Tony Hawk’s Boom Boom Huck Jam at the State Fair Saturday

Tony Hawk’s Boom Boom Huck Jam lights up the Delaware State Fair on Saturday. From their site:

Tony Hawk’s Boom Boom HuckJam began in 2003 as a one-off show in Las Vegas. It was the first show of it’s kind, featuring the best skateboarders, bmx riders and freestyle moto-x maniacs in one choreographed extravaganza. The show featured live music by some of the world’s most famous bands…and it was a huge success! So, Tony decided to take it on the road, across the U.S.A. With the best vert ramp money can buy (over $1 million!) and trucks and trucks full of lighting and moto track and stages, Tony and crew hit 31 of the largest arenas across the country.

After two years of taking action sports to the masses, Fox Television stepped in and asked Tony to stage a special Boom Boom HuckJam to air as part of the Super Bowl Sunday television programming. The guys headed to Phoenix and performed the biggest BBHJ ever.

In 2006, Six Flags approached Tony and brought the Boom Boom HuckJam tour to Six Flags amusement parks across the country for two straight summers. To top things off, Six Flags also launched a new, cutting edge roller coaster bearing Tony’s name: Tony Hawk’s Big Spin. On the first day of the 2007 tour in St. Louis, Tony not only performed the BBHJ show, but also road his namesake rollercoaster along with his 83-year old mom and other family members.
