Family Events Harlem Globetrotters 2017 World Tour at The Palace of Auburn Hills The unrivaled Harlem Globetrotters come through town to celebrate more than 90 years of tricks, flips and dunks on Jan. 1, 2017. « Previous Next » Jasmine Espy • December 20, 2016 Add Comment Tweet Are you ready for basketball like you’ve never seen it before? The Harlem Globetrotters will continue their 2017 World Tour with a stop at The Palace of Auburn Hills. Families can see the iconic talents perform their basketball artistry and ball-handling wizardry at 2 p.m. Jan. 1, 2017. This one-of-a-kind family entertainment experience will include players like Big Easy Lofton, Ant Atkinson, Hi-Lite Bruton, Thunder Law, Bull Bullard, Cheese Chisholm – plus the two dynamic dames: TNT Lister and Ace Jackson (though rosters are subject to change!). New this year, the Globetrotters are rolling out “basketball’s first four-point line” located 30 feet from the basket. To put it in perspective, that’s six feet and three inches beyond the NBA’s three-point line. Parents, don’t forget to bring your cameras! The Harlem Globetrotters will sign autographs and take pictures with fans after the game. The Harlem Globetrotters show is sure to be a slam-dunk. After this performance, your kids just might want to go home, grab the nearest basketball and shoot some hoops, too. Tickets to the family show are $20 for general admission, $30-$45 for reserved and $75 for VIP. Purchase your tickets online or by phone through Ticketmaster. Information on group and scout tickets can also be found on the Harlem Globetrotters website, along with updates, a full tour schedule and merchandise.
