Trucks stuck in the dirt
Last April, we first reported that Monster Jam is eyeing an exhibition leg in Manila and are set to bring their awesome monster trucks to the country for a week of high octane fun.
To those who have been expecting to see those massive monster trucks in action, well, we hate to be the bringer of bad news, but it won't be pushing through. In fact, after contacting the PR firm that handled the initial campaign for the reported organizers of Monster Jam Manila, we were told it has been cancelled altogether.
They had planned for Monster Jam to take place at the SM Mall of Asia grounds, particularly the MOA Arena. Since we first reported that Monster Jam was coming, no outward preparations have taken place (i.e. installing/setting up a dirt surface) nor was there a follow up in terms of marketing or advertising given the proximity to the proposed dates of August 30 to September 4.
We can only venture guesses as to why for now, but we'll update you when we know more.
