Shimmer tapings have been announced, bro. It’s kinda news. XD

SHIMMER – WOMEN ATHLETES returns to the Berwyn Eagles Club (6309 26th Street) in Berwyn, IL on Saturday & Sunday, October 1st & 2nd, 2011. Volumes 41-44 of the SHIMMER DVD series will be filmed over the course of that weekend.

We’re announcing the dates this far in advance to give everyone plenty of time to set the dates aside, request time off from work, and start saving money for a potential trip to Chicago. If you’ve never been to a SHIMMER taping live, but have always wondered what it would be like to catch our shows in person, you’ve got several months notice to plan ahead and make the trip for these events!

Front row seating to the October 1st & 2nd tapings will go on sale on Sunday, May 22nd, at 6pm Central time. Front row ticket price will be the same as it was for this past set of shows, $70 per full day of taping. Be logged in at The SHIMMER Forum at 6pm Central on May 22nd. Instructions to place your front row ticket order will be posted at that time.

Mark your calendars! SHIMMER is back October 1st & 2nd in Berwyn!
