Season four Dancing with the Stars champ Apolo Ohno will join the live summer tour generated by the hit ABC show, it was announced Tuesday.

"After the show I started training again for the Olympics but realized quickly that I couldn't go on without at least one more week of Samba," Ohno, 25, said in a statement.

The two-time Olympic speed-skating gold medalist, along with partner Julianne Hough won the competition on Dancing in May, when he declared, "I feel amazing."

His appearances on the tour will only be in five select cities, starting in Raleigh, N.C., on Saturday. He'll also show up in Hershey, Pa., on July 2; Bridgeport, Conn., on July 3; Wilkes Barre, Pa., on July 5 and Atlantic City, NJ, on July 6. 6th.

Dancing contestant (and Cheers veteran) John Ratzenberger will also make a guest appearance in his hometown of Bridgeport. (A complete schedule of tour stops appears on the Web site for Dancing With the Stars, The Tour.)

Other stars who are currently on the Dancing tour include, Joey McIntyre, Joey Lawrence, Drew Lachey and Joey Fatone, who has signed on to host a karaoke-themed game show on NBC, which starts July 9.
