‘Move Live on Tour’ landed in Chicago, Illinois, on July 9 and performed what sounds like an absolutely AMAZING show! Many of our MOVE dancers commented on Instagram and twitter about the incredible audience. It really does make a different to them the amount of energy the audience gives…. the more you give them, the more they give back to us!!
But first, the cast & crew enjoyed a day off in Chicago and many went sightseeing based on their Instagram photos. One of Julianne’s best friends and Derek’s ex-gf, Nina Dobrev (The Vampire Diaries), surprised Julianne and Derek by attending their Chicago show, as well. Check out all the fun photos below!!

Check out this interesting interview that Derek did with AZ Central in lieu of their show in Phoenix, AZ, on July 20.
Q: How difficult is the show?
A: It’s extremely challenging. We’re in every single number. It’s pretty relentless.
Q: So how do you relax after that?
A: That’s the thing. I went straight from “Dancing With the Stars” to this show and then will go into my book tour (his first book, “Taking the Lead,” will be published in August). It’s momentum. It’s always good, to keep moving and keep going.
Q: What’s more pressure: Being judged on “Dancing With the Stars” or doing this?
A: I wouldn’t say there’s more pressure. There’s just more of a standard, if you know what I mean. I always hold a certain standard for myself, whether you’re playing for 6,000 people or 700 people. I always want to make sure I go up there and give the best performance I possibly can, and I want to get better and better.
Derek also started to promote his new book coming out on August 5th called “Taking the Lead: A Live Lived in Motion”. I cannot wait to read this book and learn what makes this guy tick! Haha! Make sure you pre-order the book here!
“It’s got a lot of stories from coaching my partners on Dancing With the Stars and talks about a lot of things people don’t know about me — some tough times, some amazing times, some triumphant times” – Derek Hough 💞 in love with the promo of @derekhough s upcoming book!! 🙌💕 #derekhough #takingthelead
Love the fan response from the Chicago show! Check all the great tweets, photos, and videos taken from last night. I also read that Derek, Julianne, Nina and other friends went to a nearby club after the show!
