Brendan Cole announces his thrilling tour for 2013. Starting on January 20th in Aylesbury and concluding in Newport on March 9th, the 32 date tour will be a feast of pure entertainment by an international cast of dancers with amazing star quality.

‘Licence To Thrill’, Brendan’s eagerly anticipated follow up to his debut theatre tour ‘Live and Unjudged’, promises all of the Ballroom and Latin favourites seen on Strictly Come Dancing, with Brendan hosting his audience throughout in this sophisticated new show.

Brendan and his phenomenal cast of 14 musicians and 6 world class dancers are set to dazzle audiences with scintillating music and choreography in this 2 hour dance and big band extravaganza. The Waltzes and Foxtrots will take audiences on an emotional journey of beauty and sophistication while the fast paced Quicksteps, Tangos and American Smooths will simply take their breath away. The excitement of the Latin dances with the likes of Cha Cha, Samba, Salsa and Jive will have people itching to get up and join in right there in their seats while enjoying all of the passion of a dance show offering it all!

The band is lead by Musical Director Barry Robinson and includes the brilliant vocalists Ian Mackenzie and Julie Maguire and some of Britain’s best musicians. On stage throughout the show they will perform songs from across the decades from Nat King Cole to Gladys Knight and Michael Jackson to Tom Jones. Asked if there will be a James Bond theme, Brendan replied “A small one. One of the big songs is Gladys Knight’s Licence to Kill (hence the Licence to Thrill title). Also there will be a dance-off between the males in Live and Let Die which I’m really excited about.”

So who are the dancers who will be joining Brendan on this tour? “My dance cast is truly international with a collective CV from Competition, Theatre, Stage and Television! I’m very lucky to have a cast that have been in Dancing With The Stars of France, Australia and Mexico as well as stars from the Broadway hit Burn the Floor and, of course, Strictly Come Dancing.

My brother Scott is one of my dancers and he brings something very unique to the evening. I am very excited about the latest addition to the cast, my leading lady from France – Fauve Hauto, she is truly sensational! She has such presence and is so exciting to watch so I’m very much looking forward to working with her. I also have the gorgeous Australian dancer Melanie Hooper returning from last year’s show as well as Germany’s Patrick Helm who I’m sure the ladies will absolutely love! With this wealth of talent we will ensure audiences have the best seat in the house, every night, all night and I can’t wait to see it all as a finished product.”
