Roll Up! Roll Up!

Come one, come all... the Ringling Brothers Circus is rollng into town at Izod Center in East Rutherford , NJ , Ended 22 Mar 2015. This world-famous circus has been astounding audiences across the globe for over a hundred years. Ever since the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey circuses merged their travelling shows in 1919, the legendary circus has more than earned its moniker of The Greatest Show on Earth. The show packs in every single type of circus performance that you can think of, forming a spectacular cavalcade of clowns, trapezists, gymnasts, and escape artists.

Animal madness but no badness

Now, the human performers can undoubtedly pull off some pretty spectacular stunts, but without a doubt the true stars of the show are The Ringling Brothers' animals. The circus has a large herd of Asian elephants and a whole menagerie of other beautiful creatures including lions and tigers. Not only are these creatures integral to the show, but The Ringling Bros. see their continued employment as a vital part of the effort to conserve these increasingly rare species. The circus set up their own Center for Elephant Conservation in Florida two decades ago, which not only provides a home for retired tusky performers but is also a hub of scientific research.

Red, Blue or Gold?

The Ringling Bros. operate a number of different shows which are continuously touring across the country at the same time. Built to Amaze (Gold Tour) is the more traditional truck-based show, while Legends! (Blue Tour) lends the proceedings a bit more of a mythical aesthetic. Circus Extreme (Red Tour) is full of death-defying feats and amazing stunts. All three shows contain gravity-defying and magical feats aplenty and are guaranteed to inspire awe and wonder in every audience member. If you'd like to know which tour is headed to your area, please contact the local venue directly.
