Scott Hamilton and Company Prepare to Kick Off Stars on Ice 2009

Stars on Ice first came about in 1986, when popular figure skater Scott Hamilton was cut from Ice Capades. After losing his job, Hamilton decided to group together his resources and take his career back into his own hands, by creating his own small-scale figure skating show. The idea behind Stars on Ice, was to bring together a few of the world’s best figure skaters and have them showcase their talents on tour, to crowds of avid figure skating fans. In its debut year, the show featured Scott Hamilton, Dorothy Hamill, Toller Cranston, Rosalynn Summers, Brian Pockar, Lea Ann Miller, Bill Fauver, Lisa Carey and Christ Harrison and was an instant hit.

As time passed, the show continued to grow in popularity and began to quickly transform from a small-scale production, into the highly anticipated annual tour it is today and in 1991, a Canadian version was even created. The modern Stars on Ice is produced by Scott Hamilton and features numerous dates in both Canadian and American locations, over a period of roughly three months in total. The event features both individual performances and couples skating.

The 2009 American Stars on Ice show is set to begin in Washington state in late January and visit various cities, before coming to an end in Portland, on April 11. The American tour will feature Sasha Cohen, Ilia Kulik, Todd Eldredge, Xue Shen, Hongbo Zhao, Yuka Sato, Marie-France Dubreuil, Patrice Lauzon, Michael Weiss, John Zimmerman and Jennifer Robinson. The Canadian Tour will run in April and May and will feature Kurt Browning, Jamie Sale, David Pelletier, Jeff Buttle, Sasha Cohen and many others and runs from April 23 until May 12, in various Canadian cities.
