CORBIN — By Jeff Noble / Staff Writer

It’s been said everyone loves a circus. With that being said, “The Greatest Show on Earth” is coming to Corbin next month.

Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey will present their life-size Super Circus Heroes at the Corbin Arena for two nights — on Tuesday, May 27 and Wednesday, May 28.

The performances will start at 7 p.m. both nights.

The circus promises to be filled with “superhuman athleticism, power and pageantry that will have children of all ages discovering their own superhuman strength.” It will also feature “Amazing Asian elephants, horses, camels and more, alongside astonishing acrobats, awe-inspiring aerialists and some over-the-top clowns that will have audience in stitches…of laughter, of course.”

In addition, Ringling Bros will offer real face-time with the performers, starting at the interactive “All Access Pre-Show,” which will take place on the Corbin Arena floor one hour before the show starts. The pre-show is free to all ticket holders.

Tickets for Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Presents Super Circus Heroes will go on sale this Friday.

The tickets start at $20, with all seats reserved. They’re available by calling Ticketmaster at 1-800-745-3000. If you need group rates or other information, you can contact the Corbin Arena Box Office.

The Corbin Arena will also be the site of “An Evening with the Gaither Vocal Band,” which will take place Friday, June 13 at 7 p.m.

The inspiring evening of entrainment and music will feature Bill Gaither, Wes Hampton, David Phelps, Adam Crabb and Todd Suttles, along with special guests to be announced onstage.

Last month, Corbin Arena officials announced the Gaither Tour would make a return visit, adding the tour was one of most requested acts to play at the facility.

A special pre-sale of tickets for the Gaither Vocal Band concert was held last Friday at 10 a.m. Tickets went on sale to the public Monday morning, and can be also be purchased at the Corbin Arena Ticket Office and all Ticketmaster locations, by calling Ticketmaster at 1-800-745-3000, or at
