Highlights From the Last Two New Zealand Shows

February 17, 2017

What a tour. We closed out the first leg of our 2017 season with two huge shows in New Zealand. In Tauranga, an emotional start to the show, as we remembered Christian, a key part of the Nitro security staff who we recently lost. A huge group of Christian’s friends and family gathered and performed a Haka, which is a powerful symbol whenever it’s done, but especially so when it’s in honor of a great friend we lost too soon. With the energy set at maximum before it even started, the show went off, and the Crew unanimously decided to award Christian’s family the MVC, which prompted another Haka from them. Check it out (photos and videos by Lisa Sabalvaro):

Unforgettable. In New Plymouth, a rain delay didn’t dampen the crowd’s spirits as the weather cleared and the Crew was able to put on a huge show. Todd Meyn stuck a World First in practice, and Levi Sherwood took home the MVC for his flawless performances for the whole tour in his home country. We’re over the moon at how well this year has started, and we’re headed to Japan and then Australia to keep the fun going. There are a ton of highlights from both shows below, so sit back, relax, and enjoy the mayhem:
