Nitro Circus, the world’s most successful action sports touring brand is coming to Peterborough as part of a UK summer tour.
Following huge shows at Manchester Arena, Glasgow’s Hydro and London’s 02, Nitro Circus has announced a summer tour which includes Peterborough Arena on Saturday July 2.
Direct from sell out shows across the globe, what’s billed as ‘the world’s greatest action sports show’ – Travis Pastrana’s Nitro Circus Live – will return to the UK and Ireland this summer for its first ever UK outdoor stadium tour.
Fans from Peterborough will 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 (even in competition).
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.”
Nitro’s cast of daredevils, the greatest action sports stars on the planet, 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.
Nitro Circus Live has sold out legendary arenas such as the O2 in London, AccorHotels Arena (formerly Bercy Arena) in Paris and Madison Square Garden in New York. More than 35,000 people packed Johannesburg’s FNB Stadium, site of the 2010 soccer World Cup final, for a massive 2014 show; 45,000 filled Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena, the second highest attendance of any touring act at that venue. Now, fans from across the UK do not want to miss their chance to see Nitro Circus Live.
