Nuclear Cowboyz light up the Tacoma Dome

Geoff Aaron flies above the flames

While I’m not much of a risk taker myself, I have to admit there’s something cool about seeing someone else willingly choose to risk life and limb. Freestyle motocross is a great example of something you wouldn’t catch me doing, ever, but I find compelling to watch. Nuclear Cowboyz is a new theatrical style motocross show featuring some of the world’s top riders and it’s coming to the Tacoma Dome next week. Legends of freestyle motocross – guys like Adam Jones, Mike Mason, Nate Adams, Jeremy “Twitch” Stenberg, Ronnie Faisst, Todd Potter, Beau Bamburg, Jim McNeil, Dustin Miller, Matt Buyten, Brian Foster, Jimmie McGuire, Jimmy Fitzpatrick, Taka Higashino and Derek Garland – will synchronize complex stunts and go for broke in an attempt to break some world records that hopefully won’t see them breaking any bones.

Also on the menu: a special appearance by Derek Guetter presenting an extraordinary back-flipping quad, dancers, loud rock music, pyrotechnics and all kinds of spectacle.

You’ve got two chances to see this jaw-dropping extravaganza – March 19 and March 20. Both shows are at 7:30 pm at the Tacoma Dome.

Since this show has a big enough carbon footprint on its own, if you’re heading down from Seattle, why not offset it a bit by taking the bus? Sound Transit’s route 594 travels between downtown Seattle and the Tacoma Dome station every half hour until the last bus from Tacoma at 10:18 pm.

    Not sure if I could sit through a several hours of that, but looks entertaining, nonetheless.
