Stars on Ice Tour History

Stars On Ice was founded in 1986 by Scott Hamilton as a forum in which to showcase figure skating to a fuller extent, both athletically and creatively, than had previously been available to professional skaters. Whereas previously the only routes open to pros who wished to continue skating were the Ice Capades, or similar ice show revues, Stars On Ice was a unique opportunity for skaters to express their creativity in working together to create new group and individual numbers and continue their growth as skaters.

Although the initial "Scott Hamilton's America Tour" only reached five cities, the tour soon expanded to 30, and by the time its 10th anniversary rolled around, was reaching 55 cities in America alone, as well as many additional stops in a relatively new branch of the tour in Canada. Having gained its main sponsor, Discover Card, Stars On Ice became known as Discover Stars On Ice. In 1999, Target Stores took over sponsorship and DSOI became TSOI, Target Stars On Ice. Fourteen years after Scott Hamilton founded Stars on Ice, he decided to make the fifteenth tour his last. The 2001-2002 tour was thus dubbed the "Scott Hamilton Farewell Tour" and was a chance for Scott to say goodbye to the cities which had supported him and come to see him skate for so many years. In 2002, Smuckers took over as title sponsor. Over the years, as skating has declined in popularity in North America, the US tour has been visiting ever fewer cities. For its 25th anniversary tour, Stars on Ice is down to 25 cities in the US.

The Canadian branch of the tour began in 1991, gaining its own sponsor and becoming known as Chrysler Stars On Ice. Chrysler is no longer the sponsor of the Canadian Stars on Ice (after the 2001 tour). For the last several years, HSBC has been the primary sponsor, along with Smuckers and an array of lesser sponsors. CSOI visits almost a dozen cities in Canada at the conclusion of the US SOI tour, and is "headquartered" in Halifax. For the 2009 tour, the Canadian and US tours ran in parallel for the first time, with independent casts targeting their respective markets.

Stars on Ice has also visited Asia for several years, with the Stars on Ice Japan tour, and at the height of its popularity, has also toured internationally in other countries.

Exceptional in its ability to combine thrilling individual numbers with well choreographed, carefully integrated group numbers, Stars On Ice is definitely not to be missed.
