2022 will see the return of the magnificent Strictly Come Dancing Live Arena Tour.

This month-long tour will open on 7 May at the Brighton Centre and then play London, Liverpool, Nottingham, Birmingham, Oxford, Portsmouth, Plym-outh, Bournemouth, Cardiff, Salford, Hull, Sheffield, Glasgow, Blackpool and Newcastle, before finishing on 4 June in Edinburgh.
