The Spectacular Monster Jam® Returns to Australia Brisbane to kick off Australian tour on October 7

June 6, 2017 Whats On No Comments Email Email

THE spectacular, action-packed moto-tainment extravaganza Monster Jam® returns to Australia this October; with Brisbane the first to host all the revved up action on Saturday October 7!

There’s more though!! Thrill-seeker and Queensland dynamo Rhianna Buchanan will be crowned Australia’s first ever Monster Jam® driver, after being invited to join the exclusive driver lineup following months of training and testing! (amazing photos and imagery available on request!)

U.S. Monster Jam greats Adam Anderson, driving the famous Grave Digger® and two-time Monster Jam World Finals® Champion Todd LeDuc in crowd favourite Monster Energy will be joined by an all-star lineup for the 2017 tour, including new truck additions MegalodonTM and EarthShakerTM (see full truck and driver lineup over page). The show will feature super-charged Monster Jam driver competitions – including Monster Jam Racing and the coveted Freestyle competitions.

For the very first time, Australia will witness the ultimate showdown where motorsport royalty go head-to-head in a unique Race Of Champions “ROC Factor” competition on the Monster Jam dirt track to determine who really is the fastest of them all. Drivers yet to be announced.

Brisbane will launch the Australian Monster Jam 2017 tour at a new family-friendly show time – 6pm on Saturday October 7; with the famousParty in the Pits® running from 1pm where fans can get up close with their favourite Monster Jam trucks, before meeting the superstar drivers, taking pictures, getting autographs & more!

Back to the history-making Queenslander, Rhianna Buchanan – renowned for her need for speed and fearless attitude, Rhianna will take on the U.S. Monster Jam legends over four shows across the East Coast in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. Rhianna’s Monster Jam truck is yet to be announced, but fans should rest assured that it will be the perfect match for Rhianna’s show-stopping girl power moves. STAY TUNED (because the Monster Jam trucks certainly are!).

Standing nearly four metres tall and four metres wide, Monster Jam trucks are custom-designed machines that weigh around 5,500kgs. Built for short, high powered bursts of speed, the powerful Monster Jam beasts perform breathtaking stunts and can accelerate from 0-100kph in under 3 seconds.  They literally fly – covering up to 50m in a single leap (a distance greater than 14 cars side by side) and up to 12m skywards.

Monster Jam events are affordably priced for the whole family with Kids Show tickets starting from just $24* With stadiums selling out across the globe, Monster Jam fans are encouraged to purchase their tickets early to avoid missing out.
