Sensational comeback for Michael Flatley to 'Lord of the Dance'


Michael Flatley

Michael Flatley, creator of the “Lord of the Dance”, will take to the stage with his show for the first time in 12 years. The short tour will bring the show to UK and Europe for a “victory lap” later this year.

Flatley has made his fortune from the show, which has played to more than 60 million people in over 60 countries over the past 14 years.

A 40-strong cast of dancers, some of whom originally preformed with Flatley in the 90s, will take part in the show. The “Lord of The Dance” show evolved from Flatley’s work on “Riverdance”, made famous by the 1994 interval performance at the Eurovision Song Contest in Dublin.

Having retired from his role in “Lord of the Dance” in 1998, Flatley is happy to rejoin the show. “I am very excited to dance again. I've created many shows but “Lord of The Dance” has a special place in my heart,” he said.

"It will be different this time around. 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."

Flatley’s new show “Feet of Flames” has just completed a successful tour in Taiwan.
