Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey's Fully Charged in Auburn Hills

Come one, come all, 'Fully Charged' comes to the Palace of Auburn Hills for a show full of electrifying spectacles and stunts, Nov. 7-11, 2012

An electric circus is coming to town! The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey new circus show "Fully Charged," will be at the Palace of Auburn Hills, Nov. 7-11, 2012.

This new show promises electrifying thrills of dare-devilry, stunts and "never-before-seen" performances from America's longest-running circus company.

On the bill is Tabayara, an animal trainer with a rare ability to communicate with animals allowing him to control four-ton Asian elephants and stand inside the cage of 12 ferocious tigers.

The fearless Fernandez Brothers will also be wowing audiences with their daring aerial stunts, including a 360-degree forward somersault three stories up in the air.

Demonstrating Herculean strength, the Mongolian strongman duo Titanic Tulga and Mighty Meetal lift half-ton telephone poles and twirl them above their heads, while limber acrobats balance atop.

Flying 80 feet at 65 miles per hour will be the Human Fuse, Brian Miser, who will rocket across the arena from his human crossbow.

Last but not least are the Ringling Bros. Clown-Alley clowns, bringing laughs and shocking audiences with their silly antics. Cue the sparks and smoke.

Of course, there will be plenty of treats for kids and adults sold at concessions throughout the day, including memorabilia and fun toys.

Show times are as follows:

  • Wednesday, Nov. 7-Thursday, Nov. 8: 7:30 p.m.
  • Friday, Nov. 9: 11 a.m. and 7:30 p.m.
  • Saturday, Nov. 10: 11:30 a.m., 3:30 and 7:30 p.m.
  • Sunday, Nov. 11: 1 and 5 p.m.
