The Broadway premiere of Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games, created, directed by and starring Michael Flatley, ends its scheduled limited run at the Lyric Theatre Jan. 3, and will head back out on tour, starting Feb. 19 in Florida.

The appearance, which will continue on the tour, is being billed as "his final onstage appearances as a performer following a remarkable 20 year run as the creator and star of the Lord of the Dance franchise." Fellow performers also include Morgan Comer, James Keegan and Cathal Keaney in the title role of the "Lord of the Dance."

The engagement was produced by Flately and Live Nation.
