    There are some other companies which sell tickets of The Ice Tour. See the bottom of the sites(of each show) I posted here. PS: This tour is so popular so it's kinda hard to get tickets.

    Thanks, rosewood. It's good to hear Patrick will have more show opportunities.

    I have a question. The ICE has a large cast. I guess the skaters do only one program per show, even though they have prepared two programs. Do they announce beforehand which program they will skate for each show? Or is there any rule on which program will be shown?

    ^One program per one show from a skater aside from group numbers. They don't announce the numbers before the shows. It depends on the skaters; some skaters show different number in different show so that people who see multiple shows can see various numbers, of course there are skaters who skate one particular number all through the tour, i.e. Mao usually show her new program all through the tour.

    Aside from individual programs, The Ice usually have opening number, men's group number, ladies group number, talk show in which a few skaters appear in each show(different skaters in different show), dance battle(or spin battle, or whatever battle), and ending number(dancing with audience). So you may enjoy some amusing performances from Patrick, seabm7.

    Meryl & Charlie are gonna be choreographing ladies' group number. I'm so excited.
    https://twitter.com/ctveventkawa/sta...03016542474240
    【会見では発表しませんでしたが】
    女子グループナンバーはメリル・デイビス&チャーリー・ホワイトが振り付けの予定です。楽しみ ですね♪♪♪
    One of the reasons why The Ice is popular in Japan is Jeffery choreographs some of the group numbers every year and his choreos are challenging and fantastic. I'm expecting wonderful choreos from them too. Go Meryl & Charlie!

    The Ice has its own official channel on youtube. you can see last year's all numbers here.

    ^Thanks, reut. They made a debut of their new competitive programs in THE ICE last year too. I'm excited about seeing their new season's long programs! I'm also looking forward to seeing ladies group number choreographed by D/W, and men's group number and opening number by Jeff. A group number done by D/W is something new in THE ICE. And the last year's men's group number done by Jeff was exquisite.

    ^I don't know why, but they do it every year. So, anyone who wants to see the videos of THE ICE 2013 needs to see them before Chukyo TV updates their videos of THE ICE 2014.

    Chukyo TV https://twitter.com/ctveventkawa
    Fuji TV https://twitter.com/TheICE2014?origi...10633382404097

    They both have their own official site for THE ICE as well.

    Chukyo TV tweeted that Meryl and Charlie will demonstrate how to dance in this year's finale number.(Every year the crowd dance with the cast.

    Chukyo TV posted a tip of this year's show--a purple shirt.

    On 14th Chukyo TV tweeted that Akiko Suzuki will work as a commentator. And she appeared on a preview show on Chukyo TV a couple of days ago. Thanks to the dailymotion user. http://www.dailymotion.com/hana02014 Akiko talked about various things during the show such as Sochi Olympics, her life after the retirement, and THE ICE etc. And she said she'd love to appear on the ShibShib's video if they film another one during this year's THE ICE.


    Fuji TV just tweeted that they'll post the preview video of the Nagano show tomorrow on their official site. https://twitter.com/TheICE2014/statu...40679055237120

    According to Fuji TV's official site, Mai Asada will work as a reporter and Yuka Sato as a commentator on their TV show which is going to be aired on the 21st.
