Chippendales began driving women wild in Los Angeles in 1979 as the first-ever all-male dance troupe. Quickly, they became a pop culture phenomenon, opening a club in New York and producing touring troupes that traveled across the world. Their act is consistently touted for offering the greatest, most heart-pounding performances cultivated specifically for women. Today, the show’s flagship company plays nightly at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas and features celebrity guest stars, such as supermodel, Tyson Beckford, who is currently headlining the production. The touring company travels the world, pleasing the masses and bringing the party to the people.

Over the last 35 years, the men of Chippendales have performed for more than 100 million women in over 100 countries. They’ve traveled more than 6.7 million miles while touring, and on that long, hard journey, they have torn off over 1.2 million shirts, worn 56,000 bowties, and have been photographed more than 70 million times. The number of women who felt they “melted inside” remains incalculable, but it’s definitely a lot. The famous Chippendales calendar became the first all-male calendar targeted to women, has sold more than 10 million copies worldwide, and has been printed in over nine languages.

Named “the most-wanted men in Vegas” by ET’s “The Insider,” Chippendales captures the perfect balance of tasteful teasing and unbridled sex appeal. The high energy, fully choreographed, interactive show features some of the most physically elite men in the world. They know just how to flirt with and entice birthday girls, bachelorettes, and any party girls looking to have fun. In March 2015, for the fourth consecutive year, Chippendales was named the “Best Male Strip Show” by the Las Vegas Review Journal’s prestigious “Best of Las Vegas Awards.” Annually, the Men of Chippendales will be seen by almost two million people worldwide.

The cast, a very exclusive fraternity with only 20 members, is split across two productions – one based in Las Vegas at Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino and the other currently selling out venues around the world. Currently, the Vegas cast welcomes celebrity guest host and supermodel Tyson Beckford. This encore performance comes after a sold engagement with Beckford last spring. Beckford is a crowd pleaser; even Mariah Carey couldn’t resist his sultry moves when she was brought on stage.

The Chippendales recently celebrated their 35th Anniversary as a brand and as one of pop culture’s sexiest icons. The guys have been featured on numerous national television shows, including the Emmy Award-winning CBS series “The Amazing Race,” “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” and “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” among many others.

Previous celebrity guest hosts featured in the Las Vegas production include “Beverly Hills 90210” and “Sharknado” star Ian Ziering, as well as Joey Lawrence. The buzz around who will be the next Chippendale is a fan favorite, and Chippendales invites them to take to social media to vote for which sexy celeb they want to see next.
