Oti Mabuse adds huge London date to I AM HERE UK tour

The reigning Strictly Come Dancing champion's debut UK tour will kick off in April 2021.

Reigning Strictly Come Dancing and The Greatest Dancer champion Oti Mabuse has announced her first ever UK tour, kicking off in Peterborough on 16 April 2021, and concluding with a triumphant gala appearance at the London Coliseum on 14 July 2021.

The I AM HERE tour – a translation of Mabuse’s name in the Setswana language – is inspired by Oti’s journey from South Africa to the UK. The show promises a range of styles, from jive to samba, and including traditional South African dance. She’ll be joined on stage by a range of West End singers and musicians, plus professional dancers from across the globe.

“It’s like a dream come true to be announcing my first ever tour,” Oti says. “Performing on stage is something I feel so passionately about, and I can’t wait to get out on the road and share my story with you all.”

Celebrated globally as one of the most successful South African dancers, Oti has claimed the title of South African Latin American Champion eight times. As well as presenting and judging on UK television, Mabuse is responsible for choreographing a number of acclaimed stage musicals.

Mabuse first joined the Strictly Come Dancing family in in 2015, dancing alongside professional boxer Anthony Ogogo. The following year she reached the final alongside Danny Mac. Last year Oti finally claimed the title with dance partner Kelvin Fletcher.

Having spent the last few months curating Home Festival with Strictly Come Dancing‘s Karen Hauer, Oti Mabuse has now also been confirmed as the presenter of CBeebies’ Boogie Beebies.

The I AM HERE tour will see Oli perform 50 shows across the UK.
