Lord Dances into Three NW Venues

Following Michael Flatley's return to Lord Of The Dance as part of its recent arena tour, the show returns to the region in the New Year without the great man himself.
For 14 years Lord of the Dance has been performed all over the world, playing to over 60 million people in over 60 countries in every continent. Flatley will be joined by a 40 strong cast, some of whom performed originally with Michael when the show debuted in 1996.

Michael was catapulted into stardom through the hit show Riverdance when he danced with Jean Butler. Since then, 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. 

The show visits the Liverpool Empire from 2 - 8 January, the Blackpool Opera House from 10 - 12 February and lastly the Manchester Opera House from 13 - 19 February.
