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.

The 2022 tour will take place between 15thJune and 24th July, including a performance at London’s Eventim Apollo on 4th July.

Additional matinée performances will take place at The Octagon Theatre in Yeovil (16thJune), The Wyvern Theatre in Swindon (21stJune), Cliffs Pavilion in Southend (22nd June), The Forum in Billingham (25th June), The Theatre Royal in Norwich (17th July), Symphony Hall in Birmingham (23rd July) and The Theatre Royal in Newcastle (24thJuly).

Here Come The Boys was a complete sell-out when it first toured the UK during the summer of 2019, making it one of the most successful dance shows of that year!

Inevitably, the UK tour for ‘Here Come The Boys’ in both 2020 and 2021 had to be postponed because of the pandemic, but as part of the West End’s return to live theatre Here Come The Boys returned to the stage in May 2021 to enjoy a prestigious and highly acclaimed ten-day residency at The London Palladium.

Now, after three long years, we are delighted to announce a stellar cast for the 2022 tour of Here Come The Boys!

Sicilian-born Graziano Di Prima joined Strictly Come Dancing in 2018 and has since partnered Vick Hope and, most recently, Judi Love. Before Strictly, Graziano made his name as a dancer when he became an Italian Latin Champion and represented Belgium at the World Championships. 

Graziano made his Here Come The Boys debut during the show’s run at the London Palladium in 2021. He said, “The reaction we received during the Here Come The Boys residency in London’s West End last summer was very special. We are so excited to be able to finally bring this very special show to theatres across the rest of the UK and can’t wait to see everybody on tour.” 

Keeping the boys in check on tour will be Ukrainian-Slovenian dance star Nadiya Bychkova, a two-time World Champion and European Champion in Ballroom and Latin ‘10’ Dance. Having made her Strictly Come Dancing debut in 2017, Nadiya’s Strictly partners have included David James, Lee Ryan, Davood Ghadami and Dan Walker. 

Nadiya said, “I’m so happy that we can finally tour the UK with Here Come The Boys. It’s been a long time coming, but me and the boys are going to give audiences a night to remember that will make it worth the wait.”

Nikita Kuzmin makes his Here Come The Boys debut fresh from his highly successful first series of Strictly Come Dancing, where he partnered Tilly Ramsay. 

Before finding fame in the UK with Strictly, Ukrainian-born Nikita and his family moved to Italy when he was nine years-old, where he eventually became a six-time Italian Champion in Latin and Ballroom before joining the German version of Strictly as a professional dancer.

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 and 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.”

As a Strictly professional dancer, Pasha Kovalev’s record of 13 perfect scores remains a Strictly record. He was also the second dancer to reach the finals three times with partners Chelsee Healey, Kimberley Walsh and Caroline Flack. 

Looking ahead to the tour, Pasha said, “Here Come The Boys’ amazing residency at The London Palladium last year gave us a taste of what’s to come this summer for the UK tour. I’m so happy to be performing again with my friends from the Strictly family at so many incredible theatres across the UK. It’s going to be a blast!”

Completing the cast is TV presenter and actor Karim Zeroual, who wowed audiences across the UK when he danced all the way to the Strictly Come Dancing final in 2019 with his pro dance partner Amy Dowden – scoring the first perfect score of the series along the way with their incredible Jive. 

Karim joined the cast of Here Come The Boys in 2021 for the show’s West End run, reminding everyone in the process what an incredible dancer he is.

Karim said, “I’m so excited to be back with the boys, and Nadiya of course, on tour. After seeing the amazing reactions from the audience when we performed in the West End at the Palladium I just can’t wait to bring that impact and energy to crowds all over the UK. Dancing has had a massive impact on my life. If it wasn’t for Strictly I wouldn’t have opportunities like this. To tour an incredible dance show with unbelievably talented people is a dream come true!”

From the producers of the smash hit dance shows Rip it Up and the “Remembering” series of shows starring Aljaž Škorjanec & JanetteManrara, Here Come The Boys is directed and choreographed by Gareth Walker.
