Direct from sell out shows across the globe, Travis Pastrana’s Nitro Circus Live is hitting the UK and Ireland this summer for their first ever UK outdoor stadium tour. And the world’s biggest live action sports show visited 11 first-time markets including Windsor Park in Belfast on Friday 10th June 2016.
Fans from across the UK would be given the opportunity to see the most explosive event in extreme sports and witness death-defying stunts, amazing tricks and unbelievable world firsts that have yet to be seen.
Nitro’s cast of daredevils will perform the most incredible choreographed riding routines ever in freestyle motocross (FMX), BMX, skate and much more.
Highlights include the explosive “Nitro Bomb” featuring all riders flipping simultaneously. Plus, during FMX trains, riders will slice through the air wheel-to-wheel, mere inches apart.
Nitro Circus athletes will also brave the (in)famous 40-foot Giganta ramp, which will launch a host of ridiculous contraptions like trikes, a penny farthing, a lounge chair, a bathtub and much more.
All of this mayhem in one show, requiring more than 15 trucks and 50 crew members to transport and set up, adds up to a theatrical spectacular area fans have never experienced before.
This will be one of the biggest, if not the most massive, entertainment production ever to come to venues across the UK.
Michael Porra, Nitro Circus CEO and creative director, said: “We are so excited to bring the biggest, most daring action sports production ever staged to the UK. Our insane group of athletes perform stunts that you literally cannot see anywhere else on the planet.
“We’re constantly pushing each other to break records and do things that people previously thought was physically impossible. We had an epic time in the UK this year, and we were pumped on just how many people came out to see us.
“Now we’re ready to show a whole bunch of new cities and towns what we’re all about. This is our first series of UK outdoor shows and we’re performing at some awesome outdoor locations.”
Irish FA Chief Executive Patrick Nelson said: “We are delighted to welcome Nitro Circus to the National Football Stadium at Windsor Park.
“It will be the first large scale non-football sporting event to be staged at the redeveloped stadium and is in keeping with our plans to make it more than just a football stadium.
“We want it to be a venue for concerts and entertainment, large scale community activities and other sports events, so Nitro Circus is a great first step in that direction.”
