PHOENIX — The sound of monster truck engines will once again reverberate through State Farm Stadium when Monster Jam returns to Glendale on Oct. 2.
The event expects to welcome guests at full capacity to see the mix of high-flying stunts and four-wheel actions after Monster Jam was held earlier this year at the venue with reduced capacity due to the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a press release.
Presale tickets are now available and can be purchased online with tickets going on sale to the general public on Aug. 24.
Skilled monster truck drivers during the event will perform gravity-defying feats like backflips and vertical two-wheel tricks in 12,000-pound Monster Jam trucks while going head-to-head for points in freestyle, skills challenges and racing competitions with speeds of the trucks reaching up to 70 mph, according to the release.
Multiple fan favorites are expected to be featured in the event, including the brother rivalry between five-time Monster Jam World Finals champion Adam Anderson competing in Grave Digger and 2021 Stadium Series Champion Ryan Anderson in Son-uva Digger, according to the release.
Also scheduled to show up are 12-time Monster Jam World Finals champion Tom Meents in Max-D, Guinness World Record holder Bryce Kenny in Great Clips Mohawk Warrior, 2019 Monster Jam World Finals High Jump champion Cynthia Gauthier in Monster Mutt Dalmatian, 2019 Rising Star driver Camden Murphy in Bakugan Dragonoid and Armando Castro in El Toro Loco.
Two-time Monster Jam World Finals champion and Arizona native Todd LeDuc is also on the list to be at the event behind the wheel of Monster Energy.
The show gets underway at 7 p.m., with a pit party scheduled to take place from 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. where people that buy the add-on can see the massive trucks up close and participate in a variety of activities.
Face mask guidelines apply for the pit party, while event officials are also monitoring changes to government mandates, public health guidelines and industry standards to adjust protocols based on requirements.
