The Strictly Come Dancing Live UK Tour is waltzing back on the road in January 2018 for 30 supersized spectacular arena shows across the country. Tickets for this smash-hit tour go on sale on Friday 22nd September.
The 2018 tour will see the welcome return to the Strictly family of reigning Strictly Champion Ore Oduba as this year’s host. He will be joined on stage by the FAB-U-LOUS Strictly Judges Craig Revel Horwood (who directs the live show for the eighth year) and Bruno Tonioli, alongside many of the celebrities and professional dancers from the highly anticipated 15th Strictly Come Dancing BBC One TV series. Further casting announcements will be made over the coming months.
Host, Ore Oduba said: “Winning Strictly was the most unforgettable experience and a dream come true. I’m so thrilled that I get to keep that dream alive and take part in the Strictly live tour once again, this time as host. This show and its fans will always hold a special place in my heart so I can’t wait to travel the UK again and meet the fantastic audiences that make Strictly the phenomenon we know and love.”
Craig Revel Horwood revealed: “I’m delighted to be back directing and judging the 2018 tour. I have lots of new surprises up my sleeve – next year is going to be bigger and better than ever before. With Ore as host and a new judging panel too, this tour will be just FAB-U-LOUS!”
Bruno Tonioli added: “I’m delighted to be returning to the Strictly Live shows next year. I’ve missed the huge audiences around the country and I can’t wait to be back on tour – it’s going to be fantastico!”
BBC One’s hugely popular Strictly Come Dancing returns to TV screens later this month with an exciting new celebrity line-up and a host of breathtaking dance routines guaranteed to leave audiences spellbound. And Strictly’s Live Tour is no different – this must-see live event for fans of all ages brings all the magic of the TV show to an arena near you. Showcasing all the amazing choreography and incredible live music that Strictly is famous for, audiences can experience everything they love about the TV show live on stage.
The Live Tour judges will provide their invaluable wisdom, advice and scores at each performance on tour. But not only are the celebrities and their dance partners competing for the Live Tour judges’ scores, they will also be battling to win votes from the arena audiences, who can text vote via their mobile phones and ultimately have the power to decide who wins the coveted Glitterball Trophy at the end of each show.
