20th Anniversary Celebration Of Lord Of The Dance New Tour Opens In Liverpool
Exciting new show to visit 23 venues during UK Tour 2017
Michael Flatley’s spectacular Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games returns to the UK early next year, hot on the heels of a successful World Tour – and the 23-city major new national UK Tour will open in Liverpool this coming January.
Following a 2015 sold out UK tour, the talented cast embark on a nationwide tour between January and April 2017 to celebrate 20 years of Lord of the Dance. And the Liverpool Empire Theatre has been announced as the opening location to start the new nationwide tour.
Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games UK Tour 2017 is created, produced, choreographed and directed by Michael Flatley –and the show is set to wow audiences and dance fans alike in the city.
The original Lord of the Dance show premiered at the magnificent Coliseum in London two decades ago, and in 2014 Michael Flatley transformed the show making it even more thrilling than the original.
Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games with music composed by Gerard Fahy premiered at the iconic London Palladium in September 2014 to mark the milestone 20th anniversary since Michael Flatley became an international sensation.
The show has since gone on to enjoy hugely successful runs in the West End, Broadway, the US, Canada, Ireland, Germany, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand.
Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games UK Tour 2017 comes to the Liverpool Empire Theatre from Monday 9 January to Saturday 14 January for seven performances. Tickets are on sale now.
Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games continues to thrill audiences around the globe with its intoxicating mix of dance and music that fuses the traditional with the contemporary in a classic tale that showcases the exceptional talent of the cast.
The spectacle will feature 40 of the world’s most outstanding young performers directed by Michael Flatley, with new music by composer Gerard Fahy. This latest iteration combines the best of tradition with all the excitement of new music and dance.
And now, celebrating 20 years since the debut of the show, fans of the Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games extravaganza will be able to see Michael Flatley’s protégés James Keegan, Fergal Keaney and Matt Smith in the role of the ‘Lord’.
The new Michael Flatley DANCE Academy will be working in conjunction with the show to bring pop-up sessions to dance enthusiasts throughout the tour.
With all the precision and thrills of the original, Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games features new staging, new costumes and choreography, world champion acrobats, special effects lighting, dancing robots, and cutting edge technology including a giant Radiant flat screen that spans the width of the stage.
Michael Flatley comments: “Our fans in the UK have been incredibly loyal for the last 20 years and many of my talented dancers hail from diverse parts of the country. We have a world-class cast, many of whom will be performing in their home cities and I am delighted to be able to showcase their remarkable talent.”
