ALEXANDRIA, Va. - The prospect of seeing a "Glee" cast member or winning a ticket to a live "Glee" performance lured many fans of the FOX show into the heat here on Thursday.

Fans camped-out and lined-up at the AT&T Store on Jefferson Davis Highway for a pre-show event scheduled from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. during which two cast members will make an appearance and two tickets to their show will be given away.

On Thursday night, the full "Glee" cast will perform at 7 p.m. at the Verizon Center.

Store managers said they've been fielding phone calls for days from folks wanting to camp out in hopes of scoring tickets, they said.

The store's event also will feature a mini-concert from the T.C. Williams High School choir and free slushies to cool things off.
