The Nitro Circus Next Level Tour brings extreme sport thrills to the beach

Nitro Circus is an action sports entertainment company that delivers the best and biggest mind-blowing cross platform entertainment for daredevils, all in the spirit of fun, friendship and camaraderie. The group started from humble beginnings, with Jeremy Rawle, Gregg Godfrey and Travis Pastrana producing DVDs from a garage in Utah. In 2009 the group partnered with MTV to create a hit TV series.

The show was transformed in 2010 by action sports veteran Mike Porra, creating the global phenomenon of Nitro Circus Live. Since the inaugural tour in Australia, the show has traveled the globe and cultivated diehard fans. The tours have now crossed five continents, selling out shows along the way. On June 19 the Next Level Tour will make a stop at the Myrtle Beach Pelicans Ballpark.

So what can you except to see when the Nitro Circus rolls into town? The high-octane show features the best athletes in extreme sports taking on the biggest ramps in the world, like the FMX Next Level takeoff ramp, towering 15 feet above the show floor and launching riders skyward more than 60 feet. You can also expect to see a 450-pound snowmobile go airborne. The full-moto show includes death-defying tricks and insane stunts, as well as the first ever in-show competition.

Also new for 2018, you can get up close and personal with the Nitro crew with the Nitro VIP Club package, which includes premiere seats and a pre-show track walk. For a thrilling good time, check out the Nitro Circus this June!
