Michael Flatley announces his return as Lord of the Dance
For a limited run commencing in autumn, 2010, Lord of the Dance starring Michael Flatley will play in venues throughout the UK, Ireland, Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Tickets for the UK dates go on sale on Friday 23rd April.
Flatley said, “I am very excited to dance again”. I’ve created many shows but Lord of the Dance has a special place in my heart and I haven’t performed in it since 1998.”
For 14 years Lord of the Dance has captivated audiences around the world, playing to over 60 million people in over 60 countries in every continent. Michael will be joined by a 40 strong cast, some of whom performed originally with Michael when the show debuted in 1996.
It is a phenomenal show and Flatley’s return to it has been hugely anticipated. He just completed a successful tour of Taiwan with ‘Feet of Flames’ that exceeded box office expectations and had audiences begging for more even after five standing ovations.
Michael Flatley was catapulted into stardom when he created, choreographed and produced Lord of the Dance after realising his lifelong dream of taking Irish Dance to another level by creating a spectacle that would break box office records in arenas and stadiums worldwide.
Lord of the Dance is a timeless story based on Irish folklore of good versus evil, and through the media of dance and music it is understood and appreciated by every culture; there is no language barrier. Dance has never been more popular and Michael¹s return to the stage promises not to disappoint.
“It will be different this time around” remarks Michael, “I've achieved my success and I’m proud of what I’ve done, this is like a victory lap. This time is for my loyal fans who have been there from the beginning.”
