Southwest University Park officials announced Monday that Nitro Circus is gearing up to make its highly-anticipated return to El Paso this Fall.
Nitro Circus’ You Got This tour hits El Paso for a Saturday, October 23rd show at Southwest University Park.
Officials say that all tickets from Nitro Circus’ original 2020 El Paso show will be honored on the new October 23rd date. Additional tickets are also on sale now and are available at SouthwestUniversityPark.com, NitroCircus.com, or by clicking here.
“After the tremendous disappointment of having to postpone our North American tour for the past year, we are so excited to get back out on the road and deliver action-packed fun to live audiences again,” says Joe Carr, CEO of Thrill One Sports and Entertainment, parent company of Nitro Circus.
“Every live show is an immediate adrenaline rush that must be experienced in person. The Nitro Circus athletes have missed the roar of a live crowd and can’t wait to reconnect with our amazing El Paso fans this fall.”
Nitro Circus: You Got This will feature a packed roster of top international action sports athletes highlighted by Australia’s Ryan Williams, a dual threat on both BMX and scooter. Williams is already a four-time Nitro World Games winner as well as a three-time X Games gold medalist. Nitro ringleader Travis Pastrana considers him, “Hands down, the best action sports athlete alive today.”
Nitro Circus’ roster of elite athletes, including champion BMX and scooter rider Ryan Williams as well as skilled professionals in freestyle motocross (FMX), skate and more, brave the world’s largest jumps.
Decorated U.S. BMX rider Kurtis Downs will push Williams to raise his game every night. Last month Downs stunned America competing in TBS’ “Go-Big Show,” ultimately battling his way to the finals during the national broadcast.
Mountain bike pro, Nitro Circus contraptions king and professional fun-haver Dusty Wygle will also brave the Giganta ramp, dropping in with vehicles that have no business going airborne.
Aussie Jarryd McNeil, the first moto rider to win four consecutive X Games golds in a single discipline (just a small portion of his 15-medal trophy case) will lead Nitro’s FMX team.
The moto lineup also includes fellow countryman Blake “Bilko” Williams, a multiple X Games medalist in his own right, American FMX legend Adam Jones, Javier Villegas from Chile – an X Games medalist who has also podiumed at Nitro World Games – and more.
Officials say fans looking to get an insider’s look at the You Got This tour can enjoy Mic’d Up Live, the Nitro Circus VIP experience.
“Mic’d Up Live offers fans under the helmet access to the biggest show in action sports. Hear from some of Nitro’s athletes as they talk to the VIP crowd prior from the top of the ramps and get their first-hand play-by-play as they fly through the air. Watch as they prepare for the show,” officials added. “Gain early entry, be the first to your section and get crowd-free access inside the venue before general doors open. “
The 45-foot Giganta ramp will launch athletes into the sky at 40 miles per hour while moto riders will send it 65-feet high.
“Nitro’s daredevils will also attempt the craziest stunts imaginable on new contraptions you never imagine could fly! With no roof there are no limits,” officials added. “These real-life action heroes are sure to inspire fans of all ages as they push the envelope at every show with incredible new tricks never seen before.”
Co-founded in 2003 by iconic superstar Travis Pastrana, Nitro Circus has since grown into a multiplatform phenomenon creating spectacular live events, progressive competitions, hit television programming and innovative digital offerings.
