It was exactly 30 years ago that Flatley received a standing ovation with his sensational dance performance during the break of the Eurovision Song Contest in 1994. The success has been unbroken ever since, Flatley broke several records worldwide, both in audience numbers and in dancing. In 1998, he entered the Guinness Book of Records for an incredible 35 steps per second. In addition, there were numerous awards for his shows and his recordings, and his video album "Lord of the Dance" went nine times platinum in Germany in 2001.
Even today, the combination of energetic dance at the highest artistic level and Celtic music, of entertaining story-telling and sensitive sensuality exerts a great fascination on the audience. On 20 April 2024, the famous clacking will be heard again in the Olympic Hall. Described by the Los Angeles Times as a "showpiece extravaganza", the show will transport the audience to another time with more than 150,000 taps per performance, to a place full of myths and magical fantasies. 40 of the world's best dancers in colourful costumes provide a thrilling performance, enhanced by a magnificent pyro show and innovative lighting effects.
