In 2018, Strictly Come Dancing pro couple Kevin and Karen Clifton will be hitting the road once again with their second UK tour which promises to be even bigger and better with more dates and venues confirmed. Following the huge, sell-out success of Kevin and Karen Dance 2017, and the much loved, headline duo will be back once again for a sensational edge-of-your-seat show which will tour to 37 venues across UK and Ireland. It’s a high energy performance filled with sassy tunes, sparkling costumes and compelling storytelling. With heart-pounding choreography, a supporting cast of dancers and a live 12-piece show band, this new show for 2018 will leave you breathless.

Kevin and Karen Dance 2018 is set to dazzle audiences with their remarkable on-stage chemistry, alluring and passionate routines and unique style of ballroom magic which pushes the boundaries of Ballroom and Latin Chorography to the limit. For Kevin and Karen landing their second tour is a dream come true:

We’ve been working for such a long time to get our own tour off the ground and we didn’t know how the first one was going to be received, and much to our delight it went better than we could have dreamed of! We were so overwhelmed by all the messages we received from people asking us to come to parts of the country that we weren’t able to on our 2017 tour, so we are thrilled that our 2018 tour is taking in more dates and more venues around the country. Doing our own tour is a dream come true and we can’t wait to come back with something totally new and exciting.
