Tatum appeared with the cast of the musical, which is based upon his hugely popular, semi-autobiographical Magic Mike films about a male stripper, to announce that the show will make its UK debut in London’s Hippodrome Casino in November after kicking off its run in Las Vegas last year.
The audience – and judge David Walliams – went wild. Check out a clip of his entrance below.
Anyone else feeling a little hot under the collar? @DavidWalliams is!

Magic Mike Live – which has been described in a press release as a “360-degree dance spectacular” – will serve as a prequel to the films, and is set around the Tatum’s character’s early days at strip club Dominica. Tatum will co-direct the production alongside choreographer Alison Faulk.
Unsurprisingly, only those who are 18 and over will be able to attend.
Check out a steamy trailer for the show below.
Previews will run from 10th November, ahead of the official launch on 28th November. Tickets star at £29 and are on sale now – get yours here.
