We don’t really understand the appeal of Glee, but we’d be lying if we said we were entirely immune to its charms. More than 25 tunes sung by youngsters at the (fictional) William McKinley High School have charted in the US Billboard Top 100 – making them the biggest ‘band’ of 2009. And they’re not even a real band.
The ‘spirit’ of the show’s Ohio backwaters has since been dragged across the USA, UK and Ireland in clap-tastic musical Glee Live! In Concert!, and 10 actors from the London West End show will be taking to the stage alongside local super-fans for this Dubai-based Glee ‘tribute’. Expect to hear ‘Don’t Stop Believing’, ‘Livin’ on a Prayer’, ‘Gold Digger’, ‘Don’t Stop Me Now’, ‘Somebody to Love’, ‘Keep Holding On’, and plenty more karaoke classics.
