  • PBR: UNLEASH THE BEAST – October 4th and 5th

For the first time in 13 years, PBR’s elite tour, featuring the Top 35 bull riders in the world and rankest bucking bulls in the nation, will invade Minneapolis, Minnesota.  The Minneapolis Invitational, the 24th stop on the premier PBR UNLEASH THE BEAST, will buck into Target Center for two days of edge-of-your-seat action on October 4 – 5.

Thus far in 2019, fans have watched another fierce race for the world title and million dollar bonus playing out during the tour’s action-packed first half.  All expected to ride in Minneapolis, the Top 5 riders in the world standings, No. 1 Jose Vitor Leme, No. 2 Chase Outlaw, No. 3 Joao Ricardo Vierira, No. 4  Jess Lockwood and No. 5 Cody Teel are separated by fewer than 1,000 points.

The PBR is NOT a rodeo  –  it’s two hours of pyro, music and the most intense bull riding action on Earth, filled with heart-pounding, bone-crushing action and a star studded line up of the world’s best riders and animal athletes.     (Riders subject to change)

CORTEO, which means “cortege” in Italian, is a joyous procession, a festive parade imagined by a clown.The show brings together the passion of the actor with the grace and power of the acrobat to plunge the audience into a theatrical world of fun, comedy and spontaneity situated in a mysterious space between heaven and earth.
Clowns have gotten a bad rap, pop culture-wise, in the last few years. But the lovable character at the center of Cirque du Soleil – CORTEO is definitely not it. The clown pictures his own funeral taking place in a carnival atmosphere, watched over by quietly caring angels. As he passes from this life, the comedian’s reverie blends past reality with heavenly fantasy, creating a spellbinding world brought to life by dazzling costumes and sets.

This amazing show is packed with Cirque’s seemingly impossible acrobatics, “for a display of human physicality that defies the laws of physics” (LA Weekly), as well as lyrical and playful music carrying Corteo through a timeless celebration in which illusion teases reality.

Don’t miss the opportunity to see this theatrical procession of poetic characters and graceful acrobats!
