Strictly Come Dancing star Anton Du Beke and Erin Boag announce a spectacular new show ‘Swing Time’, embarking on a major tour of the UK next year.

Sadly there is no date scheduled for Blackpool - the home of ballroom dancing in the UK.

But Anton and Erin will be performing in Manchester and Liverpool, it has been announced.

As part of the Strictly team, Anton visits the resort each year during the final rounds of the competition.

Swing Time promises a wonderful performance of music, song and dance delivered with aplomb by the nation’s favourite ballroom couple and a fantastic supporting cast including vocalist Lance Ellington, six world-class ensemble dancers and the 25-piece London Concert Orchestra conducted by Richard Balcombe.

The production will feature sensational new choreography and sparkling costumes set to a musical backdrop of timeless classics such as ‘I Could Have Danced All Night’, ‘I Got Rhythm’, ‘Moondance’, ‘I’ve Got The World On A String’, ‘Guys And Dolls’ and ‘Le Jazz Hot’. The show will also feature a question and answer section.

The show is at Liverpool’s Philharmonic on February 4 and Manchester’s Bridge Water Hall on February 25.
