NITRO CIRCUS LIVE RETURNS TO EUROPE IN 2016 WITH AN ALL-NEW SHOW
I was SO buzzing to find out Nitro Circus had announced details for its greatest ever all-new show coming to 13 European cities, including my hometown of London, in 2016. The excitement kicks off on Saturday, 23 January in Stockholm, Sweden with a Tele2 Arena performance.
For those of you who don't know, Nitro Circus is the leading youth action sports & entertainment brand on the planet. From humble beginnings, with Jeremy Rawle, Gregg Godfrey and extreme sports superstar Travis Pastrana producing DVDs from a Utah garage in 2003, to a smash TV series which has aired in over 60 countries, Nitro Circus has exploded to global popularity, leaving a burning impression on the minds of young people across the planet. In 2010, the TV show was transformed by current CEO and action sports industry guru Michael Porra into a must-see live event, creating the global touring phenomenon that is Nitro Circus Live. Since its inaugural Australian trek five years ago, the show has travelled the globe, obliterating box office records and cultivating a legion of diehard fans. Nitro Circus has now rolled across five continents, blown away almost two million fans and sold-out shows in Europe, the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, China, Japan the Middle East and South Africa.
Nitro Circus Live’s latest creation takes things to a whole new level, as the best athletes in freestyle motocross (FMX), BMX, skate and more unite for a spectacular all-new production. Starring 17-time X Games medalist Travis Pastrana, the tour will feature unbelievable new tricks, record-breaking feats, insane stunts and the craziest contraptions ever, plus a whole new repertoire of daredevil fun.
“We’ve had a blast touring the world this year and can’t wait to bring this all-new tour to Europe,” says Pastrana. “With each show everyone is pushing one another to go faster and jump farther than the night before. By 2016 it’s going to be unbelievable! Plus, this stage set is so over the top. Fans will be blown away.”
Pastrana will lead an elite team of athletes showcasing a star-studded FMX line up that includes the world’s first triple backflipper and reigning X Fighters champion Josh Sheehan, Australian X Games gold medalists Blake “Bilko” Williams and Cam Sinclair plus American superstar Adam Jones. On the BMX side, show attendees can expect to experience a cavalcade of never before seen madness led by James Foster, the only person currently performing the BMX triple backflip, plus a host of other big names including “The Warrior” Jed Mildon, X Games medalist Andy Buckworth, and plenty more. Fans can also look forward to seeing Jolene Van Vugt, the most daring woman in action sports, and groundbreaking wheelchair motocross (WCMX) star Aaron “Wheelz” Fotheringham.
With this star-studded lineup, combined with a host of outrageous new contraptions launched from the jacked-up, bigger than ever Nitro Gigant-A-Ramp, this is truly a visual experience never seen before.
If that wasn't exciting enough, to top it all off, for its latest event Nitro is going really retro, with the entire performance choreographed and styled as a 1920’s three-ring circus featuring elephants, bears, clowns, trapeze artists, flame throwers, lion tamers and much more. Painstakingly developed over the past five years, this stunning new set and Nitro-composed soundtrack will transport you into the past, to an eerily haunting, abandoned, derelict Big Top. With mind-blowing new lighting and an explosive pyrotechnic display, the new theme provides the perfect backdrop for the most spectacular show in Nitro’s history. “Believe us when we say, you have never seen a circus like this before,” says Pastrana.
