Harlem Globetrotters to ‘push the limits’ in Fort Wayne


FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) — The Harlem Globetrotters will bring their new “Pushing the Limits” world tour to Fort Wayne.

The Globetrotters will perform at the Memorial Coliseum on Sunday, Feb. 2, 2020 at 2 p.m. Tickets go on sale Friday at 10 a.m.

Fort Wayne is one of more than 280 games on the Globetrotters’ world tour, which promises to “up the ante and create even bigger moments and memories for Globetrotter fans.”

The tour will feature never-been-done-before acts like:

  • Holders of 21 current world records, the Globetrotters will attempt a new world record live at each game on tour this year, hoping to add to their list of impressive accolades and innovations.
  • In many markets, the Globetrotters will also perform their legendary pre-game “Magic Circle” ball handling warmups in the dark, using a glow in the dark Baden basketball to provide the illumination.
  • The Globetrotters will celebrate their fans by introducing “The Fifth Quarter,” a free interactive post-game autograph session where fans will have the opportunity to meet the Globetrotters stars up close and personal.

The Globetrotters will also celebrate the 10th anniversary of the four-point shot, a shot 30-feet from the basket, and bring back its popular “Magic Pass” pre-game event, which enables fans to come onto the court, meet their favorite Globetrotters for pictures and autographs, and even learn how to spin a ball on their finger just like the stars.

“The Globetrotters have always been entertainers and innovators, and this season will be no exception,” said Head Coach and Globetrotter legend Lou Dunbar. “Our fans have come to expect more than just a great show, and this season promises to deliver more entertainment and excitement than ever before. We can’t wait to get the season started and create memories that last a lifetime!”

Tickets for the Globetrotters’ Fort Wayne performance go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. at the Memorial Coliseum Ticket Office, online at ticketmaster.com and via the TM Mobile App.
