Nitro Circus Live is "the world's greatest live action show" which has sold over 600,000 tickets in less than 3 years. Having toured Australia, New Zealand, America and many European countries, it offers "death defying stunts, mind-blowing tricks and crazy antics" which have outsold acts such as U2 and AC/DC.
Nitro Circus Live is the "Cirque du Soleil" of action sports and it's on its way to the Gold Coast as part of its Australian Regional Tour. Saturday 20th April 2013 is the date and Skilled Park is the venue in Robina. Tickets are on sale through Ticketek. Ticket price ranges from $55 to $149 (plus a one off transaction fee of $4.95).
The cast of 40 athletes includes: 13 times X Games medalist Nate Adams (USA), Cam Sinclair (AUS) as well as multiple X Games medalists Blake 'Bilko' Williams (AUS) and Sydney X Fighters Champion Josh Sheehan (AUS).
The bikes are only part of the show, as these extreme sports riders also make use of anything with wheels, such as a shopping trolley, toy trike, snow skis and a Barbie car to name but a few. Also hurling himself off the 50 foot high Nitro Gigant-A-Ramp, will be Aaron "Wheelz" Fotheringham (USA), the world's only extreme wheelchair athlete. You've got to see him to believe what he can tackle.
The show is famous for its riders, stunts and incredible choreographed riding routines. The "Nitro Bomb" features 18 riders in the air, upside down at the same time.
So if you are up for night of stunts and showmanship then book your tickets for Skilled Park. To check out the rider line up and for ticket information, visit the Nitro Circus Live website. Perhaps pack ear plugs for anyone (your kids?) that don't like loud noise and get ready for the energy and action to blow you away. If it's action you are after, you won't be disappointed.
