Harlem Globetrotters bringing tour back to Duluth

Created: March 11, 2020 10:39 AM

The Harlem Globetrotters are making their way back to Duluth for the all new "Pushing the Limits" World Tour.  It will be at Amsoil Arena on March 29 at 3 p.m. 


Flip White stopped by Good Morning Northland to give a preview of the skills.

"Our 2020 Pushing the Limits World Tour is going to be amazing," White said.  "We have plenty of things to look forward to."  

He said it doesn't matter if you've been to a game or not, there will be a new version of the "magic circle."  

"This time we're shutting off the lights," White said.  "We're going to have a glow in the dark basketball, we'll have light up head bands, and wristbands." 

White said they come up with new tricks by bouncing ideas off each other, watching videos online, and putting their brains together.

They also love to enteract with the audience.

"We love jumping into the crowd, having fun with them," White said.  "We might grab a kid, take your popcorn, we might bite a hot dog, you never know what we're going to do."

They also have the fifth quarter with more interaction, including meeting the players and signing autographs. 

White said it's a dream come true to be a Harlem Globetrotter. 

The Harlem Globetrotters are at Amsoil Arena on March 29 at 3 p.m.  You can purchase tickets here.
