Following their hugely successful 2010 UK arena tour, the Globetrotters are returning to the UK to celebrate their 85th anniversary with an even more extensive run of dates, stopping off at the Motorpoint Arena on Thursday April 28.
Sponsored on their international tours by Spalding and Russell Athletic, the Original Harlem Globetrotters will bring their latest 4 Times the Fun World Tour 2011, continuing a tradition of ball-handling wizardry, basketball artistry and one-of-a-kind family entertainment that continues to thrill fans of all ages.
Throughout their history, the Globetrotters have showcased their iconic talents in 120 countries and territories on six continents, often breaking down cultural and social barriers while providing fans with their first-ever basketball experience.
Proud inductees of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, the Globetrotters have entertained hundreds of millions of fans – among them popes, kings, queens, and presidents – over more than eight thrilling decades.
The Harlem Globetrotters recently became the first live-event entertainers to earn the coveted Seal of Approval from Parent Tested, Parent Approved.
