Retirement is clearly not on the agenda for dance king Michael Flatley, who gave his new-found fans in Taiwan an early Christmas present last week with his first ever tour of the country.
Michael brought his electrifying “Feet of Flames” to Maioli City and sold out eight performances, netting $20 million in the process and thrilling more than 30,000 new-found fans. It’s been three years since he performed live on stage, but clearly the 51-year-old still has what it takes, as offers for more shows are pouring in from China, Japan and other Far East markets.
Michael’s troupe of more than 100 dancers and musicians impressed the mayor of Maioli so much that he ordered up a 15 minute display of fireworks to celebrate the occasion.
That must have pleased Michael’s young son Michael Junior to no end. The littlest Flatley, all of two years old, was in the front row watching his dad dance for the first time live.
