Back in 2009, The Wife and I attended Cirque du Soleil’s Kooza under the big-top tent located along the riverfront in St. Paul. An absolutely wonderful show which we received free tickets to attend and review, we were so very impressed that we have been suggesting to everyone that if they have a chance they should try and get out and see a Cirque du Soleil show for themselves.
Well, now you have that chance–for free. I have received two free tickets which will go out to a single lucky reader who will be chosen at random from the usual array of entry points (Twitter, Facebook, and comments below). The tickets retail for around $75/each ($150 total) and will be e-mailed to the winner.
However, even if you don’t win the two tickets, don’t fret as you can still win out by reading Lazy Lightning. All readers have the option of purchasing discounted tickets (15%) through the specialized link below:
Cirque du Soleil’s touring production OVO is hitting Minneapolis this spring, and friends of Lazy Lightning can receive 15% off select performances!
Cirque du Soleil is pleased to announce that it will open in Minneapolis with its touring big top production, OVO, starting Thursday, May 26th, 2011. OVO will perform for a limited engagement under the trademark blue-and-yellow Grand Chapiteau (Big Top) at the Mall of America.
OVO is a headlong rush into a colorful ecosystem teeming with life, where insects work, eat, crawl, flutter, play, fight and look for love in a non-stop riot of energy and movement. The insects’ home is a world of biodiversity and beauty filled with noisy action and moments of quiet emotion.
Fun for the whole family! No promo code needed. Just click here to get your discounted tickets!
