Riverdance star Michael Flatley announced last week that he will hit the road one last time.
"We have heard requests from our fans across the country who could not make it to New York to bring the show to them and we have decided to do a small tour of the U.S.," Flatley said in a statement. "I haven't performed in America for years and we are really looking forward to ending this tour and my time on stage with a bang!"
Flatley currently is starring in an eight-week engagement on Broadway at the Lyric Theatre that will end on Jan. 3.
The 17-city tour will mark Flatley’s official retirement from dancing. Years of Irish step-dancing has taken a toll on the 57-year-old, who said he’s been suffering from spinal, knee, foot and rib pain.
Flatley’s final tour will kick off in Sunrise, Florida, on Feb 19, and will make stops in Georgia, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Illinois, Missouri, Texas, Colorado, California, Arizona and Washington, D.C., before it ends on St. Patricks's Day at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
