The 2008 Tour of Gymnastics Superstars includes agile performers who can flip and leap through the air and balance their bodies with one limb, on one bar, high above the ground. Names such as Nastia Liukin, Shawn Jones and Paul and Morgan Hamm (twin brothers from Ohio) should ring a bell for gymastics enthusiasts. So should Shannon Miller. The Olympic medalist (she won seven) was born in Rolla, Missouri, in 1977, and will perform alongside athletes who were practically in the womb when she built her reputation. The 6 p.m. show at the Sprint Center (1407 Grand, 816-949-7000) also includes performances by tween-friendly K.S.M. and Jordan Pruitt. Tickets start at $24.50.
