EVENT: Travis Pastrana Announces 2015 Nitro Circus U.S. Tour Dates

Nitro Circus has transformed into a large scale live show featuring 40 of the best action sports athletes; but what you may not know, is the show was originally created to be a small DVD series by Travis Pastrana himself. After getting picked up by MTV and gaining 46 million viewers in the U.S. alone, the T.V. show grew into the most insane live show ever created. Nitro Circus Live crossed over to the American market in 2014 after great success in the Asia, European, and Australian markets. In May 2015, Nitro Circus Live will return to America, with 14 tour dates recently announced.

“We are building on the huge global success of Nitro Circus and can’t wait to return to North America in 2015,” said Managing Director of Nitro Circus Live Michael Porra. “We are breaking ticket sales records in Asia, Europe, Australia and New Zealand and sold out arenas at nearly every stop on our first U.S. tour last year. It’s been a big year for Nitro Circus, and we can’t wait to bring the crew’s crazy antics to 14 brand new cities across the country.”

Travis Pastrana stated, “We are stoked to bring the biggest, most daring action sports production ever staged back home where Nitro Circus started years ago.” In fact, Travis and the crew were so excited for the announcement, they called up a few friends and announced the first 14 tour dates on Facebook and YouTube, live. If you missed the announcement, don’t worry! We have it for you here:

What can you expect from the 2015 Nitro Circus Live tour? Trikes, snow skis, a bath tub on wheels, tandem bikes, razor scooters, shopping carts, and even a Barbie car all launched off of the 50-foot high ramp know as the Nitro Gigant-A-Ramp. Travis breaks it down for us here: “Our insane group of athletes perform stunts that you literally cannot see anywhere else on the planet. We’re constantly pushing each other to break records and do things that people previously thought was physically impossible. We had an epic time in the US earlier this year, and we were pumped on just how many people came out to see us. Now we’re ready to show a whole bunch of new cities what we’re all about.”
