Julianne Hough has been forced to cancel her 2024 Dancing With The Stars tour appearances following scheduling conflicts.
In a statement shared to the official DWTS tour Instagram page, the 35-year-old performer — whose brother is Derek Hough — said, ‘I’ve been so looking forward to getting to connect with all our amazing fans on the road and perform live alongside the DWTS Tour cast for select dates; however, due to a change in my production shooting schedule, a conflict has come up.’
The Instagram Story message was shared on Friday, and continued: ‘I will no longer be able to join the tour for my scheduled dates.’
In white font set against a sky blue background, the note went on, ‘I love our DWTS community and I’m devastated to miss seeing you all in person, but I can assure you that this cast is delivering an unforgettable show that you won’t want to miss.’
The blonde beauty signed off with her first name.

Hough originally planned to appear in the production for a limited number of dates on the new tour.
She did not reveal what project has come in conflict with the tour dates.
The DWTS tour kicked off in Richmond, Virginia, on January 11, with Emma Slater hosting.
Other performers in the live event include Alan Bersten, Brandon Armstrong, Alexis Warr, Ezra Sosa, Daniella Karagach, Artem Chigvinstev, Gleb Savchenko, Rylee Arnold and Pasha Pashkov.
Jenna Johnson and Val Chmerkovskiy are also along for the January and February dates.
And season 32 winner Xochitl Gomez, plus contestants Charity Lawson and Harry Jowsey will show up for select tour stops.
Hough rejoined the long-running dance competition series last season as she hosted alongside Alfonso Ribeiro.
Speaking to Variety last August, she raved, ‘The friendships that are made here are lifelong. It feels like it’s just gonna be, like, a peek into our friendship and our lives.’

She added, ‘With this season specifically, we are all so close. We’ve been friends for over 10 years.’
‘It feels kind of nostalgic, like, the band is back together.
‘It feels like we’re in the older seasons of Dancing With The Stars, with the wisdom and the knowledge of all the years of experience, but with the sense of nostalgia and home from the earlier seasons,’ the dancer described.
Julianne replaced model and media personality Tyra Banks as host.
