If you were in any doubt as to where the horniest ticket of 2020 was going to be, your long search is over: Channing Tatum, who believe it or not is in Melbourne right now, has just announced a string of Magic Mike Live shows that are set to rumble into both Melbourne and Sydney across 2020. Commence fanning yourself right now.

Tatum appeared at a media call at the Plaza Ballroom in the Melbourne CBD this afternoon to announce the Magic Mike Live stage show will be shaking its way to Australia next year, with Melbourne first on the itinerary from May, and Sydney to follow in November. Tatum also promised the show will eventually move on to runs in both Brisbane and Perth as well, once Melbourne and Sydney have been covered.

Following a successful run in London, an on-going run-in-residence at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, and a planned opening in Berlin, the extremely fleshy live show will arrive in both major Australian cities, with a pair of specially-made venues set to house the show on our shores.

Tatum arrived on-stage at the Plaza surrounded by half-nude dudes and announced the show. There’s no more info to attach to that piece of information, but you bet your ass there’s a lot of footage and images on social media.

Again, it’s a very horny show. Cannot possibly stress that enough here.

The shows will take place at a pair of venues both called The Arcadia, which will be a specially constructed venue that will house the show at Birrarung Marr in Melbourne, before moving up to the Entertainment Quarter in Sydney.

According to the show’s official blurb, the Magic Mike Live experience will feature “a 360-degree live dance and acrobatic spectacular based on the hit movies.” Which, again, sounds outrageously horny.

The show is scheduled to open on May 26th in Melbourne, and is booked to run through till August 16th in the Victorian capital.

It then shifts up to Sydney, commencing its season on November 19th, with a last show currently scheduled for December 20th

Tickets for all the shows are on sale right now as we speak, and you can get at them via Ticketmaster.

2020, mates. It’s gonna be hot in more ways than one.
