It’s time to save up your dollar bills and stock up on Baby Oil, as “Magic Mike” is heading to Las Vegas.
Channing Tatum announced Wednesday that his hit male stripper franchise will be debuting a new show at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas in March 2017.
The actor shared the good news exclusively via Facebook Live on his Facebook page, while introducing fans to a few performers in the show.
“Shirtless men and puppies. What better way to announce ‘Magic Mike Live’ at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Las Vegas. Thanks Cosmopolitan [magazine], you’re the best. And to everyone else … you’re welcome,” the cheeky action star wrote.
Tatum also answered fan questions about the show, revealing what cameos they can expect — and why it is going to revolutionize male entertainment.
“I’m going to introduce you to some of the guys who are going to be in the show, they’ve been working really hard. I can’t get away from those double entendres,” he said in the Facebook video message. “I’m going to let everybody introduce themselves and hopefully in the coming months you guys will get to know them better.”
“Magic Mike Live” features choreographer Alison Faulk, who choreographed the memorable dance numbers featured in the two films. And once he has “gotten back into ‘Magic Mike’ shape,” Tatum promised that he will make an appearance on stage.
“I’m sure there will be a lot of crazy cameos. We have nothing scheduled because we want to make sure the show stands on its own, but I am going to direct it with Faulk and Teresa Espinoza choreographing,” he said. “We’re already having a lot of fun coming up with things you’ve never seen before. Tickets will be available soon.”
Tatum first bared all in Warner Bros.’ 2012 “Magic Mike,” which was loosely based on his own experiences as an 18-year-old stripper in Tampa, Florida.
