Nitro to roll into town

Augusta Margaret River Times - - Entertainment - Mitchell Wood­cock

One of the world’s big­gest ac­tion sports en­ter­tain­ment shows is com­ing to Bun­bury next year when the world-renowned Nitro Cir­cus Live de­buts its lat­est tour in Aus­tralia.

Freestyle mo­tocross leg­end and Nitro Cir­cus founder Travis Pas­trana is bring­ing an all-star lineup to the South West on Satur­day, April 21 for a show at Hands Oval for The Next Level Tour in their only re­gional WA show.

One of the most ex­cited riders is Don­ny­brook’s res­i­dent dare­devil Josh Shee­han, who will be just one of the many stars en­ter­tain­ing the crowd.

“This is awe­some,” he said on the news of the visit. “It’s as close to home as I will ever get. “I spend so much of my time away from home and in other coun­tries so to be able to bring all of that to my back­yard is just great.”

Bun­bury mayor Gary Bren­nan said ma­jor at­trac­tions such as Nitro Cir­cus con­tin­ued to grow the city’s rep­u­ta­tion as a des­ti­na­tion of choice for event or­gan­is­ers. “Nitro Cir­cus is one of a host of high­pro­file events that will pro­vide sig­nif­i­cant so­cial and eco­nomic ben­e­fits for Bun­bury and the wider re­gion,” he said.

Shee­han said he could not wait to show his home­town fans what the Nitro Cir­cus had to of­fer.

“You’ll see the big­gest and best tricks on mo­tor­bikes, BMX, moun­tain bikes, scoot­ers and plenty of stupid con­trap­tions along with a few ex­tra stunts per­formed by some of the best ath­letes in the world in their sport,” he said.
