Nitro Circus Bring Spectacular Show to Sheffield

11th February 2016

Direct from sell out shows across the globe, the world's greatest action sports show -- Travis Pastrana's Nitro Circus Live is coming to Sheffield United's Bramall Lane stadium this summer.

Spectators will see the most explosive event in extreme sports with fans witnessing death-defying stunts, amazing tricks and unbelievable world firsts. The event is part of the Club's plans to develop the stadium as a venue currently celebrating its 160th anniversary - which can attract a wide range of events and attractions. Nitro Circus Live will play 13 shows in the UK and Ireland, coming to Bramall Lane on June 18. Tickets for the tour are on sale on Friday, February 12 from 10am via The show will utilise United's new pitch with the action taking place on a specially designed set with spectators watching from the South Stand. Nitro's cast of daredevils will perform the most incredible choreographed riding routines ever in freestyle motocross (FMX), BMX, skate and much more. Highlights will 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 fans in the Sheffield City Region have never experienced before. This will be one of the biggest, if not the biggest entertainment production ever to come to Sheffield. Nitro Circus Live has sold out legendary arenas such as the O2 in London, AccorHotels 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, Sheffield United fans do not want to miss their chance to see Nitro Circus Live. Sheffield United Vice Chairman, Martin Green, who was responsible for bringing Nitro Circus to Bramall Lane through his extensive contacts in the entertainment and leisure sector, said: -This is a major development for the Club as its seeks to make full use, year round of its growing facilities at the Bramall Lane Stadium. -The introduction of our new format pitch enables us to stage and attract high profile events such as the Nitro Circus during the close season bringing additional financial benefits which will help generate a positive economic impact for the Clun and the playing side as well as a boost for the Sheffield City region economy. -Hotels, restaurants, bars and many other business in the area will benefit from having Nitro Circus Live in Sheffield, added Martin. -Audience research clearly indicates 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 Sheffield. Michael Porra, Nitro Circus CEO and creative director, said: -We are so excited to bring the biggest, most daring action sports production ever staged to the UK. 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 UK 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 and towns what we're all about.
