Description

When Olympic gold medalist and four-time World Champion Scott Hamilton launched his "Stars on Ice" tour in 1986, everyone wished him the best. In fact, the best is what he got-and with the help of some of figure skating's top performers, Hamilton's "Stars on Ice" has become the most successful ice skating tour on the planet. Stars on Ice is a lively look at one of figure skating's most remarkable success stories with behind-the-scenes vignettes revealing the heartfelt camaraderie and sense of family felt among the skaters. From Dorothy Hamill to Brian Orser, from Katarina Witt to Kristi Yamaguchi, Stars on Ice beautifully displays the talents of Olympic and World Champion skaters through stunning full-color photographs. From the tour's early days of opening night fiascoes to the tragically unexpected loss of Sergei Grinkov to Scott Hamilton's own battle with cancer, Stars on Ice tells a tale of a sport that has touched fans like no other. "Stars on Ice" plays to sold-out crowds in cities across the United States and Canada, bringing at least fourteen of the top figure skaters in the world to each venue. It's been a recipe for success that's helped elevate figure skating to its position of global prominence. Now, Stars on Ice helps to explain and illustrate this sport's everlasting fascination.show more
