Harlem Globetrotters at the Palace of Auburn Hills

All the basketball athletics and family entertainment of this popular team return to the Palace of Auburn Hills, Dec. 26, 2011

Did you know that the world-famous Harlem Globetrotters started out as – the "Savory Big Five?" Yep: Some 85 years ago, a 24-year-old businessman named Abe Saperstein whipped up the team to promote his business, the Savory Ballroom. Today, the team's mix of athletics, comedy and theatrics has become a hit with families.

They've performed for millions of people in 120 countries, and on Monday, Dec. 26, 2011, they're bringing their 2012 World Tour to the Palace of Auburn Hills for some post-holiday family fun.

These innovators of the alley-oop, three-man weave, slam dunk and four-point shot put on quite a show. And, if you haven't seen the team in person, you'll quickly realize that it's more of a show than a basketball game. It's the random dancing, comedy and fan participation that really make this fun.

The primarily male team's roster includes one woman this year – TNT Maddox. She is one of nine gals who have ever been on the team, and you'll get to see her in action.

Don't miss out! This one-day event happens at 7 p.m. Ticket prices are $17/general admission, $26.50/reserved and $41.50/VIP. Special offers on family four-packs are as follows: $55/general, $85/reserved and $125/VIP.
