THIS is why the BBC sued the producers of Ballroom with a Twist. An OFFICIAL Dancing with the Stars tour was about to kick off. Brand confusion, and worse yet, the unofficial tour siphoning off ticket sales from the real deal, had to be stopped. Ballroom with a Twist has been touring for a few years now. I’m surprised that BBC hasn’t moved to shut them down earlier.
In any case, only pro dancers Mark Ballas and Witney Carson have been announced for the tour so far. Stay tuned for further announcements! DWTS Live kicks off on December 27 in Niagara Falls NY, and winds up in Los Angeles on February 15. Tickets are on sale NOW.
