Nitro Circus, the global youth entertainment phenomenon, returns to North America this year with the epic Next Level Tour. The most spectacular full-moto show ever seen, The Next Level Tour will feature gravity-defying tricks, jaw-dropping world firsts and absurd stunts. It all adds up to a thrilling show simply too big to fit indoors. The Next Level Tour launches in mid-May, just in time for summer, and will visit over 10 cities across the continent through June.
The high-octane excitement of Nitro Circus: the Next Level Tour is coming to Kelowna’s Apple Bowl Stadium on Friday, May 25. Tickets can be purchased at nitrocircus.live.
Brainchild of Travis Pastrana – global superstar, action sports icon and Nitro Circus ringleader – the Next Level Tourstuntfeatures the best athletes in action sports taking on the biggest ramps in the world. The Nitro Circus design team has put it all on the line with this show doubling down on the risk factor. The FMX Next Level takeoff ramp alone, towering 15-feet above the show floor (five feet taller than anything toured before) launches riders more than 60-feet into the sky. The lander also looms large, standing 23-feet high.
This innovative setup, the result of years of research and development, was first dreamed up at Travis’ “Pastranaland” compound and then perfected at Nitro World Games. These breakthrough designs were never supposed to tour, as they were considered far too large and complex. But Nitro Circus was determined to showcase them to fans around the world and now, after months of hard work, these ramps are hitting the road.
In addition to pushing FMX to its limits, one Nitro Circus daredevil will go airborne on a 450-pound snowmobile while a new cast of hilarious characters will take stupid to an entirely new level, flipping motorized contraptions too ridiculous to be believed.
FIRST TOUR STOP FOOTAGE IN ST. GEORGE UTAH
Dov Ribnick, Nitro Circus’ Vice President – Creative, said: “I’m so stoked to be taking this set on the road. This really is a breakthrough in FMX and the team we have assembled can’t wait to throw down the biggest new tricks in FMX on this tour.”
As if they needed more motivation, every night Nitro’s riders will battle in a full throttle Next Level Series FMX competition. For the first time, Nitro Circus will host an in-show competition to find out just who is the gnarliest rider on the planet. At each tour stop a panel of judges will determine a winner with the overall champion crowned at the end of the tour. While cash prizes are on the line, bragging rights are truly the top prize here.
Also new for 2018, Kelowna fans can also get up close and personal with the Nitro crew thanks to the Nitro VIP Club package. In addition to having premiere seats, VIP Club pass holders will now have the chance to take a behind the scenes look at the show with an exclusive pre-show track walk. VIP Club pass holders also have the opportunity to meet some of the riders during an autograph signing session, receive a souvenir poster and get a chance to win cool Nitro Circus swag.
