Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus will end "The Greatest Show on Earth" following a 146-year run of performances, Kenneth Feld, the chairman and CEO of Feld Entertainment, which owns the circus, recently announced.
Currently, Ringling Bros. has two touring circuses and will perform 30 shows between now and May, including several stops in the Carolinas, before performing the final shows in Providence, Rhode Island, on May 7 and Uniondale, New York, on May 21.
The show is billed as an interactive experience with an action-packed storyline. For the first time, the show features thrill skaters, in addition to unbelievable performances by gravity-defying acrobats, majestic animals and hilarious clowns.
“Circus Xtreme,” featuring extreme thrills, exotic animals, original fast-paced performances and incredibly hilarious moments, is scheduled to run in Greenville (South Carolina) at Bon Secours Wellness Arena Feb. 2-5 and Greensboro Coliseum in Greensboro Feb. 8-12.
Tickets for all dates in the Carolinas are on sale now at Ticketmaster.com and at all Ticketmaster outlets. Ticket prices start at $20.
