    hmm, not sure what to think here. Maybe the "international" part means that the tour will go to other countries as well (besides Japan)?

    I understand that "AEG" is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Anschutz Company. Hmmm..................................

    That is interesting. I think Kwan's boyfirend is Christopher Anschutz. I wonder if it is the same family.

    I understand that AEG is primarily owned by Chris's daddy.

    I hope the tour can be revived. I already have my tickets purchased for this year.

    For some reason I get the feeling this will be a good thing. Tom had some flaws IMO that hopefully can be addressed now.

    This outfit owns lots of sports teams and facilities. I bet they will try to put on more of a "Stars on Ice" show, with more of a permanent cast, more group choreography, more bells and whistles, etc.

    First things first, though. They'll rename the show MOC (Michelle on Ice).

    Wouldn't that be "MOI"? (As in "It's all about MOI?")
    I remember saying, after I saw the show in SF this summer, that Michelle is always going to close COI even if she needs a walker to assist her spirals. Now that's practically guaranteed!

    Oh yeah. There's that pesky dislexia again. COI, IOC.

    I definitely think this is a good thing. COI was in trouble financially, and AEG has plenty of money ... a good fit, if you ask me. At least now we can pretty much figure that COI won't be going away anytime soon.

    Not necessarily. The article mentioned about international tours, so I doubt Michelle with close COI in Russia, Japan -- or any other place outside the US

    His name is Christian, not Christopher. I'm told the family is deeply religious.

    AEG is developing facilities in London and Berlin.


    Hmmmm? Weren't they the company planning to build an ice complex and arena to host Worlds at the Millenium Dome, but the ISU didn't say yes to London's bid? I think it may've been.
