    It's my understanding that Johnny will do the both shows in Russia, but won't do Sweden, but will join back for the rest of the tour.

    I know Plushenko and Lambiel are doing the full tour, and S&S so far are doing all the tour except Russia.

    The full cast changes depending on the country or city they are, the cast for the Russian shows has been announced:

    Evgeni Plushenko,
    Stephane Lambiel,
    Johnny Weir,
    Dennis Ten,
    Jason GRAETZ,
    Fleur Maxwell,
    Alena Leonova,
    Ksenia Makarova,
    Elizabeth Tuktamysheva,
    Adelina Sotnikova,
    Yuko Kawaguchi - Alexander Smirnov,
    Maria Mukhortova - Maxim Trankov,
    Tatiana Volosozhar - Stanislav Morozov,
    Meryl Davis - Charlie White, (I'm pretty sure I've read they are doing the full tour as well)
    Sergei Yakimenko,
    Elena and Alexander Chesney,
    Fiona Zaldua - Dmitry Sukhanov,
    Alexei Polishchuk - Bert Kordin,
    Violetta Afanasyev and Peter Duck.

    And in Sweden, it would be as well Kristoffer Berntsson, Adrian Schultheiss and Viktoria Helgesson.

    I can imagine that in the shows in the Czech Republic Brezina and Tomas will appear, but I don't know for sure about that.

    They are scheduled to do the Ice Chips shows in Boston that same weekend. My guess is this press release is wrong. Perhaps D/W are doing the first few shows and then coming back to the U.S. for Ice Chips and then SOI. Or maybe they are doing the first week of SOI, then Ice Chips, and then joining this tour.

    The show in Sweden is World's Best on Ice, not Kings on Ice.

    Not that I know of, at least not with Plushenko on since he has two surgeries scheduled as soon as these dates are over.

    "Kings on Ice" :lol: ...stupid name, glad to hear it is not used at some of the stops.

    Fantastic headliners.

    But:

    Violetta Afanasyev and Peter Duck = :scream:

    And Eddie Marton = :lynch:

    The shows they're contracted to do aren't listed yet, so it's possible they're just doing a few as guest skaters.

    ETA: Meryl just tweeted about being eager to tour with Jeremy Abbott (aka Jerber), which suggests they will be on the tour.

    I think it's supposed to be like Kings of the Dance, the ballet equivalent, whose cast this year was :swoon:

    Thanks for the info.

    I'd be really interested if anyone reads anything about further dates for the tour (even if Plushenko is not to be there). Cheers

    If Plushenko, Weir and S&S all plan to compete at Worlds and then skate at the tour immediately afterwards, why isn't Lambiel? :drama:

    So sad that this starts 2 days after I leave Europe :( I would have actually flown to St. Petersburg or Moscow to see this!

    I bought tickets to the show in Moscow. ;)

    Too bad Aliona and Robin aren't coming to Russia, but I understand they'll probably need a break after Worlds. :(

    Michal told he was invited to the whole tour. I think Tomas would not be doing it.

    According to Brian Joubert's forum, he will do both shows in Russia on March 30 and 31st

    So that's Plushenko, Lambiel, Joubert and Weir...wow...lucky Russians

    Not many top ladies are in the show!! Where is Yuna, Mao, Marai, Laura, Miki, Rachael, Sarah M, Kirra?? I though for sure they will at least include the euro champs like Carolina or Laura L.

    It's not like the previous Kings on Ice had top ladies from the current field. Irina Slutskaya and Surya Bonaly were the headliner ladies in 2008.

    They are rivals, but not enemies. And they are quad-mates.:D

    Plushenko, Lambiel, Joubert, Weir....awesome!:swoon:
    I'm sure they will see Japanese fans in the audience.:D
    Each one of them has huge fan base in Japan and there are fans who wouldn't mind flying to Russia or Europe to see their favorites.:)

    You are poking fun at them, aren't you?:rolleyes: According to some media reports, they hate each other. That is why I am surprised to learn that Brian joined Plushenko's shows.

    Does this mean that Plushenko won't be performing in St. Petersburg, Moscow, or Stockholm? Or does it mean that he'll show up and not attempt any quads? :watch:

    I have no idea. But if his doctors really advised him to rest for two weeks, then he shouldn't be doing shows, regardless of whether he was going to do a quad.

    well it is not first time someone skates in a show injured and Plushenko has long history of skating with a bad knee and hip. I m sure they wont cancel the tour. It is different than going to Worlds.
    He was doing quad and triple axels in AOI tour the previous week, maybe that got him.
    Stephane also jumped amazing quad there.
