Magic Mike Live Cancelled Due to Uncertainty Caused by COVID-19

Unfortunately, the increased uncertainty around whether the production would be able to perform on any of its announced dates, especially given the recent restrictions imposed by the Victorian government, the producers of Magic Mike Live have sadly cancelled the remainder of their Australian tour. This means that the Spiegeltent will come down in Melbourne and not be erected in Brisbane, Perth or Adelaide this year and next. However, the producers claim they are “committed to returning to Australia in the future” and are also working to “provide the cast and crew with employment opportunities on other Magic Mike Live productions around the world”.

Since debuting in Sydney in December 2020, Magic Mike Live has had to suspend performances on four different occasions. This includes the cancellation of Sydney and Melbourne opening nights, with most other performance dates being “played at severely limited capacities”.

Guests with tickets for the remainder of the Australian tour will receive full refunds and the Magic Mike Live team ask them to please watch their emails (including junk/spam) for updates from Ticketmaster.

Everyone at Magic Mike Live is heartbroken to have to make this decision but we have been left with no choice. The producers have provided millions of dollars in funding to support the production during the various closures to preserve the tour for our amazing Australian fans.

After enduring four lockdowns and millions of dollars in refunds and cancellations, we simply can’t sustain a tour that has no opportunity to perform.

Our performers, crew, management team and local industry partners in Australia have constantly amazed us with their talent, dedication, and resiliency. Their hard work combined with the truly heart-warming reception we received from audiences in Sydney and Melbourne, make us hopeful that we can someday return to Australia and finish what we started.

Vincent Marini – Executive Producer of Magic Mike Live

Another victim of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic… I would like to take this time to strongly encourage everyone to book in for their vaccination and get their jabs. If enough of us manage to collaboratively get our shots, there is a greater likelihood that negative events such as this cancellation will not happen.
