Cody Linley will join the tour for seven consecutive dates beginning Jan 22nd at St. Pete Times Forum in Tampa, FL, and to include the January 28th stop at RBC Center in Raleigh, NC. Nineteen year old Linley is the youngest star ever to compete on Dancing with the Stars and is best known for his role as "Jake Ryan" on the wildly popular Disney Channel series Hannah Montana, a role in which he was nominated for a Young Artist Award. He also helped the show garner an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Children’s Programming.

Cody’s film credits include My Dog Skip, HOOT, Miss Congeniality, and Cheaper By the Dozen. He also appeared in Disney’s award winning show That’s So Raven and during the world premiere opening of The Cheetah Girls 2 while conversing alongside hit Disney Channel celebrity, Brenda Song.

The fourth Dancing with the Stars tour features an entirely new ensemble of the most popular and exciting competitors from the hit ABC show, including celebrities Lance Bass, Toni Braxton and Maurice Greene from Season 7, as well as Marlee Matlin from Season 6. Joining the celebrities on tour will be some of the show’s most beloved and professional dancers including Mark Ballas, Cheryl Burke, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Derek Hough, Kym Johnson, Alec Mazo, Lacey Schwimmer, Edyta Sliwinska, Karina Smirnoff and Fabian Sanchez.

Samsung Eternity Presents: Dancing with the Stars – The Tour is once again produced by BBC Worldwide America, AEG LIVE and Front Line Management Group. The two-hour show features a larger-than-life recreation of the TV show’s actual stage and set design – complete with intimate, cabaret-style VIP table seating on the floor – that puts fans in the center of the action.
