U.S. & Canada with a 15-City Arena Tour Beginning January 2014
Pre-Sale for Select Cities Begins May 21
Los Angeles – May 21, 2013 – Nitro Circus founder, ringleader and world-class athlete Travis Pastrana will bring Nitro Circus Live (www.nitrocircuslive.com) - the action sports spectacle that has become a worldwide hit - to the U.S. and Canada for the first time in January 2014. Nitro Circus Live showcases over 40 of the world’s best action sports athletes performing daring and often record-breaking tricks in freestyle motocross, BMX and skateboarding, along with heart stopping stunts on unique contraptions rarely attempted outside of the Nitro Circus family. Featuring the stars of Nitro Circus’ hit MTV2 show and Nitro Circus 3D film, the tour is headed up by Pastrana, a 10-time X Games gold medalist in Freestyle Motocross who has also become a fixture on the NASCAR, Supercross and rally racing circuits. Tickets for eight cities go on pre-sale beginning tonight at 10:00 p.m. (EDT) and to the general public Friday, May 24. Tickets can be purchased through www.nitrocircuslive.com.
“This tour is the biggest and most audacious action sports production ever staged,” says Pastrana. “This is truly an exciting, adrenaline-charged, live action sports show featuring an insane group of athletes who push each other to new extremes every single show.”

Originally a small DVD series filmed in Pastrana’s Maryland backyard, Nitro Circus grew into a successful MTV show with over 46 million U.S. viewers and broadcast in 60 countries worldwide. The next step was Nitro Circus Live, which has captured the imagination of fans worldwide with a string of sell-out shows and record-breaking crowds across Europe, Australia and New Zealand. “I’m so pumped we can finally bring this home for fans to enjoy,” says Pastrana.
Nitro Circus Live’s fully choreographed action sports spectacular combines big stunts and outrageous feats on an array of contraptions launched off Nitro Circus Live’s multi-million dollar set and famous 50-ft. Nitro Gigant-A-Ramp. “Fans can expect to see everything from kids’ trikes, snow skis, tandem bikes and razor scooters to shopping carts, a Barbie car and even a cooler launched with skill off the Gigant-A-Ramp,” says Pastrana. “The live show also features spectacular choreographed freestyle motocross riding, including the outrageous ‘Nitro Bomb’ with 20 riders back-flipping in the air at the same time.”

“Nitro Circus Live sold out the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. We saw standing ovations there and at every stop on last year’s European tour; we broke ticket sale records in Australia and were the highest selling tour in New Zealand in 2011, beating AC/DC and U2,” said Managing Director of Nitro Circus Live, Michael Porra. “We can’t wait to bring our crazy antics to cities across North America.”
