The TCB Group and concert promoters TEG MJR have announced that Strictly Come Dancing’s Nikita Kuzmin will join fellow Strictly stars Graziano Di Prima, Nadiya Bychkova, Pasha Kovalev, and Strictly finalist Karim Zeroual for a 28-date UK tour in 2022 of the critically acclaimed West End smash hit show Here Come The Boys.
Graziano, Nadiya, Nikita, Pasha, and Karim will be joined by a spectacular cast of dancers, all backed by a huge LED screen and a lavish production.
With more dates to be announced shortly, the 2022 tour will take place between 15th June and 24th July, including a performance at London’s Eventim Apollo on 4th July.
Nikita is the latest heart-throb to join Strictly Come Dancing. Originally from the Ukraine, he moved to Italy when he was nine, before moving to Germany when he was 18. Before joining Strictly, he was a professional dancer on Germany’s version of Strictly. He is also the holder of six Italian Championship titles.
On joining the cast of Here Come The Boys, Nikita said, “I had heard all about this show from some of my fellow Strictly professionals. I cannot wait to be part of it. From what I’ve heard, the energy and excitement created on stage is electric, and I cannot wait to visit different parts of the UK with such an impressive production.”
Here Come The Boys was a complete sell-out when it first toured the UK during the summer of 2019, making it the unquestionable smash-hit success of all the year’s dance shows.
Inevitably, the UK tour for Here Come The Boys in both 2020 and 2021 had to be postponed following government advice and the closure of venues across the UK as part of the nationwide effort to combat the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19),
But as part of the West End’s return to live theatre, in May this year Here Come The Boys returned to the stage to enjoy a prestigious and highly acclaimed ten-day residency at The London Palladium.
From the producers of the smash hit dance shows Rip it Up and the Remembering series of shows starring Aljaž Škorjanec & Janette Manrara, Here Come The Boys is directed and choreographed by Gareth Walker.
The show will come to the Bonus Arena in Hull on June 29th and The Barbican in York on 2nd July 2022.
