A completely reinvented experience!

The completely reinvented Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus will take up a four day residence at Albany's MVP Arena this November. Known as 'The Greatest Show on Earth', Ringling Brothers brings incredible acrobatics, music and comedy during each performance.
Ringling Brothers returns after a six year hiatus. No longer is the circus featuring animals or clowns, it now focuses on the incredible abilities of its performers. Wes Williams, one of the performers, tells Yahoo News the show is something completely new: 

We're celebrating these people and how amazing they are. And then we're going to magnify that in a huge arena. I don't think you can call this a circus anymore — it's an experience.

The fall tour will feature:

  • Merry-Go-Round Stage
  • Triangular Highwire 
  • Criss-Cross Flying Trapeze 
  • BMX Stunt Bikes 
  • The Tallest Unicycle 
  • The Double Wheel of Destiny 
  • The Human Rocket 
  • Teeterboards

Show dates are November 8-11, with two shows scheduled for November 9th.Tickets go on sale Tuesday, February 20th at 10am via Ticketmaster
