Yesterday on thePepsi Center
grounds, Cirque Du Soleil raised its blue and yellow Big Top tent in advance of its latest show,
, which debuts on July 18.
The Big Top is nineteen meters high and has a diameter of 51 meters. It will be secured to the ground with 550 pegs. Once it is completely set up on the inside and outside -- a process that takes eight days -- the tent will be able to seat more than 2,600 people complete with a plush VIP section and air conditioning.
