    Here's the website of Fantasy on Ice.
    http://www.fukui-tv.co.jp/event/fantasy_ice/top.html

    I've never been to this show, but although it is held in a local city (sorry, Fukui people) it usually has a great line-up including guest skaters such as Lambiel (almost a regular guest of CIC shows) , Weir, Joubert and Anissina/Peizerat and some musicians and entertainers. It's got quite a good reputation as a show and it always surprises me by the high ticket prices JYE 22,000 - JYE 9,000.:eek:

    I nearly hate the FaOI shows - - It always have no videos,no photos,no news...just some local tv news clip,never longer than two minutes- -+
    btw,Antonio Najarro wrote on his FB he'll be the choreographer for the show.

    someone said according to short reports on jp site,Miki's new SP is LAWRENCE OF ARABIA and Tatsuki's is a very "unique" music,both choreoed by Lambiel and look good.hope we can see some news clips as before.
    and Lambiel is very popular there,there're about 4-5 bouquets and balloons there for him .

    Johnny tweeted that he did triple axles in both his numbers and practiced his quads prior to the show


    10h Johnny Weir-Voronov ‏@JohnnyGWeir
    There's no feeling like a quad jump first thing in the morning...



    3h Johnny Weir-Voronov ‏@JohnnyGWeir
    Save the best for last! A great show today, triple axels in both numbers! Thank you Fukui and Japan. You inspire me so much!

    Looks like Nobunara Oda also skated. Would love to hear how the show went. He's been jumping really well this summer.

    I wonder if this is Akiko's new LP dress..? (Re: photo above). Here's another photo with Akiko and Nobunari striking the same pose, but in practice outfits and on the ice:

    I just discovered some clips from Johnny's (seemingly) new EX from Fantasy on Ice:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?list=ULAeYfpeTbfsc&v=AeYfpeTbfsc&feature=player_detailpage#t=15s
    OMG the costume! :wideeyes: And is he slapping himself on the buttocks while doing the camel spin..? :cold: :yikes: :lol:

    The same user has a few other short FOI news clips. Brian's jumps look good!

    they all are promo videos and old. There isn't new news from this show.
