Footballing superstar Lionel Messi along with Barcelona teammate Luis Suarez were in attendance at the premiere of the Cirque Du Soleil show, a spectacle based on the life of the 31-year-old.
The new Cirque du Soleil production is based on the Argentine’s extraordinary career and will be staging its worldwide premiere on October 10 in Parc del Forum with a total of 32 performances between now and November 10.
The show, named Messi10, tells the story of ‘a young man with boundless ambition to overcome all obstacles in becoming the greatest number 10 in the world.’ Promising to be an ‘explosive, fan fueled and inspiring experience’, Messi10 will highlight ‘the athleticism, devotion and brilliance that bridges the world of football and circus by celebrating the magic behind the greatest footballer of our time.’
Messi who was joined with his partner Antonella Roccuzzo at the event had earlier revealed that the Cirque Du Soleil was one of his family’s favourite shows.
“It seems incredible and crazy to me that a show based on my life, my passion, my sport has been created. Cirque du Soleil is one of our family’s favourite shows. I have no doubt this show will surprise people as they always do,” Messi said as quoted by Dailymail.
