a small DVD series filmed in Pastrana's Maryland
backyard, Nitro Circus grew into a successful MTV show with more than 46
viewers and broadcast in 60 countries worldwide. The next step was Nitro Circus
Live, which has captured the imagination of fans worldwide with a string of
sell-out shows and record-breaking crowds across Europe, Australia and New Zealand. "I'm so pumped we can
finally bring this home for fans to enjoy," says Pastrana.
Circus Live's fully choreographed action sports spectacular combines big stunts
and outrageous feats on an array of contraptions launched off Nitro Circus
Live's multi-million dollar set and famous 50-ft. Nitro Gigant-A-Ramp. "Fans
can expect to see everything from kids' trikes, snow skis, tandem bikes and
razor scooters to shopping carts, a Barbie car and even a cooler launched with
skill off the Gigant-A-Ramp," says Pastrana. "The live show also features
spectacular choreographed freestyle motocross riding, including the outrageous
`Nitro Bomb' with 20 riders back-flipping in the air at the same time."

Circus Live sold out the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. We saw standing ovations there and
at every stop on last year's European tour; we broke ticket sale records in Australia and were the highest selling tour in New Zealand in
2011, beating AC/DC and U2," said Managing Director of Nitro Circus Live,
Michael Porra. "We can't wait to bring our crazy antics to cities across North America."
