Singer-songwriter Darren Criss to perform live in Toronto in December
While you can generally say it’s starting to look a lot like Christmas, this year singer-songwriter Darren Criss gives us a reason to celebrate at Crissmas.
Former Emmy, Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild winner Criss released his very first holiday album with A very Darren Crissmas across Decca Records, with a plethora of party songs and even a few guest appearances from stars such as Adam Lambert, Evan Rachel Wood and Lainey Wilson.
Torontonians will soon have the opportunity to hear tracks from the album performed live as Criss’s North American Tour – A Very Darren Crissmas Tour – stops in Toronto on Saturday, December 18 for a performance at Massey Hall .
Kicking off in Indianapolis on December 3, the tour takes Criss and the joyous tunes from her new album to cities including Chicago, Louisville, Philadelphia, Boston and Rochester, before a closing concert takes place in Hershey, PA.
Over the years, the star has written songs for the musical. Royalty fee, co-wrote “Starting Now” for Disney (which was performed by Brandy), and also headlined the iHeartRadio Music Festival with Steve Aoki.
In August of this year, Criss released Masquerade – a collection of EPs of what he describes as character-driven singles. Now, the musician’s many talents can be found in his collection of timeless holiday tracks, both unpredictable and delicious.
The album, produced by Grammy-nominated Ron Fair, features “(Everybody’s Waitin ‘For) The Man With the Bag” with Lambert, “Somewhere in My Memory” with voice of Wood and “Drunk on Christmas” with Wilson , among other songs.
