More dates have been added to Karen and Kevin's 2017 tour

"Exciting news! @keviclifton & I have added extra shows to our Kevin & Karen Dance Live Tour!" tweeted Karen in a post that her husband echoed.

The couple have previously spoken about their inspiration behind the show, which they describe as a "sultry, hip-swinging journey through the Waltz, Cha Cha, Fox Trot, Tango and Salsa".

"The tour is something we have always thought about doing since we met," Karen told HELLO!. "We love performing in a theatre. It's something that sits very close to our hearts. We met in a theatre, we got engaged in a theatre, now the best thing to do is perform our dream show in a theatre."

Kevin added: "Since meeting on Broadway, performing on the West End and eventually working together on our own projects, we have always talked about how much we would love to create our own theatre show with our own ideas."

"There's going to be exciting dances full of raw energy," said Karen

Kevin & Karen DANCE will be based on the married couple's life – how they grew up in different countries and their influences while growing up.

"There's going to be exciting dances full of raw energy, character and also numbers that are full of the love that we feel for each other," said Venezuela-born Karen.

The tour will take place from May to June 2017.
