Strictly Come Dancing Stars Form Ultimate Boy Band of Dance for Theatre Show ‘Rip It Up’

Turn on, tune in, drop out…Rip It Up will be singing and dancing through the ‘60s.

Strictly Come Dancing champions Harry Judd and Louis Smith MBE and people’s champion Aston Merrygold have announced they are to tour together as the ultimate boy band of dance in the jukebox theatre show ‘Rip It Up’.

Following the smash hit success of Rip It Up’s 1950s-themed debut tour in 2017, which sold over 50,000 tickets across the UK and was widely acclaimed as the most exciting Strictly Come Dancing spin-off tour ever, the 2018 Rip It Up tour promises to bring the fabulous soundtrack of the 1960s to life in an explosion of song and dance.

From Wednesday, 12th September until Wednesday, 31st October, audiences nationwide will witness Harry, Aston and Louis dance their way through many of the defining and most everlasting hits from the decade that changed not just (y)our generation but the world; from Mersey Beat, Motown and Mod to West Coast and Woodstock.

Backed by the exceptional Rip It Up live band and a stunning supporting cast of singers and dancers, the Strictly champions will dance to songs from British legends such as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who, the Bee Gees, Small Faces and The Kinks, and American superstars such as The Beach Boys, Simon & Garfunkel, The Byrds, The Doors, The Mamas & The Papas and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young.
