After crisscrossing the globe this year on its biggest tour yet, the greatest action sports show on the planet—Travis Pastrana’s Nitro Circus Live—will return to North America for more high-adrenaline excitement in 2017. Idaho Falls now has the chance to see the death-defying stunts and mind-blowing tricks that have captivated sold out audiences worldwide when Nitro Circus Live visits Melaleuca Field on Friday, June 30. 

Tickets go on sale Thursday, Nov. 3 at 6 p.m. to coincide with the national television special, “Impractical Jokers Live: Nitro Circus Spectacular,” airing on truTV.

Nitro Circus Live’s 2017 North American tour will feature more than 30 world-class athletes. It’s an all-star international lineup, loaded with the best riders in freestyle motocross (FMX), BMX, scooter and inline, including multiple X Games medalists. They will perform the biggest tricks in action sports—plus many unbelievable world firsts never attempted before. Audiences will also witness the outrageous contraptions that are totally unique to Nitro Circus. Everything from trikes and tall bikes to a kayak and a whiskey barrel will fly off the famous 40-foot Giganta Ramp (safe landings, however, are not guaranteed).   

Since its 2010 debut, Nitro Circus Live has thrilled fans on five continents. The tour has sold out New York City’s iconic Madison Square Garden and played double sellouts at both London’s O2 Arena and the famous Tokyo Dome. More than 35,000 people poured into Johannesburg’s FNB Stadium for a massive 2014 show, while also that year 45,000 filled Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena, the second highest attendance of any touring act at that venue. Now Idaho Falls fans will get to experience the heart-pumping rush that is Nitro Circus Live.

Fans looking for the ultimate Nitro Circus experience will want to get their hands on the Nitro Club VIP package. Starting at just $79 each (plus applicable service fees), these exclusive passes include the best seats in the house, getting to see the final 20 minutes of rider rehearsal, and the opportunity to get up close and personal with the stars of Nitro Circus during an exclusive Q & A session. Nitro Club pass holders will also receive a souvenir lanyard and electronically signed Nitro Circus poster, as well as a chance to win cool Nitro Circus swag.

The 2017 North American tour will also have a huge economic impact on tour markets. Local businesses can anticipate getting a major boost in patronage when the show attracts thousands of people to their city.

“Businesses in Idaho Falls, including hotels, restaurants, bars and more, will benefit from having Nitro Circus Live in town,” Mike Porra, Nitro Circus CEO and creative director, explains. “We’ve seen the trend worldwide. Now we can’t wait to visit Idaho Falls for the first time and show fans what Nitro Circus Live is all about.”

To celebrate the tour launch, Travis Pastrana and the Nitro Circus Crew will team up with the outrageous Tenderloins (New York comedians Joe Gatto, James Murray, Brian Quinn and Sal Vulcano) for a special television event, “Impractical Jokers Live: Nitro Circus Spectacular,” airing live in the U.S. on truTV Thursday, Nov. 3 at 6 p.m. Mountain/8 p.m. Eastern.
