A MESSAGE FROM CHANNING TATUM
I’m often asked if we’re going to make a third MAGIC MIKE movie and my answer is always the same, “the live show is the third movie.” It’s the evolution of our favorite ideas that we began to explore in the films. We imagined a world where all women were empowered to ask for more…more from men, from sex, from entertainment…from everything. We imagined a world where sexuality was celebrated as art. Where people could come to shows like ours with their friends and walk out with huge smiles on their faces, feeling turned on, powerful, and free.
I wanted to create a space where men really listened to women. Where all women could experience a place where just being themselves would be enough for every man in the room. I wanted to take a type of entertainment that had not evolved at all since the late 70’s, and reimagine it for the world we live in right now— to provocatively jumpstart the conversation about what it is that women really want from the men in their lives. I wanted to see what kind of creativity would emerge from men when they listened to women and gave them what they wanted.
After a lot of listening and literally years of work, I came together with a very special group of artists to launch MAGIC MIKE LIVE in Las Vegas. We were all truly humbled by the incredible response to the show from women around the world and without question, the hundreds of thousands of women who experienced the show inspired us to try to do more – to take it to the next level, which we accomplished with the London production of MAGIC MIKE LIVE
From the first moment we thought up MAGIC MIKE LIVE, we always dreamt of bringing it to Australia. The movies did so amazingly here, we knew we had to figure out how to raise our game. It took a few years for it to all come together but … man … did it come together. We have something planned for Australia that is going to blow your minds.
