Canada’s favourite skaters Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir will be performing in Red Deer this week at the Rock the Rink event at the Centrium.

The Thursday, Oct. 10, show also includes performances by Patrick Chan, Kaetlyn Osmond, Elvis Stojko — as well as world-renowned skaters from the U.S. (Jeremy Abbott), Italy(Carolina Kostner), and Russia (Tatiana Volosozhar and Maxim Trankov).

Half-way through last year’s sold out Thank You Canada tour, Virtue, Moir and Chan knew they weren’t finished creating a new style of skating entertainment. They launched Rock The Rink – “a tour that focuses on combining the highest level of on-ice superstar talent with an ever-evolving touring production.”

Along with upgrades to lighting, video and interactive technology, live music was introduced to the show, with featured special musical guest, Birds of Bellwoods.

Tickets are available at rocktherink.com.
