The Rip It Up UK Tour team are back! This time Lee, Louis, Rachel and Melody sing and dance to all-time classics from the 1970’s.

Rip It Up Uk Tour

With 2017’s ‘Rip it Up The 50s’ and 2018’s ‘Rip It Up The 60s’ having sold over 100,000 tickets across the UK, Lee, Louis, Rachel and Melody will now sing and dance to all-time classics from the era that brought the sounds of disco, glam rock, punk, funk, new wave and reggae. Get ready for bold fashion statements including hot pants, flares, crop tops, jumpsuits, platform shoes and tartan suits!

Lee Ryan the singer-songwriter from Blue will be adding his stunning vocal talents to the latest incarnation of the smash hit show, which brings the soundtrack of arguably popular music’s greatest decade to life in a feast of song and dance to audiences.

Lee first made his name as a member of the multi-platinum-selling British boy band Blue, before enjoying Top 10 success as a solo artist. His credits also include representing the United Kingdom with Blue at the 2011 Eurovision Song Contest, and joining the cast of EastEnders in 2017. Lee is also no stranger to the dance floor, having partnered professional dancer Nadiya Bychkova during the 2018 series of Strictly Come Dancing.

Having starred in the UK tours for both Rip it Up The 50s and Rip It Up The 60s, Louis Smith MBE is one of Britain’s sporting superstars, having shot to fame at the Beijing Olympics in 2008 by winning a bronze medal in the pommel horse, and silver medals at both the London 2012 and Rio De Janeiro 2016 Olympic Games.

After the London 2012 Olympics, Louis took part in and won that year’s series of Strictly Come Dancing, lifting the coveted Glitterball trophy with his professional dance partner Flavia Cacace.

Former S Club 7 star Rachel Stevens joins the Rip It Up team having also enjoyed success on Strictly Come Dancing. Rachel and her professional dance partner Vincent Simone narrowly missed out lifting the Glitterball Trophy during the 8th series of Strictly, finishing as runners-up in the final.

Also making her Rip It Up debut alongside Rachel is Melody Thornton, key member of multiplatinum-selling pop juggernaut Pussycat Dolls, who sold an astonishing 70 million records worldwide.

As the youngest member of the group, Melody was affectionately given the nickname ‘Baby Doll.’ But proving no one puts Baby in a corner, Melody hit the UK in January 2017 to take part in E4’s smash hit Celebs Go Dating, before appearing on other hit shows including Celebrity Juice and The Celebrity Island With Bear Grylls. Melody then landed the lead role in the stage version of The Bodyguard to rave reviews, before joining the cast of the ITV1 flagship show Dancing on Ice in 2019, reaching the final three.
