    I didn't want to start a new thread in GSD without additional corroboration, so I cross-posted it in the OES News thread (a.k.a. ISR news thread ;)) so as not to derail this one: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/sho...14-15-Season&p=4286777&viewfull=1#post4286777

    :rofl: How did this end up in the cornfields of Bloomington, IL?

    Still what a cool cast, and it's a two hour drive for me. I'll see what the ticket prices are like before deciding. Wish it wasn't on a Tuesday though.

    ETA: Never mind I see the prices in the first post. $45-75, not too terrible.

    ETA2: This is at the U.S. Cellular Coliseum, which is kind of ironic since U.S. Cellular sold all their midwest markets to Sprint last year. :lol:

    That's what you call a cast! Nice to see Dubreuil & Lauzon, Anisinna & Peizerat & the Kerr's all included.

    Great cast! And interesting artistic director and choreographer. This show may be quite different from the typical Disson show.

    I know that the Disson shows always are on tv on weekend afternoons, but I was kind of hoping that this one might make ABC prime time considering that Meryl won Dancing With the Stars with Maks and Charlie was on there with Sharna. Oh, well.

    A whole show devoted just to ice dance! 10 years ago, who would have ever thought this would happen in the U.S.? Should be a great event, and I can't wait to see Meryl and Maks again.

    Surprised no Chock/Bates, since Evan and Charlie are such good friends and one of Igor's other teams is listed. I wonder if they are among the "to be added" skaters or if they are all business this year. Maybe they figure if the Shibutani's aren't taking time out for this they shouldn't either. (Then again, the Shibs may be "to be added" skaters, too.)

    Anyone else thinking Tobias & new partner look a bit out of their depth in this cast? I wonder how they got this gig.

    Do we know if the second TV air date will be simply a repeat, or if they are showing the special in two parts?

    This show is two days after the Grand Prix final, which will be in Spain. Tobias/Tkachenko don't even have any GP events at this time, so it shouldn't be as difficult for them to be here.

    I would assume a repeat, since that is what they usually do.

    I'm looking forward to seeing these teams from the past again. What are Gregory/Petchukov doing now? I thought they we're show skating.

    I really wanted to see this show live, but it's just not going to work out. I just checked the Ticketmaster page out of curiosity and it looks like ticket sales are going well, so maybe Disson will do something like this again, in a larger/more well-traveled city next time. Hey, I can dream. ;)

    Hope everyone going has a great time!
