    absolutely fantastic line-up! I think last spring's show was named Festa On Ice. Is that change related to her changing agencies?!!! I love this name more! All That Skate Spring, All That Skate Summer, All that Skate LA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Anyway, Katia?!!!! I think I've heard somewhere that last year, Ilia was sooooo thrilled about Yuna's spring show he was in, that he told Katia that she has to come together, and it became true XDXD

    omg. I just counted, there are five OGMedalists here!!! (gordeeva has two :))

    really, really unbelievably amazing cast!
    Worlds, and after that this show! I just can't wait! I can't!!!!

    What an exciting news!!

    Yuna, Gordeeva and Czisny... wow.. that's as beautiful as it gets.

    And Kulik/Lambiel/Joubert/Abbott!! Just so much all-around hotness here that will really melt the ice!

    I just pray that the ISU announces the schedule for the Worlds tomorrow, so that Yuna can participate at the Worlds as well as do this show. Her recent practice videos/photos are absolutely stunning, and I can't wait to see her new programs.

    From this morning's Korea Herald online:

    Former Olympic gold medalists and world champions will join South Korean figure skater Kim Yu-na for an ice show here in May, Kim’s agency announced Thursday.

    All That Sports unveiled a list of skaters who will perform alongside Kim, the reigning Olympic gold medalist in ladies’ singles figure skating. The ice show is scheduled for May 6-8 at the Jamsil Indoor Gymnasium in southern Seoul.

    Two-time Olympic pairs champion Ekaterina Gordeeva of Russia headlines the list. Her husband, Ilia Kulik, the 1998 men’s singles champion, will also be here.

    Stephane Lambiel, the 2006 Olympic silver medalist, and Brian Joubert, the 2007 world champion, will be back for another ice show with Kim, after skating with the South Korean in a show last year.

    Alissa Czisny, the reigning Grand Prix Final champ from the U.S., will also be here.

    Among pairs, the 2010 Olympic champions Shen Xue and Zhao Hongbo of China will be joined by their compatriots Zhang Dan and Zhang Hao.

    Kwak Min-jung, who won bronze at the Asian Winter Games last month, and 14-year-old prospect Kim Hae-jin are other South Korean participants.

    The schedule for the ice show remains up in the air. Kim was scheduled to have competed at the 2011 World Figure Skating Championships in Tokyo this week but the event has been postponed indefinitely following a devastating earthquake in Japan earlier this month.

    The International Skating Union has received bids from six countries to replace Japan as the host and it could set new dates in late April or early May. (Yonhap News)

    With the new 2011 Worlds dates now set (April 25-May 1), hopefully this means Yu-Na will be able to compete in Moscow and then go straight home to prepare and perform in her show?

    Hopefully. Majority of her fans are hoping that the Pyeongchang committee will somehow advice Yuna to focus back on her training this time.

    very glad to see gordeeva in particular on the cast list :) i had hoped so since kulik was such a huge huge hit at the previous ATS.

    I think Yuna recently mentioned that they're planning to have another ice show in LA this August. Michelle will probably be there.

    Wow, that's going to be pretty tight timing considering the announcement of the re-scheduled World's in Moscow. I wonder if that will have an impact on the show. Or Yuna Kim's plan to compete at World's.

    Given the type of person Yuna is, I think Yuna will suck it up and do the Worlds, come back to Korea on May 2, and do the ice show from May 6~8. It will be tiring, but the most wonderful thing for the fans. Anyway, Yuna's agency will announce her plans today. *crosses fingers*

    The ISU has reviewed all applications received and after careful evaluation the ISU Council decided to allot the Championships to the Figure Skating Federation of Russia, to be held in the Megasport Arena in Moscow/Russia, on April 24-May 1, 2011.

    <http://www.isu.org/vsite/vcontent/content/transnews/0,10869,4844-128590-19728-18885-312988-3787-4771-layout160-129898-news-item,00.html>

    Ms Kim and Ms Czisny, and perhaps others, will have suddenly a lot of preparation to do!

    wow the price fro Kiss & Cry seats are not cheap;) but if the show offers that much fun and various benefits like before-the-show thingy as it did in LA, it'll be totally worth it I guess:)
    that poster with rock 'n roll style going on does look tempting though.

    thanks Runnershigh!

    Yuna just confirmed that she will be performing a new gala at the show, which is Beyonce's "Fever". David Wilson calls it "very sensual and chic" and Peter describes it as "highly alluring".

    Can't wait~! :)

    Cool..
    doesn't it look also as an homage to her skating forum "Fevers"? :p
