Due to high demand, the newest, most daring and adrenalin-packed live show, Travis Pastrana’s Nitro Circus Live, is set to come to the NIA in Birmingham on December 5th. Tickets go on sale on Friday June 8th at 9am (all ticket details below).
This will be the 3rd UK date (in addition to London’s O2 Arena, December 3rd and Manchester Arena, December 4th) and will be the first time that the Nitro Circus tour has come to the UK and Europe. The multi-million dollar show, which is currently playing to sell-out crowds throughout Australia, will be the world’s biggest and most audacious action sports production ever staged.
Headlining the tour, that will also visit, Sweden, Germany, Austria, Czech Republic, Belgium, Netherlands and Belgium, will be Nitro creator 17-times X games medalist and action sports legend Travis Pastrana, in his first ever European tour. Joining Pastrana will be the entire Nitro Circus crew from the hit MTV show and upcoming Nitro Circus 3D Movie including the world’s leading stunt woman, Jolene Van Vugt (CAN) and multi- record holders, Erik Roner (USA), Jim De Champ (USA), Special Greg (USA) and Dusty Wygle (USA), as well as some of the world’s best action sports athletes.
Nitro Circus Live is a two and a half hour, fully choreographed action sports spectacular. Each show combines the biggest and best freestyle motocross (FMX) stunts with insane BMX and skateboard action, as well as the famous Nitro Circus crew performing outrageous feats on a crazy array of contraptions launched off the 50 foot high Nitro Gigant-A-Ramp.
Fans can expect to see everything from kids’ trikes, snow skis, tandem bikes and razor scooters through to shopping trolleys, a Barbie car and a drinks cooler launched with skill off the Gigant-A-Ramp. There’s even a Guinness World Record breaking motorised toilet! The show also features stunning choreographed FMX riding, including the 10 rider Nitro backflip combination train, which has to be seen to be believed.
The UK looks set to go Nitro Circus mad this year with the global release of the Nitro Circus 3D movie in the autumn, as well as a series of TV programmes being discussed for UK broadcast. Travis Pastrana will also be featuring on 16 million Red Bull cans on sale throughout the UK in a special promotion with Red Bull UK, who are also supporting the live tour dates.
Speaking about the tour today Nitro Circus ring leader Travis Pastrana said: “I have never toured Europe or the UK before and I am so pumped about the opportunity for us to perform live in front of huge crowds over there in so many different countries and now Birmingham has joined the party. Nitro is all about us pushing each other to the limit every night so you never know what is going to happen at one of our shows!”
Managing Director of Nitro Circus Live, Michael Porra added: “ We are so excited about bringing this amazing tour to UK and Europe for the first time and giving fans the opportunity to see the biggest names in action sports. Due to overwhelming demand from our UK fans, we’re delighted that we’ll now be coming to Birmingham. It is the biggest production of its type to ever hit Europe with a huge cast of 35 performers. The show will completely blow your mind!”
