We’ve been teased for weeks. We’ve been shown snippets here and there of what will be on offer, always just enough to leave us wanting more. Well now finally, thanks to Ricky Winowiecki and the rest of the team at Ann Arbor T-Shirt Company, we now have a complete look at the range of tour merchandise, that will be available for Darren Criss’, ‘Listen Up’ Tour, which kicks off today, May 29, at The Fillmore in San Francisco. There is something for everyone on offer, including t-shirts, promo and tour posters, lanyards, badges/buttons, iPhone cases, Darren’s signature colourful sunglasses and socks, yes you read that right, socks, bright yellow and pink polka dotted socks. With prices ranging from a mere $1 for the buttons to $30 for the tour t-shirt, there is something for all budgets, so no one will miss out on owning their own piece of memorabilia from these sold out events.
It’s been widely hoped by most, if not all of Darren’s fans, that someday he would release his own full length studio album. And for fans lucky enough to have scored themselves tickets, to one or more of his sold out shows, they should be in for a real treat, as Darren himself has promised to give those in attendance the first opportunity to hear new songs from his highly anticipated album.
Touring with a full band, not only will Darren be previewing his new works, but he will also be performing some of our favourites from the StarKid shows, Glee and of course his EP, Human, which was released in 2010.
The Listen Up tour will be Darren’s first ever headlining tour and will see him visit 16 cities across the US and Canada, starting in California, and finishing up in Silver Spring, Maryland on June 30.
