For nearly two decades, Nitro Circus has been defined by the good, the bad, and the rad. This wild crew of action sports heroes, led by NBC “America’s Got Talent: Extreme” competitors Ryan “R-Willy” Williams and Aaron “Wheelz” Fotheringham, has stunned crowds across the globe with an incandescent mix of world’s first tricks, bone-crushing fails and comedic moments. Now these thrill-seeking daredevils are back with a rip-roaring new live show: Good, Bad & Rad presented by A SHOC Energy.
Produced by Nitro Circus, the tour is taking over outdoor stadiums across North America this summer, now including a Friday, September 2 Appleton show at Neuroscience Group Field at Fox Cities Stadium. Tickets are available for purchase at nitrocircus.com NOW.
Nitro Circus: Good, Bad & Rad presented by A SHOC Energy is built from the core, driven by unbelievable content and crazy new contraptions that fuel the sketchy, scary and risky dangers of big-air action sports entertainment.
This all-new show features Nitro Circus stars like the Contraption Kings: three-time X Games gold medalist Ryan Williams plus all-around stunt master Dusty Wygle, decorated BMX athlete Kurtis Downs, BMX pro Todd Meyn and cool under pressure rider Josh Roberts. They will ride alongside fellow “America’s Got Talent: Extreme” competitor Aaron “Wheelz” Fotheringham, whose refusal to let a wheelchair limit him has inspired fans from packed Nitro Circus shows to the Paralympic Games.
Joining the Contraption Kings and Fotheringham are freestyle motocross legend Adam Jones, Australian FMX stars Blake “Bilko” Williams and Jarryd McNeil, female FMX athlete Kassie Boone, plus skateboarding pro Beaver Fleming and more fan favorites. Good, Bad & Rad will also shine the spotlight on new talent who will soon be household names for the next generation.
Nitro Circus: Good, Bad & Rad captures the camaraderie of these fun-loving legends who risk their lives pushing the limits, and the excitement they share with the crowd when greatness is achieved. The show will also feature incredible new entertainment features like the ASHOC Fun Box, where athletes will attempt to jump up 30-feet onto a platform suspended in mid-air, then perform flips and spins before dropping down to land 30-feet below. There will also be pit bike jousting: for this, riders on compact dirtbikes will square off more mid-Evel Knievel style than medieval times. Then the Nitro Circus crew will feel the need for speed with exciting new contraptions such as a fighter jet, a flying pig, a tandem BMX bike - all launching off the infamous Nitro Circus 50-ft Giganta ramp - and more.
Williams says, “I’m so excited to hit the road with this insane new show! The production team have really outdone themselves this time – Good, Bad & Rad definitely brings the crazy like only Nitro Circus can. We have some sick surprises in store for our North America fans, and to get ready: I’ve been working hard at R Willy Land cooking up some huge new tricks.”
Fans will also have a deeper personal perspective at Good, Bad & Rad, getting under the helmet to know their favorite athletes better than ever before, especially with a new premier, on-field Club Nitro VIP experience that literally puts fans in the middle of the action. This new on-field private lounge features all-inclusive food and beverages, exclusive athlete meet and greets and more.
