11/8: Acrobats in a Bon Jovi Nation

Contortionism takes over Fort Worth, while Bon Jovi plays nationwide theaters

ACROBATIC ART: For the Golden Dragon Acrobats, contortionism is their thing along with a bit of Vegas-style production. The troupe of Chinese acrobats bend, swoop, balance things on their heads/arms/feet and pile onto tricycles. The acrobats perform the 25-century-old tradition, perfected since they were children, in elaborate costumes and add a dose of twists, a la Siegfried and Roy. The Chinese artists fly through Bass Performance Hall in Fort Worth tonight at 6:30 p.m. 

JOVI GROOVE: Bon Jovi really thinks he’s hot stuff – showing his sold-out concert in more than 550 movie theaters throughout the country.
