Riverdance – The 20th Anniversary Tour Coming To The Blackpool Winter Gardens 2014
The Riverdance 20th Anniversary Tour will visit 16 venues across the UK, including a six-night run at the world famous Winter Gardens Opera House, Blackpool, on Tuesday 21 – Sunday 26 Oct 2014.
With an incredible two decades of global success since the show first burst into the public’s heart at the Eurovision Song Contest in Dublin in 1994, this is an un-missable chance for Blackpool audiences to reconnect with what the Irish Times rightly described as “…the original…the best”.
Producer of Riverdance, Moya Doherty, said: “The success of Riverdance across the whole world has gone beyond our wildest dreams, and the fact that the show continues to draw and excite audiences is a tribute to every dancer, singer, musician, staff and crew member who have dedicated themselves to the show.
“This 20th Anniversary Tour is a thank you to our UK audiences and a celebration of what has been an incredible journey across two decades.”
Composed by Bill Whelan, produced by Moya Doherty and directed by John McColgan, Riverdance has performed to more than 2.9 million people in over 1000 performances in 18 cities across the UK, and the show has never lost its magic. The worldwide TV audience for Riverdance is in excess of two billion people.
Riverdance is a celebration of Irish dance and culture, presented with sophistication and vibrancy and has received rave reviews across the world.
