Monster Jam breaks Box Office records
22nd October 2007, 10:38 am By Principality Stadium
Monster Jam ticket sales have crashed through all other box office records for this weekend’s showpiece, with over 40,000 tickets sold already, stadium bosses are expecting a sell out crowd for this enormous family show.
The atmospheric bowl is in the process of being transformed into a monster trucks track with over 3500 tonnes of dirt laid out across the concrete surface, ready for some side-by-side racing and freestyle competitions where the drivers can really showcase their skills controlling these mammoth machines.

The Monster Jam show is one of the biggest family entertainments events in the US and Saturday’s event in Cardiff looks set to follow suit. Venue Sales Manager Alex Luff brought the event to the Millennium Stadium after visiting the show in the United States last year.
“Monster Jam at Millennium Stadium has taken off more than we ever could’ve expected,” said Luff. “We’ve broken all UK box office records and are looking at a complete sell-out on Saturday night with more than 40,000 spectators filling the Stadium bowl. This is the first time we have had Monster Jam at the Stadium and we’re looking at how the public would take to this type of motorsport event; the results so far are staggering. The Millennium Stadium is fast becoming the UK motorsport venue as we’re hosting more and more near capacity crowds at events such as Speedway and Rally; and Monster Jam looks like being right up there with those well established events.”
Monster Jam promoters are just as delighted with the anticipated crowd attendance, Magnus Danielson Monster Jam Senior Director said: “We’re thrilled to be here in the fantastic Millennium Stadium, this is the largest facility we have visited on the whole of the European Tour and we’re expecting a sell out event on Saturday. Not only have we broken the UK Box Office record but along with our partners at Millennium Stadium, we have been able to set another record for the single largest viewing audience for a Monster Jam event in the history of the European Tour.”
