First Tour of Australasia In Three Years

Tickets On Sale Friday 12 November

(Monday 1 November, 2021) Nitro Circus will return to New Zealand and Australia for the first time in three years for a 15-date run of outdoor stadiums kicking off in February 2022. The tour will also launch an all-new show theme that the thrill-loving crew will then take worldwide.

2022 is primed to be one of the biggest years in Nitro Circus’ 12-year touring history, with its global show count set to increase more than 33% from 2019. The high-adrenaline excitement kicks off in New Zealand on Friday 4 Febuary, 2022 then hits Australia on Friday 4 March, 2022.

The face of Nitro Circus’ 2022 world tour will be Sunshine Coast’s Ryan Williams, one of action sports’ biggest stars. The BMX and scooter champion, with seven titles to date from both Nitro World Games and X Games, is thrilled to ride in New Zealand and Australia once again.

Williams said, “It’s crazy that after touring New Zealand and Australia every year since 2010, it will have been three years since we have gotten to do a show here. Now we are ready to send it for our Kiwi and Aussie fans! We’ve used that time at home to work up a bunch of insane new tricks and trust me, you do not want to miss these shows!”

Since launching its touring business in Australia and New Zealand over a decade ago, Nitro Circus has gone on to perform on five continents and established itself as a major global live event property. To date, Nitro Circus has performed more than 360 shows in over 30 countries worldwide in stadiums, arenas and festivals with an exciting blend of action sports excitement, jaw-dropping stunts and outrageous fun.

Joe Carr, CEO of Thrill One Sports & Entertainment – Nitro Circus’ parent company – said: “After such a great response in North America this year we are thrilled to build on that momentum and bring Nitro Circus back to Australia and New Zealand. These are two of Nitro’s most avid fan bases and also among the most passionate and sophisticated audiences in action sports. Now, with the excitement of live entertainment returning to venues worldwide, we can’t wait for Australia and New Zealand to experience the high adrenaline fun of Nitro Circus once again.”
