MAPLE LEAF MONSTER JAM TOUR ROARS INTO ROGERS CENTRE JANUARY 21 & 22nd!
Meet Northern Nightmare: Canada’s New 10,000-Pound Monster Truck!
TORONTO, ON – January 4/12 – Feld Motor Sports® has announced that the Maple Leaf Monster Jam Tour will take place January 21-22/12 at Rogers Centre in Toronto. Tickets are on sale now.
Attracting more than 4 million fans annually at the most prestigious arenas and stadiums throughout the world, Monster Jam® events showcase jaw-dropping freestyle and racing competition featuring the largest and most advanced automotive machines in the world. These custom-designed monster trucks average 12 feet tall by 12 feet wide, sit atop 66-inch-tall tires and weigh a minimum of 10,000 pounds. There’s a reason they are called “Monster.” Built for short, high-powered bursts of speed, monster trucks generate 1,500 to 2,000 horsepower and are capable of speeds of up to 100 miles per hour. Monster trucks can fly up to 125 to 130 feet (a distance greater than 14 cars side by side) and up to 35 feet in the air.
Fan-favourite trucks slated to appear at the arena will be led by Canada’s very own and the first dedicated Canuck monster truck Northern Nightmare driven by native Cam McQueen. McQueen and the brand new North Nightmare will compete against the likes of Grave Digger®, Monster Mutt® Dalmatian, Mohawk Warrior℠, Maximum Destruction®, Avenger, Wrecking Crew, Aftershock, Krazy Train and Crushstation. Monster Jam® is sanctioned by the United States Hot Rod Association®. Trucks are subject to change without notice.
Rogers Centre Monster Jam® shows are scheduled for Saturday, January 21 at 7pm and Sunday, January 22 at 2pm. Ticket prices start at $20 for adults and $15 for Pizza Pizza kids tickets for children 12 and under, and are available at the Rogers Centre Box Office, all Ticketmaster outlets, online at www.ticketmaster.ca, and by phone at (855) 985-5000. There are a limited number of TAP ($125) and Gold Circle ($50) seats available for both shows. Additional fees may apply.
The Party in the Pits will be held from 3pm to 5pm on Saturday, January 21 and 11am to noon on Sunday, January 22nd. The pre-show pit party gives fans (with a show ticket) the chance to see the monster trucks up close, meet drivers, take pictures and get autographs.
