Hit Broadway musical “Hamilton” is launching a second national tour across the United States, reports Playbill.

The second U.S. tour will launch with a six-week run in Seattle starting Feb. 6, 2018, before heading to Portland (Oregon), Salt Lake City, Costa Mesa, Las Vegas, Des Moines, Cleveland and Minneapolis.

It will be the fourth “Hamilton” production to play concurrently in the U.S., and will join incarnations of the show running on Broadway, in Chicago, and in a first national tour, which recently began performances in San Francisco before it heads to Los Angeles later this year.

A London production is also set to launch in the fall.

The success of the musical shows no signs of slowing down, with the Broadway production consistently playing to sold-out crowds and sales at premium prices recently hitting an all-time high. JB
