The production, subtitled Dangerous Games, which has already performed to sold-out audiences at the Playhouse Theatre in London and the Lyric Theatre in New York, will kick off its national tour at the BB&T Center in Florida and visit to major cities in the U.S. including Washington D.C., Philadelphia, Las Vegas and Los Angeles, among many others.

"I haven't performed in America for years and we are really looking forward to ending this tour and my time on stage with a bang!
Live Nation added “Live Nation is thrilled to be part of the North American dates on the exciting Lord Of The Dance tour as the legendary Michael Flatley embarks on his farewell tour. He is an incredible talent and an inspiration for artists around the world.”
