Hitting London tonight after a sell-out tour in Australia and New Zealand, Travis Pastrana’s Nitro Circus Live promises an adrenaline-packed live show.
Coming to the UK and Europe for the first time, it promises to be the world’s biggest and most audacious action sports production ever staged.
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 including shopping trolleys.
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 spectacular choreographed FMX riding, including the incredible Nitro “bomb”; 18 riders upside down in the air at the same time.
Speaking about the tour Nitro Circus ring-leader Travis Pastrana said: “I have never toured Europe 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.
“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!”
A state-of-the-art, multi-million dollar set has been created for the European tour, which will allow the massive production to perform on successive nights in different cities throughout Europe and a one-off show at the O2 in London tonight – December 3.
It is the first of its kind for an action sports event anywhere in the world and requires 10 trucks to transport the set.
The tour will reach its grand finale in the UK at the O2 Arena in London on December 3, The Manchester Arena on December 4 and end at the NIA Birmingham on December 5 before heading to Europe.
