Dancing on Ice - The Live Tour 2012

Event preview

ON NOVEMBER 25, 2011 tickets will go on general sale for Dancing on Ice The Live Tour 2012.

After wowing more than a million people across the country in previous years with stunning ice performances, skating legends Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean will headline the sixth live UK tour of Dancing on Ice and lead an all-star celebrity line-up to arenas across the country, starting on Friday, April 13, 2012 in Newcastle.

All of the celebrities will be trained and choreographed by Torvill and Dean, who will also perform on the tour. The celebrity line-up will be announced soon, together with the panel of rink-side judges who will critique their performances.

The three-and-a-half week UK tour will travel to arenas in Newcastle (April 13-15), London (April 17), Manchester (April 18 and 19), Nottingham (April 20-22), Sheffield (April 24-26), Birmingham (April 27-29), Liverpool (May 1 and 2) and Glasgow (May 4-7).

At each performance the audience can vote for their favourite celebrity skater. Using the same format as the hit ITV1 show, spectators can use their mobile phones to text vote for their favourite celebrity. Audience votes will then be added to scores from the judges to decide the overall celebrity winner. The winning couple then take to the ice for a magical finale performance.

As with previous tours, all profits from text voting will go to charity. An impressive £106,475 has been raised to date and has been donated to the Royal London Society For The Blind and Demelza Hospice Care for Children.

This year, the Dancing On Ice Tour has started the DOI Super Fan initiative where ticket holders will be given a web address through which they can upload their name and image. Their name will then appear in the tour programme and their photo will form part of a unique tour poster for the show!

A DVD of the 2011 tour has been released by NBC Universal, priced £19.99. It captures the entire live arena experience featuring a full length show filmed during last year’s tour. As well as stunning live performances from ice legends Torvill and Dean, there are also routines from the 2011 Dancing on Ice winner, EastEnders actor, Sam Attwater.

NB: The Live Dancing on Ice Tour 2012 will visit Wembley Arena on Tuesday, April 17 (4.30pm and 8pm) – to book call 0844 815 0815 or visit visit www.ticketzone.co.uk
