Following their hugely successful 2010 UK arena tour, the world famous Harlem Globetrotters today announced that they will be returning to the Metro Radio Arena, Newcastle on Tuesday 26th April 2011 for another night of superb family entertainment. Throughout their history, the Globetrotters have showcased their iconic talents in 120 countries and territories on six continents, often breaking down cultural and societal barriers while providing fans with their first-ever basketball experience. Proud inductees of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, the Globetrotters have entertained hundreds of millions of fans-among them popes, kings, queens, and presidents-over more than eight thrilling decades. Sponsored on their international tours by Spalding and Russell Athletic, the Original Harlem Globetrotters will tip-off their 85th consecutive year on Dec. 26 with their 2011 "4 Times the Fun" World Tour, continuing a world famous tradition of ball handling wizardry, basketball artistry and one-of-a-kind family entertainment that continues to thrill fans of all ages. The Harlem Globetrotters recently became the first live-event entertainers to earn the coveted Seal of Approval from Parent Tested, Parent Approved (PTPA). Independent parent volunteers decisively named the team's live show a winner based on its wholesome family entertainment content and high quality of production. The PTPATM Seal is internationally recognized as a leader in certifying consumer products for quality, effectiveness and value. "At PTPA Media, we are proud to play a role in certifying products that families can trust," said Sharon Vinderine, president and founder of PTPA Media Inc. "The Globetrotters' ability to keep both parents and children laughing and smiling throughout their show was equally as impressive as their amazing athletic ability. Deservingly, the Globetrotters' show is the first live-event to earn the PTPA Seal and we are honoured that they trusted us with their legendary show." Don't miss the opportunity to be dazzled by one of the most enduring, respected and iconic shows in family entertainment when the world famous Harlem Globetrotters come to an arena near you in 2011.
