AURORA, Illinois, Feb. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Feld Motor Sports® announced today its return to Stockholm, Sweden for the first time in three years, playing a stadium-size venue. The Friends Arena will host the world class event on November 9. Tickets for Monster Jam go on sale February 22. Monster Jam has enjoyed tremendous success in Sweden in the past, selling out Goteborg's Ullevi Stadium in 2012 in addition to many successful performances in Stockholm dating back to 2003.
"We look forward to Monster Jam making its debut in the stadium," says Thomas Perslund, CEO of Friends Arena. "Our venue offers great possibilities not only for its size but also for the perfect sightlines and the closed roof, which will maximize the experience for the audience. We are thrilled to present this spectacular family event."
Monster Jam has been expanding worldwide and the brand continues to visit new markets, recently announcing its premiere date in Abu Dhabi, capital of United Arab Emirates. The Stockholm event promises a full-on, smash-up, high-power experience featuring legendary Grave Digger®, Monster Mutt® Rottweiler, El Toro Loco®, Superman, Spider-Man, Iron Man, and more.
"Monster Jam is an event for the whole family and we are pleased to be returning to Stockholm and playing the new national stadium of Sweden. Feld Motor Sports prides itself on its production value, and the Friends Arena is a venue that - due to its size and capacity - can certainly give audiences the full super-dynamic experience of what Monster Jam is all about," said Feld Motor Sports' International Vice President Magnus Danielsson.
Monster Jam is one of the most exciting forms of family entertainment, featuring four-meters-tall, and five-ton Monster Jam trucks. The stars of the show are the biggest performers on four wheels: the Monster Jam trucks. These amazing machines bring fans to their feet while racing and ripping up a custom-designed track full of obstacles to soar over - or smash through. Monster Jam entertains more than 4 million fans a year at 135 different locations and more than 350 performances.
More 2013 International Monster Jam dates will be announced shortly.
