THUNDER BAY – ENTERTAINMENT – Direct from sell-out shows across the globe, Travis Pastrana’s Nitro Circus Live will visit Thunder Bay for the first time in history when it returns to North America for a 40-city tour starting in April. Fans now have the chance to see the death-defying stunts and mind-blowing tricks that have captivated sold-out audiences worldwide when Nitro Circus Live, the most explosive live event to ever visit Thunder Bay, takes over Port Arthur Stadium on Saturday, August 20. Tickets are on sale March 11.
Nitro Circus’ daredevils, the greatest action sports stars on the planet, will perform the most incredible choreographed riding routines in freestyle motocross (FMX), BMX, skate and more for theatrical spectacular area fans have never experienced before. Highlights include the explosive “Nitro Bomb” featuring all riders simultaneously flipping through the air. During FMX trains, riders slice and dice, wheel-to-wheel mere inches apart before descending to earth for a smooth landing. The (in)famous 40-foot Giganta ramp is the centrepiece of the action and launches brave Nitro Circus riders high above the crowds while attempting another flurry of jaw-dropping tricks on ridiculous contraptions like trikes, a recliner, a bathtub and much more.
Nitro Circus Live has sold out legendary arenas such as Madison Square Garden in New York and the O2 in London. 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, Thunder Bay fans do not want to miss their chance to see Nitro Circus Live.
