STRICTLY COME DANCING LIVE TOUR 2013 opens next week! Louis Smith and more to take to the floor




Strictly Come Dancing fans will have another chance to see the newly crowned Strictly winner, GB Olympian Louis Smith, on the UK Tour starting on 18 January.

Following an intense BBC One final, watched by an audience of more than 14 million, Louis will now recreate his winning moves live on the Strictly Come Dancing UK Tour, which will be touring venues across the country.

A host of stars will be joining Louis on tour, including fellow finalists Denise Van Outen and Dani Harmer, TV actress Lisa Riley, former England cricket captain and legend Michael Vaughan, much loved TV presenter Fern Britton and former England Cricketer Phil Tufnell.

The judging panel features Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli and Craig Revel Horwood, who will also direct the arena tour for the third year running.

Tickets for the 2013 tour went on sale in September and have been selling fast ever since. Over the last five years the tour has sold more than 1.5 MILLION tickets. On tour, Strictly fans get to watch their favourite dancing couples compete live for votes and the all important feedback of the TV judges. The audience members can then vote themselves via their mobile phone.

Arena audiences will experience all of Strictly’s glitz, glamour and breathtaking choreography, right in front of their very eyes.

Opening at the Birmingham NIA on 18 January 2013, the 31-show dance spectacular will travel to the Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle, Glasgow’s SECC, Liverpool’s Echo Arena, Manchester Evening News Arena, London’s O2 Arena, Wembley Arena, Nottingham’s Capital FM Arena and the Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield.

The television format, also known as Dancing with the Stars, entered the Guinness Book of World Records in 2010 as the world’s most successful reality television show and has been sold by BBC Worldwide to over 35 international broadcasters.
