Stars on Ice. The Japan show cast is looking incedible!
The Stars On Ice shows which begin after Worlds in the US, Canada and Japan will feature many of the top "eligible" skaters from this competitive season. Back in the day, "Stars" truly had "stars" and the show's cast list matched the name, not just the headliners. In the case of the JAPAN show, it truly seems to be the case, and in spades.
While not completely confirmed the featured skaters are looking like:
- Ladies: Mao Asada, Carolina Kostner, Akiko Suzuki, Joannie Rochette and Kanako Murakami.
- Men: Roster could include the top 4 from the Olympics, Yuzuru Hanyu, Patrick Chan, Dennis Ten, and Javier Fernandez; plus Jeffrey Buttle.
- Dance and Pairs: Tessa Virtue/Scott Moir, Maia & Alex Shibutani and Pang/Tong.
WHAT A CAST! Worth the ticket price for sure!
Celebrating the Excellence of #VirtueMoir
Are the cast members shown on the SOI Japan site not completely confirmed??

(This year's SOI Japan tour also has been discussed in two other general SOI threads.
Question (I don't know a lot about these different skating shows): have all of the Japanese ice shows been branches of Stars on Ice like this one or do they also have independently produced shows? I thought I heard Mao was producing her own shows similar to Yuna
