Promising all the visceral precision and thrills of the original, Lord Of The Dance: Dangerous Games features new staging, new costumes and choreography with special guest former Girls Aloud star Nadine Coyle, who joins the production as the Goddess Erin, performing brand new title track “Dangerous Games”.

With 40 outstanding young performers, the production will be directed by Michael Flatley, with new music by composer Gerard Fahy.

“I’m blown away by the remarkable talent and abilities of the great cast we’ve gathered,” says Flatley. “Coming to the West End is like coming home and the Palladium, with its magnificent stage, feels like the perfect fit for our show.”

With 200 plus dates planned across 15 countries over the next 18 months, a sneak preview of Lord Of The Dance: Dangerous Games can be seen in London’s Trafalgar Square on June 22, as part of the West End Live Festival; and a special one-off performance to launch the global arena tour will be held at the SSE Arena, Wembley on October 30 celebrating Lord Of The Dance’s unique record of highest number of tickets ever sold for a Wembley event.

The world tour will kick off at the SSE Arena, Wembley on October 30, followed by shows in Belgium, Israel, Scandinavia, Dublin, Belfast, and South Africa – with more dates to be announced soon – before returning to the UK for a nationwide tour next year.

Tickets for Lord Of The Dance: Dangerous Games at the London Palladium are priced at £25, £45, £55 (no booking fees). To book, visit or call the Palladium on 0844 811 0058.
