Details have been confirmed for the West End transfer of Channing Tatum's Las Vegas show, Magic Mike Live.

Based on the Hollywood star's hit 2012 film Magic Mike, which stars Tatum and Matthew McConaughey, the stage adaptation will open at the Hippodrome Casino in Leicester Square this November.

The film, directed by Steven Soderbergh, revolves around a 19 year-old who enters the world of male stripping and is loosely based on the experiences of Tatum.

Conceived and co-directed by Tatum, the live show opened in Vegas last year and sees audience members (aged 18 and up) enter Magic Mike's mythical nightclub, Club Domina, for a show that features strip and dance routines entwined with one-of-a-kind acts.

Posting on Twitter after announcing the transfer on the live final of Britain's Got Talent, Tatum – whose film roles also include 21 Jump Street, Step Up and Dear John – said "Get your [tickets] to the 1st #MagicMikeLDN shows… You never know what might happen!"
