World-renowned action sports extravaganza Nitro Circus will make its much-anticipated Bundaberg debut on Saturday, 28 March 2020.
It's been revealed the daredevil athletes will be performing at the Recreation Precinct in a specially constructed temporary arena thanks to support from Bundaberg Regional Council.
Council has provided $10,000 sponsorship and free venue hire to bring Nitro Circus to Bundaberg.
Nitro Circus chief executive Andy Edwards said the event has always had a strong following in regional Queensland.
“We’ve always wanted to play Bundaberg,” he said.
“We were close once before. But it’s official now, and we are beyond stoked to be bringing the biggest and best action sports tour on the planet to Bundy.”
With no roof there are no limits.
The huge stage set for You Got This features the legendary Giganta ramp that launches athletes five storeys into the air.
On the moto side, Nitro Circus’ elite FMX athletes will perform highly choreographed tricks, including many you won’t see anywhere else. The production team is also cooking up some crazy new contraptions to launch through the sky.
The You Got This tour features a cast of top-tier international athletes and thrill-loving daredevils, including one of Queensland’s own, scooter and BMX sensation Ryan Williams.
Coming off an historic X Games triumph last month after winning BMX Big Air gold three consecutive times in Sydney, Shanghai and Minneapolis – the first athlete to achieve such a three-peat – Williams can't wait to throw down in front of his home crowd.
“The past 12 months for me have been absolutely amazing. I still can’t believe everything that has happened,” he said.
“I’m beyond stoked to not only get my home town show on the Sunshine Coast, but also to perform in front of a brand-new audience in Bundaberg.
“I can't wait, Queensland fans rule!
“There’s so many emotions. I just can’t wait to get back on the ramp and put on a big show and show what we can do!”
Nitro Circus has produced more than 380 shows across 37 countries over the past decade.
Mayor Jack Dempsey said news of the high-calibre sporting event coming to Bundaberg was building excitement in the community.
“People are excited to know this spectacular show is coming to the Bundaberg Region,” Mayor Dempsey said.
“This event is one that has an absolutely massive following.
“This is a real win for Bundaberg and I look forward to seeing the skills on show at what's sure to be an action-packed performance.”
