FMX: Nitro Circus Live adds a third show in Melbourne

Due to unprecedented demand, a third and final Nitro Circus Live show went on sale in Melbourne yesterday, making it the most popular live action sports show to ever tour Australia.

Nitro Circus Live (NCL) made its worldwide debut in Brisbane on 7 May and received rave reviews. Since then it has blown audiences away at sold out shows in Sydney and Perth, with huge demand for tickets for the final tour stops in Adelaide and Melbourne leading to the third show at Rod Laver Arena on Sunday, 6 June, marking a three-day visit after it’s also shown on the Friday and Saturday nights.

The NCL world tour has its roots in the smash hit MTV series which follows the crazy antics of Travis Pastrana and his crew and has aired to huge ratings in over 60 countries.

The show is the most spectacular live action sports show ever produced and combines the biggest and best FMX stunts with insane action on BMX and skateboard as well as the famous Nitro Circus crew performing outrageous stunts on crazy contraptions launched off the 50 foot Nitro Gigant-A-Ramp as part of a multi-million dollar set.

The promoter of NCL, Michael Porra, said he has been blown away by the response to the tour.

“Australian fans are the first to see this amazing show, which will go on to tour the world and we couldn’t be happier with the response we have received,” Porra said.

“Nitro Circus Live is going to be a global touring powerhouse and the energy and creativity coming from these guys is phenomenal. The demand for a third show in Melbourne is testament to this and I am so pleased more fans will get to experience the action sports theatrical spectacular.”

NCL stars 14 times X Games medalist, Travis Pastrana (USA), current X Games gold medalist in Freestyle Motocross – Blake ‘Bilko’ Williams (AUS), current X Games gold medalist in skateboard Big Air – Jake Brown (AUS), X Games gold medalist in BMX – Chad Kagy (USA), all the stars from the MTV show and a host of the greatest action sports stars in the world.
