Michael Flatley is set to perform at Donald Trump's Inauguration.

After much speculation it has been confirmed that the Riverdance star will perform for Donald Trump's inauguration.

TMZ reported this morning that Flatley's dance troupe would perform and a spokesperson for the Irish dancer has confirmed that the reports are true.

Speaking to RTÉ News a spokesperson for Flatley: "Michael Flatley is on his way to Washington where his dance troupe will perform at the inauguration ceremony for US President-elect Donald Trump."

The Lord of the Dance creator will participate in the Liberty Ball as part of Trump's official inauguration and join entertainers such as Travis Greene, Sam Moore and The Rockettes,

The Chicago-born performer announced his retirement in March 2015, saying his body has taken a "severe beating" throughout his 20-year career.

He will introduce his dance troupe at the event in Washington but it is believed that they will do most of the dancing.

Should he perform it will be his first big event since the death of his mother Eilish at the start of January.
