I noticed there was a thread for the Russian ones, but not for the other major market, so I thought why not? Please add dates and stars for the ones you know are coming up, and videos/pics maybe.

Stars on Ice 2024 is currently running in Japan till 7 April, with all of the World Champions (Kaori, as 3peat, gets the honor spot at the end :biggrin:) plus Yuma, Shoma, Riki and Ryuichi, Junhwan, Satoko, Leona, Isabeau, Piper and Paul and others. As I understand it, only the last show will be televised (maybe fans will livestream) but fancams are being allowed.

Yuzuru's RE_PRAY solo show has added two more shows in Miyagi, 7 and 9 April. Broadcast and/or livestreams is a given. paid livestream through Beyond for the 9th, 7th is likely to be televised.

Fantasy on Ice have announced Yuzuru, Adam and Sota (A shows only), Gabi and Guillaume (all shows), Lilah and Lewis, Kaori and Junhwan and Kazuki (B shows) Satoko, Stephane, Javier, Mai and Rio and others, plus Japanese music stars. Runs from May 24 to June 23. No info as yet ASAIK on TV/livestream but I'd be astonished if it's not available.

Prince Ice World is coming, but I can't find a cast list?

Unfortunately Riku and Ryuichi had to cancel their SOI appearances due to Riku injuring her left shoulder during the 6-minute FS warm-up at Worlds :(:

You won't get the usual cast list for Prince Ice World on the website that you linked, because that site is about the Prince Ice World team themselves, who are the main cast and skate the majority of this ice show. The theme this year is about Broadway songs- so they skate to Japanese versions of famous Broadway (and West End and Vienna) music, and they got pretty great musical stars to record so it's pretty good as far as some music in Japanese ice shows can be. More... in tune than your usual fare. Some of them usually will appear live to sing and from my experience, they were pretty good.

You can find the names of the current PIW team members here:

If you meant the Prince Ice World "Broadway Rocks!" shows that are coming up on April 27-29 and May 3-5, 2024 at Yokohama, here is the website with the information:

The skaters who are invited as guest skaters in this particular round are the following (listed in order of guest announcement, not seniority):
All Shows: Shizuka Arakawa, Shoma Uno, Keiji Tanaka
April 27-29 only: Daisuke Takahashi/Kana Muramoto, Wakaba Higuchi, Rio Nakata, Sota Yamamoto, Koshiro Shimada
May 3-5 only: Nobunari Oda, Marin Honda, Shun Sato, Kao Miura, Yuma Kagiyama

Yuma was never announced as a guest skater, but Kao Miura and Kazuki Tomono were, if you're talking about Japanese men.

Here's the link to Beyond Live streaming platform where livestream+archive can still be bought for Yuzuru's Re_Pray show in Miyagi on April 9
(somehow missing from all the posts above :)) Although it looks like a general link, it takes you straight to the subpage where Re_Pray stream ticket can be purchased.

I have no idea about streams for the other shows so I cannot link them, sorry

Thank you for compiling all of the shows though @synesthesia ! As always you have a lot more patience than I do. I think more information about shows is always nice, especially since most of the Japanese shows that I'm interested in wasn't in the OP's original post 🥰

I wonder if they could not get Kaori and then decided to make it a concept. :unsure:
But there are quite a few other women who would be a bigger draw than some of the overseas men (even the ones I like, I'll be honest) who have been invited. I tend to think it's a gimmick to try and stand out; there are a lot of shows in Japan, especially now Takahashi and Yuzuru are running their own successful series, and that would mean more competition for audience share. The message it puts out isn't good but it'll be decided by the Japanese public.

Yuzu has just uploaded the credit sequence (intercut with moments from the show) for RE_PRAY which ended its run a few days ago, to music from Lufia/Estpolis II. For anyone who wants to see some of what he and Mikiko have been doing...
