STARS ON ICE Tour to Arrive at Joe Louis Arena, 4/27
When America's top figure skaters convene in Boston on January 9th for the U.S. Championships, two things will be at stake - a trip to Sochi, Russia for the Winter Olympics and a coveted spot skating in the 2014 Tour of the Emmy-Award winning Stars on Ice.
The country's premier figure skating production, Stars on Ice, is proud to announce that America's figure skating champions, and top Olympic medal contenders at the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, Russia will headline this year's nationwide tour. Bringing the spirit and passion of the U.S. Olympic Figure Skating team back to home ice, this year's highly anticipated Stars on Ice production will arrive in Detroit on Sunday, April 27 for a 4:00 PM performance at Joe Louis Arena.
The Stars on Ice 2014 Tour will feature a cast of dazzling young skaters that will look to have their golden dreams come true in Sochi. While the U.S. Championships could infuse the cast with a few surprise medalists, some favorites are also top candidates to be part of the 2014 Stars on Ice Tour. Two-time and reigning U.S. Champion Ashley Wagner and U.S. Silver Medalist Gracie Gold, have become two of America's most popular performers, and would be among the most coveted headliners on this year's tour. Other headliners could be Stars on Ice veterans, Ice Dancers Meryl Davis & Charlie White. The popular duo won Silver, and the hearts of America, at the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver, and followed that with Gold at the 2013 World Championships in London, ON. Davis & White hope to make this year's Tour a road show for an Olympic Gold Medal.
Stars on Ice continues to be a pioneer in figure skating by offering fans the rare opportunity to witness some of America's most creative and cherished champions performing together in both individual and ensemble routines. Founded and produced by Olympic Gold Medalist Scott Hamilton, Stars on Ice is one of the premier family entertainment events in the U.S., and the only figure skating tour in America, bringing you the greatest performances and competitors from the 2014 Winter Games.
