Stars On Ice Returns to Xcel Energy Center
Rob Bailey Communications
SAINT PAUL, Minn. - 2016 will mark the 30th anniversary of the Stars on Ice tour. The Emmy Award-winning production's celebration tour will be headlined by 2014 Olympic Ice Dance Gold Medalists Meryl Davis and Charlie White. They will be joined by an ensemble of America's best figure skaters, including members of the U.S. team that will compete at the 2016 World Figure Skating Championships.
For the first time since 2009, the U.S. will play host to the world's best at the 2016 World Figure Skating Championships. Team USA is hopeful their home ice advantage will translate into numerous medals this April. And, after they accomplish that feat, many of those same skaters will leave Boston and join the 2016 Stars on Ice tour, which will visit Saint Paul on Sunday, May 1 for a 4 p.m. performance at Xcel Energy Center.
In addition to Davis and White, performers in the 2016 Stars on Ice tour will include: three-time and reigning U.S. Champion and 2014 Olympic Bronze Medalist Ashley Wagner, 2014 U.S. Champion and 2014 Olympic Bronze Medalist Gracie Gold and four-time U.S. Champion and 2014 Olympic Bronze Medalist Jeremy Abbott. This year, the tour will also serve as an on-going passing of the torch, showcasing the two Ice Dancing teams poised to follow in the footsteps of Davis and White; reigning U.S. Ice Dance Champions and 2015 World Silver Medalists Madison Chock and Evan Bates, and five-time U.S. National Medalists and 2011 World Bronze Medalists Maia and Alex Shibutani.
