I’ve had a ton of interest in my post about the Dancing with the Stars tour. There only about half way through the tour, so you can still get tickets to see some of the best Dancing with the Stars dancers live.
Recently I had someone post a comment about how much they enjoyed the Dancing with the Stars tour visit to Rosemont, IL and I asked her to write a guest post about the experience. Here’s Mary’s description of the Dancing with the Stars tour.
I am Mary and I attended the Dancing with the Stars Live Tour at the Allstate Arena on January 9th, 2009. When I got to the Allstate Arena, I was wearing my ” Maksim” outfit made up of a grey sweat shirt and black sweatpants with Maksim written all over it. I saw one girl with a hot pink poster that said I Love Lance!
My mom, sister, and I went to the tour. My mom bought my sister and I a shirt that cost $30 and my sisters cost $35. We found our section, which was 210. Our tickets were $50 each, which wasn’t bad. I thought that the seats would be ok, but they were pretty good. We saw everything.
The stage was really cool and it was smaller than I thought. The show started 20 minutes late and I was kind of mad. There were commercials and a local dance competition between Chicago couples. That was kind of cool.
Then the show started and each dancer was introduced and all I heard was screaming. I love Maksim and when he was introduced, I screamed so loud! lol The dances were really upbeat and the different kinds of music was amazing. Serious, aggressive, and romantic music. The crowd favored Cheryl Burke, Lance Bass, and Maksim C.
Toni Braxton sang two of her songs and the dancers danced to them. There was a 20 minute break. We walked around and talked to a couple of coppers who we know. The show started again and the dances got even better. The focus was on everyone more than individuals. The final group dance was everything I expected and then I was sad to see it end.
I would definitely rate the DWTS Live Tour a 10, because the dancers were so energetic and the crowd truly enjoyed the experience of seeing them dance live. Afterwords, my mom, sister, and I went downstairs and waited in the back for the dancers and celebities to come out and sign autographs. I thought I recognized Lacey Schwimmer with out her tall heels and her colorful hair extensions, and I said Lacey and she gave me a hug. I asked her to sign an autograph and she said sure, sweetie. Then she took a picture with my sister and I. I said thank you and she gave me another hug. She was so nice and approachable. She was the nicest one! lol
We also saw Lance Bass, Maurice Green, Eytda S. with a robe and boots on, and Alec Mazo. We were waiting to see if Maksim would come out ,but the cops said you guys have to go home. I was so mad, because we paid for tickets and I think that we have a right to wait for the dancer to come out and sign a couple of autographs. It wasn’t worth fighting with cops, so we just left. The tour was amazing and If Maksim is on the next season of DWTS, we will for sure attend the tour again. Amazing show! Great job to all of the dancers and the band was amazing.
Thanks for the writeup Mary. If anyone else has attended the Dancing with the Stars tour, I’d love to have you do a writeup of your experience as well.
