Riverdance back after four years

Hit stage show Riverdance is to make a comeback to the UK for the first time in four years with a theatre and arena tour to mark its 20th anniversary.

The Irish dancing phenomenon, which has been a huge hit around the world, will visit 16 venues next year.

It launched a "farewell" tour of the UK in 2009 but will return in next September.

So far, no plans have been announced to include Northern Ireland in the tour. The fancy footwork first captured the public's imagination when it was showcased at the Eurovision Song Contest staged in Dublin in 1994.

Producer Moya Doherty said: "The success of Riverdance across the whole world has gone beyond our wildest dreams."

Riverdance has been seen by more than 2.9 million people in the UK. Further details of the tour at www.riverdance.com.
