Never before has Monster Jam been in any UK Stadium but Cardiff’s multi-functional venue has successfully attracted this mammoth show after months of negotiations with event promoters Live Nation.

To buy tickets: Tel: 08705 582 582 or log on to or head down to Cardiff’s CIA box office.

Monster trucks are celebrating their 25th year in the world of motor sports since the famous ‘Bigfoot’ – a modified Ford F-250 atop five feet tall wheels – roared into America’s Silverdome. The crowd was awed by the sheer power of this once ordinary truck with its ability to demolish two cars with one massive blow and  Stadium bosses are expecting a UK-wide crowd of around 40,000 to be just as awe struck.

Roger Lewis, WRU Group Chief Executive, said, “This is a very exciting announcement for us to make today, for such a dramatic, unique event to come across from America and put on a spectacular show here at the Millennium Stadium, just goes to show how well known the venue and its versatility is across the globe.

“These trucks are gargantuan in size and make a real impact when you see them up close, having 12 roaring around inside the bowl of the Stadium will be something pretty special.

“It will be a family occasion and we are hoping the event will be hugely popular and for those who have experienced motor sports such as Speedway and Rally in the Millennium Stadium will know what an incredible atmosphere there will be with the roof closed and the thunderous engines roaring.”

As soon as the Rugby World Cup ends the pitch is removed and the vast hard standing area will make way firstly for the Police concert and will then be covered in 3,200 cubic metres of dirt to construct the Monster trucks track.

Tickets go on sale tomorrow (Friday June1st) and Venue Sales Manager Alex Luff is excited about the anticipated attendance and showcasing the stadium in all its glory, “Securing the Monster Jam event really cements the Stadium’s growing reputation as the home for world class motor sport. The event is a first in the UK and we are all hopeful that it will become a long term fixture in the Millennium Stadium’s busy events calendar.”

Fans are also being offered the chance to get up close to these colossal creatures and meet the monster truck drivers in the pre-event Monster Jam Party in the Pits. It’s a unique opportunity to gain access to the actual track and walk the ramps these massive trucks will jump and obstacles they’ll destroy! Passes are available for all ticket holders and cost just £5!
