Strictly Come Dancing returns for a fab-u-lous ninth year. Judges from the TV series Len Goodman, Craig Revel Horwood and Bruno Tonioli, will be back together again as they are reunited for the 2016 dates. Craig Revel Horwood will also direct the tour for the sixth year in a row. With all of the showbiz sparkle, breathtaking choreography and incredible live music that Strictly is famous for, audiences can experience everything that they love about the TV show live on stage.
Head Judge Len Goodman said: “It’s going to be great to be back on the tour watching some of the best dancers from the TV series out on the road. I can’t wait to find out who will be joining Craig, Bruno and myself – it’s going to be a lot of fun! We’ll be pulling out all the stops, with a terrific line up of celebs and their dance partners.”
Bruno Tonioli said: “It’s going to be fantastico! Who would believe that we’re on to our thirteenth series of Strictly and our ninth live UK tour? I can’t wait to see all those beautiful people in the arenas and all the passion on the dance floor.”
Craig Revel Horwood added: “I am very pleased to have my fellow amigos Len and Bruno back on tour with me! I’m extremely excited to be directing the show again and have lots of new surprises up my sleeve. It’s going to be another fab-u-lous extravaganza for the whole family to enjoy.”
This super-sized spectacular arena tour features many of the celebrities and professional dancers from the hugely anticipated thirteenth series, as they take to the dance floor and recreate their most popular TV dance routines. Details of celebrities and professional dancers appearing on tour will be announced over the next few months.
As with the television show, the judges will provide their invaluable wisdom, advice and scores at each performance. But not only are the celebrities and their dance partners competing for the 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 prized Glitterball Trophy at the end of each performance.
