MICHAEL FLATLEY sold out twenty-one consecutive nights at Wembley Arena, as well as thirteen consecutive nights in New York’s Radio City Music Hall. He went on to appear at the legendary Madison Square Garden, and tickets sold out within days of going on sale in Australia. Remarkably, he then went onto break all known box office records in South Africa. The show completed an incredible six-year residency in Las Vegas and performed before an audience of more than one hundred thousand in a football stadium in Budapest, Hungary. Now, for the first time ever, fans and audiences around the world can enjoy watching the charismatic Michael Flatley dominate the stage, while experiencing the movie event of the year.
