With a brand new banked track, and two elite roller derby teams from the US this event is set to have spectators on the edge of their seats. The DVD will include highlights from each of the 3 battles, behind the scenes interviews and is packed with extra features, giving an explicit insight into Australia's debut RDX Tour.
"This DVD will make you feel like you're actually on tour with this roller derby extravaganza - but without the bruises" explains Head of Acquisitions, Shock Entertainment, Joshua Hibberd.
Banked track roller derby hasn't been seen on Australian soil for almost 30 years, but RDX will mark an explosive return for this incredible action sport, with queens of the banked track L.A. Derby Dolls taking on the world flat track champs the New York Gotham Girl's Roller Derby, bringing their fierce rivalry to Australia.
L.A. Derby Dolls superstars Bombshell Betty, STEFCON 1 and Laguna Beyatch will lace up their skates and take on the likes of New York Gotham Girls' Suzy Hotrod, Fisti Cuffs and Bonnie Thunders.
And as a special bonus for local fans, Australian skaters will be hand-picked to skate with the American teams during the tour, highlighting the fantastic roller derby talent Australia has to offer.
RDX will engage the Australian roller derby community with a thrilling new elite series for the sport, and to generate a whole new fan base for this incredibly exciting action series.
"We are so pumped to be bringing to Australia the two best teams in the world and with a new, purpose-built banked track, RDX will be a defining moment for roller derby, not only in Australia but globally", said FME's VP Live Experiences, Australia, Dustin Lockett.
The RDX shows have been developed with great care to ensure the unique culture of roller derby would be fully respected; FME worked closely with a number of the sport's stakeholders in bringing the concept to life.
"Australia is home to one of the world's fastest growing roller derby communities, with over 90 leagues Nationally, and an ever expanding fan base hooked on the adrenaline, authenticity and athleticism that is roller derby," Lockett continued.
