Oh, Riverdance, The Pipes, The Pipes are Calling

1996 just called. It misses you, wants to hang out again. It’s been awhile, but why wouldn’t you want to go another round with the year that brought you Dolly, the cloned sheep; the first female secretary of State; Sean Connery in The Rock; and the LORD of all that is good and mighty — The Lord of the Dance, Riverdance. Well, relive it all one last time, the memories of your beloved ’90s flooding o’er your heart, as Riverdance makes its final appearance in Dallas during three shows Tuesday and Wednesday at The Music Hall at Fair Park, 909 1st Ave. Ireland’s pride has been tapping its way across the nation since its American debut at Radio City Music Hall in 1996, and while most of the performers are Irish nationals, Dallas native Michael E. Wood has landed a solo tap/song number on this farewell tour. Tickets are on sale now and range from $35 to $65 at Ticketmaster. Call 1-800-745-3000 or visit ticketmaster.com to order.
