Lord of the Dance in 3D

The most successful dancer of all time is about to jump on the 3D bandwagon. With Hollywood heavily promoting 3D films in both theaters and on the Blu-ray format, Michael Flatley decided to release a Lord of the Dance performance in movie theaters worldwide, in 3D.  There is no word yet as to what show was recorded for this production, but inside sources have me guessing that last month’s performance in London was it.  Also, no release date has been provided either.  It’s safe to assume we will be able to watch this in 2011, though that’s a very wide 12-month range of speculation.  The full article can be viewed here at MichaelFlatley.com:


UPDATE:  This was shot from the London show and possibly one or more of the three Dublin shows from last month.  Also, it will premiere on 17 March, 2011 (St. Patrick’s Day).  I’m curious as to how widely distributed this will be here in the States.

    I emailed you the article about this from today’s Variety so you can find more information there. Also, he may be the most financially successful dancer, but I don’t know if I would say the most successful if you get what I mean.

    Thanks for the email, but no, I don’t get what you mean.

    I mean he’s made more money dancing than anyone else but that doesn’t necessarily mean he is the best dancer. I was just wondering how you defined “most successful.” It doesn’t really matter though.

    Too late! You started the ball rolling on this one 😉
    Hmmm…32 taps a second. Sounds pretty successful to me. But to say he’s the best, well, I steered clear of that one. That’s like asking who’s the best football player. You can’t compare a lineman to a running back, etc. You’ve got a thousand dance forms in the world so you can’t really say the best flamenco dancer is better than the best urban hoofer and so on…yadda yadda yadda.

    ” I’m curious as to how widely distributed this will be here in the States.” I’m sure you will go wherever for it 🙂

    I never said he wasn’t successful. I was questioning your use of MOST successful. You’re right it’s all moot because there are so many variations and skill sets required that it’s impossible to clearly choose one over the rest. Unlike The Empire Strikes Back’s superiority over the rest of the series. Or that Troll 2 is the worst movie ever made. 😉
