“We currently have no plans of touring the cast this summer,” a spokesman for “Glee” studio 20th Century Fox Television said. Considering the series has yet to officially garner a fourth-season renewal, plans for future tours are unclear as the series takes things one year at a time.

In lieu of a full tour, “Glee” producers are eyeing a one-off benefit concert event that likely would take place in the fall at the Hollywood Bowl and serve as a fundraiser for its arts education charity “Glee” Give a Note. The goal is to raise $10 million this year. Negotiations for such an event have not begun.

Sources say “Glee” co-creator Ryan Murphy was instrumental in getting the cast - which often works 16-hour days filming scenes, recording songs and in dance rehearsals for the musical dramedy - the summer off.

Last year’s tour - which stopped in arenas across the U.S., Canada, England and Ireland - was the 16th-most-successful concert of 2011, grossing more than $40 million and finishing just behind Justin Bieber. All 40 dates sold out with total attendance topping 485,000, according to Billboard.
