Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Bring Fully Charged to California

Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey gets set to fully charge California crowds with eager anticipation and amazing awe when Fully Charged tours the Golden State. Fully Charged, currently on an 80-city North American tour, will let you witness dancing Asian elephants, the only human crossbow in existence, acrobatics performed by only one other person in Ringling Brothers’ 141-year history, and much more. San Diego’s Valley View Casino Center hosts Fully Charged from Thursday, July 14th to Sunday, July 17th. The following week, from Wednesday, July 20th to Sunday, July 24th, Fully Charged performers will call Los Angeles’s STAPLES Center home. Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey gives Anaheim and nearby residents ample opportunities to see Fully Charged when the show takes over the Honda Center Wednesday, July 27th through Sunday, August 7th.   

Promoted as Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey’s “most electrifying edition ever” Fully Charged establishes high expectations. To meet these expectations Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey cast insatiably impressive performers. Ringmaster Brian Crawford Scott guides you through Fully Charged. Explained via press release Scott, a relative newcomer to the industry, earned the ringmaster position with his “stunning voice” and “engaging personality.” In Ringling Brothers’ 141-year history Scott becomes just the 36th ringmaster. About his Fully Charged kin Scott commented “These people are the best at what they do. It’s very inspiring to work with them. “ 

Standouts amongst these inspiring talents include The Fernandez Brothers, The Human Fuse Brian Miser, The Brothers of Braun, and Tabayara Maluenda. Entertainment runs in The Fernandez Brothers’, Guillermo and Alberto, blood. Guillermo will perform a 360 degree flying forward somersault while three stories high. Only one other performer in Ringling Brothers’ near 150-year history accomplished this feat. The acrobatic act requires much expertise, making the task perfect for Guillermo. Guillermo started practicing acrobatics at five years old.

The Human Fuse Brian Miser burns lasting memories into minds by getting set ablaze and shot from the world’s only human crossbow. Miser invented the human crossbow himself and helped promote Fully Charged with a demonstration on The Late Show with David Letterman. Even if you saw Miser perform on Letterman, you will still want to see The Human Fuse live. Plus you get to experience the other standout performers, such as the muscular Uzbekistan duo Dmitry and Ruslan. Known as The Brothers of Braun, the two amaze audiences with their strength. Dmitry and Ruslan’s act includes twirling telephone polls over their heads as acrobats balance on the polls.

Tabayara Maluenda, simply known as Taba, entertains using a different muscle, his mind. Taba possesses a phenomenal ability to communicate with animals. This skill allows Taba to joyride rearing stallions or stand fearlessly in a cage with a dozen tigers. Taba started performing with animals as a teenager. With time his show evolves. Taba will showcase his latest evolution, orchestrating four ton Asian elephants in dance, at Fully Charged.

Show producer Nicole Fields explains the idea behind the Fully Charged name. “Fully charged usually means powering up the phone, computer, or gaming device. People become so immersed in these devices, however, there is nothing like the charge you feel with a trip to The Greatest Show On Earth. It brings families and friends together for a memorable experience.” Preshow events add to the memories. An hour before show time ticket holders can enjoy interactive activities, such as meeting performers and learning circus tricks. An hour and a half before Fully Charged begins you can participate in an animal open house and get up close to the animals you will later see in action. 

Overall Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey’s Fully Charged event presents a wonderful and entertaining opportunity for a fun time out. Let the Fully Charged crew dazzle you by getting your tickets today. Fully Charged takes place at San Diego’s Valley View Casino Center from Thursday, July 14th to Sunday, July 17th.  Los Angeles’s STAPLES Center welcomes Fully Charged Wednesday, July 20th through Sunday, July 24th. Anaheim’s Honda Center houses Fully Charged from Wednesday, July 27th to Sunday, August 7th (with an off day Monday, August 1st).
