Attendees Will be Treated to an Exclusive Preview of R.U.N – The First Live-Action Thriller by Cirque du Soleil 

Fandom, the fan-first global platform company,  has teamed up with Cirque du Soleil for its 4th annual Fandom Party at San Diego Comic Con.

The annual rooftop bash will take place on Thursday, July 18th at Float at the Hard Rock Hotel, where guests will be treated to an exclusive sneak peek of R.U.N – the first live-action thriller by Cirque du Soleil, followed by a special performance by Girl Talk.

Premiering at Luxor in Las Vegas this October, R.U.N is a groundbreaking new Cirque du Soleil show that provides the audience with an unprecedented sensory experience where state-of-the-art special effects collide with human performance and cutting-edge technology to explore the world of stunts.  The Fandom Party will feature a specially created act inspired by R.U.N conceived by Show Director Michael Schwandt and Creation Director Stefan Miljevic.  It will showcase a live performance by Tyler Bates, R.U.N’s Music Composer, as well as a voice-over narration written by the show’s Writer, acclaimed filmmaker Robert Rodriguez.  The never-before-seen performance will include pyrotechnic elements, an epic rooftop battle, adrenaline-inducing motorcycle tricking, and live-action stunts.
