Strictly Come Dancing – The Live Tour is back!
Celebrating 10 FAB-U-LOUS years, the Strictly Come Dancing Live UK Tour extravaganza is back on the road in January 2017 for 30 spectacular super-sized shows across the country!
BBC One’s hugely popular entertainment show Strictly Come Dancing returns to TV screens later this month with a new exciting celebrity line-up and a host of breathtaking dance routines guaranteed to leave audiences spellbound. And Strictly's Live Tour is no different - this must-see event for fans of all ages brings the magic of the TV show to an arena near you.
This year's tour will star TV Judges Len Goodman and Craig Revel Horwood. They will be joined on the judging panel by former Strictly professional dancer and winner of the 2006 series, Karen Hardy. The tour will also feature a brand new host, Countryfile's Anita Rani, who was a semi-finalist in the 2015 series and a contestant on this year’s live tour.
Craig Revel Horwood will direct the tour for the seventh year, creating 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.
This entertainment extravaganza will star many of the celebrities and professional dancers from the hugely anticipated 14th BBC One 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 coming months
The judges will provide their invaluable wisdom, advice and scores at each performance on tour. 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 coveted Glitterball Trophy at the end of each show.
Please note: Tickets will be posted out one week before the event.

Manchester Arena Seat Plan
Choose your seats from the plan of the Manchester Arena above. If you're making your first visit to a theatre or you're simply unsure about where you'd most like to be seated, here's a quick guide to help you choose:
The Stalls are level with and closest to the stage. The Dress Circle (or simply the Circle) is the level of seating above the Stalls. The Upper Circle or Grand Circle is above the Dress Circle. The Balcony, above the Upper Circle, is the highest level of seating.
The Manchester Arena is situated at Victoria Station near the Printworks in central Manchester. Built in 1995, this 21,000 seat venue was a joint design venture by companies DLA Ellerbe Beckett, Ove Arup & Partners and Austin-Smith: Lord.
On the Manchester Arena’s opening night, 15,000 spectators watched Olympic Gold Medal-winners Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean perform on the ice. The event was the best-attended ice-skating performance of all time. Among the many notable personalities to have graced the Arena’s stage since then are Lady Gaga, Kylie Minogue, boxer Amir Khan and Lee Evans.
Today, the Manchester Arena enjoys consistent success and is one of the major centres in the North in which to see touring musicals, big-name music concerts and a wide range of sporting events.
The venue attracts over one million visitors each year and was named International Venue of the Year in 2002. That same year, U2 played at the Arena in front of 19,384 fans - the biggest audience on their European Elevation Tour. Lead singer Bono declared the Arena to be the best venue in the country following the band’s performance.
In 2010 the Arena held its 15th anniversary party, which included performances by Alexandra Burke, Pixie Lott, Beverley Knight, The Saturdays and Peter Kay.
The layout, size and atmosphere of the Manchester Arena make it the perfect place to see rock and pop gigs, stand-up comedy and children’s events. Recent successes include Morrissey, the UK tour of Jesus Christ Superstar and Disney on Ice: Passport to Adventure.
Whatever you decide to see at the Manchester Arena, we wish you an entertaining and rewarding visit.
