And our readers get a chance to buy first tickets

A MAGICAL show from Cirque du Soleil is coming to Glasgow – and Evening Times readers can get the best seats.

S a l t i m b a n c o , wh i c h features a cast of more than 50 jugglers, acrobats and clowns, will roll into the SECC next summer.

It is the longest-running major touring show from the modern circus and has been on around t h e wo r l d s i n c e 1 9 9 2 . More than 11 million people in Europe, America, Australia and Japan have seen it.

G l a s g ow i s t h e o n ly S c o tt i s h ve n u e fo r t h e performanc­es, which will be on from June 2 - 6.

P h i l B owd e r y, p r e s i - dent of touring at promoters Live Nation, said: “The show is a signature Cirque du Soleil sensation. It’s a vibrant, uplifting, colourful show, one o f t h e mo st p r o l i f i c i n Cirque’s repertoire.”

The performanc­e is inspired by cities and features juggling, balancing, sp i n n i n g , t r ap e z e a n d bungees – as well as the celebrated clowns.

Earlier this year the company’s Quidam was staged in Glasgow. The show – with gymnast Julie Cameron, who started her career in Kilmarnock – was said by our reviewer to be worth every pen- ny of the £50 ticket price.

Tickets for Saltimbanc­o, which cost from £40, go on sale at 9am tomorrow to Evening Times readers, days before they are available to anybody else. To book, visit www. cirqueduso­leil.com/club and fill out the form.
