Lord Of The Dance Is Back!

Oh boy. Now what possible reason is there to bring back these shenanigans?

Get ready to see some flailing legs, Brits, because Lord Of The Dance creator Michael Flatley is back to reprise his role in the famous show for the first time in 12 years.

Calling it his "victory lap," Michael is looking forward to bringing the production to the UK as soon as this fall for all his "loyal fans." Once he is done in Britain, he intends to tour around Europe.

So far, no word yet if he'll be skipping on over the pond to treat America to his, um, talents, but we really feel like he should just stick to one continent. Really, don't stretch yourself out Michael.

Seriously, we've had enough!

    I could only watch this shit if someone paid me to, and only after a few big ole fat joints, free of course.
    Anyway, only schoolgirls, or effeminate schoolboys … should dance this shit, looks waaaay too funny when grown men do it.



  2. 2

    I don't even know what to say about that picture.



  3. 3

    Lord of the Dance is touring Canada right now!



  4. 4

    And the US!



  5. 5

    Yeah I thought the guy was a loser until I saw his mansion and found out that is worth $500 million.

    Speak for yourself idiot. For some of us this type of dance is part of our culture. If someone said such a thing about your precious Cuba and its cultural music and dance you would be screaming racism. Fucking hypocrite.



  7. 7

    He's amazingly talented, but there are so many good dancers now, compared to his heyday 15 years ago.



  8. 8

    LOOKS KINDA GAY …..



  9. 9

    I'd like to see you do his kind of dance. You would fall all over yourself. So shut your pie hole and leave the dancing to those who can. And does not mean you.



  10. 10

    maybe if you did irish dance you would shed some pounds from your fat frame. i'd love to hear what you would say if someone criticized cuban dance or whatever the fuck it is that they do down there. granted, what flatley does isn't totally true to traditional irish dance but i doubt you knew that when you knocked it.

    Flatley is wonderful! I can't imagine that he's still got the chops/energy after 12 years, but bring him on. I can't wait to see him.

    Re: @v@ – Well, isn't that what we all do?

    I saw Lord of the Dance as part of a theatre package here in Toronto (Canada). I did not think that it would be at all entertaining (not my thing)…but I was wrong. It was one of the highlights of theatre last year….no kidding, and I'm picky!

    I watched him perform back in the nineties.. was third row. He was amazing, practically tore a hole through the floor with his moves. So unless you have actually seen him perform, you have no right to judge in the slightest.

    Re: obamarama09 – I hope you're responding to ShoeWhore and not to coqi, as coqi has the most intelligent post thus far.
    (If not, bring it.)

    I watched a minute if Doc about this dude, because I fell asleep shortly after, but he said he has to have sex immediately after each show, as his grand finale…haha i thought that was funny…he dances into their pantses!!



  20. 20

    This fucking lord of the dance/river dance was one of the WORST phases in human history!



  21. 21

    Michael Flatley is Irish, not British, he will be touring IRELAND, then Britain, two completely different places!



  22. 22

    You can n-e-v-e-r get enuf of that stuff!



  23. 23

    oink oink



  24. 24

    Short men irritate me, so when I accidentally bumped into him, he tried hitting on me. I laughed at this 'strange midget' and walked away. He made $700 million prancing around the world like that. Who's laughing now. Shoulda fucked him and sold my story. PS: Shoewhore that's so funny! LOL

    Re: Naoimhy – Yeah I agree, Perez this s a couple of times you have done this now. Just for your information. Ireland and the UK are two separate places. Im surprised he's doing this still I thought it was looong gone



  26. 26

    you do realise that Michael Flatley is IRISH, lives in IRELAND ie. separate to BRITAIN.
    also, insulting irish dancing is disrespectful to my culture and heritage…..its as bad as if i took a fucking us flag and started burning it. have some respect for other nationalities, just because you live in a country that only has a recent history and doesnt exactly go back thousands of years as far as civilisation is concerned is no reason to be pig ignorant!!
    he's more famous than you will ever be and has more talent in his fingernail than you'll ever develop in your entire fat body.

    Michael, and his troupe, are very talented dancers. He was the first to put a more "modern" spin on a dance that is very hard to master. Irish dance is beautiful and a grand celebration of wonderful culture and people. Michael went through a lot of crap, but has come out the other side a better person. I had the honor of meeting him a couple times and he is a lovely person and has always been very kind to his fans. In fact, he is one of the nicest celebrities I've every met. I hope he is happy with his wife and child and I can't wait to see him dance again.



  28. 28

    Eat Shit Asshole….I'd rather have him in Connecticut than you and Mario Lopez. (Wouldn't pay 25 cents to see you) The man is 50 years old, more talented, energetic and good looking than you can ever hope to be….oh yeah, and RICH!!!!!!



  29. 29

    I've seen the celtic dances with another guy,then i saw Michael Flately-dude was on fire! Best there is.



  30. 30

    Michael Flatley is AMERICAN, born on the south side of Chicago to Irish parents. His sister lives in my neighborhood. He also donates a lot of money to Elim Christan School for the profoundly mentally challanged is is reputed to be a great guy.



  31. 31

    MICHAEL FLATLEY IS THE BEST!!! I'd like to see Perez's fatty ass try to do the jig.



  32. 32

    Re: Althy – the REPUBLIC of ireland and the united kingdom are seperate, northern ireland is in the uk but not britain, dont correct people if youre not even right



  33. 33

    Seriously, we've had enough! — if only you could follow your own advice. We've had enough of you and the spew from your pie hole.

    Unfortunately, it looks like he's had a face-lift. 50 is too young for that. You can always tell and it rarely looks good.



  35. 35

    You know what Perez, fuck you! Seriously. Michael is super talented and brought Irish dancing to the forefront of entertainment, instead of just Irish competitions.
    Good for him that he is doing it again. If it's not your cup of tea, that's fine. Not everyone likes Lady Gaga.
    You are an idiot and jealous of anyone who makes it.

    Re: Mancunian – Yes I know, forgive my colloquialism. I meant Republic of Ireland, just to clarify.



  37. 37

    Re: Mancunian – no they are right ireland is ireland and england is england,not the irish' fault the fucking brits wont fuck out back to there own country.the person correcting was not wrong your a moron.



  38. 38

    the longest running most successful dance show in the world ever and your fat ass has the cheek to tell them to piss off,what a joke perez,just because you have no real culture.your a fucking joke man.
