    Stars on Ice 2015

    Is there any news about the cast of Stars On Ice 2015 yet? In particular about Meryl and Charlie joining? Please let me know.

    Dude, it's September.

    But if I was a betting gal, I'd put money on Meryl and Charlie being there.

    They start planning for the tour early, including the main theme and choreography. However, the decision on the cast is done much later, toward the end of the competition season.

    I inquired about this on their Facebook page, and it sounds like we should start hearing more concrete news for shows/core cast some time in October.

    As Charlie and Tanith are getting married in April, I wouldn't bet on Meryl and Charlie doing SOI if they have the tour start right after Worlds again.

    I doubt that Meryl & Charlie are competing this season, & perhaps SOI will go back to starting the tour during the winter (with opening night in Lake Placid, NY?). Last season's tour got under way after Worlds, so TPTB could capitalize on the Olympic season.

    Agree with what iluvtodd said. I think an Olympic year throws every schedule off and clearly SOI was waiting for Worlds to be over. Who would go, who wouldn't, who was available. And since several of the top skaters didn't seem to decide until the Olys were over it put SOI in a weird position of having to wait to see who would be in the cast. I think there is still a chance for Meryl and Charlie to skate SOI even with the wedding. My guess is the wedding was scheduled around various commitments for both Tabith and Charlie.

    Tessa and Scott made a statement as recent as yesterday that they are doing SOI. I'm hoping this means they'll finally tour the US as well!

    FWIW, when I went to SOI in Portland, I receive a pre-sale flier for 2015 that indicated that Meryl and Charlie would be involved. So I think it's pretty likely they will be there.

    Hi may I know if this thread is for SOI in North America only, or for SOI in Japan as well?

    If I can talk about SOI in Japan, then the latest information I've got is, the pre-sale lottery for SOI in Osaka (yes in Japan popular ice shows like SOI requires lottery to get a ticket, especially for the good seats)already began, the date is fixed on Jan 10/11/12, but there isn't any announcement of shows in Tokyo, nor about the cast yet.

    If SOI producers were smart, they would have made great effort last year to sign D/W to a multiyear deal as headliners. I'll be floored if they are not part of the cast again.

    I will too! That is a good idea that you had; hopefully they did that!

    Mrs. P....after seeing SOI for over 20 years, or maybe even more, those flyers really aren't an indication of who will be in the following year cast, unfortunately. I was heart-broken twice because Kurt Browning was on the flyer and then didn't skate the next year. I do hope you're right though. Watching Meryl and Charlie do exhibition programs is heavenly.

    Definitely agree with the comment on the flyers.

    For the 2014 tour, IMG made a deal with USFS. USFS would promote the show. I wondered what were the details of the deal. It turned out the cast was exclusively US skaters. If the deal is the same for coming years, it will be difficult to see non-US skaters in the US version of SOI.
