FMX: Clock counting down for Perth Crusty Demons show

Excitement is building for Perth fans as the countdown commences to the record-breaking Crusty Demons Thirst 4 Destruction Tour, which is set to kick-off at Perth’s Burswood Dome on October 16.

The entire rider line-up and crew will arrive in the state for rehearsals a week prior to the illustrious event, including two local identities – six-year-old FMX prodigy Jasyn Roney and Australia’s Got Talent finalist, The Bad Piper.

Hailing from Wilga in Western Australia, Roney is the Crusty Demons’ youngest ever grommet. The St Mary’s Boyup Brook student has been riding since he was just 2-years-old and will make his highly-anticipated Crusty Demons debut in Perth.

Perth’s own The Bad Piper, who gained national recognition after appearing on Australia’s Got Talent, will also return to familiar soil for the tour and is set to captivate fans with his theatrical world first, flame-throwing, punk-rock piper act.

Otherwise known as Cam McAzie, The Bad Piper is looking forward to his first tour with the Crusty Demons.

“This will be the biggest thing I have ever done in my career,” McAzie stated.

“I have idolised the Crusty Demons for 10 – 15 years now so the possibility to work with them is a dream come true and something I never thought I would do in a musical sense.

“As a musician I never knew where my career was going and certainly never envisaged that my biggest musical exposure would come from a non musical event.

“It is so not music but it sits so well. I am the ‘backflipping dirtbike’ of modern music and I will be showcasing extreme music for extreme motorcycles,” he concluded.

The Crusty Demons legendary ringmaster and crash king Bubba has already arrived in Australia to commence work with producers David Atkins and Ignatius Jones in creating the cutting edge video and animation features.

“I’ve been doing the Crusty tour since the beginning and I am absolutely blown away by the new show plan,” Bubba said.

“A brand spanking new show is jam-packed full of the biggest stunts and craziest mayhem I’ve ever seen!

“The amount of rider talent we have lined up will be a world first. Not to mention the best live show producers in the world to kick it a couple of notches higher than we have ever been.

“It is safe to say that the Crusty Demons fans are in for one hell of a show. We are back in a big way,” Bubba stated.

Cutting-edge pyrotechnics will fire around 2,000 shots from over 20 positions around the arena while the massive 200m2 video screen will beam animated graphics, more Crusty chronicles and live FMX action as the show delves into the history of one the most successful touring acts in the world – the Crusty Demons of Dirt.

The awesome new show will see the Crusty Demons return to dirt, with around 1000 tonnes of dirt to form the all-new interactive arena which will also feature two giant gangways allowing for cross-over trick-runs and the longest jumps ever seen in Australian arenas.

The unique show layout will allow for world firsts in FMX tricks such as Robbie Maddison’s death defying ceiling drop in, Jackson Strong’s front flip and Kain Saul’s Harley Davidson back flip.

Headlined by Australia’s very own modern-day Evel Knievel Robbie Maddison, Thirst 4 Destruction sees the introduction of Australia’s first ever female FMX rider Emma McFerran.

The incredible rider line-up features some of the best FMX riders from around the globe and reunites the Australian public with arguably the biggest name in FMX – Mike Metzger.

Metzger is joined by some of the world’s best FMX riders from around the globe, including Taka Higashino, Seth Enslow, Mike Mason, Adam Jones, Nate Adams and Beau Bamburg.

The Crusty Demons Thirst 4 Destruction show will be held on October 16 at Perth’s Burswood Dome.
