Glee star Matthew Morrison has landed his first major solo gig – he’ll be joining Ke$Ha and Jennifer Lopez on the Wango Tango festival bill.
The actor is about to launch his debut solo album, which features collaborations with Elton John and Gwyneth Paltrow, and he’ll kick off a 20-date tour with a festival spot at Staples Center in Los Angeles on 14 May.

Morrison, who plays teacher Will Schuester on the hit show, can’t wait to perform live: “I’ll probably bring my ukelele with me, I’ll probably bring my band with me.”

Wango Tango host Ryan Seacrest has hinted that his co-presenter Britney Spears will introduce Morrison onstage.

Morrison’s first tour will kick off in Minneapolis, Minnesota on 18 June.
