The pair’s last show, The Last Tango, had been billed as their farewell tour, but the pair who rose to fame on Strictly Come Dancing couldn’t keep their feet still and are returning to the stage.

They’ll be twirling back to the Sunderland Empire from November 20-22 with new tour, Tango Moderno.

It’s set to follow the success of previous shows Midnight Tango, Dance Til Dawn and The Last Tango, which proved to be sell-out tours.

Speaking about their unexpected return, Flavia Cacace, who’s been dancing with Vincent Simone for 20 years, said: “As we were creating our last show, we developed a number of new routines with so much raw choreography.

“It was thrilling to still be discovering new numbers for Vincent and I to dance, but we just couldn’t accommodate them in the production. We toured the country with the show and were overwhelmed by the support from our audiences and from people asking us to continue.

“Vincent and I spoke at the end of the tour and we decided that we wanted to continue; we love dancing together, we are having so much fun and a year after our last UK tour, we are more excited than ever to share this new work and show with our audiences.”

The new production fuses together Ballroom, Latin, and Argentine tango, for which the pair have become famous.

Tango Moderno is directed by Olivier Award winning choreographer and director Karen Bruce and produced by Adam Spiegel Productions, who produced their previous tours.
