Presented by Glaceau vitaminenergy(TM) - your natural energy source! - and promoted by AEG Live, the tour arrives hot on the heels of the top-rated smash MTV program, which attracted more than 11 million fan votes last week and recently won the Teen Choice Award for Best Reality Dance Show as broadcast on FOX TV. Beginning in Miami on September 18th, 2008 and running for five weeks across the country through October 23rd in Houston, TX, the tour will feature five of the hottest dance crews from the show's first two seasons as they battle it out, live on stage each night.
