Good evening from Taipei! #LordOfTheDance is no longer in quarantine, having transferred to a different hotel. It's a day off for the troupe -- a chance to stretch legs, decompress, and regather energies -- for the road ahead.
The rest of this Taiwan stadium tour is an absolute whirlwind. Starting roughly twelve hours from the time of this writing, the pace will be absolutely unrelenting.
For the parents, siblings, friends, relatives, classmates, etc. of the current Team Lord troupe: these young men and women are about to go on the rollercoaster adventure of their lives. A massive #FeetOfFlames tour is always special, but you know as well as we do just how high the stakes are this time. The schedule is jampacked and the eyes of the entire #IrishDance world are upon us. It's time for Planet Ireland to reawaken once again.
(Note: we're going to try to livestream as much as we can backstage, assuming the technology holds. If something goes wrong, we'll still be filming passively and releasing highlight clips.)
As this is a day off, we wanted to give you something special: here's Feet of Flames Taiwan 2009, featuring Michael Flatley, Bernadette Flynn, Aisling McCabe,and Kate Pomfret!
Lord of the Dance has a long history with Taiwan -- it's a truly amazing place to tour, and we love the fans here so much -- and this return to Taiwan, with everything going on in the world right now, is extra special.
Feet of Flames is a GO.
