( Rosemont, IL ) — Adam Rippon will be among Olympic figure skaters appearing with the Stars on Ice Tour at AllState Arena on April 29.

Every four years, the Winter Olympics give us a chance to revel in the performances of our favorite athletes, as well as celebrate any medals they might have won. The U.S. Olympic Figure Skating Team delivered against tough opposition winning a Bronze medal in the team competition, while Maia & Alex Shibutani, the brother-sister two-time National Ice Dance Champions and three-time World medalists also took home an Ice Dance Olympic Bronze. Despite narrowly missing out on the podium, two-time National Champion Nathan Chen delivered one of the Olympics greatest single performances with his record-breaking free skate that featured SIX quadruple jumps! Then he went on to win Gold at the World Figure Skating Championship. Those Olympic memories will be at the epicenter of the 2018 Stars on Ice tour that will feature many of the skaters who medaled for the U.S. in the 2018 Winter Olympics. The Tour will visit Rosemont, IL on Sunday, April 29 for a 4:00 PM performance at the Allstate Arena.

This year's Stars on Ice tour will put American fans front and center to experience the best of U.S. Figure Skating. Joining Maia & Alex Shibutani as 2018 Olympic medalists on the 2018 tour will be U.S. Olympic Team Bronze Medalists; U.S. Champion and overnight sensation Rippon; two-time and reigning National Champion Nathan Chen, 2018 U.S. Ladies Champion Bradie Tennell, and National Champion Mirai Nagasu, who made history by landing the first triple axel for an American woman at the Olympics.

The 2018 Stars on Ice tour will also present several other skating luminaries, including U.S. Olympic royalty, Ice Dance Gold Medalists Meryl Davis & Charlie White; 2018 National Ice Dance Champions and World Silver Medalists Madison Hubbell & Zachary Donohue; three-time National Champion and 2016 World Silver Medalist Ashley Wagner; National Champion and huge crowd favorite, Jason Brown; and 2017 U.S. Ladies Champion Karen Chen.

Tickets start at $25 and are available at www.starsonice.com, www.ticketmaster.com, the Allstate Arena Box Office, select retail locations, and by phone at 1-800-745-3000.
