NITRO CIRCUS LIVE RETURNS TO AUSTRALIA FOR 2015
Friday 26 September 2014 10:46am
After a hugely successful 2013 trek, Nitro Circus Live is set to light up cities and towns across Australia once again next year. Travis Pastrana and his team of the world’s best action sports athletes are gearing up for an eight-city Regional Tour.
Kicking off on Saturday, 21 February at GIO Stadium, Canberra, the 2015 Nitro Circus Live Regional Tour will travel across six states and Territories, culminating with an ANZAC weekend spectacular in Darwin on Friday, 24 April.
The tour will also feature shows in Wollongong, Hobart, Newcastle, Gold Coast, Mackay and an outdoor extravaganza in Adelaide at the Adelaide Oval.
Nitro Circus Live has captured the imagination of people wherever it travels and the Regional Tour will be no exception, with spectators given a rare opportunity to experience 17-time X Games medallist Travis Pastrana live in a show that sold out some of the biggest arenas in the world.
Pastrana is the biggest name in action sports and after successful stints in Super Cross, Rally and NASCAR, will return to his beloved Moto for next year’s Australian Regional Tour.
Joining Pastrana will be recently crowned X-Fighters champion and world number one freestyle motocross rider Josh Sheehan, who will attempt the most dangerous trick in action sports, his signature double backflip.
The 2015 Regional Tour will also feature an all-new ‘retro’ themed production, which has been choreographed and styled as a 1920’s, Barnum & Bailey Style circus.
Set on a stunning multi-million dollar set, the retro theme has provided a perfect backdrop for Pastrana, Sheehan and all the stars of Nitro Circus Live to showcase their aerial acrobatic skills to hundreds of thousands of fans around the world.
While FMX and BMX is sure to get pulses racing, a range of new contraptions including a bath tub, rocking horse and penny farthing set to test even the most brazen Nitro Circus Live performer!
The 2015 Regional Tour will see Nitro Circus Live reward its loyal fan bases in Newcastle, Gold Coast, Wollongong and Canberra with return engagements, while also expanding into three new territories – Hobart, Mackay and Darwin.
On Saturday, 21 March, Nitro Circus Live will break new ground when our athletes showcase their death-defying skills at the spiritual home of sport in South Australia, the Adelaide Oval.
“Nitro Circus Live is one of the hottest touring acts on the planet and I’m delighted to be able to give our fans across regional Australia an opportunity to experience a show that has captivated millions of people around the world.” Nitro Circus CEO Michael Porra said.
“We have spared no expense in bringing this show to back to Australia. Fans in Hobart, Mackay, Wollongong and all the regional centres will be able to watch the same athletes that have performed at the O2 Arena in London and Madison Square Garden in New York”
“Five years ago Nitro Circus Live began with a desire to give people in towns and cities across Australia a taste of extreme action sports and I’m thrilled to be able to take this all-new show back to our heartland areas.”
“Tickets are sure to sell out fast in some of our venues so I encourage fans to get in early for this once in a lifetime extreme sports extravaganza!” Mr Porra said.
