5.0 star rating Maureen from Scranton, Pennsylvania


I had the privilege of experiencing Michael Flatley's Riverdance when it was performed in NY. This group of artists were absolutely amazing! I was blown away by a the music, the singing and most importantly, the dancing! Brilliant!

5.0 star rating Al H. from Charlotte, NC from Charlotte, North Carolina


I have been a fan of Riverdance since I first saw the version starring Michael Flatley on PBS many years ago. This is the first I have seen it live and all I can say is AMAZING. I give the cast 5 STARS for an excellent show. It is fun and they involve the audience in parts of the show. If you can, do take in a performance. I promise you will not be disappointed. The seats at the back of the auditorium are the best. Close enough to see well and far enough away to be able to take in everything that is happening on the stage.

I has sean Riverdance heard a go on tv and dae M. Flatley perform Lord of the Dance live. Just recently for 20th Anniversary tour of Riverdance live in Charlotte NC. Awesome show.

5.0 star rating Kathy Williams from Dallas, Texas


We saw Riverdance starring Michael Flatley in Las Vegas about 20 years ago. Absolutely captivating. I can say the same for this production. Superb talent. Great show for young, old, men, women. See it if you get a chance.

5.0 star rating Riva Bertram from Vancouver, British Columbia


Worth waiting 20 years to see it in person. Music, dancers and set decoration were amazing. It was difficult to concentrate in the quiet parts when the soloist was singing as we had a four year old boy sitting behind us in his father's lap. The child kept talking and kicking our seats. That almost spoiled the experience for us. A bit of advice for parents ... if your child cannot sit in their seat, keep quiet and enjoy the show, please leave them at home.

5.0 star rating from Houston, Texas


We took our 3 daughters, ages 9,8 and 5. Boy only did the performance rattle my very soul, the kids were UTTERLY entranced throughout the show. This is such a positive and fun experience. My daughter and nieces will always remember this lovely evening!

5.0 star rating Anita from Chicago, Illinois


We loved this performance. The talent was amazing. They did a great job of showing great musicians, dancers, set design and choreography. Loved everything. The drummer, the musicians, the dancers, the singers all were phenomenal. Highly recommend.

This show was absolutely money well spent. The dancers were all amazing and so talented it's pure magic to watch. The musicians and singers were also phenomenal. We loved it from the beginning to the very end.

5.0 star rating Elizabeth from Minneapolis, Minnesota


Marvelous entertainment. The entire performance is wonderful - the dancers, the back drops, the orchestra, high energy, creativity. The pace is phenomenal - performers extremely talented and anxious to deliver a flawless event. Excellent for all ages. Enjoyed the variety of selections. Are at Capitol Grill before the show which also was excellent.

5.0 star rating Jeff walker from Lockport NY


I've waited 2 years for this show. Bought tickets in 2020. It was one of the best experiences I've ever had. Absolutely a beautiful show. Absolutely will go again if they come back

5.0 star rating Barbara Sweesy from Minneapolis, Minnesota


I was very fortunate to go to riverdance. My daughter got me a ticket. Almost 15 years ago i saw the show in las vegas . It took my breath away! This show was excellent. I can still hear and feel the dancers shoes. It will always stay in your heart. The 3 female and drummer wonder. Please go and take your kids so they can experience the RIVERDANCE!!

5.0 star rating Steve Holcomb from Knoxville, Tennessee


Riverdance 25 US tour performance at Tennessee Theater, Knoxville June 24, 2022 proved to be the most enjoyable evening of entertainment I have experienced. The similarities between the Riverdance music and dancing and Appalachian music and clogging won enthusiastic audience identification and approval. It almost seemed appropriate for the extraordinary violinist/fiddler to play "Rocky Top". In addition to featured Irish dancing, there is a flamingo dancer, "Russian" dancers (mostly Ukrainian dancing), show stopping street tap dancing, vocal and instrumental sets and awesome sound, lighting and visuals. The audience should know hat there is a lot of soundtrack backing the very talented live instrumentalists. Most noticeable, the Knoxville show had no Irish bagpipe player. Attribute this to a scaled down touring cast. Even so, the live performance of Riverdance 25 US tour cannot be matched and is too good to miss.

5.0 star rating Katie Wayne from Orlando, Florida


Top notch talent from all involved. We really enjoyed the new lighting and background visuals. The gentleman who was drumming was incredible. The only thing I wished for was a male flamenco dancer to be partnered with the beautiful, female, flamenco dancer. Oh, and we were wishing that the wonderful tap dancers had tapped up and down the staircase. The theater itself is absolutely breathtaking. So glad to have such a venue in Orlando!

5.0 star rating Mary H from Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina


What an awesome performance at the Wilson Center in Wilmington NC. My husband and I saw it many years ago at The Wolf Trap Center in Northern Virginia, under the direction of Michael Flatley. So wonderful to see the 25th anniversary performance last night. What spectacular entertainment.

5.0 star rating John Kirby from Cincinnati, Ohio


Very High Energy Music and Dancing! We’ve seen the show 4 times in the last 25 years. The dancers and musicians are great. We had a couple with us, they were first timers at Riverdance. They loved the show. Can’t wait till it comes back to this area.

5.0 star rating David from Peoria, Arizona


What a great experience. Event staff were awesome. Thr production values were great. Performers top notch. Band and singers were excellent. We clapped and smiled and gave a much deserved standing ovation. So glad we went. Well done to all.

4.0 star rating Dennis Houlihan from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania


I was overall satisfied with the performances, the dancers, musicians and vocalist were outstanding. The backdrops were amazing and well done. My wife and I only complaint was that the show was a bit too much new age, and not enough of the Irish step dancing which Riverdance was famous for.

4.0 star rating Betty Warren from Jacksonville, Florida


I loved the show but there were several dances where th music was so loud it drowned out the tapping, which to me is what the show is about. One of these times was a big group and could not hear tapping.

2.0 star rating Anonymous from Vancouver, British Columbia


I grew up watching my VHS tape of Michael Flatleys Lord of the Dance. This is what I was expecting from this performance but boy was I disappointed. I realise the venue was smaller, but there was more to it then just that. The band/music was louder than the tapping for all the group performances, so you couldnt even hear it. There seemed to be a LOT of fillers- band, Spanish dancer etc. then there was the actual Irish Dancing performances. The few solos were amazing. But that's all I can say for it. Out of the 2.5 hour show, I would say we watched about 25minutes total of Irish dancing, and the rest was all filler.
