Wallenda to walk across Chicago skyline this fall


Famed aerialist Nik Wallenda will be walking on a high wire across Chicago's skyline later this year in an event to be broadcast on the Discovery Channel.

According to Entertainment Weekly, which said no further details were available, Wallenda will make the walk without a tether.

Wallenda, who will be performing for 10 weeks this summer at Darien Lake as well as at the Erie County Fair, walked across a tight rope over Niagara Falls in 2012.
