    DETROIT, April 12 /PRNewswire/ -- After a sell-out tour in Europe, Michael
 Flatley is bringing his "Feet of Flames" tour to the U.S.  The 18-city tour
 will stop at Detroit's Joe Louis Arena on June 19 (8 p.m.) for an exclusive
 one-night engagement.  Tickets for "Feet of Flames" will go on sale on Monday,
 April 23 at 10 a.m.
     "Feet of Flames" has been hailed by critics as the world's most dazzling
 and brilliant dance show and its creator -- the international, multi award-
 winning Michael Flatley -- has broken all the boundaries to produce a
 breathtaking combination of dramatic dance, haunting music and a great story
 on a truly magnificent scale.  This is an incomparable production with
 innovative and pioneering choreography, which takes dance to a totally new
 dimension.
     Joe Louis Arena is the perfect venue for "Feet of Flames," which is
 performed on one of the largest stages ever used in the world bringing the
 parameters of dance to a new level.  Amazingly, the dancers perform on three
 different levels of the 86 feet wide and 42 foot deep set offering an
 incredible visual that has never been seen before.
     "Feet of Flames," in the USA is the finale to Flatley's highly successful
 world tour, which has broken box office records in Japan, South Africa and
 Europe, plus is reputed to be his last ever tour.  Flatley will lead his 50-
 plus troupe through numerous precision dance moves that have never been
 performed on the stage.  Flatley also demonstrates the depth of his talent as
 he performs an exquisite flute solo during the show.
     This is the first time Flatley has appeared on stage in the USA since his
 13 hugely successful, successive sell-out shows at Radio City Music Hall in
 New York in 1997 and his appearance at the Oscars ceremony in the same year
 where he received a standing ovation.
     "I am thrilled to be coming back to the USA with 'Feet of Flames,'"
 Flatley says.  "My vision for this production was to create the biggest and
 the most spectacular show that has ever been seen and I am overjoyed at the
 audience response throughout the world.  I am thoroughly looking forward to
 touring the States and see this as a wonderful and exciting culmination of the
 world tour."
