Stars on Ice
- Thursday | Apr. 19, 2018 7:30 PM
Every four years, the Winter Olympics not only give us a chance to celebrate and revel in our favorite athletes, but also to discover some incredible new breakout stars. Ardent fans of figure skating have become familiar with two-time and reigning National Champion Nathan Chen, but by the time the 2018 Winter Olympic Games are over, the world will be as well. Chen, the first skater to land five different quadruple jumps during a single program in competition, will be a key member of an immensely talented U.S. Figure Skating Team looking to grab Gold at the Olympics. He will also be the centerpiece of the 2018 Stars on Ice tour that will feature current National Champions, and many of the skaters vying for medals for the U.S. in the 2018 Winter Olympics. The Tour will arrive in Allentown, PA on Thursday, April 19 for a 7:30 PM performance at the PPL Center.
This year’s Stars on Ice tour will put American fans front and center to experience the best of U.S. Figure Skating. A couple of first-time faces graced the top of the podium at this year’s National Championships in San Jose. Among those National Champions, who will also compete in the upcoming Winter Olympics, then return stateside to skate in the 2018 Stars on Ice tour, will be 2018 National Ice Dance Champions Madison Hubbell & Zachary Donohue.
Returning to Stars on Ice this year, are Maia & Alex Shibutani, the brother-sister two-time National Ice Dance Champions and three-time World medalists. Other Olympic medal hopefuls rejoining the tour include; National Champion Mirai Nagasu, 2017 U.S. Ladies Champion Karen Chen, and U.S. Champion Adam Rippon. The Emmy Award-winning production will also feature U.S. Olympic royalty, Ice Dance Gold Medalists Meryl Davis & Charlie White, as well as three-time National Champion and 2016 World Silver Medalist Ashley Wagner, and National Champion and huge crowd favorite, Jason Brown.
