Saudi Arabia’s General Entertainment Authority has announced its support for the Monster Jam event set to take place this month in Riyadh.

Organised by Feld Entertainment Inc. and Live Entertainment, the event will be held at the King Fahd International Stadium in Riyadh on March 17 and 18.

Monster Jam trucks can fly across 130 feet, a distance greater than 14 cars side by side, and up to 35 feet in the air.

Tickets are priced from SAR30 onwards, a statement said.

Amr AlMadani, CEO of the General Entertainment Authority, said: “As we continue on our journey to build the entertainment offering in the kingdom, the General Entertainment Authority is proud to support one of the best live motorsport shows in the world. With tickets starting at SAR30, the event is a great example of affordable and accessible entertainment in Saudi Arabia.

“Monster Jam is just one of a number of upcoming events that the General Entertainment Authority is helping to bring to the kingdom that cater to all groups in our society and at an affordable price. More exciting announcements will be made in the coming weeks and months.”

The recently created General Entertainment Authority, established as part of Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030 programme, is part of the kingdom’s efforts to diversify its economy.

In October, it supported a show by US dance group iLuminate in Riyadh and more recently, also backed the first-ever Comic Con event in Jeddah.
