Due to overwhelming demand, extra performances continue to be added to the UK Tour of Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games. The tour kicked off at the Brighton Centre on 2 April and will run until 4 July with a one-off performance at the Wembley Arena. The production will visit the Royal Concert Hall Nottingham from Thursday 28 – Sunday 31 May.
Flatley’s new show Dangerous Games has exciting and ground-breaking new technology, including holographs, dancing robots, world champion acrobats and the greatest team of Irish Dancers in the world. A new score composed by Gerard Fahy, new costumes and special effects lighting add a breath-taking new dimension to the original masterpiece.
The global phenomenon that is Lord of the Dance is bigger than ever in 2015, with Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games on a 200-plus date tour across 15 countries over the next 18 months. In the UK, the show is performing concurrently in London at the Dominion Theatre until 5 September and on the UK Tour until 4 July.
“My dancers are the real stars,” says Michael Flatley of his troupe of dancers, some of whom have been with the company for 10 years. He is immensely proud of their hard work and dedication. On the UK Tour, Morgan Comer stars as the Lord of the Dance with Tom Cunningham playing the Dark Lord.
Morgan Comer has been with Lord of the Dance since 2012 and recently starred in Dangerous Games at the London Palladium alongside Michael Flatley in 2014. He has previously won a number of titles, including the Great Britain Championships, British National Champions, three Ulster Championships, and, in 2010, he won his first World Championship.
Tom Cunningham has been with Lord of the Dance since 1997. He has won many major awards including several Ulster, British and North American championships, as well as runner-up places in the All-Ireland and World Championships. He has travelled the world with Lord of the Dance and notes performing with Michael Flatley at Madison Square Garden as a career highlight.
