Starting this thread now because Johnny Weir's Instagram story yesterday mentioned that tickets were selling fast for his last planned appearance at the Skating Club of Wilmington's Annual Spring Ice Show in Delaware on Friday, March 31, and Saturday, April 1, 2023, at 7 pm:
One of his new numbers is to Debussy's "Clair de Lune."

Tickets are on sale now for the Skating Club of Boston's ICE CHIPS -- with special guest star Nathan Chen -- at the Tenley E. Albright Performance Center rink on Friday, April 7 at 7 pm and Saturday, April 8 at 1 pm & 7 pm (a separate thread for this show can be created closer to the event if there's interest):

This thread is not limited to U.S. club hosted shows - Canadians and others, feel free to publicize your local shows, too!

Ice Chips still hasn’t sold out. I’m surprised as we have a lot of Chen ubers in the area.

Connaught Skating Club has 2 shows today in Richmond, BC at 1 p.m. and 6 p.m. at Minoru Arena on Saturday, March 11 (today):
"The top skaters at the club have chosen BC Children’s Hospital as the recipient for any donations collected on the day."
Added later: Kirsten Moore-Towers (who coaches at Connaught SC now and performed in the show with Michael Marinaro) shared an Instagram story clip of sbs (sort of) triple Lutzes landed by Wesley Chiu, Liam Kapeikis and Gabriel Blumenthal - great to see so many boys in this club!

Re-posting @just tuned in's 2 links here even though the shows took place in February :):
David Shapiro was in the cast of "Beards on Ice," a show by the Bearded Ladies Cabaret. He was really wonderful, as were performances by Michael Solonoski (US Adult Gold Medalist) and David Devan (Canada)

One of his new numbers is to Debussy's "Clair de Lune."
This local DE article mentions Johnny will bring back “Creep” as his second number:
"Clair de Lune," Weir said, encompasses the entire journey.
"And at the end, it just opens way up. It’s a crescendo. […]
In Weir's first number, he'll skate to Radiohead's "Creep." The version he'll use for the show is performed by a contestant on "Eurovision Song Contest" on Peacock, for which Weir is a host.

From the local DE article on Johnny Weir, linked above:
In Weir's first number, he'll skate to Radiohead's "Creep." The version he'll use for the show is performed by a contestant on "Eurovision Song Contest" on Peacock, for which Weir is a host.
"Creep" filmed by a fan at last night's show: https://www.instagram.com/reel/CqeuhERJh9U/

Johnny's DWTS partner, Britt Stewart, made the trip to watch her partner skate. :)

Other performers included Bekker/Hernandez, Hauer/Starr, Epps/Gilman, Ting Cui, Emmanuel Savary, Luke Wang (skated here as a singles skater before he moved to CO Springs for pairs). I think Nick Hsieh and Peter Liu (both back from college) performed as well?

Mirai is skating in this show and there is a livestream.
I skated in all three of these shows and can provide video of Mirai if anyone wants! Very well-done show with lights/sound/overall flow. I had skated with her before in 2018 and she was so much happier this past weekend (and we got to talk post show too when she wasn't as stressed with skating) Happy that it's over though and I get next week off (although if anyone wants me to go to Ice Chips and give a recap let me know)!

The [Tenley E. Albright] Performance Center is gearing up for Ice Chips: Full Throttle! Check back here for more BTS footage and cast videos leading up to the show. We hope to see you there👋🏻

Re-posting here from Nathan's fan thread:
For those attending the Ice Chips show this weekend, there will be a free shuttle between SCOB and the Rt 128 MBTA station (at Del Frisco's Grille) running every 10 minutes starting 2 hours before show time.

Re-posting here from Nathan's fan thread:
So is there no free parking for the event? For skam there was a free parking lot with a shuttle but 128 is a paid MBTA lot (I know it’s just $7 on weekdays and $3 on weekends but we did have to wait 30 min after the event let out for the first shuttle to start leaving after skam).

ETA just saw there’s $30 parking at the rink but sold out. No mention of the shuttle on their site yet.

Ion Arena in Leesburg, Va., is advertising "Ice on Fire," a live show accompanied by the Loudoun Symphony Orchestra, on June 10. No names listed, but the poster shows Davis/Smolkin.
https://www.ionitc.com/events (scroll down)

On Facebook there's another poster that also shows McNamara/Spiridonov.

... which makes sense, since that's where both teams train.

3 pics of Nathan performing at Ice Chips: https://twitter.com/KatCornetta/status/1644498177863581699
First half of @SkatingClubBOS’s Ice Chips was fantastic. Nathan Chen closed the first half with a new program to Billy Joel’s “Vienna.”
A short clip: https://twitter.com/Julie_AT1/status/1644497225496555520

ETA that the same person tweeted that Nathan's second half solo was to "Mr Blue Sky by Electric Light Orchestra" - final spin: https://twitter.com/Julie_AT1/status/1644517979499945984

Quick notes from Ice Chips:
  • Solid attendance for an ice show - the arena was about 80% full for the afternoon session.
  • Thorough job incorporating most everyone in the club at every single level from the youngest ones to the adult ranks.
  • Besides Nathan, the club's senior "stars" included Gabriella Izzo, Emily Chan/Spencer Howe, Jimmy Ma, and Maxim Naumov. All were entertaining and clean in their jumps, and it was clear that they weren't just seniors, but elite national ones at that.
  • Gosh, Nathan has sure blossomed into a complete skater now. The presentation and polish are all there, and it's been amazing to see how far he's come from when many of us remember him breaking out at 2010 Spokane Nats.
  • There was a "Top Gun" number where the older guys came out in tank tops and cargoes. It could have been thoroughly :grope: but was kind of flat, except for Misha Mitrofanov who was quite :grope: noticeable. If you thought Zach Donohue was built, Misha's not just got all that, but he's absolutely ripped too. 🤩😋😇
  • I had the honor of running into Matt Savoie, his husband, and son. I noted how they made for such a handsome family and how his skates gave a lot of us proud, happy tears, not just Dick Button. 👏
  • I took a skating shuttle for once :eek: and survived. :p
