Backed by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s General Authority for Entertainment (GAE), the Feld Entertainment Inc. and Live Entertainment have brought the popular live motorsport, Monster Jam, to the Kingdom at the King Fahd International Stadium today, 17th of March 2017.
This two-day show is one of the biggest and most celebrated touring shows in the USA and the world for over a decade. It features legendary drivers in four-meter tall, five-ton Monster Jam truck, which are built for short, high-powered bursts of speed. These super vehicles generate 1,500 to 2,000 horsepower and are capable of speeds of up to 100 miles per hour. They can also fly across 130 feet, a distance greater than 14 cars side by side, and up to 35 feet in the air.

The Monster Jam motorsport event is one of the biggest and most celebrated touring shows in the USA and the world. It's worth reiterating that it made history earlier tonight because it kicked off the first of its two-day series that features storied drivers in four-meter tall, five-ton Monster Jam trucks; quad bikers; and motorcross riders. The experience is summed up to a one hell of a ride. So if you're up to an adrenaline-pumping show, you can (still) purchase passes for its second day right at the stadium's ticket booths. #storiesofthewanderingfeet #storiesofthewanderingfeetandmind #instalike #instagood #monsterjam2017 #monsterjam #motorsport #riyadh #riyadhguide #travel #travelnotebook #supercross #ksa
Monster Jam is only one of the upcoming events that GAE is working on to bring to the Kingdom. The World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) that returned to KSA in November last year was another successful event made possible by GAE.

The supercross in the clip showcasing the death-defying stunts swaggered up in the air formed one of Monster Jam motorsport event's highlights that took place at the King Fahad International Stadium earlier tonight. I'm fortunate to have witnessed and become part of this historical event in Saudi Arabia's entertainment and tourism industry. Big THANKS to our big boss for the ticket! #storiesofthewanderingfeet #storiesofthewanderingfeetandmind #monsterjam2017 #monsterjam #riyadh #riyadhguide #instalike #instagood #travel #travelersnotebook #motorsport #motorcross #supercross #ksa
The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has, once again, proven its continuous efforts on introducing the general public to a new form of entertainment all for strengthening the country’s economy and global competitiveness and in harmony to its Saudi Vision 2030 (“Let the show begin: Word-class entertainment comes to Saudi Arabia“).
The stereotypical picture of the cultural entertainment in the Kingdom is indeed changing into a new face—one that is modern and open-minded.
