Lord of the Dance at The Palace
I think I actually remember 16 years ago (I was 12) when Lord of the Dance first came out. I remember those fast-paced dancing commercials and of course a shirtless Michael Flatley.
Well, they're coming to the Capital District on Wednesday, March 28.
I have yet to see them....mainly because Flatley's hairy chest kinda scares me. But, now that he's retired....maybe I will.
(from a release)
Sixteen years ago, Michael Flatley created and launched Lord of the Dance (www.lordofthedance.com); today, it is selling out arenas and theatres as the world’s highest grossing Irish dance show. Generations of audiences - more than 60 million people from 68 countries - have seen Lord of the Dance. Presented by MagicSpace Entertainment and Global Entertainment Group, the tour arrives in Albany at the Palace Theatre on March 28. Tickets can be purchased at the Palace Box Office and all Ticketmaster locations, charge by phone 1-800-745-3000 or online at Ticketmaster.com
Speaking about the show’s updates, Flatley says, “We have fresh wardrobes and an exciting new set featuring elements from the successful international tour I performed in last year – we sold out more than 20 dates in the UK. Fans will see technological highlights like video incorporated into an LED wall, as well as a number of changes to the overall lighting and set designs.” Flatley, who retired from dancing in 2011, is Artistic Director of Lord of the Dance and oversees all aspects of the production
