A worldwide tour dedicated to American motorcycle stunt daredevil Evel Knievel will be appearing in Newcastle until 4 January 2011. Knievel's eldest son Kelly launched the tour at the Ace Café back on 3 December. He said: "My dad was an inspiration to millions of people and it is my honour to share some of his most treasured possessions and stories with his fans and kids around the world."

For the first time, Evel's original motorcycles, famous jump leathers, personal memorabilia, and untold photos and stories are being exhibited on a wcrld tour for everyone to see and marvel at the wonder of his death defying achievements.
