Nitro Circus New Zealand Tour Postponed To November 2022

Press Release – Nitro Circus Live

All Tickets Will Be Honoured; Additional Tickets On Sale Now for New Event Dates

Today, Thrill One Sports and Entertainment announced that the 2022 New Zealand Nitro Circus You Got This Tour, originally scheduled to begin in February, will be postponed to November 2022 as a result of the ongoing disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Moving the tour to November 2022 will allow New Zealand’s just-announced new COVID-19 mitigation policies to take effect and will provide additional time for the current government imposed international travel restrictions into New Zealand to be lifted so that Nitro Circus’ complete global athlete roster will be available and provide New Zealand fans with the best show possible.

Joe Carr, CEO of Thrill One Sports & Entertainment – Nitro Circus’ parent company – said: “For over a decade, Nitro Circus has built an extremely passionate and extensive New Zealand fan community through our commitment to putting on a top-notch show, each and every night. While it’s of course disappointing to have to reschedule, by postponing our tour to November 2022, it means we can ensure that we will have our best talent and athletes available and we will be able to deliver the world-class show that our loyal New Zealand fans have come to expect. We can’t wait to come back to New Zealand in November and give our fans the best show they’ve ever seen!”

The Nitro Circus 2022 New Zealand You Got This Tour will now begin Wednesday 9, November 2022 at Whangarei’s Semenoff Stadium. Six additional outdoor shows in all of the originally announced markets will follow before the tour wraps up on Saturday, 26 November in Auckland’s Mt Smart Stadium. A full itinerary is listed below. Tickets already purchased are valid for the rescheduled dates without the need for exchange so patrons should hold on to their tickets.

Tickets for the postponed events remain on sale. Tickets for the new dates can be purchased at
