Cirque, Clear Channel take to road together

North American arena tour of show has set 100 dates

Cirque du Soleil will finally go the bus-and-truck route.

For the first time in its history, the upscale circus extravaganza will take to the road in a series of one-night stands beginning in November.

Cirque is partnering with Clear Channel Entertainment on the project, which the two orgs are producing and developing together. Under the agreement, the Quebec-based Cirque manages the creative and artistic end, while Clear Channel is handling the production and promotional aspects. At present, the North American arena tour of the Cirque show has set 100 dates.

A spokesman for the project said the currently untitled show’s theme, capitalization and kickoff city have not yet been finalized. It will feature the music catalog of Cirque du Soleil. When the org’s new production hits the road, it will join 10 other Cirque shows currently on the boards around the world. Those productions feature original scores. Cirque has announced a show based on the Beatles catalog of songs that’s due in 2006.
