A new figure skating show coming this fall and will have Canadian figure skating superstars tour 30 cities all over the Great White North.

“The Thank You Canada Tour” will feature a number of Olympic medalists, including Tessa Virtue, Scott Moir, Patrick Chan and Kaetlyn Osmond.

As the tour’s the name suggests, viewers will experience a figure skating tribute dedicated to Canada.

“It’s thrilling to return to Canada and celebrate with those who have supported us every step of the way,” said Virtue in a release issued Tuesday morning.

Virtue added that she is happy the tour will visit cities that don’t ordinarily host skating productions.

“We know firsthand how important grassroots programs are in small towns. It’s how we got our start.”
