Creator and Director Channing Tatum said “The morning after we opened our first production in Vegas four years ago, we all talked about the crazy idea of someday putting Magic Mike Live in a tent and traveling around Australia. The fact that it’s actually happening now is mind-blowing to me. The tent and this new version of the show is more than I ever imagined it could be and I can’t wait for our fans in Australia to see what we’ve created especially for them.”

This first-class experience features some of the world’s sexiest, most talented guys performing heart-racing dance routines in front of, above and all around the audience.

Bottle service, Champagne, Sparkling Wine or Rosé Wine, and other beverages are available throughout the show and can be ordered right from the guest’s seat.
