This summer in New Zealand, the greatest Action Sports star on the planet, Travis Pastrana, will unite with the world’s biggest names in FMX, BMX and Skate, including Kiwi riders Levi Sherwood, Nick Franklin and Jed Mildon, in a brand new Nitro Circus Live tour.
The tour marks the highly anticipated return of Pastrana, Nitro Circus founder and 17 times X Games medalist, to the sport that rocketed him to international superstardom, freestyle motocross. The upcoming tour will be the first time Pastrana has ridden in New Zealand since 2011.
Coupled with Pastrana’s return is an all-new show, which has been painstakingly developed over the past five years. In its latest inception, Nitro Circus Live is going ‘retro’, with the entire performance choreographed and styled as a 1920’s, Barnum & Bailey type circus. This tour boasts a multi-million dollar set with unbelievable features and a whole new repertoire of antics, contraptions, dare devil fun and of course the biggest tricks in action sports today.
“This new show is the biggest and most audacious action sports production ever staged,” said Nitro Circus Live CEO, Michael Porra. “It’s a truly exciting, adrenaline-charged, live show featuring an insane group of athletes who push each other to new extremes every single show.”
Attracting an ever-growing worldwide audience, Nitro Circus Live has been touring in the world’s most iconic venues, dazzling more than 1. 5 million fans since their last New Zealand stop in 2011.
“Nitro Circus Live sold out the MGM Grand in Las Vegas and Madison Square Gardens in New York. We saw standing ovations there and on every stop during our European tour,” said Porra
The five-city arena tour will see the Nitro Circus crew performing at key venues across New Zealand.
Fans can expect the Kiwi trio of Levi Sherwood, world-first BMX triple back flipper Jed ‘The Warrior’ Mildon, and New Zealand’s original FMX star Nick Franklin star in front of a passionate home crowd.
Palmerston North’s Levi Sherwood, who is one of the top FMX stars in the world, returns to home turf for his first Nitro Circus New Zealand tour in four years.
In addition to the New Zealand natives, the ever-growing cast of action sports super-stars includes: Josh Sheehan, Blake ‘Bilko’ Williams, Adam Jones, Andy Buckworth, Ryan Williams and Aaron ‘Wheelz’ Fotheringham
The audience will experience the world’s only ‘Hole in One’ – innovated in New Zealand on the last tour – where riders launch 50 feet into the air off the Gigant-A-Ramp and attempt to land with pinpoint accuracy inside an inflatable zorb ball.
The show also includes a host of mind-bending new tricks on a cavalcade of ridiculous, never-before-seen contraptions off the jacked-up Nitro Gigant-A-Ramp, which is 10-feet bigger, and will launch riders up to 20-feet further than ever before.

After a hugely successful 2013 trek, Nitro Circus Live is set to light up cities and towns across Australia once again next year. Travis Pastrana and his team of the world’s best action sports athletes are gearing up for an eight-city Regional Tour.
Kicking off on Saturday, 21 February at GIO Stadium, Canberra, the 2015 Nitro Circus Live Regional Tour will travel across six states and Territories, culminating with an ANZAC weekend spectacular in Darwin on Friday, 24 April.
The tour will also feature shows in Wollongong, Hobart, Newcastle, Gold Coast, Mackay and an outdoor extravaganza in Adelaide at the Adelaide Oval.
Nitro Circus Live has captured the imagination of people wherever it travels and the Regional Tour will be no exception, with spectators given a rare opportunity to experience 17-time X Games medallist Travis Pastrana live in a show that sold out some of the biggest arenas in the world.
Pastrana is the biggest name in action sports and after successful stints in Super Cross, Rally and NASCAR, will return to his beloved Moto for next year’s Australian Regional Tour.
Joining Pastrana will be recently crowned X-Fighters champion and world number one freestyle motocross rider Josh Sheehan, who will attempt the most dangerous trick in action sports, his signature double backflip.
The 2015 Regional Tour will also feature an all-new ‘retro’ themed production, which has been choreographed and styled as a 1920’s, Barnum & Bailey Style circus.
Set on a stunning multi-million dollar set, the retro theme has provided a perfect backdrop for Pastrana, Sheehan and all the stars of Nitro Circus Live to showcase their aerial acrobatic skills to hundreds of thousands of fans around the world.
While FMX and BMX is sure to get pulses racing, a range of new contraptions including a bath tub, rocking horse and penny farthing set to test even the most brazen Nitro Circus Live performer!
The 2015 Regional Tour will see Nitro Circus Live reward its loyal fan bases in Newcastle, Gold Coast, Wollongong and Canberra with return engagements, while also expanding into three new territories – Hobart, Mackay and Darwin.
On Saturday, 21 March, Nitro Circus Live will break new ground when our athletes showcase their death-defying skills at the spiritual home of sport in South Australia, the Adelaide Oval.
“Nitro Circus Live is one of the hottest touring acts on the planet and I’m delighted to be able to give our fans across regional Australia an opportunity to experience a show that has captivated millions of people around the world.” Nitro Circus CEO Michael Porra said.
“We have spared no expense in bringing this show to back to Australia. Fans in Hobart, Mackay, Wollongong and all the regional centres will be able to watch the same athletes that have performed at the O2 Arena in London and Madison Square Garden in New York”
“Five years ago Nitro Circus Live began with a desire to give people in towns and cities across Australia a taste of extreme action sports and I’m thrilled to be able to take this all-new show back to our heartland areas.”
“Tickets are sure to sell out fast in some of our venues so I encourage fans to get in early for this once in a lifetime extreme sports extravaganza!” Mr Porra said.

You’d think our athletes would want to relax in their downtime before they head out on our most massive global tour to date in 2015. Well it’s tough keeping these guys quiet for long and, frankly, they just get bored if they’re not jumping off something. Travis Pastrana has announced that he’s working on a new film called Action Figures. For all you lifelong enthusiasts, this film will be a callback to the DVDs of old which Trav and his friends grew up watching. Action Figures is like an extreme music video with members of the Nitro Circus family performing some of the most amazing tricks ever caught on tape. The ramps are bigger and the stakes are higher. It’s meant to push the limits of what you thought was possible.
Travis explains it in more detail here:
Keep checking back to NitroCircus.com for updates regarding the release of the film. Trav is actively working on it now but if you can’t wait until late 2014 to see it, you can follow his progress with our online exclusive web series where we get a glimpse at the types of tricks that are going down. Trust us, the most common phrases you’ll see with this film and web series are ‘world first’ and ‘world record’ – it’s that EPIC. For starters, check out the world’s first and second triple flip on a mountain bike:
We hope that wet your appetite. Make sure you subscribe to our YouTube channel to follow Trav’s progress as he works to bring you Action Figures.
