Channing Tatum starred in the Magic Mike films, which were inspired by his own experience as a stripper.

The actor created and co-directed the stage show, but will not be performing on the tour.

Magic Mike Live co-director Alison Faulk said: “This is not Magic Mike Live with more seats. Our arena tour is something totally different.

“After a year of isolation and frustration, we want to give women something that makes them feel alive again - a sort of celebratory revival that makes them want to stand on their chairs, dance with their friends and feel connected to each other.

“The show is a once in a lifetime celebration of togetherness, sexuality and freedom that only an arena can hold. We want our guys to give our fans the best night of their lives with a party they’ll never forget.”

The stage show premiered in Berlin in 2020 and the Australia national tour opened in Sydney in December 2020.
