NITRO CIRCUS LIVE MAKES WINDSOR DEBUT

After crisscrossing the planet last year during its biggest tour yet, Travis Pastrana’s Nitro Circus Live will return to North America for more high adrenaline excitement in 2017. Windsor fans now have the chance to see the death-defying stunts and mind-blowing tricks that have captivated sold out audiences worldwide when the global action sports phenomenon visits the Windsor Stadium on Saturday, July 29.

Nitro Circus Live showcases an all-star international lineup of world-class action sports athletes, loaded with the best riders in freestyle motocross (FMX), BMX, scooter and inline – including multiple X Games medalists. They will perform the biggest tricks in action sports, plus attempt unbelievable world’s firsts never seen before. Nitro Circus Lives daredevils will also ride a host of outrageous new contraptions off the famous 40-foot Giganta Ramp, such as tricycles, a wheeled recliner and more. Featuring an exciting set geared for an outdoor stadium experience, Nitro Circus Live is a spectacular and entertaining event that is fun for fans of all ages.

Fans looking for the ultimate Nitro Circus experience will want to get their hands on the Nitro Club VIP package. Starting at just $99 each (plus applicable service fees), these passes include the best seats in the house, a sneak peak at rider rehearsal, plus a chance to see a different side of the Nitro Circus athletes during a pre-show Q & A session. Nitro Club pass holders will also receive a souvenir lanyard and an electronically signed Nitro Circus poster, as well as a chance to win cool Nitro Circus swag.

Since it’s 2010 debut, Nitro Circus Live has thrilled more than three million fans in over 160 cities on five continents. The tour has sold out New York City’s iconic Madison Square Garden and played double sellouts at both London’s O2 arena and the Tokyo Dome. Now Windsor fans will get to experience the heart-pumping rush that is Nitro Circus Live.

Nitro Circus Live also marks another chapter in the ongoing revitalization of the historic Windsor Stadium complex, demonstrating the wide range of sports and entertainment events that the facility can bring to the community. The Windsor Stadium Restoration Project was created in February 2015 to connect likeminded members from diverse backgrounds to help restore Windsor Stadium to its former glory where it can serve the Greater Essex County as a premier venue for sports, heritage, culture and the arts. This will provide a greater outreach and improved opportunities to Windsor’s youth, promote Windsor-Essex as a year-round festival tourist destination and assist in the development of new festivals and events in the Windsor-Essex region.

Nitro Circus continues to position itself as the world’s leading youth action sports & entertainment brand. From humble beginnings in 2003 – with Jeremy Rawle, Gregg Godfrey and soon to be action sports superstar Travis Pastrana producing DVDs from a Utah garage — to a smash TV series which has aired in over 60 countries, Nitro Circus has exploded to global popularity. In 2012, Nitro Circus: The Movie, featuring cast members from the hit television series, was released in cinemas worldwide. In 2015, Nitro Circus announced a partnership with NBC Sports Ventures.  The multi-year strategic alliance features TV specials and live events, such as Nitro World Games, and series programming airing nationally in the U.S. on NBC and NBCSN as well as streamed on the NBC Sports App.

The TV show was transformed by action sports industry guru Michael Porra into a must-see live event in 2010 creating the Nitro Circus Live global touring phenomenon. Since its inaugural Australian trek six years ago, the show has travelled the globe, breaking box office records and cultivating a legion of diehard fans. Nitro Circus has now rolled across five continents, blown away over three million fans and sold out shows in the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia, China, Japan, the Middle East and South Africa. After over 70 shows globally in 2016 and with more shows coming up worldwide in 2017, Nitro Circus is undoubtedly the world’s most successful action sports touring brand.
