Michael Flatley’s Lord of the Dance is coming to Manchester as part of a huge stadium tour celebrating 25 years of the show. Since its premiere, Lord of the Dance has been performed at 1,000 venues worldwide, but this time, it’s refreshing the classic elements of the show.

“I have the greatest team of dancers,” Flatley says.

He adds: “They are excited to be part of Lord of the Dance and every single one of them is trained to the highest standards of dance, athleticism and precision. I’m so proud of them.”

The show will premiere globally on St Patrick's Day in 2022 at the Eventim Apollo, London in aid of The Ireland Funds charity.

The show began as part of Michael Flatley’s dream to bring Irish dancing to a worldwide audience – starting with a performance at Eurovision in 1994.

It claims to transcend culture and language by captivating audiences with aerial moves, dancing and theatrical effects.

Flatley adds: “It’s hard to believe that we’re already celebrating 25 years of Lord of the Dance. I’m so proud of this show and what we’ve achieved.

“Over the years, we’ve had thousands of dancers from around the world be part of our story and I’m honoured to have been able to give them this opportunity to follow their passion.

“The incredible synergy between performers and audiences has been part of the magic for 25 years. We’re looking forward to this next tour as everyone deserves a positive and uplifting 2022!”
