The Thank You Canada tour!

This is where we discuss figure skating and skating related items. How did you favourite skaters perform, and so on? However we never speculate on the private lives of skaters, like who might be going out with whom, because that is poison and is not tolerated here. A good guideline is that if it's not publicly announced, in the papers etc. then it's probably best to leave it alone. Is it a gray area? Then write to me and ask.

The Thank You Canada tour!

Post by Elizabeth » Tue Jun 05, 2018 2:46 pm

Reminiscent of the days of the Skate the Nation tour that visited smaller centres across Canada, a new tour has been put together to cross the country in October-November of this year.

The quote below is from the home page of the tour. See the dates and locations here: https://thethankyoucanadatour.ca/
Canada has produced the most talented figure skaters in the history of the sport with household names like Virtue, Moir, Chan, Osmond, Stojko and more who have reached the pinnacle of the sport in the Canadian Nationals, World Titles and Olympic Games. As a ‘thank you’ to their home country, these Canadian greats will embark on The Thank You Canada Tour, presented by Round Room this fall.

"When we tackle a project, we want to be all in. That level of investment is critical for us, and we know it's when we produce our best work. Putting together a skating show that feels fresh, vibrant, and different is an incredible challenge we are fully embracing, and we're committed to ensuring audiences get a spectacular show,” says Tessa Virtue & Scott Moir

“I feel as if our careers are just beginning. We’re joining forces to bring a new show to all Canadians. There are so many amazing people across Canada who have supported this group, we wanted to thank them all. We are going to do just that,” adds Patrick Chan.

The 2018 tour cast features five-time Olympic Medalists, three-time World Champions and eight-time National Champions Tessa Virtue & Scott Moir; three-time Olympic Medalist, three-time World Champion, and ten-time National Champion Patrick Chan; three-time Olympic Medalist, four-time World Medalist, seven-time National Champions Meagan Duhamel & Eric Radford; three-time Olympic Medalist, three-time National Champion, World Champion Kaetlyn Osmond; and two-time Olympic Medalist, three-time World Champion, and seven-time National Champion Elvis Stojko and many more!
Kaetlyn's participation in this tour is obviously why she is not available for the GP series this fall.

Unfortunately it's not coming here, but it IS where my family lives and as luck would have it I should be there at the time as my sister's birthday is on the 18th of October.

Well, I had to do it then. I didn't get perfect seats, but pretty good I guess. I was somewhat disappointed, but they were definitely flying off the site. However we'll be in the 5th row which isn't too shabby. My sister and I are going together and so that will be really nice.
