MOST ELECTRIFYING EDITION OF THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH COMING TO CHICAGO
Megawatts of thrills explode as THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH continues its Chicago performances November 16-27 at Chicago’s United Center.
Fueled by excitement-boosting performance power, Fully Charged is filled with amazing acts, including Talayara, a dynamic animal trainer whose rare ability to communicate with animals allows him to stand eye-to-eye with a dozen ferocious tigers, ride rearing stallions at a fully-charged gallop, and orchestrate majestic 4-ton Asian elephants in a symphony of dance.
Other highlights include the strongman duo of Dmitry & Ruslan and the fearless Fernandez Brothers, who attempt a 360-degree flying forward somersault atop spinning 3-story-high steel wheels, a feat so difficult it has only been attempted by one other person in the 141-year history of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus.
In a fitting finale to this super-charged spectacle, The Human Fuse, Brian Miser, sets the arena sky ablaze as he rockets through the air from his self-made human crossbow, traveling 110 feet at 65 miles per hour.
Audiences are encouraged to come an hour before show time to the All Access Pre-show – FREE to all ticket holders – and meet the world’s greatest performers and animals, learn some circus skills, and work to become CircusFit, all before the show even starts!
Fully Charged provides hours of thrilling entertainment that is fun for the whole family for about the price of a movie ticket. A great value in family entertainment, Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus is Ticketmaster’s Number One most purchased family event. Tickets starting at $13 are available through Ticketmaster and the Allstate Arena and United Center Box Offices, by calling 1-800-745-3000, or by visiting www.Ringling.com.
