Flatley’s famous feet immortalised at Wembley Park

Flatley’s famous feet immortalised at Wembley Park

London, 18 June 2015. Lord of the Dance, Michael Flatley, is returning to Wembley, not only for his last ever UK performance on 4th July, but also to immortalise his world record-holding feet, in a cast outside The SSE Arena at Wembley Park.

The world-renowned Irish Dancer set a record breaking run of 21 consecutive shows at London’s legendary Wembley Arena in 1998 and holds the Guinness World Record for a staggering 35 taps per second.

Now Flatley’s famous feet will forever have a place in the ‘Square of Fame’ outside the SSE Arena, amongst the hand prints of other stars including Madonna, Kylie Minogue, Bryan Adams, Lionel Richie and Dolly Parton.

Michael said: “It’s a privilege to have my feet, so integral to what I do and who I am, immortalised here at Wembley Park which has such a rich entertainment heritage.”

“It is the only fitting venue for my final UK performance of Lord of the Dance.”

Matt Slade, MD of Wembley Park, the transformed area around the SSE Arena and National Stadium commented, “To have people like Michael Flatley leaving their mark here at Wembley Park speaks volumes about the significance of Wembley as part of our national heritage. Generations have come to Wembley Park for entertainment and we’re honoured to be hosting Michael’s last UK performance here at the SSE Arena.”

Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games, with a special appearance by Michael Flatley, will hold its last UK tour performance on Saturday 4th July at 8pm at the SSE Arena, Wembley Park, though the London production, starring James Keegan and Matt Smith, will continue at the Dominion Theatre until 5th September.
