The Tour will showcase gymnasts from the 2012 and 2016 Olympic Games, along with well-known names from the sport.
"This is going to be the best show we have ever produced," said Steve Penny, president of USA Gymnastics.

This will be a special opportunity for fans across America to see the USA’s best-known and well-loved gymnasts."
