First Tour in South Africa for Riverdance


Early 2011 sees this enormous production of no less than 65 cast and crew featuring the remarkable Riverdance Irish Dance Troupe and a spectacular array of talent grace the stages of The Teatro at Montecasino, Johannesburg from Tuesday, 25 January 2011 to Sunday, 20 February 2011 and Cape Town’s Grand Arena at GrandWest Casino for just seven shows from Wednesday 23 February to Sunday 27 February 2011.

As a consequence of exceptional demand the show has recently been extended by two weeks, making its Johannesburg season a full three week run and an additional show has been added to the Cape Town season.

“This show is a mammoth not-to-be-missed entertainment experience which we are proud to stage in South Africa for the first time. During the past ten years, local audiences had the opportunity to see other Irish dance styled shows but never before have they seen Riverdance, the original and probably the most successful show of its kind to come out of Ireland in recent times,”

says Attie van Wyk, CEO of BIG Concerts International.

“The unbelievable precision of the dancers footwork is a sight to behold,”

adds van Wyk.

I first watched a television broadcast of the performance of the 1996 spectacular at Radio City Hall in 1997. Since then I have been hooked, hoping that one day I will have the opportunity to see the show live. I can’t wait for 28 January. I will be flying up to Johannesburg to see the show together with my brother. This will be a dream come true.
