DWTS Pro Tristan MacManus Suffers Injury, Forced to Stop Dancing

Even Lucky Charms have unlucky days.

Dancing With the Stars pro Tristan MacManus recently suffered a knee injury and it’s keeping him off the stage at DWTS: Live in Las Vegas. According to the Tropicana box office (via, Tristan will not be part of the show’s extended run from July 9 to August 5.

Tristan reached out to his fans on Saturday, via the Tristan MacManus Fan Page:

“I’d like to thank everybody for their messages of support and well wishes. I had to wait to be sure before making any announcements but after talking to the doctors I was told that dancing is not an option for me for the next couple of weeks, I regret any disappointment, cause or inconvenience but unfortunately it’s the only option for me to recover. The great news is I don’t need surgery and I look forward to intense therapy and treatments to get me back as soon as possible. Slainte”

Well, it’s not what we’d want for Tristan, but hopefully he can get back to 100 percent in time for DWTS All-Stars this fall. Get well soon!
