FOR the first and last time 10,000 people are set to descend on Wade Park to experience the death defying antics of the Nitro Circus.
Organisers expect the show on April 13 to be a sellout and promise to make it worth while.
Tour promoter Mike Porra said previous studies conducted by the group suggest the tour could mean a cash injection of between $500,000 and $1 million into the city’s economy.
“For a city like Orange we expect people to travel from up to 1000 kilometres away,” he said.
“It’s almost certainly the last regional tour we’ll do and certainly the last time we’ll be in Orange.”
Ten trucks up to 40 feet long will cruise into town for the show. That’s more trucks than the Rolling Stones have on tour .
On board will be the entire international cast of Nitro Circus which includes 40 BMX and motocross stunt bike riders.
Mr Porra said the highlight of the show for him was called the nitro bomb
“Which is 20 riders, 10 freestyle motocross riders and 10 BMX riders all coming off the same ramp at the same time,” he said.
“Basically 20 people upside- down all at the same time.”
The circus will never again come to Orange because they will shortly embark on an international tour of Europe and Mexico. Nitro Circus will then take up a permanent booking in Las Vegas.
Tickets for the event go on sale on October 14 and are available at nitrocircuslive.com
