Last month when we went to watch the Xfactor tour in Manchester we saw loads of posters for the Monster Jam Tour and it looked ace, something that could be enjoyed by the whole family. We have just confirmed our tickets this week and can not wait to go and watch it in Manchester next month. My boys love playing with cars, especially the Micro Motorz, so this show is perfect for them.
For anyone that hasn’t heard of Monster Jam before it is a live show involving some of the most incredible monster trucks you have ever seen and this will be the first time they have been in Manchester since 2010, so tickets are bound to sell out fast, especially as they are only staying for two days – Saturday 4th May and Sunday 5th May.
“The world-famous tucks will deliver entertainment that promises to keep you on the edge of your seats and filled with adrenaline charged excitement. This Monster Jam arena event will deliver more spontaneous live motor sports action than ever before!”
We have been told that the performance will be so much more than just some big trucks driving around the arena and that we should prepare to be astonished as these huge trucks perform numerous tricks and even hurtle through the air! I can not wait to see this show and more importantly I can not wait to see the looks on our boy’s faces when they watch it too.
If you aren’t already a Monster Truck super fan then check out these amazing Monster Jam facts:
1.Monster Jam trucks stand 12-feet tall and 10-feet wide, sitting atop 66-inch-tall tires and weighing a minimum of 12,000 pounds.
2. 1,500 to 2,000 horsepower is generated by these larger than life trucks.
3. One Monster Jam tyre weighs 800 pounds – that’s the weight of a horse!
We have also been told that there will be a ‘Pit Party’ where fans can meet their favourite drivers, get up close to the Monster Jam trucks and participate in activities including autograph signings and much more. It sounds like it is going to be a show and an experience not to miss.
I hope we get to see some of you at Manchester but if you are not local then fear not as Monster Jam are also visiting Principality Stadium, Cardiff on the 18th May 2019 and Coventry Ricoh Arena on the 8th June 2019.
Tickets are on sale now so be sure to grab yours before they sell out.
