LAS VEGAS, Nev. — The naked truth of it is, Channing Tatum is getting ready to make some magic in Sin City — and he needs your help.
With the help of some shirtless guys and a gaggle of puppies, the actor took to Facebook to announce that Magic Mike Live is coming to Las Vegas’ Hard Rock Hotel (of course) in March 2017.
Tatum made the announcement as he walked past random shirtless guys doing household chores and playing with puppies. He also made a point to solicit suggestions from fans as to what they want to see in the show.
“God knows we have enough gentlemen’s clubs in this world, so let’s start the first gentle lady’s club,” Tatum said. “Or maybe not so gentle; it depends what you’re into.”
The live show, based on Tatum’s popular movie franchise about a male strip troupe, Magic Mike was loosely based on Tatum’s experiences as a dancer before he broke into Hollywood.
The film was released in 2012 and did well enough to be followed by Magic Mike XXL in 2015.
Tatum says he is not one of the performers, but he may hit the stage in the future — depending on what kind of shape he’s in.
A site has been set up for the show where fans can sign up for updates and further information.
