ICYMI: Get excited, Tony Hawk is coming to Australia

Bringing stories, advice, and hopefully a 900 or two

The undisputed biggest name in skateboarding history, Tony Hawk, will be venturing Down Under later this year.

A skateboarding icon, the most famous man the sport has ever seen will deliver ‘An Evening with Tony Hawk’ on Monday 13 April.

The first event of its kind Hawk has delivered on our shores, fans will be treated to an intimate evening with the legend as he shares stories of his career, graces us with his unparalleled skateboarding knowledge, and even answers your questions.

The live audience Q&A will be hosted by Aussie television presenter and former Channel [V] host Danny Clayton, and as a bonus treat the night includes a special performance from Birdman: Or the Unexpected Virtue of a Tony Hawk Pro Skater Cover Band.

Hawk will be chatting all things skateboarding: including his signature ‘900’ and just how he made it happen – the first skateboarder to pull off the ridiculous feat of two-and-a-half mid-air revolutions. Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater, the viral video game that still continues to provide us with addictive hours of fun is on the menu, as is anything you’ve wanted to know about his legendary career, spanning professional skateboarding, gaming, philanthropy, cinema and so much more.

The highlights, lowlights, and just how he turned himself into a household name –  arguably the first skateboarder to do so – will all be revealed.

Tony Hawk will take over Forum Melbourne on Monday 13 April. Make sure you’ve got your questions written down, and grab your tickets now from Ticketmaster.com.au.
