Performances of world-renowned dance show Lord of the Dance will take place in the city. 

The dance phenomenon will return to Glasgow’s Royal Concert Hall from Friday, August 30 to Sunday, September 1.

Celebrating the 25th anniversary of Lord of the Dance in 2022, Michael Flatley’s production has reached over 60 million people in 60 countries on every continent across more than 1000 venues.

Glasgow Times:

The Irish dancing icon is currently updating the show for a new generation of fans.

Flatley said: “The magic of Lord of the Dance lives on in the hearts of our audience, and I am thrilled to bring this iconic show back to the UK in 2024.

“It’s a testament to the enduring power of dance and the indomitable spirit of the human soul.”

He added: “Our 2024 tour promises to be an extraordinary journey that will take audiences to the next level once again.

“In 2024, this extraordinary experience for fans will feature new staging, fresh choreography, new costumes, cutting-edge technology, and special effects lighting.

“It’s a celebration of a lifetime of standing ovations and we aim to leave the audience spellbound.”

Glasgow Times:

The Los Angeles Times described Lord of the Dance as a “showpiece extravaganza”, transporting the audience to a mythical realm.

The show features over 150,000 taps per performance, a display of precision dancing, artistic lighting and pyrotechnics.

Inspiration for the production started with Flatley’s dream to create the greatest Irish dance show in the world.

Earlier this year, Flatley was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer.

In a statement at the time, it was revealed that he had undergone surgery and was in the care of excellent doctors.

Always determined to overcome adversity and “never give up on his dreams," Flatley will take this run of shows to the next level.
