In 1998, Michael Flatley's Lord of the Dance sold out 21 consecutive nights at Wembley. That record stands to this day.
However, unless you were physically there, you've had to imagine what that epic run of shows must have been like -- until now.
This is an ultra-rare fan bootleg from Wembley 1998, showing Michael Flatley performing Warlords. Because audience photography wasn't allowed in the building, this is not a professional, high-definition video; this is a grainy VHS transfer of a fan bootleg filmed over 22 years ago at the time of this writing. And yet there's still something amazing about seeing this footage, isn't there? The performances are simply electrifying. *That* is the magic of Lord of the Dance: the magic is real.
Until today, only a few fans from the OG era of the LOTD Visitors' Book have ever seen this. Now we come full circle, with the VB posting content onto the show's social media. Because this show has always had a special connection with its fans, and this is for you.
The magic is real.
