Brazil’s pyromusical show, titled “Tropicalia”, launched successfully tonight as GlobalFest at Elliston Park marked the second stop on their Canadian tour. The Brazilian team’s first visit to Canada was Vancouver’s famous Celebration of Light a few weeks earlier.
Meanwhile, USA’s Pyrotecnico, Inc. prepares for Friday’s show exhibiting current hits of American pop music. This includes hit singles from Rhianna, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, and the Black Keys. Their Calgary show for GlobalFest 2012 promises to be a high-energy, action-packed display set to familiar tunes that the audience will be sure to cheer for.
