Batmania hits Steel City

Batmania has hit the citizens of Steel City where the caped crusader and his arch enemies have swooped for a multi-million pound spectacular show.

Little heroes wearing Batman suits, girls swishing around in floor-length capes, teenagers made up to look like The Joker and parents wearing themed T-shirts turn Batman Live into one big fancy dress party.

The biggest party of all is on stage when an out-of-this-world spectacular attacks the senses like a knockout blow from Batman’s leather-clad fist.

Death-defying aerial stunts performed against moving 3D cartoon-strip backdrops, spectacular pyrotechnics and awesome magic tricks make this the greatest show in the universe.

While Batman battled his nemesis The Joker last night (Wednesday), a new enemy caught him off guard - the Techno Gremlin, which held up the show for six minutes just before its fantastic finale.

Batman Live is running at the Motorpoint Arena until Sunday, August 14.
