Harlem Globetrotters

Day Date Time
Saturday 02-Nov-2013 7:30pm

One of the most famous sports teams in the world here in Tasmania!

Before Kobe Bryant, before Shaquille O’Neal and even before Michael Jordan, there were the Harlem Globetrotters and they are coming to the Derwent Entertainment Centre.  

It’s been over nine years since one of the most famous sports teams in history graced the courts in Australia and they are returning in November.

The Harlem Globetrotters are an exhibition basketball team that combines athleticism, theatre and comedy and have been part of the basketball scene since 1929.

Over the years they have played more than 20,000 exhibition games in 122 countries on six continents, with Brother Bone’s whistled version  of “Sweet Georgia Brown" as the team's signature song.

The Globetrotters are a team which puts on a display of magic the whole family can enjoy, from game-time scoring to tricks involving the audience. Around 25 people will be travelling as part of the Harlem Globetrotters teams of players, staff and officials.

“It’s exciting to bring such an iconic sports team to Australia after such a long time. The Harlem Globetrotters are incredibly skilled athletes and entertainers who put on a fantastic family show. It’s great that we’re able to take the team to so many cities throughout Australia to give as many people as possible the opportunity to see this world-famous team. So far tickets are selling very well. People are really keen to see what is going to be an amazing spectacle,” said David Samuel from On The Road Events.

Tickets are now on sale and can be purchased via the Ticketmaster  website
