Originally scheduled to take place in 2013, the Monster Jam monster truck festival is finally coming to the Philippines.
The announcement came via a Facebook post of Vivre Fort Entertainment, a local event production company. This means Vivre Fort officially took over the event's promotion from the original promoter, Hoopla Incorporated (which, ironically, couldn't deliver on all the hoopla they created).
According to Vivre Fort, Monster Jam will be held at the SM Mall of Asia Arena--the same venue it was originally set to be staged--on June 20 and 21. Ticket sales for the two-day event will officially start on January 28 via SM Tickets. We just wonder, however, why Monster Jam's official event calendar doesn’t have the Philippines listed yet.
Anyway, we're sure everyone’s excited to see an event that’s the first of its kind in the Philippines. We just hope that the complications that forced the cancellation of the planned shows in 2013 won’t happen again, like the supposed preference for imported dirt by Monster Jam organizer Feld Motor Sports.
