You’ve probably been watching Fox’s new show “Empire”–it is the first scripted prime-time series to increase its audience every week since its premiere eight weeks ago–and now you may be able to get in the action away from your couch.

The new hit show may be going on a concert tour! Dana Walden, the co-chair and co-CEO of Fox Television Group, told Entertainment Weekly that there’s a good possibility of a tour, much like the tours for “Glee.”

“What we learned on “Glee” and what we tried to do on “Glee” is be very cognizant that the music business is the tail of this dog—the show is the thing. But we are certainly looking down the line,” Walden said.

In general, she said the network is considering the concert as a branch off from the series, and other options. “We are thinking about what the future is of the brand,” Walden said.
