  Global Action Sports Phenomenon Brings Spectacular New Show to Huish Park, Yeovil, Sunday 19th June 2016

Direct from sell out shows across the globe, the world’s greatest action sports show — Travis Pastrana’s Nitro Circus Live — will return to the U.K. this summer. Nitro Circus Live will play 13 area shows, including its first ever Ireland and Northern Island dates, giving fans the opportunity to see the most explosive event in extreme sports.

Fans can witness death-defying stunts, amazing tricks and unbelievable world firsts that have yet to be seen (even in competition) at Huish Park on Sunday 19th June 2016. Tickets go on sale tomorrow (Tuesday 9 February). Tickets can be purchased by clicking here.

Nitro’s cast of daredevils, the greatest action sports stars on the planet, will perform the most incredible choreographed riding routines ever in freestyle motocross (FMX), BMX, skate and much more. Highlights include the explosive “Nitro Bomb” featuring all riders flipping simultaneously. Plus, during FMX trains, riders will slice through the air wheel-to-wheel, mere inches apart.

Nitro Circus athletes will also brave the (in)famous 40-foot Giganta ramp, which will launch a host of ridiculous contraptions like trikes, a penny farthing, a lounge chair, a bathtub and much more. All of this mayhem in one show, requiring more than 15 trucks and 50 crew members to transport and set up, adds up to a theatrical spectacular area fans have never experienced before. This will be one of the biggest, if not the most massive, entertainment production ever to come to Yeovil.

Nitro Circus Live has sold out legendary arenas such as the O2 in London, Accor Hotels Arena (formerly Bercy Arena) in Paris and Madison Square Garden in New York. More than 35,000 people packed Johannesburg’s FNB Stadium, site of the 2010 soccer World Cup final, for a massive 2014 show; 45,000 filled Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena, the second highest attendance of any touring act at that venue. Now, people of Yeovil do not want to miss their chance to see Nitro Circus Live.

Fans looking for the ultimate Nitro Circus experience will want to check out the Nitro Club Experience. These exclusive passes include the best seats in the house as well as a chance to get up close and personal with the stars of Nitro Circus during an exclusive Q & A session where they will talk about life on the road and answer an array of very personal questions that fans would not normally hear at a show or in the media. Nitro Club pass holders will also receive a souvenir lanyard and electronically signed Nitro poster, as well as a chance to win cool Nitro swag.

The positive economic impact the tour will generate also means Yeovil businesses can anticipate receiving a major boost with the show’s arrival drawing thousands of people to the town.

“Hotels, restaurants, bars and practically every other business in Yeovil will benefit from having Nitro Circus Live in town,” Yeovil Town Commercial manager Dave Linney, said. “Through audience research we’ve seen that fans are blown away, saying it’s the most exciting show they’ve ever seen.  We’re thrilled to bring an event that has sold out huge stadiums across the globe to Huish Park, The Home of Yeovil Town Football Club.”
