In their 84th consecutive season touring the world, the venerated Harlem Globetrotters bring their basketball hi-jinks as part of the 2010 Magical Memories World Tour to the Orleans Arena for one-night-only, February 10 at 7:00 p.m (Pictured above: Scooter Christensen).
Also known as the Magicians of Basketball and the Ambassadors of Goodwill, the Harlem Globetrotters entertain audiences with a dose of slapstick comedy and a unique mix of trick shots, high-flying dunks and basketball handling wizardry.
The legendary athletic organization has played more than 25,000 games in their nearly 85-year history. They have played in 120 countries, on six continents and for more than 130 million fans—including everyone from Presidents of the United States to the Pope. For the North American leg of their 2010 Magical Memories World Tour, the team will play nearly 270 games in more than 215 cities in 44 states, five Canadian provinces and in Puerto Rico.
The event will begin at 7:00 p.m., with doors opening at 6:00 p.m. Tickets are on sale now and are priced at $21.00, $29.00, $36.00, $56.00, $76.00 and $114.00, inclusive of tax and fees.
