Strictly Superfan on Tour

Strictly Superfan on Tour

Superfan Zoe Chan has supported Aljaž and Janette since seeing the pair on Strictly Come Dancing. 

Zoe went to 8 shows during this year’s tour including 6 meet and greets and over 2500 miles travelled!

 

Here is what she had to say about the show:

“As a huge fan of Aljaž and Janette, I was ecstatic when they were announced to be taking part in the Remembering Fred Tour, and quickly made plans with my friends and family around the country to go and see the show. Tickets were booked as soon as they went on sale.

In total I did 8 shows starting off with Opening Night in Blackpool followed by shows in Gateshead, London Palladium, Richmond, York, Edinburgh, Portsmouth and finished with closing night in Truro. Each night I came away with wonderful memories from this fantastic show.

Remembering Fred has everything you could want in a show. The costumes are absolutely stunning…..there were so many beautiful dresses that I couldn’t pick a favourite. The world class 6 piece band provided the exquisite musical soundtrack to the show night after night.
What a cast….each individually brilliant but collectively wonderful together. The fabulous Miranda and David provide stunning vocals. The energy and talent of the dancers Veronica, Charlie, Alastair and Scott blew me away and I hope they all return for next years tour.
Aljaž and Janette. Simply world class. I already knew the depth of their talent so I knew what to expect from them. In Remembering Fred they portray a wide range of moods and emotions on stage from romantic & cheeky to flirty & funny, to happiness & joy. They perfectly pay tribute to Fred Astaire without trying to imitate him.

Remembering Fred is a wonderful tribute to the legend that is Fred Astaire. I cannot wait to do it all again next year for Remembering Fred 2018 and excited to see what next year’s show will bring. I would highly recommend the show to anyone who hasn’t got their tickets yet. You will have a wonderful night and be thoroughly entertained from start to finish.

Thank you to everyone involved in Remembering Fred for a wonderful show.”
