Magic Mike strippers’ huge Melbourne tent

By AAP Newswire

The strippers of Magic Mike will perform in a huge tent next to Melbourne's Yarra River when the live show comes to Australia next year.

Hollywood star Channing Tatum was in Melbourne on Tuesday to announce the stage show based on his popular Magic Mike films will be performed in the world's largest Spiegeltent, which will be constructed along Birrarung Marr.

"We always dreamt of bringing it to Australia. The movies did so amazingly here, we knew we had to figure out how to raise our game," Tatum said in a statement.

The show will be performed in Melbourne from May, and other dates in Sydney, Brisbane and Perth.

The live show has already been performed in Las Vegas, London and Berlin.
