NEW YORK (AP) — Sibling performers Derek and Julianne Hough have a busy summer ahead.
They're hitting the road for the second year in a row for their "Move Live on Tour," where they dance and sing before a live audience.
This time, they're upping the ante with added tour dates, bigger venues, all new choreography and bigger production values.
Fan interaction is also an important element, both on stage and off. They participate in meet-and-greets before performances and often dance with audience members during the show.
"We want everybody to be up on their feet, moving in their seat, having a good time and to leave feeling inspired," said Julianne in a phone interview.
She says they haven't started rehearsing for "Move Live" yet because of their busy schedules. She's returning to judge on "Dancing with the Stars" and Derek will once again compete on the show. That means he'll juggle "Dancing" in Los Angeles with the "New York Spring Spectacular" at Radio City Music Hall.
"Trust me, nobody was more surprised than I was," said Julianne of that revelation. "I was like, 'Wait. What? You're going to be flying back-and-forth and we're trying to create a tour? Are you nuts?'"
Tickets for "Move Live on Tour" go on sale Friday.
