Michael Flatley will perform on British TV for the first time in over a decade in a new ITV special celebrating 20 years of the world-renowned dancer.
20 years after Flatley burst onto the worldwide stage after performing at the 1994 Eurovision Song Contest, the performer will take to the stage once more for Michael Flatley: A Night To Remember.
Host Christine Bleakley will go down memory lane with Flatley, from his first taps in Chicago to becoming the highest paid dancer in history. His choreography for Riverdance, which he famously performed during the interval of Eurovision in 1994, earned him a legion of fans around the world and a place in the Guiness Book of Records when he performed 35 taps a second.
Former Girls Aloud star Nadine Coyle will take to the stage to peform the title song for Michael’s new show, Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games. Coyle features in the new show as The Goddess Erin.
“The last 20 years have been an extraordinary journey for me and I am honoured that ITV are celebrating my story along with so many friends and colleagues. I’m very much looking to performing with my dancers – a hugely talented group of young people and the stars of the future – for what promises to be a very special night.” – Michael Flatley
