RIVERDANCE - The Farewell Tour is coming back to Ipswich, it has today been announced.

The show will play the Regent Theatre from Monday March 15 to Saturday March 20 2010.

David Mansfield, general manager at the venue said: “The Ipswich Regent Theatre is delighted to welcome back Riverdance.

“Their record breaking performances on their last visit helped Ipswich secure one of the prestigious places in the final release of dates of The Farewell Tour.

“On Riverdance's previous visit to Ipswich many customers were left disappointed when their performances entirely sold out so this will be a great opportunity to experience this spectacular production for the last time in the UK.”

Composed by Bill Whelan, produced by Moya Doherty and directed by John McColgan, the full-length show opened in February 1995 in the Point Theatre, Dublin and Riverdance has performed across the UK where it has been experienced by over 2.9 million people in well over 1000 performances in 18 cities.
