Riverdance is heading back to Newcastle to celebrate 30 breathtaking years

Since Riverdance first emerged onto the world stage, its fusion of Irish and international dance and
music has captured the hearts of millions worldwide. The Grammy award-winning music and the
infectious energy of its mesmerising choreography and breathtaking performances has left audiences
in awe and established Riverdance as a global cultural sensation.

To celebrate this incredible 30th year milestone, Riverdance will embark on a special anniversary
tour in 2025, bringing its magic to Utilita Arena Newcastle.

This spectacular production rejuvenates the much-loved original show with new innovative
choreography and costumes and state of the art lighting, projection and motion graphics. And for the
first time Riverdance welcomes ‘The New Generation’ of performers, all of whom were not born
when the show began 30 years ago.

John McColgan, Director of Riverdance said “It is both a privilege and a delight to celebrate 30 years
of Riverdance and the unique journey it has taken us on. In those 30 years the show has
transformed from a spectacle into a global cultural phenomenon – continuously evolving yet
remaining true to its Irish roots. On this upcoming tour we look forward to welcoming ‘The New
Generation’ of artists while paying tribute to the talented performers, creators, dedicated crew, and
the millions of fans who have made Riverdance a worldwide celebration of music and dance.”

Audiences will enjoy a unique and memorable performance which blends the traditional and the
contemporary, showcasing the skill and passion of the world-class of dancers, musicians and singers
in the Riverdance ensemble.

Composed by Bill Whelan. Produced by Moya Doherty. Directed by John McColgan.
