"The Harlem Globetrotters provide world-class family fun, and we're pleased they have chosen the Intrust Bank Arena for their new show," general manager Chris Presson said. "Praised as 'the sports equivalent of comfort food' by Sports Illustrated in March 2009, the Globetrotters' performances consistently delight fans of all ages."

This is the second act that has been officially announced for the new arena. Brad Paisley will be the opening act on Jan. 9. Taylor Swift's Web site says she'll be playing Wichita on April 1, and indications are that her concert will be at Intrust.
