Twelve Performances at Butler Stadium

Butler Stadium was the site of the UniverSoul Circus Turn’t Up Tour, Aug. 13 – 18, featuring seven days of electrifying entertainment and family fun.

Both young and old – and in between – gathered under the UniverSoul Circus red and yellow big top to enjoy what was a “sensory overload of
indescribable proportions featuring dazzling lights, pulsating sound and an incredible cast of A-list performers handpicked from across the globe.”

All circus attendees were treated to this year’s Turn’t Up Tour  featured new acts, including a neck-breaking head balancing act from Vietnam, Comedy Cat Illusions featuring a live Tiger, and a bountiful bevy of female contortionists from Ethiopia.

From start to finish, UniverSoul presented its most sensational and provocative line up of performers to date. A culturally diverse mix of artist from the United States, Trinidad and Tobago, Colombia, Vietnam, South Africa, Russia, Ethiopia and West Africa took center stage and thrilled the audience with a one-of-a-kind circus experience.

On Sunday Night, UniverSoul Circus culminated with a final performance as they hosted “Bethel’s Family Night under the Big Top.”  A large contingent of family and friends from The Church at Bethel’s Family and friends showed up and enjoyed a circus extravaganza full of excitement, fun and amazing entertainment.  During the event, Pastor Walter August, Jr., senior pastor of The Church at Bethel’s Family, was presented with UniverSoul’s “Spiritual Leadership Award” for his commitment to God and outstanding contributions to Houston. Pastor Walter August and First Lady, Ruby August also served as Guest Ringmasters for this special event.

“It’s TURN’T UP! For 2013, UniverSoul Circus has reached a new level of exuberance and energy never before witnessed under the big top. The energy level is heightened. Bottomline – this show is on fire…it’s TURN’T UP!

“Our event is all about lifting spirits. Whether you’re sitting on the edge of your chair with excitement, dancing to the music or high-fiving our performers as they pass through the aisles, UniverSoul Circus is designed to move the audiences in a positive way,” said Walker.
