Figure skating superstars Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir have unveiled their new figure skating show that promises to bring the highest level of on-ice talent to bear in a touring production called Rock the Rink.
The Canadian pairs stars will feature a first-class light show, interactive technology and live music, with featured special musical guest, Birds of Bellwoods.
“Last year, we rode the Olympic wave and carried the momentum through the Thank You Canada tour – a fulfilling project that truly allowed us to connect with fans coast to coast,” says Virtue. “This year, it’s critical that we elevate the production and generate authentic entertainment in new and creative ways. Scott and I have spent our career striving for more, taking risks, and daring ourselves to be better…our approach to this is no different.”
The production will tour across Canada, the duo said in a press release, and will include a few select U.S. cities as well. Much like the Thank You Canada Tour, the cast will feature Canadian greats, Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir, Patrick Chan, Kaetlyn Osmond and Elvis Stojko.
But it will also feature world-renowned skating talent from Europe and the U.S.. Italian Olympic Medalist and World Champion, Carolina Kostner, and Italian World Champions, Anna Cappellini and Luca Lanotte, will each tour in North America for the first time, while Olympic Medalist and four time U.S. National Champion, Jeremy Abbott, will return to Canadian touring for the first time in seven years.
Tickets will go on sale May 3 at RocktheRink.com. Launching on Oct. 5 in Abbotsford, B.C., Rock the Rink will visit more than 30 cities before wrapping in St. John’s, Nfld.
The show hits Sudbury Arena on Nov. 1.
