    I have a hard time believing that Marie-France and Patrice will be there, just due to the fact they've announced they're expecting. That news is in the Battle of the Blades thread.

    I'm just sayin...

    I think the baby is actually due sometime in December so it's very unlikely they will be skating lol!

    CBC's holiday schedule is up, and HFOI will air on Tues. Dec 14 at 9:00 pm (1 hour), and repeat Christmas Day at 5:00 pm.

    Cast list given at the ticket sites says Joannie Rochette, Kurt Browning, Jamie Sale & David Pelletier, Jeffrey Buttle, and Steven Cousins.

    All three dates are listed on his website as one of his upcomming shows, unless something has changed.

    That's it? Just 3 cities in the interior of BC? What about the rest of us?

    I googled a bit, and it appears that they chose BC because it was the home province of the 2010 Olympics.

    Well, HFOI used to only be a one-off show. It's only in the last couple years that they've had 2-4 shows.

    I only tracked the years Kurt was in it, but historically:
    2002 - Kitchener, ON
    2003 - Toronto, ON
    2004 - Kelowna, BC
    2005 - Victoria, BC
    2006 - Prince George, BC
    2008 - Halifax, NS and Oshawa, ON
    2009 - Abbotsford, BC, Penticton, BC, Dawson's Creek, BC, Lethbridge, AB

    So this year has only one less city than last year, and it's only sporadically gone to the larger cities.

    Ashley Wagner tweeted the other day that she's in this show. Any FSUers attend, or will attend, who can share some impressions/highlights?

    I heard Jeff skated to Glenn Gould and it was very moving.

    In 2007 it was back in kelowna and I believe it toured to a couple cities too but I'm not 100% sure. I think it went to Cranbrook and Vernon...

    It was pretty good. It always amazes me how Kurt continues to push what he can do. He's so incredibly creative.

    I was actually impressed with Sale & Pelletier as well. I've kind of thought that lately they've been doing a half-ass job but their programs were actually kind of creative and they look like they're enjoying skating which I haven't really got from them for awhile.

    Shawn's Muse program was also pretty amazing. I love the way that guy moves when he's not competing.
