Figure skater John G. “Johnny” Weir has announced his upcoming Ice Dreams show will benefit Japan earthquake and tsunami relief.

Weir's Saturday, April 30 Ice Dreams show in Chicago suburb Bensenville will donate $1 of every ticket sold to the Japanese Red Cross in support of the relief effort. Proceeds from a silent auction will also be donated to the relief agency.

At Ice Dreams, Weir will be joined by skaters Agnes Zawadski and Jordan Moeller.

The show will also feature 100 young local skaters selected through live and web auditions.

“Performing with young skaters is great, because our fans are what keep us going,” the three-time U.S. National Figure Skating champion said in a statement. “It is our job to inspire young skaters and encourage them to follow their dreams on and off the ice.”

Weir has also partnered with fashion designer Tadashi Shoji to create a unique t-shirt to benefit the Japan earthquake relief. The shirt is available for order at or by calling 877-TADASHI.
