It will be constructed and disassembled all within 48 hours.

"We couldn't have hoped for a better way to kick off the tour; the athletes killed it and the crowd was absolutely packed," Nitro Circus Live promoter Mike Porra said.

"We've got a couple of shows before we reach Toowoomba and I'm sure the show is going to be even bigger and better by the time we arrive."
