The Riverdance 20th Anniversary Tour will visit 16 venues across the UK, including a six-night run at the Winter Gardens Opera House, Blackpool.

An incredible two decades of global success will be celebrated in the resort next year.

Having burst into the public’s heart at the Eurovision Song Contest in Dublin in 1994, this is an unmissable chance for Blackpool audiences to see this legendary dance show.

Producer Moya Doherty said: “The success of Riverdance across the whole world has gone beyond our wildest dreams, and the show continues to draw and excite audiences.

“This tour is a thank you to our UK audiences and a celebration of what has been an incredible journey.”

Composed by Bill Whelan and directed by John McColgan, Riverdance has been seen by more than 2.9 m people across the UK, and the show wholly retains its magic.

The worldwide TV audience for Riverdance is in excess of two billion people.

Riverdance will run at the Winter Gardens Opera House from Tuesday October 21 to Sunday October 26 2014.

Tickets are now on sale and cost £27 to £43.50 (booking fee may apply)
