High School Musical: The Concert was a concert tour performed by members of the cast of the popular television film series, High School Musical, sponsored by AEG Live and presented by Buena Vista Concerts. The concert toured cities in the United States, Canada and Latin America. High School Musical: The Concert expanded the Disney Channel franchise that had previously produced a triple-platinum selling soundtrack and had planned a movie sequel. (Disney had recently scored a success with another concert based on a TV musical by The Cheetah Girls, who had a sold-out tour in 88 cities)

The films' original cast members Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, Lucas Grabeel, Corbin Bleu and Monique Coleman took part in the tour, except for Zac Efron, who had a previous engagement filming Hairspray and was replaced by Drew Seeley, who was Efron's singing voice in the first film.

The tour also served to promote the debut album of three members: V by Vanessa Hudgens, Headstrong by Ashley Tisdale and Another Side by Corbin Bleu.

Development[edit]

HSM cast

The concert, which featured songs from the film, also included cast members Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, Lucas Grabeel, Corbin Bleu and Monique Coleman. Zac Efron was the only original cast member absent from the tour due to his previous engagement to the filming of the 2007 film adaptation of the Broadway musical Hairspray. Instead, Drew Seeley, Efron's singing voice in the first film and co-writer of "Get'cha Head in the Game", joined the tour in Efron's place. Jordan Pruitt joined the tour as the opening act. Kenny Ortega, the film's director and choreographer, became the show's touring producer, creative director and director. On the night of the last concert, as seen on YouTube, the cast introduced him before singing the final chorus of "We're All in This Together". The concert typically ran two and a half hours (150 minutes) including the opening act and intermission.

Hudgens during HSM concert

The cast toured four countries in South America: Argentina, Chile, Brazil and Venezuela. Each of the singers had two microphones during the performances: a headset microphone with a nude-colored pad on the tip, and a handheld microphone. The live version of "Start of Something New" recorded at the Houston concert appeared in the Radio Disney Jams Vol. 9 CD. Erin Lareau designed the costumes for the concert tour. "Dance with Me" (from The Cheetah Girls 2, also directed by Kenny Ortega with choreography by Ortega and Charles Klapow) included an extended guitar solo which allowed Monique Coleman to feature in an extended tango number with both backup dancers Jared Murillo and Seeley. Murillo also choreographed "Dance with Me".

Telecasts and recordings[edit]

Tisdale and Grabeel performing "Bop to the Top"

On May 26, 2007, Disney Channel Latin America showed the concert made in Buenos Aires in Argentina. This performance aired none of Ashley Tisdale's songs, and Vanessa Hudgens only sang "Come Back To Me". On June 9, 2007, Canal 13 showed the concert performed in Santiago, Chile, airing all the solo performances. On June 10, 2007, the concert filmed in Mexico City, Mexico aired on Disney Channel Latin America. The concert CD/DVD came from a performance in Houston, Texas on December 18, 2006 at the Toyota Center.[1] The album and video was released on June 26, 2007.[2][3] While the CD and DVD were recorded by Disney at the same show, the two feature slightly alternate edits. For example, when Lucas thanks the cast and crew at the end of "We're All in This Together", he says: "Houston, you have been awesome" and thanks the band on the CD version, while the DVD version skips straight into thanking the cast and dancers. He thanks Jordan Pruitt in real life, but on both the CD/DVD combo and the Extreme All-Access Pass DVD, he never does. The same incident occurred with Lucas introducing the cast at the beginning of the show. In real life, he addressed the fact that Efron couldn't make it on stage but on DVD and CD, he never does.
