The Nitro Circus is just like any other circus you’ve been to, with a few minor differences. Like, instead of three rings inside a giant tent, the Nitro Circus features a dozen steep ramps inside a packed stadium. And, instead of four or five leotarded carnies doing a few flips on the trapeze, the Nitro Circus features more than 40 of the world’s greatest extreme sports athletes attacking those ramps on BMX bikes, skateboards, dirtbikes, razor scooters, big wheels -- we think we even saw a guy on a wheelchair -- and pulling off some of the craziest stunts you’ll ever see a human perform. Also, there’s quite a bit of pyrotechnics. Totally normal circus stuff, right?
The Nitro Circus lands at 7:30 p.m. Friday, January 24, at Glendale’s Jobing.com Arena, 9400 West Maryland Avenue. Tickets start at $48. Call 877-686-5366 or visit www.nitrocircuslive.com for more.
