Strictly Come Dancing Live: dates, tickets and lineup info as the tour makes ‘magnificent’ return

The Strictly Come Dancing Live tour will feature celebs and professionals from the series.

Strictly Come Dancing returned to our screens on 25 September and has been making history – and headlines – ever since.

The 19th series of the hit BBC show includes its first all-male pairing, with Bake Off star, John Whaite and professional dancer, Johannes Radebe.

The openly gay duo, who are ready to “inspire young people”, took to the dance floor against 14 other couples to lift the Strictly Come Dancing glitter ball trophy.

This year’s line up included Rose Ayling-Ellis – the first deaf person to compete on the show – Tom Fletcher, Dan Walker, Judi Love and AJ Odudu.

Every year following the airing of Strictly Come Dancing, a number of the show’s stars head out on a UK and Ireland tour to entertain audiences.

This couldn’t happen in 2021 for the first time due to the global pandemic, but it’s been confirmed that the tour will go ahead in 2022.

The producers say fans will “see the return of the magnificent live arena tour” with a host of celebs and professional dancers “waltz around the country” for 33 shows.

You can find out everything you need to know (so far) about the Strictly Come Dancing Live tour and remember – keep dancing!
