    Denis Ten ( @Tenis_Den ) tweeted today:
    "Btw, we opened official website of the show - http://denisten.kz/show, everyone is saying it looks fabulous. What about you? ;)"

    Shows in Kazakhstan are May 24 in Almaty and May 25 in Astana.

    Scheduled to appear: Lambiel, Kostner, Joubert, Slutskaya, Duhamel/Radford, Verner, Zaldua & Sukhanov (adagio pair), Zhiganshina/Gazsi, Besedin & Polishchuk (male ice acrobats).

    Denis Ten also just debuted new show programs in Nagoya, Japan, tweeting: "One of them was made on Kazakh music. And I'm so glad that the audience enjoyed my performance!
    You've got a great opportunity to see it live at 18:30 in Sport Palace of Baluan Sholak :) I will skate for You with live musicians!"

    great cast. good for him and especially good for Kazakhstan! he's really doing a good job of popularizing figure skating in his home country.
    and if I'm right, 1000 KZT is about $6, best tickets cost about $27 :)

    I'm going and really looking forward to it. Denis tweeted today that the show in Almaty is almost sold out. I also heard from Tatiana Totmianina that she and Maxim Marinin will perform as well.

    Good for Denis! The cast sounds great and I hope the shows are a big success. I love that he has the opportunity to have this platform.

    Yes, Duhamel/Radford were intended to perform, but now they are replaced with Totmianina/Marinin.

    They could totally clean up at Eurovision looking like that. They'd just need to decide which country to represent.

    Reports and photos from today's press conference. Nothing especially new in the quotes: Denis dreamt to invite all those stars to his country for quite some time and he is glad he can finally do this. Guests are charmed by the hospitality and the attention, didn't expect figure skating is so popular in Kazakhstan.

    Alex Gazsi (ice dancer with Nelli Zhiganshina) didn't have his suitcase with his skates, but apparently received it this morning. Yesterday there was an official dinner with the deputy mayor. The skaters are treated like royals. :)

    It was a great show last night with many beautiful performances and live music performed by Kazakh artists. The skaters, artists and crew then took a plane to Astana after the show.

    It really must have been a great night, Denis Ten tweeted and thanked the audience for 17 minutes of standing ovation :eek:

    Hopefully there will be more videos soon :)

    Joubert has been completely charmed by Yagudin. What did the guy do to him?

    The show in Astana was also great. I was told there were 9,000 people. The speed skating oval is not the best venue with the spectators being rather far away from the ice but they did have extra tribunes and VIP-tables closer to the ice, too. At the end, a lot of fans came down and I think they almost would have ovrrun the ice if the security hadn't stopped them. Denis Ten and Kazakhstan have been a great host for the show and all skaters really enjoyed it.

    I doubt he had that many options to pick from (if at all), considering this was live music.

    Both shows look fantastic and I hope Denis Ten's success will be good for skating in Kazakhstan. Will either show be shown on TV? I'd love to see better quality videos.
