Dancing with the Stars Tour

On the October 25, 2006 results show, Dancing with the Stars – The Tour (based on another British BBC show Strictly Dance Fever) was announced, featuring stars and dancers from US seasons 1-3. The tour is planned to perform in 38 cities, and is scheduled to begin in San Diego on December 19, 2006 and end in Atlantic City on February 11, 2007. The pairs set for the tour are:

* Joey McIntyre and Kym Johnson
* Drew Lachey and Cheryl Burke
* Lisa Rinna and Louis Van Amstel
* Joey Lawrence and Edyta Sliwinska
* Willa Ford and Maksim Chmerkovskiy
* Harry Hamlin and Karina Smirnoff

Looks like a pretty decent selection of dancers. My obvious favorites have to be Karina Smirnoff, Kym Johnson and Edyta Sliwinska (not necessarily in that order). They are coming to Las Vegas so I’ll have to look at going.

A few other comments:

“The tour gives us an unprecedented opportunity to evolve the Dancing brand,” commented Paul Telegdy, SVP of BBC Worldwide Programming & Production. “As the current number one network show it is evident that our next step should be to take Dancing on the road and we’re delighted that Slim-fast is joining us on this journey. The production qualities of the television show are undoubtedly a key component to its success and we are confident that our partnership with AEG Live, will ensure The Tour will mirror this high standard that the public rightly associate with the brand.”

“Dancing with the Stars – The Tour” will be choreographed by Louis Van Amstel with Carrie Ann Inaba serving as the show’s creative director. The live show will feature celebrity group and solo dances along with sets from the professional dancers. In addition, the show will feature two huge video screens to the left and right of the stage that will feature never-before-scene rehearsal footage and exclusive behind the scenes interviews and outtakes as well as many surprise extras.
