“magical, moving and utterly memorable” *****  The Arts Review. Feb 2020

Abhann Productions and Live Nation are proud to announce that Riverdance: The New 25th Anniversary Show will return to complete its tour of the UK. Everyone involved in the production is delighted that the show will be able to perform for all of those disappointed ticketholders the show will visit 27 venues from 27h August 2021 (see over for full dates).  It has been a huge task, but all the 2020 tour dates have successfully been replaced. Tickets from the postponed dates remain valid, and ticket holders have been contacted directly.  The last remaining tickets for the rescheduled dates are on general sale from or  New shows and additional venues have been added to the original tour routing to meet demand.

Riverdance: The New 25th Anniversary Show is a powerful and stirring reinvention of the beloved family favourite, celebrated the world over for its Grammy Award-winning music and the thrilling energy and passion of its Irish and international dance. Composer Bill Whelan has rerecorded his mesmerising soundtrack while producer Moya Doherty and director John McColgan have completely reimagined the ground-breaking show with innovative and spectacular lighting, projection, stage and costume designs and many of the cast for this rescheduled tour are so young that they were not even born in the year that the show first opened – 1995 at the Point Theatre in Dublin!

Moya Doherty said, “Every Riverdance tour fills audiences with excitement but the return of the show to the live stage, after the limbo caused by the pandemic, creates new levels of anticipation. These audiences have been starved of live content, performers have been starved of opportunity to dance, sing and play music and theatres have been starved of the lifeblood which live performance brings. But that very starving is the reason that the moment the curtain lifts the levels of exuberance, joy and creative celebration will never have been witnessed before. We cannot wait to hear once again the sound of the music and those dance shoes on stages across the country”.

The 25th Anniversary show completely immerse audiences in the extraordinary and elemental power of its music and dance. The reaction from the UK audiences in the handful of shows that did run before the tour was curtailed was unbelievable.

Now – just a little more than twenty-five years on! – both new and devoted fans of all ages will once again fall in love with the magic of Riverdance – the original, the best.

It is Riverdance, but not as you have ever seen it before.
