'Dancing with the Stars' performers, the ultimate Beatles tribute, and an award-winning classical-crossover ensemble added to EKU Center schedule

Monday, December 4, 2017

The EKU Center for the Arts in Richmond, Kentucky, has added three new performances to its 2018 schedule.

Dancing With the Stars performers Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Valentin Chmerkovskiy and Peta Murgatroyd will bring their "Maks, Val & Peta Live on Tour: Confidential" to the EKU Center on Friday, April 20 at 7:30 PM. Tickets are $50-$75 and go on sale Friday at 9:00 AM.

The trio along with a dazzling cast of the industry's best dancers will take to the EKU Center stage for a spectacular dance show, driven by a narrative of true family life and love stories. Honest and intimate, the stars will be revealing their closest secrets, hopes, and dreams in their own inimitable style. The show will inspire and delight, combining the elegance of the ballroom, some confidential revelations, and a true love story.

Maksim Chmerkovskiy said: "'Our Way' was just the beginning of the story. This time I'm a husband, a father, in the best shape of my professional career and still learning on and off the dance floor every day. I've had two of the most eventful years of my life and I can’t wait to use my favorite medium to express what’s on my mind and in my heart. Sharing a stage with my wife and my brother, what could be better than that!”

The Fab Four - The Ultimate Tribute arrives at the EKU Center on Sunday, April 15 at 7:30 PM. The Emmy Award-winning Fab Four has amazed audiences worldwide with their uncanny, note-for-note, live renditions of the Beatles' catalogue. Hosted by "Ed Sullivan," this incredible multimedia stage production, complete with multiple costume changes (one for every era of the Beatles ever-changing career), will make you think you are experiencing the real thing. Tickets are $35-$65 and go on sale Friday at 9:00 AM.
