Vert Ramp returns to Big Day Out

BIG Day Out has announced the return of the Vert Ramp Skate Show to the national tour for 2012.

Twenty years ago, skateboarders rolled in on a huge custom built vert ramp to the sounds of skate rock band "Village Idiots" (on what was to become known as the "Skate Stage"), marking the opening of the first ever Big Day Out. The legendary Big Day Out skate show had begun and 10 years of amazing skaters, ramps and truly amazing skateboarding displays were to follow.

It's been 10 years since Big Day Out has been able to do the skate tour as part of its regular shows and to celebrate 20 years of BDO, the skate show is back for 2012.

Kicking off in New Zealand and continuing across Australia in January and February 2012, Big Day Out is welcoming some of the world's very best vert skaters on The Big Skate Tour.

The skate legend himself, Tony Hawk is back for his 3rd Big Day Out tour after 14 years away.

Hawk is on the ramp with Kevin Staab, Sandro Diaz, Neal Hendrix and Jesse Fritsch in a unique skate show spectacular late in the afternoon at every Big Day Out in New Zealand and Australia.

Tickets for the Big Day Out can be purchased through Ticketmaster.
