Ringling Bros And Barnum Bailey Circus Tickets
“The Greatest Show on Earth” will be heading into St Louis and Dodge City over the coming month to dazzle fans with its unbeatable combination of high-flying acrobats, daring tightrope walkers, hilarious clowns, and adorable animals. The Ringling Bros and Barnum and Bailey Circus has been bringing fabulous family entertainment to the masses for well over a century. Although the merger starting the circus did not occur till 1919, they had been soundly successful entities prior to that. Since then it has flourished through prosperous times and lean periods, like the Great Depression and the infamous Hartford Fire incident. Current ringmasters and performers are putting in great efforts to reach standards befitting of its golden legacy. The Feld family’s visionary leadership and strategies have been especially beneficial in this regard, with the Red Tour joining the Gold Tour and the Blue Tour to run three different routes across America, maximizing exposure. It is helping spread smiles to people looking for quality family entertainment.
“P.T. Barnum’s Great Travelling Museum, Menagerie, Caravan, and Hippodrome” was in operation since 1875 after controversial showman Barnum was talked into starting it by William Coup and Dan Castello. He met stiff competition in the shape of the Cooper and Bailey Circus, which attracted visitors with its first ever American-born elephant “Columbia”. After unsuccessfully trying to buy the elephant, Barnum managed to combine both circuses to start the Barnum and Bailey Circus in 1882. It was uproariously successful, even managing a European tour by the turn of the century. This however opened the door for stiff competition from the seven Ringling Bros, whose modest circus had captured the Western population and who took advantage of Barnum and Bailey’s European distractions to build an eastern seaboard base. Barnum’s 1891 and Bailey’s 1905 deaths were the last straws, with the Ringling Bros purchasing their circus in 1906. The two circuses ran separately till 1919, when the two remaining Ringling brothers decided it was much more feasible having a combined show. The Ringling Bros and Barnum and Bailey Circus went great guns before the Great Depression, drawing huge crowds with attractions like wild animals, and actor/animal collector Frank Buck. The 1944 Hartford Circus Fire killed more than 100 in a huge disaster, and things never were the same as the new generation took up movies and television as their recreational pastimes, and circus interest dwindled. Irwin Feld bought it off John Ringling North in 1967, and immediately set about restoring its pride by making a Clown College and starting new tours to maximize attendance. It was sold to Mattel in 1971, but bought back 11 years later as Feld’s son Kenneth took control of affairs. Feld Entertainment has since been created to run the show smoothly, as well as its other engagements.
Ringling Bros and Barnum and Bailey Circus offers a unique collection of thrills for enthusiasts. Acrobats rewrite physics laws with jaw-dropping stunts, while clowns are aplenty to bring a smile onto people’s faces. Emmett Kelly was an iconic clown of his age, and one who made famous the serious-faced hobo clown “Weary Willie”. Illusionists like David DaVinci are at the top of their acts, while a fantastic collection of animals are used. The Animal Welfare Act is totally adhered to in the treatment and care meted out to the animals. To facilitate this aim, the circus has ensured endangered species like the Bengal Tiger and Asian Elephant are properly retired to Big Cat Rescue and Center for Elephant Conservation respectively, the latter having being opened by the circus’s assistance. All dogs are those rescued from atrocious conditions or from animal shelters.
The three tours have gained a lot of fanfare recently. The Zing Zang Zoom Gold Edition Tour is headed by world famous illusionist David DaVinci and his wife Jamie. DaVinci has headlined on luxury cruises, performed to 200 million Chinese people, and had his own show in Saipan. The Fully Charged Red Tour is headed by Ringmaster Brian Crawford Scott. Scott emerged as leading contender from a nationwide talent search by Ringling Bros and Barnum and Bailey Circus. The dynamism of the Barnum 200 Blue Tour is personified by the charismatic Johnathan Lee Iverson, the youngest and first African American Ringmaster in the circus’s history, who has even sung with Pavarotti.
The circus is doing a fantastic job under the current regime in reigniting the interest of families. Ringling Bros and Barnum and Bailey Circus tickets are drawing great responses as the dynamic new look wins hearts.
