Nitro Circus Live, which in 2011 was the number one touring act in New Zealand, will return to once again take the city by storm. The ground-breaking action sports icon will come to New Zealand direct from a 13-stop tour across Europe, and will be rolling through Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington, Christchurch & Dunedin.
Wellington fans will bear witness to all kinds of mayhem, as the world’s best action sports athletes in FMX, BMX and skate take centre stage. Then, prepare to be stunned as the 40 person strong crew strap themselves into the crazy Nitro contraptions, and launch themselves off the 50-foot high Nitro Gigant-A-Ramp.
Headlining the tour will be the Nitro Crew, from the hit MTV series and the 3D movie, which is set to be released in cinemas worldwide, including New Zealand, late in 2012.
13 times X Games medallist Nate Adams (USA) and the only rider performing consistent double backflips, Cam Sinclair (AUS) will be performing, as well as multiple X Games medallists Blake ‘Bilko’ Williams (AUS), Sydney X Fighters Champion Josh Sheehan (AUS), and more.
Some of the best BMX riders in the world will also feature, including X-Games medalist and double front-flipping Aussie Andy Buckworth (AUS) and James Foster (USA), the only man in the world who is regularly throwing down the triple backflip.
Fan favourite and extreme wheelchair athlete Aaron “Wheelz” Fotheringham (USA) will excite and inspire with his courage and skill on the 50 foot ramp, and fans can also expect to see the most spectacular choreographed riding on the planet.
