Tom Brady returned to New England last month. Now it’s time for another GOAT to come to town.

Simone Biles, the most decorated gymnast of all time, will bring her Gold Over America Tour to TD Garden for a Sunday night show as it wraps a 35-city run highlighting not only Biles but a team of world-class gymnasts.

Running for 110 minutes, including intermission, the show touts itself as “a high-octane, fun-filled experience that will not only showcase athletic brilliance but also showcase each athlete’s own inspiring championship journey and bring the audience closer to the action than ever before.” Among the dozen athletes joining Biles on the tour are four of her five teammates from the 2020 Tokyo Olympics — Jordan Chiles, MyKayla Skinner, Grace McCallum, and Jade Carey — as well as 2016 gold medalist Laurie Hernandez.

Hernandez also narrates the pre-show “Chalk Talk,” which is a premium experience (requiring a separate ticket) where audience members can hear from the gymnasts and participate in a question-and-answer session. General tickets run from $30 in the balcony to nearly $200 closer to the floor, which will feature areas for beams, floor exercises, tumbling, and uneven bars. 

The biggest draw is undoubtedly Biles, the 24-year-old legend who only agreed to participate in the tour if USA Gymnastics was not involved, according to Yahoo Sports. In this summer’s Olympics she withdrew from some of her planned events because she developed the “twisties,” and was not mentally ready to compete, and the tour does not shy away from addressing the mental health challenges she and other athletes have faced.

“We have one segment called ‘Overwhelmed,’” Biles told the Los Angeles Times. “And it’s kind of like that anxiety, depression feel to it and it’s like trying to fight those battles and coming out stronger from it and then being happy again, so you’ll see that a little bit in the show.”
