Dancer Michael Flatley's ailing legs will apparently be healthy enough for one last American tour.

The trailblazing former "Riverdance" star said Thursday he and his farewell show, "Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games," will strike out on the road and hit such cities as Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia, Dallas and Los Angeles after his stint ends on Broadway early next year.

Flatley's 17-city U.S. tour kicks off in Sunrise, Florida, on Feb. 19.

Flatley currently is starring in an eight-week engagement on Broadway at the Lyric Theatre that will run through Jan. 3.

The tour will mark his official retirement from dancing. He's said he's been suffering from spinal, knee, foot and rib pain -- the result of years of Irish step-dancing infused with tap and modern dance.
