    Nitro Circus You Got This Stadium Tour

    Date: March 23, 2019

    Time: 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm

    The all-new You Got This Stadium tour will showcase Nitro Circus’ fearless riders braving the biggest ramps ever seen in both FMX and BMX next year, and once again New Zealand is set to reap the rewards of this boundary-breaking insanity. Not resting on their laurels, the Nitro Circus crew has created not one, but two all new ramps which will now make their way to New Zealand this summer. As the tour organisers were unsure how the new ramps would travel, New Zealand was due to see the proven Next Level tour setup to New Zealand – a show that has been touring Europe, Australia and North American cities in 2018. But after unveiling the re-imagined 55 foot Giganta ramp in North America in September, complete with a takeoff kicker more than three metres taller than anything Nitro Circus has toured before, the results were too good to pass up. “Our new Next Level Giganta ramp has been such an unprecedented success on our just completed North American tour – with audiences being blown away by the mind boggling new tricks the guys have been able to throw down – that we made the decision to bring this ramp and show to New Zealand,” Nitro Circus President Andy Edwards explained. “So in one insane show, Kiwi fans will now get to witness not one but two Next Level set ups: in FMX, and BMX/skate. We all cannot wait to bring this show to New Zealand.” Taupo’s Jed Mildon, the world’s first triple and quad backflipping BMXer, and arguably the biggest name in New Zealand action sports, campaigned to bring the double-ramp show to his home crowd, adamant that New Zealand sees the very best version of the Nitro Circus show. “I just knew from the moment I first hit this ramp six weeks ago in Montreal, that New Zealand had to have this ramp,” Mildon said. “The FMX boys have done such a great job progressing their sport over the past 12 months, it’s now our time to catch up on the Giganta side. With this brand new ramp technology, I cannot wait to throw down in front of my people, in what will be the best shows New Zealand has ever seen. It’s going to be epic.” “I may be biased, but I’m not the only one on tour that says it – New Zealand fans are the most wild and passionate fans anywhere in the world. So it’s only right that they get the very best version of our show and I am honoured to have played a small role in making this happen,” he adds. Combined, these new ramps – one a radically expanded version of Nitro’s infamous Giganta Ramp, the other the massive FMX Next Level ramp — will ensure that the March 2019 tour will be the biggest New Zealand shows in Nitro Circus history, as the best athletes in FMX, BMX and Skate push themselves to their absolute limits on the biggest ramps Read more [...]

    Japanese Origami and Paper Craft

    Date: March 25, 2019

    Time: 11:45 am to 12:45 pm

    Fold, unfold, fold again, unfold again. Paper folding is the basic skill of all Japanese paper craft and while simple to learn is used to create stunning, often complex results. Even today children in Japan are encouraged to practise origami to develop fine motor skills and focus. So, why can’t we?! Studies have shown that these finger exercises stimulate the brain and may actually help our minds stay fit and sharp. In this course you will learn how to make cranes, roses, jumping frogs and other delightful creations, including boxes. As much as possible we will use recycled materials and Kazuko will open your eyes to a whole world of folding household items! Please follow and like us:

The Monkees’ Michael Nesmith and Micky Dolenz will hit New Zealand this coming June playing in the main centres and delighting fans with back-to-back hits. David Roy Williams Presents: The Mike and Micky Show Tickets on sale Friday, December 14 at 11.00am from www.davidroywilliams.com As well as all of those marvellous Micky hit singles, this will be the first time Mike has appeared in New Zealand since 1977, so be assured the shows will highlight many of Nesmith’s compositions, including some that have never been performed live. ‘Last Train to Clarksville’, ‘Listen To The Band’, ‘Mary Mary’, ‘Different Drum’, ‘(I’m Not Your) Steppin’ Stone’, ‘The Girl I Knew Somewhere’, ‘I’m A Believer’, ‘Good Clean Fun’, ‘D.W. Washburn’, ‘Circle Sky’, ‘Randy Scouse Git’, ‘Papa Gene’s Blues’, ‘Take a Giant Step’, What Am I Doing Hangin’ Round’… and that’s less than half of what you’ll get to sing along to on the night. VIP packages are available. VIP Packages include access to soundcheck featuring deep cuts not performed during the concert, a signed A3 poster, priority entry to the show and a commemorative VIP laminate. A very limited number of Platinum VIP tickets are available also giving fans the opportunity to meet Mike and Mickey and get a photo on their own phone. “I love being on stage with Micky,” says Nesmith. “We’ve been collaborating for over 50 years, so it’s hard to believe it’s never been just the two of us. I’m excited to dust off some tunes that I haven’t played for a long time too. These are going to be some fun shows.” “Right from the get-go, I admired Mike’s songs. When we used to get together around the campfire to sing in the early days, we were always doing his songs,” says Dolenz. “We always had such a great a vocal blend; he was the one who encouraged me to write songs of my own. I’ve always been a big fan and now we finally get to do the Mike & Micky show that we riffed on the back when we were shooting The Monkees.” The Monkees Present: The Mike & Micky Show is a unique concert experience. Times may change but infectious pop hits and wonderfully charismatic characters stay in our hearts and memories forever. Please follow and like us:
