THE LADIES HAVE waited long enough, but it’s finally here – the opening weekend of Magic Mike XXL.

Ireland’s answer to Magic Mike, the Chain Gang’s, Six Pack, has been dancing with the group for over ten years.

Six Pack said one of the scariest things to happen to him while on stage was when a woman jumped on stage with a scissors.
