    It's gonna be a wonderful show again! Happy to see Dennis's show's being held every year. I'm thrilled. With Google translator I confirmed Mao's name first on the list. It'll be her first appearance after the break.(Mao canceled events in May except for this show to consider her future.) Nice to see Mirai is on the cast. Good for her. Maybe it's because she used to be his rink mate(this show's name is Dennis Ten & Friends.;)) A bit surprised to see Daisuke on the cast. It may be his first appearance in shows after the injury so far. Also Evan's name is a bit surprising. Love to see his skating. Thank you for the info, reut.

    Thank you, reut. That's great - I'd say Denis has an even better cast on his show this year than 'All That Skate' and 'Artistry on Ice' ;) :).

    Always happy to see Elladj invited to skate in a special show. Helps with training fees and public awareness. He is already in great demand around the world for his exhibition numbers. I hope soon his intro will include the word "medallist".

    Any news on when and where the tickets go on sale?

    This appears to have the ticket info, although I can't read (or google translate since it's an image):
    http://denisten.kz/show/#tickets

    The show link is from Denis Ten's twitter.

    This is from the last year, as the dates are different.

    But I went to the sites mentioned there.
    For Almaty: http://zakazbiletov.kz/events/view/24183 ("no tickets" is written there at the moment, I guess they will appear later)

    Oops, thanks for clarifying. Denis said on his twitter that tickets would go on sale "early May" so I'd guess any day now. It's probably best to keep an eye on his twitter if you're interested.

    Lysacek will be travelling all the way to Almaty for Denis' show? Wow, I would have never thought.

    Unbelievable cast with two Olympic champions and so many World champions and Olympic medalists. Almost unreal.

    Yeah, I noticed that site too. A Japanese company is preparing for providing tours to Kazakhstan. It'll be helpful for them if the show organizer announces the ticketing information ASAP. Also, Dennis, make a call to TV stations such as J-sports and TV Tokyo. They'll buy TV rights of your show. It'll be helpful for me since I don't have time and money to visit Kazakhstan. ;)

    I'm not surprised, it's a great show and didn't they train together for a while?

    There are three Olympic champions in the cast, not two - Lysacek, T/M and V/T (who are double gold medalists, of course).

    Come to think if it... their common link is Frank and Lori. That probably explains it? Indeed, a great no. of medalists. Would be a great show.

    Denis seems to be financially very well. Cast tops even Yuna.

    They are training mates, so of course Lysacek will support Denis´ show. What a fantastic cast, rarely seen soooo many skaters with important titles in the same show. Hopefully there will be video clips....

    I love to see skaters expanding the reach of live skating shows, Kudos to Denis for going through the effort to put on live shows in Kazakhstan, and what an amazing cast!

    I thought that if Lysacek would want to come back to the ice, he would surely join US Stars on Ice - not necessarily doing the whole tour if we think that he had some health issues but definitely being a guest star in one or two of the SOI shows. So yes, I admit I am surprised he is not there but is here. If someone had asked which skaters do you think Denis will invite to his event, I don't know how many of us would have listed Evan as a possibility even though he and Ten were training mates under Carroll and Evan became Denis' idol/role model after he changed coaches and moved to Frank like four years ago.

    Evan is not entered on the cast list of any other production from what I can tell, whether US, Korea, China or Japan. But maybe I missed his name like I somehow didn't see Volosozhar/Trankov for Denis & Friends earlier today. lol Thanks for the correction, Zemgirl.:)

    Maybe Lysacek was not ready to commit after his injury as those shows were planned? I believe that he is also appearing in two Sun Valley shows in coming summer. Maybe he just starts very gradually which is a wise decision, IMO.

    Here's the official site. http://denisten.kz/show/
    Who is the secret guest? The silhouette looks like Yagudin but I can be wrong.

    Thanks rosewood! Secret guest probably is Yagudin, it sure looks like him. Also his wife Tatiana Tomianina will be skating with her partner Maxim in the same show
