It’s the show you’ve been waiting for! Strictly Come Dancing professionals Aljaž Škorjanec, Giovanni Pernice and Gorka Marquez have announced they are combining their incredible talents and will tour the UK with a brand new show Here Come The Boys. The tour will call at 38 cities across the country, kicking off on Saturday 15 June in Carlisle.
From the producers of the smash-hit dance shows Rip it Up and Remembering Fred, Here Come The Boys is directed and choreographed by Gareth Walker and co-choreographed by Strictly Come Dancing professional dancer Janette Manrara.
The show differs from the hit TV show from which Škorjanec, Pernice and Marquez are known. Set in a nightclub, an accompanying DJ will be spinning dance-floor anthems, club classics and guilty pleasures. Live vocals will come from Elizabeth Troy (formerly with Clean Bandit) setting the sound for each night’s show.
Audience members will also get to try their hand as judges when the dancers go head-to-head in a battle of Latin, ballroom, commercial and contemporary dance. The winner is decided by the audience each night.
Speaking of the tour Aljaž said, “Having worked on Strictly Come Dancing with Gorka and Giovanni for the past four years, I know we are going to deliver a truly incredible show for audiences all over the UK. And while we might all be the best of friends, the show’s competitive element means that there will be no love lost when we battle it out on the dance floor to win the audience vote. Serious bragging rights are at stake!”
The tour arrives at London’s Adelphi Theatre on Sunday 14 July with both a matinee and evening performance.
General ticket sale begins at 10am on Friday 18 January.
