "Homework."
The duo had originally set out on the road earlier this summer -- but announced West Coast dates in September. "We loved every minute of the first leg of the LM/DC Tour,” said Michele and Criss in a press release at the time. “We have the best fans and when we heard them wanting more, we absolutely wanted to deliver." They did!
The two, of course, have a little history together: They met on the set of the Fox television series "Glee" in 2010, as the characters of Rachel Berry and Blaine Anderson, respectively. Michele received an Emmy nomination, two Golden Globe nominations and three Grammy Award nominations for her work on "Glee" between 2009-2015. Criss was also nominated for an Emmy in 2015 for writing the song "This Time" for the show's finale -- while his first number on "Glee" (a cover version of Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream") became the show's fastest-selling single, ultimately reaching No. 8 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
After "Glee" wrapped, Michele went on to star in the Ryan Murphy series "Scream Queens" and the ABC sitcom "The Mayor," while Criss was recently seen in the second installment of "American Crime Story" (another Murphy series) subtitled "The Assassination of Gianni Versace" -- a role that earned him a 2018 Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series or Movie.
The two stars, who both got their start in musical productions, put on a dazzling show that combined covers, originals, Broadway hits, and more. They performed duets on numbers including Stephen Sondheim's "Broadway Baby," the Swell Season's "Falling Slowly," the Human League's "Don't You Want Me" and "Shallow" -- a cover of the Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper track from their recent "A Star Is Born" film. It was an incredible night -- and when they capped it off with an encore of a tender, acoustic cover of Bob Dylan's "Make You Feel My Love," it couldn't have come to a close in a better way. Bravo, and be sure to come back to San Diego soon!
