The shows in 2014 were unreal, the fans were incredible,” said Mike Porra, Nitro Circus Executive Chairman and Global Head of Creative. “Now to have an opportunity to come back with Travis riding and with an all new show, this tour is going to be epic.”
“I am so excited to finally have the chance to go to South Africa and ride for our fans there,” said Pastrana. “I was so disappointed that my broken leg sidelined me last time. I kept hearing how awesome the shows were and that the crowd energy was off the charts. It’s where some of our all-time greatest moments happened and I can’t wait be there this summer!”

In February 2014, Nitro Circus Live both made its South African debut and headlines around the world with three massive shows. After a huge opening night in Capetown, the late Erik Roner (world-renowned BASE jumper, champion snowsports athlete and global action sports star) made the most jaw-dropping entrance imaginable in Durban: backflipping from the top of Moses Mabhida Stadium to a thunderous ovation from the capacity crowd. Then in Johannesburg’s FNB Stadium, Nitro Circus Live played to more than 35,000 fans, its biggest single show to date.
