To refresh your memory, this thrilling, sexy, live dance and acrobatic spectacular – created and produced by the team behind the Magic Mike film franchise, of course – features 15 of the most talented male dancers in the world, alongside a host of incredible performers including a fabulous, strong, and hilarious leading lady handling MC duties.

There’s no better place to be in 2021 than inside The Arcadia. This custom-built venue, made by the legendary tent building family at Het Spiegelpaleis in Belgium just for Magic Mike Live in Australia, is as intimate as it is breathtaking, and no matter where you’re seated, you’re sure to feel like a queen. More on the views later.

Don’t just take it from us though – hear what everyone else is saying about Magic Mike Live.

Magic Mike Live is entertaining, funny and, yes, very horny…While Magic Mike Live never takes itself too seriously, it does feel sincere in its sex positivity. The show is emphatic in relaying that women can get anything we want, if we just ask for it. Giving women permission to seek out and enjoy sex might not be ground-breaking in 2021, but it still feels like a message worth repeating.

The Guardian

[Magic Mike Live] taps into the wishes and desires of real women to deliver an empowering evening of entertainment…to share dancing, daring acrobatics and deliciously sculpted bodies with an audience ready for excitement…Tatum and his co-creators…have created a show where they seek to present what real women look for in a man, thereby shifting and acknowledging the power a woman should have in the relationship she has with her sexuality.

We hope you’re seeing a theme in these reviews too. While the stage might be filled with men, the night is all about women – our empowerment, our sexuality, our comfort, and our pleasure.

Magic Mike Live makes a claim that permission is the world’s sexiest word. And they back it up…There is no mistaking the magic in this spectacle. The magic is bold, bodacious and beautiful. It is emotional. It is provocative. It values feelings. It is women’s sexuality being honoured without shame and if that isn’t a kind of magic then I don’t know what is.”

Don’t dismiss this as an evening of eye candy alone, these guys are extremely talented professionals – they dance, they sing, they’re accomplished musicians…the whole package…it’s the perfect night out to enjoy with your BFFs.

It’s an incredibly athletic performance where dancers present a 360 degree performance, not only onstage, but from the balconies and staircases which surround their audience, engaging them from every corner of the Arcadia.

The whole Spiegeltent became the stage. As an audience member you are surrounded by the action.

The magic extends beyond the 360-degree performance space into every nook and cranny of the world’s largest Spiegeltent. From the moment you walk into The Arcadia, you enter a world exquisitely and meticulously designed to tick all the boxes – from the cocktails to the couches, from the lighting to the luscious dancers. Tick. Tick. Tick. Tick
