'Riverdance: The 20th Anniversary World Tour' to make Philly stop

Irish dance is coming to The Academy Of Music

International Irish dance show "Riverdance" will be in Philadelphia at The Academy of Music beginning on June 14. The Philly performances are part of the production's 20th Anniversary World Tour. 

In the past 20 years, over 25 million people in over 465 venues worldwide have seen "Riverdance" live. Traditional Irish dancing and music gets a modern twist in the production that exposes audiences to a slice of Irish culture -- jigging is not reserved solely for St. Patrick's Day!
