'Goddess' Nadine Coyle set to reprise role in musical
Former Girls Aloud singer Nadine Coyle has returned to star in Michael Flatley's Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games show.
The Londonderry woman will be in its first 10 performances at the Dominion Theatre in London's West End.
Nadine (29) will reprise the role of Erin the Goddess for the limited run over the next 10 days.
When first cast by Flatley she said: "When we first met and Michael asked me to be part of the show, I couldn't believe it. I was on Cloud 9 - still am. To be here in the London Palladium singing Gerard's (Fahy's) songs, to be with such an amazing cast and crew, I'm just so delighted and just can't thank you enough Michael for the opportunity."
She also features on the soundtrack of the dance spectacular which features all the music from the stage show, including three original vocal tracks.
Nadine released her debut solo album in 2010 and will be releasing her second solo album later this year.
Dance legend Flatley will be making a "special appearance" in the show over the same 10 nights. He will also be performing at the Odyssey Arena in Belfast at the end of March and the 3 Arena in Dublin with Nadine joining him on the Irish dates.
Flatley's only other performances in the multi-date UK tour will be at the Brighton Centre from April 2-5, where the tour begins, and at the Wembley Arena on July 4, where the tour ends.
He will make way for new star James Keegan who will perform the title role in the West End.
Dangerous Games includes holographs, dancing robots, world champion acrobats and what is billed as the best team of Irish dancers in the world.
