Lord of the Dance Michael Flatley makes stage comeback

Lord of the Dance Michael Flatley has returned to the stage for the first time since he was hit by a mystery illness three years ago.

The dance star's comeback in eight sold-out shows in Asia — over six days — has earned him £13.3 million.

The multi-millionaire defied the years and a mystery virus that laid him low in 2006 to deliver his first showcase performances in more than three years last weekend.

Flatley and his troupe of 100 dancers sold out eight performances of Feet of Flames in Taiwan.

Flatley is now confident that further Asian tours will be secured. He has already received approaches to bring his show to Japan, Korea, Thailand and China.

Best of all for the Chicago-born dancer, he got the chance to show his son just how its done on stage — with Michael St James and his mother, Niamh, in the front row for the showcase performance in the Taiwanese city of Maioli.
