Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus is going back on tour with a "reimagined and reborn" show "without animals as a high-octane family event with highlight tricks, soaring trapeze artists and bicycles leaping on trampolines."
According to KTLA 5, the 75 performers from 18 countries will perform on a triangular high wire that's 25 feet off the ground, there will be crisscrossing flying trapeze artists, a spinning double wheel powered by the acrobats and BMX trail bikes, unicycle riders and skateboarders doing flips and tricks. The tour kicks off in Bossier City, Louisiana on September 29th and Feld Entertainment, who owns the "Greatest Show on Earth," says they have been working on the show over the past four years.
“We knew we were going to come back. We didn’t know exactly how,” says Kenneth Feld, chair and chief executive officer of Feld Entertainment. “It took us a long time to really delve in and take a look at Ringling in different ways. It became a re-imagination, a rethinking of how we were going to do it.”
