megalodon monster jam

The motorsports event Monster Jam returns to Glendale after a pandemic pause on Saturday, May 29, and Sunday, May 30. 

Held at State Farm Stadium, Monster Jam has implemented enhanced health measures to help ensure safety. 

Seating capacity will be reduced at State Farm Stadium to a pod seating structure, which will allow family and friends to safely enjoy all the action while social distancing from other groups in attendance. As an additional precaution for fans, face coverings are required for those age 2 and older, unless otherwise exempted by law. 

Tickets, which start at $20, went on sale Tuesday, April 27, on seatgeek.com. 

The Monster Jam Pit Party will return to Glendale on Saturday and Sunday with limited capacity and enhanced safety measures implemented. 

At the Monster Jam Pit Party, fans can see the massive trucks up close, watch live pre-race interviews and participate in Q&As with the drivers, get pre-signed autograph cards and take pictures. 

Face covering, social distancing, entry screening and other rules apply. Capacity and activities are limited based on event, venue and local authorities’ guidelines, which are subject to change.

Monster Jam has reimagined the live event guest experience and created contactless shopping for fans to order merchandise in advance or on-site from their seat. Once ordered, guests can pick up their items at a convenient, contactless pickup station during the live event.

Glendale fans will witness the Monster Jam athletes tear up the dirt with gravity-defying feats in 12,000-pound Monster Jam trucks going head to head for points in Freestyle, the Skills Challenge and Racing competitions.

Plus, fans can become part of the action by voting for the winner in the Skills Challenge and Freestyle competitions via real-time, in-stadium fan voting on their smartphones. 

The truck lineup marks the first time in regular competition that the three Anderson siblings will battle against each other in the same Monster Jam event: the Grave Digger will be driven by Krysten; fan-favorite Adam trades his black and green wrecking machine for Megalodon; and in a limited-time, special appearance, Ryan gets behind the wheel of Bakugan Dragonoid.

The 12-time Monster Jam World Finals champion Tom Meents competes in Max-D, while Peoria’s Todd LeDuc aims to crush the competition in Monster Energy.  

Adding to this world-class roster are Guinness World Record title holders Bryce Kenny in Great Clips Mohawk Warrior and Bari Musawwir in Zombie, both featured in the August Discovery Channel TV special “Monster Jam: Breaking World Records.” 

Monster Mutt Dalmatian-Galaxy will look to steal the show as Mike Christensen vies for the championship in Vendetta, Paul Jensen returns in Jurassic Attack and Eric Swanson competes in Obsessed, respectively. Wildcard, driven by BJ Johnson, claims the last spot in the epic 12-truck lineup.
