Monster Truck sensation, Monster Jam, is making its way to South Africa for the first time ever in 2019 and will be hosted at Cape Town Stadium on 27 April 2019.

The show will be brought to South African shores by American-based Feld Entertainment and leading local promoter, Showtime Management, in association with SuperSport and regional radio media partners East Coast Radio, Kfm 94.5 and JacarandaFM.

The stars of the show are the biggest performers on four wheels – the Monster Jam trucks. For decades, Monster Jam has been one of the biggest and most successful touring shows in the United States.

It is one of the most exciting forms of family entertainment, featuring four-meter tall, five-ton beasts.  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.

Both male and female world-class drivers compete in the Monster Jam truck racing and freestyle competitions in an effort to win the championship. Drivers are treated equally and will be tested for their set of skills during the event.

Combining high-octane, spontaneous entertainment with the ultimate off-road motorsport competition, the jaw-dropping displays will leave families on the edge of their seat

With the best truck line-up ever assembled for an international performance, the show will feature six of the world’s most famous Monster Jam trucks, including Monster Jam World Finals, champions Grave Digger and Max D, providing an unforgettable experience.

Attendees will be given front row seats to watch Monster trucks defy gravity.

The larger than life spectacular takes place on specially-designed tracks that optimise mobility so that the giant trucks can go head to head in wheelies, doughnuts, racing and freestyle competitions pushing them to their limits.

Standing four metres tall and four metres wide, the custom designed Monster Jam trucks weigh up to 4 500kg and are powered by super-charged engines delivering more than 1 500 horsepower.

With tyres, 1.7metre tall, a Monster Jam truck is capable of reaching speeds of up to 110kms per hour and can jump as far as 43 metres in length.

The show will last two and a half hours, including an interval period.



Tickets can be purchased exclusively from Computicket only. Prices for tickets will vary for Cape Town depending on where you are seated, ranging from R150 – R600 per person.

There are options available for discounted family packages to the event.
