After an epic event in Paris last Autumn, skate ledgend Tony Hawk and the Birdhouse team come back to Europe this Summer for a whole tour of their show! The lucky cities to be graced with this event are Berlin (GER), Rome/Ostia (ITA), Barcelona (SPA) and Brighton (UK).
Together with some of the best ramp riders on earth, Tony Hawk will be performing a spectacular choreographed show. Athletes include Sandro Dias, X-Games gold medalist and multiple world champion and vert stars Kevin Staab, Jessie Fritsch and Jean Postec.
In Berlin, N*E*R*D will be making a rare appearance. The band founded by producers par excellence, Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo, will be performing live to kick off the Tony Hawk & Friends European Skateboarding Tour in style. In Rome/Ostia, there will be a selection of the best DJs around while Barcelona will be playing host to punk rock icons Tony Sly (No Use For a Name) and Joey Cape (Lagwagon), who’ll be supporting Tony and Friends… And last, but not least, in Brighton, Brit band Maxïmo Park, with their distinctive post-punk style, will have the honour of closing the European Tour of the greatest skater of all time.
