In an interview with ETOnline, Channing talks about his future plans of getting back on stage, "Oh, yeah!" he says. I'm getting closer to back in shape, but if I'm ever back in shape, I promised the Magic Mike cast of Vegas and London that I will strap on the old thong again." He wants to get a chance to perform while he's still in shape, "I gotta do it soon because this old body isn't gonna do what it used to do anymore," said the actor. Tatum has been one of the main reasons why the super hit film 'Magic Mike' released in 2012. The film was inspired by his own experiences as an 18-year-old stripper in Tampa, Florida. With the film being both a critical and commercial success, the sequel 'Magic Mike:XXL' released in 2015. The success of the franchise gave rise to the 'Magic Mike' live show in Las Vegas which is doing tremendously well.
Talking about what he wants fans to experience during the live shows, Channing says, "We want them to get up and have, like, a real tactile experience. "But as soon as you give them permission, that's what's crazy. We can't get them to sit down now!" The show is now moving to London where it will play five nights a week at London's Hippodrome Casino in Leicester Square. 'Magic Mike' has surpassed Tatum's expectations and is now bigger than he ever imagined, "I mean, it was a joke in the movie," he said of the show going global. "If you had told my 19-year-old self that I owned a strip club one day, I would have believed you more than if you had told me I would be an actor... Life's weird that way!"
