Dancing with the Stars


Now might be a good time to hire a traveling medic (or seven) for the Dancing With the Stars roadie crew.

The stars and pros of the ABC juggernaut are gearing up to hit the streets for their fourth national outing, with the 38-city Dancing With the Stars—The Tour set to kick off in San Diego Dec. 17.

Contenders from current and previous seasons are on board, including Lance Bass and Toni Braxton, no strangers to arena-sized treks, Maurice Greene and Marlee Matlin.

It's unclear if more stars will be added to the lineup, but notably absent is this season's breakout water-cooler star, for better or worse, Cloris Leachman. Fortunately for would-be ticket holders, and thanks primarily to Quentin Tarantino, she is otherwise professionally engaged.

Joining the celebs are some of the most popular pro dancers, including dynamic duo Mark Ballas and Derek Hough, who will no doubt be simultaneously recording their forthcoming debut album while on the road, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Kym Johnson, Lacey Schwimmer, who this year is partnered with Bass, Karina Smirnoff and Fabian Sanchez.

The traveling trotters will hot-step their way through Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Dallas, Washington, D.C., Toronto, Nashville and Tampa, before wrapping up the tour in Philadelphia on Feb. 8…just in time to get in a little rest before the spring installment of Dancing With the Stars kicks off.

Tickets for the tour will go on sale Nov. 10 and are available through DancingWithTheStarsOnTour.com.
