It has been 25 years since Riverdance took the world by storm and they are celebrating by staging a massive celebration at 3 Arena, exactly 25 years to the day that the show first hit the stage at The Point Theatre.
On the 9th February 1995, Riverdance the Show premiered at The Point Theatre Dublin. The 7 minute Eurovision interval act performance which had wowed TV audiences across the world had become a full length stage show and from there set out on a journey that would see it tour the globe and achieve worldwide acclaim. To date Riverdance has been performed over 12,160 times and has been seen live by over 27.5 million people in 546 venues worldwide.
On 9th February 2020, there will be a special gala evening performance, which will be filmed, back where it all began, at 3Arena Dublin.
