Lord of the Dance Returning to Chattanooga in 2013
Lord of the Dance created by Michael Flatley returns to Chattanooga’s Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Auditorium for one performance only on Tuesday, February 12, 2013.
Tickets go on sale at 10:00am EST on Friday, November 16 online at www.ChattanoogaOnStage.com, at Memorial Auditorium box office, and by phone at (423) 642-TIXS.
Lord of the Dance created by Michael Flatley (LOTD) is the theatrical extravaganza that has helped catapult Irish dancing into the global spotlight. The show features more than 40 dancers who deliver an eloquent and stunning interpretation of one of Ireland’s most famous legends.
Described by the New York Post as "fascinating, rewarding and above all, entertaining," and by the Los Angeles Times as "a showpiece extravaganza," Lord of the Dance is a mesmerizing blend of traditional and modern Celtic music and dance. The story is a classic tale of good vs. evil based on old Irish folklore. It is also a passionate love story expressed through dance. The action is played out over 21 scenes on a grand scale of precision dancing, dramatic music, colorful costumes and state-of-the-art staging and lighting.
LOTD was conceived and choreographed by Creator and Artistic Director Michael Flatley—the American-born world Irish dance champion who originated the role of the Lord and was responsible for creating a new wave of Celtic dance mania. Flatley, who added fresh costumes, a visually stimulating set featuring an LED wall and revised lighting and set designs this year, still oversees all aspects of the production and the numerous LOTD troupes touring internationally.
The show made its debut performance in 1996 and quickly became the most popular touring dance production in history. More than 60 million people worldwide have seen Lord of the Dance in person at sold-out theaters, arenas and stadiums.
LOTD will perform for one night only at Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Auditorium. All seats are reserved from $27.50 to $47.50 plus convenience fees. Tickets go on sale at 10:00 am EST on Friday, November 16 at Memorial Auditorium box office, online at www.ChattanoogaOnStage.com, and by phone at (423) 642-TIXS.

STEPHEN COLBERT GUESTS ON LETTERMAN'S SHOW
NEW YORK (AP) -- It was old meets new on Letterman last night. Stephen Colbert (kohl-BAYR'), who will be taking over for the retiring David Letterman, was a guest on the "Late Show." It was Colbert's first appearance since CBS made the announcement. Colbert says he has a simple plan for his new job -- he's going to do whatever Dave does. That got a laugh from Letterman and the audience. Colbert revealed he was offered an internship decades ago on Letterman's old NBC show. Colbert says he didn't take it because the job didn't pay and New York is an expensive city. Colbert's new gig will start sometime next year.
