Events: Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus

By Maija Zummo · March 2nd, 2009 · CityBeat Recommends
The Greatest Show on Earth goes “Over the Top” with its latest tour coming to U.S. Bank Arena Wednesday-Sunday. This wacky spectacular features more than just your standard animals and acrobatics. There will be flying dogs, hopping Asian elephants and a man facing off against a Bengal tiger.

There will be double-decker trapeze acts, Chinese acrobats, high-wire cycling and seven members of the Torres family will be racing less than 4 inches apart from each other on motorcycles in a steel globe. And even though this new show has been revamped to provide some edge-of-your-seat thrills, rest assured that you’ll still see the circus’ classic clowns as their pratfalls are written into almost every act. $14.50-$85.
