General Press Release
Prepare for Impact

Don’t miss Impact World Tour New Zealand, an action-packed performance event series set to sweep through the nation from Jan-April 2004. Three teams made up of professional-level skateboarders, bikers, in-line skaters, motorcross riders, musicians, dancers, cultural artists and athletes will perform in large stadium venues, as well as in smaller community settings, putting together a stunning, action-packed, technologically enhanced thrill ride for spectators. Admission will be free.

GX International brings together young men and women from all over the world who perform aggressive skating and biking maneuvers, as well as the very latest in hip-hop dance grooves, all set to a pumping, heart-pounding beat. The 2-hour multimedia presentation is a high energy, entertaining adrenaline rush.

Team Xtreme will blow you away with their amazing feats of strength and athletic prowess. Ripping whole telephone books in half, snapping handcuffs in two, shattering stacks of concrete bricks, and other displays of power and might leaves audiences breathless, then screaming for more.

Island Breeze is a cultural extravaganza, weaving together Pacific Island-influenced dance and musical expressions into an astonishing spectacle of tribal splendour. Stunning costumes, fire dancers, and pounding drums are all part of this intense, awe-inspiring performance.

All three teams feature professional performers from countries around the globe, including New Zealand, Canada, Brazil, and the United States, sharing a positive message of hope and destiny with their audiences.

IWT NZ will be in Gisborne (January 19-25); Wanganui (Jan 26-Feb 1); Hawkes Bay (Feb 2-8); Hutt City (Feb 9-15); Wellington/Porirua (Feb 16-22); Nelson, BOP and Waikato region (Feb 23-29); Hamilton and Tauranga (Mar 1-7); Auckland (Mar 8-21); Christchurch (Mar 22-28); Dunedin and surrounding regions (Mar 29-April 4); Northland (April 5-7).
