Warm in winter, cool in summer, and filled with amazing acts in every season, the Big Apple Circus's pair of Italian-made big tops contains the best of several generations' worth of circus traditions. A look at any show's cast finds a complex network of venerable European circus families passing the arts of juggling and trapeze artistry down through the years, while the tents' motors and seating make for a comfortably modern spectator experience.
You might never guess that the troupe started small in 1974, when American circus artists Paul Binder and Michael Christensen joined forces as a juggling act on the streets of Europe. They moved from streetlights to spotlights in a hurry, appearing on the stage of the Nouveau Cirque de Paris, before returning to the U.S. and creating their own not-for-profit circus in 1976 and raising their first tent in New York's Battery Park.
The Adirondack Phantoms are the hard-hitting American Hockey League affiliate team of the Philadelphia Flyers. With top scorer Denis Hamel coordinating the attacks, Johan Backlund guarding the net, and left wing Andrew Rowe acting as the wry comic relief, the Phantoms stand ready to disrupt the rankings of intradivision rivals the Charlotte Checkers and Albany Devils, as well as Atlantic Division power Connecticut Whale. Screaming fans with gold-level seats, shown in black on this seating chart, will have a clear view of every smoke-trailed slap shot, every body-checked player's smushed face against the Plexiglass, and every accidental summoning of Ymir the frost giant.
Hard-rock juggernauts Five Finger Death Punch give audiences four for flinching on their Share The Welt tour, a high-octane evening of nail-driving metal and chugging aural concrete. Since bursting onto the scene in 2007 with its gold-selling debut, The Way of the Fist, Five Finger Death Punch has scaled the charts and the musical food chain, gulping its competition like a possessed Takeru Kobayashi. For the tour in support of its latest effort, American Capitalist, the gang enlists an entire posse of heavy hitters. Massachusetts metal mavens All That Remains, fresh from melting soles on the Vans Warped Tour, bludgeon audiences with an arsenal of hits, and hardcore shredders Hatebreed share unkind words as they haze the speed of sound. Adding power-chord crunch to the show, Fort Wayne’s Rains sprinkles audiences with raw and emotional sonic sleet.

Since the 2003 premiere at ATF, Bowers and his autobiographical show have toured the country, delighting audiences with a barrage of comical chronicles, such as his psychic father-son bonding experience or the time Miss Montana vomited on him. The title and many of the show's thematic nuances stem from Bowers' career as a mime, a trade which puts a great deal of importance on using hand gestures and body language to communicate things like "I'm pulling a rope," "I'm in love with this girl," and "I was rejected by my top pick for grad school." Click here to read Bowers' take on the show's background, then get your ears tickled and your chuckle machine greased up on either of the following dates:
