(Macao, June 25, 2013) - The gravity-defying Travis Pastrana's Nitro Circus Live will perform two high-octane action sport shows Aug. 17 and 18 at the CotaiArena™, The Venetian® Macao, with tickets going on sale Wednesday, June 26 at all CotaiTicketing™ box offices*.
Nitro Circus Live showcases over 40 of the world's best action sports athletes performing daring and often record-breaking tricks in freestyle motocross, BMX and skateboarding, along with heart-stopping stunts on unique contraptions rarely attempted outside of the Nitro Circus family. They will also be pushing their limits and skill on skates, scooters and a range of unorthodox conveyances, including a drink cooler, Barbie car, toy trike, shopping trolley, boogie board and many more.
Originally a small DVD series, Nitro Circus grew into a successful MTV show with over 46 million U.S. viewers and broadcast to 60 countries worldwide; it arrives at The Venetian Macao with two live shows, featuring a performance of the extraordinary hole-in-one - where riders launch 50 feet into the air off the Gigant-A-Ramp, attempting to land with pinpoint accuracy inside an inflatable Zorb ball.
In November and December 2012, Nitro Circus Live performed sell-out shows across its first tour of Europe, after bringing crowds to their feet across Australia, New Zealand and in Las Vegas. For the first time in Nitro Circus Live history, the crew will travel to Macao to perform two spectacular shows in front of a whole new set of fans at The Venetian Macao.
