They’ve sold out the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, performed to sell-out crowds across Europe, broken ticket sale records in Australia and were the highest selling tour in New Zealand in 2011, beating AC/DC and U2. Today, Nitro Circus Live (www.nitrocircuslive.com) is excited to announce that they will be bringing a brand new, death defying spectacular to South Africa for the first time in February 2014.
Nitro Circus Live showcases over 40 of the world’s best action sports athletes performing daring and often record-breaking tricks in freestyle motocross, BMX and skateboarding, along with heart-stopping stunts on unique contraptions rarely attempted outside of the Nitro Circus family. Featuring the stars of Nitro Circus’ hit TV show and Nitro Circus 3D film, the tour was founded by action sports legend, Travis Pastrana, a 10-time X Games gold medalist in Freestyle Motocross.
“This tour is the biggest and most audacious action sports production ever staged,” says Pastrana. “This is truly an exciting, adrenaline-charged, live action sports show featuring an insane group of athletes who push each other to new extremes every single show.”
Nitro Circus Live will perform three stadium dates on 15th February 2014 at Cape Town Stadium, 19th February 2014 at Moses Mabhida Stadium, Durban and 22nd February 2014 at FNB Stadium, Johannesburg. Tickets for the three cities go on sale today at 09:00 a.m. Tickets can be purchased from from Big Concerts, Computicket and through www.nitrocircuslive.com
“We are excited to be bringing Nitro Circus Live’s over-the-top stunts to a whole new set of fans in South Africa,” said Nitro Circus Live Promoter, Mike Porra. “This show is like nothing fans have ever experienced before and I know they’ll be blown away by the non-stop action and crazy antics that make up the show.”
Fans will witness some of the most difficult and dangerous stunts in freestyle motocross, BMX and skate with star athletes from across the world performing their biggest and best tricks off Nitro Circus Live’s multi-million dollar set and famous, 50-foot high Nitro Gigant-A-Ramp.
Not only will the Nitro Circus Live crew be performing the biggest tricks in FMX and BMX, they will also be pushing their limits and skill on skates, scooters and a range of crazy contraptions; including, a drinks cooler, Barbie car, toy trike, shopping trolley, boogie board and many more.
One of the craziest stunts in the new show includes the extraordinary – hole-in-one – where riders launch 50 feet into the air off the Gigant-A-Ramp and attempt to land with pinpoint accuracy inside an inflatable Zorb ball.
