Expect A Smaller, More Intimate Feel To The DWTS Live Tour – New Melissa Rycroft Interview, Watch ET Tonight
US Weekly interviewed Melissa Rycroft about the new Dancing With The Stars Live Tour. Not only is she hosting, but, she is also dancing. She also gives a few hints of what to expect of her performances, costumes, and the show. Read on….
Rycroft won’t just be hosting, either. The former Bachelor contestant teased that she’ll be wearing many hats – or jazz shoes – during the tour. “I will be dancing. Not sure if I’m doing partner dances or a couple of group dances, but I’m doing at least three numbers as well as hosting,” she said.
“Now instead of being anxious I’m looking forward to it! It’s going to be chaos!” she joked. “Living like a rockstar on a bus? I mean, it’s pretty cool.”
The most exciting part of the Dancing With the Stars: Live! Tour for Rycroft is seeing all of the show’s fans.
“I’m looking forward to the Q&A’s and the meet and greets and connecting with the audience – it’s the fans who really keep this tour going,” she said. “I think it’s going to be fun to see them interact with everyone!”
Despite the glitzy costumes and big dance numbers, Rycroft said to expect a smaller, more intimate feel for the performances.
“This [tour] brings the live show to you and makes it more personal,” she explained. “It’s a really cool experience.”
