Have you ever seen those wild, big-wheeled trucks tumbling around and doing somersaults on TV? It's called Monster Jam and you will have the chance to watch it live in the country this year, thanks to Cirque du Soleil promoter Hoopla, which is bringing the high-revving spectacle to the Philippines on August 30, 31 and September 1. A total of eight monster trucks are expected to do their stunts at SM Mall of Asia Arena.
Monster Jam is a motorsport event mostly held in the US and recognized by the United States Hot Rod Association.
The news was revealed to TopGear.com.ph by EON, the PR company handling the event. The firm's account manager in charge of the project recently traveled to Las Vegas to personally experience the excitement of seeing monster trucks launching themselves in the air.
We checked Monster Jam's official event calendar, but the Philippine leg isn't listed yet. The calendar indicates, however, that the show will stage a one-day performance in Abu Dhabi on May 10. Thankfully, we don't have to fly to the Middle East to watch the show.
Don't forget to mark your calendars.
