Strictly Come Dancing confirm Live 2016 tour
28 Sep 2015
The Strictly Come Dancing Live tour will return in early 2016 with 30 shows in the UK’s biggest arenas. Tickets are now on sale.
After an action-packed weekend, which saw Strictly Come Dancing return to TV screens for the thirteenth series, a massive tour of the UK has now been confirmed.
Favourite celebrities from the latest series of Strictly, and their professional partners, will visit the UK’s most-popular arenas for the 2016 live tour.
Things will get underway with six shows in Birmingham from 22 to 25 January, including matinee and evening shows, before the celebrities and dancers will waltz their way to cities around the country.
Strictly Come Dancing Live will come to a close with six nights in London, with shows at both The O2 arena and The SSE Arena, Wembley. Check below for full tour dates.
Along with the celebrities, Strictly favourites Len Goodman, Craig Revel Horwood and Bruno Tonilio will take part in the tour, with paddle boards in hand, to judge the contestants.
Strictly Come Dancing returned to television screens on Friday 25 September, and this year’s contestants have already set a high standard.
After a weekend of dancing, highlights included celebrity Pete Andre and his professional dance partner Janette Manrara leading the Strictly board with 30 points, while pro dancer Anton Du Beke (who usually leaves the contest early on) celebrated finally being paired with a celebrity who could dance, presenter Katie Derham.
Along with Peter Andre and Katie Derham, celebrities taking part in series thirteen include chef and presenter Ainsley Harriott, singer Daniel O’Donnell, journalist Jeremy Vine and The Wanted’s Jay McGuiness. The celebrities and professional partners who will be taking part in the tour will be confirmed at a later date.
