Strictly Come Dancing will be returning to arenas around the UK early next year.

Hosted once again by former Strictly Champion Ore Oduba, the tour will be waltzing back into action on 18 January 2019 for 29 shows. Tickets will go on sale this Friday 21 September at 8 AM, with a pre-sale from Wednesday 19 September.

Ore Oduba said: “Goes without saying, I’m so excited to be back hosting the Tour again!  As many people know, Strictly means a lot to me so to be back with the gang…well, let’s just say it didn’t take long for me to say ‘yes’!  I had the best time hosting the 2018 tour, the Strictly fans were as loud and excitable as ever. And I’m sure 2019 will be no different, we’ve got a sensational show planned. And yes – when we hit the road in January – I will be packing my dancing shoes!”

Next year’s tour begins at the Arena Birmingham before visiting cities including Leeds, Manchester, Liverpool, Sheffield, Glasgow and Nottingham. There’ll also be a show at the SSE Arena Wembley before the tour ends with four performance at London’s O2 Arena on 9 and 10 February.
