Chips Are Frying At The Ikon

A Coventry nightspot will get the pulses of the city’s women racing after being chosen as a tour stop for a real life version of The Full Monty.

British ChippendalesThe British Chippendales are currently embarking on a full tour of the UK and will be strutting their stuff at SkyDome-based Ikon Superclub on Thursday 2 August.

The four dancers have previously worked with their American counterparts and regularly travel to Europe and beyond to woo the ladies.

SkyDome manager Ian Knight said the 2,400-capacity venue had jumped at the chance of playing host to the country’s leading male review.

He said:

“We have had a sports model of the year competition at the club which allowed some of the country’s best looking women onto the Ikon catwalk - we felt that we should even up the balance.

“The British Chippendales are one of the most popular acts of this kind in Europe and only appear at big venues because of their popularity.

“The UK tour has proved hugely popular for them and we are delighted to be hosting the Midlands performance.

“I am sure the ladies of Coventry will turn out in force - I have noticed that several of my female staff have already put themselves down for the night off on the rota!”

A spokesman for Big Bang Management, the company responsible for taking the tour round the country, believes Ikon will prove a perfect venue for the show.

He said:

“The atmosphere and capacity of the SkyDome clubs should ensure that it is great fun, the British Chippendales are looking forward to appearing in Coventry.

“There are several acts of this kind but these are widely accepted as the genuine article – so far the UK tour has been hugely successful.”
