For a slam-dunkingly great night out, head to the BIC on 19 April to check out the Original Harlem Globetrotters basketball team. Taking in Bournemouth as one of the many stops on the team’s 2017 World Tour, prepare to be entertained and awe-stricken in equal measures by these formidable – and true showmen – New York athletes with fancy footwork and trick shots.
The team recently completed their 90th year tour, in which they named Pope Francis the ninth honorary Harlem Globetrotter, graced the catwalk at New York fashion week, broke a staggering seven Guinness World Records and remixed their trademark theme song, Sweet Georgia Brown.
The star-studded line-up for the Globetrotters’ latest tour include Big Easy Lofton, Ant Atkinson, Hi-Lite Bruton, Thunder Law, Bull Bullard and Cheese Chislhom plus female stars TNT Lister and Ace Jackson.
The performance includes a basketball game showcasing the team’s trademark ball handling style with rim-rattling dunks, trick shots, comedy set pieces and crowd interaction.
