    The website says tickets will be available on Jan13th.
    Anyone knows when the early bird tickets will be available? I used to get advance notice but havent received anything yet.

    There is a note (a tweet?) that I saw on the website that refers to an internet presale beginning today. I know nothing more but I always prefer buying over the phone when I can choose my seating rather than the way it's handled on the internet.

    I believe it was stars - or so I was told. DD did the booking.

    Habs,
    I sincerely hope we get to see Patrick Chan on SOI. He is absolutely mesmerizing.
    Last year we went to see the Central Ontario awards and saw Patrick skate a couple of times from on ice seats.
    It was great.

    I used "Kurt" as the password for Edmonton and "Stars" for Calgary. "Iceshow" is supposed to be the password for Vancouver - will find out if that's right in 10 minutes LOL.

    Kurt works in Vancouver too - I'll bet Stars or Kurt works pretty much everywhere :lol:

    The email I just received for Vancouver says "STARS", so it does look universal.

    Are there really only five participants (Browning, Rochette, Sawyer, Buttle, and Virtue/Moir) confirmed for the show?
    For the prices SOI is charging, I would want to know more about who else will be participating. Although Kurt being director and choreographer might make the show worth seeing.

    My guess is that other skaters will be added to the tour, following the results of Canadians & Worlds.

    It's been a very small cast for the last few years now. For some reason either international skaters just aren't interested or the Cdn SOI can't afford anyone outside this group. If I get free tickets I'll go but I don't pay for it anymore.

    Actually the cast was quite big last year - we also had Lysacek, Sasha Cohen, B&A, Sale and Pelletier besides the current suspects. Unfortunately we didnt see Virtue & Moir last year so looking forward to seeing them this year.

    Yes, I was guessing that too, but my point was that I'm not really willing to pay for tickets now without knowing who these additional skaters are.
    Especially if they are going to do the same exhibition routines that by that point I will have seen several times already......

    Virtue & Moir couldn't do the first half of the tour because Worlds was moved to a date that conflicted with CSOI. They did do the second half however, and we also got to see Taka Kazuko in Vancouver. :)

    Stars has always had a small cast - this is normal for the show. They announce the core cast when tickets go on sale than add the rest of the skaters later based upon results and availability. We likely won't know the final casting until Worlds. In recent years skaters like Miki Ando, Stephane Lambiel and Taka Kozuka have all appeared as guests.

    Going again this year to Vancouver SOI! I'm glad Virtue/Moir will be there, and Kurt too. Hoping if there's a M&G it will be later on in the afternoon, as I'm in a certain program in university and can't skip on class!

    I love Jeremy. Good for him. I still don't understand why Patrick doesn't do SOI. It can't be because they don't ask him......

    Nothing on the official website yet, but Weaver/Poje's twitter --

    I was wondering what other pairs/dance team they'd sign on to the tour...

    I've been hoping they might be added as well. We'll soon see.

    I bought really good tickets this year (thinking that you never know how much longer Kurt will be touring), and the cast (already great) just keeps getting better. :D

    Me too. This is one of those times I wish I were Canadian or had the money to travel up there for one of the shows.

    I was already going to buy tickets, but this just made my day. :D I'm really looking forward to V/M and W/P doing group numbers together. That should be awesome.
