The Harlem Globetrotters will be performing at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on 5 April as part of their Fan Powered World Tour this year. Let this famous American basketball troupe entertain you with their astonishing skills and humorous antics.
Who are they?
The Harlem Globetrotters have been showcasing their basketball skills for the past 93 years, across 123 countries and territories on six continents. Formed in Chicago, the team initially started participating in the World Basketball Championships; over time, they started including comic routines into their act and became known for their entertaining displays.
Widely seen as the pioneers in popularising the slam dunk, fast break, forward and point guard positions and figure-eight weave, the Globetrotters have performed for millions of fans including royalty and presidents. They’ve also displayed their skills for various charity organisations and collaborated with STOMP, Philadelphia 76ers, Arsenal Football Club, Stephen Curry and the US Gymnastics team, among others.
Along the way, the troupe has racked up an impressive 21 Guinness World Record Titles, including five new records on Guinness World Records Day in 2018 alone. These include the most under-the-leg tumbles in one minute – an unbelievable 32!
Action on the court
Needless to say, this April’s show is set to be remarkable, featuring plenty of signature moves and loads of fun on the court that will keep you and the kids well entertained. Celebrating their fans, this edition of the world tour will bring the audience even closer to the action, with more opportunities to interact with the basketball stars during the games.
